Recessions bring up so many questions: Where's the line between effective and overregulation? How much money can you actually stuff under a mattress? If you subbed in Tim Geithner for Bradley Whitford on old West Wing episodes, would anyone even notice? And, of course, How are you supposed to dress for a downturn? Answering that last one, Kenneth Cole. With casual boldness, Kenneth Cole's Summer Line manages to express both "I am the captain of my own economic destiny", and "I fully expect a powerful stranger with majestic silver hair to approach me on the street and say 'I like your style. How would you like to start a business with me?'". The brand-new starts with a trim-cut 4-pocket cargo jacket with epaulets, a lightweight v-neck sweater in meridian blue, Moon Mission high top leather sneakers, and a pair of belted cargo shorts crisp enough to gain entrance to places that typically kick shorts to the curb, where they angrily watch as pants that aren't even that cool saunter right through the door. Round things out with a stainless steel case watch w/ black dial, multifunction display, and black polyurethane strap, a handsome-as-hell sand leather messenger bag, and Palladium Aviator sunglasses -- because as awesome as you are, you're always flying close to the sun. And listening to Kenny Loggins.
Show up bearing the promo code R1929 at the Kenneth Cole Century City store between now and the 9th, and with a purchase of $100 or more they'll throw in a sweet pair of flip-flops -- posing another question: Just because times are tough, why should my toes have to suffer?
