I’m not a fashionista but 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.
Is 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.
My 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.
Starting 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. I’ve included a few photos from the Gilt City Boston sale this past weekend.
While the sheer volume that Gilt City Boston had for shoppers looking for bargains was impressive, Boomerang’s South End spring collection is still available so check it out at 1407 Washington Street.
Blogger Large Tony has been working on ideas for his t-shirt company, Shirts-n-Grins. He recently shared some of his new designs on his blog so I checked them out and thought they were funny.
Perhaps you’d enjoy buying one for yourself or maybe as a gift for a buddy. Check out his site and let me know which ones you like.

In cities across the US, charities will be hosting a variety of fundraisers this spring. Some of these events will be very casual like the upcoming Taste of the South End here in Boston on Tuesday, March 4th, while others will be more formal – possibly requiring you to step up your game.
While nobody will fault you for a full Windsor knot, you can distinguish yourself and make your tie really stand out by selecting a less traditional tie knot. While there are many to choose from, I really like the Trinity and Eldredge knots. Thanks to Alex Krasny and his YouTube videos you can watch how to tie a trinity tie knot and eldredge tie knot.
