It's been much too long since the last installment of Five Men's Fashion First Impressions, don't you think?
For those of you just joining us, FMFFI is a regular feature in which I ask the five men in my life for their first impressions of a strange fashion item. These impressions range from pegging top models as transsexuals to quoting Willow, and I always find them quite amusing.
Today's item: a striking pair of Jeffrey Campbell sandals, available at Urban Outfitters and first brought to my attention by Samida of Stained Couture:
Men! What say you?
Brother, Age 20: Oh man. Oh man. I don't like 'em at all. They look like hands, for one. They look like Shredder's gloves.
Father: All I can say is, Where's Spartacus when you need him?
Brother, Age 18: They look a little out of place without Sigourney Weaver shooting at them...
Boyfriend: (Laughs) They're horrible. Just horrible. They look like they're made of skin. Human skin.
Brother, Age 13: Hmm...It looks like human scalps. A pile of human scalps.
And there you have it: Solid proof that that Urban Outfitters is selling human scalps for 98 bucks. Really, what kind of world do we live in?
