Shorts and Coats

Hello IGWers,

The fashion world has gone out on a limb again. This time they have declared that it is acceptable to wear shorts with a tie and a sports coat. This type of action seems more suitable for Rodney Dangerfield or Adam Sandler, but why is upper class America going to this trend?

I feel a little underdressed wearing the wrong shoes, but men not wearing full pants seems a little weird. That is unless you work in ultra-hip advertising or marketing. I just don’t see any I-bankers getting any respect at all strolling into work wearing shorts. I’m pretty sure they have hung men for lesser offenses.

Someone in the creative fashion industry wanted to make a bold statement and they certainly have, but it is a little crazy to assume that chopping off the pants is the best way to go. If this continues, I’m suiting up in a shirt, tie, sport coat, shoes with no socks, miller lite wrist band, iPhone, and Google hat. People may stop and stare, but I’m wired so I’ll undoubtedly turn their voices back over to Overheard in Minneapolis.

This just goes to show you that if you wait long enough you will be able to find whatever fasion is suitable for your liking.

To middle-aged men testing company policy in shorts and ties!
