Washington Post Risks Exposing Male Readers To Fashion Again

To catch you up: the Washington Post writes about fashion for men maybe once or twice a year, because lord knows fashion for men is gay and there are no gay men in Washington and THIS IS NOT THEIR READERSHIP, OK? So anyway, last time they featured six whole items, including pleated shorts from J. Crew and bow ties and Sperry Topsiders. This time they scaled it back to five things because, you know, ow, strenuous. On the fashion-forward menu this season for the adventurous male: hair pomade, Levi's skinny jeans ("Turn up the cuff to bring the look firmly into 2010," they suggest with a straight face), V-neck sweaters from J. Crew, Bass saddle shoes (edgy!), and three-piece suits (SO edgy!). The end. I'm not linking to the slide show because 1. I just spoiled it and 2. it starts with a 40-second ad from BP.

There are so many things about this that are incredibly, hilariously wrong about this.
