How preposterous! There's nowhere to store the family jewels!

So, this weekend I was going to start my new plan of taking the weekends off and coming back strong on Monday. But then I saw these:

I never thought I'd be scanning the sale items at Shopbop.com and find myself thinking, "These would really be a much better value if they came with a codpiece. Perhaps those are sold separately?"

And if you don't know what a codpiece is, you can come over and ask my dad like my group of friends and I did when we were 15 and studying Romeo & Juliet, and be horrified at the completeness of his answer.

Wow, the person this would be most flattering on is...uh, no one. I don't think even one of the Olsen's would try to pull this off.

I sort of like them because they are so wrong.

i've been dying for these shorts since the summer!! i think they are super cute, despite the lack of room for storing the family jewels.

agh! my eyes! those shorts! lol...

I agree - a codpiece, and some colored hose, and those shoes with the long pointy tips that curl back up and are chained to the wearer's shins.

you know what I mean. party like it's 1399.
