While the photo above is not from JJ Suspenders, I figured such a dapper image might give you pause to take a closer look at this post which is really my way of saying “Thank You” to JJ Suspenders.
Below you can see the surprise gift that was mailed to me last week. While I don’t have any pants that have suspender buttons sewn into them, Sergio does and this will look fantastic on him. If you don’t own suspenders, check out JJ Suspenders’ “Style Guide” on everything from selecting the right size to choosing the best form and style for your personality.JJ Suspenders come in a variety of styles and colors and are available for purchase online with free shipping available for orders of $50 or more.
Summer in New England means long sunny and humid days, which is why Boston can feel all but abandoned as residents flee to the islands, Cape Cod, Newport and the coast of Maine. What all of these destinations share are great beaches which means many of you are probably shopping for a bathing suit.
I thought I’d share my two cents on different bathing suit styles and include links to some brands you may want to check out.
Swim Trunks or Shorts (not to be confused with the much longer inseam of the surf-inspired Board Shorts) is not that popular with most of my friends but is a cut I feel comfortable wearing. The cut can range anywhere from the mid thigh to just above the knee. I like the versatility of these cuts, and how forgiving they can be if your stomach happens to be more curved than flat.
Square Cut Trunks are also another personal favorite cut which I think is flattering for most body types. I think these are also great because your tan line won’t be seen when you walk around town wearing shorts.
Briefs a.k.a. Speedos are the skimpiest of cuts and very popular, although I have never been comfortable wearing this cut unless swimming competitively. Having said that, I am a big fan of other people wearing this cut.
Shopping for a bathing suit? Check out these brands which aggressively market themselves to the gay community.
