Alexander Wang attaches grandad’s boxers to granny’s sweatpants

All Kinds of Wrong

Oh, that Alexnder Wang! Such a kidder! As if it wasn’t bad enough that he’s already damaged our eyesight once this year with his creation of the Worst! Shorts! Ever!, he’s now gone ahead and ATTACHED those shorts to a pair of drab looking sweatpants. AS IF WE WOULDN’T NOTICE.

Let’s see:

Clothes That Are Stuck Together – Check
Peep Toe Boot Rule in effect – Check
– Sweatpants that should never been seen in public – Check
– Overly literal application of the Underwear as Outerwear trend – Check

It’s affirmative, folks: we have ourselves a fully-fledged crime of fashion right here. These are $115 at Saks Fifth Avenue.

    I’m among the people who are constantly freezing. I’m also prone to bladder infections. So when it’s cold outside I tend to wear not one but several layers of tights, leggings, bike pants, etc. underneath my jeans. Without jeans it looks a lot like this… which is why I make sure not to be seen in public this way.
    So why somebody else would is beyond me…

    Maybe there supposed to be worn underneath real clothes? Like long johns? if so, yes, they’re ugly, but at least useful. Still wouldn’t wear them though.

      What’s the point of making them look like boxers stuck to sweatpants, though, if they’re not supposed to be seen? Although if they ARE designed to be worn underneath something, I’ll breathe a sigh of relief!

    Obviously these aren’t actually made to be sold and worn but it’s a lot of money manufacturing clothes to waste on a joke.

      They are being sold, though: they’re $115 at Saks Fifth Avenue, who are selling them in their “Women’s Clothing” section, which suggests that they are expecting people to wear them. They also have them styled up all over the site with various other pieces.

    They remind me of Ben’s design on Project Runway in the elements challenge….He didn’t know how to make pants, so they looked like they had a jockstrap on them!
