"The finest food and pants blog on the web."

Good God

I generally get hundreds of e-mails each day from readers. Some of these e-mails ask for fashion or food advice, others say how awesome this blog is, and others give anonymous tips. This morning I received an e-mail from a certain Joe Dude directing me to an article in the New York Times.

The article is about a certain Thom Browne, a designer who is responsible for the following (as a word of caution, please make sure you are sitting down for this, and if your stomach is not very strong, you may not want to view this at all):


This is simply one of the most awful things my eyes have ever seen. Short-sleeves for a suit jacket? No. The pants? Ridiculously high up and with a cuff? No.

No no no.

What is disturbing is that this designer has won accolades in the fashion community. Well, the fashion community has lost its mind.

I suppose all I can say is that I feel if anyone can pull it off, it's a person in my office who happens to be the most senior member on the staff. I think 'W' would look pretty good in this outfit.
