if you all will indulge me for a moment.

i must confess that i have a defiant streak in me.

this outfit.

like most of my outfits.

are reactions to people setting rules.

i enjoy breaking them.

when someone says i cant do something, especially if its deemed uncool.

ill do it.

with bravado.

with gusto.

with panache.

with the biggest damn grin on my face.

im aware this is not the most admirable personality trait.

and it has gotten me into sticky situations before.

but people dont change.

or more specifically.

IM A STUBBORN SON OF A GUN.

ahem.

two supposed “rules” brought me to this outfit.

  1. "Don’t pop your collar on a jacket, especially on a double breasted one."
  2. "You ought not to wear jeans with double monk strap shoes."

i thought to myself.

well, the game is afoot.

i rummaged through my closet and strung together this outfit in a frantic manner.

I MUST DEFY.

I MUST STAND OUT.

i don’t think this outfit is going to start any style revolutions.

but when you challenge your notions of what is aesthetically pleasing.

you might surprise yourself with what works.

and what bombs.

remember: you can’t win the superbowl every year.

one of these days, when i am much older.

i will be sitting on my porch.

drinking an iced tea.

the sun warming my bare ankles.

my rocking chair creaking in time.

the pond will lap the pebbled shore in the background.

the row boat will bump against the dock every so often.

i’ll be content telling stories to my grandchildren.

stories about the golden age of WIWT’s.

a simpler time.

a quieter time.

maybe then, this rebellious fire will subside.

but in the meantime…

IMMA POP DAT COLLAR.
