Hammer Time: Can't Touch This
I really can't believe MC Hammer pants are back in. I don't care if anthropologie is selling them or JLo is wearing them, I am not in on this trend.
I gave Hammer pants their fair shot when i was in second grade. My mom made me not one but two pairs - one a blue material with pictures of jewels on them and one a purple paisley. Those things were awesome. In fact, many moms called my mom to get the pattern to make them. It was the only time in grade school that I was remotely cool. Probably because my metamorphosis of looking like a boy was not yet complete at that time...but that's another story for another day. The patterns for such pants are still around if you want to venture out and make some.
What are your thoughts on hammer/harem pants?
