I have had a classy ensemble for one year now!

For my 33rd birthday last year, I received some rather interesting things.  I got four classy items just over a year ago … and I call the items my classy ensemble.  I bought two of the items on eBay, I bought another item at JCPenney at The Mall at Robinson and I bought another item at T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods in Bridgeville.

The items that make up my classy ensemble are the grey Nike half-zip pullover, the grey Chaps polo shirt, the purple T-shirt from Arizona and the dark wash jeans from Chaps.  I have worn all four of these items at once a couple of times over the past year.  Now, I probably won’t wear all of these items at once, but, as you may know, I have worn all of these items separately many times over the past year.  Of course, any or all of these four items give me class every time I wear them.  I may have mixed up either two or three of these items at various times over the past year, but I rarely had the chance to wear all four of these items at the same time.  Will I do it again someday?  Maybe.

Just for fun, I’m also going to show you some photos of me wearing any or all of these items over the past year.  Yes, last May, I wore all four of these items in two of those photos.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For May 2020

Can you believe it?  The month of May is almost here … and, during the month of April, lots of people, including myself, have had to stay home a lot.  I do still walk to my mailbox whenever I have to, but that’s pretty much it.  I have been able to write some neat blog posts on my home computer while we all have had to stay at home during the Coronavirus Outbreak.  I will give you guys some more blog posts in May … and my features will be taking a well-deserved break in May.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “I have owned my DBZ T-shirt for one year!”  I will talk about my DBZ T-shirt in a blog post in May.  I would like to thank my neighbor and friend, Michael Spicer, for getting me the DBZ T-shirt for my 33rd birthday last year.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph Has Owned His Grey Penguins Shirt For Four Years Now!”  I will talk about my grey Penguins T-shirt in a blog post in May.  Me and my friend, Chuck Lazzini, who occasionally follows this blog, have both owned that shirt for almost four years now.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Guess who is 34 today?”  In the blog post, I will wish myself a happy 34th birthday.  I plan on writing that blog post at around 7:00 on Friday morning.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “I have had a classy ensemble for one year now!”  I will talk about some of my classy outfits in a blog post in May … and they are the purple crew neck T-shirt from Arizona, my dark wash jeans from Chaps, my grey polo shirt from Chaps and my grey half-zip pullover from Nike.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Blog Post Number 1,375 Is About A Classy Sweater!”  I can’t tell you which sweater I’ll be talking about just yet, but I can assure you … the sweater will be a classy one.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Did I get any presents for my 34th birthday?”  Now, I probably won’t get too many presents this year because of the COVID-19 Outbreak, but I know I will get at least one birthday present this year.  I will show you the presents, if I have more than one of them, in a blog post in May.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “8,000 Views And Counting.”  My blog will hit the 8,000-views mark in May … and I will talk about the event in a blog post whenever it does occur.

I will give my features a break in May … and, of course, I will give you some fantastic blog posts in May.  Some of them may catch your eye.  Stay safe and enjoy your day, my friends!

Joseph’s 1,325th Blog Post Is About A Classy Shirt!

Today, I am writing my 1,325th blog post … and, in the post, I will talk about a very classy shirt.  I got this shirt as a Christmas present nearly three months ago … and I have worn it several times since I got it.

Well, without further ado, let me tell you which shirt I’ll be talking about in today’s blog post.

This is my red and blue Saddlebred polo shirt, which is the subject of my 1,325th blog post. The shirt is very classy … and I got it for Christmas nearly three months ago.

Today, I would like to talk about my red and blue Saddlebred polo shirt, which I got for Christmas nearly three months ago.  I really like this shirt.  It is a very classy polo shirt … and I have worn it several times since I got it.  The shirt is red and blue … and there’s also a pocket on the front of the shirt.  The shirt’s collar is blue.  There are some blue stripes on the shirt … and you can see some red stripes as well.  There are also some thin white lines inside of the red stripes.  In the blue stripes, you can see some thin blue stripes.

As you can see here, I really like my red and blue Saddlebred polo shirt … and I hope you guys do also.  I will continue to wear it as we go through Spring.

At some point in March, I will write my 1,325th blog post … and it will be entitled “Joseph’s 1,325th Blog Post Is About A Classy Shirt!”  I can’t tell you which shirt I’ll be talking about yet.  I can assure you … the shirt that I’ll be talking about in that blog post will be a classy one.  I will give you a hint.  It will be about one of my polo shirts.

Derek Papakie Turns 30 Today!

Today, I would like to wish my cousin, Derek Papakie, a happy 30th birthday.  Derek is one of the classiest people I have ever known.  He is both a fantastic friend and a terrific cousin … and he has been a terrific father since last July.

Now, in the first half of the 2010s, Derek and I were “twinning” a lot.  We would wear matching T-shirts, matching jackets, matching sandals, matching sports jerseys, matching hats and even matching polo shirts.

So, today, I would like to say “happy 30th birthday” to Derek Papakie.  Happy 30th birthday, Derek!

Joseph’s Raises The Collar On His Polo Shirt

On January 7, 2020, I wanted to try something a little bit different.  As you probably know, I like polo shirts a lot … and I like the way that they make the collars on those shirts.  Now, while I was wearing my grey Chaps polo shirt on that day, I wanted to put the collar up on my shirt.  I had never really done anything like that before, but, since we are in both a new year and a new decade, I wanted to try new things.  Now, I think that look was a somewhat interesting one to me.  I probably won’t do anything like that for a while, but who knows?  I may give it a try again at some point in the near future.

I also wore my green South Fayette Lacrosse pullover over the polo shirt on that day.  It adds more class to the look that I was going for this past Tuesday.

Joseph’s New Saddlebred Polo Shirt

I got a classy and casual polo shirt as a Christmas present in 2019 … and I really like it a lot.  The shirt is from Saddlebred … and it is red and blue.  There are a lot of stripes on the shirt … and there is also a pocket on the front of the shirt.  How neat is that?

Now, I will wear the shirt mainly with jeans at first … and, then, I will try to wear it with shorts and dress pants whenever I am able to do so.  In my opinion, I think it goes nicely with just blue jeans.

I hope you guys like this shirt as much as I do.  It is full of class.
