Jeans “symptomatic of deep disorders in the national psyche.”

Don’ wear jeans. Or do. This op-ed in the Washington Post really doesn’t like jeans.
UPDATE: even more well known news papers are not down with denim.

  1. “I can only hope the Obama administration sees denim for what it is: a ghastly but potentially lucrative source of much-needed revenue. Let’s waste no time in imposing a hefty sumptuary tax on the stuff. It’s a great example of “soft paternalism” (especially if the pants are pre-washed). We can close the budget deficit at the same time we eradicate the fashion deficit. All we’ve got to do is impose a federal levy on Levi’s.”

    “Denim is the SUV of fabrics, the wardrobe equivalent of driving a hulking Land Rover to the Whole Foods Market.”

    “it is in denim that we invest our most nostalgic and destructive agrarian longings -”

    This has got to be a joke.

  2. Also, I’m getting sick of these Dear President Obama letters that are written about everything that is not political. This is maybe the tenth I’ve seen.

    “I’m hoping the new administration does something about dog farts. It’s a real problem this nation has to face and it’ll be a welcome change from the last administration.”

    Fuck you.

  3. The first one was real (pretty sure) and, yeah, i think the second one was a joke sort of attacking the first one.

  4. but the first one quotes the second im confused

  5. right, i switched that all up in my head. i guess i just mean that the first one sounds much more angry.
