Where's Nate?

No article of clothing is more American than the T-shirt. And I can't seem to clear my personal inventory. Every time Paige and I have a "let's dump a bunch of junk at Goodwill" exercise, I'm forced to reconsider.

I'm not alone. My extensive T-shirt collection harkens back to the early 1990s and can be interpreted as a catalogue of my travels, life experiences, and affinities. Tonight, I'm wearing a Crane Performance Siding shirt that I got for free. My brother-in-law breaks out his "All Johnson T-shirt Weekend", consisting of a variety of UVM and Middlebury schwag every time we see him.

My top five T-shirts:

1) Dorm Damage, "You Girls Like Metal Don'cha?"
2) Corner Bar Hot Dog Hall of Fame
3) Soul Coughing, "El Oso"
4) Yankees Suck!
5) Urge Overkill, "Exit the Dragon" Tour

The good news is that retro is in. And considering my well-worn collection of shirts, I'm suddenly in style again.
