Pants: a Man-fiesta!

I'm going to (charitably) suggest that my husband dress like this.

Can't tell you how much fun I had reading the comments on Simcha Fisher's Pants: a Manifesto.

Specify the guy on the right, the others not so much.

Young Mom said...

I don't know, I kind of like the one all the way on the left. The guy on the right is wearing a denim shirt and pants. Weird.

Darwin said...

Hmmm. But the guy on the left has his shirt unbuttoned as far as his blazer which is a little... special.

Plus the three on the left have jeans that are both slightly short and slightly tapered in the leg. I have to go with the guy on the right for fit of jeans, though I join you in questioning the denim shirt with them. I'd want to see them an inch longer and sitting lower at the hips, but one has to make allowances... :-P

[verification word is "breste"]

I'd say something about this, but I'm laughing too hard at the old guy with the hair and the sunglasses. A man-fiesta, indeed.

BettyDuffy said...

Yeah, I'm going to go with the button fly, I believe.

I'm glad, Mrs. D, that you made note of the finer points on the old dude. He's easy to overlook amid all those bare chests.

mrsdarwin said...

Also, I will never stop laughing at "man-fiesta".

Otepoti said...

Ah ha! NOW I get it.

"Man-fiesta" is a cryptic clue.

It's an anagram of

"Mafia nest".

Which is clearly what those guys are, if they're not auditioning for Francis Ford Coppola.

Where's my prize?

BettyDuffy said...

Way to go Otepoti! You win all the money in these guys' pockets!

Marie said...

My husband has the holes in his clothes, does that count? And a lot of times he doesn't shave. . . .

Otepoti said...

Ooo-er. No thanks, I'd rather not frisk those guys for spare change. I might find their guns.

I'm certain they're not glad to see me.

Otepoti said...

Did I go too far with that last? Did I? Did I?

I'm just trying to earn you one of those cool Simcha Fan "This blog brings shame on the Catholic Church" comments, so you can retort, no, Otepoti's Protestant, so THIS blog brings shame on the WHOLE OF CHRISTENDOM.

You'll thank me.

mrsdarwin said...

Otepoti, you went too far: I almost woke up my sleeping baby by laughing.

eaucoin said...

It's good that the old guy had the sense to wear a buttoned up shirt or we might be seeing cleavage. If I were his girlfriend I would tell him to stay away from the "double-breasted" jackets because they are unfortunately suggestive on him.

BettyDuffy said...

Otepoti, One of them does sort of look glad to see...someone.

Otepoti said...

I didn't say that, but I thought it.

So we should both go and sit on the Naughty Step.

For a minute I thought that not only had you posted an unfortunately photo of me on someone else's blog, but that now you had posted a picture of my husband's cousins on your own blog.
