Pegleg Pants. The Latest Fashion Statement For Men...

Pegleg Pants is one name for them.
Call them what you will.
Not the sort of thing you might see featured on The Sartorialist perhaps but here they are.
As worn by some of the fashionistas on the playa at this year's Burning Man.
Men. Wear them if you dare...


  1. Which one are you? Are you the one on the right or the one on the left. Looking good Keith (grin).

  2. A back view of Pegleg pants would be nice

  3. Now that is really silly!!

  4. What's with the masks? It looks like they took off a leg and put it on their heads.

    At least they're getting away from the annoying man-burqas that have passed for "shorts" for the past 30 years.


    1. The masks Val. Well would you want to be recognised in those pants...

    2. The most obvious reason for the masks - and I'm not joking here - is to help the wearer cope with the choking clouds of playa dust that are ~everywhere~ at this event. It's very sticky alkali dust that gets into everything and is just about impossible to wash off completely.

      Those of you who want another perspective of this event might enjoy reading John Labovitz's experience of four years ago when he attended the event with huge expectations of having a great time.

  5. Oh Joy. Another reason to avoid the Black Rock Mesa at the end of August. As if I needed any more reasons to shun burning man...

  6. Raise your hand if you think this is attractive, sexy, comfortable or sensible. YUCK!

  7. Way over dressed for the nudist being the operative word.
