Gifts For Him II

If you’re shopping for a poseur, this is the best coffee table book ever (not counting the billion dollar Mohammed Ali enterprise by Taschen, of course.) At $1,450, it is a lavish waste of money, the better to showcase his pretensions to coolness.

How awesome is it to add a studded leather cover to this book about leather motorcycle jackets? The only thing better would be to add the word “Moto,” which has somehow been overlooked. Oh well, you can’t have everything, even for $1,450.

Would you like to hear these two douches talk about their book? The one on the left reminds me of Bruno, and the other one is a classically annoying and self-important Brit with a fetish for punk. Go here.

Isn’t it funny how the harder you try to be cool, the uncooler you are?

    So true. The thing about coolness is that it is inherent in a person; a part of who they are. Once you start analyzing it, distilling it and then selling it (or buying it), you cease to be cool. What a pair of assholes!

    Nah…I think I’l stick with the cedar-infused cedar.

    Can you do an un-cool list, sort of like the cool list, but not? xoxox

    A cowl neck and the Dry Look coif? I’m supposed to listen to him? Uh, no. Where’s my gin?

    The ginger Brit reminds me of a cologne-soaked uber-douche who once hit on me relentlessly for ~6 hours with such classic lines as “Your lips say no, but your eyes say yes…” UGH.

    Both Bruno and Ginger seem inauthentic and pleathery, and despite their pseudo-punk moto-mojo posturing, their vibe is a lot more “men who look like old lesbians” than Joey Ramone.

    Can someone please do a coffee table book of men who look like old lesbians? Please?

    MizLottie- when I saw that picture I had to google “men’s cowl neck” to see if that was really a thing. Who knew?

    With a deft roll at the neck, clever Horst has taken a head-hugging hooded leotard from Mummenshanz-daywear to Schprockets-for-evening.

    “Isn’t it funny how the harder you try to be cool, the uncooler you are?” Same goes for bloggers who have to tell you they are funny; proof they are the exact opposite. It’s so pathetic yet every other site professes to be some kind of humor blog.

    Any guy with coiffed hair would look so cool making a Starbucks run with that book tucked under one arm and these glasses to shield him from the sun!
