    simulacrum set

    Hi,

    I will never, in my life, decide to stop wearing gray sweatshirts, so having a perfect simulacrum set allows me to focus my anxiety on my work or whether or not I am dying. Adam Kimmel makes — or made two years ago — these ultimate gray sweatshirts. Heavy but not stuffy, enough to beat a chill but also not trapping, so you could run away without breaking a sweat, perfect for writing with the window open.

    I bought one and liked it so much — and feared their disappearance — I bought two more. All three are currently in rotation in my life, all identical, except one has a very slight soup stain half the way down.


    What does "simulacrum set" mean?
    What is the meaning of "set"?

    He means he has a bunch of grey sweatshirts, more or less identical to each other. That is all he ever wears, apparently.

    Re: simulacrum set

    I actually just learned this word last week. It was in my "word of the day " e-mail.

    I don't believe it's being used correctly here.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
