What On Earth Is This?

Pinterest, for those who don't know, is a HUGE time sink. It is like looking at millions of other people's private scrapbooks only you get to peek too! At times its amazing what people post.

I stumbled on this the other day and am finally moved to say, well, something. I can't help but think what John Lennon is thinking about his wife's latest venture into clothing design. I mean, I can't think of a single man who would ever wear this except maybe at a costume party. Maybe that is the point. Then why even make it? Why even consider that this is appropriate men's wear unless you were going to a bacchanal?

However, to be fair, men designers do make some pretty outrageous designs that they expect women to wear. So maybe in her own way, she considers this and the rest of her new menswear line "turn about is fair play."

Men, ESPECIALLY men, are not used to being objects of attention or attraction. Six-packs, abs, hair removal are relatively recent  worries and they say that men getting cosmetic surgery is approaching 50% of all such surgeries. Kinda smacks of the fall of the Roman Empire doesn't it?

Guess I'm an old fuddy ruddy but you can rest assured I will never wear this or any of Yoko's designs.
