Whither thou, HTJ?


It's been about two months since Heavy Tweed Jacket, the American ex-pat living in Japan, took his blog down. I'm sure that I'm not the only one who misses his seemingly endless archive of old Brooks Brothers, J. Press and LL Bean catalogs, along with his insights into Japanese culture and occasional delicious-looking recipe ideas. I know that he went on hiatus sometime back in 2008, but I hope that he is doing alright and will be returning soon.

I know I'm not all up on "The Curriculum" like a lot of you cats, but HTJ was the truth.

HTJ was the best.

Isn't there a pattern of long absence on his part?

Even so, he is, as you say, much missed.

He's commented on my blog a few times, but hasn't responded to questions about where he's been or when he's coming back. Hopefully it will be soon.

That was hands down the greatest blog I've ever come across. I wish he would have at least left the site up to browse the archives.

I miss his blog and his blogroll.

He posted a comment over on longwing's blog and hinted at a possible return.

Memphis-
Thanks for the post. I didn't realize that Longwing's blog was back up. I put it back on my blogroll.

Trip, Thanks for the blogroll add, how do I get to be a damn fine read? (Prime example of a question that answers itself)

HTJ,

There are many of us who hope that the break won't be a very long one.
