Anthony Mackie at the “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” London Premiere

Posted on March 21, 2014

Oh man. What a disappointment as you scroll down.

Anthony Mackie attends the UK Premiere of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” in London.

 

Cop show pants.

He needs a badge hanging off his belt and an overworked superior who keeps threatening to take it away because dammit, he’s just such a rule-breaker. 

We hereby dub this the “First 30 Minutes of Law & Order” suit.  It’s not horrible or anything. Wait. Yes it is. Sorry. We were going to say more, but this suit sucks and it looks like he got it on sale with a second pair of pants. You’re at your big superhero movie, Anthony. You’re in the Marvel family now, which means you just hooked up to a gravy train if you play your cards right. This was not the way to show up. Bring some style next time.

      I am doing the church giggles, so hard at my desk, that tears are streaming down my face and something just came out of my nose. I don’t even know what the fuck it was. I look like a lunatic. Bless you, Uncles. Bless you.

      • marlie

        Now you’ve made me catch the church giggles.

        • DebbieLovesShoes

          Totally on the same page with you. Silent, shoulders shaking……

          • Lucinda Head

            Those pants come with pockets specially designed for the tiny cop notepad.

        • Danielle

          Careful, you’ll get the Baptist elbow if you get caught!

          • Constant Reader

            Or a deacon will give you the fish eye. Not that I’ve ever had that happen to me.

    • SayWhaaatNow

      Pursuit of Happyness before the Happy

      • sugarkane105

        YES. He just needs that clunky x-ray device thingy next to him.

      • kimmeister

        I was totally thinking he looked like an impish version of Will Smith!

    • Clash D

      That tie looks like it was thrown into the washing machine. And spin dried. Poor, sad, weather-beaten tie.

      I refuse to acknowledge those pants.

      • lunchcoma

        Does that mean you’re imagining him without them?

        • Clash D

          damn. i walked right into that one didn’t I? ROFL.

    • Kathy

      He is gorgeous though.

      • formerlyAnon

        This is fact, indeed.

    • marlie

      PLEATED. PANTS. Sorry, Anthony, no.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

      Look at those cheekbones though. *sigh* so beautiful, I don’t even need to look at his pants.

      • Let it out

        And the smile! Yum!

      • Jacob Bowen

        He has DIVINE cheekbones. He looks like he’s sucking in his cheeks….so jealous.

      • formerlyAnon

        Yeah. Today hasn’t been my favorite Sausage Friday, but he’s redeeming it hard, suit notwithstanding.

        • 3boysful

          Agree. And he does get points for wearing a belt.

    • Anna

      Luuurrvvve Anthony Mackie. Let’s just throw out this “60% off select suits and sport coats” Men’s Wearhouse special, shall we?

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      Oh, honey. If you wanted to wear some L&O cop pants then at least try to aim more for the Ed Green end of the spectrum than the Max Greevey end.

      • CatherineRhodes

        Or Rey Curtis. Benjamin Bratt knew how to fill out a pair of trousers.

        • eowyn_of_rohan

          Even Munch has better tailoring than poor Anthony.

          • Sarah

            Munsch was known for his particularly snooty taste in suits and shoes. It was a running joke that he would complain about getting his shoes dirty or some such and then Tutuola would make comments about where he got the money for all that stuff considering he had to pay alimony to umpteen ex wives.

    • JauntyJohn

      Seriously, dude. wtf.

      Also, please, we are not bringing back pleated pants.
      Please, I am begging.

      • demidaemon

        Yeah, I’m with you.

      • formerlyAnon

        Man or woman, they flatter NO ONE.

        • Sarah

          I still remember arguing with my mom about how I was pretty sure they made me look “puffy” during their 80′s iteration, and her saying “but that lavender is so CUTE on you” re: the pegged, pastel, pleated, inseam pocketed slacks (complete with tiny white patent belt) she made me wear that spring.

          • formerlyAnon

            I’ve “lost” a lot of ’80s photos of myself due to pegged, pleated pants.

          • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

            I WANTED a pair of those!

