That's So 60s!!

And what is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the 60s????

Every Girl Goes Crazy....

For a Sharp Dressed Man....
And what can be sharper than matching white tie, patent leather shoes, and kerchief!!  Kathy certainly seems mesmerized.

Or on second thought maybe she's in shock that a guy would actually wear that out in public.  Either way, she had to pause to look so maybe it worked!!
