Saw this on poorlydressed.com and it made me giggle!

Oh genius.  I love it!  Even though I think untucked shirts usually look better (in a casual setting).


I have a blog.  I hate that word.

If your child snaps his fingers and say 'faaaaabulous' remove the lace immediately  >:D

Nope, that's when you let him start designing his own clothes!  Future Tim Gunn in the making!

I'd have to sew the lace on ALL shirts, tho, otherwise, he'd just wear the one t-shirt over and over and over again.

A long ago classmate in junior high made her own red dress and sewed white lace at the bottom of the hem, as a border.

I think maybe 100 people a day told her her slip was showing. :-\

Drawback:  The young man in question may not take that as a hint to tuck in his shirt, but rather, decide to forgo wearing a shirt altogether.

Oh goodness.  The kid is into camouflage everything right now.  He even has some of his dad's old uniforms (from before they pixilated the camo).  If I did that he would rip it off everything although it does make a rather amusing mental image.

Why are camouflage shirts/pants/hats pixellated now?  I never understood that.

Pixellation makes the clothing more effective as camouflage in some cases, by further breaking up the sharp edges of the patterns.

It's "urban" camo, for fighting around buildings and so forth, as opposed to the desert and jungle camo of previous wars.
 (DS loves camo, and last Christmas day he wore his favorite clothes...camo pants and a camo shirt. I did put my foot down before dinner. I told him he was not sitting down to Christmas dinner looking like he'd just come in from duck hunting.)

Since nightscopes and a lot of visual apparatus is now electronics-based, the pixilated camo prevents the watcher from actually seeing the shapes.  A square in a square doesn't jump out at you.  A circle will do that.  At least that's what DS said (he's in the army).
