Getting Dapper with the Men of HIMYM in Playboy   

Thanks to the name of this blog I get a lot of, uh, interesting PR email that other TV bloggers don’t typically get… If you ever need a press press to the Adult Entertainment Expo, I’m your girl. At some point I ended up on Playboy’s PR list. Normally I glance at the emails and then delete them. I am, after all, a straight female. Not generally their target audience, if you get my drift.

Today’s email is the first time I’ve not only given my full attention to one of the emails but also emailed back for more information. I’m shameless. But who wouldn’t see Neil Patrick Harris and Playboy in the same sentence and not stop in their tracks? A zombie, that’s who. Or maybe a straight male. (Possibly the same being?) (No, seriously, look at that picture of Neil?! Who can resist that?!)

You read that right. Neil, Josh Radnor, and Jason Segel suited up in Hickey Freeman, Paul Smith, Hugo Boss, Isaia and more for the December issue of Playboy (on newsstands now!!). Be still my heart! Here’s a Playboy I may need to seek out.

The 4-page pictorial is in celebration of How I Met Your Mother’s 100th episode and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate. Ok… now I just sound creepy. But, seriously, three of my favorite comedy guys getting all dressed up for a photo-shoot? I do approve.

And the guys have got some fashion advice to share as well, including these tidbits…

Neil Patrick Harris
“If you can afford it, I’d recommend having your own wardrobe department.”

Jason Segel
“Right after Sarah Marshall, the publicist said to me, ‘Listen, you’re kind of successful now, so you really have to step it up. You can’t keep dressing like this.’ Now my costume lady for that film and I Love You, Man puts outfits on hangers for me marked MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY…It’s embarrassing, but I kind of love it.”

Josh Radnor
“I have fond memories of parachute pants!”

Here’s a group shot of the guys. Check out the December issue of Playboy for more!

    It makes me more than a little happy that I have a photo with Jason before he was told what to wear each day.

    But, that’s an article worth reading, I agree, Rae.

    This going to sound odd, but Ted’s hair looks so cute.

      Ted’s hair is always cute!!!!
      But they do all look nice in their suits. Like a striped suit.
      I like that odd button on Ted’s left sleeve.

    Am I the only one who (foolishly) thought that because this is Playboy, they’d be wearing far less clothing? I forgot what the intended audience of this magazine was…
