How To Buy A Dude A Sweater He’ll Actually Like

The sweater may seem like a standard, almost impersonal gift. Done right, though, it's the ideal present -- it's practical, attractive and will actually be used. That said, year after year of going with guy friends to return their hideous sweaters for other things has taught me a bit about how not to eff it…

Is There A Male Equivalent To The LBD?

Women's fashion may be more complicated than men's style, but we do have the LBD going for us. The little black dress, which magically gets you through work, black-tie events, and pretty much any party. And it's this time of year that the LBD becomes most used and handy. Poor guys, they have far fewer…

How To Buy Coats For Dudes

My friend here (left) is wearing a good-looking coat today. It's simple with interesting seams and subtle hardware. I shouldn't be so impressed, but I am, mostly because dudes are generally not known for their outerwear selection abilities. I'm not entirely sure why, but it's always been my experience that most boys seem to consider…

Chest Hair Is Back With A Vengeance

They say everything old is new again and that's not just for leg warmers and neon ... male chest hair is back from the '70s with a vengeance! (The cutesy term for chest hair is "heavage," but that sounds like what happened after I drank four shots of vodka for the first time.) The popularity…

Could Skirts For Guys Really Catch On This Time?

H&M appears to be dipping its toes into the cross-dressing (or Scottish? Marc Jacobs?) trend pool. The retailer's Spring lookbook includes, yes, skirts for men. Sigh. Well, looks like they're going to have some competition, seeing as the kilt industry has really stepped up its game to include tuxedo, workman, and casual styles. H&M's versio…

Win This: Free Company 81 Clothes For Your Boo

Being girly girls and all, we don't know much about Company 81, except that it reminds us a lot of Abercrombie and American Eagle, but seems to be of higher quality and yet way more affordable at the same time. While combing the shops for gifts for guys, we've turned up all kinds of fu…

Like Your Guy In A Scarf?

In the past, there have been two types of men who wear scarves. Those who want to keep warm. And those who want to wear scarves because, um, you know, they're extra fashionable. Now, however, with acceptance of gender-bending/andro/metrosexual fashion, things are changing, and the scarf has made its way into guys' closets as a…

Enough Already With The Totally Ridiculous Men’s Fashion!

Oak, a fashion-forward store in New York City, has been pulling out the ridiculous men's fashions lately. First, we found this T-shirt thingy by Complex Geometries. And now, we've come across this $110-shredded shirt by CMRTYZ, which reminds me of the "True Blood" scenes where Maryann Forrester rips people's backs apart. That being said, I…

Brooks Brothers’ Limited Edition “Mad Men” Suit

What's sexier—your guy dressing up as Don Draper for Halloween or him dressing like that regularly just because? We'd vote for both, but now male "Mad Men" fans have the option to be dapper Don every day thanks to Brooks Brothers' limited-edition "Mad Men" suit. Created by Janie Bryant, the show's costume designer, the ensemble…

Liam Gallagher Has New Clothing Line, Doesn’t Care If You Like It

Liam Gallagher must've observed Lindsay Lohan's design trials and tribulations, and decided, "Hey, if she can do it, I can too." He has a new clothing line in the works called Pretty Green and even filmed this highly informative promotional video! It's packed full of fantastically narcissistic insightful quotes and Zoolander-esque moments involving brooding and…

Get A Swine Flu-Repellent Suit If You Have Money To Waste

Haruyama Trading Co. has produced 50,000 suits that are coated with the chemical titanium dioxide, which reacts with light and destroys the virus, according to a company spokesperson. Titanium dioxide is a common ingredient in toothpaste and cosmetics. The suit…

Men’s Fashion Don’t #231: Annie Hall Pants

Let us add this to the list of things we never want to see our boyfriends wearing: baggy, Annie Hall-style khaki pants. Here's a reminder that some menswear looks are better suited (heh) for the ladies. Guys, if you want to go ahead and rock out with your Dockers out, be our guest. We'll eve…

A Tie For The Guy Who Goes For Sloppy Seconds

Not to "go there" with gender stereotyping, but whoever said men are pigs knew what they were talking about. Or at least, they'd spent enough time watching the way some guys eat and witnessed the disgusting massacre of their meals. (OK, to be fair, girls can be equally disgusting; we'll cop to that.) For the…

The Return Of Men’s Earrings?

OK, so if you think about hippie ear plugs and rapper swag style, man jewelry hasn't really gone anywhere. (Mewelry? Guylery? Man bling? Mling? But we digress ...) According to The New York Times' The Moment blog, man earrings are coming back from their heyday in the '90s, and this time, with a slightly different…

Dudes Can’t Wait To Get Their Legs In Mantyhose!

"This winter the city's most stylish men will have a secret weapon hidden in their trousers." No, no, no, get your mind out of the gutter, kids! That's David Walker-Smith, the director of menswear and beauty of the famous London department store Selfridges, commenting on the fact that the huge (ha) new craze amongst British…
