During ENK/IMG's Men's Fashion week at Pier 92 in Manhattan on Monday, I caught Buckler's Fall/Winter 2008 presentation. Designer Andrew Buckler always delivers a fun-filled fashion show with rock n' roll theatrics that capture the spirit of his designs.
DVD: What's better than staring at openly gay British hottie (and former Out cover boy) John Barrowman for an hour? Watching him make out/battle with Buffy's James Marsters.

Miu Miu will discontinue its men's line after it's Spring 2008 collection in order to focus on womenswear. Buy it up while you can, boys! Can you say collectors item? [WWD]

In the gadget world, size does matter, but like a runway model, slimmer is better!
PAGE-TURNER: The House of Cruise has been temporarily rocked by the allegations made in Andrew Morton's tell-all Tom Cruise: An Unauthorized Biography. In his new book, the author who exposed the private lives of Princess Diana and Madonna claims that Scientologists 'planted a meadow of flowers for [Cruise and former wife Nicole Kidman] to run through,' that Kidman 'feared blackmail' by Scientologists from sex tapes made with Cruise, and that the Lions for Lambs star's latest mission was to recruit David Beckham.
Panic at the Disco, four barely legal guys more concerned with making music than impressing anyone with their masculinity, have never seemed very interested in hedging their bets with safe styling or simplified pop songs.
An olive-skinned, dark-haired model slowly peels his shirt off to reveal smooth, perfect pecs, bulging arms, and rock-hard abs. As he lifts the weights, beads of perspiration slowly drip down to his skimpy, sweat-stained shorts. Every pump of his tight muscles is lingered over, but his shorts stay on until it becomes clear: This isn't the usual jerk-and-squirt scene you've come to expect from porn palace RandyBlue.com; it's the website's new fitness forum.'
1922: Charles Atlas
Once a 98-pound. weakling, Atlas starts a mail-order body-building program. First marketed in comics, the regimen focuses on diet, hygiene, and good behavior and emphasizes a toned but not overly muscled physique. Legacy: Hot bodies in comic books
1939: Joe Weider
Weider starts his publishing career with Your Physique magazine. Other titles follow. In 1989 he blasts Mr. Universe Bob Paris for coming out of the closet, effectively blackballing him from future competition wins.
Legacy: Legitimizing homophobia in a very homoerotic sport
Along with the rise of the gym craze that has enraptured the gay community came an unwelcome side effect: Chicken Legs Syndrome, that unflattering body type cultivated by muscle Marys who look like they've been pumping iron while in a wheelchair. To help combat the effects of CLS, we turned to David Barton, who built a fitness empire with one simple demand: look better naked.
Sometimes we struggle to distinguish the actual religious sources from our quasi-religious deities.
Measure your devotion to all things Sinead or Solomon with each of the following lines:
1) 'As an apple tree among the trees of the woods / So is my lover among men / I delight to rest in his shadow / And his fruit is sweet to my mouth.'
2) 'My apple tree my brightness / It's time we were together / For I smell of the earth / And am worn by the weather.'
3) 'I have water for my journey / I have bread and I have wine / No longer will I be hungry / For the bread of life is mine.'
Diesel recently opened its first West Coast flagship store on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, featuring the newly expanded Diesel Denim Gallery, exclusive runway showpieces, and the relaunched Diesel Collection footwear.
Fragrance: I'd never used any fragrance in my life. Last year we created a new fragrance called Fuel for Life, and now I can't leave home without it.
Cocktail: The 'sexiest' is not a cocktail but a glass of champagne: Dom P'rignon Ros' Vintage. My favorite is the '93.
1 A tuxedo is worn after 6 p.m. If you're attending daytime queer nuptials during the day, wear a morning jacket, not a tux.
2 Buttoned collars are a big black-tie no-no. Same goes for pre-tied bow ties. No clip-ons for grown-ups!
3 Invest in sterling silver cuff links, a lint roller, a solid black neck tie in silk or satin (as an alternative to the bow tie), and a black and white scarf for your topcoat.
4 Some say tuxedo shoes are necessary and some say patent leather lace-ups are the way to go. Truth is, both look perfect with a tux.
A classic tuxedo speaks volumes about the wearer, specifically that he's chic and urbane, cleans up nicely, and knows the difference between trends and style. Go classic with a shawl collar, one-button tux with spread collar and unpleated tuxedo shirt, or try a pumped-up look with one of these options.
Modern: Perfect for any red carpet, this modern option features a pocket square, French cuffs with onyx cuff links, a pinpoint collar and a slim solid black neck tie in silk.
