      I think it's funny that you assume none of these guys are gay... and that they all managed to find wives!

  2. Probably all foreign tourists, Spaniards dress more stylishly. Or so I am told.

      Mostly British. I agree about Spaniards, but one night we saw a 20-something woman dressed really badly -- sneakers with entire soles rimmed with neon lights, MUCH too-short baggy shorts in a flashy multi-color flower pattern, horizontal striped blouse in colors not found on the shorts. I said, "Well, she's obviously not Spanish." When we passed her and the group she was with, they were fluently speaking local-dialect Spanish!

  4. My partner recently read me the 'fashion police' report on men's shorts - no cargo pants and no plaids. Apparently none in Spain have read it.

    1. So no cargo pants and no plaids. What do they suggest? Daisy Dukes?

      I think it needs to be distributed to the tourists from other countries (esp. Great Britain).

      Remember, Spo lives in Phoenix. They have different fashion police.

      That's for sure. I bumped into a friend last night in a combination that was hard on the eyes. He said his mother (an artist) went ballistic when she saw him.

      Hardly an American in sight here. These guys are mostly (if not entirely) from the empire we escaped!

      And to think that "in olden days a glimpse of stocking was looked on as something shocking."

  9. Ugh! I cannot abide men in short sleeved shirts and those awful check shorts.

      No short-sleeved shirts???

    2. If a long sleeve needs to be shortened then midway between elbow and wrist I would accept and definitely not shorter. Then I would not have to see the wrinkly chicken flesh on older men.

    3. Heron:
      I never actually thought about that (although I HAVE thought about it when it comes to legs and feet).

  10. There is no shirt in existence that could redeem the shorts with the red shoes in the upper right. And is it the same pattern in the upper middle and bottom left? Not quite, I guess. I do like the colors of those shorts, though. Perfect title for the post.

      The hairstyle and color, facial hair, and sunglasses on that guy REALLY completed the picture. I didn't want to be unkind.

      Oh, trust me, it could! You should see the outfits I've been unable to snap. I DID get one last night, though, that I found more glaring than anything on this page. Just imagine what you have to look forward to!

  12. That guy in the camo shorts. I almost didn't see him...

      Oh, you and I would get along so well. That's my constant refrain when I see camo. "Ooh, I didn't even see his legs." "Wow the top of his head is invisible!" "He has no body!"

  13. I've lately heard that the age-old received wisdom of vertical stripes making one look thinner is in error. If anything, horizontals do it better. I'm yet to be convinced - and these tourists look as though they don't give a monkey's anyway.

      I don't know about horizontal or vertical, but it's clear that if you wear plaids, stripes, and colors in startling combinations, no one will notice if you're fat or thin.

  14. Very true, Mitch. A case of the body's 'adornments' hiding the actual body inside it.

  15. Great fashion shoot Mitch.
