Are ‘Counting On’ Stars John David Duggar And Abbie Grace Burnett Playing Matchmaker For Jeremiah Duggar?

Counting On star John David Duggar and his fiancée Abbie Grace Burnett set a Duggar family record last month with the quickest courtship so far. There was less than a month between their courtship and engagement announcements, and now fans are wondering if the couple is trying to play matchmaker for their siblings.

After John David and Abbie Grace posted a pic on Instagram earlier this week with his brother Jeremiah and her twin sisters, fans are losing their minds over the romantic possibilities between the Duggar and Burnett kids, as well as the chances of John David and Abbie Grace having their own set of twins.

“Wait, so there are twins on Abbie’s side as well as the two sets on JD’s? They just became front-runners for the first couple to have twins of their own,” wrote a fan on Reddit.

Jill Duggar and Anna Duggar also commented on the pic, with Jill writing “Nice!” and Anna adding, “Y’all have fun!”

Some of John David and Abbie’s followers were also crushing on 19-year-old Jeremiah — who also has a twin brother, Jedidiah — and wanted to know if he was single and looking. There are currently three boys in the Duggar family who are single and of courting age, the 19-year-old twins and 18-year-old Jason. 28-year-old Jana Duggar, John David’s twin sister, is the only single Duggar woman who is old enough to court.

After their whirlwind engagement, there is a lot of excitement in John David and Abbie Grace’s future. As In Touch Weekly reports, they announced their courtship on June 26th, and by July 25th they were engaged.

The Duggar family made the engagement announcement, and they said in a statement that John David and Abbie Grace are a wonderful match, and they make a beautiful couple. They added that they love weddings and can’t wait for this one.

After knowing of each other for years, 28-year-old John David and 26-year-old Abbie Grace really got know each other when he flew to Oklahoma for a church event earlier this summer. Before they started courting, John David had talked about being a “Bachelor to the Rapture,” but once he connected with Abbie Grace, he changed his tune.

Because they are quite a bit older than the other Duggars who have courted, it appears that the rules were a bit more relaxed for John David and Abbie Grace, with the couple allegedly going out unchaperoned and displaying a bit of PDA during a trip to Walmart.

To find out more about John David Duggar and Abbie Grace Burnett, plus get an inside look at the rest of the married Duggar kids, tune into new episodes of Counting On, which air Monday nights on TLC.

Seth MacFarlane Says He Made Weinstein Oscars Joke ‘on Purpose’

Long before Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexual misconduct by dozens of women, Seth MacFarlane made a joke at the 2013 Oscars about the film producer’s alleged behavior.

“That one was on purpose,” the Family Guy creator, 44, told Us Weekly exclusively while celebrating the 300th episode of the Fox animated sitcom at a party in Los Angeles on Wednesday, January 10.

Emma Stone Seth McFarlane Harvey Weinstein

During the awards ceremony, MacFarlane was on stage with Emma Stone to announce the nominations for best supporting actress when he quipped, “Congratulations, you five ladies no longer have to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein.” Video of the joke resurfaced last October after Weinstein, 65, came under fire for mounting allegations of sexual harassment and assault, prompting MacFarlane to issue a statement.

“In 2011, my friend and colleague Jessica Barth, with whom I worked on the Ted films, confided in me regarding her encounter with Harvey Weinstein and his attempted advances,” he wrote on Twitter on October 11. “She has since courageously come forward to speak out. It was with this account in mind that, when I hosted the Oscars in 2013, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to take a hard swing in his direction.”

After releasing his statement, the American Dad cocreator was accused on social media of knowing about Weinstein’s alleged misconduct and not speaking up. In response, he told Us on Wednesday, “I was speaking after having heard a personal account that enraged me. And yeah, if I had to do it over again, I would do it again. I had the good fortune never to have worked with him, nor would I ever have worked with him. But I am happy that I spoke up when I did, even if it was in the form of a veiled satirical moment.”

The Oscars weren’t the only time that MacFarlane essentially predicted the future. In a 2005 episode of Family Guy, Stewie ran naked through a mall, screaming, “I’ve escaped from Kevin Spacey’s basement!” Eleven years later, the House of Cards alum, 58, was also accused of sexual misconduct.

Family Guy writers were almost hearing a lot of the same rumors that everyone else was,” the Ted star told Us. “If we in some way contributed to the exposure of a lot of this stuff, then that’s a positive thing and I’m happy the show was a part of that, indirectly or not. … There is a lot of press out there that says we were sort of these prognosticators, that we knew things that everyone didn’t. It’s not true. I wish it were. It would be a lot more badass if it were, but it’s not.”

When Clothing Really Matters: Eva Hagberg Fisher’s Essay on…

When Clothing Really Matters: Eva Hagberg Fisher’s Essay on Appearance and Credibility for Women

At Put This On, most of what we write about falls into two basic categories: dressing to make the right impression/make yourself look good, and dressing in a way that you enjoy–refining your personal style, getting inspired. The stakes are generally low. Sure, you want to wear the right clothes to your job interview, or melt faces with your new leather jacket, but mostly, all that’s at risk is your pride (and some money). In men’s style, that’s the luxury we have.

