Gay Divorce NYC WorldPride2019 T-shirt
GUTS NYC
$30 – $35

I make the kind of T-shirts that I’d like to find in future thrift shops; a new companion with its own story from a former life.

I knew I’d have to cook something up to celebrate the monumental NYC WorldPride 2019. What I didn’t want to do was make something that felt pandering or kitschy, perhaps the more lucrative route—A route I foolishly evade at every opportunity.

Gay marriage, gay marriage, gay marriage.The perfect gay-marriage of two words. We fought so hard and long for marriage equality. Now that we have it and all the conservatives can plainly see that the world is not being swallowed up in God’s wrath, we can sit back to enjoy the spoils of unholy matrimony.

As someone who is neither religious, traditional, or straight, I have very little personal interest in its significance as an institution outside of legality. I do, however, wholeheartedly support and celebrate anyone’s right to their pursuit of it for their own happiness.

Divorce isn’t something I’d wish upon someone as a prologue. But along with the right to marry comes the risk of its chaotic twin. And with this shirt I give you not the symbol of a jaded queen, but of a wise queen who wishes only to remind you that marriage equality was not the promise of something infallible, but the agency to decide for oneself if and how they would like to pursue their own fates. Nothing is promised in this life, but the freedom to follow your heart is a sweet and under-appreciated thing.

We have fought for our marriages, but also for the freedom to be divorced from heteronormativity, religion, and tradition. We can be proud of this as an effort that took mobilization and heart.

My wedding ceremony will be on Halloween with a spread of colorful psychedelics, howling family and friends dressed as their favorite monsters, and a prenup etched in loose dirt. Happy WorldPride!

Oversize “The Face” T-shirt
GUCCI
$550.00

As someone who is, above other forms, a print designer, I’m beginning to miss the tactile world. The smell and weight of paper. And before the “world wide web,” magazines were an instrumental way to dip into the ephemeral currents of how culture was evolving.

One of my favorite publications was The Face, a British music, fashion and culture monthly magazine published from 1980 to 2004. I trusted its journalism and respected it’s taste.

Working at Tower Records, I would look for shipments carrying the import rag with that red box logo designed by Steve Bush. The Face‘s aesthetic has intimately informed me throughout my career. It was legible and clean, but there was also something indisputably punk and nonchalant.

They played a major role in showcasing then obscure talents like Corinne DayStephane SednaouiNigel ShafranDavid SimsInez and VinoodhNorbert Schoerner, and Juergen Teller, and stylists like Melanie Ward.

With The Face‘s plans to relaunch a print magazine, Gucci has taken the recognizable logo and put it on a t-shirt and hoodie. In retrospect it looks so much like the new Helmut Lang logo rework and the Barbara Kruger inspired (cough, cough) Supreme logo, I think is a testament to the publication’s prescient eye in fashion and culture.

Now as a neophyte entrepreneur of a startup which has yet to become self-sustaining, I can hardly afford to pay $550 for a washed white cotton crewneck (even with the “FYI this is luxury” Gucci flower label on the back). So the only thing I can suggest is hope it goes 75% off ($137.50) come sale season while you thumb through those dog-eared pages of a beloved cultural dispatcher.

Us (dir. Jordan Peele)
[Digital / Blu-ray/ DVD]
$22.99

If you’re into cinema then you’ve probably heard everything there is to say about Us—Which is a lot. From funny, confusing, frustrating, stunning, to gaining masterpiece status with a 94% fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes.

This is coming after the pitch perfect release of Jordan Peele’s freshman debut Get Out, which underscored that not only are black narratives potentially lucrative, they are a genre that is implicitly rich with unmined possibility and content.

I won’t say much about the narrative except that Peele is challenging us. I wouldn’t expect many people to decode and feel satisfied in one watch. He has created a beautiful puzzle full of allusions, semiotics, and idiosyncratic connections that will thrill you with your friends trying to make sense of it all. Peele is a teacher. Through intrigue, he will give you enough clues to go home and do some research. A bit of homework, if you will.

Some people get tiresome the more you know about them as superficiality runs its short life. Usis like the other person that gets even more interesting the more you learn if you’re a nosy kinda person willing to give yourself to intrigue.

