Went to Old Navy the other day, as I needed some new pants, and picked up a pair of these in “Blue Heron.” When I tried them on this morning, my wife said “let me see those,” which made me feel pretty dashing…
…until she said “My grandfather had a pair of pants almost EXACTLY that color.”
Come to think of it, so did mine.
I’m keenly aware that fashion travels in orbits, and that styles that are out one year (or decade) are in again the next (give or take 20 years).
But still. This makes me feel old.
Though that doesn’t mean I’m not going to wear the pants…
