Aaron Paul at Audi Celebrates Emmys Week 2014 Event

Posted on August 22, 2014

We suppose we should commend him for cleaning up so nicely and putting the work in, since we yelled at him that one time for failing to impress us, but we’re afraid we’re going to have to give him only the bare minimum of our approval. We’re sure he’s weeping over that.

But look: It starts off okay …

The head is groomed nicely and the plaid suits looks pretty good on him. Okay, the black shirt’s kinda lame, and the lack of a tie is a total mistake, but we suppose we could have lived with it all until we got to that ridiculous puddle of fabric at his feet. As the kids (of 2008) say: FAIL, Aaron Paul. Fail.

      I don’t understand wearing pants that are too long. If anything, I’d rather risk them being a bit too short because I usually wear some sort of brightly colored sock that is worth being displayed.

      • boweryboy

        I’m totally saving up for a Thom Browne suit for that very reason.

        • RussellH88

          Usually if I’m wearing all dark colors, I like to have my socks slightly visible and they’re usually bright and more whimsical. I like a contrast that it’s so overt.

      Scroll down disappointment.

        Also, I was going to troll the posts today for piglet names (we had 5 last night, all girls) but the posts thus have not been good ones for names. So far I’ve got Truffles, Bacon Bits, possibly a Gwennie (Gwyneth Paltrow) and JLo. It amuses me to name pigs after celebs that annoy me.

        • Anna

          Will there be one named Taylor or Swifty?

          • Glam Dixie

            Oh no, while not huge fans, one of my daughters likes her enough that she does not approve of any Taylor bashing

            • Anna

              Ah, OK. Well there’s always Blake. And a whole family of D-Listers!

          • FibonacciSequins

            Ha. I just came up with not just Taylor, but Swifty as well.

        • RussellH88

          One of my min-pins is fat, so I’ve taken to calling her Hamwinky. Her real name is Beatrice.

          • Glam Dixie

            Lol, if we had even one boy he was going to be Hampton.

        • sugarkane105

          How bout a Zooey?
          ETA: It would also crack me up if you named one Mariah.

          • KinoEye

            Glad you made the suggestion so I didn’t have to. Zooey (as in Deschanel) FTW

        • MoHub

          I actually had a friend with a Vietnamese potbelly pig named Truffles. When the pig misbehaved, my friend used to hold up a pork chop and say, “See him? He was bad.”

          • Glam Dixie

            Papa pig is named Pork Chop! Mom is Petunia after cartoon Porky’s girlfriend. These are the big ones like you see at the fair, but the piglets are so frickin’ cute. I got video of one being born too, we missed her having the first litter. Didn’t even think about this hijacking the comments. Will save any more for TLounge. We can all discuss!

        • formerlyAnon

          Might I nominate some variant of Reese? Reesie? (You could pretend it’s after the peanut butter cup if some child objects.)

        • J.W.

          Kimmie?

        • J.W.

          Chicharrón? You could call her Chi-Chi for short. Of course, there’s Gub-Gub from Dr. Doolittle but I can remember if it was a boy or a girl.

        • FibonacciSequins

          Biebs?

          • FibonacciSequins

            Chloe? Taylor, or Swifty?

          • Freynika

            His/Her Plumpness? That’s part of my dog’s long-ass title. “Plump” is such a fun word to say.

    • Bad Idea Jeans

      There’s something very David Silver, 90210, about this look. No.

    • Anna

      Why is he being all Vanna White in the 2nd photo? There’s no actual Audis there, it’s just an Audi backdrop.

      I love a good glen plaid but the overall vibe I’m getting is ’90s stockbroker.

    • sugarkane105

      He’s melting.

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

      He looks like he’s melting before our very eyes. I wonder if making out with him would help.

    • Imasewsure

      Close up shot is adorable and does show how nice the plaid looks on him… scroll back (and down) however and it’s epic fail… :(

    • PinkyK

      Obviously, those are not his pants!

    • Chuck Barthelme

      After all that blue meth he sold, he should have enough scratch to pay a tailor to fix that.

