bringing back fashion trends

I really think we should bring back this fashion trend. I mean, seriously, how good would my husband's legs look in those tights? You would all be jealous your husbands didn't look that good.

Tights and mini skirts/dresses for men...I am certain that would really take hold in our machismo society!

i may or may not have a picture of ryan in tights in a play when he was 14. and he definitely looks better in them than me. great. now he's going to kill me.

By far the best part of this era in fashion was that men padded their stomachs. That's right, everyone loves a beer belly with tights.

HA! I love it!

why aren't we focusing on the makeup here, girls! Really, let's let THEM go through the hassle of finding lipstick in their purse.

I don't know. I think Jared might just look sexier than Christian in those tights. I mean, have you seen how skinny he is? He would have stick legs just like the guy in the picture.

First of all, this.

Second of all, I second pushing men back into makeup.

Thirdly, I am hoping that we aren't trying to bring typhoid fever back. Unless, of course, Justin Timberlake can make a totally catchy song.

Leggings for men?! Only Barcelona would be cool enough for that. Maybe then Christian wouldn't call Graham's leggings "leg warmers."

Christian said...

Batman shirt and tights = classic (Thanks Mad...)

Molly, When we have a girl you can do what you want with her but leave my boy alone with those leg warmers. He's got enough leg fat now that he doesn't even need pants.

Molly said...

Wait, who put the leg warmers on him the other day, Christian? What? You did? I rest my case. :)

You're right. I would be jealous, because there's no way I'd ever want to see my husband in tights. Not because I have anything against tights, of course. But he would never be able to carry it off. Sigh. ;)

...And your comment about the loss of fingers that runs in your husband's line made me laugh so hard!
