Men: Don’t Wear White After Labor Day

The day after Labor Day is known by many as Terrible Tuesday. By that time, all of the schools are back in, and the majority of people are back from their vacations. It just sort of hits all at once.

Republican Senator Larry Craig’s recent bad men’s room etiquette has given people watching a bad name (be sure to scroll down to view the video at the bottom of the link).

It was Terrible Traffic Tuesday. And with everyone back from their pleasant summer holidays the Metro was packed –standing room only. I looked up from my prime seat to spy a business man dressed in a freshly pressed dress shirt and tie with nice black slacks. He looked like most men on their way to work this unofficial first day of Fall.

But as I worked my way down to the floor suddenly I was surprised to see this man had topped off his morning attire with white flip flops!

Doesn’t he know you’re not supposed to wear white after Labor Day?

    My 5 year old started Kindergarten yesterday and I actually agonized over whether or not to put him on a white shirt. Silliness indeed, but I guess that’s parenthood.

    I’m pretty sure men should just never wear white rubber flip flops. Period.
    Especially if they have hobbit feet.

    This Larry Craig has really dirty shoes…
