Bernhard Willhelm’s Half Pants: half the pants, double the fashion crime

Half pinstripe pant, half camo-print short. Perfect for those days when… actually, you know what? We can’t even finish that sentence. We have no idea what these would be perfect for. Your suggestions are welcome.

If you just want to buy them, meanwhile, you may be disappointed to learn that halving the pants doesn’t necessarily mean halving the price: these are $340 from here.

    Shoes not blues

    Perfect for the day your innate fashion schizophrenia finally breaks free and runs for the hills (the camo bit) clutching some heavy files from work (the pinstripe bit)? Because, you know, that might happen. At least if you live in fashion-designer land.

    I first thought, “These HAVE to be a joke.” Then I realized they were real and felt sad. So awful.

    These are perfect for halloween when you can’t make up your mind what you want to be, so you just go as both.

    Perfect for those days when the weather is oh-so-hot but you’re wearing a wooden leg and you don’t want to show it.

    Um, perfect for the day when your right hip really needs to keep hidden in a bush, while your left leg goes to work?

    I actually can’t believe these exist.

    Dear sweet holy jeebus…this must be a sign that the apocalypse is nigh. There can be no other explanation.

    for days you feel like wading, get one leg in, and change your mind.

    I actually made a kind of strangled retching noise when I saw these. Make it stop. Make it stop.

    Since these are worse than useless and ridiculously overpriced, are they also Daylight Robbery?

    Perhaps for the days you plan to straddle a cold front?
    these are possibly the most heinous things i have ever seen

    Rock Hyrax

    This is one of those posts that make me stop and check it’s not 1st April. Let this garment never see the light of day…

    what in the world! these aren’t the least bit practical. if it’s hot out one leg sweats. if it’s cold one freezes. i hope to god no one buys these…

    Maybe with colored tights and chunky wedges? Although it would work better if the camo part was capri length. I don’t know what to put on top, maybe some cotton voile or jersey? Simple and a little draping.

    Yes, I know how fashion-y ridiculous I sound, but that was really my first thought, and now I am totally seeing them in my mind on Facehunter.

    I kinda want to see someone wear those to the mall to see all the estranged looks they get.
