Mom jeans? They never hang around long because they're pretty much universally unflattering.

Kilts just don't do it for me. Not that that should stop anyone.

I don't get drop crotch trousers either, I just imagine it being very unpractical to move around in.

I've considers leggings as a man before... until I saw someone else wearing them once at a concert and they were the most irritating hipster creature to be around ever, and that put me off.

Yeah, it's not that I necessarily have a wholesale objection to leggings on men-- it's just that the rest of the styling I usually see makes them look like pretentious, forgive me for saying so, Eurotrash. Leggings are effing comfortable and convenient, I wouldn't want to deny anyone that because of biology.

Then again, men tend to rely more on pockets than women do, so it necessitates the additional purchase and use of a bag to hold your wallet and other crap in, etc, so it might not be as convenient for guys.

Agreed. Though I do like those sequined black leggings...

I went to a party recently dressed as, you're gonna love/hate me for this, Alice Glass. And I have to say, lack of pockets in women's clothes annoys me. Though men's jackets seem to have a lot more pockets too so that probably makes up for it, especially blazers and army jackets.

A cosplayer I know once told me that if you can't be with your crush, you might as well be them. (A playful reference to her cosplaying men)

You've learned the lesson well.

Fight you for those leggings.

I can say, without any trace of irony, that it would be genuinely delightful to see you dressed as Alice Glass.

Here's a popular opinion: fake pockets on clothes are the Devil's work.

I feel neither love nor hate. I have moved to a place beyond time, beyond space, beyond feelings, rationale, nirvana. I think you broke me, Ryan.

Totally feel you on the pockets issue though.

XD until bitchy-as-fuck vice principal went on her daily NO INDIVIDUALITY ALLOWED, TAKE EVERYTHING OFF rampage (seriously, she'd yell at you for having a single freaking button undone, or being IN THE MIDDLE OF GOING TO YOUR LOCKER to change your shoes in the middle of winter).
I remember a teacher like that in 7th grade- she was NUTS about the "no hats" rule, one day she bitched me out in the hallway, about 2 minutes after I came in from outdoors, on a cold as balls winter day. Seriously, I wasn't even to my locker yet to take it off and put it there, and she's already bitching. I'm so glad I'm not in school anymore, I hated all those stupid rules.

I think making leggings look good has less to do with what sex (or gender) you are and more to do with your physical build and how you wear them. They generally look good on women of any size because we have curvier legs, and the skin-hugging effect is flattering to our shape. I see a lot of ballet and opera performers where I work, and the tights that male dancers wear are actually very flattering and do a fantastic job showing off their muscle. Seriously, whichever doofus insisted that all male superheroes should look like Hulk Hogan and all female superheroes like Pamela Anderson has obvious never looked at professional ballet dancers.

What I do wish people would remember is that for day to day streetwear, LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS. Unless they are made from a thicker material like woven acrylic or wool and therefore totally opaque, people should not wear them as pants. Especially if they don't have shapewear on underneath or don't do squats often. Just put some shorts or a skirt or a long tunic-like shirt on, people.

Honestly, between girls who don't know how to wear leggings and guys who wear their jeans low so their butts are hanging out, the aesthetic appeal of butts has come close to being totally ruined for me.

Re:Fashion. This should be good from someone who owns no less than 2 Marvel polos.

1) Mennings- If you can rock them, good for you. I would not make anyone endure me wearing them though. Also at 6'4", I imagine Chris-sized mennings would be a pain to buy.

2) Fake pockets can burn in real hell.

3) Suspenders- As someone who's seen WAY too many Suspenders as of late, let me says this-There are people who can people who can pull them off, but most of the time those who can't are the ones wearing them.

I beg to differ. Mom jeans are way more flattering on me than any other style. No one needs to see middle-aged muffin top. Seriously. I wear my mom jeans with pride and give zero fucks about whether or not they are stylish.

It's weird because what you call suspenders we call braces, for us suspenders are more like stocking/lingerie type things.

I own a pair of braces but to be fair I very rarely wear them precisely because they are so hard to pull off with out looking like a hipster knob end or skinhead.

But of course the best thing you can do with braces is prefix conversations by saying "Now I'm not a fancy big city lawyer"

I was once of the belief that leggings should never be worn as pants. Then I got pregnant, and I did not want anything on my body that was unstretchy and lacking an elastic waist.

I'm also fat, and would like to see people get over fat bodies, Jesus, they're not that big a deal.

Penny says such pretty words.


I have evolved beyond your silly notions of fashion. I am all knowing. All seeing. I am no longer a mere mortal. Your leggings do not concern me, mortals.
