#1868 A tale of sheer shirts and too-tight pants

Photos: Orange Foam Finger

About a year ago, I put a pair of super-skinny Raf Simons pants on lay-by at Zambesi, then went overseas and forgot all about them. While I was in Paris I got a phone call to say that I’d gone way over the allotted payment period, so the moment I arrived back in NZ I picked up the pants and paid the balance in full. I took them home and tried them on and came to the unfortunate realisation that they were far too tight. The next day I sheepishly exchanged them for a bunch of shirts, including this short sleeve sheer cotton voile beauty from the Spring/Summer 2010 collection. I wore it out for the first time today and now I’m quite pleased that the Raf pants were too tight. It’s my new favourite. I think the moral of the story is: every fat ass has a silver lining.

    I love the pants — perfect amt of tightness: anything more would have been bordering on hipster, any less would have been too plebian. good work!
