The Tricky Sideburns Vs. Hotness Matrix

It must be difficult for the menfolk to figure out just how long to keep their sideburns. Too long, and they risk being mistaken for a member of a mid-'90s modern rock band. Too short, and we'll assume you've been locked away in your parent's basement with only your World of Warcraft to keep your…

Your Boyfriend Really Wants Pajama Jeans For Christmas

No seriously, your boyfriend saw these two hot studs maxing and relaxing in pajama jeans -- replete with stone-washed effect and faux-ripped detailing -- and told me to tell you that he craves that level of comfort, style and jazzy good times. [The Stir]…

We’re Breaking Up: You’re Wearing A Tiny Knit Ear Hat

No Steve, it's not because you never take your knit hat off and your hair smells like a combination of bacon grease and stale popcorn. No, it's that you thought the perfect knit hat accoutrement would be another, tinier knit hat -- for your ears. I would try using something like logic on you --…

Pay No Attention To The Skirt

Yup, the fashion was pretty fabulous at today's Fashion Forward fashion show. The event, hosted by former Rachel Zoe BFF Brad Goreski, benefited the Gay Men's Health Crisis. And fans of men in skirts.

Who Wears Short Shorts? Bill Clinton!

I'm kind of obsessed with this embarrassing photo of Bill Clinton and Al Gore from the '90s. I happen to think the former president was, is, and always will be a stone cold fox.  I refuse to be ashamed! Nothing is sexier than a man with brains, clout, and a history of infidelity.

The Situation’s Got A Really Tacky Tuxedo Situation

Wondering what your high school boyfriend's going to be wearing to Prom this year? Look no further than Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's new line of tuxedos, FLOW Formalwear.

Men In Sexy Lady Model Poses

We can all agree that model poses are totally ridiculous. And as if you needed another example of just how stupid they are--here photographer Rion Sabean has taken a series of shots of guys in traditional dude get ups posed in traditional female model poses. Way to subvert the dominant gender paradigm, guys! Check out…

6 Men’s Fashion Trends We Love

Men's fashion trends are really hit and miss. Remember JNCO jeans, for example? Or button-up shirts with silver dragons printed across the back? So upsetting. Lately, though, men's trends have been on point. From workboots to elbow patches, here is a roundup of some of the current men's looks we're loving. Keep up the…

7 Guys Who Just Don’t Look Right With Hair

How can you tell George Costanza is entering a room? From the little bit of light shining off his bald spot. Sure, it might not be the most desirable characteristic, but it made the otherwise-horrible George slightly endearing. So we were kind of shocked when, last week, actor Jason Alexander showed up to an event…

Just A Hot Skateboarder In Designer Clothing

As discussed, I have a predilection for skater dudes. And so when I saw this video starring pro skateboarder Kilian Martin skating in a variety of hot fashions from Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani and John Varvatos, I felt it was my duty to share. [Definitive Touch]…

Vogue Editor Doesn’t Like it When Men Dress Up

"I dislike men in fashion. I don't like it when a man dresses as a fashionista. I don't think it's attractive at all. Women in fashion, on the other hand, are very attractive. Women can always make you dream." --Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani, expressing yet another one of her controversial opinions on all thing…

Do A Man’s Exposed Ankles Excite You?

Now that the temperature has finally begun to warm up, more men seem to be cuffing their pants. This gives them the opportunity to show off their shoes and gives the overall look a more casual feel. But cuffed pants also expose the ankles, an area of a man's leg we usually only see if…

I Want Ben Minkoff

Meet the newest object of my affection: the Gregger Leather Tote. Gregger (yes we're on a first name basis already) is part of the Ben Minkoff collection, Rebecca Minkoff's latest line of men's bags. This tote has a modern military vibe and a removable laptop sleeve. The rest of the collection include leather…

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…

Men’s Fashion Is Looking Very Nordic This Winter—Yay Or Nay?

The New York Times points out that men's sweaters are looking very folksy and Nordic this year, backing up their claim with examples by Topman and Ralph Lauren. We're down with this slightly retro style for the ladies. It recalls all the goodness of winter—cabins, wood fires, skiing, snow. How do we feel about…

Relevant Now: Commando Kilt-Wearing

As you may have already heard, today is "Opt Out Day," in which people intend to protest the TSA naked x-ray machines by refusing to go through them and instead get a pat down. Some have even called for more drastic measures—Jeffrey Goldberg at the Atlantic has come up with the brilliant idea…

Refinery 29 put me on to Street Etiquette, a men's street fashion blog run by two gentlemen from the Bronx, Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs.

Mind Of Man: So Long As It’s Clean, Does It Matter What We Wear?

Let’s all agree that one thing that separates the sexes is the fact that women like to dress up in fancy clothes and look pretty and men also like it when women dress up in fancy clothes and look pretty. But men, however, do not like to dress up in fancy clothes and look pretty.

Would You Let Your Guy Wear The Male Romper?

We already told you that we do not want the adult BabyGro for ladies, but we want our man to wear the dude version even less. The guy version of the OnePiece features a snowflake design and a kangaroo pocket. We're not sure how combining this manages to equal cool. But maybe you think…