Long Molded-Latex Gloves
in natural and smoke
$51.00

I imagine wearing these long molded latex gloves feels like what Temple Grandin’s cows must feel like in her double rail conveyor restrainer systems before slaughter. Peaceful and contained.

There is also something clinically sensual about latex while still retaining a sort of deviance. Sanitary in the operation room, but slick enough to make a sphincter go boom.

These translucent gloves are 61 centimeters of high quality sheet latex by Radical Rubber (UK) with a thickness 0,4 mm.

Though sold as an accessory, I think of the scene in Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Dreamers when Eva Green wore a pair of long black evening gloves to mimic the famous Venus de Milo statue (NSFW). It was the absence of the arm flesh that created the look. So while you might complicate it with some fetish ensemble, there is something subtly thrilling when you shellack the arms that rock the cradle in these smoke or natural tinted meat casings.

Art & Queer Culture
by Catherine Lord and Richard Meyer
$39.95

Storytelling has been used to pass down troves of knowledge and culture throughout man’s long history. In fact, it shapes the very arc of it. So what happens to our stories when we as queer people who have historically not had the posterity to pass it down to, let alone the agency to speak of it? Art & Queer Culture, a retrospective of 304 pages serves us well in examining the importance of the queer auteur.

Queer people have fortunately had no want for the ability to express themselves in new and evocative ways. Here, we get some context and illumination from the works of Francis Bacon, Robert Mapplethorpe (currently exhibited at the Guggenheim), Catherine Opie, and Andy Warhol.

Spanning over 200 works over 130 years of queer art, this 9 1/8″ x 6 3/4″ surveys our vivid and fraught history. A memoriam to the ones who showed us so generously the colors and identities that preceded the ground on which we proudly stand.

Oakley Razor Blades Heritage™ Collection
$98.50

Somewhere, a hip father is cursing Marie Kondo for encouraging him to dispose of his original pair of Oakley Razor Blades™, which along with their Eyeshades™, and Frogskins® (perhaps more fashionable during the wayfarer renaissance of 2007) are now being re-released as they celebrate 30 years of producing performance eyewear

With luxury brands from Vetements, Balenciaga, and Kenzo all producing their interpretation of the utilitarian “protective glasses” form, it’s only right that the original Don Dada of the design skim a bit of froth off the proverbial latté.

The Heritage Collection Blades come in multiple lens/frame color combos, along with straight and “trigger” shaped ear stems, a pin, sticker, guitar pick, and Microclear bag.

So go on and be that shady lady with lenses that protect your eyes from UVA, UVB, and UVC rays. Some may call it a comeback but they’re practically new if you weren’t in existence for the first go round.

YOUR PICTURE/OUR FUTURE
PUBLICATION
$80.00

While straight American men seem to have some allergic reaction to shorts above the knees, gays from the OC to DC prefer their shorts tight and short.

By all means wear whatever moves you, but it’s that weird thing where  gay men fawn over trade but have an utter inability to dress like the men they’d smash.

But I digress—-These shorts is cute, period, point blank. Tip for those on a budget, wait till sale is on but still so hot your nuts are sticking to your things like wet dough).

These Acne Studios ripstop nylon shorts come in 3 colors: Black, pale green, and ginger orange (latter 2 shown above)—Striking yet still easily matched. The ropey cord attached to the elastic waistband in tandem with the lightweight material inspires me to take flight. Let her rip.

Guts RAW chanclas
$18.99

I know people get grossed out when they see any kind of open-toed affair on the streets of NYC. Whether it’s the douchebag piss, or the dog shit, or the chicken wing bones that skeeve you out, I get it, flip flops are not the most sanitary choice of footwear in a city of 8.6 million.

But do not forget that there are many uses for the rubber slipper—Disciplining your petulant child, smacking the shit out of roaches, and no one wants to do their walk of shame from the Pines with sand-filled sneakers.

Support your long suffering alternative queer voice by copping our chancletas. Nothing quite says As Is like our white and blue polyester-lined RAW chanclas with black rubber straps and soles.

