darkwolfie and I caught a few minutes of tonight's episode of Queer Eye For The Straight Guy, where they made of this guy who apparently plays with MSR, Ltd, otherwise known as The Kingdom of Acre. Said guy has a roommate, also a medievalist, and the Fab Five went through his room, too, where they discovered a tunic made out of crushed velvet.
"Crushed velvet!" says my beloved. "I'd never be caught dead in crushed velvet."
I was waiting for him to say something like "it's way too girly," or "it'd be too hot."
"It's not period."
Bliss. My husband is a garb snob. (He's a garb snob who doesn't sew, mind, but still...) I'm so proud.
