Pot Bellies are IN!
For all the Hoboken guys patiently waiting for their guts to “come back in style,” your time has arrived!
“It’s hip to be round…”
The NY Times this week ran an article about how it’s now apparently not so bad to be sporting a bit of a pillow top!
“I sort of think the six-pack abs obsession got so prissy it stopped being masculine,” is how Aaron Hicklin, the editor of Out, explains the emergence of the Ralph Kramden. What once seemed young and hot, for gay and straight men alike, now seems passé. Like manscaping, spray-on tans and other metrosexual affectations, having a belly one can bounce quarters off suggests that you may have too much time on your hands.
“It’s not cool to be seen spending so much time fussing around about your body,” Mr. Hicklin said.
One person from the article suspected that there is only one Abercrombie & Fitch model in existence:
“When do you ever see that guy, anyway?” Mr. Morea asked, referring to those legendary Men’s Health cover models, with their rippling torsos and famished smiles. “The only time you really see that guy, he’s standing in front of an Abercrombie & Fitch store.” Perhaps, he suggested, there is really only one of them. “It’s the same guy. They just move him around.”
Just a fun Friday post that should enable you to proudly enjoy your happy hour beers!
