If you’re 6-feet-4-inches tall, and you weigh ___ (a lot), you don’t have very many opportunities to inherit hand-me-down clothes. It doesn’t help that I’m an only child, either.

I will soon be wearing someone else’s shorts because I just bought some vintage shortpants. It’s hard when you’re a big guy to buy used clothes. I always say if I was normal sized I’d dress SO great. But I guess you’ll have to just take my word for it. Anyway, I found a pair of used shorts at a vintage shop in the Loop and snatched ’em up for 12 bucks. They are currently washing to remove the germs of the previous owner(s). It’s exciting to buy clothes, even if they’re crappy shorts that somebody else decided weren’t good enough for them any more.
