Can’t Touch This

Manolo says, in this week’s fashion news, the return of the bicycle shorts and the drop-crotch pants.

Drop-crotch pants and bicycle shorts?

This can only mean one thing…

Hammertime!

    Have we learned nothing from our past mistakes?

    But they’re better now! The bike pants are see-thru and the harem pants aren’t gold lame. Maybe those designers thought no one would notice.

    As my teenager says, “you pooped your pants pants”.

    Oh, heavens no. It is *never* Hammertime.

    Not trying to being catty or anything but I am about to be catty.

    The model on the left is bit knocked knee with jugged ears sticking out through her long straight hair combined with peek-a-boo bicycle shorts … well it is not a look I will be translating into to my everyday fashion.

    Maybe you CAN’T touch this, but the question is, would you want to?

    The Manolo is spot on in his prediction of the return of MC Hammer! I’m studying Mayan in Jo’ (Mérida) and the dj here played “U Can’t Touch This” last Saturday night. I believe the song is more fun than the fashion, though.

    I saw hammer pants like that at a bar last night, only they were cheetah print and appeared to have five-inch elastic sequined cuffs. Also her friend was wearing acid-wash skinny jeans.
