Where Were You When the Lights Went Out?

What good fortune! We were on on way home from work when we encountered this absolutely scrumptuous and adorable hottie when, poof, the lights went out. Literally. All over Cambridge. We were just inches away. We could feel his breath creating waves in our hair. His heartbeat seemingly pulsed in synch with ours. His chiseled features beckoned us to run the back of our hand over his jawline and full lips. The darkness created an almost irresistible urge to wrap our arms around him so as to steady ourselves in the confusion.

Isn't he stunning!

Basic Black

As we're into the cold weather the color black seems to take over our wardrobes. Some hotties add a flash of color, or more like a splash of color, to brighten their appearance. Other hotties have a subtler approach to standing out in a crowd... by using the texture of fabric to differentiate themselves from the clones. This hottie shows exactly how a slight change in fabric can make a very noticeable improvement over what the mass audience is wearing. Congratulations, perfectly put-together hottie!

As our hottie wires his body with Rockstar energy drink he wires his mind with Wired Magazine. What's compelling about today's hottie is his gray tweed sport coat with subtle hunter green plaid scarf effortlessly propped around his neckline. Notice, too, the neatly crossed legs and suede shoes. Even the bottoms of the shoes are immaculate!

Double Tuesday - Grilled Cheese Sandwich

While waiting for the #1 Bus in Back Bay/Fenway the Roxy Grilled Cheese truck drove by! We love Grilled Cheese Sandwiches... and Roxy's makes the best of them all. And added to the feast were 2 delicious hotties in queue with us for the bus! Hottie on the left has stunning facial features, terribly sultry scruff, and the handsomest iPhone case we've seen so far. Hottie on the right has a textured pullover sweater (we love seeing textured fabric on a man) that fits so well with his jeans.

Coming Home

Our fun-filled holiday weekend on Cape Ann came to a close, but not without getting a Commuter Rail hottie on the trip back to Boston! We like the way this hottie's auburn hair continues with a nice face full of auburn scruff. Mesmerized with his iPhone he had no clue that we were mesmerized with him.

Tall, Dark & Handsome

On these dark and chilly nights it's nice to see a tall, dark & handsome man on the T. Makes the commute home enjoyable. This hottie knows that a camel color coat looks wonderful on him and is quite adept at knowing just the right amount of scruff to make a very intriguing and exotic picture.

Bomber Command

We're aficionados of planes, so it's a natural attraction for us when a man wears a bomber jacket. This hottie shows style by layering his bomber jacket with a lightweight fleece jacket and a striped t-shirt. And the denim cap and denim jeans help finish off the look. 

While Nippy, FTH and RM had to return to Boston yesterday afternoon FT and GB remained in Gloucester for Dodie and Mave's formal dinner. The champagne flowed freely, all the men wore their tuxes (FT even wore tails!) and we had a grand time pretending we were characters from Downton Abbey. If only we had a Thomas to be our personal footman!

Blowing in the Wind

What an elegant Autumnal selection this hottie chose! A handsome cranberry sportcoat is an outstanding choice for this "tween the holidays" period and offers a festive, but not ostentatious, salute to the season.

And our saga of Dodie and Mave's Thanksgiving Extravaganza continues below.

Our HOTT crew awoke early this morning to do some online Black Friday shopping (Nippy got a wireless bike helmet communications system just like FTH and GB have), and then Dodie and Mave took us on a surprise outing with Mayor Carolyn Kirk of Gloucester! And we went to the new Cape Ann Wind Farm (Turbine #1 pictured above) that is being built on a promontory overlooking the city of Gloucester. Mayor Kirk signed her name on a turbine blade that will be part of Turbine #2 (there will be 3 turbines when complete) and then invited our HOTT Crew to add our names to the list!

Afterwards Mayor Kirk joined us for a fabulous luncheon and then took us on a shopping excursion on Gloucester's Main Street. What fun!

And now we're ready for some Vespers!

Happy Thanksgiving!

What a surprise for us as we traveled to work yesterday... a freshly scrubbed and perfectly put together hottie! Stunning blond hair that glistened in the Green Line train's overhead lighting, a violet sweatshirt (will be perfect for Advent season!), and a ski cap positioned just right on his head so that his golden locks show as they drape over his forehead.

