When you made the plan on Wednesday, Sunday night dinner with friends at Parlor didn’t sound like a visit to the seventh circle of hell.
But now that Sunday’s rolled around, nothing seems worse than parting with your remote or changing out of your hoodie.
Lucky for you, there’s Mike & Chris, a new take on everyone’s favorite hooded jacket. Unlike the ratty zip-up number that has become your second skin, these hoodies are made of a cozy, lightweight fleece and come in a bunch of lovingly worn fall colors like army green and rust.
With oversize buttons, butterfly collars, and a trench-style belt, they’re great for bumming around or stepping out. For the leather lover, there’s a distressed lambskin hoodie in hues like black and indigo — the perfect compromise for when you need to dress up but want to stay chilled out.
So you can make dinner without changing a thing.
But you should probably leave the remote at home.
