"There's No Right or Wrong Way to Wear Your Pants Right Now."

At Esquire. I'm not suggesting you actually read that. I just thought the headline is funny. I guess they're conceding that there is a wrong way to wear your pants later.

Hey, if gender is fluid, why not pants too?

Are we allowed to wear pants on our torso and shirts on our legs?

Or that earlier there'd been right and wrong ways. But for the time being, it's pants anarchy time.

It's ok to misplace your pants, too, but it can lead to multiple pregnancies.

Eventually Esquire will come around: They will eventually proscribe the real right way as pernicious in some manner. Like, it is racist to not wear your pants backwards or cinched far below the waist, etc.

If you've got any fluids on your pants, the right way to wear them is after you've done the laundry.

Be that as it may, putting them on backward makes it inconvenient to take a whizz.

At our house, my wife wears them.

It's the Zipper! It is always about the zipper being zipped up.

And clothing time moves on. While waiting on the wife at Belks, I wandered around in the men's department and found a 3 for 1 sale on dress slacks. That was unusual, but then I noticed that Hagar proudly made them out of re-cycled plastic bottles. Nobody must have wanted to pay $69.00 for that, but at $23.00 a piece, I sprang for them.

Dry cleaning of wool blends costs $10.00. And those new ones were still around when washing time came,,and we noticed the plastic bottle pants are machine washable...so we risked it. It worked. Just glad that we don't smoke.

I'm disappointed they didn't cover future pants-wearing styles. It'd be great fodder for discussion, one day, looking back on what people in the present speculated about fashion of the future.

Days of future pants past.

Men wear trousers. Women wear pants. Learned that in Marine Corps bootcamp in 1968.

Esquire has become a hollowed joke of what it once was, they took a dump on their history decades ago. Anyone taking sartorial advice from Esquire is lost.

Yoga pants are not sexy.

There is definitely a wrong way to wear pants. See Corky St Clair in Waiting for Guffman.

Another sin is if the pant legs are too short. If they are above the knees, they will get you mocked by our hostess.

OT but thinking of Corky St Clair, I am reminded of his idea for My Dinner with Andre action figures.

Surely our hostess would flog these through the portal if Amazon made them available.

You mean I'm not wrong if I wear my pants on my head?
