A lot of bois have written in noting that fall is around the corner, and they still don’t have the perfect lightweight coat to wear! Below I’ve compiled a list of fall outerwear (parkas in particular. I need another parka like I need a hole in my head.)
Parkas are a stylish mix of a coat and a jacket. Fun and comfortable, they are best worn as everyday casual wear.
Bellfield Padded Parka, $109.69 at ASOS
Lifetime Dublin Jacket, $67.99 at Pacsun
Quilted Jackets and Vests
Lightweight yet cozy, quilted jackets and vests are always a good idea. The detail of the quilting is a great addition to any fall outfit. We still love what the guys at Street Etiquette had to say about the ones at Ralph Lauren:
For a cheaper alternative Men’s Quilted Cord-Trim Barn Jackets, ($59.94) look great in person
Regardless of your athletic ability, varsity jackets are a great look. I’m especially fond of the contrasting colors on the cuffs and collar. Varsity jackets are great for running errands and overall weekend activity.
ASOS Varsity Jacket, $47 (available in gray and blue as well)
Topman Wadded Bomber Jacket, $120*
theblueandthewhite asked: When looking for pants, should I concentrate on the way the hips fit or the way the waist fits? I am generally a 24 in women’s stuff, but I have the big hips/butt situation as well.
Courtney says: Where are you considering your waist? Generally nowadays, most folk don’t fasten their pants around their actual waists, but more around their hips. Or if you’re a sagger, it can go even lower. In vintage clothing however, men’s and women’s pants are both worn higher up, around the hips or on the hips, even creeping up toward the actual waist. Currently styles in women’s pants are also shifting upward, with most brands favoring midrise rather than lowrise. So you should gauge the fit around where you want your pants to sit!
Every brand also structures their styles differently; so trying on a bunch of styles will be beneficial. Men’s dress pants and trousers also are generally cut in such a way that the hips and butt are less structured, as compared jeans. So those could be less tedious to go through to find some that fit fantastically. You’ll also perhaps have luck with Boyfriend fit women’s pants.
I really like Pacsun, American Eagle, and Levi’s. Sometimes H&M can have some fantastic pants too, and if there’s a Topman around, that’s definitely worth checking out. All have lots of variety in their fit styles, so just find something that works for you! See Guy’s Pants and Fit for Qwear recommended jeans brands.
Lots of folks have been asking about the perfect saggy jean. Though Kayla’s body type lends itself more willingly to this look, Pacsun's men's jeans have now been recommended several times by people of varying shapes. Pacsun jeans seems to be a favorite among the queers.
And, I love that backpack. For a non-backstabbing brand with a similar look, try Everlane!

Anonymous asked: Okay I’m a 5’ 3” 110 pound lesbian and I wear a 24 in girls pants, I’m tired of wearing womens jeans all the time, but that’s all that looks good on me. Mens pants never fit me because I’m too small but boys pants are either too baggy or too short. Do you have any suggestions? I’m looking for a nice skinny fit but still a little baggy with skater style
Courtney says: Pacsun and American Eagle both go down to 26 in the waist for their men’s pants; and while a 26 is not a 24, this might leave the right amount of room for sagging in the aforementioned skater style. I personally have found that my 28x30 American Eagle slims fit me the same in the waist as my 30x30 Dillon Skinnies from Pacsun, so Pacsun’s sizing may even go down smaller than they are labelled. Levi’s also get very skinny but their men’s pants only go down to 27 in the waist. However, Levi’s also has lots of variety in their pant styles for boys, which may be able to solve this dilemma for you. (Sonia adds: Ashley also recommends Levi’s boys — she is wearing them in this post. With a 29/30 waist, she says they are a little small on her. So they might be perfect for you.)
Drakes Skinniest Layered Blue Jeans, $49.50 at Pacsun (2 for $69)

Our latest favorite 68-notes-and-counting cutesicle is back with more hot gay male inspired outfits. Heads are turning. Fuck Yeah Queer Pomps is reblogging. Sonia is considering adding a 14th sweater to her closet just to keep up.
I told Jordan in Oregon I had a thing for queers with puppies and she immediately complied with sharing this picture. All her clothes are from Pacsun. Add to the queers with puppy phenomenon: Submit! (p.s. the puppy does not have to be yours.)

It’s still hot where Ashley lives, but she threw on a Beanie to start bringing the fall style. I’d categorize this look as musician grunge, with a touch of prep. She just needs a beat up guitar in her hand and she’ll be golden.
Lots of people have been asking about winter coats, and after much browsing, I’m ready to deliver my top picks. My favorite thing about winter coats is it that they will so easily sculpt your body into the shape you’re looking for; like if you want a more androgynous shape, or wider shoulders. Or in my case, big guns.
