We introduced you to Levi's "Ex-Girlfriend Jeans" last month -- the pants for men with "a fit that's super-snug allover, an update of the five-pocket classic that's as skinny as it gets."
However, television host Stephen Colbert isn't having any of it. On "The Colbert Report," he issued a Wag of the Finger to Levi's, remarking, "The skinnification of the American jeanscape has gone too far! First it was tapered cut, then shrink-to-fit, then slim fit boot cut, then slouchy slim, then skinny fit. Enough. We get it -- you're in a band!"
He also has a problem with the name of the jeans, adding, "Yes, you're honoring [your ex-girlfriend], by looking like you broke into her apartment and stole her pants. Which I'm sure doesn't violate the restraining order." Mainly, we just enjoy watching Colbert talk style and spew words like "peasant blouse" and "strappy sandals." Additionally, we refuse to take his commentary seriously unless he appears on-air in a pair of the pants (see Conan O'Brien in jeggings.)
