Color Bind

It’s mid-late March, and if you haven’t already, you need to break out the spring gear.  Yeah, you might see one more cold spell (especially here in Tejas), but more than likely from here on it’s that progression of a few weeks of spring before the heat rolls in.

What’s a guy supposed to wear come spring?

(besides the boats with no socks)

According to color experts, Pantone (seriously… they are THE color people), you should get bright.  And fast.

Their choices:

Solar Power Yellow. Tangerine.  Grass Green.  Hawaiian Ocean (Sweet Tart Blue).  Granita (think Pomegranite).

They might be crazy.  Or they might  be right.

Earlier today The Style Blogger posted this, including pink and yellow.  Glenn O’Brien knows this isn’t a fad–but something that’s been bubbling in Vampire Weekend’s backyard for years.

Bottom-colored-line is this:  don’t let this spring awakening keep you in the charcoals of winter.  You may not rock a pair of Nantucket Reds, but don’t be afraid to brighten things up a bit.

These gems began circulating the web earlier this week, thanks in part to this post from The Eye.

With the relaunch of the classic PF’s we’ll also have a relaunch of PFFlyers.com.  More clean lines.  More authentic Americana.  More hi-tops, the way hi-tops were meant to be (I’m looking at you, Alonzo Mourning, with your Air Force High 1993’s).

More Cousy.

More kick-back.
