Absolutely, you should believe him, Ernest. I liked in Texas for five years, was married (briefly) to a farmer's daughter there, and spend a fair amount of time with California rednecks. Believe me, there is nothing that Joe Bob, Bubba, Buford and Cooter would rather have than a bespoke Glenn plaid suit in shades of brown and a good pair of Edward Green antiqued shoes in brown. In their world, that is the equivalent of bagging a 12-point buck, catching a 30-pound bass or nailing a Daisy Duke-lookalike. I will add that only the lowest and most degraded of white trash--methamphetamine users and like--shop the Allen-Edmonds outlets, where they invariably favor brown or chili. Dogfighters, however, (or so I have been informed) favor burgundy cordovans, especially the Allen-Edmonds MacNeil, because the cordovan is relatively impervious to the blood and the burgundy color doesn't show the stains.
