"It's a shirt, Sam. Who cares if it's plaid or stripes?"

"People who don't want to look like a lumberjack care."

"Plaid's cheaper."

"No, they aren't. The packaged shirts are all the same price, plaid and striped and solid."

"Packaged shirts? Dude. You want to go gear up at a Banana Republic, you can do it on your own dime. Way better value from second hand stores. Who's gonna pay twenty bucks for stripes when you can get plaid for a buck?"

"I would."

"College dork."

"Whatever. Look. What about FBI gigs? Have you ever seen a suit with a plaid shirt?"

"No, Sam, that's why there are separate shirts to go with the suit gigs."

"So stripes for suits, plaid for everything else?"

"Nope. Not so cheap for suits, cheap as dirt for everything else."

"But what about plaid?"

"Used plaid is cheap and plentiful, particularly on the west coast. Also tears better for bandaging and is usually more absorbent. You know what our clothes go through on a hunt, Sam. A packaged shirt would run screaming for the nearest dry cleaner."

"...run screaming? Really?"

"You know what I mean. Those packaged shirts are designed for people sitting around in offices. Not hunters."

"Plaid shirts aren't exactly designed for hunting either, Dean. Not our kind of hunting."

"You said it before, Sam. Lumberjacks."

"...what?"

"Plaid shirts - the real kind, not the preppy kind - are designed for lumberjacks."

"How are lumberjacks anything like our kind of hunters?"

"C'mon, Sammy! Thrashing around in the woods with a chainsaw? Maybe getting chased by a bear? Close enough to hunting to count."

"...I think your view of the forest industry is a little distorted, Dean."

"Woods. Chainsaws. Bears. My case is freaking rested."

"Fine. Can we at least stop at a Starbucks for a coffee while we're in Washington State?"

"I keep telling you Sam, they don't sell coffee at Starbucks. They sell froo-froo flavored water for twice the price of a loaf of-"

"Never mind!"

I am laughing so hard I have tears in my eyes!!! Perfect!!! Dean's case for the merits of plaid is based on practicality of bandaging and blood absorbency! LMAO!!! You win.

Bwa! This is adorable.

Oh, flannel. You help a man run from bears. What can't you do?
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 23rd, 2011 03:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
Flannel will save EVERYONE!

Also tears better for bandaging and is usually more absorbent.

I love this! Nothing like buying a shirt based on it's potential bandaging/blood absorbency!

Doesn't everyone?

Bwahahaha! *rotlf*

I AGREE WITH YOU, SAMMY!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 23rd, 2011 03:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
Just a bit, yeah.

"...I think your view of the forest industry is a little distorted, Dean."

Heeeee! I love how they're both so serious about this topic.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 23rd, 2011 03:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
It's plaid! How can anyone not be serious about plaid!
ficwriter1966 From: ficwriter1966 Date: August 23rd, 2011 11:24 am (UTC) (Link)
Dude! You wrote SPN!

This is awesome. A plaid button-down with a suit - I love it. You go, Dean - start your own trends!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 23rd, 2011 03:52 pm (UTC) (Link)
Once in a while it happens. I've been pretty blocked from all sides lately and have a few things to write that I owe from auctions, so it's been driving me nuts.

Aww, boys. *snuggles them* This is so cute.

(Query: how did you get your header single-spaced? I can't figure out how to get the extra space out of my journal.)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 23rd, 2011 03:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
I use the HTML editor and include the HTML codes for bold, italics etc while writing. The Rich Text editor is useless and tends to mangle things frequently.

I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay....damn you!!! Lmao awesome. I guess I know what to use my plaid flannel pj bottoms for when they wear out (I shall see how absorbent Roots fabric is;)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 23rd, 2011 03:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Flannel is very absorbent. Sorry about the earworm. XD
irismay42 From: irismay42 Date: August 23rd, 2011 05:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
HAHAHAH! So that's why they wear plaid all the time! (Particularly liked the bandages and absorbency part!)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 23rd, 2011 05:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
Pragmatism is the Winchester watchword.

I love this so very hard :D
lordy I can see this argument :)

"...full of foam and cinnamon brown'o"

Glad you did!

Pah! Starbucks doesn't sell water. They sell hot, coffee-flavoured milkshakes.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 24th, 2011 04:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
And cold coffee-flavored milkshakes too! I suspect Dean was only willing to try their 'just a plain, regular coffee, dammit!', though, and has not gotten within sipping distance of their more ornate caffeine perversions.
