MENSWEAR MONDAY: Bathing Beauties

Summer renders me practically useless. These days, almost all I think about is going to the beach. Laying in the sun, swimming in the ocean, looking at boys in bathing suits, what’s not to like? Well, one thing I tend not to like: those horrible, gigantic shorts that most males consider adequate beachwear. Listen guys, unless you actually have something to hide, do your fellow beachgoers a favor and get a real bathing suit. Men tend to be blessed with smaller butts and thighs than their female counterparts and yet they’re the ones who get to cover up? Ridiculous. Gentlemen, if briefs are a bit much for you, at least opt for loose yet tailored shorts, like Vivienne Westwood’s rose adorned suit or Moschino’s patriotic take. As always, Stylesight is here to inspire your future swimwear choices, but the real question is: are you man enough to pull off these fitted looks?

    you neglected to mention that men are also made without an ounce of cellulite so they should flaunt their sponge-free butts.
