I love all these guys.

Titus could have given a much more colorful narrative.

What is it about gay women and straight men that makes fashion so unnatural to us?

Someone needs to do a study to see once and for all if it's true that oral exposure to vaginal secretions inhibits one's sense of fashion, while simultaneously increasing the likelihood one finds plaid flannels sartorially acceptable.

Those guys are weird, no other word for it.

I wouldn't even know where to find those clothes around SE Virginia

I thought the Dersu Uzala look on the black guy (just before the Dalai Lama) was spot on, especially this being the winter of our discontent.

Moose said...

Wow. I am SO happy.

Shit.

What a fairyland. I only hope that what happens in New York stays in New York.

wv: unmen (really)

I don't get it. I wear that kind of stuff all the time, but in brighter colors.

What is it about gay women that they have to root for the Saints?

Now this is a guy who had his fashion shit together:

Professor Badass

:D

(Ps. He's not actually a professor, but the internet meme from back then was funny enough to where that's how people thought of him. And you gotta admit, that was one badass-cool outfit!)

Fine. You've got a right to love whoever you want for whatever reason you want. But you can't honestly say you love them for showing style. What they're showing is excess. And nothing but excess. What they're showing is a parody of style.

You loved the greenjeans in Ohio.

Much more.

I think this post fits in nicely with an "orchid" theme for the day.

Yes, because both orchids and these guys look like pussies.

bagoh20 and XWL - ha!

I have no plaid flannel, but I'm currently wearing green cargo shorts and a gray thermal shirt with a jaunty white horizontal stripe.

And beige wool socks with a little flowers embroidered on them.

That last bit is a nod to fashion.

Trooper - lesbians love Scott Fujita.

O well, these pictures explain why the scarf I knitted to my kid was stolled in NY (at nightclub) of all places, when he visited there in December. It looks like scarfs are a hot item there this season.

What is it about the New York that induces these men to improvise themselves in such a flourish of fabric, cut, and color? Two things come to mind when I see men display themselves in such non-masculine and clownish ways. The first is the cost to maintain such garishness, the second is the lack of taste in being such a fashionista. While some of the New York elite may swoon at this level of male insular fierceness, I just have to seriously wonder what the fuck these guys where thinking.

C'mon.

Several of these shots were the same guy on different days. Why did this feel like a concealed ad for some fashion house.

And why did I also have this vague feeling that the "reporter" was drooling as he reported.

And finally a couple of the shots were of guys/models with purses and "women's" clothing. Is cross-dressing now in style?
