  • Truman Says Shear and Now

    Is Shear Genius losing its, um, lustre? Last night's episode was limp, even lifeless. The first challenge (to cut a model's hair into a sort of reversible style that could go day or night) was over in the first ten minutes, and the rhythm of the thing somehow just felt off.

    Bravo's obnoxious strategy of brand-you-over-the head production is only pardonable when the bits in between the ads (the programming) are good enough that you ignore the rest.

  • Truman Says Rockin' the Cardigan: Anton Yelchin

    OK, we don't watch Huff and we missed Fierce People, so the name Anton Yelchin never meant anything to us until we saw these pics from the premiere of Charlie Bartlett at the Tribeca Film Festival.

    We love the plain grayish oxford shirt and cardigan Yelchin is wearing. Shows uncommon restraint and savoir-faire for an 18 year-old. Then again, he is old-world (born in Leningrad, when it was still Leningrad), and being super cute always helps carry off any outfit.

  • Entertainment Boys Gone Wild

    Brooklyn-based writer David Boyer's first book, Kings and Queens, cast a queer eye on the sometimes great, sometimes awful'but always memorable'experiences of gay men and women at their high school prom. Though not exactly a follow-up, Boyer's second book examines no less a time-honored and typically heterosexual tradition: the bachelor party. spoke to Boyer about his latest oral history, Bachelor Party Confidential: A Real-Life Peek Behind the Closed-Door Tradition, and what his research revealed.

  • Truman Says Bon Mots: Swimwear

    This race between Dick Swett and Bob Smith is hot and tight as a too-small bathing suit on a too-long car ride back from the beach.

    -Dan Rather

    People shop for a bathing suit with more care than they do a husband or wife. The rules are the same. Look for something you'll feel comfortable wearing. Allow for room to grow.

  • Truman Says Links Looks

    Every sport has its attire, and that is right and good. Golf has pretty much the ugliest getups of any game, and unfortunately also wields undue influence on the way men dress. To a lot of guys, a polyester golf shirt with a pattern of, say, a fleet of sailboats says "safe", "self-assured", "confident". To us, the shirt says "watch out for the sand trap as you run for the hills!"

  • Truman Says Long Before Harry Hay...

    Thomas Cannon shocked the establishment with his 1749 paper, "Ancient and Modern Pederasty Investigated and Exemplify'd." From the vantage point of an imaginary (and satirical) post-gay future, Cannon examines same-sex love in all its delightful variations. According to The Guardian, the text is bawdy and ironic, but not (yet) available to the general public.

  • Truman Says Not So Fond of Bottle Blond

    David Beckham has lightened up (his hair), and Us Weekly's reader's don't like it...The Sun is calling him "Marilyn." We think he looks more like late 80s Brigitte Nielsen, and it doesn't become him. Disappointing in a man who so artfully popularized the mohawk, the fauxhawk, and could dress like Joseph of Aramathea and still look studly.

  • Truman Says R.I.P. Jack Valenti

    WWII combat pilot, spokesman for JFK and LBJ, movie industry boss, inveterate schmoozer, and a snazzy dresser who never looked uncomfortable in a tux, Jack Valenti died yesterday, age 85.

  • Truman Says Polyester Blend

    Problem: you want to wear those cute fire engine red underpants by American Apparel underneath a nice pair of summery white trousers, which make you feel debonair (in a Don Johnson kind of way). You are not willing to compromise on this. Red briefs. White slacks. You just don't want the briefs to show through the slacks, resulting in a pinkish discoloring around your genitals.
