Hooded sweatshirts and pullovers, also known as hoodies, are one of the most popular articles of clothing among the younger generation of adults and teens.

Another aspect to check is the bottom of the sole. Since you will be treading on top of ice and snow and other wet elements it’s important to find something as slip resistant as possible. Consider these selections from Dave’s New York:

We’ve made the executive decision to not talk about tomorrow being World Rabies Day (though we really hope the United Nations mentions it while they’re still in General Assembly mode because, well, they started the whole thing in 2007 and…whups, okay, we’re not gonna talk about it). Tomorrow is, then, Moon Unit Zappa’s birthday. That’s Frank’s daughter. And Naomi Watts. And it’s Teachers’ Day in Taiwan. Which ends up as one mishmash of a day. We say, keep things in order with the clothes on you with these great selections from Dave’s New York:
The North Face Shoes keeps you perfectly in stride in a pair of The North Face Men’s Ultra 105 GTX XCR sneakers.

We’re no psychics, but this blog is going to take a stand and make a prediction: The sun will come up tomorrow. Whups. Wrong prediction. Here it is: We are officially past the brutal dog days of summer. We might get a touch of Indian Summer; it’s happened before, it’s likely to happen again. Still: the humidity seems to have broken—at least here on the east coast. If that’s true, well, it might well be time to adjust the wardrobe.

Tomorrow is National Aviation Day, when we celebrate our passion for flight. But that’s not the whole story, of course. The research department of this blog has uncovered the backstory: August 19th is birthday of Orville Wright, half the storied Wright Brother, who first had us soaring like birds. FDR proclaimed the holiday on Orville’s birthday. And so we’re really celebrating Orville Day. But what of his brother, Wilbur? And why not give Wilbur the aviation holiday? We believe Wilburs of the world need more honoring. Until then, we’ll honor you with some really terrific merchandise.
