Finally, A Designer Fashion Collection For Marine Biologists!

A lot of times I’ll glance through the season’s runway collections and think, Isn’t anyone thinking of the marine biologists?! Like Christopher Walken’s “SNL” character demanded more cowbell, I say, “More bedazzled lobsters and embroidered whales!” And finally–finally–a designer has stepped up to the plate. Thom Browne’s S/S 13 menswear collection is chock full of sea…

TopShop’s Newest TopMan Collection Ensures Wearers Will Never See A Vagina

Rarely does TopShop do anything egregiously wrong — on the women’s side of its operation, at least. But on the men’s side? Well, there’s a reason why TopMan is lagging far behind its female counterpart in sales and hype. You can see what I mean by taking a look at TopMan’s latest offerings — a…

Love It Or Leave It: Colored Denim For Men

I’m a pretty big fan of the colorful jeans trend–the brighter the better!–but this morning, when I saw a guy rocking a pair of bright red skinny jeans, I must admit I did a double take. I hadn’t realized the trend had also been translated to menswear, but a quick online search revealed that colored…

Meet Our Pinterest Boyfriends!

If you’re on Pinterest, you know that pictures of hot guys are always circulating around the site. Some of these gorgeous men are models, some are impeccably dressed street style subjects, and some are just random dudes. We’ve gotten kind of attached to some of these guys–whom Amelia refers to as our Pinterest Boyfriends–and we…

Dude Looks We Love: Slouchy Hobbit Pants

The other day, my boyfriend went underwear shopping and I insisted on coming along because I would never pass up an opportunity to hear grown men discuss the best ways to flatter and support their Charlie Browns. After he picked out some new undies, we headed to the cash register, but on the way I…

An Open Letter To The Modern Man Who Wears A Monocle

Dear Monocle Man,

This morning, Jessica sent me a link to the Warby Parker website, alerting me to the fact that for a mere $50 it is possible to buy a prescription monocle. This realization made me unreasonably upset. Maybe it’s because I live in Portland and the implications of thousands of steampunk…

An Examination Of The One Direction Boys’ Hairstyle Magic

Maybe you’ve heard of this British pop band One Direction? Perhaps you have a tweenage sister that’s begging you to take her to their concert? As far as we can tell, they’re just latest boy band iteration, this time masterminded by “X-Factor” and “American Idol” svengali Simon Cowell. As such, we’re not particularly interested i…

Photoshop Failure: Trouble In J. Crew-Land

Take a gander at this J. Crew online catalog image (that’s since been removed) and try and guess what might have happened here. Is it a hot dog bun that the model was surreptitiously hiding in his pants until the right moment? A poor assistant’s fingers that somehow escaped the airbrusher’s skilled eyes? Or something

‘Mantyhose’ Is Happening!

Apparently some dudes are into wearing fancy tights these days, according to upscale hosiery retailer Emilio Cavallini, who tellsWWD that purchases by men (and for men) now account for 2 to 3 percent of their annual sales. He noticed the trend about three years ago:
When we started our online shop we noticed that a lot of…

10 Underwear Styles A Dude Shouldn’t Be Caught Dead In (NSFW)

Manties: will they ever cease to be entertaining? Especially when they are made of beef jerky. And bedazzled with rhinestones. And rumored to mix perfectly with ball sweat to enhance natural male pheromones. No, they will not. You can buy your man a pair of these tasty, meat haute couture Brief Jerkies on Etsy for…

15 Male Models Who Are Not Amused

It’s probably part of the male model’s job description to look bored and annoyed, but some of the male models at London Fashion Week really seem to be perfecting their craft. These guys go beyond bored and listless and offer a veritable cornucopia of scorn, disdain and withering condescension. All while wearing very stupid outfits.

A Ring On A Guy’s Right Hand: What Does It All Mean?

Last weekend, I was out at a bar with a girlfriend. We were catching up; we weren’t looking to meet anyone. Mid-conversation, we noticed that the two cute guys at the other end of the bar were looking at us. Girlish blushing, furtive looks, gossipy chit-chat ensued. Yes, they were definitely checking us out. One,…

Dude Looks We Love: Tweed Jackets

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…

Dude Looks We Love: The Well-Chosen Sock

Sock choice is often determined by a blind grab from the sock drawer 5 minutes before you’re out the door. And that’s fine–we live in a fastpaced world, socks are an admittedly trivial part of our daily lives–but it is also exactly why a well-chosen pair of socks make such a big impact. Men’s style…

You’re All A Beautiful Bunch Of Gimps, Really

Ladies, ladies, back up, there’s enough crazy gimp man meat for everyone. There’s furry gimp, jolly green gimp, abstract art gimp — and everybody’s favorite —  plaid destiny. If you want special time with him, there’s a six- to eight-week wait. Sorry, I don’t make the rules, I just enforce. (Actually, these are models from

13 Transgressive Looks From Thom Browne

Oh hi, I didn’t see you there. I was busy salivating over the Fall 2012 menswear collection from my favorite wackadoodle designer Thom Browne. Mr. Browne — he of the lobster claw arms from Spring 2012 — is famous for his transgressive take on fashion and the body. Browne plays with proportion and male archetype…

Ooh Baby, It’s Cold On This Runway

God bless Vivienne Westwood: Her Fall/Winter 2012 fashion show put a chill on the faces of the poor male models sent down the runway. The boys were forced to wear fake — and in some cases, real — icicle beards. The look was apparently an homage to British naturalist David Attenborough and his documentary “Froze…

A Bunch Of Famous Guys Walked In Prada’s Show

If you’re Miuccia Prada, you don’t get just anybody to walk in your fashion show. No, no, you enlist some of your famous friends — like Tim Roth, Willem Dafoe and Emile Hirsch — to pretty themselves up and walk the catwalk for your Fall/Winter 2012 collection. Keep clicking to see who channeled their inner…

Men Needed A Rap About Plaid

Well, well, holy nerds, what do we have here? It appears that a bunch of bros have discovered an untapped niche — the plaid shirt-wearing demo. And here, they rap all about their love for the ubiquitous pattern. I’ll just be over here in the corner eating a P’Zone and crying on the inside. [YouTube]…

Guy Fieri Designed A Line Of Men’s Jewelry, Naturally

Questions for Guy Fieri, regarding his new line of men’s jewelry. Does this line include barbecue sauce, or barbecue sauce-flavored gems? If not, why? What about a container for hot sauce or a secret compartment for other choice condiments? Was your intention in creating the line to enable ladies to quickly and swiftly identify the…
