re: Hurray! My jeans are no longer “flying at half-mast”

If they started handing out free Saddleback belts to folks sporting low-rider pants... I would be tempted to take a "low-rider stroll" around town myself :-)

I remember when I was a young lad it took forever to persuade my mom to let me wear denim jeans... ...older folks were always telling us how strange our style of dress was... I thought "I won't be like that when I grow up"... ...but I must admit that when I see a youngster today with his pants looking like they are just about to fall down and a 6 to 9-inch band of his undershorts showing, I hand help thinking to myself "OMG, you look like such a plonker!" :-)

Don't tell me -- email the folks at Saddleback and tell them what a wonderful (unpaid) job I'm doing... ...try to casually drop into the conversation that I really REALLY like their classic Messenger Bag (in dark coffee brown) [grin]

I think some municipalities in the U.S. have actually outlawed such lowrider pants. On the other hand, none of them are handing out free belts yet.

I had a few pairs of pants like that, and they were then referred to as "high-waters", probably because you could wade through a creek without getting them wet. If you were wearing a pair, other neighborhood kids might announce your arrival by saying, "Here come the floods!"

Max, take advice from your descendants; your pants are SUPPOSED to be drooping, crotch just above the knee, hem (what's left of it) in the mud, shorts ( in contrasting colour) clearly visible above the belt line. New belt indeed....

Hey, Max, maybe you should get a kickback from Saddleback for posting glowing comments about their belts! Bunches of us are probably thinking we do need a new belt, especially with the absolute crap coming from China these days. Quality products are getting harder and harder to find, and I always appreciate somebody letting me know where to find good stuff. BTW, don't assume that the stuff from China is less expensive; case in point, recently I went to the pet supply store to buy a new retractable dog leash. The Chinese one was $27.99, while the German one was $21.99! I bought the German one of course, and it's great. Caveat emptor!

I don't know what the Norwegian approach to energy consumption is, but if it is anything like Canada it is going to be pretty warm indoors- wear layers. As to warmth, I have one word- down.

I can't wait for you to see it in the real world -- when you receive it, please post a comment here saying what you think (What color did you go for?)

I'm going to need some warm clothing for my trip to Norway in Feb ... I have no idea what to expect (except that it's going to be #$%^ cold :-)
