No longer will we have to wade through the hordes of thousands pouring into SoHo that one night a year in the fall. No longer will we be disappointed by the alcohol-hoarding teens stealing all the booze at shops. Because, thanks to these same teens, Fashion’s Night Out has been cancelled for the coming fall.

Ryan Lochte was definitely not one of those gold medalists who simply bowed out of the spotlight after scoring big at the 2012 Olympics. Upon leaving London, reports of the swimmer starring in his own reality show and snagging cameos on a number of shows, including ‘30 Rock‘ and ‘90210,’ began pouring out of the woodworks; and he even got the opportunity to report on New York Fashion Week for E!.

Who knew Lochte, who’s essentially turning into the Brad Gronkowski-playa’ type of the swimming world, was interested in style, let alone becoming the next pop culture icon? But it turns out his passion for fashion extends far beyond his recent NYFW gig.

Digital Media Editor of The Daily Telegraph Emma Barnett was cleaning her house this past weekend and found a new pair of chinos her boyfriend bought for himself from the UK brand Madhouse. As if it wasn’t bad enough that he’d left them on the floor as someone else’s problem, stitched inside the pant was a white patch with unusual washing instructions:

“Machine wash warm. Inside out with like colors… Or GIVE IT TO YOUR WOMAN, It’s Her Job.”

Whether it was intended as a joke by the manufacturers or simply a way for grabbing some extra media attention for the company, this message has sparked a frenzy across the Internet, especially on Twitter.
