Tropical Reds

Our hottie looks smashing in tropical reds, and what an appropriate style as our HOTT Crew is in Orlando, FL this weekend celebrating our friend Dodie's birthday weekend. Our friend Lola couldn't make it as she's somewhere off the coast of Iceland in the Miss Trish II as she and her ice-encapsulated car are on their way to France.
Above we fly past downtown Orlando and Dodie's waterfront mansion on Lake Cherokee.
And Dodie surprised us with a new purchase... an art deco apartment building (built in 1935) overlooking her neighboring Lake Lucerne! Dodie treasures her privacy and wanted a place where her many adoring friends could stay. It's an amazing place with incredibly lush tropical gardens. We're looking forward to visiting during winter!

His Name is Hunter

Hotter than hot and studious as an Ivy League student, our very handsome man shows poise, polish and the desire to pursue excellence. We think his name is Hunter, and continue reading below to see why.

Our HOTT Crew grew up in the disparate yet affluential parts of our nation. Places such as Wellesley, Haddonfield, NJ, Atlanta (Buckhead), GA and Bloomfield Hills, MI. Well off, yes even overprivileged was our lifestyle. Yet we grew into the fashionable and au courant men that we are today. So we were stunned to see art imitate life in the newest Back-to-School advertisements by Old Navy. WE are the adorable boy in the ad named Hunter. We lived his life. We feel his pain and yearnings.
All we can say, Hunter, it gets better."

Things That Make BosGuy Go Hmm

We wonder if our hottie is a fan of BosGuy's blog? If so, and if he strolled down Newbury Street as our HOTT Crew did, he might also be thinking to himself, "hmmmm" upon seeing the sign below. It certainly had us wondering who on earth might be working at Tommy Bahama's marketing department. We enjoy reading BosGuy's blog and invite you to click the link to it over there (===>) on the right.

Meanwhile, our gent above looks marvelous in his black V=necked T-shirt which fits his lithe and lean frame so well. 
Our HOTT Crew was most amused as we strolled down Newbury Street to see the sign above. To paraphrase Dr. Seuss, "Oh the places we could go!".

Just Jack and The Preppy Handbook

Our famous Just Jack series continues with this hottie displaying absolute perfection with every element of his attire. We're sure he must be a fixture on the cocktail circuit in the South End or equally at home on waterfront decks in Provincetown overlooking Cape Cod Bay. The look is pure New England Summer.

Double Tuesday - Marx Meets Murray's

Marxism meets the movies and pop culture as our hottie on the left wears a "Viva La Evolucion" T-shirt with an iconic Planet of the Apes character dressed as Che Guevara. Meanwhile his seat mate wears classic New England prep wear with his sockless shoes, Nantucket Red shorts from Murray's and a powder blue Polo shirt.

It's not easy to find 2 men so contrastingly dressed, yet also so appropriately dressed for the Peoples Republic of Cambridge!

Simple Pleasures

It's the simple pleasures we adore, and the men with simple yet handsome tastes in style and demeanor. Such as the hot man above. Shorts. T-shirt. Simplicity. Delightful.

Another of our HOTT Crew's simple pleasures is entertaining friends with delicious and creative food. This past weekend our we entertained at our HOTT Headquarters and thought we'd share a delicious recipe we created (below):
We love Maryland-style crab cakes with fresh crabmeat. Above we display our crab cakes on our heirloom picnic table. We think these are delicious and our recipe is so simple:

Ingredients: 1 cup corn flakes (crushed into crumbly powder), splash of milk, 1 tbsp mayonnaise, 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 1 lb fresh lump crabmeat, 1 tbsp baking powder, 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning (found in seafood section of grocery), 1/4 tsp salt. 1 egg (beaten), olive oil for frying), lemon wedges (for garnish).

Directions: Put corn flake powder in bowl and add a splash of milk to make a loose consistency. Stir in mayonnaise and Worcestershire sauce. Then stir in crabmeat, baking powder Old Bay seasoning, salt and egg until thoroughly combined. Shape into patties, then chill in refrigerator for 40 minutes. Then heat 1/4 inch olive oil in skillet on medium heat and pan-fry until golden on exterior (about 3 minutes each side).

The Iceman Cometh

Steely cool eyes and a Brookline Ice Company T-shirt lead us to imagine our hottie being one sharp and successful salesman. Traveling up and down the Red Line our handsome man possibly keeps up with all of his accounts by offering the finest of ice luges. But can he craft an ice block that encapsulates an entire car the way Cape Pond Ice did with our friend Lola's high performance sports car.
