Better Off

Men's designers with fall collections to show in Milan and Paris this week would tell you otherwise, but we stand behind Canadian artist Zachari Logan when he asks: Pants, who needs 'em? That's the question he poses in The Myth of Pants, his latest show of drawings at Paris' Galerie Jeanroch Dard.

Depicting his own body—on life-size canvases, no less—he explore his fascination with "bravado, heroism, narcissism and stereotypic masculine portrayals." If you ask us, it's a little like Tom of Finland and the Stetson Man about to hook up on Brokeback Mountain.

Oh, in case you're wondering where exactly in Canada Zachari is from, it's a town called Saskatoon in the middle of Saskatchewan, where apparently they wear Huskies tees and not much else. Mush!...
