I hate Christmas

Typically, Christmas is easy. My wife says, "get what you want" and then she gets what she wants. We ask the kids what they want, and boom. Done.

But this year is different.

This year my wife said, "Find us some new, quality towels."

OK. No problem, right? In the words of the great Jeremy Clarkson, "How haaaaaaaard could it beeeeeee"? The world of towels is a world of shit. There's no other way to sum it up. I've been looking at towels for two days now. Apparently, they're all made in Bangladesh and they all suck.

No wonder she put this on me. I bet she looked for about 20 seconds, said, "bump this" and handed it off to me. God is going to get her for this one day...

Ah towels. Lots of choices but relatively few reliable sources. Sears used to be good. Other then that I'd hit up a big Bath and Kitchen Center.
Go for good plain cotton for absorption and comfort.

Be forewarned - the best, and I mean the very best towels, are only available after at least six months of washing. Here is the definition of the perfect blend of fluff, absorption and the least amount of dryer lint.:LOL:

I gave up on that a long time ago. I try to shop as best I can, by stores or online and simply used them down, then rebuy.

Best Towels I ever bought was overseas in Turkey. Bursa, Turkey. They specialized in the biggest softest nicest towels I’ve ever used. I brought them back stateside.

All colours too.

We have lost all our craft men’s ship here in the US, especially in textiles.
