Mr. Cziltang’s guide to fashion, part 6

I see a lot of people every day. Some of them could use a bit of fashion advice: (Imagine a bullhorn…) THIS IS THE FASHION POLICE.  WE HAVE YOU SURROUNDED.  PUT DOWN THE SPANDEX AND SLOWLY STEP AWAY FROM THE CLOTHING RACK! Less than 5 % of you can actually wear spandex and look decent.  […]

I see a lot of people every day. Some of them could use a bit of fashion advice: If you’re over 6 years old and over 300 pounds, riding the electric shopping in your sock monkey jammies with the feet in them makes you look like the short bus forgot to pick you up for […]

I see a lot of people every day.  Some of them could use a bit of fashion advice: #4: If you are considering putting your hair up in that little ball on the top of your head (and especially if you plan to add the little headband as an accent), consider that contrary to your […]

I see a lot of people every day.  Some of them could use a bit of fashion advice: #3: If you are considering wearing one of those t-shirts with the huge cut-out armholes that go clear to your waist, consider the possibility that perhaps no one else wants to see your armpit hair, and they […]
