“Men With Fancy Lady Hair” Is Pretty Much The Best Thing Ever

Writer Jessica Saia thought it was really unfair that women get to style their long locks into all manner of complicated buns, braids, and updos, while long-haired men "spend years getting their manes all long and for what?

What To Do If You Hate The Way Your Partner Dresses

The 20 Weirdest Fashion Moments From The Spring 2014 Menswear Collections

Men's fashion shows don't have the heightened sense of excitement and titillation around them that women's collections do. Perhaps that's because it's so highly unlikely that a dick will ever accidentally flop out on the runway the way a boob does. Or maybe it's because it's less socially acceptable for men to preen and pluck…

Swedish Train Drivers Find A Solution To “No Shorts Policy” — Skirts

After male employees on Sweden's Roslagsbanna commuter line were told they were prohibited from wearing shorts, they came up with a workaround solution: Skirts.

Justin Bieber, Psy, Ed Sheeran and a Bieber lookalike by the name of Austin Mahone all attended the Hot 99.5 Jingle Ball in DC last night. And all were, predictably, dressed like total idiots.

Uh Oh: Magazines Make Dudes Feel Insecure, Too

I love GQ magazine. There are some really good writers and they generally have well-written and researched features. They also have a style column, written by punk rock icon (he made the film "Downtown 81") Glenn O'Brien. O'Brien provides fairly no nonsense sartorial advice on things like how to wear a bowtie and whether or…