    • http://fibonaccisequins.storenvy.com/ Danielle

      That fabric has to be stifling. Here’s hoping he blows us all away at the Emmys.

    • Ashleigh

      add a bolo and it’s 1982 all over again

      • J.W.

        Bolos!

    • Mothra

      neck beard. it is the male version of empty purse.

    • frannyprof

      Chess King, circa 1990.

      • anonylind

        oh my goodness. I think ours had closed by then, but thanks for the memory.

    • http://www.wilde-travels.com/ Jacob Marek

      Y’know, he’s one of those guys that just gets an automatic pass from me. He just seems so loveable that I couldn’t possibly critique!

    • Sofia

      I couldn’t get past the forehead.

    • marlie

      Is he wearing the pants to a completely differently sized suit? Otherwise, I think he looks good from the waist up.

    • decormaven

      Get thee to a tailor, sir. Puddle pants are not a good RC look.

    • http://instagram.com/nevareese International Model

      Despite the fail, he is doing Idaho proud.

    • TinyDynamo

      I totally thought he had on a black mock turtleneck & wondered if he was at a Color Me Badd reunion show. This is awful.

    • MarissaLG

      It’s fine that he’s not a tall man, but he looks like he put on Daddy’s suit for the big Emmy party.

    • FibonacciSequins

      Not just his feet, but he could lop a couple of inches off those sleeves as well. He’s swimming in that thing.

    • MilaXX

      The whole suit is at least a size too big. I love him cause he seems like such a guy, but come’on Aaron, you can afford to have your clothes tailored.

      • smayper

        True — but in a world of male stars wearing their suits super tight, it’s kind of refreshing to see one going the other way. NO mercy on the lack of hem, though.

    • Kris

      The face does look great, a shame about the pants.

    • Freynika

      This is just not good enough for my Jesse. Mr. White really needs to give him a lesson in suit-wearing. I was actually more bothered by his hair. It looks super awful and makes him look like he has the hairline of someone twenty years his senior. He looks much better with a buzz or something that combs down in the front. I don’t know, I guess I’d always rather see him in baggy jeans and a flannel or hoodie. I know he’s a human with his own style, but he’ll always be my Jesse.

    • Valdri8

      Jeez, Dood; get a stapler and create some mad cuffs!

    • Synnae

      Jeez, dude, surely you made enough to at least afford a stapler? And don’t just hem your pants, also hem your sleeves, they are eating your hands.

      Shame because he tried to put the effort in and had the suit fitting correctly I would have loved this.

      • smayper

        Ouch, just noticed the shirt sleeves! That takes it to over the top for don’t-give-enough-of-a-shit.

    • dmkava

      He looks like he sold the most Audis and is here to accept his award

    • smayper

      I adore that suit. I want one, female version.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      The ankle puddle is disappointing but I cannot be mad at Jesse, I just can’t…

    • Columbinia

      The puddling pants were Jesse Pinkman’s trademark, so maybe he thinks he should keep them that way.

    • demidaemon

      If he had only had a tie (preferably in a color) and hemmed his pants properly, he would have gotten an A+. He’s hitting a C+ average at this point.

    • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

      My love for him continues despite this unfortunate outfit. :)

    • Miranda Reseigh

      His pants are definitely too long, but, if you look carefully, the waist is sitting really low. I’m pretty sure his hands are in his pockets in an effort to keep those trousers from dropping.

    • ktr33

      Don’t care for the black shirt with lighter jacket look, but then the pant leg, the pant leg! I guess he was handed a suit the day of the event and no time to hem? That’s what hemming tape is for!

    • LibKat

      I find the pompadour-ish backcomb off-putting. When the forehead has gotten that high, you don’t want to add to the height. Rest of the face looks great though. Nice to see him bright-eyed and smiling.

    • altermyego

      Extra credit for having his hands in his pockets in a model-y kind of way and not a I-don’t-know-what-to-do-with-my-hands kind of way.
      The pics where you don’t see his feet make me long for the day we get to see him on tv weekly again.
