Pairs Division: Weir and Goreski

Posted on June 29, 2011

It’s Ladies Night and the girls decided to show off their gams in the hopes of snagging a horny sailor (or dockworker, or cab driver, or priest). Hit it, girls!

Johnny Weir and Brad Goreski (in Thom Browne) attend Trevor Live: An Evening Benefiting the Trevor Project in New York City.

The whole formal-shorts-on-men thing has its historical roots, but we tend to think it works better at a country club or Wimbledon. Pairing it with a tuxedo is really pushing it.

HE: If either of them are pulling this off, it’s Brad. The best thing to do, if you’re going to wander off the sartorial beaten path, is to keep your look rooted in recognizable traditions. Essentially, he just looks like he switched out his pants at the last second because it’s hot out. It helps that he chose a pant length that doesn’t look tacky or silly on him. Love the jacket, although we’re not entirely convinced Thom Browne’s normal highwater proportions work that well with shorts. If you’re going to attempt this look (and we salute you if you are), then this is what you’re shooting for. Score: 9/10. Loafers on the feet would have been better.

SHE: Needs to pack up her Liza With a Z album, her eyelash curler, her henna rinse, and her bedazzler, and pick up some taste along the way. We are ALL FOR dandyism here at T Lo Manufacturing, Ltd. It’s a lost art and we salute any young man willing to take it out for a spin, but honey, there are ways and there are ways, if you know what we mean. We would accept everything above the waist if it weren’t for those horrible trashbag hotpants, which are tacky and a little vulgar, given the venue. Flamboyance is a wonderful tradition among our tribe, dear, but if it’s not paired with taste or wit, then you’re the queen dancing alone on the broke-down Pride float no one notices. Score: 6/10.

Combined score: 7.5/10. But let’s face it, our bitchiness matters not. They were almost certainly the belles of the ball with these looks. Here’s hoping you each scored a barback, ladies!

      Liza was exactly what came to mind when i saw Weir. hilarious all around. All what a silly attention whore be he

      For sounding so unconvinced, you certainly gave Goreski a high score.  Letting him off the hook, eh?  ;) I too dream of men’s formal shorts, but certainly not looking like this.  Blech.

      It also appears that Weir isn’t wearing an undershirt and you can see through his shirt, which is, again, a no with a formal jacket.  His hair is also a bit of a tragedy.  I do like Brad’s look, but the shoes look a bit ridiculous.

      Her puritanical ascot is eye searing. The only people who would wear that out in public are ladies who lead a quilting circles or teach sunday school.

      Is Weir’s shirt not tucked on purpose or accidental?

      Either way a proper dandy from the 20’s would have never allowed that to happen and dandy certainly is the look he going for here. Another point off for that on my score card.

    • Rand Ortega

      Are they an actual couple now? I thought BG had a LTB. Anyway JW looks like 1 of Liza’s backup singers in SATC 2. Yikes. BG is adorable. He seems to get the spirit of an event & work it appropriately. When does his show start, btw?

      These two are just silly.  Johnny Weir always looks silly, but now apparently he is dragging others down with him.

      Goreski looks great, as usual. I just love his style and he’s really pulling this look off. So handsome and so adorable!
      How I love Johnny Weir, but girl those hotpants really are made of Hefty bags, aren’t they? Tsk. And really, how many pounds of makeup is he wearing? Sweetheart, you don’t need all that. You’re naturally stunning. But it’s not all bad news. Johnny has a pretty great pair of legs there. I’m jealous.

      Weir’s purposely hanging shirt tail is really the piece of it that’s killing me.  Liza would not approve (while sober)

        I think it’s the lesser of two evils. Tucking it in those shorts is one of the few things that would have made this particular outfit look even worse.

      Johnny looks like a cross between Liza and the Emcee from Cabaret.

      The reason men’s formal shorts will never work is the shoes. Men’s black shoes don’t work with this look (sorry, darlings, but loafers would be no better). Perhaps some nice black patent mary janes.

      Poor Johnny is just trying to hard, which makes her look desperate.  Brad, somehow, is making it look effortless.

      Agreed with most of your comments and those from posters. Yet, Johnny has the sweetest smile when he isn’t trying to pose queer. And I don’t hate the ascot. But did say to myself, “self, oh dear” when I got the first glimpse of the sequinned granny pants.

      “Hoping to snag a priest”………I fell over my keyboard laughing.  Brad looks acceptable and I totally agree that loafers would have been the shoewear of choice here.  My only comment about Johnny is that you were extremely generous in handing out points this morning.

      Brad is making it work pretty well, although I agree he needs different shoes. Johnny’s look is breaking my heart. He has such a beautiful face – why all the horrible makeup?! He looks waxen and fake, and those shorts are the pits. I could forgive him wearing that silly jabot and no undershirt if he had a clean face and perhaps a kilt.

      Why aren’t they wearing socks?

      • Sara__B

        Wouldn’t socks make it look worse? I’m having enough trouble wrapping my brain around these “formal shorts”, but trying to imagine socks with them is even harder. What color socks? How tall? Knee socks? (Gotta stop before my brain shuts down completely.)

          Black sheer ribbed men’s dress socks for Brad. And neon  fishnet anklets with stretch lace tops for Johnny.

          I think that all men should wear knee socks with shorts. Dark Blue, Brown or black or White work.

      • MilaXX

        I don’t think socks would help this look. I dig men in knee shorts and loafers. It’s just when the outfit has to be dressier that it gets iffier. Brad is as close to wearing it well as it can get.

          I like wearing knee shorts (white or tan linen) in the summer with white & navy saddle bucks.  No socks. Seersucker or gaberdine blazer.  And a hat of some sort.   It’s dandy without being too silly.

          • MilaXX

            Yeah that works. It’s just the formal wear that’s a problem because there is no shoe both causal enough for the shorts, yet formal enough for the occasion.

      Oh dear god, when I saw Weir, I was thinking Liza in her Muppet-hair era, too! It is illustrative, though, to see these two side by side to understand why the same idea can produce such disparate results.

      BG isn’t bad.  I’m not a huge fan of formal shorts on men or women, but he actually looks like he’s wearing tuxedo pants that were hemmed into shorts.  I agree that he needed different shoes.  I like the jacket, and that he went more a more traditional route with the top, since the bottom was unconventional.  I agree with the 9.

      JW looks like he forgot to put on pants.  Those look like novelty boxer shorts.  Then the crazy ascot thing, the untucked shirt, and the hair.  As a mascara-worshipper myself, I won’t take off points for him wearing it.  But he doesn’t need the rest of the make-up.  He’s gorgeous and has no skin problems…he should be showing that off.  I think a 6 is too strong a score for something I find more wrong than right.  Maybe a 4.

      Brad’s look is fun; the only thing questionable for me is the too-long length of his shirt cuffs (or maybe too short jacket sleeves?).

      Weir is so desperate for attention, I feel sorry for him. Where to start, from his ridiculous flower pot hairdo, to his stupid school headmistress from the previous century ascot to  the absurd “I wish I were Cameron Diaz” shorts? You gave him very high marks.

      I think they both look pretty dippy.  Shorts are not formal wear.  Tux jackets are not companions for shorts.  And the shoes, darlings, the shoes.  Now, granted, JW has good legs.  Given his chosen profession, he’d have to.  But making them look ridiculous doesn’t make them attractive.

    • Anonymous

      They look like dorks.

    • http://visceralresponse.com Dina dV

      I mostly agree with both your assessments.  I cringed at Johnny and thought Brad, despite every possible reason why it should have been ridiculous, mostly pulled it off.  And it really is a function of each man’s personal style.  Brad has a couple of missteps, but overall has a quirky, but sophisticated, personal style so while it’s a little silly because of the short cuffs on the jacket and the shiny formal shoes, his glasses are cool, his hair looks great, and his shorts are…shorts.  But it’s more of a 7 out of 10.  Good, but not great.

      Johnny has always been kind of a clownish rube with his personal style.  He equates tacky with glamorous and then piles it on to 11.  The torturedly “casual” flapping shirt hem is hilarious because this kid’s never been casual. Plus, he’s barreling down on 30 and is still trying to pretend he’s a waifish adolescent.  His still very young face is already segueing into a mask, and it’s becoming a distraction.  But at least he managed to find a better hairstyle.  Oddly, it’s Evan Lysacek’s.  I’d have given him a 4 for at least getting a nice jacket and fixing his hair, but everything else is as hilariously wrong as he usually is.

      Brad looks like he dressed for an evening event.  Johnny looks like he dressed for a tongue-in-cheek evening event, like a costume ball.

      Brad has more sense than to put his thighs on display against a competitive ice skater. 8/10 (because I think shorts don’t work with a tux – with a tux it should have been a kilt),
      -.5 because extra half inch of shirt cuff showing makes the jacket look ill fitting, even though I know the Thom Browne suit is supposed to do that. Brad looks like a grown man (though yes, an adorable one) and shouldn’t be dressing waif-ish school boy.
      Final score: 7.5/10

      Johnny Weir, I love you but no. Waist up is barely o.k. though I’d take off -.5 for the flat black hair (yeah, I know it’s a look, but I’m tired of it. I’ve been surrounded by artsy fartsy teenagers for going on 8 years now. It just looks adolescent to me.)
      Untucked shirt -2, it’s a stupid look in the first place that does NOT work with a tux jacket.
      Visible lack of undershirt -1
      Glittery short shorts? -3, even though you worked hard for your thighs.
      And now that I think about it, another -.5 because the faux ascot looks faux.
      Final score: 3/5

      Combined score: 5.25/10

      BTW, does anyone know if Weir has gone back into serious training? (I’m not enough of a skating aficionado to know where to go to find that out.)

      I totally think he deserved his year off.  “I took one year off to eat and rest and not having a million people telling me what I do every day” as he said on the Today Show earlier this year, but I hope he’s going back into competition.

      • Helen C

        I don’t think he has been in serious training since the 2010 Olympics.  He has been doing some ice shows.
        And
        frankly, he shouldn’t return to competitive skating.  He’s getting too
        old for the sport (sadly) and he’s no Plushenko.  Plushenko has enough
        craziness and discipline to seriously train again as a “grandpa” of the
        sport, and Plushenko has steady skills throughout his career.  Weir was
        never a very strong skater to begin with.

        • Anonymous

          Hmm, interesting. I don’t know skating well enough to have an opinion on what’s possible, but I had been wondering about his return since the “year off ” is up & it’s harder to get back into competition shape than to stay there. Pity if he can’t make it, both because I have enjoyed watching him and because I wonder how he’ll fare without the structure that rules your life when you are competing seriously. There’s a big psychological difference between “I’m taking XX time off” and “Well, that’s over, what’s next?”

      Weir just looks a mess — untucked shirt, no undershirt, horrifying shorts, what is UP with his hair, and an faux ascot? Really? No self-respecting dandy would go around looking so thrown-together. I’d go 4 max on his look. 

      Goreski on the other hand looks pretty good — sort of ironic Edwardian British Lad.

      Formal shorts on men is terrible. It has a bizarre casual look when the wearer is trying to look dressy. I don’t think socks would work, but their feet in those ugly shoes look bad. And men need great legs to look fantastic in shorts.

      Echoing BuffaloBarbara: Shorts are not formal wear. Brad has lots of style and maybe even some influence in the fashion world, but he hasn’t been around long enough to be able to make formal shorts happen. As for Johnny, I suspect he’s been taking fashion advice from Sevigny, and that is *never* a good idea.

      Brad?  I don’t know who you are, but I respect you.  Your jacket could have been slightly better fitted and the patent leather was a tad too much.  But I respect your effort, and oddly enough, your hair.

      Johnny?  I haven’t smoked in four days and I just spilled my lean cuisine all over myself, resulting in no lunch AND a tit burn.  Prepare thyself:
      I don’t know who the fuck you think you are, but you DO NOT wear an untucked shirt with a tuxedo, even if your tux consists of lame shorts that ride up in such a way that all I can picture is you, walking down the sody-pop aisle up to the WalMart, ignoring your dirty, whiny children.  And I seriously don’t know how many times I have to say it, if you’re going to dabble in the Reagan hair paint, do something with your fucking brows.  I would have complimented the lip color, but coupled with the rouge all I can think about is Liza and Paul Reubens going at it on the back of a zamboni.  I’m only so harsh because of your potential.  I’d hate to see you as Jm J Bullock’s neighbor square.

      They both look silly to me.  I don’t like the formal shorts look for men.  Of course silly is just fine, if that’s what you’re going for.  I love Johnny but I’m wondering why he didn’t go all the way and shave his legs.  For a real fashion score I wouldn’t have given either one of them more than a 3.5.  If it’s a score for a fun costume, then they both get 8.5.  I can’t figure out why if you are going to ding men for hem lengths, how on earth could shorts be acceptable?  I suppose I could eventually get used to it, if it reached some tipping point where John Hamm was going it.

      Really, just swapping out the shoes for some custom, black top siders would make Brad Goreski’s look.  He’s already 90% there. 
      Johnny is wearing a wonderful tuxedo jacket BUT, he is days away from being 27 and he needs to stop trying to look like a 14 year old girl. Those shorts are tasteless and hiddy on him. He would have been cute as a kitten if he’d gone for a simple black ribbon, but no, he had to go for the jabot. And the expectent look.  Always the expectent look.  Needy.

      He gets away with this look about as well as anyone can. He’s showing some taste and class. As you said, loafers would have been better. But it’s always interesting to see what he’s wearing. 8/10

      In the Learn Something New Every Day department, the varied nomenclature in this thread led me to look up the difference between ascot, jabot (and cravat). And found some guidelines though usage is not consistent. Those of you already well informed may skip ahead.

      Our friend Miss Weir is, apparently & appropriately, wearing a jabot (I stand corrected, having called it an ascot). The jabot consists [more often than the ascot] of a ruffly and/or lace cascade and traditionally/originally was part of a woman’s costume.

      I have Doubts about Brad’s jacket, but if only those bow like thingies weren’t there, I’d be all for it. He’s working the relaxed, Colin Farrel ‘I know I’m supposed to dress up but I really didn’t feel like it, much’ vibe, and he’s doing it very well. I’d dock points for the jacket and add for the nerve to get an 8. I am pretending those shoes don’t exist.
      Johnny… oh, baby. What happened? What were you smoking? Can I have some? I wouldn’t be one bit surprised if there was a fishnet tank-top under there somewhere.

      You were way, WAY too kind here. Brad gets a 7, Weir gets a 1. Everything, from the booty shorts to the bedazzled neck embarrassment to the pancaked makeup to the matted hair, is horrible.

      I’m sorry but the whole Thom Browne look is just insipid – outside of some rarefied circles, you’d never see it worn anywhere.  I do remember some guy coming to our offices for a meeting with a couple of our Senior Execs and the best comment was “…they aren’t paying you enough to buy a full sized suit?”  Which was quickly followed by a “…I always thought guys who wore floods were dorks and you just proved it”

      I’m just gonna quote a general rule my (admittedly senile, high on medical marijuana) grandma told me, “If you’re gonna show ‘em, shave ‘em.”

      Love the HE/SHE device. Immediately self-explanatory and completely wicked. Well done. SHE looks like she’s in sequined boxer shorts. The look is great from the waist up. I love the fluffy tie. But sweetie darling, put some pants on and tuck your shirt in. You made your statement with the tie and brooch, already. And the eyeliner. You’re smarter, more accomplished, and more daring than anyone in that room. But your slip is showing.

      hasn’t BG dressed JW before and actually helped him pull off the “dandy” look successfully?  i call sabotage.  BG clearly let JW prance himself right onto the worst dressed list.  friends don’t let friends partner sequin hot pants with a tuxedo.
