Breaking my heart all over again…
Breaking my heart all over again…
what we REALLY should be talking about is WHY THE FUCK DO THEY LET JAFAR ADVISE THE SULTAN.
Like EVERY OTHER OBVIOUSLY EVIL VILLAIN GETS CALLED OUT ON THEIR SHIT IMMEDIATELY. Ursula? Scar? They’re banished before the movie even starts. Same thing with Oogie Boogie. Captain Hook? Everyone knows he’s an evil pirate. Maleficent? Why do you think they didn’t invite her to the party?
Jafar has to be THE most instantly recognizably evil villain of all of them—he’s all spindly, he’s got the crazy eyebrows, the twisty beard, and his voice fluctuates like whAT, and yet no one’s ever like “oh hey you know what this dude’s a little suspicious maybe he shouldn’t be advISING OUR FUCKING SULTANNN.”
SERIOUSLY. How many people are in this palace, anyways? Because you’d think a palace would have, idk, a COUPLE HUNDRED PEOPLE OR SO?? Or how about the WHOLE FUCKING KINGDOM? You’re telling me NO ONE at ANY POINT saw this INCREDIBLY SUSPICIOUS DUDE HOLDING A SNAKE STAFF IN FRONT OF THEIR KING’S FACE AND OVERTLY WHISPERING THINGS IN HIS EAR AND THOUGHT “WELL HEY NOW THIS SEEMS LIKE IT COULD BE A CORRUPTION OF OUR GOVERNMENTAL SYSTEM”
FUCK THIS FUCKING MOVIE EVERY TIME I REMEMBER THIS I JUST FUCKING AAGGHHHH WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE HE’S SO OBVIOUSLY EVIL I JUST I CAN’T.
#i ranted about this for literally hours once on shrooms #that was a weird night #AND IT RESOLVED NOTHING BECAUSE I’M STILL FUCKING PISSED ABOUT THIS #and don’t tell me it’s because he can hypnotize people #i’m sorry that snake thing is clearly a one-at-a-time kinda deal don’t even #jafar #aladdin #disney #FUCK
hahahaha holy shit i snorted
Oh shit, I totally just died from this.
The official U.S. trailer for The Rabbi’s Cat.
Who wants to go see this with me over Winter Break?
I’m looking especially at you two, Dewey and Rupert. NYC trip and going to see this? Brilliant idea.
She is…Oh my god…
And THAT DRESS!
Same. Same. Same.
I chugged down a Gin drink after it was all said and done…
Probably the fasted that I have ever downed a drink, because I much prefer to savour them…So that says a lot.

reason why i’m tired of supernatural
- also, tumblr
- having to listen to each character batman growl their way through all the dialogue
- aNgStY bOiZ
- every time i turn around and look at megan’s screen someone is making this face >:|
- x-files is cooler
Man, I hated what they did to Castiel after his first appearance. He went from being a total fucking badass(Who didn’t even have to growl like the other fuckers or anything because he was that awesome and could kill that many fuckers if he wished) to a bad, bad joke.
any time someone starts talking about supernatural all i hear are the sounds of someone masturbating
See, this is the kind of “support” I get at home.
Supernatural has 100% less shoulder pads, so your X Files argument is invalid.
How Pants Should Fit
It’s much easier to get trousers to fit well than jackets. There’s also less wiggle room for interpretation. While there are different schools of thought on how a jacket should fit, trousers should only fit one way. There shouldn’t be any puckering or pulling along the seat, waist, fronts, or back, and there shouldn’t be any ripples along the legs. Instead, there should be a completely uninterrupted line going from the top to the bottom, both along the front and back of the trousers. If there is a break, the maximum number is one, and if there are pleats, they should remain closed at all times. Regardless of their style (slim, tapered, straight legged, full, etc), these points should remain true for any classic pair of men’s trousers.
Though it’s easier to find well fitting pants, that doesn’t mean it’s always accomplished. Most men’s trousers suffer from any number of problems. Above is a color photograph that shows how a pair of well fitting pants should look. Below that are a number of black and white diagrams posted by Tutee on StyleForum, each of which demonstrate some common defects. If you click on the diagrams, they’ll expand and you’ll see that they’re lettered.
- Fig A. Roping Along Seat Seam: Here there’s tightness in the seat seam, which is drawn tautly up the center. Vertical folds thus appear.
- Fig B. Diagonal Creases from Fork to Side Seam: This is more often than not something you see on corpulent or semi-corpulent figures. The defect unfortunately emphasizes the contour of the wearer’s stomach, which is of course the last thing a stout gentleman would want.
- Fig C. Vertical Folds at the Fork: The fork is the area of your body that joins your legs to the trunk. Here, folds of excessive material are seen around the fork, and they run towards the inside of the leg.
- Fig D. Excess Material in the Lap: This was made into a pretty funny scene on Curb Your Enthusiasm. Obviously, there will always be a certain amount of excess material in the lap when the wearer is seated. This is what allows your pants to fit well when you’re standing up. However, if there is too much material, it should be considered a defect (note: I’ve found zippered flys to be worse offenders than buttons in these cases).
- Fig E. “Horseshoe” Folds: Perhaps the most common defect is when excessive material folds near the fork, around the seat of the pants. There may also be diagonal drags running down the inside of the leg.
- Fig. F. Fullness Under the Seat: Similar to Figure E, there can also be excessive material under the ball of the seat. This material can sag away from the wearer.
- Fig. G. Drags from Fork to Knee: Here, when the wearer is seated, creases extend from the knees back towards the fork (again, where the leg joins the trunk of your body). There is also a slight pull from the knee bone to the back of the leg.
- Fig H. Horizontal Creases at the Fork: This can occur either in the front or the back. Tutee notes that this is also common in old trousers, especially ones that haven’t been pressed or re-shaped occasionally.
A number of things that can cause these defects. The seat angle might be too low or high; there could be insufficient or too much room in the trunk or fork; the leg seams can be too open or closed; or the legs can be placed incorrectly from the fork.
There are remedies, but many of them involve details that are only of interest to tailors and those who commission bespoke clothing. For most people, whether some of these are fixable through an alterations tailor depends on what exactly is causing the problem. For example, if there is fullness in the seat, there could be just excess material. In this case, if it’s not too much material, a tailor can most likely take it in. If it’s a result of an incorrect seat-angle, however, this will be much more difficult.
So what can you take away?
- Well first, you should use the color photograph above as a model for how trousers should fit. Perhaps you like them skinnier or fuller, or you like to wear belts instead of braces. Either way, you can see here what it means to have “clean lines.”
- Second, keep the diagrams in mind so you know what to look for when trying on pants. As with almost all off-the-rack clothing, it’s nearly impossible to get something to fit 100% perfectly, so expect that there will be issues. You just want to minimize the defects.
- Third, if a pair of trousers doesn’t fit, your best bet is to try on either the size above or below, and see if the problems aren’t remedied. Notice here that almost all the problems occur between the waist and the thigh. Buy pants that fit you best in these areas. Most of the time, you’ll be able to alter the waistband and calves. If the trousers still don’t fit after you change sizes, that specific cut simply doesn’t fit you, so move on.
And that’s how pants should fit.
