On last night's Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert has some sharp words for Levi's new, skinny-fit "ex-girlfriend jeans" for men. The idea is that when a guy wears the jeans, he's honoring his ex's great sense of style. Says Colbert: "Yes. You're honoring her. By looking like you broke back into her apartment and stole her pants." Check out the segment, starting at 1:55 below.
