Although pants like this may seem silly to us, Fashion designer Tom Ford has pointed out that they would hardly be sillier than dresses that push women's boobies out so far in front that they can't see their feet while walking down stairs.
If men had to suffer the indignities of having their intimate body parts exploited by "fashion", then the rules of fashion for both genders might change dramatically.
I can imagine a few of my friends putting in an order for a few pair of these... LOL
But more mysteriously, what's that blue thing coming out of the sleeve?
I don't know what the blue thing is supposed to be ... but if you "clickety to embiggen" as Bil would say, you will see an enlarged JPEG which makes it obvious that the blue line has been Photo-shopped onto the photo ... so whatever the blue line is supposed to represent, it isn't really real.
A.J., I'm wondering if the blue line is a kind of copyright squib -- which hasn't, of course, stopped people from using the shot (you'll note I found it on Queerty).
You raise a very interesting point about the display of genitals and breasts in clothing. A few centuries ago, cod-pieces were what the best (i.e., royal) people wore. These days it seems that hiding the penis is a fixture of fashion protocol. On the other hand...not sure I'd want to see these on Wal-Mart shoppers. ;)
>> "see these on Wal-Mart shoppers"
Must. Get. Image. Out. Of. Head.
Yes, I wondered if maybe it's an intellectual property logo of some kind ... but is it just a coincidence that one end of the blue thingie seems to slip under his coat, and the other end seems to slip under his sleeve?
Those pants are pretty hot, but they'd be kind of a pain to wear considering you'd have to slip your wang in and out every time you used the toilet...
Also, I don't mind tight-fitting pants that show a little bulge, but I still like some things to be left to my pervy imagination :b
Not to mention... what do you do to prevent a pee stain after using the facilities? I doubt they're lined that well. LOL
