Double Tuesday - Our Top 5 Hotties of 2013!

GB and FT were on an outing at Boston Common and happened upon these 2 stunning gents outside a T station. Hottie on the left has the collar upturned on his stunning gray pea coat and jeans cuffs rolled up, making a fashion statement while strolling past the T. Meanwhile hottie on the right goes for a more relaxed black jacket to protect him from the rain and keeps his jean cuffs rolled down. And both have delightful facial scruff!

Shades of Green

We've decided to call the color of our hottie's jacket "Deep Olive". It's a lustrous color for a jacket, and the jacket is also quite a nice fit on our slender hottie. And those eyebrows! Just look how masculine they are and how they accentuate his handsome face!

First Sunday of Christmas

No sooner does our HOTT Crew return to Boston than we get inundated with holiday chores (cooking fabulous meals and fixing computer problems for friends). But it's not so bad as we get to see hotties, such as the one above, prepared for the dark and dreary Sunday that's engulfed our city today. A gray zip up shawl collar on our hottie is the perfect accompaniment to a rain soaked day, and we especially appreciate the way the straps on his daypack lift and separate his manly pecks.

A Single Rose

We love it when we find romance on the T. And this hottie struck our fancy as he carefully protected his valuable single white rose in his right hand. To whom will he be giving this delicate flower? What does it symbolize? What will the recipient think of it as he approaches in his well thought out earth toned beige blazer that illuminates his black pants and black shirt? So many stories start on the T yet we only get a glimpse of one scene of the entire tome.

Of course, GB reminded our HOTT Crew of a famous quote about a rose from First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalog: 'No good in a bed, but fine up against a wall'.

Understated Brilliance

We adore men who show graciousness on the T. Our hottie above is showing graciousness by brilliantly dressing in an understated fashion so that other T passengers will have a chance to shine, such as the passenger in the red coat. A component of hotness is showing consideration to others and not detracting from their special moments. And while being gracious our hottie still looks fabulous with his soft charcoal wool coat, delightfully patterned shirt and well groomed appearance.

Meanwhile our HOTT Crew is departing the UK after a whirlwind champagne and oysters fueled trip and heading nonstop to New York aboard Delta Airlines, which from the pic below is happy to see us aboard.

And upon landing in New York we'll be greeted by our HOTT Crew friends Biscuit and Beemer where we'll be whisked into Manhattan to see a performance of "Well Strung" at Feinstein's. Should be a delightful weekend in Manhattan!

Boxing Day Delight

So simple. So elegant. So alluring. Our hottie has places to go this holiday season and is perfectly packed and ready to go. What's especially delightful is the burgundy color of our hottie's suitcase and how it acts as a highlight to his classically black pea coat and matching toboggan. 

Meanwhile our HOTT Crew and our adoring friends are finishing up our ever so brief but action packed excursion to England. As we popped up from the Tube (Bond Station on the Central Line, of course) we just happened to run into our hero and heartthrob Tom Daley and his boyfriend Dustin Lance Black!

Then off we went in our ZipCars to County Norfolk so we could watch the entire Royal Family stroll to St. Mary Magdalen Church in Sandringham. Our primary purpose for going was to catch a glimpse of Prince Harry with facial hair... and we succeeded! We wholeheartedly approve of Harry's scruff!

Happy Boxing Day from the HOTT Crew!

Sharing a Bond With You This Christmas

Our entire HOTT Crew had a fabulous Christmas Eve Day in London with our friends Dodie & Mave, TJ & Max, and Jay and Jayne and spent the entire time going from one fabulous champagne bar to the next. From the champagne bar at St Pancras (world's largest!), to the Harrods Champagne and Oyster Bar (Veuve goes so well with oysters!) to Quaglino's Champagne and Oyster Bar (the Pol Roger Cuvée Winston Churchill was sublime!) it was one delicious treat after another.

And did we ever find a hottie on the Tube! He looked just like James Bond!
We first saw him in the Tube car ahead of us. Glancing at us with those steely blue eyes!

Then he made his way towards us... we could almost feel his breath he was so close!

And closer still! What a Christmas present!

