Boomer Guys Have Stuck Fashion Gold

I read it in the New York Times. Plaids and plaids and stripes and checkers are the hot fashion.

One day last week, Mr. Romano was wearing six different patterns: a brown-and-cream houndstooth suit from Paul Stuart, a Truzzi dress shirt in blue and white stripes of varying hues, a Paul Stuart salmon pink tie with a blue paisley pattern, a Charvet gold-and-cream pocket square, suspenders in a chinoiserie pattern of blue, orange and yellow, and color-block socks.

Now picture the guy on the right 150 pounds heavier.

I can’t wait to wear my new outfit to Le Golfing Club. I will be so sheik chic laffed at.

Hat tip to Jay.
