I was going to do a set of men who are big fans of Harry Potter but realized I don’t really have enough photos to sustain it. Instead, branching off that, I decided to do a set of images of men dressed in unusual ways. There are some fellows in costumes, some in uniforms, a few just bedecked with some small element that says, “hey, look, I’m having fun!”
I can’t believe I haven’t done this set before because I have millions of pictures of women in hats. Women have a much wider array of hat styles than men do and I’ve tried to show some of those in this set. I don’t have much more to say except that I hope you’ll enjoy the photos. You might notice there are 13, it’s the baker’s dozen bonus!
On Saturday I went out walking around Boston with some friends. One of the shots I got was a nice looking guy wearing a green tanktop. This morning I thought I’d use it as part of a set of men wearing tank-tops, what with it be so hot out and all. As I went though my photos though I found I didn’t have many shots. What I did find though were lots of women in tank tops, or spagetti straps, halters, etc. As a result, I’ve put together a set of women baring their arms. It seems women are much more likely to bare their arms and shoulders than men. Enjoy!
Today’s set is a silly set. A set that makes no sense. While looking and thinking about the theme this is what struck me. Some are old, some are new (but not too new). Some time I should do a hat census to see how many of each hat style I have. I suspect the baseball cap is number one, followed by the knit, then the flat cap. I’ll need to look into it. For now though, here are men wearing glasses and hats of all sorts.
I was kind of surprised to see I hadn’t already done a set of women in red but it doesn’t seem like I have. It gets tough over time to remember all of the Daily Dozen sets. Pintrist has been really helpful. I can see all of the sets and figure out which ones I either haven’t done or haven’t done in a while. At some point I know I will repeat themes but I’m trying to make sure I don’t reuse the same photos too often. It gets tricky. I do have an evolving system that’s working pretty well. Going back and doing it retroactively is pretty time-consuming though. Such is life.
As I was saying, it was a bit odd that I hadn’t done a set of women in red. There are sets of women with red lipstick, men in red shirts, men with red hair and women with red hair. It’s a good color and I’m glad I’ve finally posted it. Enjoy.
With Men in Black 3 coming out soon I thought I’d do a set of men in a much more conspicuous color: orange. Aside from prison jumpsuits it doesn’t get much play. It’s my favorite color though – along with green. Looking at what men wear it’s mostly dark, neutral and dull. Blacks, browns, white, beige, blue. They’re all fine colors and I wear them all the time; but come on, there’s got to be a little more variety sometimes! Orange was definitely a tough one; out of almost 3,000 images, fewer than 15 featured men wearing it. Any ideas why that would be the case?
It’s Wednesday, which means a set that includes women and men. In some ways it’s the trickiest day of the week since it isn’t always easy to find common denominators (not that it’s that hard either). For some reason green popped into my head today and so I sent with it. I’ve done green eyes in the past but today’s set features men and women wearing green clothing or hats. Finding a dozen was a breeze. Winnowing them down was a bigger challenge.
Here in Boston it would be easy to fall back on photos of people wearing Celtics gear but I didn’t take that route. No, I went through to find people who were wearing green in non-sports related ways. I hope you enjoy the fruits of my efforts.
We got fooled up here in New England. Mid-March and the mercury hit the mid-80s. Summer was in the air, people were heading to the beach and it was as if we’d got from a mild winter straight into the dog days of August. Not so fast though – a week later and the temperature had dropped by 50 degrees. We’re back in to nights of frost. Brrrr.
It’s this variability that leads to taking a layered approach to dressing. Now I think men should always wear a t-shirt if they’re wearing a button-down shirt but today’s photos are of men who have made their layers a little more than that. Their underlayers are either in a contrasting color or being worn beneath an open shirt. These fellows have made their layers part of their look rather than just a functional element of their outfits. They help keep them warm while allowing them to remove layers to keep pace with our whacky weather.
