I think the ankle-length denim skirt has to be the worstfashion-religious compromise in the rich tradition of bad Jewishreligion fashion.

It's not like the girls are going all-out Jewish, with the shavedhead, wig, black skirt and Orthodox husband by her side. But it's notthe reformed, slutty Jewish girl that we all know and love. It comesoff like, "I'm an orthodox Jewish girl. And I also like Roy Rogers."

In other words, the angle-length denim skirt is the female version of the yarmulke. A three-foot denim yarmulke.

Who is supposed to be fooled by this? It's not using denim insteadof cotton or silk is rebelling when maybe all that's being shown is acentimeter of sock. And now it has permeated so much that there's nohiding the Orthodox association.

There's no getting around the Jewish tradition of bad fashion choices. And this doesn't help.
