It’s officially September now, which means it’s time to reflect on how we spent the dog days of summer. Did you have a good summer? Did you make boozy popsicles? Did you smile broadly while wearing a sunhat the size of a Mini Cooper? If so, good work! Want to know what I did this summer?

Seriously though, I think 2012 will go down in history as the Summer Of Men’s Tank Tops (SOMTT for short).
