Male Nail Polish Paints The Town Red In Berlin

Gone are the days of Marilyn Manson's goth-rock and black lacquered nails (we would hope). But apparently nail polish for dudes is experiencing a European revival in a much more colorful way. Makeup line Uslu Airlines has come out with a manicure product branded for men in participation with Berlin DJs and urban culture figures.

Would You Date A Guy Who Wears Heels?

Today, the U.K.'s Telegraph is running a photo gallery of men's shoes that will give the shorties some height. (Side question: do guys wear lifts anymore?) Most of the newspaper's picks aren't too offensive, but the pair pictured above by Schuh definitely has a dramatic heel that's a bit costume-y. Besides wishing we'd thought of…

Pierced Fashion Models—Sketch Or Trendsetting?

A Swedish fashion line called The Local Firm has released photographs of their Fall 2009 collection—and all of the models are seriously pierced up. I don't know about you but I end up looking at the piercing way more than the actual clothes! Not that the images are all that shocking, really. Let's be seriou…

J.Crew Introduces “Jack” Style Consultant For Guys

When it comes to objective advice, sometimes friends can't be trusted. This is especially true when the pals are dudes, and the topic is fashion. Now, style-challenged men can find direction with "Jack Knows Best," J. Crew's new style consulting service. Guys can now ask Jack -- a trusty wingman type -- shopping questions such…

iTie iPod Holder Frees Up Dudes’ Pockets

Save for the murse-carrying set, somehow guys manage to carry the world in their pockets. How they do it is beyond us. But maybe it's because they're just more creative than we think, and have secret hiding places. Like this dapper device, the iTie, which features a covert pocket on the backside, in which to…

Fashion Industry Rallies To Make Men’s Skinny Jeans More Comfy

The war on men's skinny jeans is, er, loosening, just not in the way you'd exactly hoped. Denim companies like Levi's and True Religion have seen huge increases in the sale of their tight pants for guys (thanks, Pete Wentz). But in a move that seems more responsive than any we've seen for women, these…

Oh Hell No: Denim Tube Tops For Men!

Oh, Jean-Paul Gautier, you never cease to entertain. At his Spring 2010 menswear show the designer has a few of his male models strut down the runway in denim tube tops. While I don't think this is a trend that will trickle down to the masses, will fashion-obsessed celebs like Kanye West embrace it? Gue…

Is That A Sailboat On Your Lapel, Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

Besides their bachelor party and, of course, getting the girl, grooms don't get to have much fun throughout the whole wedding experience. But thanks to San Francisco-based bespoke boutonniere-maker Fritts Rosenow, grooms and their entourage can have a little excitement up on their lapels. The company will make a custom boutonniere based on the the…

For the man on a Missoni: Converse, the iconic old-school kicks, are about to get a major designer upgrade thanks to a collaboration with Missoni. The collection, "Premium Chuck Hi Missoni" for Spring 2010 takes the basic hi-top and slaps the classic zig-zag print on them to create two varieties—one with black laces and purple-grey…

The “Medge” Makes An Unfortunate Return

Last summer, we told you about the male wedge, a.k.a. the "medge." We're happy we didn't see any average men wearing these shoes, but then we came across this year's version from Acne. We've decided these are ten times worse than the original medge we spotted at the Fendi fashion show nearly a year ago.

The Trouble With Kanye

If you know anything about Kanye, you know he loves his Balenciaga sandals and neon. Some people think he looks moronic. Some people think he looks awesome. Apparently, some people think he looks "gay." Blogger Elizabeth Gates at the Daily Beast noticed how homophobic and racially motivated some commenters' replies were about recent paparazzi sna…

The Willy Warmer Sweater Thong

Men and lingerie don't usually go together unless there's a woman in the mix. But now that we've come across the mantyhose, garter belts for men, bras for men, male girdles and Spanx for guys, we're convinced that retailers are targeting this neglected demographic. We've discovered one more weird piece of male lingerie: the Willy

Trends For Men: Garter Belts To Hold Up His Thigh-Highs!

Even after the mantyhose, skirts for men, bras for bros, girdles for guys, and Spanx just for dad, it's still totally crazy and absurd to think about a man wearing a lacy garter around his thigh. My assumption was that men who wear garter belts must be cross-dressers or into the whole fetish thing. Right?

Quickies!: A New Name For Hot Guys With Beards

A field guide to the metrognome. [Jezebel] Wendy Whitaker was deemed a sex offender 10 years ago for giving her 16-year-old boyfriend a blow job when she was 17.

Gross Guy Trend: The Medge

At the men's fashion shows in Milan, an interesting new shoe style for men appeared: the male wedge, aka the "medge." We hope Tom Cruise is the only one who adopts this style. (Sidenote: When you do a search for "male wedge," Google says, "Did you mean: male wedgie". Ha.) [The Times, U.K.]…

Slideshow: Men’s Fashion Trends We Totally Like

Maybe we were a little hard on the fellas yesterday, with our slideshow of fashion trends we hate for them to wear...but you gotta admit, you agreed with us at least on the mandles, right? Anyway, in the interest of preserving the peace between The Frisky and, uh, mankind, we've put together a slideshow of…
