Pants are too tight dance


Vancouver, the land of Stupid Male Fashion. This guy's outfit was way too tight, and several of us were treated to a show as he squirmed around a pole on the skytrain. I don't think he had a messenger bag but a beat-up old grandpa briefcase like every good hipster has. Or maybe both. Anyway, we had to give him a wide berth as he was really swingin' around that thing. I wish stuff I made up was nearly as funny as real life. Thanks for the inspiration and lowering your sperm count, buddy!

Skytrains are always a great source of inspiration. Unless you have to escort your mother on one.,,

Ha! Ha ha haaaa!! I don't know what a skytrain is (conjures up wonderful ideas of the fantastical tho), but the sketches are hillarious!
It's amusing what people will do for fashion.

Fun stuff!

I will be shot on sight, no questions asked, if I am ever seen wearing pants like those.

This really made me laugh! I think that even I never had to wear tight pants to this extent. (and i'm a girl)

Awsome poses. I think I'll set these as my wallpaper for a while ^.^
