Not a pretty sight, is right. When we lived in South Florida, we used to see many old Canadian men with big bellies wearing speedos and walking on the beach. What a way to ruin someone's ocean view!

You HATE women who do that? That's a bit extreme, don't you think?

And those drop crotch pants are HORRID! Ugh!

LOL!


I don't know if you were the one dissing sweats but I will wear them sometimes. I don't see what the big deal is. Well, if they have JUICY or PINK written on the butt, I find that highly tacky.

As for dressing up to go to the grocery, I don't see that too much unless the woman is in work clothes or Sunday church clothes.

Nah, I wasn't the one dissing sweats. I don't think I have an opinion on them either way.

Also, there are some out there that I'm not sure if the qualify as sweats? When I hear sweats I tend to think of the pants that I would see when I worked at Wal-mart; the cheap ones that are in solid color that have matching sweatshirts; the pants are cuffed at the bottom.

But it seems in recent years pants that qualify as sweats are a little more stylish than I used to see when I was a kid in the 80's. Maybe they are fitted better, or have a nice design... So I guess for me it depends on the style, color, etc.

Those collared, three button polo shirts (even better with the collar up); just how long are guys going to wear these thinking they are dressed up?

Hipsters wearing the black plastic rimmed "nerd" type glasses.

Meticulously groomed facial hair on guys.

"Plug" style earrings.

Skinny jeans

Guys dressed up like cowboys who have never even seen a real cow or ridden a real horse.

I think they're probably talking more about yoga pants or the terrycloth pants that come in sets instead of the traditional 'wal mart' sweatpants. I have two pairs of 'yoga' style sweatpants, one from my alma mater and the other from MIT where I'm hoping to get into a Masters program...I haven't really had anyone call me un-classy for wearing MIT sweatpants
