30. Tier Theory: Introduction & Tier One

Hi all,

There's been a lack of updates since I moved house recently. Unfortunately, the Internet can't be boxed with your underwear and brought along quickly and easily.

When I started this blog last year, I did a 'Shirt Buying Guide'. In retrospect, it's pretty crap. But - there was a fundamental theory conveyed.

It was a theory of tiers, where clothing is graded on formality. The purpose of this theory is that when you go out, your outfit is consistent from head to toe. Let's start with Tier One.

Tier One is what you could label as 'Home Casual'. This is the absolute lowest of the low, anything goes. Comfort is the sole factor. Gym clothes, yard work clothes etc. are also included.

Here's a few examples:

Gym singlet, gym shorts, white short socks and busted up trainers.

Crappy old band t-shirt, pyjama pants, thongs and ugg boots.

In relation to ugg boots, these aren't allowed to leave your driveway. There is only one circumstance which this is acceptable, being a humble (and quick) run to the servo. Even this is cringeworthy.  Never shall you set foot in a shopping centre with ugg boots. Ever ever ever ever. Girls, stop doing it. Gents - never, servos only.

Next week, I'll cover 'Street Casual'.


Since I've been away, I've been pretty busy in the kitchen.

Slow cooked shredded chicken tacos. Served with all of the trimmings.

Warm chocolate pudding cake with vanilla ice cream. THIS WAS SO GOOD!
