I really dislike shopping. It brings out the worst in me. I become cranky and fatigued within 5 minutes of entering a store. I find this is particularly the case when shopping for clothing.

There are a few exceptions… but it usually involves bribing me with a muffin, or promising me that a cream puff is going to be at the center of the store we are going to. I will go anywhere for cream.

On our fishing trip recently, my brother Gordon whipped out something called a “buff.” He was very proud of this buff because of its versatility and usefulness in cold weather conditions.

Did I mention we were in cold weather conditions?

He discovered this buff while watching some sort of sports game on some sort of sports channel.

I think it was an advertisement. It is from a place called Buff Wear. They have all sorts of colors. They also model the versatility of the buff, but rather than have them do it, I figured I’d have Gordon do it for you. Since he kept reminding me that he had one and I didn’t.

It will come down below your nose if you want fresh air, though it can sit squarely above it as well. This is particularly handy during Arctic weather conditions on a Spring morning in Washington.

And as the pressure rises and you feel warmer, it can go below your chin. While still keeping your head warm.

And then if you’re feeling really awesome and it’s getting hotter out there and you maybe even start to sweat… you can pull the bandana move.

Or… now this is only if you’re feeling wild… you can do…

The Pirate.

And fasten it in a little knot behind your head if you want a tight fit.

So there you have it. The BUFF. If I can help you do a little online ordering to avoid mall fatigue, then I’ve done my job.

This concludes the fashion portion of my blog writing.

Until I find something else of buff caliber. Or I’m eating a cream puff and feel inspired.

    That looks suspiciously like the buff's they have been using on Survivor for 20 seasons. Many of the ladies on that show have managed to make their buff work as sort of halter top.

    I think this could launch Gordon's career as a model.

      haha yeah, but a cream puff would work just as well for me… maybe not for you?

    We wear buff's for fishing for UPF(V) protection. Love them. They made my Christmas Gift list as well! Seriously incredibly versatile, but I think in order to wear it as a top you would have to go without eating for a few weeks like the survivor contestants.
