Come Fly With Me

We love the way aviator sunglasses spark the urge to fly. And who better to fly with than this hottie! His shorts are just a wee bit shorter than the current fashion standard, thus affording us a magnificent view of his shapely calves and muscled thighs. The T-shirt... expertly fitted and goes so well with his Ray Ban Aviator sunglasses. And the iPad mini is perfect for in-flight directions and entertainment! Rounding it out is the white wristband, commonly worn to indicate one's awareness of unearned white privilege that still exists in society. Not only handsome and strong, he's sensitive, too!

Got Soccer?

Soccer is a nice sport. Men who play it develop such handsome and muscular legs. Such as this hottie above! And the lime-yellow running shoes give added zing to such a handsome fellow!

Fabulous Friday - Couple of Hotties!

We're on a roll this week with our daily salute to couples in celebration of the overturning of DOMA and Proposition 8. We're not sure if these 2 gents are together but they sure do look similar! Hottie on the left is very adept at wearing a horizontal striped t-shirt, while hottie on the right sticks with the safe dark solid colors. And if they aren't entranced with each other then they're at least entranced with their iPhones! And are they wearing the same sunglasses but in different color frames?

Salute to Couples

You may have noticed we've been featuring a lot of pairs this past week. That's because it's a momentous week for same-sex couples. With the overturning of DOMA and the repeal of Proposition 8 we celebrate all those same-sex couples who have worked so hard, put themselves before the public time and time again telling their stories, and in doing so have changed the hearts of their parents and friends... thus affecting a rapid sea change in attitudes never before seen in our country. It's these couples we celebrate today for all that they've achieved for so many people.

And though we aren't of the impression that our hotties above are anything other than a couple of buds, they're a visible reminder to us of the great joy and progress we've seen this week. Hottie on the left seems barely able to keep up with the flood of news from SCOTUS yesterday, and hottie on the right seems to prefer to pause and reflect on this sea of change sweeping over our land.

It's decision day. We're all anxiously awaiting the 10am ruling from the Supreme Court on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California's Proposition 8 (defining marriage as exclusively between a man and a woman). And when the decision is handed down we hope that our faces mirror the joy and happiness that these two hottie have! 

And there'll be a DOMA Decision Day rally at 5:30pm at Cambridge City Hall (hosted by Mass Equality, GLAD, HRC, and many other social justice organizations). Our HOTT Crew will be there and we hope to see you there, too!

Double Tuesday - Cool and Collected

It's blistering hot outside, but inside we have two cool and collected hotties for your viewing pleasure! Both have made astute choices for office attire on such a warm day... that crisp, stylish confident look. We imagine they are as successful in the workplace as they are in their fashion choices.

Identical Cousins

Hottie on the left tends to lean to the left and adores wearing his shades underground. His identical cousin hottie on the right operates sans shades (he tucks them in his polo shirt, providing more opportunity to see his expertly trimmed chest hair) and leans to the right. Both have amazing blonde hair the color of ripening wheat and a fondness for reading The Economist. FT and GB have an incredible urge to whisk both of them away to the south of France!

In Living Color

There's nothing quite like a hottie bedecked in vibrant colors to bring alive the second day of Summer. Electric yellows and oranges and pinks and reds bring the brilliance of the summer sun into the depths of the subway lines as we hurtle on our way to North Station for our 2nd Annual Hotties on the T Cycling Festival on Cape Ann. And from the intent look on our hottie's face we do believe he wishes he was going with us. Or his he just in awe of us 5 men on the T wearing our flattering spandex cycling shorts?

And as any avid cyclist knows one has quite the attachment and attraction to one's bikes. So here are the stars of today's cycling adventure waiting to board the commuter rail train at North Station. Aren't they hot!

Departure Time

We were so downcast when we realized this hottie was disembarking from our Commuter Rail train 2 stops prior to ours. But what a pleasure it was when he stood up to exit the train as it afforded us a much more ample view of all that he had to offer. A wonderful start to the first weekend of Summer!

