    I'm pretty sure I've got a pic of you in a flat-brim on the river somewhere :)

    Actually, he never said there was anything wrong with it. Maybe he's into younger men. Start wearing your hat backwards and find out ;)

    I watch the styles that "younger" folks wear today with a good bit of humor. The same humor as when I see old photos of me in bell bottom jeans and tie-dyed shirts. Any extreme or flashy style gets the same reaction from most folks. The style never lasts long and soon a new one takes its place. It's more about ones attitude. Does wearing said fashion make them think they're cool? If it takes a style to make the person who they want to be instead of being who they are, it's all bullshit and it's obvious to everyone they're a poser.

    To digress slightly I laugh hysterically when I see these kids with their pants down past their ass. If they only knew where the style originated they might pull up their pants. Then again, they might not. It began in prisons as a form of discreet communication that one was ready to be someone's bitch and take it in the ....you get the picture. So if you come fishing with me with your pants down, go home...fast, and don't come back.

    Do waders with the crotch at the knees complete the ensemble?

    Fishing is suppose to be fun, no matter how you fish or what you wear. If you have a problem, stay home!

    I don't know what's wrong with puffy jackets. I can make any jacket look puffy.

    I have to say the Patagonia Nano Micro Puff Jacket is the best thing to come along since the Thingamabobber.

    Not sure
    Every since my kids were little, it's cracked me up to see junior high school-aged boys wearing long baggy shorts and a t-shirt waiting for the bus in the morning or on their way home in the afternoon. Doesn't matter whether it's dumping snow, raining or 85 and sunny - they're wearing baggy shorts and a t-shirt.

    When my youngest was in junior high and had put up with my mini-rants about shorts and t-shirts for a few years too many, one day she said, "What do you care? You don't have to wear them. They're not your kids." And of course she was right, so I never brought it up again.

    Then what shows up in the Wall Street Journal a couple weeks ago, but a light-hearted article about teenage boys wearing shorts year 'round, even in the arctic-style winters in NY and Boston. Turns out according to their parents, wearing shorts 365 has become a sort of badge of courage and rite of passage among many middle class white teenage boys.

    Go f__king figure. Just makes me glad I had girls instead of some bonehead who wears shorts in the snow! Let alone a puffy coat and a flat hat.

    I've noticed this too. I see so many guys, from adolescent age on up, with not particularly cheap clothing, obviously trying to look cool, and not wearing a coat or anything else that could be considered warm when it's cold.

    I think you better grow some thicker skin. If you think my cussing is bad you better read some more of what every body else writes. Sucking dicks is mild.