YOUR PICTURE/OUR FUTURE
PUBLICATION
$80.00

This collection of 50 photos submitted by unpublished photographers from around the world, aged 18 – 30, initially went through a jury of fashion industry figures (Jonathan Anderson, M/M Paris, Benjamin Bruno, Amanda Harlech, Tim Blanks, Jo-Ann Furniss, Emily King and Jimmy Moffat). Culled from a swirling shoal of 1,813 submissions, this publication accompanied an exhibition of the same name.

This is the kind of project that GUTS has always aspired to do. One day when we have the capital, we’re going to do it, I ever so solemnly swear. With all of the raw talent laying in wait, it can feel like the opportunities to showcase it are flying by. Till then, we will learn and graze the curatorial offerings that precede us, and rest in the knowledge of the surge of talent that NYC receives every day.

I’ve been called out for featuring too many expensive things. This is why I’m not featuring Raf’s $2,705 tank top. These are just a sampling of my wishlist should GUTS every become lucrative enough for me to enable my inherent frivolity.

That said, yes I’m telling you to consider a $355 aluminum keychain. Simons’ work dealing with cans and other modern detritus goes way back and is in line with his ongoing POV as a provocateur and his lonstanding obsession with youth culture.

MONCLER
Tricolor Mare Swim Shorts

Yes it’s summer, sisters. I can already see your tight little booties and frontal junk on that diving board waiting to splash head-first into the waters of Rhys Beach, the Pines, or wherever it is that we homos go to parade in our fruitless mating rituals.

Whatever you do though, I implore you, don’t be that basic bitch in an Andrew Christian, off the rack, pink pineapple-patterned affair thinking they’re reading as racy and relevant when it’s really more like gauche and unaware. Tough love, I know. But it is still love.

We are not capitalists! It’s not about the price but about the signals you’re throwing out. These Moncler shorts are just a lesson in semiotics: Attractive with a color blocking and pattern that says Moncler which one usually associates with winter, it’s like a version of the re-appropriated T-shirt logo but way less lazy. These nylon mid-rise swim shorts with three-pocket styling and tonal drawstring at elasticized waistband, and embroidered terrycloth logo appliqué with partial meshed lining say, I’m here, I’m queer, take notes.

BIGMOUTH
Giant Balloon Animal
Pool Float
$29.99

Know what’s more fun than Jeff Koons’ iconic Balloon Dogs that sold for $58.4 million USD? A $29.99 doppleganger that you can float naked on!

Long before my family began building their pool, and it was just a reflective idea glinting in their minds, they bought floaties. You might swim 100 laps to keep your swimmers build and a respectable stamina but why not actually take 30 minutes to actually enjoy your pool? That is the role a floatie provides——Do a little reading, take a few selfies, consider when Koons once said, “I’ve always enjoyed balloon animals because they’re like us. We’re balloons. You take a breath and you inhale, it’s an optimism. You exhale, and it’s kind of a symbol of death.”

At 5 feet long this floatie has far less presence than Koons’ steel sculptures but at least you will be able to fit it in your pool. Durable, UV fade resistant vinyl, holding up to 200 lbs, which’s like two twinks if you wanna push it, or one otter if you wanna play it safe. Easy to inflate, deflate, and store with included repair patch, you’ll be squandering the summer light as a blissful pop art vision.

WILLIENORRISWORKSHOP
#PromoteHomosexuality T
$35.00

I have always preferred old t-shirts. After years of wear, they seem to take a life and shape of their own as they soften to drape your body the way a stream will brush around a bend. I think that was a large part of American Apparel’s early success when they created shirts that felt inhabited and worn. Brooklyn–based artist Willie Norris has taken it a step further by imprinting his bold statements over actual vintage items, creating new meaning when phrases like “Fuck me Hard or Love Me Tender” are bombed right next to commercial archetypes like the Nike swoosh and their slogans.

Always provocative in meaning but delivered a la the most palatable of fonts (think HBA or Off-White) it’s the perfect getaway car for the old Warholian switch-a-roo.

#PromoteHomosexuality is also the name of Norris’ Kickstarter campaign in an effort to raise a very achievable $7,500 that will fund his runway debut at La Mama Galleria, scheduled for June 13. This is a great deal as the reward for a $35 contribution as well as a great way to help a queer talent gain visibility while aiding the noble cause to #PromoteHomosexuality!

