A Man's Perspective
by Andrew Alan Buhman
As the great prophet James Bard once said, "This is a Man's World, but what is man without a woman?" This is how I feel particularly in the outfits I wore on this outing. Gift found a style for me that looks amazing. We bought my outfit at Stein Mart, and let me just say that I have found a store where I actually enjoy shopping. That's right, it is possible for a man to enjoy shopping. Stein Mart reminds me of what JC Penney was like in the 1990s, when I was growing up. You come into that store, and you can actually find things that you want without feeling like you are in a giant garage sale. The atmosphere is great, and you can find clothing in your size. They also have home decorations and many other distractions, which means if I spend more than twenty minutes there, I'll probably want to buy half the store.
Despite this, my outfit was very affordable. Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville Hawaiian shirts about there, and while I don't endorse drinking, I found a shirt where the theme of alcohol was not overtly stated. I can't buy some of his shirts because there is often a theme of drinking, but with some diligent search, a good match can be found. I paired my Hawaiian shirt with a pair of white Izod kakhis. The sunglasses were also Gift's idea. She got them for me at 1sale.com. You can get remarkable deals here, getting high-end clothes, electronics, etc. for marked-down prices. There's new deals there every day.
I actually didn't buy the fedora at Stein Mart, but they have fedoras just like that one there. I bought my Mad Hatter fedora from a vendor at Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga. For a couple dollars less, you can also find fedoras almost as nice at Target. This Fedora features a black hat band that matches my belt, which I picked up at a Rite Aid. The Panama Jack sandals also go great with the outfit, matching with blue and white. I love them especially because they have a palm tree print. This is the perfect outfit for a day of relaxing at the beach. Or, if your man can't make it to the beach, he can wear this outfit and almost hear the waves along the shore!
