It’s About to Get Real Peculiar up in Here
Fashion is weird. Fashion has always been weird. But just HOW weird can fashion get? How far will we go for the sake of fashion?

Also known as Trival Boots this ridiculous style supposedly originated in 2009 in North Central Mexico. Basically the longer your boots are (up to 5’, yes that is FIVE FEET of boots going past your toe) the more baller you are. Match with western shirts and skinny jeans, assert your dominance with 50 yards of leather boots and you just might win a bottle of whiskey. Or a home visit from PETA.
A thankfully short lived trend from the early 1910s of the west Hobble Skirts make you do exactly what they say, hobble because you are unable to walk. These skirts are so tight around the legs that they barely have any room to move and was first used as a way to keep from skirts blowing up in the wind by tying the demure lady’s skirt below the knee with a length of rope. These are now sported by the BDSM community and fashionistas that don’t care to move much at all.

Have you ever thought to yourself “why do girls get jeggings but guys don’t? I wish I could see Chris Evans’ booty against tight spandex too! This is what gender equality is all about!” well worry no more because meggings are here. Jeggings for men seeks to bring the battle of the sexes to an even playing field by making glorious glutes available for all to ogle. And if you feel they don’t draw enough attention to your herculean buns, they come in as many colors and styles as any ladies fashion runway. Metallic? Neon? Leopard print? They’ve got you covered. Tightly.
