Because the real Thursday Styles is pathetic.

The New York Times‘s Style section is probably the worst part about any given Thursday. I’m not the only one who feels this way. Their “editors” have inexplicable enthusiasm for the the silliest, most obvious things (ties are in! No money for Botox!) and a serious knack for forecasting trends you never, ever hear about again (people will accessorize with band-aids! Face Yoga!). Look at today’s main story for example: Robot Clothes!

From the Times:

The futuristic look of yesteryear is everywhere you turn, from the catwalks to the big screen and beyond…

Except no, it’s not. You know where people aren’t wearing metallic unitards and “steely man-cuffs”? IN REAL LIFE. Ugh! A much better article would have been why robots dress like Amish women.

    molly, i agree with you. THAT SAID, i probably would wear that blue sequinny number with the shoulder points toned down just a bit.
    also, i love laura stone (model pictured in blue sequinny number). she is considered a ‘curvy’ model because she has tatas the size of texas, although one of her pant legs wouldn’t fit over my forearm. sigh.

    How about a piece on Fashion Darwinism where skinny jeans aka MANDEX render men impotent thus successfully eliminating a whole douchebag sector of fashionistas?

    […] What will happen to the AP?  What content will stupid bloggers link to?  WHAT WILL WE DO WITHOUT THE STYLE SECTION?!  Others, like Jack Shafer and the rest of the U.S. population, could care […]

Go ahead, say it.
