Men! There are plenty of things about women that they don’t understand, but they really, really don’t understand what goes into our appearances.

Oh boys — isn’t it adorable when they start learning how to take care of themselves? For example, take the Scottish dudes behind the Gentlemen’s Sewing Club — a new monthly night of drinking and sewing that takes place in Glasgow. Male members learn everything from hemming and sewing on buttons, to alterations and simple pattern cutting. They’ll also be “sharing tips and stories about being modern gentlemen.”

Aw, men be doing things for themselves. Seriously, this club sounds totally the cutest. And their official club drink is the whiskey sour. [Gentlemen Sewing]

"I'm thinking about really terrible things."

Dudes seem to find a way to compete about everything: money, cars, who has the biggest beer belly. So it’s no surprise that Brett Hoff of magazine Wholphin dreamed up a Crying Competition where the rules state that the first tear to hit the table wins. “This might be the least fun I’ve ever had on the beach,” says one participant. It turns out, these guys suck at crying — and are easily shown up by the film’s female producer when it comes to shedding tears. [Laughing Squid]

Track jackets are sporty. Leather jackets are dangerous. Yellowjackets are annoying. But a tweed jacket? Oh, a tweed jacket is the best jacket of all. Jackets and sport coats in tweed are intriguing–they’ve got a rich texture and a nice weight. Tweed has brilliant connotations: it is the preferred fabric of professors and writers. It adds an intelligent vibe to any outfit that you just don’t get from a slouchy hoodie. Whether worn with matching trousers or thrown over a plaid shirt and jeans, a tweed jacket looks mature, masculine, and put-together. Tweed is a classic fabric that feels thoroughly modern. And in case you couldn’t tell, we’re really excited to see this classic menswear piece make a comeback. [Slim Fit Tweed Jacket, $85, ASOS]

After hours in front of my laptop, my back is usually gnarled into a “C” shape. I’ve learned to remedy the Ladyblogging Hunchback with some yoga. But this afternoon, when I checked the schedule and read the instructor’s name, Matthew, I started making excuses not to go. I don’t know Matthew, but I might have felt differently if his name were Melissa or Miranda. It isn’t just about my fear of a dude adjusting my warrior pose, it’s a pattern. I have always been like this — with male dentists, doctors, therapists, even Santa Claus. Why am I scared of men? Keep reading »
