A few weeks ago I went into Eddie Bauer and bought a pair of skinny cargo pants similar to this picture, except skinnier. I don't know why, but today I decided to wear the pants. I had no major painting projects planned at school, no messy science experiments...seemed like a good day to try out the pants.
The majority of the pants in my closet (except jeans) are from EB. I wear one or two particular styles (Vashon-old name replaced by Shaw). They are my go to everyday pants.
I put on the pants today and immediately noticed a difference. They were skinny. They fit like I was a teenage boy, except that my underwear wasn't hanging out the top, and they were crotch-y. You know that extra material at the crotch? I was pulling at my pants ALL day. Pulling UP the waist...pulling up the crotch...looking at my legs because the material touched them...it was creepy. People commented on my tick-ety-ness. Why would I buy these pants? To be hip? Are they in fashion? No. Shh...I'm cheap. They were on sale the other day for $10. Who can't use a pair of $10 pants? They seem to be all the rage! Skinny cargos? Isn't that an oxi-moron?
