Back To The Near Short Sleeves No Sleeves

I wanted to post this update earlier in the month, I wanted to wait a little until I had more I could talk about. Then when the waiting was over, I was helping a friend for about two weeks build/reestablish a web site (through WordPress) I’ve been apart of for the better part of a decade. I will talk more about that in a separate post.

Even with helping him, I’ve still been on enough of a BTTF kick to continue putting together my “Marty” clothing costume. Last Friday I ordered the two shirts I would need to hopefully complete my upper half. The first shirt is a black and blue checkered patten shirt that is the closest I’ve found to the Shah Safari. It’s an IZOD Check Woven shirt, (in Mazarine blue/white) from J.C Penney’s site. It was also part of there Summer clearance. That 15% card helped with the shipping cost. It’s been shipped through USPS, hasn’t arrived yet, and the tracking information has barely been updated this morning. Hopefully I’ll have it by Monday.

**Update**

The Mazarine blue/white check woven shirt arrived this afternoon. I chose standard shipping, it would have been good if the tracking had updated a little quicker. I tried it on after lunch, it fits alright, has a closer look to the Shah Safari worn by Michael J. Fox. I even briefly wore the “Deep Red” t-shirt from LL. Bean. I liked how they looked.

The other shirt I ordered is an L.L Bean unshrinkable T-shirt in a Deep Red color. This is the same tee I had ordered partially because of my “Marty” clothing costume in 2007. As an alternative, I may eventually buy a navy blue one. I know Marty seemed to like his reds, most of my life blue has been more of my color. Thankfully Marty didn’t pick out a bright red tee that Friday morning. 😉 Thanks to L.L Bean using UPS and free shipping my “deep red” t-shirt/under shirt has already arrived.

I’ve been wanting to order the “puffy” vest since 2007, I thought I may have needed to wait a little longer. When I saw that the vest I found which has been on sale had sizes and colors out of stock I decided to order before the same thing could happen. The “puffy” vest is a down vest from Lands’ End. I chose the Sangria color which to me is the closest to the “burnt orange” Class-V vest worn by Michael J. Fox. I ordered it earlier in the week, it hasn’t shipped yet.

**Update**

Maybe blogging gets things done, either that or purely coincidental. 😉 I received a shipping email from Land’s End this afternoon. I’ll be able to track my order, hopefully its updates quicker then J.C Penney.

**Update, 6:35 PM**

The tracking information for Lands End is through UPS. According to UPS my delivery is scheduled for next Wednesday. I look forward to it.

I also wanted to order the mirrored aviator sun glasses. I decided to wait on that until at least next week.
