Menswear Monday: An Open Letter to Thom Browne

THOM

Dear Thom Browne,

PLAIDSHORTSUIT

First off, I’m a fan. I’m totally behind your shorts obsession, and I love what you do with plaid.

TWO PLAIDS

I don’t even mind when you mix two plaids together!

SHORTSLEEVEDTUX

A short-sleeved tux? Why not!

TANCAPE

You want men to wear capes again? Well, me too!

BATHINGSUIT

A return to old-fashioned bathing suits? With America’s rising obesity rates, that sounds like a plan!

WHTECROTCH

But seriously, I did a double-take when my poor eyes saw this.

GREYCROTCH

And it certainly wasn’t any better in gray, although it did look a little less like a diaper.

GREYROSETTESUIT

I thought this suit would be better if it didn’t remind me of an elephant.

BLACKWHITEROSETTESUIT

Turns out I was dead wrong. Now it reminds me of a terrible penguin who likes rosettes.

GREYFRINGE

This gave me flashbacks of being afraid for my life at the carwash when I was little.

WHITEFRINGE

And it terrified me even more as a skirt.

REDBLUEWHITEFRINGE

Though I can see this one coming in handy on the Fourth of July.

NOPANTS

And this one coming in handy in the bedroom.

HORO

Still A Fan,
Ashley
