Most of us who have dads are probably familiar with the concept of dad jeans, those super cool, light-washed, high-waisted jeans dads love to buy at JC Penney’s. My dad loves some Dad Jeans — his favorite varietal is a gently faded black jean that goes great with his plaid shirt of choice and an anonymous black shoe. And then there’s Dad Jeans in popular culture: Jerry Seinfeld, Tim Taylor from “Home Improvement” (worn with smug smile), or Louis C.K., an actual dad who is also a nerdy, funny, middle-aged man.
Suddenly, Dad Jeans Are A Thing, a thing worth writing about in the New York Times Style section. The renewed interest in Dad Jeans is probably attributable to one thing — the ever-snarling Ouroboros that is fashion. It’s so uncool, say Dad Jeans advocates, that it is suddenly Coolness Ground Zero and how could you ever not want to wear Dad Jeans, you cool-as-fuck hipster? Keep reading »
“Chiffon” and “crocodile” are two words I have never before seen occupying the same sentence. Well, Hermes must have noticed, because they’ve officially tapped into the niche “things that are made of chiffon, and also of crocodile” market that there is such a massive demand for. Hermes is just the best like that, you know? Those patron saints of all the stuff you really need whipped up this super-awesome men’s t-shirt crafted from “an innovative lightweight dyed crocodile,” which sounds kinda sweaty. It’s also retailing at the totally reasonable price of $91,500 at the brand’s Madison Avenue store, right next to a whole range of other chiffon crocodile shirts running from $60,000-$100,000. Which, psh. Pocket change. I have that tucked into my bra right now, don’t you? I will be sorely disappointed if Scott Disick isn’t photographed wearing this in a few weeks’ time. In the meantime, here’s some other stuff you could buy for $91,500, you dummy. [Fashionista] Keep reading »
Guys have a lot of trouble dressing stylishly, no? Some are a bit to Johnny Tries Too Hard, and others wouldn’t know a cufflink if it bit them on the face (cufflinks usually don’t bite, but you never know). Enter Menswear Dog, a sartorially-inclined fashion animal, ready to set the malefolk of the world straight. Check out a couple more of his tips after the jump! [Mashable] Keep reading »
Niall Horan is one of the five adorable preteens or talking penguins or whatever in One Direction. He has a zillion fans and likely a lot of money. But yet he decided to wear this abomination of a sweatshirt in public. Isn’t there a creepy Lou Pearlman-like figure around to prevent this from happening?
Guys, I have a really tough job. I have to spend part of today ogling hot male models, looking for cool new menswear looks from the Paris fashion shows. Shed a few tears for me, will you? I’ve slaved over this gallery of hot guys in looks we love, just for you. Take a look, please.
Let’s take a few guesses as to what this model, walking the DSquared runway at Pitti Uomo, might have stored underneath his bulbous headwear, shall we? Keep reading »
Meggings. We’ve written about them before, but I felt the need to dredge up the awful man-leggings trend, because I’ve just received an email from meggings proponents B-Skinz, showing me the lastest and greatest in meggings technology: Behold these fugly-ass rainbow meggings
Or, okay, as they’re technically called “psychedelic jungle meggings.” Keep reading »
My boyfriend is a stylish dude. He works in fashion and he dresses like a total dandy. As such, I have very little sense of what is normal guy fashion. Like, take this Mike Ruiz for J.Cheikh blazer. I think it’s amazing, and I’d be stoked if my boyfriend had the balls to wear something like that. But maybe it’s not for everyone. What’s your take? Do you appreciate it when guys take more fashion risks?
Justin Bieber, Psy, Ed Sheeran and a Bieber lookalike by the name of Austin Mahone all attended the Hot 99.5 Jingle Ball in DC last night. And all were, predictably, dressed like total idiots. Although we give Bieber a few extra points for layering with a T-shirt adorned with cat faces, overall, we give the dude fashion for the night a resounding thumbs down. Maybe it’s because I’m 100 years old, but I don’t understand the Bieber tendency to dress as if you are actually 7-feet tall, in faux-distressed denim, kitted out with oversized hats and (pet peeve times a million) sunglasses indoors.
Check out the rest of the offenders after the jump…

Are you in search of the perfect clothes to emphasize your man’s “very sexy bod” this holiday season? Would you like for them to have cutouts in the shoulder area and perhaps a hand or two around the crotch? Does your guy maybe, just maybe, need a $250 bandeau bra with LED lights on the nipples? If you answered yes to all of these questions, and I know you did, look no further than Yoko Ono’s limited edition “Fashions For Men” collection, now available at Opening Ceremony. The 18-piece line is based on a book of sketches the artist gifted to John Lennon on their wedding day, which she was inspired to create “with love for his hot bod” because her man was “looking so great.”
So if your man’s bod has been looking very sexy lately, you should absolutely, no question, purchase him a pair of $250 Cutout Trousers, complete with a circular sheer mesh panel in the butt area. If you’re trying to stay on the more frugal side of things this Christmas or Hanukah, we think the $75 Butt Hoodie will suffice. Either way, your guy is bound to love whatever you choose from this can’t-be-missed collection. You can both be sure that it will emphasize his hot bod beautifully. [Opening Ceremony via The Cut]
