I have some today, after it's in a plastic bag, and my nice crunchy crust has equalized moisture with the rest of the bread, and it's not all crunchy and fun now.
How would a guy store the bread so the crust might retain some of that fresh from the oven textural goodness?
Don't put it in a plastic bag. There's really nothing else you can do.
