Roy for Self Edge “SE” Duck Pants

by Accidental Bear

Tough ass pants with internal stash pocket for “tobacco.” These pants are made to have the hell beat out of them. Or just cute for bopping around the city and catching mustard droppings from your downtown hotdog. “Easily the most labor intensive garment Roy has produced yet, these cotton duck pants are another level of flavorful. From the hidden coin (stash) pocket to the psychotically assembled pocket bags these are best viewed completely inside out.  From the outside they’re built like a diesel truck and from the inside they’re more like a peacock. Self Edge works with Roy Denim on a pair of selvedge cotton duck canvas pants woven at North Carolina at Cone Mills.

Dressing Taller: 10 Tips for Short Men brought to you by The Art of Manliness Website

10 Tips on Dressing Taller

FYI – I put these ten tips in orders of practicality and cost.  I realize some of these are beyond some men’s resources or not options worth considering–but I lay them out there so that you can make that decision yourself.

1. Monochromatic Color Themes

Along the same lines as minimizing visual clutter, removing contrasting color from your appearance helps streamline the way you look. Keeping all your clothes within a fairly consistent color theme, especially a dark one, will create an illusion of height. Different color shades are fine–just try to keep it loosely monochrome.

When you do wear different colors or different shades of the same color, try to weight the darker colors toward the bottom half of your body. That way people’s attention starts down near your feet and travels upward. Dark trousers with a lighter shirt create a lengthening effect; a darker shirt with lighter pants shortens your appearance.

Lee 101 Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection: Woodsy

by Accidental Bear

 Woods, but the real test is, Can you swing an axe? Back in the day Lee was un-cool hand me downs. Through the test of time and durability Lee is stronger than ever. Woodsmen, dock workers, and laborers alike are the inspiration for the Lee 101 collection. “A highlight of the collection is the Logger Jean – sturdily constructed it is fitted with extra durable and functional details such as suspenders and additional pockets, it is available in a selection of 5 finishes (2 rigid, 3 washes).”  You will be protected by the city elements you city slicker: rough train seats, close encounters with rogue nails sticking out under your  work space or desk and unexpected downpours of acid rain.

US Airways Lets Scantily Cross-dresser Fly but Ejects Man with Low Pants|Watch Magnificent Video Animation

by Accidental Bear

Who is to decide what is “proper” attire or not to fly. On many flights I have been on between SFO and HNL I have seen many hoochie-mama bikini tops and straight up skin. Cross dressing is in, nut baggy pants are out?

US Airways has acknowledged that less than a week before having a college student arrested for allegedly refusing to hike up his saggy pants while boarding, the airline allowed a man wearing little more than women’s underwear, black thigh-high stockings and heels to fly.

Mjolk; Modern Day Peter Pan Looks/ Winter 2011

by Accidental Bear

This collection is for a modern day Peter Pan. I am dying to find or make an occasion to wear red pants, pink jacket combo. This is my introduction to Mjolk, but I am now all ears. I must confess that this may be a gratuitous moment to post a ginger model. Don’t hate , congratulate. Gingers unite! 

Mjolk Autumn/Winter 2011 Looks

via Selectism 

Following up on the Mjolk video shown recently, we bring you styled looks from their forthcoming Autumn/Winter 2011 collection. The collection features some of the more interesting knits for the season. While slightly oversized, they fall “flat” on the body, like many of the collection’s tops (standouts shown above). Trousers run the range with drop crotch and fitted looks that should work for most. (cqc)
