Redundant

Here's the third wearing of these shorts (see the first two here and here), and the next on my list of ideas for ways to wear them. I've still got one more idea I'm wanting to try, and that's pairing them with suspenders and oxfords (which I still have yet to get stretched to the correct width). You'll see that one soon enough, I'm sure. I don't know what the hell I'm going to do once I've run through all these ideas. Actually that's not entirely true; I still have other ideas for these shorts, but the other items involved in those outfits are too wintry even for this very chilly SF summer.

The goal with this outfit was to wear my polka dot tie. When I put this together I fretted that I've already worn this shirt and tie together several times before, but upon perusing the archives I realized that the tie has most often appeared paired with my Max Studio black V-neck top, and has in fact only been worn with this striped shirt one other time. Whew! I thought my outfits were starting to get redundant.

Shirt: Promod
Tie: thrifted
Shorts: White House Black Market

I really like that shirt...the print, the shape, and the pockets! The whole outfit is a winner in my book.

I love this menswear-inspired look on you, Audi! Those shorts look great.

Puh-leese. Your outfits could never get redundant.

Someday you'll have to give a lesson on chic androgynous looks, Audi. If I wore this, I'd look like the biggest poseur ever born!

I wish I rocked a tie half as well as you do, Audi! You look awesome, and not at all redundant!

Wow, I love this. Wonder if I should add a tie to today's outfit. Hmmm.

I am an nerd and you look really good on those clothes. You are really good at this Nerd Fashion. I wish my girlfriend wore that.
