Wooden legs, courtesy of Cheap Monday jeans

Wooden_legs Arrr, me hearties! Here be wooden legs! Two of ’em! Yo ho ho and a bottle o’rum!

Er, sorry about that. These aren’t actual wooden legs, of course, but Cheap Monday have tried to make them look like they are, and you have to give them some credit for sheer imagination at least, no? Think about it: as well as dressing up as a pirate and scaring all your friends, you’ll also be able to stand around in the woods, disguised as a tree. Seriously, who wouldn’t want to do that?

This photo also demonstrates what we believe is another fashion crime, namely the wearing of skinny jeans with sneakers. Then again, of course, what kind of footwear would you wear when you found yourself with a pair of tree trunks for legs? Your input here would be most welcome…

    I see teenagers here in Tallinn with the skinny jeans / sneakers combo all the time. I was wondering if it was some kinda secret cool thing that I wasn’t in on. Thank God for confirming that for me.
    And heck, i can’t think of a single way to redeem tree trunk legs. So if you’re gonna go for it it, go hard!

    I’d keep the theme going with a pair of stacked heels made of wood and brown patent leather. Maybe throw on a green vest top and long brown fingerless gloves to make your arms and fingers look like branches.

    Wow, this is terrible. Not only that, but it doesn’t fit on the model correctly! Stretching around the crotch are never attractive, putting the whole wooden thing behind.

    Clogs. I would wear wooden clogs.

    I can’t decide whether I love them or hate them, but I have absolutely no idea what I’d wear them with, assuming that I’d wear them.
