Fashion Intervention

Surely we can’t find fault with one of the handsomest men in Blogsville.

But yes, we’re pointing the finger at our friend Donn




Oh sure, he looks fine in the photo above (and obviously he knows how to accessorize!) but have you seen this? …




IT’S TIME FOR A FASHION INTERVENTION!

It’s our duty to pull Donn aside and critique the contents of his closet.

Go ahead. Tell Donn what he needs to do to improve his image before he’s captured by the “What Not To Wear” brigade.

If you’re so style-impaired that you can’t see the most obvious fashion crime Donn’s committed, we refer you to this post for a clue.

  5. Stop bleating about what people are wearing. You are so superficial. Be grateful that he is wearing something this time. I still can't sleep at night.

    SAVANNAH: fashion? i sneer at fashion, sugar!

    Call it a STYLE INTERVENTION then.

    Just get those damn things off his feet!

    Why don’t you do something about your hair, dammit?

  7. Clearly, he should've bought the yellow ones to match his shirt.

  8. I'm more worried about the training wheels.

  9. He lied to us! Lied to us!

    He said he only wore it for Pride but look!

    The ghastly yellow polo made another trip out of the closet. I wish his wife would burn that thing already.

    Donnn is a lovely man, he looks lovely but that polo is not doing him any favours. Bless.

    Either that yellow shirt goes or I do!

    BOXER: I'm more worried about the training wheels.

    Yet the training wheels are keeping him upright.

    There are so many things here that Elmer would disapprove of.

    We were appalled to see that yellow shirt make another appearance.

    Yet perhaps we’re judging Donn too hastily.

    Could it be that the recession has hit him hard and that’s the only item of clothing in his closet?

  11. Well, I think those well ventilated plastic clogs would look just fine....as a codpiece perhaps.

  12. I did warn Mr Coppens about this hideous fashion mistake.
    He needs to discover Converse.

  13. Why isn't he wearing Lycra cycling shorts?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Obviously he should have teamed the shirt with a different coloured bike - or worn more accessories - I'd like to see him in one of those jester hats

  15. JASON: Well, I think those well ventilated plastic clogs would look just fine....as a codpiece perhaps.

    An excellent suggestion.

    The hard plastic may also offer the protection of a cup yet provide air to circulate on those hot Winnipeg summer afternoons.

    Just get them off his feet!

    Shall we go to his house en masse?

    We could do so after we’ve whipped ‘round to Beast’s house to give Beast an atomic wedgie.

    KAZ: Why isn't he wearing Lycra cycling shorts?

    Donn knows we laydeez could not deal with the sight of his monstrous bulge.

    LULU: Obviously he should have teamed the shirt with a different coloured bike - or worn more accessories - I'd like to see him in one of those jester hats

    Ack! We never want to see another jester hat or Dr. Seuss hat!

  16. Crocs- a major fashion faux pas any way you slice it. Sorry dude.

  17. Yellow! no red face caucasian should ever wear yellow. Unless you are black don't wear yellow. As for the Crocs....

    Should we start a petition?

    The only benefit to wearing yellow is that you wouldn’t notice the pee stains.

  19. RANDOM: Only gay people wear crocks.

    No gay I know would be caught dead in Crocs!

    Lesbians, on the other hand...

  20. O M G!!!
    Would you believe that I "borrowed" them for the photo session?

    Would you believe that they came with the bike?

    Would you believe that they are as comfy as hell and they are so easy to slip on and off and the big holes let lots of air blow through and the little bumps on the sole make my feet happy and I LOVE THEM!!
    There dammit I said it!

    Anyway wth, I never wear them out of the yard, honest, my good-lady-wife will not permit it :)

    You’ll be absolved if you say ten Hail Marys, ten Our Fathers and finger my rosary.

    We shall arrange to have her toss them to the curb when your back is turned.

    There dammit I said it!

  23. Oh gods! I look like a fashion genius compared to this. And that's while wearing my orange T-shirt!

    Cockage, yes.

    Crockage, no.

    You do realize, don’t you, that Miss Scarlet and I are on our way over to give you a wedgie?

    IVD: Oh gods! I look like a fashion genius compared to this. And that's while wearing my orange T-shirt!

    Who would have thought it possible?!

  25. I don't know what the problem is. You're always showing pairs of old crocs hard at it on this blog.

  27. Well as with most things, when in doubt don't wear it.

    I'd say he should go naked.

    Personally I'd rather go naked than wear yellow. Why didn't anyone start that campaign?

    Perhaps you could volunteer to be Donn’s personal valet.

    Do NOT fall for it, people!

    Why don’t we distract Donn with a big pair of floppy clown shoes?

    Over here Donn…

    Try on the clown shoes.

  32. Never mind the crocks, I'm more concerned about the quality of the chopper between his legs.

    I’m thinking it could use a lube job.

    But if cared for properly, I’m sure it would give years of faithful service.

  34. Oh oh I just noticed the Crocs!

    I put a pox on the Crocs!

    Now I can't decide if the yellow or the Crocs are the worst offence.

    I do know, that I'd love to be his valet though. Donnnn?

    You were blinded to the Crocs by the yellow, you poor thing.

    You know it’s bad if YOU miss a bad shoe sighting.

  36. I would suggest that he got dressed in the dark, except that yellow shirt probably glows.

    Maybe Donn's afraid of the dark, and thought a bike ride would recharge it?

    I'm going to have to have a session with my life-coach about the crocs though. I have nightmares about them still.