The entire HOTT crew are guests today at Dodie and Mave's famous annual Thanksgiving extravaganza on Eastern Point at Cape Ann.  GB and FT have been making Dodie and Mave their favorite cocktails (Vespers and Vodka Tonics), which might explain why the turkey spent several hours in the oven with the oven turned off. FTH, Nippy and RM are on their way this afternoon for the famous cocktail hour on the deck overlooking the ocean. GB is making green bean casserole, FT is making a Treacle Tart, FTH is cooking his famous mashed sweet potatoes. And after cocktail hour and the gargantuan feast we'll retire to the library for heirloom cheeses and Veuve Cliquot!

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 two darknesses, and the chill in the air hints ominously of what’s to come. And as the nation stops, we join together just as a band of haggard Pilgrims in a new land once did, to offer their thanks to God.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Dutch Treat

What perfect timing we had! What delightful framing! Our ever-so-shy Nippy managed to pull off a coup of a well-framed shot of this Dutchman aboard his Green Line train. Notice the nicely squared jawline set off by the squared angles of the handrail. Great picture framing, Nippy!

Double Tuesday - Textured Warmth

We've mentioned the overwhelming number of black North Face jackets, and we'd like to take a moment to point out some very compelling alternatives that are most attractive and also make one stand out in a crowd.

Both of today's hotties are wearing jackets by Patagonia that are made of a polar fleece-like material, but have textured ribs that provide a most comfortable fit. And attractive, too. We like that extra attention to detail (even if it doesn't quite show up on a camera phone, it is very noticeable in person).

The End is Near

The end times are coming. It's time to turn tail. The Mayans predict the end of the world will take place on December 21, 2012 and we're seeing evidence that the end truly is near!

We're not ones to do headless torso pics, but we felt this hottie was an exception as it's kind of a public service announcement... approaching end of the world, you know.

Ah, Winter!

Now that we seem to be regularly into the chilly weather we're enjoying seeing the different styles of winter clothing. Here we have a hottie in a 3/4 length tan overcoat that is the perfect accompaniment to the stressed and thoughtfully worn jeans. A bright red sweater (cleverly paired with a red iPhone case) and back patterned scarf make give this hottie a subtle, yet unmistakeable, pop.

P.S. We'd like to see some of those North Face black jackets replaced with Carhart jackets. Like Anderson Cooper wears. We need some diversity in sartorial choices!

Light at the End of the Tunnel

Ever ridden the T when it was so crowded you felt as if you were in a tunnel? And then, suddenly, a glimpse of a handsome face and you know that the journey has gone from almost unbearable to quite enjoyable. We like the mix of casual black winter jacket with crisp white shirt and royal blue tie. All of which go so well with his fine facial features and blond locks.

Fabulous Friday - Primary Colors

How nice of our hottie today to dress in synch with the wall mural at the T station. His color choices go well with the primary colors of the mural. How Dick Tracy! And we especially like the pairing of the light-weight and well-fitted v-necked sweater (pretty color of blue) with a black t-shirt. Nice outfit for casual friday, and the far-off gaze seems perfect for the approaching weekend.

Fly Guy

It was a dark and stormy flight. Even though GB's plane was cruising at 38,000 feet it was still tossed about to and fro. But the jetBlue flight attendant was there to soothe our nerves. Cater to our needs. Make things better. And being the good boys that we are we followed him off of the plane and onto the T! Our Fly Guy from jetBlue. Handsome in the flight attendant uniform and nicely accessorized with a black North Face jacket (of course!).

Back to Work Monday

Although Monday's are the beginning of a long week they nonetheless offer a great opportunity to see hotties getting back to their regular workday clothes. We do like the black and white theme going on with this hottie's outfit. And the black straps of the day pack and solid black tie really help emphasize the brilliant whiteness of his shirt. And it also accentuates his dark black hair and scruff.

And just what is this hottie beaming about? Is he reading our blog while on the T (wouldn't that be ironic... reading a hottie blog while the hottie bloggers are taking a picture of him reading our hottie blog).  Perhaps he just got a text from a certain someone from whom he had been hoping to hear. Whatever is making him happy, we sure were happy to see his handsomely close cropped hair and thin form fitting sweater layered over a nice shirt.

Phew. We think we're finally getting back on schedule after having been delayed, kept awake, kept occupied, and just kept from our usual daily routine. Is there a better way to illustrate the joy of a weekend day than this hottie? Casually bedecked in running pants and a pullover sweater topped with a geometric patterned jacket this hottie shines with his chiseled good looks and a thought provoking look.

