Insert Eye Roll Here

One of my favorite things about the internet is the shopping. While I mostly browse, I sometimes buy. But when I cruise the 'net (I know people don't really say that - except maybe people who still use flip phones, though they probably still think you "log on"), I can't help but stop and get all shouty when I see things like this.
SERIOUSLY, J.CREW?

The 9" Stanton short in hashtag.

The details:
Our casual weather-beaten short is every guy's go-to for summer. This pair is printed with hashtags (or as we used to call them back in the day, "pound signs") and dyed with real indigo (#willfadewithage).
Ugh.

If you're calling a hashtag a pound sign, these are NOT the shorts for you.

But let's take a closer look at the shorts.
They're not super hashtag-y and in your face. They're subtle. But only one size is sold out. And the overpriced shorts have been marked down from $69.50 to $49.99. It seems like there are a few sensible guys out there who aren't leaping at the chance to have their own hashtag created. Suggestions:

  • #jcrewtakesadvantageofhipsters
  • #hashtaginmyshorts
  • #poundsignmyshorts
  • #superdouche
I can only hope that the sales of these shorts have been to guys who are planning their Halloween costumes. You know, ironic hipster in social media attire. For the selfie. Because wearing these in real life is totally a junk punchable offense. Look it up.
