We’ve been neglecting you. We’re sorry; the Easter Lindt hangover went on far too long this year (that’s what happens when you combine premium chocolate with allergy meds and wash them down with Jack Daniels WHO KNEW???). Here, to make up for it, are a bevy of brawnies from the Tom of Finland clothing line‘s fall/winter 1998 show, inspired by the (in)famous and iconic gay illustrator. What’s surprising to me is how good these clothes are; not jokey (except Mister Hot Pants and Earflap Hat) and essentially classics cut with an eye to enhancing a sexy silhouette.
Haute Couture is not always deconstructed georgette ballgowns or starched and origami’d canvas batwings. Sometimes it’s Giant Pants.
This image of a frankly fabulous Hermes wool jumpsuit comes to us from the well-named Giant Pants of the Thirties blog, which features, you guessed it, Giant Pants of the Thirties. For those of us with a PBS-nurtured fondness for Oxford Bags or Beach Pajamas, this is a visual feast not to be skipped. Who wants anorexic pants when they can have voluptuousness in twill, moleskin or corduroy?

Rollerblades are so 20th Century; the new newness is, once again, Roller skates. They have the added advantage of weighing half a ton, so you get an even better workout than blading!
