Fur is the new black.

I thought black was the new fur, but either way it's hard to go wrong.

and speaking of ways, take a walk on the wild side Mr. Fireman! Nothing says hetro like the macho swagger of a man in a dress. Plus, this opens up the possibilities at least 50% when you go to the thrift store. Take a woman-friend along with you if you feel nervous.

Hi BAS, you remembered, yay! I love my loincloths and the soft cotton t-shirt material works nicely. Here's the original:

Of course, part of the reason I remembered is because I got told "You'd better NOT be planing on wearing a loincloth, or going naked, while there!" by some of my friends. :lol: (I wasn't-- I just wanted to get the reaction from them. But I am planing on sneaking in a kilt and wearing it for the whole event, only in part to see what those friends will say. :D )

Maybe if I lose a bunch of weight I'll change my mind on the loincloth....

Bah, friends should revel in what you wear if they decide for some reason to care at all.

Just don't forget sunscreen....the sun can reflect up off the playa to the under chassis.

I am guessing that he doesn't care to be talked into wearing a dress. :?

Sad too since there is nothing sexier than a man in a kilt/sarong/skirt......except of course a fireman in one! (There are no unattractive firefighters)

Inserting a little "swoon" here for mojojita.

Seemed the right thing to do.



I'm hoping this guy has had 6 years of playa experience under his utility belt to work this all out. (and would be interested to know what it tends to hold up now..... if anything at all)

The thread was bumped by a spammer selling "mens fashion tees" in his sigline. Failed anyway, his BBCode wasn't right. Been removed, so you have this weird bump.
Sheesh people, pay attention.

It wasn't a good day. Besides, it's a stale thread. :)
