“my belt holds my pants up, but the belt loops hold my belt up.

i don’t really know what’s happening down there. who is the real hero? // m. hedberg

i haven’t truly worn trousers since the fall of 2008.

i’ve worn pants, of course, but trousers or denim, be they straight or skinny? i’ve forgone the donning of britches for the better part of half a decade. no matter a fluctuating weight, or the size of hip; soft or svelte – bodily proportions just don’t seem to accommodate a pair of trousers the way they do for most. too long due to my being too short – the silhouette gets lost, and so do the cut of the leg. then, my being high on waist, most pairs bunch at the back, and pinch at the sides, and pull at the most inappropriate of places.

it’s a conundrum i just can’t abide by. and so, i appreciate them from a distance, pick out a dress – and persist on vicariously choosing out trousers for all those who can wear them. it’s not envy, it’s purely a knack.
