Queer Eye for the Troy Guy? Uh, no.

Actor Brad Pitt says that he thinks fashion conscious men (read "metrosexuals") will wear Greek-style skirts after his new movie, Troy hits theaters next weekend.

At a recent press conference hyping the flick, Pitt was asked about appearing as the nearly naked Achilles.

``I'm naked all the time at home.''

``Men will be wearing skirts by next summer. That's my prediction and proclamation,'' he said with a laugh. ``The film answers to both genders. We were going for realism and Greeks wore skirts all the time then.''

Think about this -- waltzing through Lenox Square Mall here in Atlanta, only to be passed by some metrosexual parading down the mall in his Greek Troy skirt. Ostensibly to be ogled at, not by some winsome lass admiring his legs, but by some guy admiring other stuff.

No, I figure this trend is reserved for the Queer Eye set. (Can you imagine a 350 pound denizen of far north Georgia making the trip down just to get his Troy skirt?

Just damn. Now I need Draino to get that image outta my mind.

LOL... that's a particularly frightening mental image, thanks very much for subjecting me to it. Off to claw out my eyeballs.

I saw a guy yesterday wearing a skirt. He was an older guy riding a motorcycle with a woman and a beer belly. He wasn't actually riding it but walking around with his helmet. There's no way I can wear one and if by some bizarre circumstance I did I sure wouldn't ride a motorcycle. What happens when you get on the freeway? Does it fly up and cover your face? You could cause accidents that way.

Three observations:
1. Brad Pitt's in the latest Vanity Fair not wearing much, but his charm is gone.
2. Men don't look good in skirts.
3. If The Husband would wear a kilt/skirt/whatever. I'd leave him.

Aw hell naw. NNNNo!! Brad, Mr. Aniston, you need a checkup - from the neck up.

Lemme tell ya, when the lovely Juliette Huddy (sp) of Fox & Friends Weekend showed us Metrosexual cats luuv - those fashion conscious dudes that can do it all around the house EXCEPT "take care" of man - she said NOTHING........about wearin dresses, skirts, or kilts.

NNNNuh-uh. Stictly manly & masculine, but very secure & not afraid to wear a pink dress shirt to woik. (work) Or lay down some oven cleaner, maybe even work the Singer sewin' machine when necessary.

Dang, Brad, show us some luv, dawg!! Ya messin' up a good name. Bad enough some of my sistas endearingly call me a white brotha, now I gotta be girly man just 'cause I know how to iron?

This is a great find, Micheal!

Just last week I blogged up something on the fact that the producers of Troy had to hire a leg double for Pitt because his calves were too scrawny to make him look like Achilles.
