For me, this outfit is tres Americaine. I mean, where else can you reference the Old West wearing little more than a pair of hot pink short shorts, a bolo tie, fake turquoise jewelry, and ankle cowboy booties? I was feeling a bit Spaghetti Western meets Trailer Park. And a boat-load of attitude can pull off wearing a pair of shorts this bright and short on a pair of stout forty-plus year old stems. I'm telling you, only in America, folks, only in America. The thing I love about the mythos of Americana is its crooning love song to rugged individuality and iconoclasm that rides us off into the sunset. Which by the way often contains the color of these pants.

'A crooning love song to rugged individuality' indeed - and there's a great melody to this look. You know, every time you make a passing reference to your age I do a double take. You're an inspirational flower: rare and blooming beautiful!
