Attention manly men of GW!

pjtexgirl(7b DFW)July 2, 2006

Have I got some fashion tips for you! Remember the leotards from the 80's? Flash Dance the movie? They are being re-introduced to the male population of the 2006! Do you have any left over pairs that were lost at the back of a closet? A nearby thrift shop with some in stock? You too can be a fashion tycoon! PJ

Here is a link that might be useful:

This is a good candidate for the show "What Not To Wear".

I can just see DH when I bring home a pair of tights for him to wear! He wouldn't be caught dead hanging around that fella, much less donning a pair his-self!

I think that guy is having a problem with them riding up on him. That is why he has that look on his face.

I wonder how they psych themselves up to go out in public wearing those get-ups! LOL

LMBO, I do believe my DH would have me committed if I brought home a pair of Manties for him.

I was at Dillards one time walking through the men's section where there was an underwear display complete with undies made out of shiny gold fabric, and various other fancy undies for men. There were 2 men shopping together seriously looking at the underwear, looking like they really wanted it. I couldn't believe, first of all, that Dillards would have that display right by the main walkway, and secondly, that any man, no matter what their preferences, would stand there shopping for them so comfortably. These men didn't even seem embarrased. I'm quite open minded but even that had me picking my jaw up off the floor.

Hehehehe, Sally, you are open minded, this is just so out there, lol
Although centuries ago men wore laced articles of clothing, lol
I have seen so may entertainers in tight spandex so it was funny to see being hawked to all men but the MANTIES, I couldn't get used to that and it would bee worse for DH's ago because I would constantly be laughing at him, lol

Well, I showed them to DH.

He saw the first pair and said "I ain't wearing those". End of discussion.

The runway shows are fun, but most of what is shown only sells to the wealthy, Hollywood types, who have nothing better to do, than turn heads. (grin)

Versache was one of my favorites for runway attire.

I looked up Versache and nary a leotard or frilly underwear! It looked mostly like modified grunge. Seattle here we come! Were you there taking pictures?(You're a photographer right? Or am I getting senile again?) PJ

Nope, PJ....I stopped shooting fashion. Got too old for all that, especially in Texas heat. I put in my share of time dealing with the frenzy, though.

The styles now, are not much to talk about, but at one time, Versache was really high fashion stuff. After his murder in Miami, it was never the same, although his sister tried hard.

Haven't seen anything in the past couple of years, in fashion, worth noting.

Most fashion photography has gone downhill also.....a victim of the digital revolution, where anyone good with a computer, thinks they can be a photographer. (Not that much different from when anyone with a decent 35 mm camera.....as opposed to a Kodak Brownie.....thought they could be a pro photographer.

These days, I often cringe, when I pass a fashion billboard....the work is so bad. (Especially "The Gap".)

There are a lot of "guys with cameras", but only a few good photographers.

Most of the photogs out there today, don't even know how to make a garment look good.

These days I "shoot" for a college, and go home at the end of the day, to a little peace and tranquility. When your days get numbered, you need to step back and enjoy as much of life as you can.

The only magazine ad I recall admiring in the past couple of years was of a model wearing an elegant black gown, a Doberman and a Christofle champagne bucket! The work was simply beautiful.

I would like to be able to take great pics or paint. That way you'd never run out of nice pictures to put up in your house. They'd be neat,have sentimental value, and you'd have plenty of them. PJ

Do the painting......photos fade, unless they are archival B&W silver images.

Almost all the art in my home now, is in oil paintings. (Mostly Asian knockoffs of famous works.....which is what I can barely afford.)

Have a couple of Kincaid knockoffs, one of which I like better than the original, with the minor changes that were made.

The originals are called Meadowwood Cottage and Mountain Chapel. One is 48x60 and the other is 30x40 oil on canvas.

Do have a couple of prints also, from G. Harvey. One is called Teton Valley, and I still haven't indentified the title on the other.....it is seldom seen, and has been sold out. One day, I may have to remove the back cover on the frame, and find out what it is called.

The rest.....who knows? We don't have any space left for anything larger than a 5x7. (smile)

How did I miss this?? We all agree the manpanties look remarkably like our grandmothers underwear, except for the bows. On the plus side, I guess, if you run out of clean drawers you can wear his!
My brother is a construction worker, somehow I just can't picture him in these or the tights for that matter.
I couldn't get my DH into tights for the ren faire, don't even want to suggest manpanties!
What a hoot! So who ordered the bows and roses???
TallyHO!

BTW, he was grossed out by the "manties", and threatened divorce if any showed up by surprise...especially at Christmas in front of everyone! (he read my mind!) hahahahaha I'm lucky he has a great sense of humor,,,but I don't think it would stretch that far.... :-)
Hey....my son (he's 32) would be a good "target".....ROTFLMBO at that idea, imagining the look on his face!!! hahahahahahaha Oooh...I'm such a li'l stinker!!
