So in my travels around this city. I have finally found the best combination of clothes to keep from being hassled and blend in which is important.

1 nice long sleeved dress shirt
1 fluorescent green shirt
1 disgustingly stained but clean oversized tee shirt.
1 pair of brown or black khakis
1 black belt
1 trucker hat
1 plastic I'd badge holder on lanyard
1 olive drab messenger bag

OK here's how the system works. When I'm in the redneck suburbs on the outskirts I rock the flourescent shirt and trucker hat. I'm just another average Joe getting ready to go do some demo and drink some natty light.

But when I go downtown I put on the nice dress shirt over the fluorescent shirt. I rock that plastic ID badge with some bs printed stuff inside. No one actually looks at the badge but since everyone's got one you fit right in.

I do all sorts of bummy stuff hopped up on kratom and nobody even looks twice. A cop literally caught me taking a whiz today and let me go!! In a ritzy alley of the power and light district no less.

On those rare days, I feel like a ghetto adventure, I bust out the skanky shirt from the bag and whamo zamo, I look like a total bum with nothing worth stealing which is pretty much true anyways.

I've come along way since my captain America wife beater !!

You are a trip @AlmostAlwaysLost . That is hilarious. I think the topic of urban camouflage is underrated and quite important.

@jim stobie talks about in his videos, putting on a jumpsuit while riding, and talking it off with preppy clothes underneath when you get into a town to avoid suspicion.

Good topic. The ID badge is a nice touch.

Reminds me of the Life invader mission of GTA5 haha.

Urban camouflage, very clever.
The difference between a homeless nut muttering to himself and a high-society guy not to be arrested could just be the Bluetooth earpiece.

You know, when I started reading this and saw 'green florescent tshirt' I was thinking of how much you would not fit in the city but then, you say redneck suburbs ...genius!

Have you seen the video where @jim stobie acts like a rich trainhopper and only eats gourmet food that one hilarious.

  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
