OMG We're Going To Fashion Hell

Ask my husband; every time the commercial for the Pajama Jean comes on television, I rant for five minutes. Yes, he timed me once, just to prove his point that I should be over it by now. But I'm not.

How can I be, when such things not only continue to exist but proliferate?

Exhibits B and C: "Junderpants" for men and women.

These things are neither day wear nor play wear; they fall into a hideous category unto themselves: lazy sloth dressing.

I'm all about comfort. Really I am. I sit here right now wearing jeans and a t-shirt, not some fantasy fashion garb. I've been cleaning house and taking blogging breaks. While I'm too sweaty to be considered "presentable," I do have the presence of mind to know both what I am doing (and so care about comfort and practical issues) and care about what I am wearing (out of consideration for those I live with and anyone who might ring that front door bell -- or the kids might bring over spontaneously). I am practical and respectful.

But I am neither confused nor rude.

The Pajama Jean and "junderpants" are for people who either don't know what they are doing or don't care about those people who have to look at them.

And I don't just mean the degree to which said garb might be flattering. I mean these people don't care that such garments (word used loosely) communicate a strong message of "I'd rather be in bed sleeping than spending time with you."

How rude.

I'm not sure what's wrong with the top Photo, maybe it's too fuzzy for my old eyes to see, However (and this is a big however) "b" and "c" are just...plain...ugly! I wonder if the person in "c" is aware of it but there is a totally unflattering butt bulge above the top (the word waistline doesn't apply) of the garment. The guys just look ridiculous. Just my 2 cents.
