Unless it’s a Bruce Springsteen concert or the 4th of July, an outfit composed of red, white, and blue is usually a “no no” for me. Kind of like wearing red and green around the holidays – another “no no.” There’s spirit and then there’s spirit and the line between the two is very slender - you’re either the obnoxious person who shows up at a holiday party dressed like a Christmas tree or the meany who refuses to wear any sort of patriotic color combo on July 4th. Come on, not even a blue stripe on your sweater? A star? What gives!?
I received this pair of A|X Armani Exchange pants a couple of weeks ago and admit the whole red pants thing is still a bit of a challenge for me. I either go monochromatic or end up looking like I have more American pride than Uncle Sam. But last week I decided to give in to my nationality and hold up my American passport for all the world to see – not really – though as you can see I did go patriotic from head-to-pointy toe. Sometimes you just gotta embrace a look with a big ol’ bear hug and say to hell with what everyone else thinks (or what my mirror is telling me).
Like my pants? Want some of your own so you can give Uncle Sam a run for his George Washington dollar bills? Then check this out and meet me there!
