The first thing my wife’s family said when they saw my outfit was “PACHUCO!” Not quite the look I was going for since the hat wasn’t a wide brim and I don’t wear zoot suits, but I ran with it in terms of the title. Actually, I don’t know what look I was going for. A little retro, a little laid back California, and a little skater. The wife suggested “skater chic,” but for some reason I am loathe to use the word chic when referring to myself. Go figure. Popovers just seem more casual and the palm trees are indicative of Southern Cali, so you get the idea I was going for.
Yes, I realize my Sk8-His are a little dirty, but that’s how I prefer to rock my Vans. Adds a little bit of character. That, and cleaning dirt off of vulcanized soles gets tedious.
