This is Large Tony’s online shop and he is currently offering 15% off purchases if you use the code: HDAY2014, but Tony is offering BosGuy readers 20% off if you purchase two or more shirts if you use the code:  BOSGUY.  Either way it is a great deal.

Order early if you want to make sure to get them in time for Christmas – although the holiday code Tony has set up is good through Sunday, January 4, 2015.

More information about the event can be found on their website, americanfield.us.


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.


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

Abby’s fancy birthday party

BosGuy nieceMy niece, Abby, turned 5 last Friday and on Sunday my sister arranged for the family birthday party at their house. Abby’s only request for her birthday party was that everyone dress “fancy”.

I had to laugh when I heard the request and thought  this was a request Sergio and I could manage easily enough. So earlier this morning we woke up, pulled out our tuxedos and drove up to New Hampshire to celebrate Abby’s milestone birthday.

As you can see Abby was dressed quite fancy.  I have also included a photo Sergio snapped before we walked in to celebrate Abby’s birthday.

Boomerangs ShoppingStarting last Thursday, AIDS Action Committee’s Special Edition thrift shop, Boomerang’s South End, hosted their new spring, special edition sale.  Then on Friday and Saturday Gilt City Boston hosted their spring warehouse sale at The Revere Hotel.
