We chatted about this on the Tuesday (7/2/24) edition of the I-95 Morning Show

Lou: Ill-fitting pants

Dave: Jordan 2's

This is also a good-look for anyone who dresses like a slob hoping it will be taken as ironic which works great for Post Malone but if you work at the Post Office in Bethel, people might not get the joke.
