Zubaz Pants Employees Have A Good Sense Of Humor

So we obviously unleashed hell on the Zubaz site by linking to it yesterday, but the folks over there seem to have a sense of humor.

Reader Shan, who is in the United States Marine Corps, forwarded the following communication with Zubaz HQ:

Why would you guys bring these pants back?

    The headline should read, “Zubaz Pants Employees Have A Good Sense Of Humor, resumés up to date.” I hope for their sakes that’s accurate.

  2. martyz says:

    I never knew they were called “Zubaz” — I thought they were always just referred to as the “Crazy Pants That Crazy People Wear”

  3. homerjay says:

    “Zubaz- For when you’ve just stopped caring”

  4. Steve Trachsel, Ace says:

    @homerjay: bah.. I have a pair for putzing around, but most of the people I know who have them use them for working out.

  5. dcndn says:

    Zubaz – Your pants if you love it when your balls stick to your thighs.

  6. savvy999 says:

    I always just called them ‘Coaches Pants’, because for a while it seemed like NFL coaches went on a binge wearing these things. Porky middle-aged men in garish team-colored stripes with clipboards.

    Combine these with some Crocs, and maybe even some old school Oakley shades, and it’s a freakin’ fashion circus.

  7. homerjay says:

    @Tracy Ham and Eggs: That doesn’t make it right. :)

  8. evslin says:

    It’s always Hammer Time.

  9. Bay State Darren says:

    I have just one question: Where can I buy Zubaz stock?!

  10. Aphex242 says:

    I always called them “stupid pants”. Nice to know the real name, even if I won’t use it. lol

  11. crapple says:

    The ensemble is nearly complete…

    So I’ve got the sandals (with socks of course):

    The pants (I think purple and white is best):

    The accessory holder (I wouldn’t want unsightly bulges in my pant-pockets):

    The eyewear:

    AND NOW….I’ve found my head/facewear:

    All I need is a good shirt and/or jacket and I’ll be all set.

  12. crapple says:

    @crapple: I forgot, I already had a jacket:


  13. nlatimer says:



  14. Most common question asked by someone wearing Zubaz pants: How much you bench?

  15. Mayor McRib says:

    @crapple: Please, don’t forget the fanny pack.

  16. SaveMeJeebus says:

    Why should we let mom-jeans wearing women have all the fashion fun? Zubaz for everyone!

  17. CrazyRedd says:

    @savvy999: Oakley Razors *OR* some BluBlockers

  18. crapple says:

    @Mayor McRib: No worries, I have one listed there – it’s black and pleather. It’ll go well with my Members Only Jacket.

  19. hhole says:

    @crapple Ya know, with that ensemble it’s no longer Hammer Time.

    It’s “Business Time”

    Zubaz are so unhip they are hip.

  21. MissTic says:

    I thought those were Joey Buttafuco pants.

  22. whatdoyoucare says:

    @dcndn: That is just wrong, wrong, wrong :). It reminds me of the Tom Petty song, “Free Fallin”. My husband used to sing it “Free ballin” and now I whenever I hear that song I will think of Zubaz. Good times.

  23. Trai_Dep says:

    I always assumed those pants were a way to abuse overly-trusting rug-rats without getting busted by Family Services…

  24. evslin says:

    @nlatimer: :(

  25. Typhoid says:

    I would buy a camo version. *meep*

  26. shan6 says:

    Heh, didn’t expect to have an article of my email, but yeah, friendly people!

  27. Sparkstalker says:

    You and me both…I sincerely hope he wasn’t joking…

  28. smwalker81 says:

    @crapple: Crapple, not that I would pass up the glasses you have already selected, but why not go for some blublockers. Those things were…hmmm

  29. thatgirlinnewyork says:

    um, don’t think these look good on men whatsoever. can we have a moratorium on women wearing juicy couture sweat pants in public if the menfolk agree not to wear zubaz? thank you.

  30. GenXCub says:

    But 13 year old girls with “juicy” on their stretch pants ass is cruise control for “classy”

  31. B says:

    @thatgirlinnewyork: I won’t wear any Zubaz. Does that make you feel better?

  32. MARTHA__JONES says:

    @thatgirlinnewyork: Can we add people over 19 who wear PINK sweats in public? Yesterday I saw a 45 year old woman wearing them. I am convinced that her pale pink PINK hoodie coupled with her shockingly dyed-red hair was a cry for help.

  34. drjayphd says:

    @hhole: Now I’m naked… except for my Zubaz…

  35. The Bigger Unit says:

    Enough! If they’re good enough for the Legion of Doom, they’re good enough for me goddammit.
