I was leafing through the paper and saw an article on the reduction in maximum cooler size allowed at the Martinsville Speedway, which is my local NASCAR track. Â While that was neither here nor there in my conciousness, the picture they used of three fans loading their cooler with Bud got me to thinking. The three men were decently dressed, but the whole look was something generically 'rural/suburban.' Â Each was wearing tucked-in t-shirts, regular to relaxed jeans, and either white cross-trainers or workboots. Â A couple of them had wrap-around sunglasses, and one had a bushy mustache. Â The hat choices were interesting as well. Â While one was hatless, the others had bright colored fan caps that contrasted with the relative sedateness of the rest of their outfits. I know a lot of people who dress like this, partly out of lifestyle, partly out of utility, partly out of economy. Â It's a common look where I live. Â Though I don't dress like this neccesarily, I don't think it's a horrible look, just not mine. Â I guess my question is: Â does anyone else notice this look wher they live, is it fashionable to anyone (or if not, why not) and, if it's not cool, can it be 'fixed' while allowing these people to still be themselves?
