Tastemaker. Now there is a word I dislike intensely. The idea that someone could make those decisions for me is both repugnant and presumptuous. But… what’s a boy to do in a world with information streams propagating like fruit flies in a lab.
Words cannot adequately capture the moment of horror I experienced upon realizing that the following article of clothing is not in fact a joke put forth by the good people at Huffington Post. I’m still a little stunned but I knew it had to be shared with the world, if only so that you can all be appalled with me.
