Monday Man Candy

Now that I know I have a few style-savvy lads reading this blog, I have a legitimate excuse to share some really, really, ridiculously good looking men's fashion with you all! The title may give away my ulterior motives just a little, but let's pretend I'm doing this for the guys. After all, what better way to start the week than cheery colours on brooding Magnum-esque men?!


As much as I love Zoolander, male models don't usually impress me, let alone catch my attention. Perhaps I'm just jaded, but they always seem to look exactly the same, and often their shoots can be similarly uninspiring. These two editorials however are an exception to my anti-male model mantra. It could just be the clashing colours and the dilapidated neon lights that caught my eye, but both Eugen Bauder (for GQ Russia) and Garrett Neff (photographed by Paola Kudacki for Hercules Mag) seem to bring a little extra to the table, even if they're just alternating between Magnum, Blue Steel and Ferrari. I'd listen to their eugoogolies any day.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have the strangest urge to crank some George Michael and slurp down an orange mocha frappuccino. How odd.

My dad's wedding jacket looked just like the one the guy is wearing in the second picture!!!
Maybe I'm getting too old, but although the pictures are great, I find most of the fashion really tacky.

kanmuri - Now that you mention it, that probably explains why the turquoise suit looks so familiar! I'm with you though, these looks are great for photographs, but I think I'd have a very hard time keeping a straight face if I saw anyone wearing them in real life :D

It reminds me of the 80's. The bright colors.

Love the lounge-singer jackets!

You might be interested to know that it looks like those shoots were done at the neon sign graveyard in Nevada (where old casino signs go to die).

Like you, male models hardly every catch my attention, because i agree, nothing really stands out, they all look the same, and I guess that is the point, but i dont findthat attractive. But there were some in this litle lovely post that caught my eye, great job, dahling!

But most important, Im SO ready for a George Michael dance party. WOOOOOO!! Freeeeeeedom...

Love the bright, saturated colours. Man Candy is always a good way to begin the week :)

Charles Henry said...

Great colors.

Ash said...

Hmm, extremely hot guys with extremely bad hair...

Joanne Licsko said...

I agree with Ash...extremely bad hair. However, I found myself loving some of the jackets. In fact, they are stunningly beautiful!

Leah said...

it bugs me that the only way men can be fashion-forward is to wear suits.
they're very limited in what they can experiment with in this women-exclusive world, really.

Haha, Zoolander is my favorite movie! But you're right, these photos are very alluring!

Oh la la, if only boys dressed better on a daily basis!
