Caught in a Fasion Faux-Pas IV
September 22, 2004

[ we interrupt regularly scheduled programming for a brief commercial message ]

A riddle for the masses: If three skinny guys walk down the streets of Seattle, blatantly wearing women's jeans and no one sees it, does that make it okay?

Answer: No.

The blurriness in this photo is due to my attempt to be discreet. I conceal the face of the victims for most obvious reasons. While walking to my car after work last Friday, I spotted these three fellows walking through downtown Seattle. Let's just call them "Todd, Jared, and Timmy". Imagine my chagrin when I noticed the middle character (Jared) was wearing one of my most favorite pair of Seven Jeans. "Hey those jeans look like mine," I thought to myself, "Silly Ambra, you're a girl and he's a boy, now why would a boy have on women's jeans?" But that's where I sold my crime doggery and conventional wisdom too short. In fact, not only was Jared wearing my pants, but Todd and Timmy had on women's jeans too.

Now in the past I have made quite clear, my stance on men sporting women's clothing, trying to pass for women. However, in this case, we have men wearing women's clothing, trying to pass for men. Sorry, ain't workin'.

Under. No. Circumstances. Should men wear women's jeans. They are too tight, and they are designed for people with hips and crotches. One would think this to be common sense, but apparently it is not. My camera shall continue to be on the prowl.

Again I say people....We've got to do better.
