Are You Man Enough?

The Emporio Armani Spring Collection for 2011 features men's one piece swimwear. I gotta say I like it. I'm glad to see a designer going back to the archives and reinventing men's one piece swimwear. I'm sure the inspiration came from men's swimwear of the 20s & 30s with a bit of 80's racer back turned front ways. But that's just my impression.

And then there are those who choose to use the reinvention of the mankini that BORAT helped to reintroduce. Somehow the top hats in this image help to offset well, the bulges. Dudes, these weren't meant for you! Dress age appropriate! Maybe they were doing a polar bear swim, idk.

We've got one original 1920 wool one piece for men left over at Glamoursurf, sorry guys this is modeled on our female manni as we don't have male one to fit. These go quickly when we get them.

And finally, just for a little levity, we give you this.

This video reminds me of Spring Break anywhere, but I give this dude kudos for, yeah well....

So what say you, are you man enough to sport this ?
