dear burda style,

Normally, you're pretty great. Lots of good stuff going on at all times. Gets my crafty heart all a flutter.

But.

What in the $&%*(*!)# were you thinking with this male swimsuit shoot?

I was all excited to check out a swim trunk tutorial since the subject said something about, "when was the last time you sewed something for the men in your life?... etc.". And I thought, "AH HA! Fathers Day! Wouldn't that be awesome!"

And

then

I

clicked

on the

link

and saw

THIS:



I can't decide if the shoes (?!) or the poses are more ridiculous.

I just laughed and laughed and laughed.

I can see some trendy little surfer boys around here making those shorts work out okay (even though the length and fluff of them are ugly as sin), but

the shoes (?!)

and

the poses.

Really?

I can't think of any of the men in my life to sew for when I look at those.

But it made me laugh so that's cool.

Awesome.

Carry on,

Stephanie

Ok call me insane, but if worn with pants, I swear those shoes wouldn't be that bad.

Those poses however.... And it's such a contradiction, because generally the kind of man who would pose like that would NOT be caught dead in those shorts. Too funny! And i've never been to Burda style so thanks for the link!
