Don’t Judge A Man By His Bag

You can’t deny it. Almost every guy you see in NYC carries a bag.

I mean everything from a nylon pouch with a string, to the ubiquitous Jansport backpack, to messenger bags and briefcases of all shapes and sizes. I’m definitely not referring to the dreaded metrosexual man purse or a fanny pack. People, including guys, in New York City (and not just in NYC) carry around a lot of crap and we need some way of schlepping it around. … read more

Are You Ready To Make This Your Personal Summer Of Love?

As always, things are upside down in good old NYC. Somehow this past winter took a left turn on Route 80 and missed us. Throughout those dreary days though, you were checking out Page Six and the photos of young Hollywood flaunting their beach bodies in St. Barths.

There is one execution focused on men and according to the … read more

I don’t hate Valentine’s Day. I dread it, and I’d like to have a chat with St. Valentine. He may be a saint, but he’s got a lot of explaining to do.  The myth behind the man is as confounding as the commercial celebration of romantic love that sprang from his legend. Was he beaten to death with clubs, beheaded after restoring sight and hearing to the daughter of his jailer, or was … read more
