Lets Judge a Book by its Cover: Mens Skirts

by Accidental Bear

I cannot believe I am about to say this but, I’m not against men in skirts. I mean, hell, easy access, right? But lets talk about the visuals of mens skirts, not any political jibber-jabber about men being able to wear skirts too. Lets keep it strictly to appearance. What’s this idea of making a skirt look manly? It’s like squeezing a lemon and wanting it to taste like a grape. So, dudes, if you going to throw on a skirt, and let the boys breath down stairs, take a good long look in the mirror and think to yourself, do I actually look good, or do i just like the idea of a skirt.

S/S 2011 Lookbook: Skirts For Men

Feminine style for men is adopted by every designer that matters ? from the tradionalists like Givenchy, Emporio Armani and Calvin Klein to the edgy types such as Ann Demeulemeester, Vivienne Westwood and Commes des Garcons, just to name a few. Sping/Summer 2011 will see a drastic change in the way men dress up and a blurring line between masculinity and femininity. Cropped tees, One-shouldered tops, Leggings and even Skirts are readily introduced to the world of menswear, bringing about a fresh breath to the previously monotonous industry. And the good news is the trend is already catching on!

The men?s skirt has been all over the news lately. Menswear is dramatically re-invented for the 21st century in catwalk show featuring men in designer skirts, dresses, and kilts. Internationally renowned designers re-appropriate the skirt for men, a garment which until relatively recently was reserved for the ladies.

Proper men?s skirts don?t look feminine at all. In fact, when you see a man wearing one of those skirts for men, it displays a lot of strength and confidence. The skirts represent an alternative to conventional menswear, which can be as comfortable and elegant as it is radical. It really does impress people even though it?s only a piece of clothing.

Make your skirts look ?manly?: It’s usually quite easy to find women’s skirts that will match men’s tops like polo shirts, suits or jackets. And if you really want to take things up a notch to the northern part of the body, men can usually wear a great deal of women’s tops. T-shirts and tanks lend themselves to unisex wear quite well.

As a final note, gender flexibility in dress has almost always been more acceptable for the style and fashion oriented crowd. As you can see, we have a strong history of cross-sex trends. This small step develops further to legitimize gender blurring in dress and dissolving ideas of ?heterosexual normalcy,? and thus, opening the creative channels of personal adornment to all economic strata. Contemporary fashion is about pushing limits. No rules, no must, no have-tos, it’s about defining yourself without definitions. Transgress boundaries by disregarding it completely, reinvent it. This is why fashion is sometimes incomprehensible, out there and thus avant garde.

Have fun and play around with different styles and different kinds of clothing. Style and fashion are all about personal choice and in spite of what the snotty little fashion writers like to imagine, there’s really no such thing as ‘in’ or ‘out’. If it compliments you, it is TOTALLY IN!

Long live the fashion revolution! Check out TheUrbanApparel.com’s great selection ofMen’s Skirts now.

Reichen, Shut the fuck up and just be pretty to look at. That strategy will take you further than filming yourself cracked out, sleep eyed, in bed praying to something that doesn’t exist, god.

This Is An 8-Minute Video Of Reichen Lehmkuhl Saying His Catholic Prayers Before Bed

via Queerty

“This gonna be the first time in the history of my life that I’m going to say goodnight … to anyone who’s watching.” Call up the Guinness folks stat, because that sounds like a record! And so begins an eight-minute video, recorded last night, of A-List: New York star Reichen Lehmkuhl showing off his nighttime routine, which includes saying his prayers (also a first! on video!) In addition to the people suffering in Japan, Reichen hopes god blesses all the contestants on American Idol, his own show, and his handlers. So: priorities. Now doesn’t it feel like you’re Rodiney, laying right next to him in bed?

Johnny Knoxville Goes All the Way Gay w/ Bear Tattoo

by Accidental Bear
 

Johnny, I just wanted to say you are my favorite little Jackass. Stevo gave you tough competition, after all, how can you loose while giving us gays so much full frontal. Your Grrrrr tattoo is hilarious and shows you true, charm and charisma. If you ever come down on your luck, I always have a couch for you to sleep on and I promise not  to throw pool balls at your crotch. As Sandra Bernhard once said, ” As long as I have a face, you always have a seat. Table for 2.”

Johnny Knoxville Got A Tattoo Celebrating His Gay Bear Fans

Via Queerty

Last year while promoting Jackass 3-D, Johnny Knoxville took his film to the Los Angeles bar The Eagle for a screening in front of grizzlies and bears. It was so cute! But that’s not where Johnny’s affinity for his gay fans ends. Promoting Jackass 3.5 on last night’s Conan, Johnny reveals he went so far as to get some gay ink.