Counting in Florida

Our apologies for the delay in getting a hottie posted, but we had an arduous time getting down to Florida on Thursday so that we could staff the vote counting centers and ensure every vote counts. Winter Storm Athena disrupted our plans and our flight was cancelled. It wasn't until today that we were able to get a flight out.

And look at the hottie we got! Slim-fit tailored suit with open collar. Gorgeous wavy hair. Olive complexion. Sure makes a 24 hour delay worth the wait.

We've got more hotties coming on a regular basis now that we are in place.

4,169,975... remember, every vote counts! At least the Obama votes!

Day of Thanksgiving

Today is a day we give thanks for the sweet victory we experienced on election day. And what a wonderful sight to see on the T on this special morning! There's more than a chill in the air and the handsome slim men in pea coats are back! And just look at that lush wavy hair and boyishly handsome good looks!

And special kudos to Nippy and GB for their astounding campaign efforts in Florida! As many of you know Nippy and GB have been tirelessly volunteering for the Democrats in Orange County, FL. Obama leads in Florida by just 46,000 votes, so how well did Nippy and GB do in Orange County? Well, this traditionally Republican county swung to Obama by a margin of 83,000 votes!!! They even helped a 96 year-old dead Democrat (Earl K. Wood) get elected as Tax Collector! Go Nippy and GB!

And from what we can tell the 4 states voting on marriage equality passed it! Here are 3 of those states below.

And thank you all for voting. You're HOT!

Double Tuesday - Election Day Hotties!

BREAKING NEWS @ 6:54pm! Still more voting hottie pics below!

It's election day and the entire HOTT Crew is voting early this morning! And the HOTT Crew loves to vote because they know their votes count and that their votes make a difference. So join us at the voting precincts this morning!

And what better inspiration to vote than these two ebullient hotties. Full of life, energy and happiness. They know things continue to get better. Hottie on the left has a magnificently well-fitted T-shirt and a maroon sweatshirt confidently slung over his shoulder to ward off the chill (it's 28F this morning!) when he disembarks from the train. Hottie on the right is wearing a handsome collared beige pullover sweater that's such a nice compliment to his khaki-esque pants. They seem so happy together!

Monday - Everything's Cricket

We had plenty of time to get pics of this hottie today as we were terribly delayed due to track work in preparation for the Aerosmith Concert. And what a hottie he was! Expertly turned out in his varsity jacket with a cricket (the game, not the insect) style pattern. He'd look good on any cricket ground in the Commonwealth (British Commonwealth, not Commonwealth of Massachusetts). He was quite occupied with reading his book and texting on an Android phone with a terribly smashed screen. Perhaps the screen was smashed due to an errant bat during a bowling attempt.

Our blog may be focused on Boston but we have a nationwide reach. And we'd like to take this moment to highlight four states (Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington) that are having referendums on marriage equality.

Please support equal marriage by following the recommendations in the graphic above.

Thank you.

Just Jack

For some reason our iPhone reset to the correct time this morning but the alarm is still on Daylight Savings Time. Lucky you... you get an early hottie!

And we're not quite sure why we call this hottie Jack. It just seems to be a name that would fit him. A simple, yet serviceable name. A name that fits his understated, yet fastidious style. Just Jack. Alas, we couldn't quite capture the extraordinarily trim silhouette of his frame. But we did manage to get the dress pants and dress shirt worn in a casual style (convenient for a slightly more formal workplace while being serviceable for going out after work). We think he must work a lot because he was quite sleepy. Fortunately, being sleepy meant we could get a lot of sample pics!

Fabulous Friday - Retro Look

Happy Friday! We were fascinated with this modern expression of a retro British look. And couldn't help but notice a resemblance to Ralph Fiennes. Notice it, too?

The fine cut of the granite colored jacket, the smart underlayering of a lighter hued collared sweater, and the fabulous 50's hat create a sumptuous, yet mysterious, look. Makes you want to know more about this fellow.

Cue the Music

Encountering this hottie gave us the sudden desire to have some Barry White music playing over the PA system of our train. Dim the lights. Serve some cocktails. Wrap your arm around someone special sitting next to you on the train. And enjoy the slow sensual music of Barry. Today's hottie manages to encompass all of that mood. He makes our trip seem like an adventure.
