Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse for the select, attention craving individuals who try way too hard to be hip and trendy with their fashion prerogatives, it did. For me, this moment was when Kanye West jumped on stage in a leather kilt for the first time. I regret to inform you that things may be far worse than we could have ever imagined.
You see, two idiots who likely enjoy spending time with their bros (all three of them) stoned and listening to “Dark Side of The Moon” while pounding PBRs 52 Saturdays out of the year thought it was a good idea to invent “meggings.” Man Leggings.
There are not many people for whom I reserve the “if we were walking down the street toward each other, I would punch you in the face, unprovoked” title, but I’d gladly award it to the two British designers who thought this was a good idea. They’re probably the same kind of guys who poked holes in their friends’ condoms in college as a funny prank, because they thought that was a good idea, too.
According to Elite Daily, the company sTitch was founded by Luke Shipley and Tom Hunt after they were “forced” to wear female leggings to some kind of themed party. The pants that no man should ever wear are priced at 25 Euros, and were inspired by Russell Brand and Justin Bieber. I hate both of them.
According to the sTitch website, the pants are supposed to represent some kind of liberation type thing for men, even though we’re already perfectly free to wear a comfortable pair of Levi’s to the bar, and it’s been that way for years.
“We envision a day where men can wear what they want as opposed to what they should, to achieve this, we will strive to design and produce garments that liberate the modern man from conventional male fashion.”
Yeah, that day came and went already. It was somewhere in between when the zoot suit went out of style and Nike started manufacturing some of the most comfortable loungewear in the history of mankind.
Listen up while I tell you something. The only time a man should don tights like these is if he’s sacrificed the blood, sweat, and tears to qualify for the Olympics to represent his country, and his sport calls for attire of the kind. Aside from that, there is not one good reason to ever see any guy walking around in these. Warning: if you do, you’re fair game for that whole “punch in the face” schtick I alluded to above.
Take a look in the mirror right now, Luke and Tom. If you’re wearing your product, you look like idiots.
