sagging shorts styleOne commonality parents have across the nation is how much they detest when their sons walk out of the house with their pants half way down their thighs, belted and exposing their boxer shorts (or briefs).

Described as classless and trashy, yet trendy and hip, many schools have strict dress codes that prohibit the style.

But in Tennessee, 45-year-old Kenneth Bonds, decided to take matters into his own hands, giving an almost too dangerous literal meaning to the phrase “if looks could kill.”

Heidi Medina, the cheerleading captain for Bridgeport Central High School, went before the Bridgeport Board of Education to protest the team’s midriff-bearing uniforms.

“It really hurts our self-esteem,” said Ariana Mesaros. “I am embarrassed to stand up here dressed like this. Is this really how you want Bridgeport to be represented?”

Most of the time, an interview is a first encounter with a businessperson. This is why it is important to reflect the dress code of the office with the attire you choose on your fateful day.

Here are a few of my favorite excerpts:

“It goes without saying that you should try to meet as many people as you can, because it’ll never again be as easy as stumbling up to someone at a party and saying “Is this the line for the bathroom?” Read the rest of this entry »

Pants Optional for University of Oregon’s Frisbee Team

frisbeeIn the world of sports, there are rules to be followed.  These rules determine the playing surface, outline scoring methods, and even describe suitable uniforms. These rules are followed to allow for participation in a sporting event.

During a match at Oregon State University in Corvallis, five members of the University of Oregon’s team decided playing without pants or underwear would be a good decision. The ultimate Frisbee team was on probation at the time for actions involving underage drinking and noise violations toward the end of 2008. Read the rest of this entry »
