These Jeans Are Also a Picnic Table

Picnicking's a quaint, lovely afternoon activity for people who toss their head back when they laugh and keep bottles of rosé perma-chilling in their fridge between wheels of exotic $20 cheeses. (See: romantic comedy stars, Gwyneth Paltrow.)

But it's also a surefire way to smear jam or dribble drinks on whatever blanket or towel you're sitting on—a minor, non-glamorous detail that's seemingly insignificant, until you go and invent picnic table jeans, like this Acquacalda company.


pants
I'm pretty sure they're supposed to fall into the high-tech, multi-purpose fashion category (pants that purify the air, glasses that text your friends). Yet they don't make sense to me. I get that they serve as jeans before you sit down and a table right as you sit down. But the second food or drinks spill on that table-pouch-lap-thing, you don't have high-tech "Picnic Jeans!" anymore. You just have a dirty napkin sewn in between your pant legs.

That's not exactly ideal for running errands, so I'd imagine the multi-functional excitment ends there. And I'm not even gonna address the, uh, interesting way they look. But maybe I'm just biased since my tolerance for multi-purpose fashion starts and ends with reversible string bikinis. I don't know. Would you wear them?

Stupid, the jeans don't turn into a picnic table you do. Who wants to sit like that and start placing things in their lap thereby restricting movement. when you can just set things next to you in a pinch.

    11 style rules to break right now

    You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.

    Cool wedding beauty ideas

    It’s time for bridal beauty to loosen up. Hair doesn’t have to be tightly wound, makeup perfectly contoured, and nails French manicured (on this last point, really, please don’t). You can, in fact, look gorgeously and timelessly cool at your wedding. Here’s how.
