The Lower Half of the Pants, in Park Slope, Brooklyn

Street fair, Brooklyn
Photo by myself in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

They say New York is one of the fashion capitals of the world. I wouldn't say this is 100% true.

Above, an odd combination of boxer shorts and reverse cut-off jeans. I'm not sure who is wearing the upper half of her pants, or how her below-the-knee jeans stay up?

Anyway, scores of food vendors lined one of the major streets by Prospect Park, this weekend. Brooklyn was celebrating Gay Pride, as it does every year. The older parts of Brooklyn are very traditional, but overall, it's a rather open-minded borough.

I agree, I wouldn't say that is true of NY either!
but this is so funny. She must be joking, right? I mean, how can anyone walk around like that all day & keep a straight face?

Anna Wintour may not approve but it's still a fashion statement, intentionally or otherwise. :)

I sure hope this is one fashion fad that does NOT catch on. Reverse cut-offs? What's next? Guys/girls just wearing patches of denim on their skin instead of jeans with holes?

Thanks anyway for this fun post!!!

I think that's what I'll do with jeans that don't fit in the hips and bum anymore...I also found the expression on the guy behind the stand interesting. I'm not sure but I think he's looking around and wondering if he's the only one noticing she's missing the top part of her jeans. Great, great shot.
