Skinny jeans. 

I just noticed a very attractive woman in art school and every full-length shot of her is ruined by her skinny jeans.  They're so unnatural.  It's like seeing a bald guy or a talking horse.

I know some people say that if you see a good seamstress, they're almost indistinguishable from real jeans, but I can always tell the difference.

They're pretty much synonyms.

My bald head is real. I'd never shave it.

Do you think someone could ever achieve a natural look by shaving?

I can spot fake baldness from 5.3 km away.

Women can wear them all they want.  Men on the other hand, should be punched in the face.

I've seen some but they were very expensive. I asked if I could rub 'em and they giggled, "Sure!". I swear I couldn't tell the difference. The give away is the eyebrows. You have to shave the eyebrows too!

They look good on tall, skinny people.

The rest of us = not so much.

I feel like you're the only one who understands me today.

Just make sure the eyebrows point the same direction.
