InstaFinds: Mens Fashion

  Say what you want about the narcissism associated with Instagram, but if you’re looking for inspiration of any kind, you can find it there. I’m feeling a bit inspired to further explore my personal style. Maybe you will too…. I don’t see enough deep Vs or swoop necks. Add this to your wardrobe! I…

Modish Man: Redressing The Mannequin – Jumpsuits

It’s about time that we rip men’s fashion at the seams. As the idea of “dressing your gender” slowly bleeds away, people with penises, particularly in the United States, are beginning to have a fashion uprising. Fuck your rigid idea of masculinity, that suggests I have limited pool of clothing styles to pull from, when…

The Reluctant Sartorialist

For the majority of my existence on this planet, my perception of fashion has been pervaded with judgments of pretentiousness, sexism, classism, and often, inherent racism. Yet, now it seems the less I take judgments from the outside world, sent in my direction, personally, (judgments that, for someone like me, can seem to come from…

c’est tres chic, no?: the cape/cloak

Sebastian Cummings When I think of capes, the first thing that comes to mind are The Incredibles. If you’ve watched that movie, you understand the danger in wearing a cape… if you’re a super hero, which I am, but on my off days… I think its a good look. I don’t like coats, I just…

c’est tres chic, no?: overalls for men

Sebastian Cummings OshKosh B’gosh… remember them? That’s who made my overalls when I was a wee lad. But, now I’m grown… and I think I want them back. Call it a quarter life crisis, but they’re kinda comfy and, on days I feel like being a little more revealing, are already a complete outfit. I’m…

c’est tres chic, no?: crop tops for men

The Crop Top: it’s coming back. i will will it into being. Why did it stop? A heteronormative desire for men to appear as masculine and separate from women, who can, for the most part, rock crop tops without criticism? I know as a homoromantic, I sometimes shy away from things seen as flamboyant as…

c’est tres chic, no?: athleisure

Up until recently, I never considered wearing anything remotely resembling sweats in public. Mostly because my parents raised me to think that because I’m brown, people read sweats on me as poor or thug… Anyway… I started seeing hotties on the streets wearing more stylish sweats and it got me to thinking, I should rim…

c’est tres chic, no?: men in skirts

I’ve loved skirts since I was a child. When I was really young, I could stretch the neck of a t-shirt to fit around my waste and when no one was home, I would walk around the house like it was a skirt. As an adult, I’ve considered wearing skirts, but never came across one…

c’est tres chic, no?: leggings with shorts… for men?

I’m not usually the biggest fan of shorts. I don’t know what it is…. maybe it’s hard for me to find a cut that I like on my body… I’m not built like the people these clothes are made for (my butt is tres big). So, in the Spring, Summer, and Fall, I’m usually still…

c’est tres chic, no?: Etro spring suit

Etro Spring 2016 Menswear I don’t know about you all, but I get bored as shit with many of the suit options for men. The same old blue and black and that loose leg fit….ehhhhhhhh! But, when I saw Etro’s Spring line, I saw hope for a better future. This is a men’s suit I…
