Khaki pants in general give the appearance of donkey butt. I wonder why that is? Is it the chino cut? The color? And the fact that most people wear them in pleats, well, that just makes the situation all the worse. That said, le garcon's bff wears them all the time, but I've been good about not referring to him as "pig butt" in a while.
I decree that all khakis worn must be constructed as flattering flat front. So it is said, so it is done.

(if only it were that easy)

The clogs of which you speak are called Crocs. I wear them almost every day to work, but in black and not some bright-as-fuck color. They are lightweight, let yr feets breathe, and I am on my feet most of the day and they're still very comfortable and provide good arch support (no small feat for my uber high arches).

So there. I wear 'em. I am debating getting a soft pink pair.

ohhhh woman, kind of large, khaki colored mom jeans that made her ass look huge, white shirt, and the kicker-white patent leather clunky heels and WHITE socks you could see cause her pants were too short. oy

missladyj - I have some that I bought years ago, before they got "way cool" and I got them through an outdoor outfitter for when I kayak and canoe. They float, so I can see 'em if they get away from me, and they are good for getting about in the water and clean up right easily..... no soggy tennis shoes and sox, YUCK! BUT, for the life of me, I can not figure out why everyone in the world is now sporting them as a fashion statement! Is the world just that full of kayaking nature buffs, or have I missed something too? I do wear mine about but I am kind of guilty of always dressing for an outdoor adventure..... I usually end up in some creek or lake or river anyway, no matter where I am.

First of all, quietmadness, your girl was a pair of oversized rhinestone sunglasses and rainbow suspenders away from Elton John's turn as the Pinball Wizard in Tommy. Truly frightening.

Second. Guachos. Let's see, let's take the widest part of the body, pull that width down to mid calf, ever widening on the way down, and stick some eensy little bird feet on the end. Oh, and just to salt the wounds, make them the most camel toe inducing, jello booty giving pants in the whole wide world. Is a damn James Bond villain behind fashion trends these days?

I know, mornington- I've seen a few women at work wearing gauchos, women of all sizes, and besides the fact that no one seems to know what tops and shoes to pair them with, they make their asses look awful. The worst was actually a woman who was quite slim, but has a bit of an ass on her...the gauchos she was wearing were made out of some kind of loose, stretchy, flouncy material and it was really obvious that she was either going commando or wearing a thong because there was nothing supporting her butt and this fabric just bounced around her butt with every step. It was ridiculous!

mm-mm, they sure sound tasty, luci

I'm seeing more and more gauchos on the streets of london. The girl wearing them wasn't large by any means, but they just made her ass look huuuuuuge. And the flat shoes? Milk-bottle ankles!
they will not learn that gauchos only ever look "good" if you're skinny as kate moss

and also my friend's gf: capri-length jeans, black trainer things... and pale blue ankle socks. I wanted to shake her and go "you're a sweetly pretty girl, you're past teenage, stop dressing like a mid-ninties thirteen-year-old".

Oh, man. I didn't see this actually on anyone, but goddess-willing I soon will. We all know that cargo pants had their day, and, in some construction/camping circles, remain necessary. However, I saw a pair of linen pants in a boutique window yesterday that I just might have to go take a picture of just so I can post it. Elastic waist, midcalf length, with huge saddlebag-like elastic-top pockets beginning mid-hip and continuing down to just about below-the-knee.

They are ghastly and I hope hope hope I see someone wearing them.

I would like to report my roommate. She's a great girl. Has some great clothing and 90% of the time is well dressed. Enviable even. She has animal print under control and wears it well. But then she goes and puts on the loose, hangy, ass feeding gauchos. Or what about her dresses that look more like nightgowns. Last night I could have sworn I walked into the Grease sleepover scene only to realize it was not Sandy at the kitchen table but my roommate just getting home from work... in a white dress with a sparse pattern of small pink flowers... I wanted to touch the thing to make sure it wasn't flannel because it was so worn it looked like flannel. Not to mention the elastic arm band and ruffles.

i have seen several women lately wearing dark (navy or brown) pants with a striped shirt tucked in and a white skinny belt. it's not a flattering look. i don't understand why it seems to be everywhere all of a sudden.

the guy in the plaid suits seems to be really confident. i mean, why else would you leave the house looking like that???

Hey, I'm with you guys. At least he's doing it *on purpose* I mean, wasn't the point of dyeing your hair crayon box colors : "Why make a fake color try to look 'natural'?"

I kinda like it...it reminds me of Malcolm McLaren and that whole 80s kind of vibe. Then I think of Adam Ant and all that fancy London stuff back then...oversized, acid-colored, loopy-knit sweaters on Johnny Rotten...and I just like it. He's dapper!

Sure I'd laugh if I saw him walking down the street, but I'd love to have dinner with him. And he knows people are laughing.

That said, some of the suit up top are SHARP, particularly on the two on the right. Sharp, indeed.

I sometimes miss men in sharp suits and good hats. Of course, there's always our dear Speedy.
