Jay DeMerit’s buddy buys Desigual monkey shirt

Jay.Demerit.and.Ashley.McIvorJay DeMerit, who announced his retirement last week as captain of Vancouver’s Whitecaps soccer team, popped into Angel on Monday with two friends — one bought a Desigual shirt called  Monkey 3D.

Desigual.man.TS.MONKEY.3D.red.SS2014.41T1472_3144 Desigual.MONKEY.3D.blue.SS2014I told Jay that I knew his mother, who had dropped by the store some years ago, after Jay first moved to Vancouver. “You know my mother?” he asked. “Yes, she’s great,” I replied. Jay agreed, giving me a high five.

Jay’s buddy, by the way, wanted the monkey shirt in a medium. I told him to try a large, saying it was like a “Spanish medium.” It fit him perfectly.

As the trio left, I heard Jay jokingly say to his buddy: “It’s not a large, it’s a Spanish medium.”

Jay lives in Gastown and often washes his cool car — an orange 1969 Camaro SS convertible with a white top and interior — on the street outside his apartment.
