aldo-vallon - December 4, 2017
I was not aware that break away pants came back into fashion. This is great news for me because I believe I still have my pants from fifteen years ago in storage at my ma's place. Not that I am looking to wear them myself, but maybe I can sell them to some hipster clothier. I learned my lesson all those years ago and have vowed never to wear pants that come off that easy again.
It is hard enough to live as an adolescent when pantsing someone in a normal pair of jeans is the fad. I was always looking over my shoulder, living every minute with paranoia. But when one makes it even easier for the assailants by putting snaps along the entirety of each side of the pants, one might as well not even wear pants to begin with.
I do question the integrity of Hailee Steinfeld's break away pants. I do not think the lace that they are made out of is strong enough to stand against the yanking that is required to properly unsnap the buttons. One good yank is liable to tear it in two. That previous sentence is also applicable to uncircumcised adolescents.
