Not to be confused with TCWCG.

This thread is about actual gayness, not the perceptions of others. It was a inspired by a recent PM (you know who you are) in which I was sent a photo of the gayest garment known to man.

My five or so pairs of bandaid-colored shoes are all pretty gay, as are my dozen or so salmon/pink/peach/lilac/lavender shirts. But for sheer gay goodness, my gayest garment has to be these:



I invite and welcome submissions of their own, and critiques of others' submissions, from SF's resident homos. SoCal, mack, GoSurface, step up.

Mods: If this must be moved to Dumb Threads, I will briefly grieve, but quickly move on. If it violates the ban on bloviating about teh ghey, well, officer, I didn't know, I apologize, and is there any way I can just pay the fine right here and go about my business?

I have a tight pink hoody from yoko devereaux that says "candy darling is dead" or something to that effect. If you can beat that, let me know.

Post it!

(And, no, I can't beat it. Do you wear it?)

^I'll see your Hoody, Haganah, and raise you one Jean-Paul Gaultier supertight cashmere sailor-stripe sweater with bronze buttons going down the side!!! Bought it years on a trip to Paris as a college student, thinking I'd be very fashionable and cool. Getting it back the US and realizing 1) it was hideous and 2) it cost more than my plane ticket, it then sat in my closet until I gave it to my most unreservedly gay-dressing gay friend and he's been in heaven ever since.
I also used to own some Dolce&Gabbana dark chocolate colored leather pants. Those didn't get given to my friend, but they also certainly never got worn, except on one occasion when it was very cold outside. Btw... I refuse to post a pic. I'll try to find one from the runway show it came from, but that's all you're getting, Manton... (haha)

I'm gay, but I really don't think I own anything that gay. On the other hand, I have a of couple black dress shirts (those Ben Sherman kind), which worn untucked, are quite hetero/metro. I have some seersucker shorts that my (gay) friends tell me are gay. I also have a tie or two with ducks/bears/flowers or something cutsie (read: gay) on them.

Those pants are not that gay. They're in-denial-conne-level-gay.

Anyway, aside from my purses, I did buy a gigantic Gucci shawl recently. But I call it a tallit to give it respectable Jewish undertones.

^I agree. As well, I think one requirement of an uber-gay garment is not only that it looks gay, but cost a ludicrous amount of money for no discernible reason (for example, Kiton, Attolini, or Brioni don't count... but Dsquared definitely does). Such as a Gucci shawl, or D&G leather pants, or the abovementioned hoody, or anything Gaultier or Andrew MacKenzie. If those seersucker pants had a VERY tight cut (ala Dior homme), were semi-sheer, and cost $1600, then that would be very gay.

I used to have a Peter Berlin ("That Boy") T-shirt. Sleeveless. It was given to me by a trick. Do I get extra points for that?

I have a peach, fairly tight BR t-shirt that my sister gave to me. The sleeves are also on the shorter side. I haven't worn in a while because I've gained some weight so the tightness would be unattractive but I've been told several times by female friends that I'm "wearing a gay shirt".

As do we all. Summer is the happy season. It's hard to be gay in flannel and tweed. Not impossible, but hard.
