    • boweryboy

      Amen, sister!

    • Victor Beiramar Diniz

      and treasure trails!

      • Lori

        Or as I used to call my ex’s, the road to perdition.

    • Lily

      Amen and then… tired of the buff and bare look. Sorry, gents, but real men do have hair, even if it’s slightly manscaped!

      • smh4748

        I wouldn’t say it’s a requirement for “real” men–but broadening the acceptable look for men, as well as women, is great!

        And I hope the hottie first appearing in #4 shows up in my dreams tonight. Whoa buddy!

        • formerlyAnon

          #4 is my pick as well. Though my photo of him is #11 because his profile! I have, I have this, this thing about noses. And the bridges thereof.

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        Sorry lady, but there are all kinds of men out there and the presence or lack of body hair has nothing to do with how “real” of a man they are.

      I just got paid $7500 working off my computer this month. And if you think that’s cool, my friend has twin toddlers and made over $8k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do…..

  • msdamselfly

    Love this. 70’s bliss

  • conniemd

    Real men clothes worn by men who look older than 18. I don’t quite get the sweater and shorts looks though.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      Hot blooded Texan here. I wear shorts and sandals 363 days of the year. I wear a coat and/or sweater with shorts and sandals when it gets cooler. There’s about 2 days a year I need to wear jeans because of the cold, and maybe 5 or 6 I wear shoes or hiking boots with socks because of the cold.

      So yeah, I like this.

      • MissAmynae

        preeecisely. Bathe in the glory that is my sandal collection!

    • MightyMarshal

      I wear sweaters and shorts on the regular during the summer. Ralph Lauren makes great linen/silk blend sweaters that are perfect for summer.

  • Denise Rambo

    Kris Kristofferson? Where?

  • Anna

    Model in 2nd photo: Oh yes, please Sir.

    (Also getting a Karl Urban vibe from him, Mmmmmmm)

  • boweryboy

    Naw. Nothing here appeals to me (minus the the eye candy of course). I’m certianly not the demographic for this collection, but I’m totally on board with championing shorty shorts and man thighs.

  • Thomas

    Why has the appropriation of Native American stuff (Navajo patterns?) been so in the past few years?

    • boweryboy

      It’s nothing new. It’s a fashion cycle. A few seasons back it was appropriation of Japanese culture. Also, Ralph Lauren made a name for himself by appropriating Native American stuff.

      Usually, there’s a culture that’s appropriated for every season. Sometimes it extends across a few seasons.

      • Thomas

        Every time I go on Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, etc., all I see is Navajo patterns. It’s time for a new trend. This one has overstayed its welcome.

  • lecoffeeaddict


  • Ashleigh

    mmmm. yes, chest hair and short shorts and nice legs…AND clothes that aren’t freaky weird!

  • Glam Dixie

    The proportions on the pants seem off, but for the hairy man thighs alone, I give this yea.

  • Fyolette

    a few hot guys are modelling the results of their workout routine, partially obscured by some clothes. yes.

  • JauntyJohn

    Some very wearable pieces, a few cheap looking pieces (I’m looking at you, #3) and some really excellent pieces (#’s 24 & 25 especially).
    Some of this reads a wee bit more fall than spring to me, but at this point the seasons-to-fabrics/colors stuff seems so muddy now in recent collections that I try not to even view them through that lens.
    Overall for this, though, I vote Yes.

    • Janet B

      Yesterday, I saw a pair of pants while shopping that looked similar to #3 and I thought had the same reaction.

    • Truly_Outrageous

      Seriously some of these looks did lean towards fall season. Wherever he’s from they must have some cold spring and summers there ( #17 is wearing too many layers). Nonetheless, I love the collection. Especially all the shorts.

  • http://www.dogsdotcom.blogspot.com/ Plink

    Ahhhhh, love every single one…and the clothes aren’t bad either.

  • DaveinAlamitosBeach

    How do people wear those kinds of shoes with no socks? I seriously want to know. I would think your feet would be ripped up in just a couple of hours.

    And I’m guessing from these images that underwear is out as well?

    • BobStPaul

      Jockey actually makes socks to wear with loafers to get that look.

  • TM

    “Inspired by Arizona, the Sonoran Desert, the Eagles, Kris Kristofferson, and late 70′s southern California.”

    Huh, that’s a lot. But I wouldn’t say no to a date with a guy dressed like #6.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName


    • ryenerman

      Praise the tiny baby Jesus for men’s shorts that are not ridiculously long!!

    • somebody blonde

      Yes indeed. I had to make a second pass to see any clothes or faces.

  • sundaynightaddict

    Nothing groundbreaking, but their “guy” is a guy I would do. Great looking clothes and styling.

  • Kerry McCombs

    Meooooooooooow. Models that don’t look like twelve year olds! YES!

  • evave2

    I like that the models look like “normal” attractive, super attractive men. But I think all the clothes are something that is already for sale (because my son wears things that look like that, not that he looks like that). Is it just so much better made?

  • Beardslee

    Nice shorts! Beautiful men! Thanks, guys.

  • imustacheyouaquestion

    why are all the models legs weirdly short?

  • Jessica Freeman

    compared to the shittery of men’s collections we’ve been subjected to over the last few weeks, I feel this one deserves a standing ovulation…err…ovation.

  • Janet B

    1. Yes, to nice clothes and men with nice thighs.
    2. This all seems like Fall not Spring.
    3. The feather on a the chain is a big Nay.

  • AlexisPayne

    I do love Fridays around here :)

  • DKBB

    Thank you, Uncles. You have made my day!

  • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

    Pleasantly gratuitous sausage Friday line-up… but I fear those feather chains are ending up on elderly gay windchimes soon.

    • decormaven

      You know Johnny Depp has already marked those for his own.

