American Apparel under Fashion Police investigation for “non-hippie related use of tie dye”

Aa-harem-pants

We’ve had a few emails now relating to American Apparel’s tie dye cotton spandex harem pants, but we think Delaney said it best, writing, “I think that you should arrest this monstrosity for non-hippie related use of tie dye, in addition to the obvious drop-crotch horror. The five-star rating, suggestion to look at AA’s “Afrika Print” version, and matching tie-dye tube top force me to reach for the eye bleach.”

Of course, the, uh, great thing about these is that, if you don’t want to wear them as a jumpsuit, as shown above, you just just yank down the top and wear them as a stripper pants. Look:

Aa-tie-dye-harems

Yeah. If you’re done with that eyeball bleach, Delaney, would you mind passing it in this direction?

    I soooo didn’t need to see those photos!
    Yes, please pass the eye bleach, mental floss, scotch & anything else that can help me reclaim the last few minutes.
    I think we all know why that poor model is wearing sunglasses. I can see the conversation now “Well mom, I know they asked me to take my top off — but it was for art… err, they were tastefully done…umm I was young & needed the $$$$” Not the sort of conversation anyone wants to have. I’m sure these pics won’t make it to the portfolio!
    Thanks for the warning fashion police. I live in a Calif college town & I can just see someone trying to pull off the tie-die street walker look. Now I can avert my eyes in sympathy :}

    Strapless jumpsuits look like really, really freakishly high-waisted pants.
    Nerdy chic.

    Well, they might be handy to have if you had to go out and every single top you owned was in the wash. “Hey, these pants are so roomy… I’ll just yank em up to my armpits! Problem solved.”
