2 Steps To Refresh Your Cedar | Live Simply by Annie
It says you can sand the wood, but my hangers are so old, I think the oil is long gone. That probably only works if the hangers are a few years old. Mine are from before 2000. I am sure I need to add cedar oil.

How to Wash a Dress Shirt | Proper Cloth Reference
It's best (and cheapest) to wash a cotton dress shirt in the laundry - you can do this yourself (more time) or at the dry cleaner's (more expensive and they might not treat it great)

Dry cleaning a cotton dress shirt is not recommended, as dry cleaning does not remove water based stains like perspiration and it's pretty expensive ($4-$5 per shirt)

DIY: How to Taper Your Pants - YouTube
Originally looked this up because my business wardrobe looks brand new, but is cut to the style of 20 years ago, when I bought most of it. I want to make my wide-leg slacks into skinny slacks.

Fleece clothing major contributor of microplastics in water - Canadian Geographic
I had no idea. Fleece is made of plastic and when you wash it, fibers come out and pollute the wastewater that is created. Water plants can't filter those fibers out (too small, I guess), so they end up in the oceans and contribute to the enormous plastic waste problem. ............. capitalism-only-profitable-because-externalizing-risk = Gore-Tex is a major maker of fleece - and if they didn't externalize their risk, they'd be sunk like all the other companies I've bookmarked with this tag.

How Eco-Friendly is Bamboo Fabric, Really? | Ecouterre
Bamboo fiber: Vicose is essentially Rayon, which is a regenerated cellulose fiber, which means that a natural raw material is converted through a chemical process into a fiber that falls into a category between naturals and synthetics. The source of cellulose can be wood, paper, cotton fiber, or in this case bamboo. ............... Be sure to read the comments where some people talk about bad information in the article. It's not really bad info, in my opinion, just people being picky, but still good to know.

Men Custom Suits & Custom Shirts | Tailor4Less
I like how they have taken the complicated process of measuring a suit and simplified it. We could use this as a model for doing other products, including "What is a cappucino?" Or "What is a latte?" and other such things.

Layer 8 Clothing at TJ Maxx : running
TJ Maxx and Marshall's are the best places to buy the kind of clothing we recommend for Methode Naturelle. For Winter: TOPS: buy 2-3 thin polyester long sleeve shirts, a "hoodless" polyester hoodie, a full polyester hoodie. BOTTOMS: A pair of Hind spandex pants for a base layer, some Retro Distrikt XL slim fit polyester sweatpants and a looser fit polyester sweatpant. With 2 pairs of wool socks and some waterproof Vibrams, your feet are good. A winter hat and a neck warmer keep you warm up top. Just need to find a good solution for gloves that are both warm and don't get in the way.

Dress Pant Sweatpants | Men's Sweatpants | Betabrand
Would love to get these for when I train with the group. Would be awesome to dress up and work out in what appears to be slacks, a dress shirt, possibly even a fedora or newsboy cap. When I mentioned this to Josh, he said to add a vest to added effect.

Cramer's Camouflage Helps Troops Stay Stealthy : NPR
""I had read that fractals — which are repeating geometric shapes found in nature — would be the ultimate camouflage to put into a camouflage pattern. These are patterns that your brain and subconscious identify, catalog. And then the next time you go into that environment, it ignores all these typical shapes that it sees in the background."

Cool Tools: ALL-ETT Billfold Wallet
The All-Ett billfold, while not stylish, solves all of those problems. The wallet has two pockets -- a deep one for receipts and a shallower one for bills - and a four-card slot system that holds a ton of cards without adding much bulk. Right now I keep about 20 cards (I've had up to 30), and it's about a quarter inch thick, with a few bills/receipts.
