because one guy found some green pants at salvation army for $4, so now everyone else is running out to American Appereal to get similiar green pants for $74.

Blue, black or black pants (the three Bs) == Nobody notices

Red pants == everybody notices

Green pants == out of the ordinary, but not overly noticeable

Yup. I wish I'd kept those khaki twills after they were phased out, though.

SOMEONE WITH A PENIS MIGHT CARE ABOUT THEIR SARTORIAL PRESENTATION AND WANTS IT TO BE INTERESTING

PROBABLY THEY MUST LIKE OTHER PENISES BECAUSE THAT'S HOW IT WORKED IN CAVEMAN DAYS ALSO IN THE 50S

Pants full of macaroni!!: Green, hell - I'd like to know why the IT honcho at my workplace is wearing pants that are salmon pink.


He's a geek. Does he need a reason to wear salmon pink?

Check out the other IT guys. Are they all cute little guys? Are a disproportionate number of them kinda hot? Are there even sort-of-sexy females? If this is so, you are dealing with an IT Queen. IT Queens can be male or female or miscellaneous other (even asexual) but they surround themselves with worker IT guys who are adorable. This is not necessarily sexual--it is mostly a display of IT power. They have IT. IT is power. Power corrupts. IT power corrupts absolutely.

IT Queens may be extremely knowledgeable. They are probably high-functioning Autistic or simply sociopaths. They may have transferred the company's computers to servers running some obscure form of Linux without the permission or knowledge of their superiors. They are dangerous when not treated with proper respect and deference.

On the other hand, regular IT honchos can be totally random in their fashion sense and even look like an IT Queen without the authority or alpha male or female or other status.

I don't like to type-cast weirdos. They have a way of slithering through the pigeon holes like a weasel in a chicken coop. You won't hear that analogy in IT today.

I have pair of green pants that I got at UNICLO, had no idea it was some sort of trend, I just liked the color.

They are a similar shade of green cloth as the first green pants pictured.
 
2013-06-27 01:24:15 PM  
Oddly enough, after looking through the photos in that article, I can see myself wearing a pair of green shorts.

Oops, I meant Blue, Black or Brown.

That's probably it.  Our IT staff is just a bunch of regular joes.

Fire engine red blazers with white piping......and an uncontrollably bizarre urge to drop ping pong balls on a moose puppet.

lordargent: "Red pants == everybody notices Green pants == out of the ordinary, but not overly noticeable"

I have a peculiar pair of drunk-purchased pants that seem to vacillate between a rust red and a deep forest green, depending on the light.
I'm not entirely sure that should even be possible. Hence I've anthropomorphized them and mostly let them take the day off.

/ Thing is: I can't imagine why I would even want a pair of green OR red pants in the first place
// They may have stolen my credit card and purchased themselves

Just flashed on that.  Figured it was sort of relevant.

Colours this season for women: Green (mint and emerald), coral, royal blue.

I'm sure you'll see those colours in men's fashions as well, but maybe toned down.

/own emerald green pants.
//everyone loves them.
