Whose Ombre Crochet Shorts Are These? Also: Why?

Sometimes I be minding my own business when I come across reasons to facepalm. Just look at the picture below and shake your head with me. Or maybe some of you wanna getchu a piece. I don’t know your life.

Crochet shorts

A pair of ombre crochet hot shorts for (what appears to be) a man. I don’t… understand any parts of it. This is not enough fashion and too much at the same time. Ombre. Crochet. Shorts.

Some of you learn a new trade and you want to show it off immejately. The person who did these just upgraded their craft from blanket-making so they came up with the idea of corts (crochet shorts). They didn’t even have the mind to make them bermuda length. These come mid-thigh for an extra ounce of sexy-flexy. I see it.

Plus, we must acknowledge the belt loops. He got the nerve to rock a leather belt with them too. Was rope busyThe leather just doesn’t go allaway with it.

And either they found a willing model or they decided to put it on themselves. I wonder where he wore them to. If it wasn’t a “Tacky Alphets Convention” then it probably wasn’t appropriate. Either way, these shorts should have never happened.

Whose crochet shorts are these? And also: why?

      RIGHT?!? Whoever made these shorts was trying to show off with the belt loops!! 🙂

      • May 23, 2014 at 11:49 am

        LOL. The belt loops were the extra OOMPH.

    Are you sure he didn’t borrow them from his wife?

    • May 23, 2014 at 11:48 am

      It don’t e’em matter where he got em. Someone made these. It might be him, for all we know.

    • May 25, 2014 at 7:07 am

      I think his wife had thrown it out and he just grabbed

      This whole comment had me crying. I am kind of hoping they went the extra mile by adding a button and a zipper. I say go big or go home…LOL

    The belt loops and the back pocket really took it over the edge for me….like that means this wasn’t just for a costume or an experiment…these were for real life going out somewhere. He’s like “Corts. For when it’s 100 degrees outside and you just need to breathe.”

    • May 23, 2014 at 11:49 am

      Yeah the back pockets did do a lot too. They just wanted to show off their talent.

    My question is why did he think it was a good idea to make the darkest, brownish part of the ombre on the butt crack?

    Can I just say I think it was a bad move to make the brown fall directly between his bum crackage? It just conjures up very non-pleasant mental images.

    • May 23, 2014 at 12:28 pm

      Well now I can’t stop scowling. Thanks for nothing.

  9. May 23, 2014 at 10:32 am

    I KNOW they have a hot crotch. It’s 90 degrees outside. This isn’t right. Boiled balls can’t be a pleasant scent. Hep.

    Ombre? You mean the dude wearing them, or the color ochre? Or amber?

    In TEARS you’re so damb funny!

    • May 23, 2014 at 11:17 am

      I mean “ombre.” It means something that goes from one color to another. It’s a gradient.

    Turn around. Let’s see the fronts. Button up fly? Personally, I’d go for a lace up, codpiece sort of dilly.

    • arma109
      May 23, 2014 at 3:52 pm

      I bet they lace up like a bustier with a nice silk ribbon. That would really set these off. Is there a matching crocheted cap? I have so many querstions.

    These shorts have me confused like Miss Sophia at the Christmas dinner table. I just don’t know how I feel about this, but it isn’t good.

    But… Can you imagine what nut-hugging foolishness is portrayed in the front? I am gleeful that we are only able to view these from the front, luvvie.

  23. May 24, 2014 at 2:18 pm

    Was rope busy? Rope made other plans immediately as soon as those came out of the…drawer? Hope chest? Fresh off the crochet hook? I don’t know about this garment.

    Luvvie, I came across your post a couple of days ago (I can’t even remember how or why now -does that matter?). I have to tell you and your nutty readers/followers/commenters have made my day. Nah, my year. Or, to paraphrase y’all, “you’ve gave me life”.
    Oh, I must explain myself: I am a white Latino (that is, not a native speaker of English nor living anywhere near an En-speaking country), so perhaps this should not appeal to me; but OMG I can’t begin to tell you the loads of stuff I’ve been learning. And what I read here is not even the variety of English I’ve studied! You’re all doing me a lot of harm… I’m not supposed to be learning this for my own sake, AND I have no-one to share it with.
    Simply thanks 🙂
