Damn you Prince for giving these guys this idea with your Raspberry Beret.
Actual photo of raspberry jeans.
You know I'm not too sure just who'd do the scratching and who'd do the sniffing. Prince, maybe.
Now the company explains their drift into fruit of the loom territory saying guys don't like to wash their jeans. They like that lived-in look. Raspberry-scented jeans are intended to mask the odor associated with extended wearing. So, hey, you slobs out there, one whiff of these jeans and people will know you never take them off. Now there's something you'll want to be known for. Cool.
But the smell. Uh-huh. Oh, yeah. As the article I read put it: "how many guys are going to pick raspberry as their go-to scent"? Exactly. But the company has thought of that. It plans to manufacture a whole line of scented jeans that will include apple, banana, eucalyptus, grapefruit and mint.
Oh, yeah, that'll make me wanna buy 'em.
Uh, guys? Those aren't exactly, um, manly, smells. Oh, and I forgot to tell you. The jeans go for $150 a pair. Are you going to pay $150 to smell like a fruit salad?
I've got a suggestion for you guys. Save yourself $150. Stick with your old jeans. And lose the napkin when you eat. You can create your own manly smelling jeans. Just spill a little pizza and beer in your lap at dinner time and you'll be set. Not to mention the odor that'll result several hours later. Now those would be manly smelling pants.
Manly, yes. But ladies may not like them too.
