More Gift Ideas

My biggest problem with Christmas parties is not knowing what to wear (okay, it's really not a problem at all, because I never get invited to any parties).

But, if you're wondering what to buy your manly man for this holiday season, one of the catalogs had this awesome suggestion.

Let's face it, NOTHING says "seething cauldron of testosterone boiling under the surface" like pink and green giraffes. So get that special stud something that screams "I'M A HOT SEX MACHINE!"

Didn't David Lee Roth wear something like this but in lycra in the 1980s?

Damn. I need to order in some brain bleach, because that is...yow.

Old MD Girl said...

They're almost as good as the orange capri pants my brother in law wears!

somedood in my med school class always wore pink seersucker pants for exams. i know we had a dress code, but pink seersucker?! *vomit*

i wouldn't go within 10 feet of a heterosexual* man wearing pants like that unless it was a costume party. even then... that's just wrong.

(*none of the gay men i know would be caught dead making such a fashion faux pas!)

Say, might that be from the John Daly collection? ;)

From the top, well, the green tie was a little 'eyebrows-raising' but I like the color.

And, the pants, well it looks like something from Peter Maxx or Heinz Edelmann, 60's retro. Wasn't that attractive then, and still is not.

Pale colors with a lot of hue density or 'hotness' like red and orange tend to make the organs they cover look 'bigger'. Manly men usually have muscular thighs--but, 'fat thighs' on men might not be that attractive.

That coloring of a shirt for a man with a skinny chest might be overlooked for the appearance of 'abs', but what man likes to look fluffy?

This is how the party in San Francisco.

Or so I hear.

ahem*

Frantic Pharmacist said...

Holy crap. What catalog is this?
All I can think of is the "J. Peterman" catalog from Seinfeld
("urban sombrero", anyone?)

Is no one noticing that those two are a matched set? Those seething cauldrons came to the party dressed in coordinated outfits, so I'm pretty sure that testosterone is reserved for each other. Alas, women of the world, we shall have to turn to each other for comfort this season . . .

The Meshleg Man said...

Oddly enough, the front guy's pants look exactly the same on my computer screeen both pre- and post-emesis.

Kim said...

That was out of a Lily Pulitzer catalog wasn't it?

Lily is great for little girls and women of a certain age, but not so great for men....

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Kim is the WINNER!

Ninjamedic said...

My brother had a very similar pair back in the 70's, but his were purple and yellow and made from a delightful polyester material that would melt should he stand too near to a naked flame.

I never thought I'd say this, but I think that purple and yellow polyester may actually be better than those monstrosities. My GAWD, who made those horrid things?!

Doris said...

Giraffes?

REALLY?

>:p

Cal said...

I am squinting to try to see the giraffes... and thank you for letting us know which catalog it is from, so we can now easily track it down.

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Cal- the giraffes are the green things on the hideous pants. Look closely. But not too closely, or you'll burn out your retina.

The Good Cook said...

Does anyone remember International Male catalog? Even that mag wouldn't carry those pants.

Kim said...

Yay I win! LOL! I "know" Lily because I grew up in Florida and have seen these clothes on the rich asshats that populate the southern florida landscape. It's the perfect example of money not necessarily equaling class.

Of course having said that I really do like the little girl dresses. I just generally refuse to spend more than $30 on a dress that will inevitably end up getting completely trashed by my little tomboy.

Julie said...

No, just no ....

Danimal said...

Ironically, that's pretty much how I always pictured Dr. Grumpy in my mind!

Looks like he gave up trying to figure out what color socks to wear. Seriously, it looks like something ate a preppie and puked a pair of pants.

I think those models shudda demanded an extra compensatory fee for having to wear their real faces posing as medical personnel in those faerie duds.

Beloved Parrot said...

You're all missing one vital element here: there is a LOT of heavy drinking going on.

Phathead said...

I've already got the matching banana hammock

Miss Kismet said...

Here's my take on the models here...

Giraffe pant guy knows how wrong it is that he's having to model this fashion abortion, so he demanded a tie and jacket. He loses points for wearing dark shoes without socks though, not to mention his blatant "look at my expensive watch" pose.

Douche in the background is all about the party. His pose says "look at my package in these pink pants!" Plus he's wearing aviators, which are so wrong for just about everybody.

Final analysis? Fucking hideous, no matter how you pose or light the models.

Those pants look like one of those pictures you look at to find out if you're colorblind.

minimedic said...

If you look closely at Mr. Giraffe Pants there, he has this homicidal look on his face...probably directed at whoever talked him into wearing that...abomination...

I'm convinced Mr. Pink Pants in the background is drinking vodka and laughing at Mr. Giraffe Pants.

River said...

Looking at those would give you a hangover without the need for drinking.

Chris said...

I thought my uncle had the worst pants ever, but these put Uncle Art to shame. If he was still alive, I would be ordering these pants for him right now. He had red, white and blue PLAID pants (this was the 70s/80s), which he wore with a canvas belt that had a nautical motif. Really. God, I loved that man. He was awesome (and color blind, obviously). Did I mention he wore brown saddle shoes with said plaid pants?

MCT said...

is this lilly pulitzer?

Fiz said...

I feel like I've been drinking too much! It kills my eyes , which I need to check any way! Yugh!

Lisa L said...

chris and miss kizmet? you had me laughing till i cried! thank you :) (and thank *you* dr grumpy)

ERP said...

Do you get a entered into a contest for a free trip voucher for an all expense paid trip to Key West for the annual Gay Pride parade when you buy these?

Luke said...

I may be fashionably challenged, but the green pants with the pink payterns may just be the coolest pants I have ever seen!
Or maybe I am a neurology student.
