Hee. Â I think there are two ways to wear these: One would be as an ironic hightlight to an urban/hipster (i.e. south of 14th street) look. Â The other would be to embrace the paleo-preppy aesthetic and wear them (sockless, natch) with a range of casual things -- khakis and a blazer, pink trousers, seersucker, etc. Â Just be careful that they don't match too much (e.g. NOT with green trou). Â If you don't really do the hideous/preppy resort wear look already, though, I wouldn't start with these, fun as they are. Â C
The irony might well be lost, as the color is so insistent and "textbook" prep. The second avenue suggested by Scylla (no, it's Charybdis) might be available, but the bright prep colors are a trad variant that may be geographically restricted to venues I (or you) don't visit (Martha's Vineyard, in the older section?). If you're interested in these "trad" variants, visit "Ask Andy" but be prepared to spend most of the day.
