The Shorts and Suit Jacket Combo

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

If you live anywhere close to a beach you know it’s getting to be that time of year again.  Yes, swim suits and shorts will be dominating style choices as so many of us rush off to make sand castles, work on our tans, and once again try to figure out how to use a boogie board. (Sans the tanning for me, I’m a SPF 50 million kind of guy) Break out your cute floppy hats and brightly colored beach towels Beautiful Thinkers and hit the water now that it’s not so cold you feel like you’re going to reenact Leonardo DiCaprio’s death scene from Titanic.

Being a Florida boy born and raised I’m no stranger to the beach, but since I live in Orlando now I’m finding it a little harder to get to with it being about a 45 minute drive either direction before you hit water.  That might not seem like a big deal to some of you, but when you’re from SoFlo where the beach is basically right outside your back door 45 minutes can feel like a Lord of the Rings journey.  Thankfully I just spent the weekend back south where I got inspired for the rant I’m about to go on. (Incoming shift in tone.)

shorts-for-men-with-blue-blazer-2013More and more I’m seeing the style of shorts and a suit jacket together.  I’m not sure who thought this particular combo was a good idea for Men’s Fashion but I have the desire to torture them both physically and mentally.  Seriously, don’t point this person out to me because I’ll probably find a way to go full on Hulk and fling them around like Loki in The Avengers.  Every instance of this outfit combo has made me think that the person wearing it has a desperate need to revert back to a time when they went to a private all boys’ boarding school.