Fabulous Friday - D'un certain âge

A fabulous find on a fabulous Friday. A stunning gentleman d'un certain âge. That's a French phrase to describe someone who lives a life of style, elegance, discipline, simplicity and generosity. It's a phrase that describes a particular age range that's at it's prime (without the vulgarity of mentioning actual years). There's not an English equivalent. The closest we get to this elegant French description is the very inelegant American business term firing on all cylinders... a phrase we think is best applied to describing a Pan Am Stratocruiser as it wings its way across the Atlantic to Paris. Ah, Paris, city of light. Romantic strolls along the Seine. Savouring a Côtes du Rousillon on our balcony overlooking the Eiffel Tower. A full moon illuminating the Pont de Neuf at midnight. Oh dear... we're getting carried away here!

Getting back to our hottie above (that was a lovely trip to Paris, wasn't it?) we can't help but notice two very contrasting, yet exquisitely complimentary elements of style. His hair has delightful highlights of gray that are accentuated by a groomed 5 O'Clock shadow, giving us hints that he's attained a certain age range. Yet looking at his shoes we see a wonderfully playful choice... sneakers. And not just any sneakers, stylish color coordinated sneakers that hint at a younger age range. In-between we find a style of eyewear that gives us more clues to his personality (serious, intellectual) and a fitted buttoned-down pinstripe Oxford shirt. We imagine our hottie is successful in the workplace and an absolute delight after hours. And his age? Who cares! He's d'un certain âge!

Happy Friday! And don't forget to follow us on Twitter! @hottiesonthet

Boston Strong

He's the epitomé of the Boston Strong verbal meme. Handsome. Musclular. And a voracious reader of literature. We typically attempt to find out what book our hotties are reading, but we were distracted by this gentleman's magnificent manliness. And what a collection of clothing! Work boots, workout pants, T-shirt perfect for those sculpted pecs and biceps and a blue Boston Strong wristband.

Boston Strong!

Manwich is a Meal!

I don't need me no bologna*,
I don't want no ham and cheese,
I want something hot and hearty,
I want a manwich please.

I'm not talking turkey,
I want a bigger deal,
Don't feed me just a sandwich,
I want a manwich meal.

Sitting opposite this hottie above had us hankering for a manwich! Pants the color of farm fresh cream. Shirt the color of black olives fresh from the deli. And just look at that sandwich about to be raised to the lips of a gentleman who has an amazing resemblance to a young Rupert Everett! Delicious!

*To the large number of viewers in our Dominions Beyond the Seas "bologna" in America is pronounced "buh loan ee".

Roman Holiday

Several things about this hottie grabbed our attention. One was the perfect pose where he displayed his stunning profile (made even hotter by the delicious golden tan he's acquired). It's the kind of profile one would see on a sculpture by Michelangelo. You know, a renaissance sculpture like David. And then there's this hottie's choice of muted shades of green that play so well with his tan, and conveniently blend with the subway car's interior color scheme. It's like being on a Roman Holiday!

For Peet's Sake

FT and FTH have been rolling their eyes in bemusement at GB ever since he received his Kalita Wave Coffee Maker on Friday. The elements of perfection he has been trying to achieve in all aspects of the pour-over method of brewing coffee defy comprehension (hence our traditional use of the word "bemusement" above, intending to convey a sense of confusion). Weighing beans, weighing water, striving to get that precise water temperature of 207F.  And then there's the mastering of the perfect pour. Aim the pour at the target, then spiral outwards in concentric circles, then pause. Then repeat. GB consumed so much coffee yesterday it would supply the city of San Francisco for a year (we must confess it was astoundingly delicious).

So what better hottie to feature today than our dashing gentleman with a Peet's Coffee bag! We love the beige linen jacket with granite gray pants, and the almost violet shirt and Ray Bans sing summer in the city. He's the kind of man who can keep us awake on our commute.

