Oh, LaMont

LaMont “That’s big L, small A, big M” Jones, the fashion editor at the PG, and fodder here at the Burgh Blog, wrote his style wish list for 2007.In addition to wishes such as women wearing makeup all the time and women wearing pearls instead of diamonds, he wishes:

I wish that Americans, especially men, would stop running from color.

His choice for what you boys SHOULD be wearing in the new year?

Oooooh, baby.

Puce pants, shoes my grandpa used to wear, a shirt I’m pretty sure came from Debbie Gibson’s Electric Youth video, and a wrinkled blazer with rolled up sleeves?  If you boys start dressing like this you can only blame yourselves when random women start walking up to you, ripping their clothes off and screaming, “Take me.  Take me now!”

Actually, if I saw a man walking down the streets of the Burgh wearing this exact outfit, swear to God, I’d probably look for the cup in which to deposit my loose change.  Poor fella.

    Don Johnson does not live in Florida, he’s alive and well and working in the fashion dept at the PG.

    Um…we have someone RIGHT here in River City, er, GREENSBURG, who, um, dresses like that pretty much every.single.day. In fact, I think he’d make LaMont feel like he’d died and gone to fuschia pant heaven.
