Correction on Tangerine Shirt

The correction is that I'm actually not an ingrate, I appreciate that they took the time to design a shirt that some will really like. But, still, it's not the shirt that you've come to expect from the SSS:

Tangerine is the new swirlymagism.

It's nice to know that someone reads this thing even when it is patently boring. And that this person can spell swirlymagism is an added bonus.

Yawn... especially if you wear it buttoned up to the neck, as shown.

Um, OK, if this shirt is provided by something called the "Singlehanded Sailing Society," it would seem to me that you wouldn't have to worry about what your crew thought, since your crew would be you.

Or are you like Tillerman, with multiple personalities?

Zen said...

Yeah, but the color makes it KInda cool in it's Bev Hills geekiness

My spidey-sense told me there was something non-sailing related happening here today.

I'd call it more of a "pale pumpkin". And I think it resides squarely in the "so bad it's good" category. Right next to Sperry Topsiders.

Orange is fast.

Is tangerine fast?

He: Tangerine, she is all they claim
With her eyes of night and lips as bright as flame
Tangerine, when she dances by, senoritas stare and caballeros sigh
And I've seen toasts to Tangerine
Raised in every bar across the Argentine
Yes, she has them all on the run, but her heart belongs to just one
Her heart belongs to Tangerine
She: Tangerine, she is all they say
With mascara'd eye and shadow by Dache.
Tangerine, with her lips of flame
If the color keeps, Louis Philippe's to blame.
And I've seen clothes on Tangerine
Where the label says "From Macy's Mezzanine".
Yes, she's got the guys in a whirl, but she's only fooling one girl
She's only fooling Tangerine!

My wife the professionally-trained designer immediately replied "coral" when I asked her, "What would you call this color of orange?" Stick that in your swirlymagism and smoke it.
