Please, capri pants are ugly!!!!

If you women promise not to wear them, I promise not to wear Speedos. O.K.?

Regards,

There seems to be a common thread here. Men DO NOT care for capris. I had no idea. So, men, what is it exactly that you don't like?

signed, a capri lover

Capri pants certainly look ALOT better on me than shorts!! ! --i actually wear either long shorts, skorts or capris--practically living in them in the summer!!!! I, like another poster am a size plus lady and would much rather not have my ugly fat showing any more then necessary.!! i really do not see anything wrong with capris.

There are other things i hate--as some have mentioned, too much "skin" showing where it shouldn't be, obcessive piercings and other things--again mentioned.

I like the motto modesty in all things. but then again--i'm kind of ole fashioned even tho i'm not that old.

I am also interested in knowing why the majority of the men on this board do not like capri pants, DH doesn't like them (on me) because -please don't take offense - they are something that his mother would wear and they make me look like an old lady.

Ed:Sorry I thought you meant capris. I have to agree with you,pantyhose are nasty. Luckily when I dress up I wear a long dress/skirt and never/rarely have to wear them. I think the new microfibres/materials might make them better though for wearing;altho.I do not think THAT is your complaint about them! Lol!!
Ladies:I think we should in the future have a CM Capri cruise; you know how they are themed. Well, this could be the theme. Men would just have to put up with them!! Lol! Bye for now.

Well, I'd rather wear shorts year round, but sometimes you gotta cover up a little bit more. I personally don't have time to hate anything, it takes too much of my energy and I'd much rather be easy going and happy.

Every time I walk around in public, there is something someone is wearing that I would not ever wear and I'm sure some people look at me that way, too.

I don't do sloppy, unironed clothing, I think it's in bad taste, no matter what the item is. I do agree fat should be covered up, mine is. The only article of clothing I really have a hard time with is a T-shirt with any type of logo, not very flattering on anyone and very unimaginative. Too bad that is what the majority of people out there are wearing, it's very boring.
