More so, because I'd rock it. :)

Those are sort of the extreme expression of the sort of shorts made by Robert Graham, of which I own several.

"One of a kind shirts, for one of a kind men!"

Probably my favorite subgenre of marketeering bullshit is the "you are a unique snowflake" hook...

Yeah, my general response to that is "I'm not, ultimately I'm more like other members of my species than I'm different from them".

Mind you I also hate those mailing I get from jewellers around Christmas time, which are all sort of "we know as a man it's difficult for you to be thoughtful, so come to our event and buy something sparkly for 'er indoors, there will be sports and boobs......"

If you like something, anything really, then rock it out... That's never the issue. Just that mindlessly standing out is just as vapid as mindlessly conforming... And if the marketing departments are good at anything, it's encouraging mindlessness.

No I mean I hate that sort of marketing, my response to those sort of ads is generally derisive chuckling. I really am terribly hard to market to.

I genuinely would probably be okay with those shirts however, assuming the fit was okay.

I don't mind the concept... But that one that is primarily featured looks like something a background dancer would wear in a Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam music video.

I'd probably not want the breast pocket, those things are terrible and useless at the best of times, you don't want to lampshade their ugly uselessness.

Thumbs-out finger-flips are lame.

I would even say that they are square.