DOUBLE SCORPIO
Pocket Jock

$27.00

Have you ever gone to a sex party with a bottle of poppers and nowhere to put it, leading you to shove it up your butt like some common drug smuggler? Amateur! Nobody wants to sniff poppers that have been marinating in your anus.

Double Scorpio, the fine purveyor of VHS cleaning solvents (mutter, mutter) has revolutionized the world of the underwear party by creating a jockstrap with a pocket to coddle your bottle.

Sizes range from small to XL and come in 3 colorways: Red with black; black and white (above, zoomed out); black and yellow (above, zoomed in).

While you’re there you should probably get something to fill these babies with. Not that size matters, of course, but quality does. Probably more known for their cleaners, I happened upon them at NYC Inferno where I was sold their Double Scorpio Gold ($34) which is extravagantly shellacked in golden paint, scented with papaya essence, and features not one but three insomners for all you slutty, olfactory-driven chemists out there. Ooh now that’s a demographic I’d like to meet.

No lie, I just cut up some old Cheap Monday jeans and tailored them to fit me like a glove. It took me about 4 hours and a dozen pin pricks to do it, too. Motherfucker. So imagine my sense of agitation when I saw these Japanese denim printed boxer briefs and are putting conservative America into a hetero tizzy.

There are only two sizes, Medium 29.9-33.1″ and Large 33.1-36.2″. At $55 they’re not a total steal but at 95% cotton and 5% polyurethane they’re sure to always fit. Now whether it’s a flattering fit is up to you. How’s that beach bod coming along?

Colin J Radcliffe
Ceramic Lovers

In a time of remakes, adaptations, and covers, you wonder if people are running out of ideas. Colin J Radcliffe satisfies that void with the imaginatively complex, dark, and funny persona behind his series Ceramic Lovers.

I abhor kitsch, which is cheap and sentimental in its shared visual coding. Radcliffe’s work, conversely, feels deeply understood and personal. Like miniature contemporary monsters, some who we have known and loved, Ceramic Lovers is relatable in a new and modern way. Lumpiness and irregularity of shape lends identity and a relationship with a child’s notion of play.

Perhaps a glimpse of vertebrae, or the ruddiness of a ruthlessly spanked posterior, or accents of complimentary colored schlongs may put some off, which would be sad to miss all the inherent idiosyncrasies and intersectionality.

Radcliffe states that his work is autobiographical and is conjured through the lens of a queer and digital POV. Many figures he states are, “a personal memory, an ode to a romantic or sexual partner and our connection to one another (or lack thereof). Infatuation, humor, and playfulness simultaneously spur the making of each piece alongside loneliness, disdain, and lewdity.” His work can be seen at Brickhouse Ceramic Art Center in Long Island City.

Palomo Spain (eBook)
Alejandro Palomo Gómez
$6.99

Well beyond my physical prime, I often reminisce when I was (or thought I was) hot shit. I perceived myself as a seer of future trends, never trendy, but always the trendsetter. Now, while I’m too old to have the energy to shoulder such vanity and delusion, I keep my eyes on today’s youth who are doing and wearing interesting things.

In the last few years I began noticing a sophisticated and well dressed throng of aforementioned beauties pouring out of Spain. Photographers and creatives like Filip Custic and Kito Muñoz seemed to be cross pollinating with Spain’s youth culture as well as Alejandro Palomo Gómez’s menswear label Palomo Spain.

In this 272-paged eBook we glimpse into Gomez’s sumptuous world of flowing curios, gathered ruffles, lace, and feminine cuts, alluding to something classical in its palette but also avant garde, fantastical, and unknown like a Guillermo del Toro dreamscape.

At $6.99 it’s worth a gander if you’re in the mood for a dreamy future where boys, as beautiful as girls, enjoy a life of imaginative wonder. Yes it’s written in Spanish, but relax bitch, with a click of the mouse, Google will have your monolingual ass pouring over the copy.

HELMUT LANG

True this is not vintage Helmut, but a Slava Mogutin collab is a nice consolation after reworking the Lang logo with with South African artist Jan Wandrag.

If you’re not scared to show a little nipple then why not? Old useless things that they are. May as well make them fashion embellishments, I say.

