- Crampons. Leave one strap undone, just like Gianni Agnelli would have, had he worn fashion-oriented mountaineering gear.
- Swords. Sabres, foils, epees, scimitars, who gives a shit? Swords!
- Underpants. But they’re orange and you wear them over your pants.
- Hobo Hats.The kind where the top is flipping up like the lid of a can of beans.
- AquaSox. But you wear them as earrings. (These should be orange.)
- Ice Cream Tie. Neopolitan.
- Cigarette Holders. Super-long ones. Like Cruella De Ville.
- Dalmatian-Fur Jackets. Also like Cruella De Ville.
- Tiaras. Because this is your day.
- Pocket squares. But they’re made out of cocaine. Also, they’re orange.
