Well, it's nearly six months later and I finally decided to go for it. Mostly it was because finally I have the money and they were on sale. I'm going to a conference in early June and a wedding three weeks later and I'll wear them with my tan/white stripe seersucker suit and Panama hat. Shirt and bow tie to be determined -- my wife is angling for a loud floral design, but I think it will clash with the stripes. I'll also wear them with jeans and chinos. I'll have to just play around with my wardrobe to see what looks good.
