This Exists: Garter Belts For Guys

So here we are again. The ever-persisting problem of men who think baggy pants are still suh-weet. Recently, we heard about a high school which has taken to “Urkeling” offending students—making kids with too-baggy pants wear suspenders and forcing them to hike their trousers up high, Steve Urkel-style. Sadly, this invention you see before you—”Subs,” or garter belts for guys—isn’t here to eradicate baggy pants. Instead the “Subs” creator wanted to give men who like the down-low style some extra security. The belt goes around the waist and then clips onto a pant waistband so that the wearer can let his jeans hang low without them falling off. Well, that’s at least something, right?

Would You Wear Visible Garter Belts?

All those terrifying pictures of Taylor Momsen and now some fashion blogs calling out visible garters as a trend has us scratching our heads a bit. On the one hand, garter belts are pretty damn hot. On the other, though, we really can’t quite imagine wearing them so visibly, let alone in public during the day. Under a pencil skirt barely visible when you move the right way at night, maybe. With a school girl skirt fully exposed at the office? Maybe not so much. What do you think? Would you try this look or are garter belts better reserved for the bedroom?

Would You Wear Visible Garter Belts To Work?

Oh Taylor Momsen, you’ve come such a far way from your Missouri roots and playing sweet little Cindy Lou Who in “How The Grinch Stole Christmas.” The grunge rock look has been a fairly recent style move (we see her strutting around in crack rock chic in N.Y.C.’s East Village all the time), and while she’s been spotted wearing this pantsless look and garters often enough lately, she has finally gone where even the sassiest (and sluttiest) of hip downtown chicks will not: She wore her Undie Sue look on her way to the set of “Gossip Girl” today. In the morning. In the middle of winter. Eh, maybe it was just a walk of shame. Keep reading »

Introducing The Thiphone, The Modern Garter

Used to be that ladies would store flasks of hooch in their garters. Nowadays, we’re as easily intoxicated by the iPhone, so we have the Thiphone, a leg mount for your gadget. It comes in black, red, or pink, so you can color-coordinate to look extra geeky. Love it! [$29.95, Thiphone.com] Keep reading »

Trends For Men: Garter Belts To Hold Up His Thigh-Highs!

Even after the mantyhose, skirts for men, bras for bros, girdles for guys, and Spanx just for dad, it’s still totally crazy and absurd to think about a man wearing a lacy garter around his thigh. My assumption was that men who wear garter belts must be cross-dressers or into the whole fetish thing. Right? But maybe I’m being narrow-minded over here. After all, John Galliano had male models rocking garter belts during his Fall 2009 runway show (above), and a company called Comfilon sells them along with thigh high stockings (see pic after the jump).

The Frisky Girl’s Guide to Wearing Lingerie

The night before Valentine’s Day this year, I received a frantic text message from my friend Sara, who I knew was on a mission to pick up something frilly to wear for her new boyfriend. “OMG, I’m in the store and I don’t even know what the eff a garter belt is. Help…” I flipped open my cell phone and left her a message that was one for the books: “Sara,” I said sternly, “if you don’t know what a garter belt is, he sure as hell won’t know how to take one off. Look for a babydoll top and cute underwear. Step AWAY from the garter belts.” Keep reading »