The New York Times published a really powerful essay by Eva Hagberg Fisher on how she navigated the process of filing a sexual harassment complaint, through the lens of the choices she made about her clothing and appearance. In order to be believable, our culture requires women in that situation to walk some very fine lines. As Fisher puts it, “you always want to stay ‘just plausibly sexy
enough to look like you could have been harassed but 100 percent weren’t
asking for it.’”

Over the last year and a half, I have needed a lot
of outfits. I have also needed to be consistent. I have needed to be
ready, at every moment, to be seen as both a poverty-stricken graduate
student and a reliable adult. As an accuser, I need to be a
news-team-ready correspondent and someone who certainly wasn’t doing
this for the limelight. I didn’t know any of this when I started. I
learned this all on the full-time job that is being an objector to
sexual harassment in America. 
           
         
       
     

     

     
 

 
   
  

Some of what I learned to wear I learned on my
own, by thinking to myself about what I needed to exhibit. Some of it —
you must always put your hair up and never show any skin — came from a
politically savvy friend. She is the reason I’m wearing a black
turtleneck on four news shows. I refused to be photographed at home, or
sitting down. I wanted to project strength, and also a kind of
neutrality.

It’s a really interesting, if depressing, piece, artfully written and presented, and even funny. And it’s another piece of evidence that our clothing choices are often our first invitation to others to make judgments about us, and something we should try to control. In most situations for men, we’re free to choose the impressions we want to make, rather than have what we need to do coded in unwritten, shifting societal rules, with our credibility on the line.

What You Can Really Afford: Actual WorkwearFollowing up on…

What You Can Really Afford: Actual Workwear

Following up on Derek’s post yesterday about getting creative with a casual wardrobe based on workwear archetypes, I wanted to write a little about what remain some of my favorite brands, the ones that continue to make durable, inexpensive clothing for workers. Lines like Dickies and Carhartt, while they occasionally make gestures in the direction of fashion (usually to try to catch up to the cool kids wearing their gear in unintended settings), focus on making practical clothes that the wearer really won’t think about much. Unless you’re like me and spend as many hours searching eBay for classic Carhartt as doing manual labor most weeks.

There’s a reason many of us look for, say, Dickies collaboration pieces rather than real Dickies. Or “takes” on workwear from brands like Engineered Garments or Orslow. We’re used to seeking out clothing cut to flatter and made from comfortable, interesting fabrics. Those are not qualities you generally find on a rack of Ben Davis Gorilla Cut pants, for example. And I admit that the durability of real workwear is overstated. Brands tend to brag about toughness but a lot of this stuff is more disposable than anything. When workwear makes trade-offs among well-made, good-looking, and cheap, it usually values cheap.

Still, as with vintage, there’s a particular satisfaction in taking something designed with little aesthetic concern and fitting it into your wardrobe. It’s also fun to track down the sources for the modern versions of workwear we like, and to consider how others have taken workwear out of its clock-punching context and made it their own. I’ll stop short of saying it feels authentic because any authenticity here is thoroughly borrowed. 

Carhartt

Carhartt’s signature achievement is their use of brown “duck” fabric for pretty much everything–from hats to jackets to overalls. In my opinion brown duck (really more of a tan) is a great neutral and a sollid match with other things we like, especially in fall–blue oxford cloth, shetland sweaters, denim, olive drab ( see lead image on this post). The Carhartt piece I wear the most now is a blanket lined chore jacket–I think it’s the same model Brian from Wooden Sleepers mentions here.  But I’ve been meaning to get a pair of overalls. Carhartt has a decent “fashion” line as well known as Work in Progress (WIP).

As with many other workwear brands, with Carhartt I often size down on shirts and jackets and up on pants. Jackets fit big to accomodate layers and movement; on the other hand, pants are not vanity sized, so rather than squeeze into the waist of my “usual size” I’ll buy a size up. The pants aren’t going to fit trim either way.

Dickies

Dickies have been everyone’s go-to cheap pants forever. Around since 1922, today the brand make a ton of legit workwear for many professions, including hi-visibility stuff for road work and medical scrubs. But most guys know them for the 874 work pants, a cotton blend chino that’s, frankly, as stiff as it is cheap (currently $ 19.99)–recognizable in part because of their wide belt loops and slide, rather than button, closure. You might spend more than $ 20 getting them hemmed at the dry cleaner, maybe one reason it’s sometimes been considered standard to just cut them off at the ankle (every time you cut off a pair of Dickies, Johnny Knoxville gets a $ 0.16 royalty check). Dickies have also long had a presence in hip hop/streetwear scenes, and have a number of well regarded collaborations in fashion, including with J. Crew and Sasquatchfabrix.