In a 90% polyamide, 10% elastane alabaster organza fabric, people may do a double take to see if it’s not just a huge tattoo from Mogutin’s Stock Boyz series you’ve got on your chest. And you’ll be looking cool in those hot months because nothing is more annoying when you’re wearing something warm than someone who says, “Gosh you must be hot in that.” Yeah, no fucking duh, duh-face.

The Matter of Absence: Portfolio1000 by Florian Hetz
$9.99

The work of Bavarian artist, Florian Hetz has a visual simplicity, an uncanny familiarity like you have both seen his work before while inhabiting a primitive space in the mind, like stories your ancestors tell through DNA.

A queer artist who suffered severe encephalitis and fearing a hereditary loss of sight, Hetz picked up a camera and dedicated his passion to documenting a world of bodies, both remembered and observed.

It isn’t a disservice or a diss to say these 48 pages are so overtly sexual that it overflows into a state of pornography. While explicitly erotic, there’s an affection and attention behind the camera——Suggestive, surprising, concealing, intellectual, as the act of seeing shifts into a tactile exercise of visualization; confining us to a teasing microcosm of planes, gradients, and forgotten desires.

But on the fucking real how yummy is this sweater? It’s like a hypercolor sweatshirt living in its last days, but much, much more luxe. My first instinct is to smell it then to masticate its sleeves. So my psychology is if I wear it, through osmosis, men will enact these desires upon me.

In China’s culture of censorship and the Western fetishization and paradoxical dismissiveness of asian bodies, we find a voice in Hang that challenges us to translate what can be perceived as explicit into something natural. An intersection of playful innocence and something more seductive, masterfully see-sawing between subtlety and confrontation.

Long Molded-Latex Gloves
in natural and smoke
$51.00

I imagine wearing these long molded latex gloves feels like what Temple Grandin’s cows must feel like in her double rail conveyor restrainer systems before slaughter. Peaceful and contained.

There is also something clinically sensual about latex while still retaining a sort of deviance. Sanitary in the operation room, but slick enough to make a sphincter go boom.

These translucent gloves are 61 centimeters of high quality sheet latex by Radical Rubber (UK) with a thickness 0,4 mm.

Though sold as an accessory, I think of the scene in Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Dreamers when Eva Green wore a pair of long black evening gloves to mimic the famous Venus de Milo statue (NSFW). It was the absence of the arm flesh that created the look. So while you might complicate it with some fetish ensemble, there is something subtly thrilling when you shellack the arms that rock the cradle in these smoke or natural tinted meat casings.

Art & Queer Culture
by Catherine Lord and Richard Meyer
$39.95

Storytelling has been used to pass down troves of knowledge and culture throughout man’s long history. In fact, it shapes the very arc of it. So what happens to our stories when we as queer people who have historically not had the posterity to pass it down to, let alone the agency to speak of it? Art & Queer Culture, a retrospective of 304 pages serves us well in examining the importance of the queer auteur.

Queer people have fortunately had no want for the ability to express themselves in new and evocative ways. Here, we get some context and illumination from the works of Francis Bacon, Robert Mapplethorpe (currently exhibited at the Guggenheim), Catherine Opie, and Andy Warhol.

Spanning over 200 works over 130 years of queer art, this 9 1/8″ x 6 3/4″ surveys our vivid and fraught history. A memoriam to the ones who showed us so generously the colors and identities that preceded the ground on which we proudly stand.

AFV Classic T-shirt
$990.00

Lord knows a banging body will do wonders to help you pull this shirt off, and at $990 this piece better come with some real dick sucking lips (or at least draw them to you).

Argentenian designer, Alfín Varón, employs playful techniques and unorthodox fabrics in creating a young, provocative man unafraid of color and texture. He is giving you big dick energy, henny, so you better act like you know.

This particular shirt is made with a “double bounce” micro toole assembled with careful cuts and seams that lends a cyber punk vibe, not to be confused with the more homely steam punk aesthetic.

Guts RAW chanclas
$18.99

I know people get grossed out when they see any kind of open-toed affair on the streets of NYC. Whether it’s the douchebag piss, or the dog shit, or the chicken wing bones that skeeve you out, I get it, flip flops are not the most sanitary choice of footwear in a city of 8.6 million.

