Something tells me he happened to be wearing the same outfit he got married in.

    I would comment on the Ms.' attire, but it occurs to me that sometimes discretion is the better part of valor.
    Years ago, I worked with a very nice admin asst whose husband was a complete a$$hole. One of our co-workers got married, and yep, the admin brought her hubby, and yep, he wore CAMO to the wedding. To build on the fashion faux pas, he insisted they bring their two little girls to the wedding, even though kids were not invited.

    Having worked for decades in central FL, I can't tell you how many times men showed up to speak at hearings, wearing shorts, polo or t-shirt, and carrying a briefcase. I'm not talking about engineers or applicants, but the neighbors supporting or protesting a development. That's such a bizarre look.

    The fashion trend at my daughter's school is to wear socks that don't match.

    Meggings?

    Not for me but I bet ursus would look great and make a strong fashion statement.

    I think that one of the great signs of security is the ability to just walk away.

    I'm guessing that the codpiece suppliers are anxious for this one to catch on. What do you know? Googled the interweb and here's an article from just last year.
