Skirt-like abominations

Post by Coder »

Someone, somewhere is wearing these, because this company is making them.

Or am I wrong - was there a glitch in the Matrix, and someone let an AI design clothing for a change? Do I just not get out enough?

(I realize the seller is a purveyor of cheap imported goods)

Looks awful! I couldn't wear that lot on a breezy day in case a gust of wind makes me take off like a kite! :mrgreen:

All I can say is that if these become acceptable, who could complain about a guy wearing a skirt?!

The name harem pants seems a little paradoxical. As far as I know harems were the exclusive preserve of females.

They carry the coveted title "pants", which makes them safe for the reputations of men who have to constantly reassure themselves of their manliness, the ridiculousness of the outfits do not matter.

It's not a skirt, and that's all that matters.... because "skirts are for girls".

I feel like the rabbit from that cereal commercial whenever I think of that phrase.

I think that moon shadow is probably right. The trousers-under-skirt look seems to be a crutch.

When I see those strange constructions, my first thought is how many cleaning rags can I make of that.

I remember MC Hammer wearing something like that some time last century :shock:

I will add them to my list of things I don't understand. I would like to hear the designer's rationale ...... or more likely post rationalisation.

I reckon the designer is probably trying to start a trend, fair play to them for trying to find something that isn't pants and isn't a skirt. They do look bloody silly though!

They bring this clip to mind, Billy Connolly at his best: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGNMeR-BOis

Looked at all three Web sites. In the second one the model looks like he's trying to imitate a penguin.

Numbers 2 and 3 look like they would be handy if you crapped your pants. Another use would be for diving off of a cliff. They would make a good flying suit.

Not to be so sarcastic and trying to understand what someone else thinks would be cool fashion, the designer did his best, "bless his heart."

I like skirts because of unlimited stride, ventilation, freedom, and comfort. These don't seem to fit any of those categories. Go back to GO do not collect $200. Try again.
