The Silliest of Pants


You've seen this image before. Gant and MB s/s '11, right? It's based off of Marilyn Monroe's husbands. One of them being Joe DiMaggio, who probably inspired these pants with baseball bats embroidered on them. They're not bad, but I do have one problem with them. DiMaggio probably would have never worn them. When worn by a non-ball player, they're wimsical. When worn by a ball player, they're tacky and boastful. Do others wear their profession on their sleeve? Usually not. Do you see doctors wearing ties referencing their profession? Actually, sometimes you see pediatricians wearing ties with stethescopes on them, but they're the silliest of doctors.


Don't wear your profession on your sleeve. If people want to know that, they'll ask you.

Sidenote: If you're a pediatrician and are under the impression that you aren't silly, you're reading this, which means that you are quite silly.

  1. I mostly agree, but as with everything else, I think there are some exceptions to the rule. For instance, I think Martin Greenfield's scissors/measuring tape cufflinks are insanely bad ass.

    Hmm... actually, that's about the only exception that I can think of.
