Our Long National Nightmare is Over!

For those of you waiting on pins and needles to get your hands on Thom Browne's "afforable" new menswear line, its time to break out the plastic. Barneys.com just released the collection and you better believe some bare ankles are on full display. -- Thom Grey

Men's Eyebrow Shaving Guide: Made in collaboration with hair and make-up artist Keiko Obana, this is a special "otaku mayu" (man eyebrow) beauty tool which acts like a frame or stencil for you to groom carefully, giving you perfectly shaped eyebrows.

Your Say

Some variation on women's hem lines?
If men's "hem lines" are going up, doesn't that mean that the s**t is getting too deep?

Sorry, I was interrupted because I had to go throw up. I was going to say..... um......wait a minute....I'll be right back.

The perfect gift for Rowan Williams.

The first guy I see wearting pants like that is going to lose them. I mean that in a bad way.

I have this sudden urge to beat up the two models in the dork suits. It is my natural male instinct to want to do so.

I will, of course, refrain from such barbaric behavior, and instead flush their heads in a toilet.

Of course, I added the second post for emphais to show that I really, really mean business. :-)

A little something for the metrosexual in your life? Naw, better to smother him with a pillow.

OK. Both the coat and the pants are too short. The coat should fall to the first knuckle of the thumb, and the bottom of the cuff should *at least* be down to the top of the shoe (break optional).

First thought on this look - the kid needs a new suit, because he's outgrown this one. But, for the generation of extended childhood/childishness, I suppose it's appropriate.

Casual Friday = tank top with FUBU necktie, sandals and cod-piece.

Thanks Gator, I was going with Uggs and a thong again.

BTW, whence came this bizarre fascination with men's eyebrows? I lived over fifty years without anyone trying to trim my eyebrows, now I have to have a five minute pissing contest with the barber to keep him from hitting them with the clippers.

I once saw a katoey in Bangkok wearing something like this.

Don, you probably don't need the help, but I'd be happy to give you a hand with the swirlie. Anybody who would wear this deserves one, or maybe two, just for good measure.

Casca, that's why I bought clippers and cut my own hair. Since I just buzz it close anyway, I don't see the point in paying someone $20 to do what I can do myself in ten minutes. And no arguments about the eyebrows, either.

Unless there's a pun about obsessive behaviour, the name is "Otoko Mayu", not "Otaku Mayu".

Somewhere, Pee Wee Herman has the last laugh.
