Happy Thanksgiving!

Our conductor above exemplifies the very best of the MBTA/MBCR. Personable, extraordinarily helpful, pleasant and kind. Despite the packed trains he succeeded in making the holiday trip a special journey for each passenger. So we take a moment on this special day to give thanks to all the hard working staff of the MBTA and MBCR who make it possible to spend time with family and friends!

Thanksgiving is a special time for everyone on the HOTT Crew. It arrives at a poignant time of year as the trees stand newly shorn of their leaves, the days have shrunk to what seems like a few hours of light between the two darknesses, and the chill in the air hints ominously of what's to come. And as the nation stops, we gather together just as a band of haggard Pilgrims in a new land once did... to offer their thanks to God.

Sonja Henie's Tutu!

What chaos on the T today! What pandemonium! What crowds! So crowded and cheek-to-jowl that our HOTT Crew had difficulty getting pics of the hot men. Yet one of our team pulled through with this stunning gentleman above. A respite of calm and courage in a scene of utter despair and hopelessness.

Yes, you had to experience the Red Line this morning, at both northern and southern sections, to understand the travails the T put into our travels! Trains inoperable and no shuttles on the northern section, while trains were colliding on the southern section. GB and FT simply gave up and took a cab to work.

And the reference to "Sonja Henie's Tutu!" is related to our HOTT Headquarters being located at Car Talk Plaza. Car Talk fans fondly remember the exclamatory cry from Click & Clack, "Sonja Henie's Tutu!".

Double Tuesday - Facial Fur

Well-groomed facial hair can be so alluring on men. And our hotties above show off their grooming skills with aplomb! Hottie on the left goes for a more casual approach, combining the best of tech-style with a wee bit of Lumbersexual flannel in the mix. Hottie on the right has an au courant look with quilted jacket, jeans and street shoes. Both have lovely beards!

Monday is Funday

What to wear on an unsettled day? How about what our hottie above has chosen! Combining the best of casual wear with the best of business attire, our hottie is prepared for whatever winter weather may suddenly descend upon us. And the topcoat and facial hair are glorious!

Speaking of topcoats, we want to thank everyone for acting on our recommendation in our Winter Coat Update last week to buy a topcoat from Burberry. Our Burberry stock has soared 4% in value since that post! Bless you, one and all!

Hints of Orange

How appropriate that our hottie on the Orange Line had hints of orange on his day pack straps. His attire is quite fitting for a cold and casual weekend, and the lack of crowds on the train helped add to the ambience.

We don't capture enough hotties on the Orange Line, and were thrilled that a friend of our HOTT Crew (HikerLegs) got this shot for us. HikerLegs is accustomed to walking the aisles of the friendly skies, so this sitting-down view was a new angle for him!

The Game

We've been at the #HarvardYale game, and so has our hottie! Blustery and cold, it was worth it to see Harvard win 31 - 24 in the 131st meeting of "the game". And our hottie above has his game on for The Game by wearing a piped down jacket with lime green zipper highlights that make him easy to find in a crowded train or stadium.

Fabulous Friday - Good to the Last Touch

What a fabulously sexy jacket! Just look at the textures and patterns and how well they compliment our gorgeous hottie! And our man is reading a book! Swooooon! We so wanted to reach out and touch him!
An lesser known fact about textured gray fabrics is that they pair so well with so many colors. Besides being a magnificent companion to tans and earth tone colors, gray does exceptionally well with brilliant red highlights, such as the zippered pocket on the sleeve of our hottie's jacket (best seen in the top photo).
Last, but not least, as we prepare for the Thanksgiving Holiday we've received news from our friend Mave that she's embarking on an extended retro off-the-grid road trip across "this great country I call home". No cell phone, no text messages, no email. Just a newly restored 1959 Chevrolet Impala (above in front of her home), some postage stamps (for postcards and letters to send to us) and lots of quarters for the occasional phone booth. We wish her well and will scan any photos we receive from Mave as she journeys across this vast continent!
