Fig, Prosciutto, and Gruyère Panini
We have a guest post by B, who has a few words to share on this awesome giveaway by wearFIGS (and on being the patient husband of a food blogger)!
Being a husband of a food blogger leads to lots of delayed gratification – like not being allowed to ever eat anything unless there’s daylight and the arrangement is perfect even if I’m hangry. It makes Natalie happy so I put up with it.
Although I prefer to be “The Mysterious B” and never write/post for the blog, my wife has compelled me to write a post because I know way more about scrubs and comfort than her.
One of the perks of being a surgical resident is not having to wear clinic clothes. Seeing my wife dress up in nice clothes and go to the hospital makes me cringe. I’m sorry, honey, but you chose the wrong specialty.
I consider myself very fortunate to be able to wear scrubs all day, everyday— they’re light and if I get blood on them who cares? The hospital will wash them.
Attendings at my hospital in NYC are required to wear suits. My surgery attending said, “I thought the perk of being an attending is wearing what you want. If I wanted to wear suits instead of scrubs, I would have been a banker.”
I am a creature of comfort. I wore basketball shorts and T-shirts in college, sweats pants during med school, and now I wear scrubs all the time, even as pajamas (Natalie makes sure they’re clean).
Attire-wise, its been a very comfortable decade for me and I’ll continue it forever (or as long as I can).
Helping me continue that trend of comfort is wearFIGS and their awesome vest. The vest is form fitting, comfortable (obviously), has many pockets to carry all my crap – tape, scissors, betadine sticks, gauze, antibiotic ointments, and blades.
It’s also stylish, which my wife wishes upon more of my clothes (too bad, she’s locked in!).
Any guy looking for something to wear in the hospital when it gets cold will be had pressed to do better (or wives/girlfriends wishing their parters to be more stylish). Or the vest can be used for everyday wear.
What are you waiting for? Go get it!
