An Open letter to Everyone Invoilved With "Project Runway"

Dear Everyone,

     Please, please, please for the love of God, stop using the singular "pant." I don't know why it's so annoying, and I don't know why I find it vaguely creepy, but it is and I do. The term has always been "pants." As in "I have designed this pair of pants which do not fit my model correctly and make her appear to wearing Huggies." Why do you all insist on using "pant," as in "I think instead of a dress, I will design a jacket and a pant which will be too tight and make my model look lumpy and misshapen."

If you are for whatever reason, you are uncomfortable with the term "pants," there are other alternatives.

Slacks

Trousers

Britches

Pantalones

Cullotes

Whatever. Just please stop saying "a pant."

I thank you for your prompt consideration of this matter.

It always bothered me when I worked in retail when the managers would say "product," as in "We're getting a shipment of new product in today." I always wanted to say, "Oh, is there only one item on that truck??"
