Why?

Father's Day is coming up and Casey's birthday is coming up. So...Casey is desperately in need of some new clothes. He needs new clothes for everyday, for speaking...and I would love to find something fabulous for him to wear to my reunion. So, I started browsing around the net to get some ideas...cause really, I'm clueless about what's in fashion for men.

One of my first stops...Banana Republic. I figure I'm pretty safe with them and even if I don't buy from them, they'll help me know what kind of things to look for...right?

Um...are you kidding me?! WHY?
Socks with shorts? And dress shoes? Really?
Are they really selling that as a complete outfit that you should buy?
He looks ridiculous!

But look! There's more!
This one is even better! You're actually saving money by buying this outfit, because you are dressed for every occasion at all times!
Shirt and tie, dress shoes and socks for work.
Shorts for hanging out with the guys or sailing.
And cardigan for reading quietly at home.
I am really considering this for Casey to wear to the reunion. The invitation says "casual," but you know people are going to dress up. So...with this, Casey will be set no matter what!

WHY?????

Wow! I'd definitely be a trophy husband in that outfit!

I look HOT in short white shorts. I think my pale legs would match the shorts color!

You said it honey! Ridiculous! I have yet to figure out men's fashion. Jason seems to wear the same Old Navy polo's year after year:).

But this- HORRID! They look like confused 'Sound of Music' characters. Not cool!

If you bought that ensemble for Casey and he wore it, I would call trusted friends who are prayer ministers and we would be in Brenham asap! No wonder my husband shops at Academy and western wear stores unless he needs a suit.

Okay maybe not for Casey, but I think Reed could pull it off, don't you? ;-)

Cynthia said...

Hideous! Absolutely hideous! Are you sure Casey wouldn't like some capris? I thought I remember him commenting very highly on Phil's...

Casey Cease said...

Erin -

Reed could pull it off... ONLY if he was wearing his large Boy Scout™ socks.

I would pay money to see Casey in a pair of shorts like that! Especially the cardigan outfit. Priceless!

Steph, there is an item gaining popularity called a murse...man purse, maybe Casey would like a murse as well for his b-day.

oh my goodness. i'm sitting in my office belly laughing and showing your blog off to my co workers. how ridiculous!

Morgan said...

the question that came to me wasn't about the socks with shorts, but the shorty shorts!! they are hilarious!! a little too much leg for me.

Abbie said...

Oh no. OH NO!! That is the most horrible thing I have ever seen! No Casey!! DON'T DO IT!! hahhahaha

Catherine Haskew said...

I have no words...you have stumbled upon a fashion gem!!! Please buy this stuff for Casey, he will be the coolest guy at the reunion...although people may question if you marriage is just for show :). I hope you know I am kidding and agree with all the above comments. I am all for trendy but that is fashio at it's worst!

Phil said...

I just don't get it. I mean, was one of the BR designers in the middle of changing his dress pants one night before a nice evening on the town and look in the mirror and go "hmmm, now that's a great look!"? That's what it looks like to me.

monique said...

please oh please let's have Casey wear that!!!!!! All in favor...yea! All opposed (silence). I think it would really show off his leg hair. Chicks dig leg hair ;)
