So, I planned to do an “i want” post around SpinTO when I signed on as a media sponsor. Initially, it was going to be a menswear and womenswear post, but I decided to make it all about me. The i want: Sporty SpinTO Style post went over well. Well the boys want their own post now. So this is the Male version of i want: Sporty SpinTO Style aka the Male Model Edition.
We can’t have a sporty style post without Canadian boys, DSquared2. This is the bread and butter.
This is for the daring man. While the more modest can get into the Solid Gold them with these little gold shorts.
Of course, Dolce & Gabbana, you can’t do sporty without them.
These short shorts for men are perfectly acceptable to me 🙂
To round out the list we need Mr. Roberto Cavalli, which should inspire men looking to wear swimsuits.
So, this is my idealized version of male Sporty SpinTO Style. There is no corresponding bicycle short trend in menswear right now. The closest is the short shorts, which I like with the right set of legs. What will you be wearing at SpinTO guys? Get your tickets.
SpinTO is a fundraising project that kicks off with a party on May 15 celebrating the 600 km Friends for Life Bike Rally from Toronto to Montreal in support of the Toronto People with AIDS Foundation.
This project will be lead by a community-media site at SpinTO.ca, a place where stories about the journey riders in the Rally will be told through new media including blogging and video podcasting. These stories will continue to be told well beyond the kick-off party leading up to the ride to Montreal taking place in July 26-31, 2009. SpinTO has been organized by a team of community contributors, led by Mark Kuznicki and Adam Schwabe, both riders in the 2009 Bike Rally.
Philip Sparks Ready to Wear – Fall 2009- 2010 Lookbook
Philip told me that his theme for fall was Peter and the Wolf. I thought it was an interesting concept. I had no idea that Philip would execute it to such perfection. I’m in love with this menswear collection. It’s the best Philip Sparks collection yet. The everything about this lookbook is perfection. The models, the backdrop, the clothing, the fur. Congratulations on such a wonderful collection Philip, I can’t wait to see this in March.
Although not part of its cultural tradition, Japan fully embraces the fun – and commercial spirit – of Christmas. As the festive season draws nearer, Monocle’s house model hits the streets to fill his basket for a toasty night with an equally hot companion.
Monocle’s male editorials are my favourite right now. See previous.
This edition of geekiviews features a guest blogger, The Grumpy Owl. He’s a guy and the Cromwell and Cruthers Shaving Oil is for men. So it made sense that he review it instead of me.
I hate oiling up my body. It’s the sort of the thing that one should have a person for. Preferably young, buxom and foreign. So, when Geekigirl gave me a plastic vial of Cromwell and Cruthers Shaving Oil, I viewed the product with some trepidation.
Oil is bad enough but shaving is worse. The last time I combined the two, I spent an entire weekend cleaning hair, blood and assorted perfumes from my sheets. It was not an experience I was looking to repeat.
But geekigirl quickly explained that I was to use this product to shave myself. Specifically, my face. While alone.
I might not like oil or shaving but I do love my face. So I decided to give this shaving oil a whirl. Having used it for the past few weeks, I now feel competent to review the stuff.
It’s pretty good.
At four dollars and fifty cents a vial, it’s reasonably priced. Certainly much cheaper than hiring a barber to shave your face and not much more expensive than a can of foam. Although it lacks the proto-erotic thrill of having a man stroke your throat with a razor, it smells quite nice and provides a close shave. It also lasts quite a long time.
But I wouldn’t expect anyone to believe mere words. After all, I’ve been bribed with a five dollar vial of shaving oil. A lot of bloggers come cheaper than that. So I’m providing you with photo evidence.

I expect you can draw your own conclusions from that.
If I was to ever dress alike with a man, I would want us to be wearing this.
This is the genius of McQueen. Without seeing the images, would I never consider a black and white ombre dress and suit combination, but here I am, salivating. The dress is 10 times better than the suit. The dress is fantastic.
I really love this look from Neil Barrett’s collection.
Two things to note.
1. Stirrup pants on Men are wrong, wrong, wrong. And in leather infinitely wrong.
2. The new pant silhouette for women is the cigar shape (3rd Thumbnail, click for a bigger look). It certainly doesn’t work for everyone. If you see a hint of hip, forget it. Neil Barrett does some nice ones though.