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

        Jason Momoa may already have taken them all.

        • formerlyAnon

          Thanks for the laugh!

    • FrigidDiva

      That was my first thought when I saw those.

    • Jacob Bowen

      And they will make him EXTRA wind-chimey!

  • stellavision

    We’re not going to pretend that this is about the clothes at all, are we? At least, I’m not. Yes, please.

  • smayper

    Anyone seeing Springsteen in #13? I started humming “Born to Run” immediately.

    • The Versatile Chef

      Dancin’ in the Dark, for me!

  • traceyishere

    A bit costumey but some great items when worn with other clothes.

  • marlie

    A lot of interesting but normal and wearable pieces. And thighs. Lots and lots of thighs. *fans self*

  • Lily

    Me likey! And the clothes ain’t bad, either.

  • PeggyOC

    Every 80s preppy douche-tool ever just had a sense of deja-vu.

    • Constant Reader

      Yep. And I can’t like this collection for that very reason.

  • Tanya Wade

    J.D. Souther for International Male. I am unable to dislike this, since all things 1970s make me smile.

  • MaggieMae

    #1 please.

  • Nicholas

    Is there a single soul who didn’t initially think this was a Lenny Kravitz post?

    • formerlyAnon

      Hoped. “Hoped” was the word you were going for, right?

    • bizarro

      That was my immediate impression with the thumbnail guy. But alas, it was not meant to be. Lenny would OWN these looks because he can wear anything. These guys, while undeniably hot, look a little douchey with the styling. They are not selling it, imo.

      • Nicholas

        True. It looks like there was a mix-up with Yale Rowing Club’s shipment of preppy Polo shirts.

  • Aidan B

    There is a lot to like here. But most importantly, THIGHS.

  • Nancer

    So funny, these poses just make me want to giggle. They are trying so darn hard to be hot hot hot!!! Of course they are fabulous looking men, that’s a given – it really wasn’t necessary to try so hard.

  • AzSportsGirl

    I actually LIVE in the Sonoran desert and the colors are discordant. The only thing that struck me as AZ or Sonoran is the scorpion graphic on the sweater.

  • formerlyAnon

    Good looking models, good clothes. Though I don’t want men to wear suits that look too small on them, even on purpose.

  • sleepycat

    Panting over the models and clothes. Shut up and take my money.

  • KendraMR

    That first model is perfection–the face, the hair, the beard, and DEM THIGHS.

    ETA: Oh, and the clothes are nice, too 😀

  • Josephine Koster

    I hate the trend of too-tight suits on men (because most men look better when they can actually exhale), but the jackets and sweaters here are quite nice.

  • KT

    Hot. Really into all the hair and thighs and hairy thighs. Pants are moving. Mmmm.

  • TwiddlyStun

    Are we sure it wasn’t inspired by Wham! ?

  • The Versatile Chef

    #13 is making me go all DANCIN’ IN THE DAAAAAAAARK!!!!!

  • MyFavoriteColorIsGlitter

    Oh I’m sorry… Was I supposed to be looking at clothes? #10 = guuuuuuhhhhhh *wipes drool*

  • altermyego

    Jesus Christ! Are you trying to kill us? Ok, maybe I won’t die from looking at this post but I may faint. Thank you. Thank you so very much!

  • James

    Can I have that model in the top photo, to go, please? Clothes? There are clothes?

  • Gatto Nero

    I like the knitwear, the soft suede blazer and the grey check suit. Everything else is meh. (Except the models.)

  • somebody blonde

    It’s not Thursday, but there sure are some THIGHS up in here. Woof.

  • Shawn EH

    Well, the crotches are normal.

  • littlevase

    Holy crap.

    (sorry, I got nuthin)

  • cpjones79

    The last guy’s thighs and legs. Oh how I’d love to sit in his lap.

    • formerlyAnon

      Oh no. Because you can’t nibble what you’re sitting on.

  • Betsy

    Douche chills.

  • alyce1213

    These are really nice looking boys, with beautiful hair and thighs of life. Could’ve been more ethnically diverse, I think.

  • kimmeister

    Y’all can have the thighs; I’ll have the calves.

    • formerlyAnon

      Oh sweetie, I simply must work up from the instep. You can have the calves when I’ve moved on to the thighs.

  • MichelleRafter

    Love the clothes and the man hair. Is it too much to ask for a couple models in their 40s or 50s so I don’t always have to oogle hot guys my son’s age?

    • formerlyAnon

      See, I find models in their 40s and 50s lovely but depressing. Because given the men I see daily who are in their 40s and 50s, it’s just a reminder that the well-maintained 55-year old is so rare* that he’s highly unlikely to ever stoop to the likes of me.

      * if not rare, gay. I work with plenty of nicely-maintained 50-some year old men. They are unanimously gay. Don’t even have the decency to throw us a bone with bi.

  • MilaXX

    LEGS!!!! Cute collection, not loving the slipper/loafers.

  • gitchygitchymama

    hot models.
    precious clothes.

  • Man Dala

    Very good looking, masculine models. I like the collection too.

  • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

    10 IS a 10. WOOF.

  • quiltrx

    All that and a bag of THIGHS. Mmmmm….

  • demidaemon

    Fine ass men in fine ass clothes. I definitely like, but picture #2 is what I wanted in my teenage bedroom.

    Still, I really don’t get sweaters with shorts and I super don’t get sweaters with speedos.

  • rebeemoon

    With all the beauty on display here, I still managed to spot the wind chimes in look 6.

  • msl22

    this is so incoherent – are we seriously calling this a ‘collection’?

  • patreesho

    Chad White! Bless.

  • JynxTheCat

    I think i love every single piece!
    and every SINGLE model. THIGHS

  • oat327

    I’d commit war crimes for the blazer in 25 and the man in 10.
