While we were replaying episodes of True Blood on our DVR and suffering from total TB withdrawal, it seems hotties Alexander Skarsgård and Joe Manganiello were busy suiting up for magazine covers. The sexy beasts have surfaced on August Man looking more put together than humanly possible. In fact, they’re both so unbelievably well-dressed that we can’t choose which steamy cover outfit we like better! How does one decide between Skarsgård’s take-me-out-to-the-ball tux (and gloves?!) and Manganiello’s perfectly layered ensemble?
Since we HAVE to choose, let’s start with Alexander Skarsgård aka Eric Northman’s uh-mazing cover in a tux since we like our vampires fancy (cue Drake). Not only is Alexander wearing that tuxedo, but his hair is laid for the gods with just the right amount of pomade. Wowza. The button on his jacket is jusssssst snug enough so we can see his slender bod under all that fabric, and the satin trim on the lapel is so subtly-chic. To top off his wintery ensemble, he slid on a pair of leather gloves so he can look fash-forward even while sipping a cocktail outside on a balcony during a blustery night.
And for Joe Manganiello’s cover? First off, let’s talk about that beard. It’s perfection. It’s hard to keep a beard that thick so well-trimmed, and for that, we applaud him. It also looks like he’s unbuttoning his shirt, but we know he just wanted to show off those KILLER origami cuffs. (You can’t fool us!) For a pop of color—without going for the obvious tie choice—he tucked a burgundy scarf under his gray checkered suit to keep warm and still look chic. But to be honest, we’re just a wee bit upset that August Man didn’t take this opportunity to give us another shirtless photo of Manganiello (you haven’t lived until you’ve seen his washboard abs), but we’ll settle for man cleavage.
