Welcome to Would You Rather, a game in which we concoct hypothetical style dilemmas and ask you to choose which option’s worse.
Even though Talbots has gotten a bit more with-it in recent years, it still doesn’t take away from the fact that your mom eagerly awaits the arrival of the store’s catalogue in her mailbox each month. You’d certainly make her very happy to be clad in khakis on the cover.
