Is it just me, or have the last two or three years seen the gradual rise to near ubiquity of articles of clothing featuring big teal & maroon stripes? I was out with some folk at a local bar last weekend, and noted that one friend was wearing a scarf with that color scheme, which matched the shirt another girl in the place was wearing. My friend noted that the scarf actually matched another shirt her boyfriend owned. At which point I realized that I actually own two shirts like that myself. (Here’s one.) Who makes these decisions? And what is their nefarious agenda?
ADDENDUM: Holy crap, someone really did pick ’em.
