Manly trousers.

These are a little edgy — they're by Isabel Mastache — but I approve:

I am relieved that this image did not "pop up" while I was at work.

Methadras said...

Meh. To small for me.

Jacob said...

What's with the third hand on the left?

Years ago, comedian Thom Sharp had a pair of "mantyhose," tailored to fit the male genitals just like that. No pix on the web, unfortunately.

Revenant said...

That is the stupidest outfit I have ever seen. And I was around for bell bottoms AND parachute pants.

Good way to lose your front teeth where I live.

john said...

I never trust anyone who dresses left.

I would never wear light colored dress pants. I'm getting to that age where the possibility of dribbling ... well, you know.

I once attached myelf to my pants zipper on the up-zip. This looks entirely too dangerous.

Ann Althouse said...

In the late 90s, I saw Marilyn Manson in concert in a pair of black leather pants something like that. Except the "penis" was a couple feet long. And he handled it amusingly.

Not MY front teeth.

john said...

I really doubt that Mariyln Manson has a penis.

Bought these pants for Meade yet?

Skyler said...

Those shoes look like a bad idea. Can you imagine all the blisters you'd get between your toes? Those shoes are not for those who are serious about their feet.

Meade said...

Hey, what can I say? I'm a pronator. I need specially designed clothes.

Palladian said...

"In the late 90s, I saw Marilyn Manson in concert..."

I need to reconsider my respect for you.

As for these pants? Total rip-off of something Eldrige Cleaver thought up almost 40 years ago. And the Cleaver Pants are way more... impressive than this fey little Po-Mo beige boy.

We are so going back to the Roman Empire days in everything. I see that Caligula is back in fashion. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Do you think that Tiger will wear those in his next tournament?

john said...

I remember having to explain to my young daughter what a codpiece was. She first thought it was a fish. I said that was correct, and thus escaped the conversation.

This is where the term "Boni-Maroni" came from.

traditionalguy said...

Tiger could get back into endorsement deals with one from Priapus Motors that sell penis shaped sports cars for the stylish man.

exhelodrvr1 said...

Don't wash them in cold water - they'll shrink.

He has one, but he needs to screw it on.

edutcher said...

In Mexico, men wear bathing suits like that. It's hilarious to see some guy laying down and the front of his trunks is 3 inches higher than the plane of his body.

Ann Althouse said...

I would have thought Meade was too manly for something like that.

WV "lawer" What Ann says to the other law profs; as, "I'm lawer than you"; see programmers, computer, "I'm techier than you".

Ginna said...

Methadras said...

Thanks. Now I have the song "Detachable Penis" in my head. "I saw my penis lying on a blanket, next to a broken toaster oven..."

""In the late 90s, I saw Marilyn Manson in concert..." I need to reconsider my respect for you."

1. Marilyn Manson just happened to be the opening act back then. We went to see Nine Inch Nails (and it was great!).

2. I was a parent who was always willing to drive the kids to the concerts they wanted to see. I doubt if I'd have gone to any rock concerts in those years if it was just for myself, but I was the driver/chaperone, and as it happened, I had a great time seeing many of the great bands of that era.

Schorsch said...

So, shorts are never acceptable, but anatomical...uh, tailoring(?) is fine by you?

Just keeping track.

Ralph L said...

Do they make slacks with a better cut?

I hope that model is well paid--the dick is a small part of the humiliation of that outfit.

The Crack Emcee said...

Except for the size of the appendage (heh) this is definitely The Macho Response.

Peter V. Bella said...

Didn't one of those Sixties Black Radicals or Black Panthers in exile- running from the law- in Africa design a pair of jeans like that?

madawaskan said...

I dunno but that guy looks hung over.

Palladian said...

See my previous comment.

PWS said...

Do they come in circumsized too?

It can happen to any man regardless of age:

No matter how you shake and dance
The last drop always falls in your pants.

Peter

john said...

Yea, would that it be just a drop.

Trooper York said...

Courtney Love has often said that Nine Inch Nails would more properly be named Three Inch Nails.

Make of that what you will.

My husband and I went ice skating today. I know totally gay. There are many indoor ice skating rinks here that were built in the early 1900's. This place was in Quincy. It was totally cool, and old school. We were skating with all the Quincy roughnecks and townies.

We had sex before we went. He was on top of me looking at me holding my hog, which is rather large, squeezing some pre cum out while I was cupping his balls with one hand and playing with his foreskin with the other. I said to him, I want your cum, and with that he blew all over my sculpted tits. I then blew. He fell on top of me, told me he loved me and massaged his load onto my firm erect and hard tit. I then said get a towel bitch. He gently applied warm water to the towel, lightly brushed away the two loads and then we took a shower.

We then went ice skating. Tomorrow we will be downhill skiing in Stowe. Did I tell you he bought me a macbook?

thank you.

Those winter olympic commercials make Vancouver look ab fabs. Supposed to be one of the best urban living environments in the world. Love the buildings.

Again thank you.