Summer Color

Our HOTT Crew is spending this glorious day at our HOTT Condo in Provincetown. We're basking in brilliant sunshine on the deck, sipping our Vesper Martinis (cocktail time begins at 12:30pm) and admiring the stunning array of summertime flowers with their multitude of colors. And, like the flowers in the gardens around us, our stunning gentleman above is also bedecked in an array of summer color. His canary yellow Oxford shirt looks amazing when paired with his finely patterned robin's egg blue tie. Simply brilliant!

Fabulous Friday - Medical Man

Our hearts beat just a bit faster, our knees get just a bit weaker whenever we encounter a medical man hottie. What is it about quality healthcare that has us so enraptured? Well, let's take a study of this fine man above. The slip-on boat shoe-esque loafers have a perfect styling and worn sheen that go so well with the worn and every so delicious jeans.  A black backpack, black fleece jacket (sadly appropriate for today's weather) and rust-red T-shirt are nice, but take on that adorable look when paired with his magnificent good looks (eyebrows to die for!) and cute as a button Boston Red Sox baseball cap. Last, but not least, he's intently reading Review of Medical Microbiology and Immunology. He's studying to become a doctor! Swooooon!

Head Start

Our hottie today has a head start on the weekend. Boat shoes, flat-fronted khaki shorts and a deep blue T-shirt (that tattoo is rather seductive the way it halfway shows through his shirt sleeve). A full backpack leads us to believe this scruffilicious gent is on his way to North Station to catch the Downeaster to Maine!

Double Tuesday - Panavison

As you probably know by now GB forgot that yesterday (not today) was Tuesday, and neglected to create a Double Tuesday post. So we're bringing you one now. And we selected this pic not only because of the perfectly hot gents who are featured but also because the picture is in the exact same format as Panavision films (2.20: 1 ratio). Like the classic Panavision films of the 50's and 60's, this extra wide format allows us to see even more action, more drama, and yes, more... hotties! For proof compare this to the standard format in our post Happy Pride 2013! (clicking the title takes you to the post). Notice how the hottie above on the right is the same hottie in Happy Pride 2013!, yet look how much more storyline we get! It's as if a whole new scene unfurls before our eyes when we use Panavision. Hot!

And to ensure that GB wakes up properly and doesn't forget another Double Tuesday (we don't want to disappoint our hundreds of thousands of fans from around the world) we've ordered the trendy coffee maker that's taking Manhattan by storm. The Kalita Wave. As the New York Times states, "it's the current darling of high-end coffee." We hope this works. (We purchased ours from Irving Farm Coffee Roasters of Manhattan).

O Sole Mio

Today we're inspired by our hottie to speak Italian with a Neapolitan accent. O Sole Mio translates as "my sunshine" Look at the brilliantly white and very trendy Diadora T-shirt that compliments his blue-themed shoes, shorts and sports bag. We do believe our hottie may play soccer! And the pose is adorable!

Diesel Powered

We love Pride weekend when we see so many men wearing their most flattering attire. And this "Diesel powered" hottie certainly didn't disappoint. We're not sure which got our attention first, the bulging biceps barely constrained by the wickedly soft and lightweight material of his form fitting T-shirt or the clever positioning of his Diesel Crossbody Bag. And from a purely artistic perspective notice how well this hottie provides balanced perspective by creating a triangle of perfectly weighted proportions: the heavy thickness and weight of his wristwatch, his biceps (which are almost the same circumference as his waist), and the slightly oversized frames of his sunglasses! We can't help but think of the Campbell's Soup tagline, "M'm m'm good!

Happy Pride 2013!

We're pleased that the deluge seems to have ended and that today's Boston Pride Parade should be free of rain, so go on down to the parade route at noon and watch the largest Pride Parade in Boston history! 

And click here (and on the title of our Boston Pride 2012 Post) for a look at last year's Pride:

Today for Pride we offer you this delectable gentleman whom we had the pleasure of sitting across from on the T. Amazing how the simplicity of summer can be so appealing. Basic jeans, perfectly sized T-shirt, and omni-present ear buds that add depth and character to his outfit. And the black Nike FuelBand wristband shows that he's always on top of keeping in shape.

