A "Must Have"


This was found in one of our upscale department stores. The newest thing in "fashion," indeed a "must have" - a khaki suit - in one case with torn jeans. It took me awhile to get the shot because I had to stop laughing!

Sometimes I'm convinced there is no hope for the human race!

We see young people wearing torn jeans here, but I haven't seen it like this as a suit! Weird..

I'll stay a "have not" type of person, thank you. :)

Given that I generally wear black... that is a hideous colour for guys to wear!

I just love it when retailers dictate what I MUST have.

I kinda like torn jeans, but I wouldn't buy a pair myself. I can't remember the last time I wore yellow.

As I looked at these outfits I laughed as well, Lowell!!! :)

"A Must Have"...ummm,,, NO!,,, I would not let my hubby out of the house in that 'Must Have'... lol!

The untucked shirt and torn jeans are just a fad with younger people. We had our own in the past which appeared just as crazy to others. However, I do agree with all of the above comments!

You are not wrong Lowell, we are definitely a strange lot! I have an image in my head of you taking this shot all the while having a good laugh 😀😀😀

Oh, is poverty coming back? My mom repaired clothes as best she could but my big brother was very tall, so nothing fit well.

Oh my gosh, I had almost the same thought yesterday when I went shopping. I actually saw a T-shirt at Nordstrom's that had those tiny little holes all over it. You know the kind you get from age and from wearing and washing thousands of times. I stood there looking at it and thinking of what my mother would say if she saw it hanging there with a price tag of $40.00. I do remember the time when jeans had to be clean and pressed. A time when underwear should never show and sequins were only for the evening. It seems that now everyone wants to look poor but they certainly don't want to be poor. I guess if you pay $40.00 for a T-shirt full of holes, you can show those poor people just how rich you are.
Sorry, I seem to have gone off on a bit of tangent there.

I am with you Lowell... LOL.

These outfits look terrible!

OMG, I'm with you, Lowell !

I think I'll pass on this one...

Good to know I wasn't the only one laughing about this scene! Well done.

Weird combination of clothing. I guess the shop suggests the torn jeans, shirt, and the yellow three-piece suit, so that you can mix and match clothing like the mannequins. I still have hope for human race as long as there are people who laugh at this.
