Contemplating the short suit

The Ludlow Suit

The Ludlow Suit

Not for the first time, I am thanking my lucky stars that I'm in radio, and that, therefore, you all can't see what I'm wearing.

Because apparently there's a new thing in mens fashion this year: A short suit. Not a suit that's cut a little bit short, but a suit in which the pants are actually shorts.

Bermuda shorts, to be sure, but still... above the knee.

J. Crew thinks people are going to pay $358 for something called "the Ludlow short suit in rope stripe Italian wool-linen."

 


For those of you who have said that yes, you would wear shorts with a suit -- and there were more than a couple of you -- it's time to put up or shut up.

Tweet us a picture @Marketplace... or it didn't happen.
