Men’s fashion the Whale Way

This season ‘Modern Camo’ is hot hot  hot (apparently) and so is the ‘ Animal print ‘ according to Simon Chilvers from The Guardian:

This is ‘Modern Camo’…far from being hot, hot, hot it looks gay, gay, gay to me.

This is Whaleoil Camo:


When you really don’t want to be seen this is the look for you, not the accessorising as well with useful things. Unfortunately the Modern Camo look does not offer the same kind of face blurring protection which is a pity because most real men wouldn’t want to be seen dead in that namby pamby metro-sexual little number.

Simon Chilvers then talks about ‘Animal Print’. This is what he thinks it is…some hipster thing:

This is Whaleoil Animal Print:


I call this look ‘Bringing home the bacon’.

It was invented by Iain Tolladay.

The 23-year-old industrial design graduate has combined his training with his passion for hunting to invent a backpack-style harness capable of carrying wild game weighing up to 100kg. The harness redistributes the load from the back and shoulders to the hips, in the same way a hiking pack does.

Right now we have sorted out proper attire for the blog not some hipsters idea of what proper attire is we can get on with things.

    I wouldn’t call the first pic gay – more like creepy in a kinda matrix sort of way

    Shit you would be run out of town around here if you wore something like that displayed in the top picture, it screams poof . And what happened to his hair, was he inside the baler creasing it and rub his head on the belts?

      Just one of those metrosexual cork soaking thingys I reckon, he could be wearing leather strides though

  • Kacanga

    Looks like what your average socialist greenie would wear

    The words Male and Fashion are an oxymoron. Real guys have better things to be thinking about than pretending they are camo-fashionistas. Slicked hair, sunnies, faux-camo shirt with matching “jumper” – um, he’s a fag, ok?
