14. Our "RKBA'ers" are resourceful: heck, a "pro gun progressive" (now PPR'd, alas) once dreamed

up a waterproof rig so he and his fellow Gungeoneer's could tote their assault rifles into the bathing stall, just in case some passing bad guy got a sudden hankering to barge down the door and attempt to swipe their bottle of Head & Shoulder's right out of the shower from them, or that last bar of Irish Spring off the towel rack...

breathable but the codpiece defeats the purpose.

13. Take me back, take me back, to my Eldridge Cleaver pants...

Eldridge Cleaver, Soul on Ice, remember.

While living in France Cleaver attempted to become a fashion designer. His most famous creation was pants with a "socklike codpiece outlining the wearer's genitals" sometimes known as "penis pants". Newsweek magazine quoted him: "I want to solve the problem of the fig-leaf mentality. Clothing is an extension of the fig leaf -- it put our sex inside our bodies. My pants put sex back where it should be." To advance his enterprise Cleaver took out an advertisement in The International Herald Tribune newspaper hoping to find investors and manufacturers and continued to promote the pants after returning to America.


When the revolution is co-opted by fashion:




I'm sorry, the lacy codpiece surround just doesn't put sex where it should be. (There is no appropriate inappropriate smiley on the palette ).

19. Those trousers look like trouble.

If those things ever took off, one might imagine that some gentlemen would be looking for the padded version to both protect and enhance their assets...

I think the idea is just silly--a real "point and laugh" garment. I think the same of the outfit in the OP. Just looks dumb to me!

I've owned versace clothing once upon a time. Still have a tie I think. Every once in a while a good edgy designer jumps the shark. This is one of those times.

22. The Kinks: And when he pulls his frilly nylon panties right up tight...

...He feels a dedicated follower of fashion.



Kinks - Dedicated Follower Of Fashion
Songwriters: DAVIES, RAYMOND DOUGLAS

They seek him here, they seek him there,
His clothes are loud, but never square.
It will make or break him so he's got to buy the best,
Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.

And when he does his little rounds,
Round the boutiques of london town,
Eagerly pursuing all the latest fads and trends,
Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.

Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is).
He thinks he is a flower to be looked at,
And when he pulls his frilly nylon panties right up tight,
He feels a dedicated follower of fashion.

Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is).
There's one thing that he loves and that is flattery.
One week he's in polka-dots, the next week he is in stripes.
Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.

They seek him here, they seek him there,
In regent street and leicester square.
Everywhere the carnabetian army marches on,
Each one an dedicated follower of fashion.

Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is).
His world is built round discoteques and parties.
This pleasure-seeking individual always looks his best
Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.

Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is).
He flits from shop to shop just like a butterfly.
In matters of the cloth he is as fickle as can be,
Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.
Hes a dedicated follower of fashion.
Hes a dedicated follower of fashion.

It might appeal to gay men, but it doesn't appeal to this straight woman. Keep your boxers or even your tightie whities.
That is repulsive to me.

47. I don't think these are serious clothes attempts

Maybe they just put them for artistic and entertainment purposes.


Reminds me of concept cars



Or maybe they put something out there and see if it will catch on. I doubt it though, men are too afraid of looking unmasculine to other guys and also have to worry about looking attractive to women (gay men worry about looking attractive to other guys as well.) Maybe back in the 80s, which was when androgyny was at its peak (at least for bands and music artists.)

It seems like the fashion houses are trying to create one but real anti-fashion starts in the streets not in boutiques.