            • Sarah

              Oh gawd. I would’ve been more than happy to hand them over. It was about six more years before I could make my own decisions/purchases, but I was already a dark-color lover on the inside.

            • Constant Reader

              My mother kept me in olive green, pumpkin orange… it was the 70s, and those are colors SHE looks great in. I have black hair and light olive skin. I refer to photos from that era as The Consumptive Years.

    • Jacob Bowen

      I LOVE that shirt/tie combo up close but from far away I feel like it looks cheap.

    • SugarSnap108

      Why do pleated pants exist? Still, Anthony and his cop show pants can pat me down anytime.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      That belt looks like it’s made out of plastic. His face is so handsome and deserves better clothing.

    • demidaemon

      Such a bad suit. I think he deserves a smiley face sticker, though, for wearing a belt.

      • MilaXX

        Not when the sole purpose of said belt seems to be in order to hold up pants that are too big.

        • demidaemon

          I actually had that thought post-post. If these were perfect pants with a belt, he would get a gold star. But I feel like re deserves some praise, so that’s why he gets the down graded smiley face sticker. Like the kid who finally got some words right on his spelling test after flunking for four weeks straight.

    • smayer

      That suit would fit in great here in Charlotte. But not so much for a movie premier in London.

    • Eclectic Mayhem

      Incapable of seeing rubbish trousers because Mr. Mackie is so lovely.

    • MilaXX

      I like Anthony Mackie, but those pants are too big. Look at the belt. Fabric just pooling & buckling, pants legs wide enough for 2 and in desperate need of a hem. I’mma need you to do better Mr. Mackie.

    • Sofia

      poor guy. he is getting ripped. the next person to do it has to hold him afterwards.

      • Kathy

        I volunteer!

    • lunchcoma

      It was referred to elsewhere as a Banker Suit, but I look at saggy pants, and you are right. It’s a Cop Show Suit. Even bankers do a bit better.

    • Sarah

      If you’re playing the Black Condor, you should bring more fierce. This is like the anti-WITFU.

    • formerlyAnon

      Hey! He’s wearing a belt. Even if it does look as if it might be made of laminated cardboard.

      But yeah. Trousers don’t fit.

      • Sarah

        Whoo – got it on sale with a second pair of pants indeed – and one free vinyl belt. Yikes.

    • Glam Dixie

      I thought pleated pants were illegal.

      • Lori

        In BitterKittenLandia they are. Sadly the real world refuses to follow suit.

    • http://batman-news.com boweryboy

      Pleated dress pants. ’nuff said.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      “First 30 Minutes of Law & Order” suit is for some reason exactly how I feel when I wear a pantsuit with a button-down shirt with the shirt collar over/outside the lapels (as opposed to tucked in). I just look at myself and think, “yep, lady cop detective.” I haven’t worn button down shirts in a while. /tangent

    • http://stylishsass.blogspot.com/ TAKippy

      Scroll down letdown? Is this a thing?

      • Glam Dixie

        Scroll down disappointment?

    • sagecreek

      He’s still pretty.

    • Imasewsure

      Yes this suit is awful. WITFU Mr. Cutie!!

    • Imasewsure

      So these are “Sgt. Pop Pop trousers”…. not good Detective Mackie… not good…

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      Is there no style budget for this movie’s RC pole dance tour?

    • lillyvonschtupp

      Someone should tell him he doesn’t need to shop at Marshall’s anymore.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      Perfect description of this suit. Too bad, because he’s cute.

    • MannahattaMamma

      styleshmyle when you’ve got that smile.
      which when I started typing I didn’t realize was going to be all rhymey and everything.
      he’s just wickedly adorable, is all. I didn’t really get all the way down to the pants hem….

    • mickiemonkey

      Yet another bunchy pants with him? Does he think we are NOT GOING TO LOOK AT HIS PANTS?

    • mickiemonkey

      I still want him to sit on my lap, bunch pants and all.

    • carnush

      Good cop with a temper who is oblivious to his own sex appeal. I’d watch it.
