    High contrast looks in winter (not really applicable with light cotton versions like yours though), bright colors in summer. Bright polos, sport shirts...

    just because you can doesnt mean you should. The only time a man is ever able to wear flip flops is when the are ON the beach. not near, not close, not on the way to ...but ON THE BEACH.

    I agree on the desert boots though. A brown suede with white pants looks great.


    When I slouch it up for the summer I go whole hog. My flipflops make their way waaaayyyy off the beach.

    Off white are awesome! Just wear a pink or red shirt with a light blue sport coat. Or without a sport coat. Or do a light blue shirt and a gray sport coat. Possibilities are endless. The only problem is that they get dirty very fast. You have to think about where you're going before even considering putting them on.

    Yup, the moment you put on white pants you're playing an old-school arcade bullet hell game versus mud.

    Do wait until Memorial Day ... unless you live in the tropics.

    Do you wear a vest at all times in public? Because a shirt is really more like underwear. Or it was 150 years ago. But guess what, times change. Change with them or be like the old guy who sits on his porch shooting at kids for stepping on his lawn (they do shoot at them outside of Texas, right?).

    To each his own.

    This brings up a good question though, is it then absolutely pointless to sell flip flops in kansas?

    Which brings up an even greater question, is it absolutely pointless to live in Kansas?

    Do you sit down or lean against anything when you wear those whites? Because if I am to wear a white pair I would be too paranoid about getting them stained.

    As someone who used to live there, I can tell you that a lot of people wear them there.

    Mostly yes, unless you're around the Kansas City area.

    Do not ever urinate when drunk...

    Could be a sartorial faux-pas...

    I just accept the mortality of white pants the way I accept my own mortality.

    All things ephemeral.
