Crime of Fashion: Green and white horizontal stripe cycling shorts by Tim Camino


A question: do crimes of fashion matter as much, do you think, when it’s practical old sportswear we’re talking about? I mean, does it really matter what you wear to the gym? Or when you’re out running?

Of course it does! Because there is cute sportswear out there! There’s even cute, comfortable, practical sportswear out there! And because there is never, ever a good time to wear fluorescent green horizontal stripes on your thighs. Not even if they’re designer stripes, by Tim Camino. Not even when they’re on sale.

That is all.

    You know, if you were to put these alongside the Clowns des Garcons above there’d be a very definite theme going on… Are red noses coming in too?

    I was trying to figure out why these shorts looked so familiar, considering I have never seen anything like it in any store.
    Then I realized they look exactly like the character Strawberry Shortcake’s striped tights.

    These shorts are alright for a cartoon character, but I can’t imagine anyone else wanting to wear them. They do, however, make a statement – perhaps for the next costume party.

    Dr. Seuss called. He wants his bike shorts back.
