The past couple of weeks have filled me with a great deal of nostalgia and reminiscing about my high school and college years. The release of Al B. Sure's first CD in 15 years and Michael Jackson's death caused some major music related emotional highs and lows.
With that mindset, I watched the end of Roger Federer and Andy Roddick's epic tennis match. I was on twitter, when someone tweeted that they were still playing, so I turned it on. I had assumed that it was long over, but they kept going and going like the Energizer bunny.
Federer eventually won, making history, but it took four hours and sixteen minutes. Now a few things came to mind while watching Federer and Roddick. They both have great legs. And Federer is so GQ that I almost can't stand it. He barely sweats and his hair is so perfect. His cut must cost thousands of dollars. I bet John Edwards dreams of having hair like his. Or maybe he thinks his hair is better. G said that he's sure that Edwards doesn't think about it at all. I'm not so sure.
Anyway, one of the things that I noticed about Roddick was what he was wearing.
Remember the little alligator from the 80's? Izod?
G said that he thinks that the label is still big in Europe, but that it just fell out of favor in the United States.
Is that true? Is everyone wearing these little alligators in Europe? I guess the preppy look is coming back. I did see some young guys on the train last year with ice cream colored Izod or Polo shirts with the collars up. Those crazy kids!
I was preppy in high school and wore those polo styled tops. But then the preppy look faded, Madonna was big on the scene and my style veered more to cut up t-shirts.
I did some quick investigating and found that Izod now appears to be a brand sold by JCPenney and has nothing to do with the alligator. The alligator appears to be the logo for Lacoste.
Not that any of this matters or is any way important to the rest of my day. By the way, these alligator photos are from flickr, courtesy of Kathy aka kthypryn's photostream.
Just curious, do you have any Lacoste clothing? Have you seen anyone wearing any? And if so, I'm curious which country you were in at the time.
