Recently I was bemoaning the fact that I do not resemble the Calvin Klein model who looks picture perfect in the underwear I purchased so you would think I’d not be tempted by D.Hedral’s sexy underwear line. Sadly, I’m a sucker and marketers know this.
D.Hedral claims their underwear is superior because they are the “first shape based underwear”. Their product supposedly embraces your backside perfectly, enhancing it’s natural roundness and adding extra support. I’m thinking its sort of “wonder bra” for men’s butts. Check out this hilarious breakdown of how their garments will help you.

My sister Susan sent me this eCard earlier this week to give me a chuckle and it reminded me of a phrase two of my friends in Atlanta use to always say, which I still believe is the golden rule when it comes to purchasing and wearing clothing.
“Just because they make it in your size
doesn’t mean you should wear it.”
No matter your body shape or size, there is clothing that can accentuate the positive. Certain colors, cuts, prints and even fabrics all contribute to this or as is more often the case accentuate the negatives – and for the record, showing back fat is always accentuating the negative.
From time to time I like to insert a photograph of David Gandy, a 30-something English model with a stunningly handsome face and body to match. I refer to these random posts as “Gandy candy” for obvious reasons. Not sure who the lucky photographer was but I found this on the aptly named tumblr site, Candy Gandy.
If you are gay look closely at the photograph below. There are actually three people in this photograph. I only saw Joe Manganiello. Really, when you look below, can you blame me?
French underwear company Hom photographed eight French swimmers for their new underwear collection. There are more photographs on the OHLALA Mag blog where I first read the story as well as a two minute video on YouTube which I thought was less interesting but you can decide by watching here.
Hey US swimmers how about you step up to the plate and do the same? After seeing Ricky Berens swimming his Olympic qualifying race in Rome with a torn suit that exposed his bum this should seem tame.

The Revere Hotel celebrated its grand opening yesterday with a jaw dropping vertical fashion show that had models walk down the face of the 24-story hotel exterior wearing outfits created by students from Massachusetts College of Arts & Design and by Ted Baker London.
I love this photo taken by Dominick Reuter / EPA of Mike Barron who is wearing an outfit created by Ted Baker London.
You can see more photos from the event here.
Motley’s spring collection is out, and I have my eye on an Adidas pullover, but I figured I’d take a wait and see approach to that purchase. However, I couldn’t pass up this bear t-shirt. I love the color and fit so I swiped it before the shirts sell out.
I don’t see this particular t-shirt on his website, shopmotley.com but if you call and tell Jason you want the t-shirt BosGuy bought he’ll know exactly which one you are talking about. BTW – if Jason sounds familiar its because he’s the one I wrote about in my recent post entitled Jason & Randy so be sure to congratulate him if you do chat with him.

The “dirty” post from earlier this week proved to be far more popular than I would have ever anticipated. Mental note never to underestimate the sex appeal of Henry Cavill.
Anyway, my good friend on Twitter @JustGngr appreciated the “dirty” theme and brought my attention to C-IN2′s “Filthy” line of underwear. While I do not post any advertising on my blog (I like to think of myself as a low-brow, slightly vulgar version of NPR for the LGBT community), I’m not opposed to promoting certain brands.
Feel free to check out C-IN2′s Filthy line.
Last week when I posted the Calvin Klein 2012 Spring photo and video I received a lot of positive feedback so I thought I’d share an ad campaign that I thought was particularly sexy. The 2010 Cristiano Ronaldo Armani campaign. I’ve been enamored with this football / soccer player since I saw him play in the 2008 Olympics.
I had to remind myself this was an advertisement when I first saw this picture. Calvin Klein has always been brilliant at using sex to sell their merchandise. I’ll admit I’ve never been a fan of the clothing, but I’ve always had a deep appreciation for their marketing.
Want more? Here’s Calvin Klein’s 2012 Spring underwear campaign.
Black tie season is in full swing and I’ve been noticing a lot of grown men with clip-on bow ties. If you are attending your high school prom you are forgiven. For everyone else, there is no excuse. Take a moment to watch this quick video courtesy of Details Magazine on how to tie your bow tie.
