By Nini Baseema in Cool Websites on Saturday 19 November 2011

Men wearing red pants: depending on your personal preference, it could be considered a highly individual statement or a severe fashion crime. Look At My Fucking Red Trousers has made it their life’s ambition to gather evidence for the existence of a color fad that’s currently going round London. I say, it’s not what you wear but how you carry yourself that makes the difference. Funny blog idea, though.

Zolton Contributor
