I would like to show these cropped Testoster Trousers from Henrik Vibskov to every douche menswear writer that espouses the “no pleats ever b/c pleats so ugly” line of bullshit we’ve been fed for past few decades. Pleats can be fire, you prescriptive shitbags. Stop all the hating. You hate because you have no imagination. You hate because you are incapable of fucking with the vision. I bet you’ve never even *read Four Pins once*. You probably don’t even know what the fuck I’m talking about right now. That’s alright. Disappointing, but alright. You might be distracted by all the outrageous and controversial events going on in politics right now and that’s totally understandable. I’m not going to get specific about those events, because I like to imagine that these blog posts are all evergreens. It’s not true, but I like to imagine it nonetheless. Let’s just get back to the great pleats debate, which is actually timeless: I am firmly in the “sometimes pleats, if done well” camp. You might want to disagree with that. You can’t. The evidence is right in front of you. These Vibskov trousers are immaculate. They’re everything I’ve ever liked on Instagram coalesced into a single garment. And they have pleats. Q.E.D, mon frère. Checkmate, mi hermano. Fuck a duck, veljeni. According to Google, that’s how you say “my brother” in Finnish. Such is the power of the internet. One minute I’m ranting about pleats, the next we’re all learning to speak Suomi. It’s important to learn new things. Keeps the mind sharp and the brain wet [Editor’s note: There is no documented correlation between education and brain moisture]. I like to learn a new tidbit of information every day, because if you’re not learning, you’re losing -- am I wrong, veljeni? -RB
