Men and Monday Wear

I thought this one would be a no-brainer, I mean you are a guy playing mas on Carnival Monday how much thought really goes into what you wear? However after a comment on my female Monday wear post I have decided to give a little guidance to the male newbies in terms of options for Monday wear.

If you are playing with a band that offers Monday wear to their masqueraders chances are as a guy you will be getting a T Shirt with the band or sections name emblazoned on it. In that case you can either wear your shorts/pants that are given or a pair of shorts of your own (man purse optional):

Getting no Monday wear from your band of choice means that the options are to either wear part of your costume, for example the shorts with waist band, chest piece, or the even the full costume; I have also noticed a trend with guys getting airbrushed, which when done right looks very cool:

Alternately you can wear a vest or T shirt with your shorts, which is what most guys choose to do on Monday, accessorized with a hat and sunglasses:

Then, we have the guys whose only accessory is their wash board abs and they often have them on full display wearing nothing on top, only shorts. I must point out that though women love looking at the men with chiseled bodies we really prefer the shorts NOT be anything clinging, made of spandex or showing off the family jewels:

And finally we have that special male specimen who takes it one step further and choose to jazz up their shorts with instructions to the ladies… or guys:

As for refreshing your shorts after a hard day of sweating, wining and drinking on Monday the nylon board shorts that most bands give these days tend to be easy to give a wash when you get home and because of the fabric it dries pretty quickly as well. So no worries there on getting it cleaned the next day, and of course if you were passed out drunk and really did not have the time to get anything cleaned, you are a guy, just wear another pair of shorts!
