I'm waiting for Meg White to suddenly zoom in from the centre.

Houndstooth Mafia

One from the archives. A houndstooth Bugsy Siegel plotting your hit.

Blake Lively Does Houndstooth


So much for my crush on Blake Lively.

Alexander McQueen's Supervillain Costumes

This McQueen jacket, as wicked as it is, could just as well have been peppered in ampersands or right and left braces. He's skating dangerously close to Riddler territory.

Kid Robot Houndstooth Tees

I followed up on those Kid Robot tees after accidentaly running in to them at Boys Co. in 'couver. It was a bizarre shocker to find them in a store that used to carry John Richmond and K. But now you can have a houndstooth t-shirt to wear when playing with your Kid Robot dinky toys.

Desperate Hound

You can tell by the desperation in its eyes that this hound is no fan of its houndstooth harness.

J'Accuse Chicago!

More pics coming in from the rampant houndstooth plague sweeping across Chicago's fashion community. A deadly pox that exhibits a festering mesh of four-pointed-shapes and fractured checks. As these two pictures sent in by a very concerned anti-houndstooth advocate indicate, the patterned pustules can occur anywhere on the human body including the hips, thighs, and the throat. Do not approach the infected. There is nothing you can do to help them. They are lost to you. Simply raise your hand and block them from your site.

Junya Watanabe Gets In On The Houndstooth Action

Another success at Paris fashion week has all the critics raving and stampeding to celebrate the Junya Watanabe's Spring/Summer 2010 collection. All I see is a hideous series of outfits for mimes. The above as an example with its houndstooth jacket and mummified toddler for a hat!?! She looks like she's on her way to a Dr. Who convention or a dadaist's ball.

Since houndstooth has received the blessings of Watanabe and Gaultier in Paris it looks like houndstooth will continue to dominate 'til Spring/Summer 2010! I think sooo much is invested in the pattern now we are in a cycle of perpetuation from which we may never be freed.

R.I.P. Lindsay Lohan

R.I.P. Lindsay Lohan.

July 2nd, 1986 to Emmanuel Ungaro Show, Spring/Summer 2010.

Even Army & Navy wouldn't touch this collection. I hope this means a possible sequel to I KNOW WHO KILLED ME is in the works. It's one of my all time favorite WTF! movies.

Lindsay, it's not you babe. It's just the curse of your houndstooth follies. Repent and be forgiven.

Anna Sui's Houndstooth Jacquard Dress

Anna Sui's kickass "Gossip Girl" inspired line for Target includes, alas, houndstooth. I'm on the fence. But I can possibly stomach the houndstooth in this number because I find Sui's opium den stylings such a turn on. The front is awesome with its shades of Japanese Goth Lolita but by the time Sui gets to the back of the dress it looks like the inspired design has exhausted itself. You get a somewhat boxy and dull shoulder and waist akin to a kit Halloween costume and the polyester/rayon material looks like it lacks a bit of class. But it's only $69 bucks!!! I'll take two.

Kid Robot Chicago Museum of Art

Houndstooth's desperate attempt to penetrate the membrane of the high art world. Someone just sent in this Kid Robot tee hanging on the rack in the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art's gift shop. Plus a houndstooth umbrella for sale. Houndstooth trying to sneak its way in past the Magrittes and Redons? No dice!

Houndstooth in the Real World

An astounding houndstooth combo including polka dots and tiger stripes courtesy of the Second Life fashion blog It's Only Fashion. It's far better than a Master Chief Halo hoodie from Ecko. I wonder how resistant that hoodie is to a Covenant Carbine. I bet it goes up in flames. I'd rather wear the houndstooth and stripes to an off-world battlefield.

Halloween Houndstooth

Old Navy orange and black flip flops. Are we going to see this color houndstooth creeping up just in time for halloween?
