I’ve always wondered where these outfits came from, and it’s no wonder that I stumbled upon a website called SlickItUp.com that sells clothes that I could never wear, ever. Suits, jeans, pants, hoods, and street clothes – all more form fitting than if someone painted them on – great if you are a Greek God, bad if you are a semi-gorgeous person like me who has trouble getting into blue jeans in the morning.
Indeed, I must admit the clothes are really nice to look at and I would love to wear SOME of the outfits, but I am not in the shape that these models are in to even begin to make a purchase. The whole point, if you could wear ANY of these clothes and not be self-conscious, then perhaps you would like to come to my house for a day or two for a fashion show. I won’t drool, much.
The gallery on the website is most enticing, with a lot of beefcake models modeling clothes from the site that make me blush, and that isn’t easy. The main question I had was what is it like to wear these outfits and how does it feel? After checking out the site for a while (lol) … I ran across their FAQ section which reads:
SLICK IT UP products are all made of premium highest grade spandex, they are NOT thin or cheap or even see through like most spandex or garments you might find elsewhere. I have sourced hundreds of variations of spandex from all over the world and have picked the BEST available. Even the thread is use is the highest grade and a unique super strong yet slightly stretchy thread. Each finish I offer wears differently. The compression hood material is the heaviest and least stretchy but seams to be the most industrial and most resistant to wear, the latex look material is also very resilient. The leather look material is shinier at first because it has never been stretched or worn but once it has been worn a couple times it “breaks-in” and get a more leather like “eggshell” finish that is somewhere between latex look and compression hood material finish. The mercury finish is the same material as the leather look but it is the most delicate of them all as it is a mercury finish screened on to a black spandex so I recommend being more cautious with this material but it will not flake or crack but does wear over time like anything else which can expose the black lycra underneath. Most people do not mind if or when this happens. The leather look wear the same way but is not as visible as it is black finish screened on black spandex.
One thing is for sure, I have to hit the gym. It’s not because I want to look like the maniac Father from “People Under The Stairs,” but because these men are absolutely beautiful and I don’t think I can go another minute without being comfortable enough to slip into an outfit that was form fitting and walk around….. of course, that won’t happen unless all of the Taco Bells in the United States imploded.
At the very least I can get me some sexy underwear…. sheesh.
