Real Men Don’t Shop, Help for the fashion Phobic Meets Gay Machismo

by Accidental Bear

August 8, 2011 IssueThere is an enormous amount of stigma attached around machismo in the our gay world. Some gay men simply do not want to ‘look gay’. That’s a whole can of worms I just dropped so for this moment we focus on shopping. Shopping is for girls and sissy boy’s has been the message spread in mainstream media of the past. To break away from this thinking is not so easy for some of our gay brother who are trying to hold to there ‘manliness” or not comfortable in their gay skin they have been born into. Otherwise known as internal-homophobia. I fall prey to this as well. After buying a delicious $20- salad recently from San Francisco’s Firewood Cafe in the Castro district, I found myself rolling down the sides of the ‘retail shop’ looking bag, so I wouldn’t look like a gay on a shopping spree.

In the Ralph Lauren mansion, the polo player logo appears on shirts and knits, sometimes three inches tall. Paul Stewart dresses men who want to look quietly dapper in suits of mixed American and English design. Bergdorf Goodman Men’s has exquisite Continental suits at exquisite prices. Designers include Isaia, Etro, Dries Van Noten, and Thom Browne. Tom Ford is no place for the unhip or chunky.

Ralph Lauren Denim Safari Jacket = NO

by Accidental Bear

On so many levels this is NOT cute. The name alone should make that clear, Denim Safari Jacket. On a side not, Ralph, I’m sorry. I’m not even going to touch the subject of those sandals the model is wearing.

via Selectism

Ralph Lauren has always had an eye for true American inspired clothing. They’ve recently released their new “Rugged” Collection with a couple outerwear pieces and accessories. The “Denim Safari Jacket” was designed to have a really distressed aesthetic which gives it a somewhat 60’s styled look. The jacket features a pointed collar and button placket with RL 1967 buttons, bellow pockets at the chest,