That look! The chiseled features! The bluetooth earpiece! Be still our hearts!!!!!

Happy Christmas from our entire HOTT Crew!

And don't forget to watch Her Majesty the Queen address the Empire this morning at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time (3:00 p.m. London Time)!

Double Tuesday - Poetry in Motion

'Twas the night before Christmas...

And all through the T...

Not a hottie was stirring...

Because they know we like our martinis shaken!

Happy Christmas from the HOTT Crew!

Jack Daniels

And yet another in our "Jack" series of hottie posts! Thoughtfully wearing a pale robin-egg blue Oxford buttoned-down shirt with Khaki pants and black all-weather jacket, our hottie catches up on some reading on his iPad mini (tastefully encased in a business-appropriate cover) while holding onto the files from work that he will soon be tackling upon arrival at his place of employment. We especially enjoy the studious nature our hottie exhibits whilst commuting to work. For the rest of the "Jack" series postings please click on the title of the posts below!

And our HOTT Crew is off to London for Christmas! We're aboard British Airways Flight 238 (we only travel to London on the daytime flight... so much more civilized) and encountering a slight delay, which suits us fine as we have time to update the blog! Tomorrow we spend seeing the sights in London, and then early on Christmas morning we'll hop in a ZipCar near our hotel in Kensington and drive to "our country home" in Norfolk to spend Christmas with some special friends (yes, Dodie & Mave will be joining us). And you can count on us to get some pics of stunning hotties on the Tube tomorrow... maybe we can share them with you on our Christmas blog post!

Sumptuous Sunday

We enjoy seeing the plethora of handsome men out making the Christmas shopping excursions. Bedecked in a tasteful hoodie layered underneath an all-weather jacket (protects from all that melting snow pouring off of roofs and eaves) our hottie is in the final stages of preparation for Christmas... and looking quite good while doing it!

What a wake me up on our commute to work! This hottie has hair the color of gold gilt. And what a master he is at at combining brilliant colors with rich and unusual patterns. The blue in our hottie's phone helps balance the brilliant orange-red of his water bottle. And just look at the pattern on his winter coat! Our hottie is a man on a mission! Wouldn't he be fabulous in a remake of the James Bond classic film Goldfinger!

Fabulous Friday - Bookish

Our hottie today is simply adorable! Soft natural earth tone colors in his pants and scarf, and a black fleece jacket that contrasts so well with the earthy red of his hardcover book (the black binding on the book is an extra special touch!). And the chiseled good looks and facial hair just make us swoon!

And as we approach Christmas we want to give a special salute to two very creative and clever blogs. Click on the title below to visit the blog:

Moody Blues

Sometimes we catch a mood on our train. Often it's due to the weather up above. And one can't help but feel a little put out at having to slog across slushy street and navigate precariously icy sidewalks. It can put one into a contemplative mood, to say the least. But if one is going to be contemplative one should hope to be as handsome as our hottie full of thought above! He gives one the impression of a young Jonny Ive (swooooon!).

Color and Texture

Today's hottie is a study of the extraordinary result of contrasting not just colors, but also textures. Here our stunning porcelain-skinned hottie is wearing a black jacket of supple shiny leather that features a soft and creamy lambs wool collar. And with the equally textured scarf snuggly wrapped inside the collar our hottie is most definitely warm and comfortable on his ride to work.

Double Tuesday - It's 2(x)ist Day!

It's 7F at HOTT Headquarters and our HOTT Crew is getting out our ever so sexy 2(x)ist long underwear so that we can brave, no revel, in the arctic temperatures in high fashion and comfort! FT and GB are wearing matching ultra sultry red long underwear from the "Tartan" line while FTH has selected dark gray from the "Essentials" collection. Meanwhile, Nippy is donning form flattering white and Undercover RM has chosen muscle defining navy, both from the "Tartan" collection. We not only feel warm, we look hot!
Meanwhile our two hotties above are doing their best to keep warm whilst showing off a touch of fashionable color. Hottie on the left displays a hint of dusky rose in his shirt while hottie on the right highlights his dark jacket and dark jeans with a dazzling blue shirt. Excellent choices, hotties!

