I'll admit that there's something sexy about a woman wearing a man's shirt. That's an iconic image that tells a risque story and has worked for Marilyn Monroe and countless other women. But apparently Levi's now thinks that the tables can be turned, and that guys look hot wearing lady pants.
Ummm. No. What would that backstory be?
Here's the sales pitch from the Levi's website: "Remember the girlfriend with the great style? Here's a tribute to her -- a fit that's super-snug allover, an update of the five-pocket classic that's as skinny as it gets. Made with plenty of stretch."
Yes, I know there are many guys already wearing skinny pants like this. A select few are lead singers in rock bands, where bending gender rules might add to their credibility. The rest are just misguided -- and being taken at $70 a pop. Do they not know that they have been wearing lady pants all along? At least we can now thank Levi's for the confirmation that this style most rightfully belongs to your ex-girlfriend. Guys, if you have a pair, it's time to give them back.
Yeah, I checked anyway, and they don't even come in my size. Maximum inseam = 32 inches. Tall dudes need not apply. Levi's is still my brand of choice, but I only pay thirty bucks at Sears for a hell of a lot more fabric than this. These days it's a straighter cut than the baggy ones I wore in the 90s, but still nowhere near "super snug."
Someone get the smelling salts for GG, I just mentioned clothes shopping at Sears.
P.S. Miller Lite's "Man Up" campaign, which features hot female bartenders publicly emasculating male patrons for any effeminate fashion choices (skinny jeans, man purses, etc.) is included on our GayAds/StraightAds Tumblr. I think that approach is a little harsh, just for the record.
