    http://www.slate.com/id/2121380/ What is it about summer that occasions the shameless abandonment of propriety and taste? The "tube top," the plastic "jelly" shoe, and the "Daisy Duke" jean short all owe their existence to our seasonal lack of discrimination.

    I don't know who Amanda Fortini is but I glad to hear that I'm not alone in thinking all of this. I remember her essay on low-rise pants from when it originally appeared and agreed completely with her back then as well.