I like the khaki color and the Air Force blue–they’re a nice alternative to denim. Although they’re lighter than denim, the fabric blend is not, in my opinion, the most comfortable in hot weather. As with Carhartt, I suggest sizing up a little on the pants, and getting them tailored to fit, like Chris Gibbs, or DIY-ing it. Unless you opt for a stretch model, Dickies don’t have a lot of give.

Ben Davis

Although I’ve lived on the east coast all my life, I’ve always seen Ben Davis as sort of the West Coast-exclusive Dickies. We just didn’t see BD pieces around much growing up (which made them somewhat more desirable). Their pants (especially in the “gorilla cut”) have a rep for being a little baggier than Dickies–somewhat hilariously, they don’t make lower than size 30 waist in pants, and no size small for shirts. BD shorts, worn baggy and clean, often with high socks, are historically a mark of California gang style. Ben Davis are also known for their zip work shirts, a style I find a little hard to wear. Famously, Dr. Dre in 1992′s Let Me Ride video selects from a closet full of black Ben Davis shirts. 

Like many of these brands, Ben Davis benefits a lot from having a damn cool logo. Coincidentally, I learned a lot about many of these brands from writer Gary Warnett, whose site’s logo is a Ben Davis logo flip, and there’s allegedly a connection between the logo and that of X-LARGE, one of the first modern streetwear brands. Like a lot of American brands, BD has an entirely streetwear based presence in Japan. They also recently collaborated with Opening Ceremony.

Le Laboureur

Turns out people outside of the US do work, too. The stuff I’ve handled from French label Le Labourer–best known for work jackets and corduroy pants–is heavier and more refined than most of the American stuff discussed so far–of course it’s still made in France and not QUITE as cheap. Most of the American brands have offshored most or all of their manufacturing. A moleskin LL jacket will run you about $ 100, a wool one nearly double (I have this one myself). These are straightforward, unlined jackets, but they make for great outer layers in the fall and winter. Le Labourer is also known for making jackets for Junya Watanabe’s MAN line, which are a little trimmer and wilder–haven’t seen these widely available for a few years. LL makes some wild high-waisted, buckle back trousers but I’ve yet to track a pair of these down. This stuff has a more country feel than the American brands, and less hunting (like Carhartt) and more wandering fallow fields.

Le Laboureur outerwear is sized numerically. I’ve found that a size 3 fits me best (although not trim), and I’m usually a L in American brands. So, generally, size 1 is a small, 2 a medium, etc.

Expect more budget friendly workwear profiles from us next week.

eBay Roundup

We spend hours trawling for the best of menswear on eBay so that you don’t have to. To get a third eBay roundup each week, along with a list of the best sales, subscribe to our exclusive Inside Track newsletter. It only costs $ 5 a month. The savings you’d earn from just one eBay purchase a year will offset the subscription.

There’s some tremendous outerwear in today’s roundup, including this Rocky Mountain Featherbed down vest, Engineered Garments field parka, and brown leather Billy Reid bomber. This “Enemies of the Gentleman’s Wardrobe” pocket square also isn’t that much cheaper than retail, but it’s fun and you’d save a few bucks. Maybe something to put towards a sloppy burger.

Our own Pete has a bunch of great stuff listed over at Grailed this week. I love the South2 West8 retro-style hiking backpack, white Heschung moccasins, Engineered Garments duffle coat, and Crescent Down Works puffer vest. This knitted version of Engineered Garments’ popular Bedford is also great – and a rare find. You can see Pete team it with a turtleneck here

We pulled a bit from Etsy and Grailed today, two other great sites for second-hand deals. I especially like this shop on Etsy, which sells vintage militaria and workwear, although the seller’s prices are admittedly a bit high.

So many good things in today’s roundup, from a vintage RRL ranch jacket to Private White VC’s “twin track” moto- and field-jacket hybrid. There are also some Sartoria Formosa suits in the tailoring section, as well as some really nice work boots for footwear. Lastly, LuxeSwap is clearing out a ton of Drake’s ties this week.

‘Rock On’: Women, Ageing and Popular Music

‘Rock On’: Women, Ageing and Popular Music

For female pop stars, whose star bodies and star performances are undisputedly the objects of a sexualized external gaze, the process of ageing in public poses particular challenges. Taking a broadly feminist perspective, ‘Rock On’: women, ageing and popular music shifts popular music studies in a new direction. Focussing on British, American and Latina women performers and ageing, the collection investigates the cultural work performed by artists such as Shirley Bassey, Petula Clark, Madonna, Celia Cruz, Grace Jones and Courtney Love.

The study crosses generations of performers and audiences enabling an examination of changing socio-historical contexts and an exploration of the relationships at play between performance strategies, star persona and the popular music press. For instance, the strategies employed by Madonna and Grace Jones to engage with the processes and issues related to public ageing are not the same as those employed by Courtney Love or Celia Cruz. The essays in this insightful collection reflect on the ways that artists and fans destabilise both the linear trajectories and the compelling weight of expectations regarding ageing by employing different modalities of resistance through persona re-invention, nostalgia, postmodern intertextuality and even early death as the ultimate denial of age.
