Mexican Independence Day is Around the Corner: Show Some Respect and Dress Accordingly

mexicans

I don’t know about you, but I do take national holidays very seriously, especially when it comes to drinking and eating like there’s no tomorrow.

So, in celebration of my very recent double-citizenship bonanza, I am pulling all my U.S.-based resources to list the very best stuff you can buy on THIS SIDE of the border to wear on September 15 and feel as if you were on the OTHER side of the border.

Please note that some of this stuff is very likely Made in China and will not last another September 15th, but who the hell cares? Get them all now, and join me tomorrow in yelling: ¡Viva México, cabrones!

Now, on to the day’s relevant clothing…

The simply-awesome Mexico leggings –and green shoes:

Pobre águila, but OK

The more subtle, millennial-oriented Mexican leggings:

Online Leggins

The Mexico-inspired Converse sneakers:

Ideal for when someone yells '¡Ahí viene la migra!'

And now… ‘Chiles en Nogada’ in a Box: Because Nothing Is Sacred Anymore

What the hell is this?

Move over, tamales en bolsita…

Mexican “food” corporation Dysal S.A. de C.V. — which caters to clients including Walmart and Costco, of course — has come up with this abomination: Ready-to-microwave chiles en nogada… in a box, which I’m sure will be soon available on Amazon.com and the like.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll go hang myself.
