Things I Hate: Capri Pants
Needs of the Many ^

Posted on 07/16/2009 2:59:42 PM PDT by vaper69

Introducing a new series to Needs of the Many … “Things I Hate.” They are numerous, and they need to be shared.

In the inaugural post of “Things I Hate” I will take aim at the scourge of female fashion … capri pants.

I don’t know where the capri came from, and I don’t give a damn. They have all the glamor and charm of a bucket full of vomit, and that opinion is nearly universal among men. I have yet to meet a man who likes his woman to wear capris.

The irony is how ‘cute’ women seem to think capris are. Further proving that women are just as clueless about their fashion as men are about theirs. Trust me women, you look about as ‘cute’ in capri pants as a plumber’s hairy ass crack after 12 hours of cleaning up fecal matter in 120 degree heat. Alright, I take that back. The plumber still has more style than you.

They were called pedal pushers when I was a kid.

How about men wearing Capri pants? Grown men. It's unbelievable. I am died laughing when I saw pictures of a friend's father in Europe trying to fit in by wearing capri pants. Just ridiculous.

Capri pants are not a new invention. Pedal pushers, as they were once called, have been around since the ‘40s or ‘50s. What’s the problem?

The pants I’m talking about are dark jet black with no line or form. They look like the pants a man would wear with a funerial suit.

They’re called “Manpris”, if you can believe it.

Black or white capris that are VERY fitted can look nice if worn with a top that shows a bit of cleavage.

Biggest turn-off are non-stretch denim capris.

Ok, after a certain age or um stage, there should be as much coverage as possible without melting in the summer heat. I think they are a good compromise to catching a glimpse of cellulite at the grocery store.

OK. This is the last straw. Anti capri pants people: Get over it. Turn your head when you see one of us coming so you won’t have to puke.

Just as I thought, written by a man. Why don’t he complain about the crack showing trousers/shorts/etc. that are being forced on us women? I shopped today, do you think a woman can find anything that fits up around their waist? NO! Designers apparently don’t know anything about what a lady is comfortable wearing these days. When a lady gets to middle age, she wants her clothes to fit properly, not showing the tummy bulge and rear crack! Speak up ladies, don’t let them force this style on us forever!!

IMHO, women who wear capri’s must have a well tapered calf and trim ankle....otherwise they look like piano legs.....

Also ladies....ya’ gotta be in shape.....

Pointless immature ranting passing itself off as ‘blogdom’ journalism and commentary.

Why I let you waste 5 minutes of my life I have no idea. But I will never get it back. I cannot express in this format the appropriate disdain and sarcasm to even attempt a backhanded ‘thank you’ for this utter waste of my time and cerebral space.
Next...

Pockets! I want Pockets. Women’s clothes and little girl clothes do not have POCKETS!

I dressed my girls in boy pant throughout their growing up years esp oshgosh, for the pockets!

I cannot find enought women’s skirts and jackets with pockets for work

My wife looks pretty good in capri pants, and she knows it.

All I do is grab a little cheek to let her know I approve.

I see a need for some introspection, here.

Maybe you had a bad experience pedaling to the Isle of Capri and digging for clams?

Not bad. The seemless dark black pants I am addressing are all over television shows and infomercials. They are hideous things. I could see the women in Orwell’s “No sex league” wearing those.

My wife and I were watching “Arrested Development” dvd’s and every single woman in the show regularly wore those them, including in a scene where the blonde sister wonders why no men are turning heads to look at her as she visits her dad in prison. I started yelling at the TV, “It’s the pants!!”

Then there’s a Viagra commercial where this old dude is dancing with his wife who is also wearing seemless black pants. I said to my wife, “I know how to save him the money. Tell her to change clothes.”

What am I missing? The capri pants seem cuter to me.

All you can see is her her head, feet, and outer shape. I don’t care for it. Dunno if it’s universal.

The knee pants shown in pictures here look pretty normal to me. That’s what we used to call them. Us little boys even got stuck wearing them for about six months back in 1964 when our moms accidentally thought they were cute and stylish.

Have you seen dresses?! All of them for hoochies unless one wants to pay an arm and a leg. What happened to nice, demure summer dresses?

I’m not at all sure you correctly identify capri pants...check the Audrey Hepburn picture...they may be capri. Brush the ankle and have a slit at the side...very trim at the ankle and really show off spectacular shoes. Not to be worn by anyone fat hipped or fat ankled.

Still think you are describing capri’s?

Pedal pushers, long bermudas, clam diggers, modern versions of each, etc. are not capri’s. Think Sophia Loren in an Italian movie...not sexy? You are wrong!
