String vest, R.I.P.


According to the Times of London, the fishnet wife-beater known as the "string vest" has finally bitten the dust, having been dropped by mass British retailers like Asda and Tesco. Evidently, as a spokesman for one British retailer put it, "the unobscured view of bulging waistlines, hairy chests, and—worst of all—sweaty armpits, placed prominently on display by the baggy, open-structured string vest, was too much for many wives and girlfriends to bear."
