nds!pa pomus

same denim wear worn differently
  [vote for,

When I was a kid, bib overalls were worn foremost by (train) engineers. Even carpenters and real farmers sported the sturdy dungarees. This utilitarian garment is back with a few changes. The crotch is opened up to pass the head through the fly, and the legs are hemmed up to the wrists.

Voila, a jeans shirt extraordinaire to match your Armani contact lenses. Add a section to the middle, the bib becomes a loincloth, and Madame is très chic in an eye-popping dress worn over panties or shorts. Named nds!pa pomus since they’re overalls upside down.

       You're a strange one John. My wife doesn't like it, but I can't fishbone a drawing like that.

       I'd talk to her. croissant for you

       Didn't you already do upside down clothing? (Took me a few moments to figure out the title.)
DrCurry, Aug 17 2004

       Excellent, but she doesn’t measure up to the traditional orientation—I mean, without a shirt, of course.

       Did you not wish to use the gold standard?

skinflaps, Aug 17 2004

       [Doktor C] No. I did do a +shirt that can be worn backwards, sideways and/or downside up.   

       [thumb, skin] Yours is purttier except for the !.
FarmerJohn, Aug 17 2004

       Well thank goodness there's a drawing! +

       Ironically, the straps add depth to an otherwise heartless tableture. I originally thought this idea was a way to distribute fabric in remade garments so to relieve the normal pattern of wear at stress points, but I see you've gone one better there [FarmerJohn]. Bravo on a neat design!
dpsyplc, Aug 17 2004

       Oh jeeze. I didn't understand what you were saying whilst reading the idea, [FJ], but when I saw the drawing I almost fell out of my chair I was laughing so hard. I'd guard that design jealously if I were you--wouldn't want to see that creation on the Yves Saint Laurent catwalk next spring with no due credit to you.
Machiavelli, Aug 17 2004

       Reading these annotations, I can't determine now which of them are OK and which are flipped or rotated. At the moment, all left-to-right texts seems a bit suspicious.

shibolim, Aug 17 2004

       It's good to know I'm not the only one going cross-eyed, then.
Machiavelli, Aug 17 2004

       I thought only my mind worked like this......expect to see this in Paris and New York next year.
normzone, Aug 17 2004

       I got kind of turned on by that drawing. One slightly moist bun from me.
bungston, Aug 17 2004

       Oohhhh [bungston]! That's it for me. I can't laugh anymore today. My cheeks (on my face) and abs are sore already. No more laughter...please.
Machiavelli, Aug 17 2004

       Bungston, that's more than I needed to know.
Freefall, Aug 17 2004

       ***resists the temptation to mention cream-filled buns***
Machiavelli, Aug 17 2004

       I don't think [FJ] requires his name under his ideas any longer. As soon as I read "The crotch is opened up to pass the head through the fly" I knew who was behind this monstrosity.
wagster, Aug 17 2004

       Probably the line that gave bung a semi.
waugsqueke, Aug 17 2004

       Er... semi?
Detly, Aug 17 2004

       FJ: Nah, I distinctly remember a drawing of yours of two pairs of jeans sewn together at the leg end.
DrCurry, Aug 17 2004

       [Detly] It's somewhere in the dictionary between noodle and woody.   

       Shouldn't the name be ,,sumop apisdn,,?
supercat, Aug 18 2004

       See thumbwax's anno and my reply above.
FarmerJohn, Aug 18 2004

       agreed FJ but yours reads from right to left!
po, Aug 18 2004

       It depends if one rotates the whole title or each letter (not quite cricket) before reading.
FarmerJohn, Aug 18 2004

       [Zanzibar], that's exactly what I was going to say! Took the words right out of my mouth.
Machiavelli, Aug 18 2004

       Freakin' awesome. I'm with wagster, I had to read that line at least twice to conceive, but I at once knew to whom it belonged. +unq
