Things that make BosGuy go hmm…

I’m not a fashionista bEldridge Cleverut even I can see this is a fashion faux pas.  Check out the “Penis Pants”, conceived of and designed in the 1970s by Eldridge Clever.

The pants are designed with two styles, one with an oval-shaped pouch and the other (as shown on the left) with a “tubular shaped extension for the man’s penis and an adjoining smaller pouch for his testicles.”

Even more flummoxing is the tag line in the print commercial, “You’ll be the cock of the walk…” for realz.


Realm health and fitness tips from Kyle

BootcampInspired by a recent article in The Boston Globe, I started a week of “free fitness posts” yesterday and I asked Kyle to use his weekly post today to focus on one of the great FREE fitness programs in the city of Boston.  If you happened to miss the November Project morning work out this morning that I suggested in my post yesterday (you can read about it here) then maybe you’ll be tempted to try one of these free workouts in Boston’s Post Office Square tomorrow (Tuesday).

While a variety of classes are offered each weekday in Post Office Square, on Tuesdays, in the morning you can join Nicole for a Pilates class that starts at 7:15 AM sharp or if you are not a morning person, you can always join the free boot camp run by Erin that starts at 5:30 PM.

You can get more information about these and other classes in Boston’s Post Office Square this month by linking here.

He has been training for 5 years and has experience working with top-tier celebrity and executive clientele. When he’s not in the gym, Kyle is reading philosophy or writing poetry.

Do you like short shorts?

men's fashion short shortsIs this a lame attempt to feign interest in fashion or just another excuse to post photos of handsome men on my blog? I’ll let you make that call.

Last week The Boston Globe was commenting on David Colman’s WSJ fashion article about how men’s shorts seem to be getting shorter.  The subtitle reads, Long for so long, men’s shorts are showing up in a range of inseams – from short to shorter to shortest.

I dress fairly conservatively so it isn’t likely that I’ll be wearing anything similar to the shorts I first wore back in the ’80s, but I’m more than happy to encourage other guys (esp the guy below) to follow the trend.

By comparison these don’t seem all that short so maybe I’ll wear these.michael bastian fashion
