Was it not Casanova himself who recommended taking a woman along when buying clothes?

that j crew shirt does not compare to that jean shirt and the guy’s hotness makes the shirt look hot. you have to be sexy to pull that look off…and clearly this man is sexy

you nailed it when it comes to us straight guys, although i do look to some of my gay friends for answers, but a womens advise is priceless [that is the goal, right, to impress the women]. unfortunately i am a bike racer and i have a nice defined tan line on my legs, as in dark / white [not to mention they are shaved]. so my good looking legs [minus all the battle scares] almost always get long[er] shorts [now albiet a trimmer fit]. thanks for a great blog and the great images.

It’s 2007. Isn’t it time to retire archaic attitudes about what men–straight men–can permit themselves to discuss with one another, or with women, in regard to sexual display in dress?
By now, one would think any male can allow himself and any other male a narcissistic prerogative, let’s call it.
Most men want to look good=sexually attractive. One isn’t compromising one’s masculinity by wanting to do so and acting on the wish. John Wayne is dead. Laconic stolidity, especially in matters of dress, is for sissies!

Oh I dunno, Sart. I’m a straight guy and I always talk about fashion with girls, especially girls I’m attracted to. I think that they like someone who casually flouts the stereotype. I also probably have idiosyncratic things to say.

You hit the nail on the head for this straight guy. I never read the comments on the site, but pored over them on the shorts discussion. Good stuff.

hey bike-racer,shaved legs on men – especially with bike-racer legs – are very hot, imho!
positively the same dame

the shorts post reminded me of an exchange i once had with a (straight) male friend of mine. i asked him if he could think of an expression he had never once used in conversation, and he said “shorts set”.

I guess I live in a completely different world. I am not afraid to ask a couple of my stylish straight friends for their opinion on fashion… the same applies to interior decor.
Besides it is more than time to kill the erroneous concept that all gay guys are stylish and have well decorated abodes. I know so many sloppy gay guy living in badly decorated homes…

thanks for the “thanks”…i quite enjoy reading the other comments and posting my own. such a great forum for discussion!
i find it much more interesting to see what people on the streets (even though it’s usually the streets of the fashion capitals) are wearing than what the stylists are putting together in the magazines.

Hello, I’m from Singapore, and it’s quite a find, your website. Thanks! Though, would have loved more hot weathered wear.
On the topic of shorts.. Wondering if you would run something on short sleeved shirts? Ok, ok. I KNOW the difference!
I can never seem to find good short sleeved shirts! Only one exception was a Paul Smith (? I think – it was on a stranger), with interesting semi-large buttoned sleeves and a U-shaped fabric on top of the front buttons. Interesting without being too much.
Does anyone know of any other designers that does this?
Also, on the same topic, do people in NY wear short sleeves? Or in Europe? I know in Japan, and China, they do.

You want to see straight men discussing fashion with other straight men? http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com

Well, chambray shirts and shorts in general should never be worn for their inherent style but exclusivly if they add to ones own style – or, dare I say it, sexappeal. I, for example, could never pull off mid-thigh shorts as I inherited my mother’s side’s legs, e.g. sticks. Albeit hairy sticks. You get the picture and you seriously don’t want to see them exposed on the streets. Slim, and down to the knee is perfect though – for me. And, by the way, I have forwarded several posts to my wife, resulting in a lively discussion. And, one more thing: as a German I feel no difficulty discussion fashion or clothes in general with my fashion-conscious friends of even colleagues. This is a superb blog, I get so much inspiration out of this. Thanks again! And, please, do keep up the work!

The first man has n interesting face and I like the way he put together his outfit, jewelry et al.

There’s nothing sexier than a man who can do fashion and still look like a man. Androgyny? Not so much :)
