Whatever it is they're smoking - I don't want it - Page 2

post #16 of 21
Okay, they're horrible, true, but does anyone else find an odd comfort in the fact that places like Brooks and J. Press still offer these little oddities. It's like a big "F You" to the "Bouncer in a Bulgarian Disco" look.

Last year, I bought a pair of RL khakis that had little pheasants embroided all over them (actually nicely done embroidery too). My wife rolled her eyes when I first wore them, but eventually they grew on her. Although I question whether these Brooks patch-jobbies could ever grow on anyone.

TCN, yes. I do. That's in part why I used the word perverse, to assess these pants.

Thomas, I don't blame you. They're odd trousers, but they're kind of fun.

I also take comfort in the fact the BB is offering pants that no one in their right mind would actually wear.

I like fun things, I'm kind of weird that way (So Mrs. Thomas tells me), especially around this time of year, when the temperatures drop into the low 90's and I start singing Christmas tunes in the stores.

You're not talking LL Bean style with a cat sweater to boot are you? ;-)

BB has a great pair of pin-cord trousers in sky blue with small, bright red lobsters on them. I very nearly bought them just for the humor value (a rabbi? in lobster pants? hilarious!) In an odd way, I do like the madras BB patchwork pants they offer, the true go-to-hell pants -- but cords? blech.
