The stylish Ms. Bonnie from Glam Kittens Litter Box commented the other day about them and called them 'MAN PRIS'. The term is perfect - so from here on out - man capris will be referred to as MAN PRIS. Thanks Ms. Bonnie!
BAD NEWS though - this trend is NOT going away. If anything, it is growing in popularity as I have seen American men sporting the new style on base. (Not that soldiers are style icons by any means; but they bring thier style home to the states and its all DOWNHILL from there. Who do you think revolutioned 'Under Armour' clothing as suitable outfits? Or how about the dreaded HOODY and jean short combo?).
The GOOD NEWS is they can be worn in a stylish manner, so not all Man Pris are taboo. It will only be a matter of time before your guy BUSTS OUT his Old NAVY or Gap MAN PRIS. Don't say I didn't warn you.........
|I actually like this look. Very nautical, however you don't see very many people wearing flip flops so I'm wondering if he's American.|
|OK..... these aren't so bad either. Sort of a HIKER/GNOME sort of look. It works and looks better than the BORING alternate of a polo shirt and khaki shorts with white tennis shoes.|
|Total overkill with the aviation look. |
I'm not sure what the 'look' was supposed to be.....
|The HORROR. This is what should be banned. Acid washed PLUS shoes and socks. The only way these could be worse is if they were too tight or had front pleats. Or both.|
|Not technically Man Pris since he rolled them up, but I'll include it with this posting since it looks odd. Is that a women's shirt and jacket? The buttons are on the right.|
|Racks and racks of Man Pris are everywhere. |
See the red ones? Red is all of the rage right now for
jeans, skirts, shorts and leggings.
Ok ladies......so what do you think?
Do you like it? Hate it? Meh?
