Just in time for the holiday season, Modus Vivendi has released their Glamour Line inspired by the Glam rock style invented in the 70s in the UK. Regardless of the inspiration, the collection contains so many sequins you can make the case that they are festive enough to wear at December’s Underbear party at The Alley.
Modus Vivendi Glamour Line
While the Glamour tanktop and low cut brief shown above aren’t my personal style, a magician on the next Atlantis Cruise or their ‘helper’ might love it.
My aesthetic runs more to the Modus Vivendi Dali line (specifically their boxers) shown below. BTW, I’m a medium – just in case you wanted to send me a pair. I prefer strong graphic prints to sequins for my underwear.
Boston-based sneaker company, Converse, have shared their new LGBTQ-inspired collection “Yes to All” in honor of Pride Month. Proceeds raised from sales of the limited edition collection will go to It Gets Better and The Happy Hippie Foundation, both of which support the mission to create and inspire positive outcomes in the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth.

Have you seen Diesel’s new ad campaign, Make Love Not Walls? The campaign launched on Valentine’s Day is all about tearing down the mental and physical walls that separate us so we can come together in the name of unity and love. Much thanks to Sergio for sharing this with me.
I posted this last year but thought it worth reposting again. The Underwear Expert Blog asked their handsome style report, Jared North, to try on a variety of underwear types and colors based on traditions from different countries. Most of these traditions are meant to bring success, health or a better love life in the New Year. Which tradition will you be following when you slip on your underwear Saturday night?
The photo above of Paul Revesz by Ted Sun wearing a Garçon Model swimsuit may make you wish you hadn’t eaten quite as much turkey but there is plenty of time to work that off unlike the Black Friday sale going on at Garçon Model.
Do a little shopping for yourself, your boyfriend or me (I like their Dodge Briefs) and take an extra 30% as a special gift from the Garçon team when you use promo code BLACK30.
Shoes: Pleasure and Pain
On view November 19, 2016 to March 12, 2017
The Peabody Essex Museum (P.E.M.) in Salem has an exhibit for all you fashionistas and shoe fanatics with their latest exhibit, Shoes: Pleasure and Pain.
According to the exhibit’s webpage, you can “explore the creativity of footwear from around the globe through more than 300 pairs of shoes, ranging from elaborate vintage designs to those by contemporary makers.”
The exhibit cannot but help remind me of this YouTube classic.
Did you happen to see this video, Top 10 Decade Defining Fashion Trends of the 1990s? If you grew up in that decade you’ll likely remember (and possibly wince) at the memory of several of these trends that you may have fallen victim to.
