Short

I bought new shoelaces yesterday. It was quite exciting. I also bought a pair of men's shorts that was on sale, and I can see why. No self-respecting man would wear these shorts. First, they are grey-black suede. If a man has suede something or other, it's probably going to be a wallet, or perhaps a jacket. Not shorts. The shorts are also impractical. There is no button-zipper mechanism, but only a strip of velcro (I can only imagine what difficulty this presents for the standing-up fashion of relief). To make matters worse, there is only one side pocket, and a lacey shoelace to mask the velcro. Don't you just love ugly clothes?

Yes, yes I do.

And you forgot shoes. I have suede shoes.

Suede shoes aren't ugly. And while clothes may make the man, I think that a certain pretty girl I know can overcome ugly ones.

Um, those sound like swim trunks. They usually have velcro closure, one pocket, and a suede-like texture . . .

Ah, adventures in clothing!

What? No way would swim trunks EVER be suede.

Look at the tag . . . my guess is it says "100% nylon shell" or something like that. They just texture it to feel fuzzy like suede . . .

Enjoy your swim trunks!
