Enter: Guinness barbecue… read more

50+ Awesome Handmade T-Shirts for Men

created at: 04/09/2012

The t-shirt. It's soft, it's comfortable, conveys your personality, and if you play your cards right, can be worn at least twice before it needs to go through the washing machine.

I'd even go as far as to say that in a hundred years, in 2112 (beware the Priests of the Temples of Syrinx!), folks everywhere will still be wearing the basic cotton, screenprinted t-shirt. I welcome your guesses as to the imagery in the comments… read more

If you're looking for a unique bike, might I suggest skipping metal and opting for a wooden bike? I mean, seriously, how cool would it be to ride around on a handcrafted wooden bicycle? I imagine it doesn't have the strength of its metal siblings, but dang it's cool… read more

How to: Make Healthy DIY Fruit Roll-Ups

created at: 04/06/2012

Do you remember when you were a kid, and your friend's houses always seemed to have snacks that your parents never bought? For me, it was Capri Sun, frozen pizza, and Fruit Roll-Ups. I mean, yeah, I guess I appreciate my parents watching out for our health growing up, but boy, what I wouldn't have given for just one of those sweet, spiraly chewies after a day playing in the sun. Especially those ones that had the tongue tattoos! Oh man, remember?

In my late twenties, I still have a soft spot for those indulgences, and I've been known to sneak a box of Bagel Bites into the grocery cart. And my favorite thing to eat while on a road trip? Fruit leather, which is basically the grown-up version of a Fruit… read more

Please Discuss: How Do You Feel About Chest & Body Hair?

created at: 04/05/2012

I'll admit...that's a pretty unlikely photo to accompany a post on ManMade. But, bear with me. (Get it?)

It's a screenshot of the funniest site I've found this week, a Pinterest page entitled, "Hairy Chests I Want to Cry On," by comedian Stacey Nightmare. It includes, not surprisingly, some fine, manly chests, but the real gem is Stacey's commentary, including captions like,

  • Elliott Gould. I want to shrink down to the size of a thimble & frolic on his chest like a young lamb in the springtime.
  • Mike Rowe, I can't decide if I want to cry on your chest hair or lay eggs in it.
  • Lee Majors. Remember the Six Million Dollar Man? They paid him by the chest hair.
Okay, you get it. It's funny, but it also serves as a helpful, perhaps even encouraging, reminder: In the era of when nearly every Men's Health magazine cover has featured some ripped dude with a torso as smooth as his equally-waxed bottom, some people think having body hair is something that comes along with being a guy.
