The Sissification of America Continues Apace

There is plenty of serious news today, but what is burning up Twitter? This:

Retailers are starting to push a new trend in menswear: the short suit.
The ensemble looks like a regular suit from the waist up, with a sport coat over a button-down shirt and sometimes a tie or bowtie. Instead of trousers, however, the suit’s bottoms are cropped at the knee. …

“It’s definitely having a moment, particularly with younger guys,” Jon Patrick, the creative director at menswear company J.Hilburn, told Businessweek.

God help us. And that isn’t even the worst of it. Barney’s is selling this unit, which it describes as a “short suit trimmed with chiffon panels.”

Because nothing screams masculinity like chiffon panels. If Putin sees this, we are doomed.
