Big Shoes, No Bum

Playing with proportions. Fashion seems to do this quite a lot really, sometimes it works in a surreal kinda way, other times it doesn't. Let's have a look at this guy. He's tall, incredibly thin, absolutely no sign of ass anywhere, but then again he doesn't really need one- with jeans that tight they're never falling down are they. In a way, you'd think that he would've maybe tried to underplay the emphasis on his 'lank' structure by not choosing THE chunkiest kicks on the market to complement his skinnys. I know high tops are 'the shit' right now, but there are other, less punctuated silhouettes out there that he could have gone for, dunks being the obvious less offensive option. Ahh, what do I care?? I just feel sorry for all the flack he's bound to catch.

It actually brings to mind a rather distasteful joke I once overheard about a famine stricken fella wearing Doctor Martens... The punchline was something to do with the poor chap being mistaken for a golfing implement. Sad.

Call me a badass, but I'm always tempted to sneak up behind these wee creatures and yank their trousers down. They are worn so low they're only kept up by virtue of their baggy boxers shorts. It's not right you know.

Expressed with a certain tone of authority. Well said. And yes, 'BADASS' you indeed are ;-)