Alexandro said...

These pants are about as goofy as speedos. How many streight guys wear them. As for drops, shake side to side. You small guys should streach it out and squeeze behind the head and shake for the last drop. Droppers should wear cotton tighty whities or big prostrate guys... Depends.

Just remember, life's a bitch and then you die.

Alexandro said...

Oh my, Althouse is a window on the world.

Sixty Grit said...

It's been done - my college classmate Eldridge Cleaver invented pants like that back in the 60s. You could look it up. I won't.

"Those shoes look like a bad idea."

Actually, ape feet are a perpetually-refreshing joke for one's wife. They are also a locus for the sort of socially pained moment that was excruciating as a kid, and is merely amusing now. Teen girls in the checkout line say in huge ValleyVoices, "Mom, like, did you, like, SEE that old guy's shoes? They are, like, so totally cool...."
"Ssshhh. He can HEAR you. That's Mr. Skyler."
"THAT old guy? Hear me? No he can't. He's got, like wireless plastic earbuds. Mom, I have, like, GOT to have them, but in the lavender. Like, SERIOUSLY, those are SO cool."
"Ssshhh, Moonblossom. We'll see..."

They are the most comfortable shoes you'll own, though it's worth taking more than normal care with the fit; the size conversion table isn't great and you want them snug. I've worn them in snow, on river trips, hunting, "socially." No blisters. Two uses I don't suggest are backpacking on trails with a lot of jagged rock, and wildland firefighting.

pduggie said...

There is an old SF story by William Tenn. "The Masculinist Revolt."

In it, a guy revolts against a unisex future by bringing back the codpiece, as an article of clothing that women just would look ridiculous wearing. He starts a movement thereby.

Check it out sometime

Chip Ahoy said...

This is taking the tea-bag revolution too far.

Palladian said...

"They are the most comfortable shoes you'll own"

Yeah, that's what someone told me about those "MBT" shoes, which turned out to be one of the most excruciatingly uncomfortable pair of shoes I've ever purchased. Fortunately I was able to sell them on eBay.

kentuckyliz said...

If he's a right handed wanker, there could be a lot of pilling.

I think that's a great idea for a male figure skater's outfit.

EDH said...

The "arm jacket" is handy in case you want to pleasure yourself underneath a buttoned jacket.

I remember that NIN/MM tour. It was probably Manson's first real arena tour. I didn't even know who they were when they walked in. I recall Marilyn was much more "female" in his personae/wardrobe back then.

Two of them, I think Twiggy Ramirez and Madonna Wayne Gacy, left the building after their set and came back with a real goat head and put it on display in catering.

Trent Reznor told the people on the floor to tear-up the chairs because the audience was too mellow, and they did. Reznor had to write a substantial check to pay for damages.

Good times.

America is in decline and what every middle manager at IBM, ATT, Microsoft, and Caterpillar is in search of is a suit with a fake arm, fake penis, and a fake hairless ball sack.

Fred4Pres said...

Do they have them in shorts?

Pogo said...

Frivolous decadence amidst decline.

Weimar redux.

amba said...

Imagine trying to get into those! You'd need arousal AND lubrication.

Awesome song by the way.

Looks to me like he "came" "up" "short".

Subtle highlight for the trifecta of English win right there.

I read this with some skepticism and all it left me with is thinking that you are secretly a tea-bagger.

Methadras said...

I've seen NiN to many times to count and they are great to watch. My top 5 favorite band of all time.

Beth said...

Sadly, I missed that tour. But he came through my neighborhood later. I thought he was collecting for the Kiwanis food drive, so I gave him some cans of pumpkin-pie filling.

Rather like Pogo,I think it is time to reread Tactitus and Gibbon who both chronicle the decline of civilization.

In a word: repulsive.

They feel like being barefoot, except that your feet are protected. So a sharp chip of gravel on the road will be felt but won't hurt. I have gotten blisters from running in them but not in the toes.

chuckR said...

etiquette note: when shaking hands with a man thusly attired, your hand motion should be quite deliberate and controlled.

Jay Vogt said...

You have a problem with men wearing shorts, but this is somehow OK?

kentuckyliz said...

Nine Inch Nails isn't singular--Nine Inch Nail.

It's plural.

So, two 4 1/2'ers or three 3'ers.

LOL

Of course, for the obtuse, "nine inch nails" refers to the nails used in crucifixion like in Jesus' case.

If I had a band, I'd call it Longinus' Spear, or Bad Drugged Wine on a Sponge on a Stick, or Crown of Thorns, or the Crossbeam, or Steel Hook Studded Whip, or The Pillar, or Savior In a Pit, ......

(actually for real it would be Zuzu's Petals).

kentuckyliz said...

Actually, I wouldn't use Zuzu's Petals, other bands have already used the name. A quicky-wiki shot down that dream. Sigh.

He's got a bit of a pencil dick, doesn't he. It's sort of like a cold-weather banana: forever slender and never capable of achieving full growth.
