    Their aspiring sport-associating buyers are buying "salt life" clothes.

    The traditional buyers will all be in nursing homes in the next 10 years.
    As a native Floridian (transplanted into Texas 8 years ago), I just want to say ugh at "salt life" anything. Cringe.

    My reccomendation would be that you might have to murder him?

    they make some super ugly low quality clothes. unfitted, unattractive. Corporate logo graphic tees and sweatshirts like it's 2005.

    I understand why anyone likes them less than most things I can think of.

    I'm in Tennessee, and nothing brings me joy like seeing a car with a Salt Life sticker taking up the entire rear windshield. It must be hard to live that "salt life" 500 miles from the nearest ocean. Bonus points if they have a hat or t shirt to go with it.

    * And by joy I mean road rage.

    I buy their Extra Invincible merino wool socks (made by Darn Tough), as they're the only ones that I've found that come in business-y colors.

    i dunno about you but, their jacket fits me like shit. it's this big balloon with big fluffy sleeves and i can't even wear it.

    but maybe you're shaped differently than I can, or are in a size range where the other sizes fit better than that?

    It's not very good quality for what you pay. some of the more generic Harringtons on amazon are nicer. The Flint and tinder one is super nice if you like those two colors.

    It fit me fine, but its also possible things have changed there. Maybe I should try something else just for variety anyway?

    red is tough. I mean it looks good but its very much a statement piece that I wouldnt wear frequently.
