    The "Anti-Establishment Post-Grad Slacks"

    O Brother. "Our Post-Grad Slacks have soul." Look at his expression; looks like he's ready to punch a hole in the wall the second the shoot's over.

    Nolte, finished with a long hard day of dogie rustling, is about to hit the town with his pardners in search of a fine cold sasparilla.

    DEATH PANTS! Is that a young George Takei, left?

    “Ask not. They’re for you…and come in a ring-a-ding assortment of colors and fabrics. They’re definitely becoming a novel American great.” The cool black dude's slacks have foodstuffs all over them.

    A "Tom Jonesey shirt with balloon sleeves..."