But do not forget that there are many uses for the rubber slipper—Disciplining your petulant child, smacking the shit out of roaches, and no one wants to do their walk of shame from the Pines with sand-filled sneakers.

Support your long suffering alternative queer voice by copping our chancletas. Nothing quite says As Is like our white and blue polyester-lined RAW chanclas with black rubber straps and soles.

Oakley Razor Blades Heritage™ Collection
$98.50

Somewhere, a hip father is cursing Marie Kondo for encouraging him to dispose of his original pair of Oakley Razor Blades™, which along with their Eyeshades™, and Frogskins® (perhaps more fashionable during the wayfarer renaissance of 2007) are now being re-released as they celebrate 30 years of producing performance eyewear

With luxury brands from Vetements, Balenciaga, and Kenzo all producing their interpretation of the utilitarian “protective glasses” form, it’s only right that the original Don Dada of the design skim a bit of froth off the proverbial latté.

The Heritage Collection Blades come in multiple lens/frame color combos, along with straight and “trigger” shaped ear stems, a pin, sticker, guitar pick, and Microclear bag.

So go on and be that shady lady with lenses that protect your eyes from UVA, UVB, and UVC rays. Some may call it a comeback but they’re practically new if you weren’t in existence for the first go round.

YOUR PICTURE/OUR FUTURE
PUBLICATION

While straight American men seem to have some allergic reaction to shorts above the knees, gays from the OC to DC prefer their shorts tight and short.

By all means wear whatever moves you, but it’s that weird thing where  gay men fawn over trade but have an utter inability to dress like the men they’d smash.

But I digress—-These shorts is cute, period, point blank. Tip for those on a budget, wait till sale is on but still so hot your nuts are sticking to your things like wet dough).

These Acne Studios ripstop nylon shorts come in 3 colors: Black, pale green, and ginger orange (latter 2 shown above)—Striking yet still easily matched. The ropey cord attached to the elastic waistband in tandem with the lightweight material inspires me to take flight. Let her rip.

That said, yes I’m telling you to consider a $355 aluminum keychain. Simons’ work dealing with cans and other modern detritus goes way back and is in line with his ongoing POV as a provocateur and his lonstanding obsession with youth culture.

YOUR PICTURE/OUR FUTURE
PUBLICATION
$80.00

This collection of 50 photos submitted by unpublished photographers from around the world, aged 18 – 30, initially went through a jury of fashion industry figures (Jonathan Anderson, M/M Paris, Benjamin Bruno, Amanda Harlech, Tim Blanks, Jo-Ann Furniss, Emily King and Jimmy Moffat). Culled from a swirling shoal of 1,813 submissions, this publication accompanied an exhibition of the same name.

This is the kind of project that GUTS has always aspired to do. One day when we have the capital, we’re going to do it, I ever so solemnly swear. With all of the raw talent laying in wait, it can feel like the opportunities to showcase it are flying by. Till then, we will learn and graze the curatorial offerings that precede us, and rest in the knowledge of the surge of talent that NYC receives every day.

BIGMOUTH
Giant Balloon Animal
Pool Float
$29.99

Know what’s more fun than Jeff Koons’ iconic Balloon Dogs that sold for $58.4 million USD? A $29.99 doppleganger that you can float naked on!

Long before my family began building their pool, and it was just a reflective idea glinting in their minds, they bought floaties. You might swim 100 laps to keep your swimmers build and a respectable stamina but why not actually take 30 minutes to actually enjoy your pool? That is the role a floatie provides——Do a little reading, take a few selfies, consider when Koons once said, “I’ve always enjoyed balloon animals because they’re like us. We’re balloons. You take a breath and you inhale, it’s an optimism. You exhale, and it’s kind of a symbol of death.”

At 5 feet long this floatie has far less presence than Koons’ steel sculptures but at least you will be able to fit it in your pool. Durable, UV fade resistant vinyl, holding up to 200 lbs, which’s like two twinks if you wanna push it, or one otter if you wanna play it safe. Easy to inflate, deflate, and store with included repair patch, you’ll be squandering the summer light as a blissful pop art vision.

