THE CLOTHES TRULY DO MAKE THE MAN.
And so, as we spring into spring here in the Great White North, we set out to offer a variety of tips over the next two posts to answer what every Blogger Boy worth their salt is wondering.
WHAT TO WEAR? HOW TO BE HIP?
CAN WITHIN WITHOUT HELP ME GET WITH IT?
The answer most definitely is yes. We've scoured the earth for the latest in men's wear, we've sent our fashion floozies far and wide to answer one simple question.
How can the discerning male make his way as he sheds his long underwear for his bermuda shorts and knee-high socks? The answers await below.
AROUND THE HOUSE
No true man of the world can consider himself "in" if he doesn't have Perry Como slippers. The ones shown above are typical, comfortable and can be worn with or without socks.
Note the professional stance of the model below, showing the versatility and comfort factor, this time with socks (anklet socks, mind you; more on that later). These cost about $10. They're a steal.
Staying with home loungewear, it's a little known fact: plaid is back in.
And while it may be true that most males such as Homo Escapeons blog in their underwear, there are few out there who don't wander around the house in flannel PJ bottoms.
Here are two examples of what to look for.
If you can get little signs put on them for color contrast (as above; Toba is short for Manitoba), you'll be one of the swinginest guys on your block.
OUT AND ABOUT
If Perry Como slippers are indispensable to the fashion-conscious male, runners -- the older and uglier the better -- are an absolute must. And if they have Nike swooshes on them, all the better.
This same rule applies to a staple of any spring wardrobe, the ultra-hip athletic shorts, whether you're a pro sportsman or a wussy weinie who couldn't catch or throw if your life depended on it.
You should have as many of these in your repertoire as possible.
With as many Nike swooshes as you can find.