Fabulous Friday - A New Summer Rhythm

One of the delights of summer is the way it invites us to slow down for awhile and to simplify life at least a little. And what better exemplifies that than this handsome fellow above. It's as if he's felt the change of the season and is welcoming it with gladness. Gorgeous salmon colored shorts are the perfect choice not only for the season, but to accentuate his well-tanned legs. And the boat shoes make us feel as if we've already been transported to Ptown or Nantucket! A white polo shirt, sunglasses and an open book show us that he's immersed in the splendor of the season. We shall follow his example and slow down to enjoy this wonderful time of year!

Double Tuesday - Bear in the Woods

Ha! You thought this was going to be a picture of a couple of burly furry men! But no, what we brought forth for you today were two lithe in-shape hotties with undulating muscles and perfect summer attire. Hottie on the left has the latest in fashion for shorts and sports a nice tan that indicates he gets outside for play. Added to the shorts is a form fitting black T-shirt and close cropped hair. Very seductive. Hottie on the right is a bit more dressed, with a black collared jacket and longer hair. And just look at his seductive smile!

And we've noticed the new T Alerts system has debuted. We immediately noticed that the delay in minutes has now been replaced with terms such as "moderate delay". What exactly does that mean? Anyone have an idea what kind of delay "moderate" qualifies as in minutes?

Oh... there is a bear in the woods. GB and FT are still in Georgia and they have bears at their mountain top home (see below). They've named this one Joe after a human bear friend of theirs.

We found a way to wake oneself up on a wet Monday morning... Mr. Rainbow Coalition! Lemon yellow shorts, Navy blue polo shirt,  and Apple red back pack straps. And we love the long swept back hair that's contained only by the Sky blue baseball cap perched backwards on his head. It's primary colors and so much more. And we need the waking up after our exhausting, yet exhilarating weekend of cycling in the mountains and participating in the AIDSWalk & 5K Run.

Climbing our Kilimanjaro

Have you climbed your Mt. Kilimanjaro yet? We know of one who claims that it isn't hard at all, that it's accessible and entirely doable. Of course, claims such as those come from people who have never actually attempted a challenge the likes of Kilimanjaro. The kind of person who claims other peoples accomplishments as his own. 

Our HOTT Crew, however, relishes jumping into unfamiliar tasks. Taking on new challenges. At times being a bit wary and unsure of the task ahead. And learning from the unexpected physical and mental challenges. We have two Kilimanjaro challenges we're tackling this weekend. One is ascending incredibly steep inclines in the mountains, steeper and harder than we've ever done. Another is participating in the Boston AIDS Walk, A 5km walk through Boston in support of services to those with HIV/AIDS.
Above we have a fine fellow we encountered on the Atlanta Airport subway who turned out to be participating in the same mountain climbing event that we were! It's so nice to take on challenges with such hot men!

And above one can see exactly how steep and high we climbed. We were EXHAUSTED!

And here's Nippy climbing the last few feet before reaching Neels Gap at an elevation of over 3,000 feet! And then Nippy, FTH and Undercover RM (GB and FT stayed behind in the Georgia mountains) raced back to the Atlanta Airport afterwards to get back to Boston for their next challenge.

So the next time someone tells you a physical challenge is easy inquire if they've actually taken on a physical challenge themselves. Our HOTT Crew knows that physical challenges come in many varieties,  and when you're ready to take on a Kilimanjaro please let us know. We'd love to cheer you on!

Sizzling Hot! Sizzling hot as a hot summer day! This hottie captivated our attention so much we almost wish we weren't enroute to Hotlanta this morning. Simple yet fashionable shorts, plain T-shirt draped so that it gives more than a hint of the muscles underneath. And sunglasses perched atop his well-groomed head. Positively sizzling. Sizzling hot!

As you may already know we left early this morning (so early it was a bit cool) for our flight to Atlanta, and then we'll make the drive to Vogel State Park where we'll do our mountain climbing challenge on our bikes. Then FTH, Nippy and RM fly back on the last flight to Boston tonite so they can participate in the AIDS Walk on Sunday. It's a busy weekend for us, but we'll have pics!
