Well, OK, maybe I am, just a bit.
This morning, I saw a man walking down the street in the following ensemble.
-Quilted down jacket (tan)
I’m not going to judge this man in terms of being fashionable. I kind of doubt he would care if I did, but my more pressing issue is how does one actually arrive at wearing this combination of items? The shorts and the Crocs I can see–it’s warm day (around 65 degrees at the point) and he’s shuffling around the house in shorts. Perhaps he discovers he needs to go out to ______ (insert pressing errand here), so he slips on his Crocs (notice how I’m not even expressing my disdain for foam footwear), but wait. It’s maybe a little too cool to go out bare chested (not that I’m sure he was underneath his jacket, but just go with me here). Hmm, what’s a good choice with shorts and Crocs for an unseasonably warm day? A down jacket! Even better, it makes the outfit monochromatic, which I hear is the new black.
