Do you know how much I wish I could bike to work? The thought of just hopping on a two-wheeled non-gasoline powered conveyance and getting my butt to the office through the pumping of my own two legs absolutely thrills me. It’s like giving the oil companies the finger with the added bonus of exercise.
LaMont, our most favorite fashion editor ever, has a piece in today’s PG about the fashion dilemma that faces those bike commuters. He talks about a few ladies that shower when they get to work and then either carry their clothes on their bikes or leave clothes at the office to change into.
And he talks about this guy that works downtown at Verizon. Here he is in his biking gear, arriving at work, looking very Lance Armstrong-y, ready to take on the day and overcharge customers in grotesque fashion (well, at least that’s MY experience with Verizon).
Solid. Then LaMont tells us:
And after a quick change from his biking gear to business casual, Mr. Plowman is ready for another day of work at Verizon.
Let’s take a look at his business casual wear:
I’m sorry. Was that day Barbecue in Your Cubicle Day at Verizon? Or maybe it was Steve Irwin Appreciation Day?
I’m just sayin’. You know that LaMont Jones, he of the dapper hats and spats, is coming to your office to do a story about your after-biking fashion choices and that was the best you could do?
This is LaMont Jones, we’re talking about. The fashion icon.
F for effort.
