Trouser Break

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo asks, how high must the platform shoes be before the pants actually fit?

    If he had the red handlebar shoe hat on it would help distract form the pants and high heels on the heel.

  2. Ronikins Says:

    maybe he’s hiding weapons of mass destruction in his socks.

  3. Todd Says:

    How high must the platforms be? higher than the hair!

  4. Tiberia Says:

    I always think that grey get up makes him look like an auto mechanic….

  5. Kourtney Says:

    OMG, is he wearing Versace sunglasses? The same ones that Paris Hilton has?

    They are going to be soooo embarrassed at the next red carpet nuclear bomb – imagine – having the same sunglasses…

    Looks like someone blew their fashion budget on black market plutonium!

    He’s dressing for comfort in the fallout shelter.

    Sky high!

  9. VeddyVeddyBadAng Says:

    It almost seems wrong to laugh at him, knowing that he’s also crazy and dangerous.

    But somehow, I can’t stop laughing at his ridonkulousness.

    “Ronery. I’m so … ronery.”

    Hahahahahahaha! The aimlessjoys views the photos of the generous break of the pantses, then the courteously-supplied video link and chortles w/uneasy glee. I think the shoes of the North Korean Top Guy would look better with a flamenco dancing suit. Hahahahahaha!

  11. Amy Says:

    He should ask Tom Cruise – he would know.

  12. e Says:

    Let’s not forget the pleats, they’re interfering with the fit as well.

  13. jjo Says:

    Why do men never wear stillettos?

  14. nanflan Says:

    The sad thing is, so many people don’t know that the pants are too long and would see nothing wrong with the trousers. He’s the dictator of an entire nation, you’d think he could conscript a decent tailor.

  15. AskMom Says:

    I’m with Nanflan. Surely somewhere in the swarming masses is a person who could reduce the breaks to the proper half inch in return for a few bowls of rice.

    But then, caring about appearances is so……free world.

  16. Jenzilla Says:

    Obviously the pants are hiding the high heels.

  17. Jessica Says:

    Nanflan: don’t give The Littlest Dictator any ideas.

  18. Don S Says:

    So what is this? The finals of the North Korea Douglas MacArthur look-alike contest?

  19. Gorgeous Things Says:

    The Kim Jong Il looks to me like he stuck his finger in a light socket – I have seen hairdos in Revere, MA that are lower than that.

    Instead of the lifts, maybe we could send the folks at Balco to N. Korea to supply him with HGH. That would kill several birds with a single stone.