3rd Sunday of Advent - Thinking Pink

If you're about to don a stunning radiant orchid color bow tie with clever snowflake patterns to wear to church this morning STOP EVERYTHING! Today is Gaudete Sunday, and despite the fact that radiant orchid/violet/purple is the color of this Advent season, today, as our hottie above shows us, we wear pink! A glorious pink that pairs so well with the dusky sandy colors of khaki pants. A subtle pink that softens the deep and rich tones of of a forest green. A brilliantly light pink that accentuates one's skin tones. A pink that illuminates the dark and gray of our winter world. To paraphrase one who knows about the season of Advent and the importance of our outward signs of color selection on this particular Sunday:

Pink is the color of looking forward despite not knowing exactly what's ahead. Pink is the color you saw this morning if you happened to be up and looking east from a beach in Ft. Lauderdale at about 7:00am. Pink is the assurance that darkness is temporary and illusory and that God's light is our eternal home. 

We hope to see you all wearing pink!

Placid Blue = Winter Storm Warning

Yet another hottie wearing one of the top 10 colors for men for 2014. This handsome gent is bundled up in a placid blue down jacket that will certainly keep him warm and cozy for the upcoming storm and foot of snow (30 centimeters for our readers international readers). Placid blue is a color that pair so well with other soft pastel colors, and also goes well with black... as well as with our handsome man in the jacket. Smart choice in colors, hottie on the T!

And Nippy's husband wants to remind everyone in Boston to make sure to stock up on bread and milk today. There's a blizzard on the way!

Meanwhile Nippy is celebrating his birthday today by participating in the Santa Speedo Run. Nippy Nippy!

Fabulous Friday - Peanut is the New Camel

Yes, we're fascinated with color. And we've always been a fan of Camel-color coats. But this hottie on our way to work has us rethinking if "Camel" should be renamed to "Peanut". This moment of inspiration comes from the MGH Clinical Research advertisement in the background. Whatever color one calls it, it's absolutely divine on our stunning gentleman above! And we really appreciate his thoughtfulness in accenting his wool peanut-color coat with a luxurious green tartan scarf. What a luscious color combination!

Mustard is the New Orange

We're having trouble keeping up with the profusion of new colors bursting forth on the T! Here we have a delightfully cuddly and warm gent in what we call a "Michelin Man Coat" in the fabulous color of mustard! How daring! How unique! How self assured our hottie is by keeping warm and making a fabulous fashion statement! Mustard has heat, and we all need a little heat right now.

Soft wool pea coat in lustrous earth tone gray, highlighted with more than a dash of brilliant reds and navy blues in the ever so sensual scarf. Top it off with black urban boots, a camouflage day pack and some Ray Bans and you're set to conquer the town in style!

Fifty Shades of Monday

You can't help but admire a man who reads the erotic romance novel Fifty Shades of Grey on the subway. Bundled up in his handsome pea coat, our hottie seems to be in rapt attention to the explicit scenes unfolding before him in his book. And to think our HOTT Crew thought fun on the T on a Monday involved getting all 3 stars on an Angry Birds game.

Second Sunday of Advent - Dazzling Blue

We're incredibly excited about the profusion of color bursting forth on the T! Here we have a dapper gentleman bedecked in the hottest of men's colors for 2014... Dazzling Blue! Just look at that tie! See how it illuminates his visage. And notice how he deftly accentuates his good looks and fine taste in style with with his brilliant white noise-cancelling headphones. And we find his shirt cuffs, which are just the right length under his sport coat sleeve, incredibly alluring.

But wait... there's more!
Opposite our fine fellow was this stunning man wearing the absolute top color for 2014... Radiant Orchid! Just look at those shades of orchid and how well they pair with our hottie's gray suit. Not only is it a fabulous color combination, but our gent is wearing the PERFECT color for the season of Advent! Oh how we'd love to see him wearing this delightful color choice in church this morning! Our apologies for not getting his face in the pic.

And a heads up... we have a most spectacular color-filled Double Tuesday in store for you!

It's a gorgeous selection for his fair skin and blondish-red hair, and a perfect pick-me-up for Winter! We just wish he'd picked us up and taken us with him!

