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.
