FASHION??????

OMGGGGGGGGG. . . . . no no no . Gimme my jeans, baggy shorts, sweats. . . .and yes, sandals , ,, but of course!

H&M’s new collection features skirts for men

    • Not only has H&M decided men would look good in pleated skirts come spring, they think they’re best paired with tights and a shirt with a dream catcher on it. Are there any words? Because we can’t find them.
    • This fringe jacket could work on the right girl, paired with skinny jeans or even layered shorts and tights. But on a dude? Not so much.
    • Oh lookie, our favorite harem pants. As shorts. With a tie-dye scarf. It’s like we’ve died and gone to style reject heaven.
    • We were almost willing to let the scarf slide—maybe if it were wrapped around a few times—and then we saw the sandals. Hell-to-the-no.
    • Um, this sweater isn’t complately awful. The acid wash vest, however, is perhaps better suited for a shirtless muscle man like Fabio. Or a wannabe punk who’s late to the party.
    • We’re into the idea of a man in a purple cardigan, but this guy looks like he went shopping in his younger sister’s closet.
    • A French friend once told us that French people hate orange. Just because. Well, we may not be French, but we hate this jacket, and this hat. And all the silly scarves and those darn sandals!

We know fancy designer labels like Prada are willing and able to take fashion risks, but the spring 2010 look book for mass retailer H&M has some very surprising pieces for men. Like fringe jackets, tie-dye scarves, harem pants, and, um, skirts, to name a few. Sure Marc Jacobs himself can pull off a skirt, but can you picture even the most fashionably daring men you know seeking out and wearing a skirt from H&M?

Fashion is always looking for something different. Fashion changes with the seasons and the whim of designers - and the sheep follow accordingly. But all it really does is chase its own tail.

Skirts, such as kilts, on the other hand, have stood the test of time. They're practical, there are no zippers or buttons to fiddle with, and the wearer can enjoy a cool summer breeze when things get a bit sticky.

There's really nothing new under the sun ya know, just as there's nothing new under the kilt.

I want to say that in Michigan guys don't even wear capri pants and that skirts are just not going to fly. However, there was one kid about 5 years ago in my neigborhood that proudly donned a skirt to school many of days.
Time will tell. Just not on me thanks. Can't even get my sisters to wear them anymore.

That is me and my hearse. It was my brothers wedding. The sign in the back read "Till death do we part"

I run a very respectable buisness celebrating life. Usually you won't see that car unless it's being used for it's intended purpose. But since my last name is Adams, every once in a while, you just have to have a little fun.

I've always been impressed by the formal wear adopted by some Scotsmen, with a kilt on the bottom, a peak lapel tuxedo style top and a wing collar formal shirt and bow tie. But you can forget anything but a kilt unless you're going somewhere in drag.
