The top related result for the currently active sexual attractiveness of uniforms question is our old friend the "poofy pants" question. Seeing poofy pants coming back to a sort of prominence ... makes me want to ask if someone can fix the title.
It's not a bad question but Americans may not realise how dumb the title sounds to British ears. "Poofy" and "pants" are each problematic but could probably stand alone (and be correctly mentally translated by a British reader). But combine them in a title and it's ... er ... just terrible. I'm guessing it'd be the equivalent in American English of talking about "faggoty underpants" or "gay boxers".
Could we replace it in the title with "puffy trousers" or "jodhpur style uniform" or something?
But feeling like that, as a Brit, probably makes me the worst person to fix it, so I haven't touched it. And folks are entitled I think to have their "flavour" of English respected and not edited into a different version. In some ways it would be better done by an American. Since I don't want to start a UK English v. American English edit war. Which is why I suggest it here.
Is it also hypercritical of me if I say "What was with..." is hardly a rigorous way to kick off a question, if this is a serious history site?
