Made Of Awesome:
Clothes To Get You Beat Up Edition

So I see this add over at TPM and it is so astonishing that I actually click on it. Here it is.

This get-up is just flat-out made of awesome. Check dude out. Dude is wearing a bow tie! And a granny sweater! What is up, dude? What is up? What is up with that?

And do not miss the shoes. They are truly amazing.

I am going to ask a serious question here: does anyone dress like this? Anyone? Anywhere?

I predict that, if you wear this, the bully from your grade school will be teleported forward in time to kick your ass. (Actually, that'd be the one thing that'd get me to dress up in this clown suit; I'd do almost anything to run across that guy again and have a little talk...) In fact, if you wear this, perfectly reasonable and ordinary people might be seized with the irresistible desire to kick your ass. The mailman might just kick your ass. Or your neighbor. Or your grandma.

Would wearing this constitute a kind of cross-dressing of some type?

Would an actual female ever have sex with a guy wearing an, er...ensemble...such as this? Inquiring minds kinda sorta wanna know...

I have to say, my favorite part is the identical "douchebag with dimples" expression he has on in every picture ... like he's just smirking at how rich he is that he can get away with wearing clothes like this.

I'm somewhat shocked that you haven't seen the ridiculous hipsters who actually attempt to pull off these sorts of looks. Doesn't your university have them?

Actually, it looks to me more like Brooks Brothers is attempting to cash in on the kinds of silly nonsense hipsters have been wearing all decade. I expect their attempt to fail miserably, since hipsters all shop at thrift stores anyway.

That linen suit actually is pretty good, though, apart from the shoes and the off-coloured collar. I'd have gone with a plainer tie, but the overall look isn't horrible. (Unlike the bowtie and sweater combos on that same page.)

Nope. First of all, my university has a pretty bland/mainstream student body. The hipsters that do exist around these parts are of the tight-jeans-and-ironic-t-shirt variety...or maybe I just didn't know enough to recognize any preppy hipsters that might exist here as hipsters...

It's quite possible that the truly flagrant preppy hipsters I'm familiar with are a primarily NYC/Boston plague.

Heh heh. "Douchabag with dimples" is right. With regard to your closing question, Winst, the guy appears to be wearing a wedding ring... There's hope for us all!

Surely, surely, this is concrete evidence for the pussification of the American male.

You gotta point there, mac.

Looks like Kim du Toit was right after all...
