The ´Short Suit´ Is
Finally Going Mainstream

Business Insider, by Hayley Peterson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/10/2014 11:45:25 AM

Retailers are starting to push a new trend in menswear: the short suit. The ensemble looks like a regular suit from the waist up, with a sport coat over a button-down shirt and sometimes a tie or bowtie. Instead of trousers, however, the suit´s bottoms are cropped at the knee. J. Crew, Topman, Asos, and Barneys are among the retailers selling the short suit this season. They may be taking cues from fashion icon Pharrell Williams, who donned tuxedo shorts to the Academy Awards earlier this year. "It’s definitely having a moment, particularly with younger guys," Jon Patrick, the creative director at menswear

Comments:
And now for something not so serious. It is going mainstream? Seriously? I´m sure all of you men will run out and get this for summer. s/o What an epic fail. I can imagine all those stylish rappers wearing this with all their obnoxious bling. As noted in the article "fashion icon" Pharrell Williams donned tuxedo shorts to the Academy Awards earlier this year. Good. Grief.

I had one when I was six years old. I don´t want one now. A really stupid idea....knobby, hairy knees sticking out from an otherwise dress-up outfit.

I seem to remember that this was tried many years ago (50-60) but my memory may be failing me. As I recall, it didn´t go anywhere then either.

How much did those models get for appearing in that getup?

Mens´ business attire has been relatively unchanged for 100 years. Lapels, buttons, vents, etc, but no serious man would wear these.

Oh how original. Not. I can recollect my Mom putting me in this Bermuda-style getup in the sixties. I think the Brits still do it on the island and let them. I still wear, when able, my button down with a collar pin. Very Boston!

I hope the designers invest all they can borrow from the loan sharks on this idea. Even if Barry, Rahm, George Clooney and Rachel Maddow all swap out their long-pants suits for the new fashion, nobody else is going to abandon their self respect for it.

Hilarious. About 100 years ago, boys were in "short pants" until they got old enough to wear real suits, and donning full-length trousers was a much sought-after sign of maturity.

Now you have full-grown men doing the opposite.

Also, about 100 years ago when the Titanic sank, women and children were saved first before men got into lifeboats. Only a few years ago there was a cruise ship disaster in which men bullied their way to boats first.

It really doesn´t look good for our culture.

That was children´s wear 100 years ago. Back then, the boys couldn´t wait to be able to wear long pants like grown-ups.

I guess it is appropriate now since today adults all seem to be like immature children anymore as opposed to 100 years ago when children grew and matured quickly and took on responsibilities early on.

Yesterday = everyone was an adult and took care of themselves

Today = everyone is a child needing a nanny

A man´s dress jacket is only good for the pockets. Cold in the winter; hot in the summer. The inventor of the necktie should be dug up and defiled, as his legacy has done to men for generation after generation. If we must "dress up," bring back something sensible like the Nehru Jacket.

Virtually every key House Republican, from Speaker John Boehner on down, has vowed to oppose a conference committee with the Senate´s immigration bill passed last year. And lawmakers working to craft legislation to address the tens of thousands of children streaming across the southern U.S. border say it won´t touch citizenship for illegal aliens, increased visas, or any other topics than border security. But a key veteran of the immigration wars on Capitol Hill is warning that legislation to amend a 2008 law being cited for cumbersome, years-long deportations would theoretically open the door to a conference committee on the controversial

HOUSTON, Texas--Despite the border crisis that involves more than 1,000 illegal immigrants entering the country each day, Texas Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee apparently believes the U.S.-Mexico border is "under control." On MSNBC she recently said, "I disagree it is in devastating condition. I think with now 21,000 border patrol agents it is under control." She added that Border Patrol agents told her that "they are able to do their job, even though they had been called into service to change diapers and make formula."

President Obama’s defiant emphasis on executive action reveals a larger failure looming for his legacy: His inability to work with Republicans means that he’s unlikely to score even one significant legislative achievement over the final years of his presidency. Unless Democrats win back the House and hold onto the Senate in November, a scenario dismissed by most political analysts, Mr. Obama has said goodbye long ago to his biggest accomplishments in Congress. They occurred back in 2010, when Democrats controlled the House and Senate, and Mr. Obama signed into law Obamacare, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform act and a two-year extension

A prominent law professor and avowed supporter of the Obama White House will tell the House on Wednesday that the president has created one of the biggest constitutional crises in the country’s history and will endorse House Republicans’ effort to sue to rein him in. Jonathan Turley, a professor at George Washington University, will say President Obama is trampling the founders’ vision for the country in his push to circumvent Congress, and he will demand Republicans and Democrats alike forget their party labels to unify against this White House’s power grab. “What we are witnessing today is one of the

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., on Tuesday blamed last October´s government shutdown on Republicans wanting to deny women access to birth control. No really. Warren said this on the Senate floor while defending the Democrats´ deceptively titled “Women´s Health Protection Act.” “Remember last year´s government shutdown that nearly tanked our economy?” Warren asked. “That fight started with a GOP effort to hold the whole operation of the federal government hostage in order to try to force Democrats and the president to let employers deny workers access to birth control.” Um, no, sorry. The government shutdown occurred over a continuing resolution to fund the government

News 12 New Jersey reporter Sean Bergin has reportedly been suspended for comments he made on-the-air Sunday evening about the black community. After reporting on a suspect in the fatal shooting of Jersey City police officer Melvin Santiago, Bergin told his viewers that News 12 was “besieged” with phone calls from police officials “furious that we would give media coverage to the life of a cop killer.” Those complaints were “understandable,” Bergin said. “We decided to air it because it’s important to shine a light on the anti-cop mentality that has so contaminated America’s inner cities.” He then made the

Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer isn’t so sure Democratic Sen. Harry Reid is on his medication. Krauthammer speculated on Reid’s mental health on “Special Report with Bret Baier” Tuesday night. The panel, including Baier and Fox News contributor Mara Liasson, was discussing the influx of illegal immigrants — mostly women and children — flooding over the southern border. Liasson explained that President Obama has always said he “wanted the flexibility to treat kids from Central America the same as Mexico” but never explicitly asked Congress to change the Bush-era 2008 sex trafficking law. “He wanted Congress to go first,” she said.

WICHITA, Kan. — Moderate Republicans have been kicked around by the tea party for years in Congress and the states. Here in Kansas, they’re fighting back. A moderate GOP uprising is in full swing against Gov. Sam Brownback, the fierce fiscal and social conservative whose policies led to a purge of middle-of-the-road Republicans from the legislature early in his tenure. In a rare and surprising act of political defiance on Tuesday, more than 100 Republicans, including current and former officeholders, endorsed Brownback’s opponent, statehouse Democratic leader Paul Davis. Polls show the challenger with a surprisingly strong shot at taking out

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book.
