Hi, you must be Janine’s dad. I’m Lonnie, here to pick her up for our date. Is she ready?

Yes sir, I thought tonight we’d catch a movie, then stop by the malt shop for…

Excuse me? No, you’re right, I’m not wearing any pants. It’s the new look! I saw it yesterday at London Fashion Week! Awesome, huh? Trousers are so 2008!

Say what? You have a “no pants, no chance” policy?

That’s so bogus! Ow! JANINE, come here! Ow! Your trouser-fascist father is beating me with an ice cream scoop! Ow! Ow!

Knee highs and short shorts.It was a bad look on old men, and the above picture has proved it is a bad look on all men.

Onesies for adults! I’m sure they’ll sell in California.

It might help if this guy didn’t have a “Hannibal Lecter wannabe” facial expression…No. I take it back. Covering the face doesn’t help!Creepy!

Is anyone really surprised by the ridiculousness of men’s fashion, particularly any kind that is meant to show offas much man-flesh as possible?It’s the same reason why most female fashion models arebuilt like 10-year-old boys…Do I really have to say it..?When was the last time you heard of a perfectly straightfashion mogul?Let the flaming, and accusations of homophobia begin…

Well, that look works for a super fit hot man, but PLEASE don’t let it catch on with men who look like Jack Black.

How ‘metrosexual’. How ‘homosexual’. How ‘neutered’. How ‘beta-male’.Just another step toward the neutering of all men.A man with a real pair would not be able to wear this onsie outfit bcs he would be considered too pornographic.BTW-this model guy is NOT hot.He is femmy. Good God he must shave his whole body.ICKY.Please bring back testosterone!

What confuses me is that the guy is wearing a turtleneck…long-sleeves…and socks pulled up to his knees. If it’s cold enough for all that…why the man-panties?
