Department store selling asymmetrical jeans for $462



Department store Neiman Marcus is helping people with their indecisiveness by selling asymmetrical jeans.

I'm getting a bad feeling about these...

The first shot in the fashion war against skinny jeans has been fired, and it ain't pretty.

Looks good for someone with a broken leg with a cast on it.

I don't think that would have been cool even when I was young and foolish. Probably sell like hotcakes.

Still, it shouldn't be too hard to take down a style that only looks right on the truly emaciated. The first time I saw a guy who was exceptionally fit and well-built wearing skinny jeans and how bad they looked on him (like his legs had been sharpened and then bent at the ends), I knew that fad wouldn't last very long.

Exactly! I can't believe how out of proportion they look. I think bell bottoms look better.

I had me a pair of bell bottom jeans. I thought I looked pretty cool back then.

Tripping over them and falling made me look less cool....

Bell bottoms definitely accentuate through counterbalance a thicker shape. Those with skinny legs and little or no butt look best to my eye in boot cut. But for general one-style-for-all simplicity, it's hard to beat original straight leg.

I think the most I've ever paid for a pair of jeans is maybe $50, probably less.

It kills me to see a handsome man or well put together woman wear completely goofy trendy clothing. The latest with women is that super wide legged cropped pants. Belongs on a clown.

I haven't seen that particular look yet. I'm imagining something along the lines of pleated slacks that are a few inches too short, is that somewhere in the ball park? Either that, or the butt-ugly and usually too large shorts that mail carriers wear.

Riiiight.

Better by stock now before the fad gets old.

Which it already is.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men
except by believing all possible evil
of evil men.

Gotcha. The first two examples aren't too bad except that they're several inches too short. Back when I was a young whippersnapper we called that "Being in the floods" or "Wearing floods", and we even had a rhyme for it-

The Flood is gone, the land is dry
Why do you wear your pants so high?


In the last example, not only are the pants an inch or so too long but they're in a pattern more suitable for the uncomfortable antique chairs of a British grandmother's parlor than for an article of clothing.

The second example displays a pet peeve of mine- French manicures on toenails.

First off I think French Manicures in general are one of the biggest scams ever invented because if you get one then you've paid someone good money to paint your nails the exact same way they'd look if they weren't painted at all.

Secondly, French Manicures on toenails make the individual toes and toenails look much bigger than they are, giving many women an unintentional Fred Flintstone look.

Ladies, is this really how you want your feet to look?
