    This picture made me smile. My dad wore that same hat. It is one of the few things of his I kept after he died. It still smells of his Marlboro Lights.

    lovely, but i'm in agreement about the socks/sandals combo: if it's too cold to go sockless, wear shoes. or move to seattle as this unfortunate fashion statement is all too prevalent here.

    Love the hat, the shades and the sandals. I even do not mind the socks. After all, they are not white but stay within the colour range. And at his age, he is right to keep his feet comfy and warm.
    This is a stylish man.
