Let Your Greek Flag Fly



I believe we should all adopt this style of clothing to show solidarity with the economically troubled Greeks.

IIRC, black and white are the Greek colors for mourning.

Some of the fashions remind me of a Peter Max illustration, especially the girl with the super wide white pants (slacks?).

@Paul: I've got a better idea: take the money you'd spend on this crap and send it to me then I'll redistribute it.

@Scottie: Nope, just black. Ustawuz when a husband died the wife took to the black for the rest of her life. Some daughters got caught up in this but most snapped out of it after a few years. Now-a-days the crowd applauds when the casket bearing some socialite, politician, or actor passes by. The politicians I can understand but what's up with the rest?

Y'all: I don't think I ever saw any of these "fashions" anywhere except in some old movie, maybe.

We have many things to thanks the Greeks for but not this.

All the ancient Greek articfacts I have seen pictured showed the Greeks as totally nude (athletes, warriors, etc) or wearing something akin to an extra large bath towel. The men seemed to prefer miniskirts.

I hope my past comment was taken meaning the clothing and this post. Love them orgies Expat. It just kinda bothers you when you get up against some other guys junk by accident. The La Plaz club in Indianapolis was great fun for us ... I wonder if they still exist.

@BD I'm surprised that you would violate article 5 of the Bro Code which clearly states: NO eye contact (let alone crossed swords) during the Devil's three-way (two dudes)! cool mad

@TadChem: The Greek word for naked is Gymnos (ΓΥΜΝΟΣ), gymnasium is, then Gymnasio (ΓΥΜΝΑΣΙΟ). While they did do sports nude they fought in armor. The "skirts" (foustanella) you refer to were worn much for the same reason the Scots wore kilts. To free up the legs while traversing rocky, mountainous terrain.

@BD: If you're going to orgy then you can't be picky about which sword or sheath you're using.
