And now a few things from the men’s side that hurt my brain.
The blazer with hoodie attached – A while back the hoodie faction and the blazer faction got together and started wearing both at the same time. And then someone had a brainstorm and wondered, what if we took this already questionable look and fused it together as a single garment? That would remove the functionality of both! And then people would no longer have to choose which blazer went with which hoodie! Shortly after making it, the creator’s head collapsed from emptiness.
Geox – I am wary to tar an entire company with the same brush. I understand a lot of people wear these shoes (stores have been popping up all over Vancouver). It sold 21 million shoes worldwide in 2007. So clearly someone likes them. But I have to ask those people this – you do know they’re really ugly, right? I mean…you know that and don’t care, like the Crocs people…right?
Wearing dress shirts untucked – Hey there, untucked shirt guy. I like to wear my shirts untucked too. It’s liberating and nicely casual on a warm spring day. But do you see how the back of your shirt is so much longer than the front? That’s because it’s a dress shirt and is made to stay tucked in when you lean over. Another clue is that your shirt completely covers your ass.
The sleeveless t-shirt – Wow, it sure can get hot during the summer, can’t it? I don’t mean while you’re playing sports. I mean just when you’re standing around, or walking around town, or eating in a restaurant and putting your hands behind your head. It gets so hot that you start to thinking, if only I could cut the sleeves off my t-shirt I’d be so much more comfortable. What a great idea! Just cut those sleeves off and expose that extra 3 inches of flesh to the cooling, cooling sun. Oh man, that is so much better. The only drawback is looking like a complete berk. (Some people call this a muscle shirt. It isn’t. It’s a t-shirt with the sleeves cut off.)
