A back-to-school look for young men

Were you allowed to wear jeans to school? Plain white T-shirts?

Were you allowed to smolder?

Did a seating chart shape your future?

There are those who might not have met people destined to become important in their lives if not for a teacher's alphabetized desk assignments.

Ideas on possible back-to-school looks

“Honey, you could do your hair like a Fraggle.”

“Sure, Mom. Sounds great.”

This date in Slice history (1994)

Today's Slice question: How laughable are parents' ideas about choosing back-to-school clothes?

Back to school

I'm all for being honest with children.

But maybe there are still a few things that should be kept from them. Take, for instance, the fact that it's not even the 4th of July yet and marketing and PR people are sending out press releases that begin like this:

“Hi Paul,

“I know most newspapers are already drawing up back-to-school buying guides, and I wanted to reach out and let you know about this new product for children.”

It goes on to talk about a line of backpacks. One of them comes with a built-in blanket, which I am sure some kids would need if they knew the words “back to school” were already being uttered.

This might be the earliest ever

I'm already receiving press releases dealing with back-to-school clothes shopping.
