Yesterday, we got an e-mail from a reader begging for a spirit-boosting Monday morning dose of Pacey at the Teen Choice Awards, just because. Unfortunately I didn’t get the e-mail until it was too late, so here’s hoping this gives her a pleasant Tuesday jolt:
Oh, Pacey. I know we rag on a lot of actors for not bothering to shave for an event, but I also know half of them are in the middle of working and can’t raze the face for continuity reasons, so let’s just assume Pacey’s facial fringe is for Fringe and move onto the matter of his wardrobe. I love how comfortable yet dressed-up he looks, but I also can’t escape the notion that he’s only really dressed from the waist up — like how on Gossip Girl set photos, you’ll see the actresses running around in high-fashion gowns and Ugg boots, because they don’t want to wear their sky-high heels unless it’s a full-body shot. Or how I have long suspected that sometimes newscasters don’t bother wearing pants, or do it in PJ pants or something (new t-shirt: Newscasters Do It In Flannel), because they’re behind a desk all day. I don’t know. There’s an almost-but-not-quite quality to it.
And let’s address what’s under the jacket:
How do we feel about the checked shirt with the knit stripey tie? Shaggably offbeat and cool, or Shaggable Mathlete Makes Two And Two Equal Five? I guess either way, on the Shaggable Scale, Pacey wins.
