I am UnionBay’s whore. Perhaps they have quite a few floating around, but i definitely rank rather high on the list. I bought my first UB shirt way back in 8th grade, when “Undone” by Weezer first hit the radio. The shirt was soon followed, almost coincidentally, by another shirt. Realizing that i liked both shirts, soon jeans were bought to accompany them. Not long thereafter i began my high school carreer, and Freshmen year was outfitted in corduroy and flannel, comfy and big enough to obscure my skeltal frame. Sophmore year began my love of sparkly things, but i still stuck by UnionBay and made sure to obtain both their simple and sporty T’s, carge khaki pants, and their fun polyester retro shirts. Freshman year of college was dotted with more khaki, long sleeved T-shirts, and trendy, baggy pants with snaps and pull strings. I couldn’t tell you why i am so obsessed with UB clothing; i ridicule people who dress only from Gap, Nike, or Tommy Hill. While their clothing amkes people a walking billboard or manequin, i feel as though my style simply collides with UB enough to make it practical to buy their clothing. To be sure, there are items in the UB collection that i find either hideous or totally impractical, and i’ll be the first to admit it. However, almost everything they’ve ever made magically matches everything else, and i know exactly how their clothes will fit me. Today i came home with a pair of jean shorts that don’t fall off my ass and the most wonderful shiny jeans ever made. Already i am coordinating these new items with older parts of the UB catalogue in my head. One day, when i am a burgeoning rock star, i hope that they’ll sponsor my tour. Especially since i’ll assuredly be wearing their clothes at almost every casual appearance along the way.
