The Monday Hotness: Well SOMEONE Had to Say It Edition

Filed under: Be Super Fantastic,The Monday Hotness — Miss Plumcake @ 8:43 am

I think we can all learn a little something from the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Jr., I mean sure, he was an amazing orator, civil rights leader and minister, and if you don’t get choked up listening to his I Have a Dream speech you’re probably clinically dead, but most importantly brother knew how to wear a suit.

1) Narrow black ties with a sharkskin suit are always cool.

The narrow black tie.

2) It is important to show the right amount of cuff when executing the always-tricky down-hammered double fingergun; 1/4 inch too much or too little and someone’s gonna lose an eye.

The cuff’s the thing

(do not attempt this at home. These are advanced fingerguns)

C) A short man –the good doctor wasn’t even 5’7″– can wear a longer jacket and a fuller pant, as long as the tailoring is disciplined.

the walking stick is a nice touch, too

D)  There is nothing hotter than integrity.

MLK listening


  1. You’re right – SOMEONE had to say it, and you said it well. Dr. King was a sharp-dressed man. Something my father pointed out to me when I was a youngling.

  2. There is nothing hotter than a man who fights for social justice, his principles and his people! My favorite quality in Dr. King? He truly believed we were ALL his people.
