Cartoon Fashion Trends

Sometimes you stumble across the oddest things on the internet. I don't know where this was referenced, or why I bothered to look it up, but here it is:

In all its glory:

Naruto Uzumaki.

I know! I'm not into manga, or anime either, but for some reason, I stumbled across this character, and he totally grabbed my eyeballs and wouldn't let them go. I think it must be the incredible fashion sense he's obviously styling.

I'm really not a fan of the capri look on men. I'm just old fashioned like that. Manpris are not macho or attractive.

But, wait! you say. What if I pair them with peep-toe combat boots? Isn't that a look that just screams "I'm the biggest, baddest ninja around, and I'm going to beat you to a pulp!"

Umm. No. What it does say is "I would beat you to a pulp, but I just came from the salon, and my pedicure is still wet. But just wait! Once my nail polish is dry, I'm going to beat you to a pulp!"

Why peep-toe combat boots? Is Andre Leon Talley trying to be a stylist again?

According to the Wikipedia entry on Naruto, he is referred to as "Number One Loudest, Unpredictable, Hyperactive Knuckleheaded Ninja of Konoha." Knuckleheaded---ooooooh. That explains the boots.

Technically, if they're on a 12-year-old boy, they're "long shorts", not "capris".
