Soft Paris lingerie aims to destroy British feminism and crap on your lawn

soft paris

SOFT Paris is a French knickers and undies company (that’s lingerie – ed) aiming to teach the clueless, potato-sack-clad British woman how to dress for sex. To promote the brand, the company has issued its 10 steps to seduction. Most British men would be happy with availability and warmth. But we can all be more. Says Soft Paris:

Why do English women hunch over, either shuffling or stomping? This is not seductive. Take the time to look around you, proudly, chin up/shoulders back, walking with one foot almost in front of the other, to undulate your hips provocatively.

How to tie an Eldredge Knot in your neck tie

HOW do you tie an Eldredge knot in your tie? The knot is the work of Jeffrey Eldrege. The creator of the Eldredge explains:

Tying a four-in-hand every day got old. So I looked up how to tie other knots when I happened across this video tutorial for the ‘Ediety Knot‘ which introduced me to the concept of tying a knot using the tail end of the tie. I didn’t do anything special to actually develop the knot save play around with a tie until I found something I liked…In real time it took maybe two years to perfect.

Moustache transplants give men ‘the air of a tiger’

“HAVING a moustache was always a big thing, ever since the Ottoman time. Most Arab leaders have moostache, or some form of facial hair. I think culturally it suggests masculinity, wisdom and experience.”So says one Saudi Arabia-based journalist about the fashion for moustache transplants.

Dr Selhattin Tulunay runs a moustache-replacement service in Istanbul. He performs 50 to 60 mouschache transplants a month.

“For some men who look young and junior, they think (a moustache) is a must to look senior… more professional and wise. They think it is prestigious. They have some celebrities as role models, like Turkish singer and actor Ibrahim Tatlises. Politicians think a moustanche will boost their appeal to voters.”

John Galliano dresses like a schlocky Nazi

ONE day John Galliano will make Hassidic Jews on-trend. The convicted anti-semite who declared his love for all things Hitler (it’s zer shorts – to die fur) was spotted heading to Oscar de la Renta’s show at New York Fashion Week yesterday. 

The New York Post was disgusted. “SHMUCK,” it screamed. How very dare he mock Hasidic Jews. Galliano was dressed in a long dark coat and a grey homburg hat. His hair was twirled.

Young Hassidic Jews sigh with joy. “Finally, already,” they say in one voice. “Finally, the satin and velvet coat, the furry hat and tucking the trousers into the long black socks is fashionable. After 150 years, finally this look is hip again.

Anti-drone Stealth Wear: the anti-conformist hoodie

ADAM Harvey has designed anti-drone Stealth Wear. Hoodies are useless, says Harvey:

Conformity is what surveillance wants and fashion is anti-conformist. And I think the decision to conform or not happens on a personal level. The projects I’ve been working on act upon surveillance in a way that exploits a vulnerability and makes this vulnerability accessible through using something ordinary (hair, makeup, or fashion) in a non-conformist and legal way.

Kate Middleton’s face turns to leather

KATE Middleton Pregnancy Watch: The Duchess of Cambridge is a bag lady:

National Ledger: “Kate Middleton is pregnant and many are celebrating including those in the fashion world.”

To celebrate the Duchess of Cambridge’s pregnancy, Gucci has made an exclusive bag for Duchess Catherine.

The Italian fashion house has created the Catherine Bag for the 30-year-old royal, following the announcement she is expecting her first child with husband Prince William .

Guccio Gucci, grandson of Gucci founder Guccio Gucci, says the bag is completely handmade and hand-sewn, and “was inspired by Kate’s delicate features and immense charm”.

They made a leather bag because it looked like Kate’s face. So leathery is Kate what when she opens her mouth you don’t know whether to listen or toss your keys in…

Men’s underwear sales slacken with age

MEN. Do you buy underwear? Do you think the undies in your drawers never get old. Are you married to good woman or the son of a fine parent who just replaces you revolting old guntees with fresher ones? Business Insider’s Sam Ro looks at the data:

HS Dent, an economic forecasting firm, compiled Census data on spending behavior and presented them as a series of demand curves. The curves measure average annual expenditure for a given product over the age of the consumer.

The loungewear curve includes Hugh Hefner’s housecoats. Although what’s under it may be prone to sagging.

Yoko Ono’s hand job fashions for Opening Ceremony (full range in photos)

YOKO Ono has designed range of clothing for Opening Ceremony. The outfits are based on Yoko’s drawings from 1969. She had intended John Lennon to wear them – to “celebrate John’s hot bod”. She gave Lennon the sketches as a wedding gift. The clothes scream one thing: John asking Yoko, “Did you get a gift receipt, love?

The mesh cut out shits cost $145.00. The kneeless Conservative Pants are yours for £255. And the Hand Trousers are $335.00. For that money you can go to a tailor in Thailand and get an actual hand stuck to your cotton crotch. The hand will even do the ironing and tell you how great you look…
