Shaki Fashion


Shaki’s! at Pitchfork.

 

The Pitchfork Music Festival is the G8 of Shaki Summits.  So many cut offs, so little cellphone camera battery life.  Here’s a swell one.

Ahhhh, the morning commute.  Nothing brightens up a Wednesday like seeing a business/pleasure combo that rivals that of a mullett.  I’m talking some pretty sharp-looking pinstripe slacks cut & tastefull ragged right at the knee.  And in a snip of the scissors, Shlakis are born.  (Apologies for the bad pic, I’m trying to remain discreet).

I have to admit, Boston-based OAK Handmade Clothing and Gifts has some really cool-looking, crafty, cute stuff.  But I have to call to attention their Dingey Shorts ($65):

There is SO much going on here, I’m not even sure where to start.  What to call these things.  They are Jorts, the are over-the-waist mom jeans, they are nautical themed, they are worn by a woman who looks partially amphibious herself.  Jorts, Mom Jeans, Sailors… I don’t know what to call these.  I’m open to suggestion.  RIght now I’ll leave it open to discussion. 

These jorts prove one thing — if you are attractive, you can make anything look good.  In fact, that is a Vice Magazine Fashion tip I believe.

 

           

Unfortunately, they’re not cutoff shakis but all you need to make Cut-Off Shaki’s is H&M’s summer jorts and a pair of rusty scissors.

The flashy shakis pictured above, “Khaki Fringe Shorts” are from the Surf Island collection and retail at $22.50.  As to be expected, there are TONS of jorts available too:
