    You don’t know how much I needed this today, Uncles. [weeps]

  • Glam Dixie

    Thank you, from the bottom of my chilly little heart. Sings, what a man, what a man, what a mighty good man.

      In my head the soundtrack was, “I woke up like this…”

  • SRQkitten

    What a way to end the week! Thank you dear uncles!!

  • @Biting Panda

    Want. To. Climb. That.

    • Glam Dixie

      Discretely elbows you out of the way.

      • marlie

        Screw being discreet about it.

        • Glam Dixie

          I’m a nice lady. (that’s one of my favorite Hangover quotes)

        • Sarah

          HA all you ladies will be behind me, because in my world, I will have lured him with sweet nuthin’s and cold beers long before you get there.

          • Glam Dixie

            You evil genius!

        • Danielle

          *takes off earrings*

    • DebbieLovesShoes

      This thread is hilarious!

  • Anna

    THANK. FUCK. I was starting to experience a medical emergency: Hypohotguycemia.

  • Sarah


  • DesertDweller79

    I didn’t know I needed it until I saw it. Wow. Thank you!

  • marlie

    That’ll do. Thank you, uncles.

  • barbarienne

    Happy sigh.

  • Lori

    Sometimes? That implies that there are times when the world does not need a hot guy in a well-fitted suit. I’m pretty sure that’s not true.

    • butterflysunita

      The only prime sausage of Sausage Friday. Thank you, uncles.

  • Synnae

    A. Thank you very f-in much! Joe closing out the week is always good.

    B. This guy is 6’5″ and can have his pants hemmed perfectly (and the rest of the suit fitted too). What is wrong with the rest of the male red carpet?

    C. I’m sure TLo are soothing themselves with some Joe to get over “that” Vogue cover but can you please do a write up? If Lorenzo’s twitter responses are anything to go by it should be pure gold!

    • oldscrumby

      I think it’s the Peter Dinklage effect where, if you’re at the far of the bell curve body-wise, you pretty much have to get your clothes tailored so of course they fit well. He doesn’t have the luxury of costing on ready-made as much if at all.

  • Sara__B

    Oh my. I needed that!

  • SewSophie

    Liam Hemsworth needs to have a talk with Joe about finding suits to fit muscles.

  • sagecreek

    Wow, and they are hemmed properly! It’s like seeing a unicorn!

    • LOL!!! Nice one.

    • cocohall

      The perfection of his look paired with your commentary has made my afternoon. “Seeing a unicorn” is just a delightful expression that I am going to steal unabashedly. Many thanks!

  • Julie Chase

    Siiiiiigh. Salt and pepper beards are the best way to end my work day.

    • marlie

      Nicely groomed and neckbeard-free S&P beards. YES.

  • alyce1213

    THAT’S what I call cleaning up nicely. Verrrrrry nicely. Thank you, he looks remarkably good.

  • KT

    Needs more bulge

  • JauntyJohn

    There was a book, some time ago, called I believe, “Young Man from the Provinces.” In it, they talked about the idea that some people are so beautiful they are a “U.T.” — a Universal Type. They are so sexy and attractive that almost everyone looks at them and thinks, “Oh yes.”
    This man, in that suit… just about a U.T.

    Not a fan of the uber-pointy shoes, but hey, I appreciate he was going for current style and something interesting.

    Now, if you’ll excuse me, I will have to wipe my saliva off my monitor, as I found myself trying to make out with it just before writing this comment.

    • That’s an interesting theory, but I must be the exception to the rule. He does nothing for me.

      • JauntyJohn

        Well… I did say “just about…” 😉

      • With you on that.

  • I have a question. Since I was six, I have been trying to figure out how men pair their shoes to their suits (because I had Malibu Ken who had no shoes…and not a lot of clothes). What is the ideal suit/fancy event shoe? Is it a loafer, a lace up, a boot? What color/texture?

    • JauntyJohn

      I was taught a “dress shoe” was leather, well shined — and a shoe with laces tends to be more formal than a slip-on type.
      Beyond that the dictum was that brown was paired mostly with tan or cream colored suits, and black with pretty much everything else.
      (They also taught me the correct length for a blazer was that the bottom of it should lightly touch the fingers when you cup your palm, if you stand up straight and your arms are resting comfortably at your side. More buttons on the sleeve means a more tailored cut and to always button the top button until one was seated.)
      Woah… Duuuude! Flashback to Cotillion!

      • Cotillion! That is a very exotic word for this trailer trash tot. Thanks for that amazing breakdown!

      • uprightcitizen

        They used to fit the jacket INTO the crook of your bent fingers when you stood up straight, but they seem to be so much shorter than that now. Jackets as long as that look like you’re a boy wearing your dad’s clothes today. I agree with the lace-up shoe, unless it’s a tuxedo, then the very dressiest shoe is once again a loafer, in patent leather or velvet. I always wore brown shoes with green or dark brown slacks and suits, too … and have a fondness for pairing a brown shoe with a medium-blue suit, but not a navy one. My favorite, back in the late 80s and early 90s, was to have a pair of cordovan shoes and matching belt. That looked really dapper with a dark gray suit. But I don’t think cordovan as a shoe color even exists anymore. A pointed or rounded toe is dressier than a square toe, isn’t it? As much as I would have loved it, they didn’t have cotillion in the suburbs of Oklahoma City. 😉 (And I highly concur about the Manganiello near universality, but my roommate would pass him on the street without even noticing him.)

        • JauntyJohn

          You are very correct about jacket length today. Personally, as a taller, “big-boned” bear, I still default to the longer length as I feel more comfortable with the coverage.
          But I think “wearing your Dad’s clothes today” with the more traditional proportion is dead on.

  • Mary Elizabeth Poytinger Baume

    and that, chris pine, is how we groom a beard. me-ow.

  • prisma

    Looking nice. I don’t know what it is about Joe Manganiello, but he has the same caveman quality about him that Christopher Meloni has and I can always imagine him scratching/digging in his ears with his car keys.

  • Cynica

    Attention, boystars: See that beard? See how it’s neatly groomed and doesn’t straggle down his neck? That is how you do it.

    • DebbieLovesShoes

      THANK YOU for pointing that out! So sick of “neck-beard”.

  • Paula Pertile

    Nice shoes.

  • Stefanie Argudo Mackenzie

    Ok, now the lust is setting in…mmmmm….yummy yummy. Come to mama, you hot Papi.

  • Carla_Charlton

    The suit fits him well, but he’s too muscle-headed for my taste. But that’s nice of you to think of us…

  • Sofia

    he looks great. he’s just not my type. although it is somewhat lessened here by the beard, he’s always had that chippendale dancer in-your-face-sexy look to me.

  • Danielle

    Remember when I said I needed a man who looked like he could fix you car and then do you on it? I’d like to present to the jury: Exhibit A.

    • SportifLateBoomer

      We share similar tastes. That’s about my ideal. If they are Latino, all the better. And of course must be smart.

      • MaggieMae

        And make me laugh.

  • Kirstin McAulay

    that’ll do nicely

  • BellaLuv

    I once stood behind him in line and didn’t realize how blatantly I was staring until he smiled and waved…such a gorgeous man!

  • Stella Zawistowski


  • Eric Stott

    FINALLY he learned to groom

  • Nataki Vickers


  • paginatrix

    What do you mean, “sometimes”?

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    There is NEVER a time when the world doesn’t need a hot man in a well-tailored expensive suit. We likey.
    Second thought-to other male celebs-there, wasn’t that simple? You get the suit tailored to fit, or tell the designer very, very nicely that you need a different size.

  • another_laura

    I’ll take 2, thanksverymuchbye!

  • e jerry powell

    I hate saying this, because it’s not something I usually subscribe to at all for any man ever, but I would love the beard so much more if he went all Just For Men with it.

    I will be in the closet scourging myself.

  • Thank you darlings. Happy Weekend!

  • R.A.

    Tight and right!

    • ShaoLinKitten

      Are you talking about his pants? Because that’s all I could look at.

  • Gotta hand it to him, when he makes the effort he cleans up WELL.

  • Praise Baby Jesus! Dear G-D this man is SMOKIN’!!! Thanks T & L!

  • Pennymac

    Gorgeous man, gorgeous suit, and *PRAISE GOD*properly trimmed facial hair sans neck beard!!!! Yum!

  • Andrea Terese

    Sometimes? All the time!

  • Kate4queen

    Nice 🙂

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    And a lovely Friday to the Uncles and all the Kittens, too! Damn, that man looks absolutely edible.

  • Richard Harper

    Jesus. It’s all perfect.

  • d4divine

    Sweet Jesus!!

  • conniemd

    Gawd, he is so prototypically the hot, hunky Italian male. Yummy, yummy (and I might add that’s not my first choice of male types)

  • t bell

    Thank God that he’s wearing clothes; I would be clawing at my computer screen if he wasn’t.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    That’s how your vest should look. It’s long enough that you don’t see his belt or shirt peeking out from under it.

    I am the same height as he is, and even when I was close to that build, my proportions are so much different. He is so perfectly proportioned that I think I might need some ice cream.

  • sk8tfan

    Rawwwwr. I’ve never been a big fan but he is very persuasive today.

  • Fred Vaughn

    On point.

  • decormaven

    Damn fine man, damn fine shoes. Thanks, uncles!

  • MzzPants

    AAaaaaaah….it’s like a soothing balm

  • Cheryl

    Such a nice fit. I thought it would be difficult since he’s a bit on the muscular side, but this is perfect.

  • unbornfawn


  • Dagney

    Why thank you! I’ll take two.

  • OffToSeeHim

    Oh is THAT how pants’ hems are supposed to look? I get so confused on the red carpet sometimes….

  • MannahattaMamma

    um…why only “sometimes?” Doesn’t the world ALWAYS need a hot man in a well-fitted suit? (but maybe less pointy shoes?)

  • quiltrx

    Mmm. I cannot find one single thing wrong with this. But I can find a lot of things that are right!
    (see, manstars? It’s not impossible to be gorgeous AND get everything right on the RC!)

  • FrigidDiva

    This is a man I much prefer with facial hair. Mmmmm.

  • I literally just grunted at my desk when I saw these pictures. Embarrassing? Yes. But I regret nothing!

  • Celeste

    Hot. Damn.
