13 Men's Fashions That Never Should Have Happened (Of The Day)

From Complex, who list 50, but I just picked 13 I had actually heard of. My idea of trendy is wearing a shirt with a collar.

CARPENTER PANTS
Lookin' good, Dad. Can I borrow your band saw?

FROSTED TIPS
Frosted flakes.

WALLET CHAIN
You're not Springsteen.

MANICURED BROWS
Even worse than a unibrow.

FOX TAIL BELT
LOLwut? Is this real?

BIEBER HAIR
Even Bieber doesn't wear this anymore.

PARACHUTE PANTS
Stop! Hammer time's over.

CAPS WITH STICKERS
Those come off, you know.

DEEP V-NECKS
You might as well wear an unbuttoned button-up shirt.

TRUCKER CAPS
Trucking isn't cool and never was, except for a brief time in the 70s
that we are all trying to forget.

LAYERED POLO SHIRTS
I thought this only happened in John Hughes movies.

SHOES WITH POINTY OR SQUARE TIPS
What are you, a clown?

CONVERTIBLE PANTS
Part pants, part shorts, all lame. Unless you're 7, then they're way cool.


See the rest at Complex.

News: American Airlines To Phase Out Complimentary Cabin Pressurization

American Airlines To Phase Out Complimentary Cabin Pressurization

FT. WORTH, TX—Explaining that the costs of the service have grown too high in recent years, American Airlines announced Tuesday that it will no longer offer free cabin pressurization to passengers starting March 15.

“Unfortunately, to stay competitive as a legacy carrier in today’s air travel market, it no longer makes economic sense for us to provide breathable air at altitude,” said American Airlines CEO Doug Parker, noting that despite the cutbacks, air pressurization would still be available to first- and business-class travelers as well as those willing to pay an additional fee.

“While we regret any altitude sickness, blood problems, dimmed vision, or hyperventilation that may result from air pressure less than a third normal levels, we remind our customers that such effects will diminish as soon as the aircraft descends below 10,000 feet.”

Parker added that the company is also planning to discontinue complimentary landing gear on flights under four hours.

10 Famous People Who Turned Down SNL (Of The Day)

From Mental Floss.

JOHN CANDY
[SNL] set its sights on some of Second City’s most talented players. There was only one problem: The legendary comedy group had its own sketch comedy show, which featured John Candy, Catherine O’Hara, Eugene Levy, and Harold Ramis. According to Doug Hill and Jeff Weingrad’s book, Saturday Night, Candy “was mortified at being caught in the middle of the tug of war between Saturday Night and SCTV.” He stuck with the latter, but did host SNL in 1983 (and made a couple of cameos).

BONNIE HUNT
Bonnie Hunt’s decision to turn down a role on SNL all came down to one question she posed to Lorne Michaels. “I asked, ‘If there's an end of a scene that doesn't feel like it's working, can you improvise?’” Hunt recalled to the Los Angeles Times. “And he said, ‘Absolutely not.’” And that was it.

AMY SEDARIS
Following Janeane Garofalo’s departure in 1995, SNL was in need of another funny lady and Amy Sedaris auditioned for the spot, but at the same time she was starring in a play she had written with her brother, David. “I met with Lorne Michaels, but at that time we were doing our play One Woman Shoe, and it was everything I wanted,” Sedaris told Interview Magazine in 2001 of her decision to pass.

THE BEATLES
In 1976, six years after they had disbanded, The Beatles were offered $230 million by promoter Sid Bernstein to reunite—an offer they promptly declined. Shortly thereafter, Lorne Michaels made a live plea to the Fab Four to reunite as musical guests on SNL, stating that NBC had authorized him to offer them “a certified check for $3000.” In David Sheff’s book All We Are Saying, Lennon shared that they actually considered it: “Paul and I were together watching that show,” Lennon said. “He was visiting us at our place in the Dakota. We were watching it and almost went down to the studio, just as a gag. We nearly got into a cab, but we were actually too tired.”

JENNIFER ANISTON
While promoting Just Go With It on Oprah in 2011, Aniston’s co-star—and SNL alum—Adam Sandler recalled, “being on the ninth floor where Lorne Michaels’ office was, and seeing Jen come in,” back in the early 1990s. “I was like, ‘Oh, my God. There’s Aniston. Is she about to be on our show?’” But Aniston, who was getting ready to star on Friends, says she declined because, “It was a boys’ club. They thought I was making a huge mistake.”
