Would you wear these? Or would they get a couple spins and then slowly disappear into the dark recesses of the inner closet?

No.

I don't understand the appeal of spectators, they always come off as very costumey to me

Not even for standing on the porch of the Lido Hotel?

They're kinda cool, but I think you have hit on it:

1. Taken for a couple of spins
2. Gradually pushed into the back of the closet
3. Pulled out again a couple of years later; "these are kinda cool, why don't I ever wear them?"
4. Taken for another spin and realized that you don't really like them
5. Goodwill

They might get used on Derby Day and that's it. They're not ugly, just a little too eccentric.

This guy loves them:

It makes no sense, and they are not related in any way, but they remind me of these:

A quick glance at the JC Penney website makes me believe the ownership is trying to go out of business as fast as possible for tax reasons.
