Phil Anselmo, Ben Weinman Rock Cat Pants

Metal's next trend?

Metal’s next trend?

Could cat pants be the next metal trend?

I certainly hope not. Because that is not a fad I can get behind.

Though, it is not as though I really fit the fucking metal bill anyways. After all, I lack ink and a vest with patches. I have no facial hair at the moment and don’t have long, flowing locks.

What I’m saying is, I don’t look metal, and probably never will.

Anyways, Down frontman Philip H Anselmo and Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman were hanging over this weekend, and how embarrassing! They both wore skin tight feline-printed pants.

Weinman said of the photo:

“Me and my uncle @philiphanselmo have a gang. And these pants are our uniform.”

I mostly just posted this image because its beautiful. Two men, so comfortable with who they are, they rock pants like that.
