Check out Mr. Fancy Pants

These two dapper gents were queued in front of me at the theater the other night.


How do you like them slacks?

I wish I had the guts to dress like that but I’m too repressed. I have a deep-seeded fear of drawing attention to myself and having people take clandestine photos of me and then posting them to a blog.

Do they have the nerve to dress like this where you live?

  1. partridge family pants! from my elementary school years…i tend to admire people who can do this, but am firmly in the ‘don’t call attention to my ass’ camp…

  2. I was at a gig the other night where a guy was wearing remarkably similar pants to those pictured, but they were skintight and made of some sort of spandex material.And I’m pretty sure he wasn’t wearing underwear.I’m yet to recover.

  3. My, they are a couple of dandies, aren’t they! They don’t dress like that here in the middle of farmland, but I have seen some lederhosen so that’s something.

  4. Daisy: C’mon get happy! Now that’s in my head. Thanks a lot.MM: Welcome! Any gig that features people dressed like that is my kind of gig.Sally: They don’t dress like that in the middle of farmland…yet.Jo: You guys invented this sort of delightful mode of fashion.AFM: This is not an archival photo. This is New York City circa 2009. Viva!

  5. Is it some kind of Post-Economic Crash Sartorial Stress Disorder?I’m surprised you didn’t mention that only an old guy with a hair bun or “Lollapalooza cap” (Vice mag) can pull off that look.And horrified at your professed envy, of course.

  6. Were they together? What are the chances that two random strangers should coincide with such equally outrageous legwear? Was it a fancy pants party?

  7. HIF: And on Halloween.Nurse: Do you have a corset in that pattern?Blues: I guess I mean to say I wish I was that liberated from my vanity.Jason: Not HAIR! It was TIN PAN ALLEY RAG at the Roundabout.Tim: They had the look from top to bottom but I only had the nerve to post their pants. Those guys knew how to accessorize. Jimmy: Can you post of photo of you in your golfing spats?Ellie: They were, indeed, a couple. And theater is ALWAYS a fancy pants party.

  8. I wouldn’t wear them. I’m not sure if I’ve seen anyone wearing anything like that where I live, either.I do have a daughter who wear plants like the blue/white pair, if they were in different colours. The paisley? No.Whatever floats your boat, I always say.
