The Lyin' Liberal Media Tries to Trick Men Twice Today About Fashion

The lies of fashion were many and various today. And they were all aimed at the lesser, more worried sex.

1. PLEATS ARE BACK said the Murdoch St. Journal.

2. Perma-tied bow-ties are ALL THE RAGE, says the Gay Lady (that is the styles section of the New York Times).

Pleats are not back—the evidence was even sketchy in the "trend" piece, as they lumped in Prada with the four makers of pleated pants, with Prada's unpleated but darted pants. (There is a particular Prada pant infesting the stores right now that has 100% vertical pockets and is shaped pretty much like a jodhpur. It looks GREAT on the hanger and terrible on the average man, which is the exact opposite of what Prada does.) Please do not stop wearing flat-fronted pants. WE JUST TRAINED YOU ALL about this.

And no, "pre-tied" bowties are not acceptable, even if "no less a style icon than Jay-Z" wore one once. I mean I can see why he does, I suspect he has really weak fingers.

Jay-Z's got fingers like wily pythons and I'd thank you not to forget it.

I'M NOT TRYING TO IMPRESS YOU …WITH MY TIES
THEY DON'T MEAN NOTHING AT ALL
IT'S JUST ANOTHER EXPRESSION OF MINE
PLEATS DON'T MEAN NOTHING …AT ALL

This time next week, the Meatpacking sidewalks will be awash in bow-tied lads sporting fat pants, calling out to one another in cockney-rhyming slang.

Wait, I'm supposed to buy pants every year? No wonder I can't get ahead.

The only good thing you could have said about bow ties was that they were difficult to tie and thereby kept nearly invisible.

Bowties are never acceptable.

I was gonna make a crack about the guy who wears that ring and that watch being the style inspiration for the masses, but then it occurred to me to check the title tag on that image. Yup, it's right there and it's perfect.
