Civilization Is Crumbling: “Jeggings” Added To The Oxford English Dictionary

Guys, we have some problems. The list of new words in the 2011 Oxford English Dictionary is out, and not only has “jegging” made the cut, but “mankini” is also now officially an acceptable term. A couple of other disturbing non-fashion words that passed muster? “Cyberbullying,” “sexting,” and “retweet.” It’s not so much that we object to the words entering the dictionary–it’s more that “jegging” and “mankini” being acknowledged by Oxford means that they are real things that are likely going to be around for a long time.

By wrapping a strip of adhesive tape around myself in different ways I found one that worked. The look it gave me was so nice I decided to make a few to wear under clothes.”

Oh, to be a fly on the wall in that designer’s studio. And don’t feel left out, dudes. There’s a mankini version, too! So normal. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

The Mankini: Hot or Not?

Men have many options when it comes to showing some skin this summer: board shorts, classic speedos, spandex hot pants, banana hammocks, and now the mankini. While Borat and John Mayer have made the mankini a laughing stock in lime green, at the recent Alexander McQueen menswear show in Milan, the tan and black is so cutting edge it looks like the future, like something one of the guys on Star Trek would wear. Maybe not Captain Jean-Luc Piccard, he’s totally a sporty shorty kinda guy. However, a guy like Geordi LaForge would definitely make the mankini swoon. But is this look realistically rockable for the modern mman? [Wake Up America] Keep reading »
