RIP Black Dress Pants

RIP Black Dress Pants



[Soundtrack: AC/DC - "Caught With Your Pants Down"]

I’m not a fashion expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I have gone through enough evacuation drills that typically went along the lines of “Holy shit I just woke up and I have 20 minutes to get to work and I gotta look sharp and I slept in again despite the fact that I have a half dozen alarms blowing the roof off my house and I need something quick to get me through this fiasco” to know that there are certain pieces of my wardrobe that are my go to pieces of gear when desperate times come a callin’.

I also know that my favorite black dress pants died a horrible death today. The pants bit the dust after I did my best Johnny Bench impression while saying hello to Bo during my lunch break. Bad News Bears. I really don’t know how it actually happened because these pants were to my knowledge indestructible. They never got dirty. They never wrinkled. I could roll them up in a ball and throw them in the corner of my room and pick them up 2 weeks later and they would be flawless. The pants even had a stretch band thingy built into the waist in case I gained an extra 50 pounds. They would accommodate the extra waist line. But apparently not today. RIP black dress pants.
