Complexity and Collars: #30folds30days, Valley Fold, Day 23

I remember the first time I talked to someone who actually knew¬†football. Not in the way that they could name every player on their favorite football team, or knew all the fantasy scores.

In college, it was rare that you needed to wear a tie. I mean some people did, if they were in something dorky like student government. Then you wore a tie for meetings and stuff.

Some Words About Denim: #30folds30days, Four Point Fold, Day 17

Denim is a quintessentially American piece of clothing. Which is to say that its origins are rooted outside of the country, and its trail through history¬†spreads across the globe.
