Why Is Mark Sanchez Wearing Such Disgusting Clothing?

NOT QUITE DIRTY SANCHEZI was kind of excited for this GQ photo spread of Mark Sanchez, the new quarterback for the New York Jets! Until I saw how unbelievably ghetto the clothing was. Um, "Swim trunks, $28, by American Apparel"? Really? "Sunglasses by Ray-Ban"? LOL. "Jacket, $175, by A|X Armani Exchange"? Barf. Who would be caught dead in this garbage? Ha ha: "Sweatpants, $40, by J. Crew." OMG: "Hoodie, $98, by Perry Ellis." It goes on and on! "T-shirt, $44, by French Connection." This is so humiliating! Who is doing the styling at GQ now-someone's mom in Minnesota?

Maul of the Americans.

You know, it would've been an even cheaper photo shoot if they ditched the clothes entirely.

Keep the Ray-Bans, though.

OMG you're so right those photos are grody what is that shit??

Well, there is the possibility that it is a very meta fashion spread, you know, considering: "Mark Sanchez has a tattoo of "Sanchez" on the inside of his lower lip"

It must be complicated to get a look at the inside of his lips whilst in the position described! Guess we should all be heading off to yoga today.

Well, he is going to New York, so… you know… The Awl Special In Depth Report.

It's called "appeasing your advertisers" and it's a very important skill to have in These Times.

mathnet (#27)

But how does picking the nastiest, most ill-fitting junk your advertisers produce appease anyone?

pot-pourri (#722)

That's a good question. But if you think about it, a "Sanchez on the beach" shoot is the perfect place to stick a lame-ass Guess by Marciano cutoff jean, just so you can bring it up as an example of editorial support when Guess calls to complain. Because no one's looking at what he's wearing, anyway. (Except Choire, evidently)

And FYI I tried really hard to include a Dirty Sanchez joke in there somewhere, but failed.

I think this might be thought of as going down-market. For the recessionistas. But they sell fantasy, of course.

BlinkyMcChuck (#202)

I mean, really? I just want him running in the jockstrap.

hman (#53)

Me too, but not if it's BIKE.

Thank God Members Only is timeless.

Abe Sauer (#148)

Where I live (not NY!) there is a Burlington coat factory and they just put out racks and racks of new (old) Members Only jackets with the sign "New! Hot!" they are maybe the 4th most expensive things in the store.

That mesh hoodie is FOUL.

When you're hot you can wear whatever the fuck you want.

my thought exactly. the AA suit actually works for me, the rest is meh. I had a little trouble deciding if Choire meant this post to be a tad ironic, I'm not used to the strident fashiongay tone from him.

nice call. If I needed to dress my douchebag for the summer months…I would certainly turn to this stylist.

Clothing reminds of that shop in the WEHO…what was it…? I forget…always had that killer catalogue that would have my teenage self stuck in the bathroom making Mom very uncomfortable. Help me out…forgot the name of the deal.

International Male?

wiilliiaamm (#225)

Ahhh Yessss…Any young homo (not of LA) worth his salt would make the pilgrimage to the store in WEHO to stare agog at the ridikolus fashion (?) assigned to us queer folk. Never really cotton'd to it all–although some of the models were e z on the I's.

mattymatt (#495)

Oh this is a thrilling fetish that homosexual GQ has captured! A double-humiliation for the jocks as they are made to semi-undress out of silly clothing that they did not want to wear in the first place.

I am 100% on-board with this.

popcesspool (#727)

If ESPN the Mag had done this spread, Sanchez would've been naked.

wiilliiaamm (#225)

Which is precisely why I have a subscription to that magazine.
