WG Stretch Knit Jacket – Snow Peak
"A special garment collection entering its third season, the WHOLEGARMENT® series is made in Niigata just down the road from the Snow Peak HQ. Engineered to perform with the natural shape and movement of our bodies, the WHOLEGARMENT® collection is specially knit with both mesh and polyester threads allowing for increased ventilation all throughout. We think these garments are so comfortable that you can even wear them in the summer."

Men Shop in Bulk - NYTimes.com
"WOMEN shop, men stockpile. That’s one theory, anyway, of how men buy clothes differently from women. If women see shopping as an opportunity, a social or even therapeutic activity, the thinking goes, then men see it as a necessary evil, a moment to restock the supply closet.

At the risk of perpetuating sex stereotypes, the archetype may have been Steve Jobs. When Mr. Jobs died in October, he left behind not only a peerless legacy, but a closet full of identical black cotton turtlenecks by Issey Miyake. “If he loved a shirt, he’d order 10 or 100 of them,” his sister, the author Mona Simpson, said in her eulogy.

It was an obsession that many men could relate to. Here, stylish New Yorkers reflect on their wardrobe hoarding."
