Resistance was pretty much futile.

Yeah, I know the origin of tzikeh's original Gay Pants icons (and you should too; it's hilarious and oh so true) -- but there's just something about the shirts, for me. I may have noticed the Gay Pants, growing up (and much more now), but it was the cut of the jackets, the open throats, the creases and wrinkles. Where the sleeves hit bare arms. Guys who take three minutes and five exchanges of lines to mess with their cufflinks. The stupid little overdecorated uniform jackets when the Blake's Seven crew weren't even *in* the military, that clued me in to the fact that the entire gang were gayer than gay tree frogs.

Especially untucked dress shirts with the sleeves rolled up. As above. And within:



. Debauched office clothes are so much hotter than clothes designed to be hot.

News at 11: Gay shirts claim another casualty! What can we do to stop the carnage?

Two words. "Avon" and "Leather". Okay, four words: "Avon", "Leather", "Poet" and "Sleeves". Gay shirts. Oh yes!

And studs. Tarrant and his overpadded velvet Robin of Sherwood jerkins with the (star shaped?) pin-studs...

Avon and that one all-black leather dealie that flap-snapped all the way across the top and down one side...

GAH!

But I refuse to believe those are gay shirts. They must be the shirts of het. So I at least have a slight chance.

Curse you, SFX photographer, for not getting JM in better focus. Fuck your artsy-fartsy lighting issues -- I need good clear pics for manipping!

God, I love you for saying that.

So, so true. There is absolutely nothing hotter than a guy wearing a loosened necktie, an untucked dress shirt and those sleeves rolled up. Somehow, with the sleeves, they make the forearms look so slender, and the wrists almost fragile, and I just want to gnaw and suck on the exposed skin. GUH.

Also, nothing hotter than a girl in a guy's dress-shirt and nothing else. That fucking turns me *on*, yo.

I heart you so much. ::debauches your office wear::

Precisely.

And possibly a fedora. Isn't there a scene in 9 1/2 weeks like that?

::debauches your office wear::

My office wear (only it's the champagne one) debauches you back.

You *are* the evil one. I was gonna do that! Grr.

But yours is so much prettier so I will just sit here and drool. Because yes, dress shirts? Hottest thing ever, when rumpled correctly. Like at the end of the day and they start uncuffing and loosening and I don't want them to take it *off*, just the pants please.

Guh. Must write story about this somehow. . .

Yes! Men. In. Just. Shirts.

Hmm -- what about a variant on strip poker, where the pants have the highest point value, so one might end up losing them first? Leading to a bunch of people sitting around in shirts and possibly underwear...

I'm sorry, what was the question?

Utterly mouthwatering. Also, disabling of speech and common sense. I may need to spend the rest of the day just looking.

And debached so well it's like they've been making out, stopped to pose, and are heading for more gay fun. Like a stolen moment.

And: Guh.

See, Xander just came to pick Spike up dropped Spike off after work, then shyly asked him if he wanted to go back out and have a beer, but it's hot and there's AC in Spike's apartment, and there's a Pinky and the Brain marathon on the Cartoon Network, and there's beer in the fridge... (for Xander guests, not that Spike has been hoping Xander would finally come in, some time; Spike's beer is in the liquor cabinet where non-heathens keep it.)

::faints and melts while frantically trying to catch one last look:: So very pretty. And another Blake's 7 fan? Watched that from the start as a youngster in England. Adored Avon and saw Paul Darrow acting in a local theatre a few years later. Totally different character but right there in front of me...::reminiscent sigh::

It's so weird -- I have never been able to pimp anyone into B7 (who wasn't already a whore for any British SF, period, stick it in front of me, I'll lick it). When I come across another fan accidentally, I always have to blink about 18 times. Not that, er, I counted.

I've met PD at cons, a couple of times -- it's very disconcerting!

That is the hotness. I manipped them the other day without any damn clothes, and this is still hotter. Plus, whether Xander's actually wearing pants in this shot is totally debatable.

If you like, I'll muck with the light thing for you-- the program I run lets you mess with those levels. Artsy lighting is massively annoying. Though it doesn't seem that anyone *cares*... ;)

mpoetess

2003-07-15 05:21 pm (UTC) (Link)

Feel free to play with it!

I'm didn't even really try to change the overall lighting -- I'm not a big fan of Photoshop's lighting options, or at least I;m singularly untalented at doing anything interesting with them. My bitch was more with the original James photo -- the funky yellow lighting and the "I'm going to be artistically blurry" focus or lack thereof, makes his face very orange, and very solidly colored -- whereas Xander was shot in crisp closeup, cool blue tones. Even messing about with contrast, color balance, hue, and saturation still leave them not quite equal.

For some reason I had David Addison, from the early days of Moonlighting, in mind when I said that. Because he *was* one of those cufflink-fussing guys, for all he was so slouchy about everything else.