MONCLER
Tricolor Mare Swim Shorts
$265

Yes it’s summer, sisters. I can already see your tight little booties and frontal junk on that diving board waiting to splash head-first into the waters of Rhys Beach, the Pines, or wherever it is that we homos go to parade in our fruitless mating rituals.

Whatever you do though, I implore you, don’t be that basic bitch in an Andrew Christian, off the rack, pink pineapple-patterned affair thinking they’re reading as racy and relevant when it’s really more like gauche and unaware. Tough love, I know. But it is still love.

We are not capitalists! It’s not about the price but about the signals you’re throwing out. These Moncler shorts are just a lesson in semiotics: Attractive with a color blocking and pattern that says Moncler which one usually associates with winter, it’s like a version of the re-appropriated T-shirt logo but way less lazy. These nylon mid-rise swim shorts with three-pocket styling and tonal drawstring at elasticized waistband, and embroidered terrycloth logo appliqué with partial meshed lining say, I’m here, I’m queer, take notes.

WILLIENORRISWORKSHOP
#PromoteHomosexuality T
$35.00

I have always preferred old t-shirts. After years of wear, they seem to take a life and shape of their own as they soften to drape your body the way a stream will brush around a bend. I think that was a large part of American Apparel’s early success when they created shirts that felt inhabited and worn. Brooklyn–based artist Willie Norris has taken it a step further by imprinting his bold statements over actual vintage items, creating new meaning when phrases like “Fuck me Hard or Love Me Tender” are bombed right next to commercial archetypes like the Nike swoosh and their slogans.

Always provocative in meaning but delivered a la the most palatable of fonts (think HBA or Off-White) it’s the perfect getaway car for the old Warholian switch-a-roo.

#PromoteHomosexuality is also the name of Norris’ Kickstarter campaign in an effort to raise a very achievable $7,500 that will fund his runway debut at La Mama Galleria, scheduled for June 13. This is a great deal as the reward for a $35 contribution as well as a great way to help a queer talent gain visibility while aiding the noble cause to #PromoteHomosexuality!

DOUBLE SCORPIO
Pocket Jock

$27.00

Have you ever gone to a sex party with a bottle of poppers and nowhere to put it, leading you to shove it up your butt like some common drug smuggler? Amateur! Nobody wants to sniff poppers that have been marinating in your anus.

Double Scorpio, the fine purveyor of VHS cleaning solvents (mutter, mutter) has revolutionized the world of the underwear party by creating a jockstrap with a pocket to coddle your bottle.

Sizes range from small to XL and come in 3 colorways: Red with black; black and white (above, zoomed out); black and yellow (above, zoomed in).

While you’re there you should probably get something to fill these babies with. Not that size matters, of course, but quality does. Probably more known for their cleaners, I happened upon them at NYC Inferno where I was sold their Double Scorpio Gold ($34) which is extravagantly shellacked in golden paint, scented with papaya essence, and features not one but three insomners for all you slutty, olfactory-driven chemists out there. Ooh now that’s a demographic I’d like to meet.

No lie, I just cut up some old Cheap Monday jeans and tailored them to fit me like a glove. It took me about 4 hours and a dozen pin pricks to do it, too. Motherfucker. So imagine my sense of agitation when I saw these Japanese denim printed boxer briefs and are putting conservative America into a hetero tizzy.

There are only two sizes, Medium 29.9-33.1″ and Large 33.1-36.2″. At $55 they’re not a total steal but at 95% cotton and 5% polyurethane they’re sure to always fit. Now whether it’s a flattering fit is up to you. How’s that beach bod coming along?

Colin J Radcliffe
Ceramic Lovers

In a time of remakes, adaptations, and covers, you wonder if people are running out of ideas. Colin J Radcliffe satisfies that void with the imaginatively complex, dark, and funny persona behind his series Ceramic Lovers.

I abhor kitsch, which is cheap and sentimental in its shared visual coding. Radcliffe’s work, conversely, feels deeply understood and personal. Like miniature contemporary monsters, some who we have known and loved, Ceramic Lovers is relatable in a new and modern way. Lumpiness and irregularity of shape lends identity and a relationship with a child’s notion of play.

Perhaps a glimpse of vertebrae, or the ruddiness of a ruthlessly spanked posterior, or accents of complimentary colored schlongs may put some off, which would be sad to miss all the inherent idiosyncrasies and intersectionality.

