I didn’t really think I had a position on the issue of pleats vs. flat-front pants – until today. There are those who feel strongly about this issue – you know who you are. I, however, have mixed feelings about this. I’m referring to guys’ pants as I’m fairly certain that females have abandoned pleats altogether – please warn me if you are aware of an up-and-coming cutting-edge fashion that features pleated pants for women. God help us.
Nonetheless, I consider pleats a personal fashion preference and a style that should not be subject to any fashion “rules”. Wear pleats till the cows come home – but today I discovered an exception and I’m afraid I am forced to put my foot down at……pleated denim.
There is a man in my class who wore pleated jeans today and it made me giggle. I usually don’t care what people wear as I don’t pretend to have much fasion sense (If it were socially acceptable to wear head-to-toe black every day — I would do it…) but the pleated jeans are too much. To add insult to injury – they are acid-wash. It’s too much. I wanted so badly to take a picture of this – and just couldn’t bring myself to be that blatant. This will have to do…
I appreciate the response to the trivia questions – it really showcases the level of stimulation my readers are willing to sustain… Mindless trivia gets hundreds of hits and 6 comments in one day while musings of current events get heckling and demands for more trivia… I love it.
