Mario Balotelli: Picnic For One

We know what you’re thinking. It’s something along the lines of, “Here’s Mario Balotelli looking ridiculous wearing a Little Italy novelty shop t-shirt and drop crotch sweatpants to enjoy a fine lunch time meal at Manchester’s Panacea restaurant.”

While that is a true statement, we’re actually thinking something else. We recently stumbled upon the newest craze in outdoor dining attire and it looks as though Mario has as well.

Picnic pants, Kickettes.  They’re the dining garment of the future and being the resourceful, trendsetting, forward-thinking gent that he his, Mario is one step ahead of us all.

And may we remind you, this is Britain’s second best dressed man.

    It looks like he's wearing a diaper… perhaps he just needs to see a doctor for help holding it?

    This man is TRAGIC!!! I cannot believe all the sh*t he does, and that we put up with!!! I honestly can't understand why after all his moaning Why Always Me, he goes out of his way to interupt someone else's press conference?? He is an attention whore, no two ways about it!!! This outfit is proof!!

    They look like MC Hammer pants…

    Considering the way he played against Stoke he has a lot of nerve wearing that T-shirt. And I didn't like the way he crashed the press conference for the new Inter manager. I mean, this guy complains on and on about all the press attention he gets and Why Always Me but then he goes out of his way to attract attention and to steal someone else's thunder.

    He's annoying me this week, and that outfit hasn't helped.

      I doubt he's thinking 'I didn't play very well in a football match so I'd better not wear this T-shirt'. That's not how I think before I dress myself. To be honest, I think he doesn't really think about a lot of what he does, but I find it endearing. He's spontaneous. Point of contrast – I was watching Sunderland vs Everton on Tuesday night. I saw Tim Cahill having a joke with Jelavic on the bench and looking smiley and adorable, and was thinking he must be quite a character, but then they interviewed him after the game and oh my word, he was making such an effort to be boring! That's not what I want to see!

        The T-shirt comment was tongue-in-cheek.

        As for the rest, I too love a character off the pitch, and have defended Balotelli many times, but to me the cardinal sin is disloyalty, and I am getting very upset with the way he treats Mancini who has shown a super-human amount of faith in him, only to be let down again and again. And he lets down his team mates repeatedly as well, with his strops and sulks and lack of effort. Has he figured out that careers are at stake here? Does he even care?

    These are hammer pants, nothing more, nothing less. Every fashion statement, good and bad, comes back for a rerun at some point. A couple years ago it was acid washed jeans, now its time for saggy crotches and more bad decisions.

    Mario, that pants and that style maybe really does suit for some people.
    And tbh, you’re definitely not a part of it.

    “Harem pants” have been huge in Asia for a few years. Probably waning now. But if you aren’t less than 5% body fat or a cute Kpop singer, they are pretty hard to pull off.

    I keep forgetting that he's 21 years old.

  12. Amy says:

    I love the t-shirt, but pants like that make people look like they are wearing a saggy diaper. Might be the least-sexy thing I can imagine someone wearing. Ugh.

    Those pants are worse than all my fashion deal breakers put together:
    1) Jean shorts
    2) Short sets
    3) Vigram Five Finger shoes
    4) Manpris
    5) Texas Tuxedos

    I seriously don't know what to say.
