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.

This is what the “short suit” looks like:

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.
