Rafael Nadal gets cheeky

Hilfiger, Rafa, Rafael Nadal, TennisJust in time for the US Open, former number 1 tennis pro Rafael Nadal is in a new underwear campaign for Tommy Hilfiger. While I’m not a fan of Hilfiger, I do think quite a lot of Nadal’s assets.

The underwear expert asks: Boxers or Briefs

The underwear expert asks people on the streets of Beverly Hills what is their preference, boxers or briefs?

If you feel inclined feel free to share in my blog’s comments. For the record I’m a boxers guy at night but by day I prefer boxer briefs.

100 years of men’s swimwear in 3 minutes

Check out this compilation of men’s swimwear fashion over the past 100 years . The swimsuits are horribly ugly, but there is something very distracting about watching the handsome male model disrobe and put on each decade’s bathing suit.

Fashion faux pas: Man bun

bad hairI have many daily reminders that I’m getting older.  But none probably remind me of this fact more often than the latest trend in men’s hair, the “man bun”.

Despite the fact that A-list male actors like Chris Hemsworth, Colin Ferrell and Bradley Cooper have all been seen sporting the “man bun”, I can’t bring myself to appreciate this latest trend for men.  I’m sure there are many hipsters and 20-somethings that will disagree, but I want to point out that hairstyles seem to be the most fickle of trends; going out of style nearly as quickly as they come into style.

Unlike bad hair trends of the past (for example when Andre Agassi tried to make the mullet popular in the 1990s), those hair styles are relegated to our memories and parents’ homes where those embarrassing photos still proudly hang on walls. For those strutting around with a man bun today, your photos are plastered all over sites like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.  I can assure you that friends and family will keep these photos and enjoy teasing you whenever and wherever the opportunity arises, showing new boyfriends / girlfriends and others how “trendy” you looked long after this trend passes.  Bad Hair

Gandy Candy: David Gandy in new swimwear collection

Spencer Swimwear CollectionI’ve long been a fan of the handsome male model, David Gandy and I’ve not posted a photo of him since last summer when Mario Testino dropped this photo of Gandy in nothing but a towel on Instagram.

David Gandy still looks spectacular in the 2015 Spencer Swimwear collection. For what it is worth, this is the kind of bathing suit I’m partial to – colorful, square cut bathing suits.  It probably doesn’t hurt that Gandy makes these look so appealing.David Gandy Marks and Spencer Swimwear

Adam Phillips ponders the weather

handsome, hunk, sexy guy, hairyAdam seems to be confused about the weather. But he seems to pull off the ‘contemplative’ look convincingly enough in his Emporio Armani underwear. Watch out Max Emerson.

#BoycottDolceGabbana

Boycott Dolce Gabbana, #BoycottDolceGabbanaI wasn’t going to comment on the current controversy regarding Stefano Gabbana’s recent comments until he decided to open his mouth again in response to a call for a boycott of D&G products initiated by Sir Elton John and quickly picked up by many others in the gay community.

This is so reminiscent of Guido Barilla’s, Chairman of Barilla Group, comments in 2013.  It begs the question can the Italians join the rest of the world in the 21st century? Who would’ve ever guessed that the current Pope would prove to be a better friend than the founders of D&G?  I’m terribly disappointed in Stefano Gabbana and his one time partner, Dominico Dolce.  Their concept of what a healthy family looks like is terribly flawed and while they have a right to their opinion they clearly don’t understand who their buyers are. Insulting one of your most important group of buyers is an odd way to foster brand loyalty. Somehow I don’t see creeps like Senator Rick Santorum and Senator Ted Cruz buying D&G. Maybe Dolce & Gabbana can team up with Chick-fil-A.
