I'm older than moo is. (0)
Also, last week while I was on vacation, I wore an AA terry cloth polo with seersucker shorts (which I believe were from Kohl's) and MMM GAT lows (which I swapped out for Birkenstocks when I went to the beach).
Right. Because they are so 'ordinary' and ubiquitous, people think that makes them an easy-to-wear staple item. But actually it's quite rare to see them done well - and this would be in exactly the way you outline here.
