Justin Rocket Silverman's Effability Diminished By 'Men's Health' SpreadS

For months or maybe years, AM New York editor Justin Rocket Silverman has enjoyed a reputation as, basically, the only cute straight guy at blogmedia parties besides Times party-ho Nick Confessore. But a spread in the September issue of Men's Health has jeopardized that status, potentially forevs.

Justin is described as a "creative type," which sounds promising. But then we hear that he showed up to the shoot in "Rockport loafers." Shudder. Justin, you're not a dad! There's no need to wear Rockport loafers, or loafers of any nature, for at least another 20 or 30 years!

The worst part is that Men's Health toughened him up by replacing the loafers with motorcycle boots... Rockport motorcycle boots.
