Boyfriend Present: $53 McQueen Man Panties

Before his death last month, designer Alexander McQueen was working on a line of men's underwear or, as we'll refer to them, manties. We feel the creations deserve a name of their own, not just because their creator was an awesome man, but also because they're a bit too snazzy to just be…

Fashion Glasses Aren’t Just For Girls

I'm a recent convert to the fake glasses trend; however, I'm careful about the circumstances in which I wear them. I won't, for example, wear them on a date, because I've pictured the humiliation and implications of being unmasked—I imagine a guy would be slightly weirded out and would start questioning what else about…

The “Wipe Shirt”: It’s Not What You Think

The fabric is ideal for cleaning glasses, so instead of oiling up hi…

Here’s What Happens When Musicians Style A Shoot

All you need to know: The boys from Brooklyn band Yeasayer, shirtless in all their pale, undefined, nerdy, hipster glory. Mason jars of beer and tequila. Tattered shreds of denim constructed as a dress and/or apron (they're still not sure): "This is the ugliest boho dress ever ... We didn’t know what we were supposed…

Japan’s Latest Men’s Fashion Trend Is Sexist, Thug-Inspired

According to The Senken, "The most widely read fashion daily in Japan" (I'd never heard of it either until I was handed a copy at Paris Fashion Week), the latest men's fashion craze is a style called "OraOra," which "comes from a sound Japanese people make when threatening someone." As such, the general theme…

Does Anybody Wear Ties Anymore?

The L.A. Times is reporting that the neck tie industry is in serious decline, and they are blaming a slew of people we never thought would impact the fashion world.

Guys At The Grammys Teach Dudes How Not To Dress Up

At the Grammys last night, most of the ladies in attendance kept it real. Rihanna looked like a gorgeous, badass swan; Beyonce had all sorts of elegant booty all over the place; hell, even Pink turned up looking like a classy broad, ballgown and all. We wish we could say that the…

Gone Are The Days Of Tweed And Trenches In The Journalist’s Uniform—Bring On The Muscles

America is used to seeing CNN's Anderson Cooper in a suit and Dr. Sanjay Gupta similarly dressed, or even in a lab coat. So when the two reporters recently appeared on-air from Haiti dressed in muscle-bearing tight t-shirts, they (perhaps inadvertently) sparked a debate about how journalists should be dressing. Laments the New York…

Why Good Men Wear Bad Jeans

Why is it that men repeatedly make the same fashion faux pas, and even when they get called out, manage to get away with it? Just because everyone hated Obama's mom jeans doesn't mean they disappeared from the repertoire of men's style. (Unfortunately.) New York Times fashion writer Guy Trebay attempts to unravel…

Has American Apparel Gone Preppy?

Is that ... could these really be ... American Apparel models? But they're not wearing plaid, thick glasses, or neon. These boys actually look kind of preppy. And dare we even say it? Hot. Among American Apparel's latest men's collection are some decidedly non-hipster looks that we haven't quite seen from the retailer before.

Sequins For Men?

The staff of Dazed Digital got a sneak peek at some of the goods from Louis Vuitton's men's collection. The spring 2010 line apparently includes these very shiny dress shoes covered in silver sequins. As far as sequins in men's fashion go, they've thankfully stayed put in the closets of Chippendale's dancers. Is thi…
