Thank you for posting the article yesterday. I have this to say about Easy Pants.
I wore a drawstring to the office too – when I taught meditation at a temple.
Am I the only one aghast at the notion, in this article and the other I cited, that men have put on pounds working from home and now, rather than do the healthy thing and lose the weight, are just gonna wear elastic waistbands?
No, I am not. Bill Burr is, as well. I transcribed this from his podcast yesterday:
“One of the worst things for this country, that has happened, in, in in I don’t know how many years, alright? Was when they started making jeans with the elastic waist. The waistband. Like, who is that helping? Back in the day, when you started to putting on a little weight, those f*@king jeans dug into ya and they left a f*@king red mark, borderline welt, okay? And you knew that you had one of two choices. You either started eating a f*@king salad or you had to start pushing those things (jeans) south. Now, I know a lot of the rappers and all that, get credit for that style, for wearing your pants down below your <deleted> but I’m here to tell you that there was a lot of fatties that did that first. Still can fit a 32 inch jean, you know? Just gotta push it down your f*@king body.”
Taking a personal day today but back tomorrow. With, I hope, a really cool new segment of the site for you. Dr. Claire – Marie Brisson and I are doing a compilation book of the best of the Ivy FB Group (WITH THEIR PERMISSION OF COURSE) and also members of this site and she will be featuring one a week. That’s not the new segment though. I think you are gonna like this.
All best – JB
