MB PSA: June is Pedicure Awareness Month

MB PSA: June is Pedicure Awareness Month
Magnificent Bastard is giving back to the community this month with a PSA (Public Service Announcement), declaring June Pedicure Awareness Month. Soon we'll have links to a nail salon in your area, but in the meantime, if you are without pedicure, here are some recommended closed-toe footwear options to cover up that nasty shit, and spare the rest of us. Please.

Don't Diminish Your ASSets

True Religion Brand Jeans 'Luke Heritage Fox' Bootcut Jeans  via Nordstrom, $282.00
True Religion Brand Jeans 'Luke Heritage Fox' Bootcut Jeans via Nordstrom. $282.00.
We're perpetually perplexed by the apparent success of True Religion jeans for men. Where do they get off charging $282 for their denim?

True Religion works great on select women, and men with significant amounts of extra chub, but if you work at staying in shape, why would you ever consider hiding a potentially winning asset behind long, deep pockets with flaps and large shiny buttons?

You wouldn't.

This brand is headed post-peak. Avoid, even if on sale.

Theory Goes Long

Theory Long Sleeve Dress Shirt via Nordstrom, $125.00
Theory Long Sleeve Dress Shirt via Nordstrom. $125.00.
One of our favorite brands is Theory, for its clean lines, good quality, and reasonably good value. But their shirts' sleeves were always a little short for Magnificent Bastards with long arms (and you know what they say about guys with long arms).

They've finally addressed that problem with new, more traditional dress shirt sizing like R 15.5 and L 16.5, and now they fit nicely.