What a better way to celebrate the end of the week than traveling home with an angelic hottie such as today's fine gentleman? Casual, confident, hopeful. Our angel of a man looks forward to a promising weekend!

And we apologize for a late posting. We've been in the throws of getting a visa to visit India next week and, well, all we can say is, if you have a desire to visit India please change your mind.

Orange is the New Black

Could it be true? Could the days of the black North Face jackets be over? Could Boston be poised for a new era of color-embracing men? We present our hottie for the day as evidence that a new dawn is rising over our fair city. One very special person. A feeling deep in his soul. Once was half, now he's whole. No more hunger and thirst... oh wait, we should stop before we start belting out Broadway show tunes. Suffice it to say our HOTT Crew is delighted with this stunning gentleman and his excellent choice of attire.

Double Tuesday - Getting to Know You

Our two business gentlemen seem to be engaged in getting to know all about each other. And they certainly seem to have gotten to like each other. Alone on the train they are engrossed in exchanging details with each other.

Getting to know you,
Getting to know all about you.
Getting to like you,
Getting to hope you like me.

Getting to know you,
Putting it my way, but nicely.
Your are precisely my cup of tea!

Simplicity of the Season

It is a busy time of the year. And we appreciate those special quiet moments of reflection. Such as when we get to sit across a handsome and contemplative gents such as the one we feature today. Soothing earth tones and minimally styled hair cut nonetheless give a picture of being put together while not being overwhelmed by the demands of the season.

And many of you know we have an extraordinary fascination with British Olympic Diving Medal Winner Tom Daley. We find him to be adorable, and are mesmerized by his ever so handsome British accent. And in a just released video Tom Daley announces he's dating... a man! Way to go, Tom!

First Sunday of Advent - Text More, Live More

Thanksgiving is hands down one of our favorite holidays. We love its simplicity. The structure of the holiday requires no more than gathering, giving thanks, and breaking bread. And Thanksgiving can be a welcome respite from the hype and drama of Black Friday sales, pre-Black Friday Sales, and a weekend of feverish shopping.

And our hottie today is fresh from a community gathering of friends and family and and is embarking on his way home. And as we all have the luxury of being able to text while traveling about our city on the T he's taking a brief moment to connect with yet another friend or family member. And from his intentional look, and incredibly well attired manner, we assume he's using the text to make sure he  can arrange to be in person with yet more people close to him.

Now, our HOTT Crew are fond of cycling as you know, and we re-iterate that driving a vehicle while texting is a recipe for disaster. Hence the phrase "Text Less, Live More". But as we all travel about on the T we think it's quite in keeping with the season to use a few moments waiting for a train to "reach out and touch someone". And invite them to a gathering where everyone can give thanks and break bread together.

By Design

We encountered this bespectacled hottie as he was toting what appears to be architectural drawings in a case that goes so well with his outfit and also his tall trim frame. We imagine after he gets home he'll then be heading out to do some holiday shopping. And from the style of eyewear and the cut of his hair we can only imagine that his architectural renderings are of the most exclusive and cutting edge design.

Happy Thanksgiving!

One of the pleasures of the rush to Thanksgiving is the plethora of handsome men waiting for their trains! Here we have two striking gents awaiting for their commuter rail train to be ready for boarding.

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 nations stops, we just together just as a band of haggard Pilgrims in a new land once did... to offer their thanks to God.

Double Tuesday - High Visibility Fashion

Fashion and style come in different flavors of high visibility. And our two hotties today show the breadth of display in this fashion sense. Hottie on the left is perfectly attired for a blustery snow-flurry day and can easily been seen in his fashionable high-visibility yellow jacket with black sleeves. Blue jeans and running shoes show his on-the-go outside, perhaps with errands, and is adorably entranced with his iPhone. Hottie on the right is equally entranced with his iPhone and also casually attired, but in a very different take on being prepared for the weather. His charcoal pea coat and deftly arranged geometrically patterned scarf work so well with his jeans and stylish shoes. Prepared he is for the outdoors, but especially prepared for making a statement upon walking inside from the cold. Aren't our double hotties cute!
