Youíre right, Iíve seen more people wearing wayfarers lately.

Millennial 80's infatuation. But not in a Don Henley way, more like Rick Astley.

I wear the coat that keeps me warm, I wear the sunglasses that shield my eyes. I have worn a beard, but found it to be uncomfortable so I shaved it off. I wear a $30 Timex watch that tells time just fine. I seek neither mirrors nor approval.

In others, slovenly bothers me, as does flamboyant, but not much else does.

One man's trash is another man's treasure. Judge not.
