I hope this is not an obsolete question. I went shopping last weekend and noticed many 'mall' retailers, such as Express, Club Monaco, and Zara, were carrying those candy striped shirts. I think it's been about two years since I first saw them so the question is not whether the style is the latest fad or not, but whether it's getting played out and rapidly going out of style. (Or is it already out?) Personally I'm rather fond of those jaunty stripes and would be sorry to see them go. Do you think they have a life of their own, like faded boot cut jeans? Thanks.
