I'm Catholic, so I must beg, Father, for you to please forgive me for what I am about to do—namely, show you stills from a clergy fashion catalog that bring all new meaning to the phrase "dad bods."
British Twitter user Abi Bleach found these stills from the Wippell's catalog, which has been outfitting clergymen since, literally, the 18th century (Europe is SO OLD, y'all).
And all I'll say is that the blonde priest in these pictures is inspiring more than one deadly sin in me.
Perhaps even more delightful than these pictures is the response from some actual clerics.
A BREASTFEEDING CASSOCK. Plus, there is this crushable cleric selfie.
Accordingf to the J. Wippell & Co website:
"Since 1789 we have established a reputation that is second to none throughout the World for supplying goods and services to Church and Clergy of the finest possible quality.
"This reputation has been built upon the trust, appreciation and satisfaction of many generations of customers and we feel sure that when you browse through the following pages you will also wish to entrust us with your instructions."
"Our extensive range precludes holding all our on-line products in stock for dispatch by return. The majority of items are made to order and we will advise dispatch date when known."
*Gives self the sign of the cross.*
