Saggy Pants are Butt-Ugly but Legal: Judge

This is a loss for fashion, style, taste and decency everywhere!

Saggy pants are butt-ugly but legal: judge -


I never had any intention of focussing on particular brands, at least not making it a regular thing, until I realised that these self-imposed rules (I like to create strict rules about EVERYTHING I do and only operate myself within those rules or my conscience has a cry) are going to get me no-where; plus, how am I ever going to keep this blog up if I keep being vague and general all the time! So, in lieu of such internal conflicts, I shall write about Colorado.

You know what? I always thought Colorado was an American company (because of the name). I always thought that they were one of those rare companies that didn’t believe in fashion hellenisation (I really have no idea how else to describe it). Actually, that’s a good point, can someone tell me the word I’m look for? Anyway, this is hardly important and I’ll continue on. So, as I was saying, I always thought that they were an American company until this blog article where I found out that they were Australian owned (and the head office is even in my city – how about that).

Colorado - Mens Footwear Colorado - Womens Footwear

For those who do not know the brand, Colorado, they make casual adventure clothing and footwear (there used to be a bigger focus on the footwear, now it is generally half and half). Their wears are usually very practical and is sometimes marketed as ‘adventurewear’ to give a brief idea. I am a little torn with Colorado to whether in fact I indeed like them, or not. A lot of their stuff tends to be very, well, what I see as middle aged attire (not as bad as another Australian company, Rivers, but still enough to make me cringe), but then again, they do have some pretty nice shirts and shoes, and some to think of it I have a paid of pants that I have only worn once (maybe). Wow, they are a very dark brown (I thought they were charcoal) and don’t look too bad on me – maybe I do own other pants.

Colorado - Womens Footwear Colorado - Womenswear - New Range In Store Now

One thing that can be said about Colorado is they are ridiculously well made. When you buy something you can easily expect it to last longer than anything else you may be wearing it with. The unfortunate thing is, the current winter range (at least what it shown of it on the official website) is rather unimpressive :(. Looks like you’ll just have to take my word on it.


Jeans > Other Pants?

Now this is the story all about how My life got flipped, turned upside down
And I’d like to take a minute and I’ll keep it clean
I’ll tell you how I stopped wearing normal pants and started with jeans
I wore cargoes and straight pants where ever I was
as casual pants go I thought they were the ones, cause
long shirts, short shirts, tee-shirts so fine
until my pants were ripped up mother took this as a sign
]Powerhouse M & F[ is the store she chose
I tried on some jeans and what do you suppose
I looked damn good, and with a pair of new shoes
I was a hot mother flipper with nothing to lose
and as my other pants when into decay
I’ve been wearing nothing but blue jeans since that very day

That is EXACTLY how it went down – if anyone tells you otherwise they’re a liar and a thief and probably wear suspenders.

But, there is always a but (he-he-he, butt), upon started this blog – whenever I started it (keeping track of time just lets you know how badly you’ve wasted it so let’s live in ignorant bliss for a little while longer) – I thought to myself, why not wearing non-jeans in a casual sense. I own plenty of business pants as I wear them to work and look pretty spiffy doing so, but I cannot remember wearing anything other than jeans since that day in a casual environment.

As you have no picked up so far, that is my current challenge to myself and I plan on fulfilling it.

Minute two: it’s not going well, I look at all of these picture and I cannot see myself wearing any of them! What does one wear with casual pants? Do tee-shirts still work? How come all of these picture are from the hips down? I need fashion guidance you bastards!

Minute five: I’ve found a nice pair for $250+ – I hate you fashion world.

Minute six: these look good but apparently I’m supposed to wearing them with thongs and without a top. That’s all well and good but I don’t own any thongs nor is my chest in any way attractive (it hasn’t grown/developed since I was twelve -_-).

Minute ten: I think I’ve found some that I can work with :).

Minute fourteen: These were amongst the most popular (I’m starting to suspect that maybe what I want and what you people want are completely different things).

Minute twenty-six: It looks like the longer I look the more trollop I find. In lieu of my impending pants breakdown I’m going to back to my original pair and see how that works out for me :/. I’ll get back to you kids on how well it turns out.