Radcliffe states that his work is autobiographical and is conjured through the lens of a queer and digital POV. Many figures he states are, “a personal memory, an ode to a romantic or sexual partner and our connection to one another (or lack thereof). Infatuation, humor, and playfulness simultaneously spur the making of each piece alongside loneliness, disdain, and lewdity.” His work can be seen at Brickhouse Ceramic Art Center in Long Island City.

Palomo Spain (eBook)
Alejandro Palomo Gómez
$6.99

Well beyond my physical prime, I often reminisce when I was (or thought I was) hot shit. I perceived myself as a seer of future trends, never trendy, but always the trendsetter. Now, while I’m too old to have the energy to shoulder such vanity and delusion, I keep my eyes on today’s youth who are doing and wearing interesting things.

In the last few years I began noticing a sophisticated and well dressed throng of aforementioned beauties pouring out of Spain. Photographers and creatives like Filip Custic and Kito Muñoz seemed to be cross pollinating with Spain’s youth culture as well as Alejandro Palomo Gómez’s menswear label Palomo Spain.

In this 272-paged eBook we glimpse into Gomez’s sumptuous world of flowing curios, gathered ruffles, lace, and feminine cuts, alluding to something classical in its palette but also avant garde, fantastical, and unknown like a Guillermo del Toro dreamscape.

At $6.99 it’s worth a gander if you’re in the mood for a dreamy future where boys, as beautiful as girls, enjoy a life of imaginative wonder. Yes it’s written in Spanish, but relax bitch, with a click of the mouse, Google will have your monolingual ass pouring over the copy.

HELMUT LANG
MASC LITTLE TEE

If you know ANY FUCKING THING about me by now, it should be that I love two things when it comes to fashion: Sheer fabrics and vintage Helmut Lang. True this is not vintage Helmut, but a Slava Mogutin collab is a nice consolation after reworking the Lang logo with with South African artist Jan Wandrag.

If you’re not scared to show a little nipple then why not? Old useless things that they are. May as well make them fashion embellishments, I say.

In a 90% polyamide, 10% elastane alabaster organza fabric, people may do a double take to see if it’s not just a huge tattoo from Mogutin’s Stock Boyz series you’ve got on your chest. And you’ll be looking cool in those hot months because nothing is more annoying when you’re wearing something warm than someone who says, “Gosh you must be hot in that.” Yeah, no fucking duh, duh-face.

I love sheer fabrics, that’s my understatement of the fucking year. As Spring rolls out who isn’t excited to stuff their winter wardrobe away?

The Matter of Absence: Portfolio1000 by Florian Hetz
$9.99

The work of Bavarian artist, Florian Hetz has a visual simplicity, an uncanny familiarity like you have both seen his work before while inhabiting a primitive space in the mind, like stories your ancestors tell through DNA.

A queer artist who suffered severe encephalitis and fearing a hereditary loss of sight, Hetz picked up a camera and dedicated his passion to documenting a world of bodies, both remembered and observed.

It isn’t a disservice or a diss to say these 48 pages are so overtly sexual that it overflows into a state of pornography. While explicitly erotic, there’s an affection and attention behind the camera——Suggestive, surprising, concealing, intellectual, as the act of seeing shifts into a tactile exercise of visualization; confining us to a teasing microcosm of planes, gradients, and forgotten desires.

What can I say? Nothing shoes away the sting of winter like cozy sweaters that remind me of my childhood chewing Sanrio bubble gum, watching VHS tapes of Dragon Ball Z that my Uncle would tape and send from Japan. Didn’t you love that? It’s something we can all relate to.

But on the fucking real how yummy is this sweater? It’s like a hypercolor sweatshirt living in its last days, but much, much more luxe. My first instinct is to smell it then to masticate its sleeves. So my psychology is if I wear it, through osmosis, men will enact these desires upon me.

Gotta say tho I like these Babel Tractor Slides tho. They remind me of Pierre Huyghe. Like they were inspired by both a cellular primordial sludge and recyclable materials from the dystopian future.

An intersection of playful innocence and something more seductive, masterfully see-sawing between subtlety and confrontation.
