The 2018 Man Calendar

Friday, January 12

Before we get to the good stuff, I wanted to apologize for not getting this out in a more timely manner. Colt and I both came down with the flu right after the new year, and it's been a rough road to recovery.

But now, without further ado (and excuses), I'd like to present:

The 2018 Man Calendar: Pattern Play

The 2018 Man Calendar:

Mr. January: Taika Waititi
Mr. February: Tom Hiddleston
Mr. March: Ryan Reynolds
Mr. April: Oscar Isaac
Mr. May: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson
Mr. June: Chris Evans
Mr. July: Chris Pine
Mr. August: Chris Hemsworth
Mr. September: Idris Elba
Mr. October: Dan Stevens
Mr. November: Bob Morley
Mr. December: Jake Gyllenhaal

The 2018 version of the Man Calendar is the 14th edition1 of this silly little project. Each year has a loose theme, and this year's came from the various photos I found of the guys I wanted to include wearing patterned tops/jackets.

As my gift to you, here's the whole year in a ZIP file that you can download for your own personal use. (And here's a ZIP of the desktop versions, too.)

If you want a physical version of the calendar, here's what I do: Print each month on white cardstock, then trim the sheets to 6"x9". (The files are 150 dpi, which means they'll look larger than 6"x9" when you open them, but they should print fine.) I then punch a hole in the top and hang them from a jump ring. I keep mine in my cubicle at work.

What do you think of this year's calendar? Thanks for all of the ideas you offered up last month! For anyone who's curious, there are four new gentlemen included for 2018—Misters January, March, July, and October. I was sad to kick the previous years' inclusions to the curb, but I gotta be ruthless to get the number down to 12!

Here's wishing you a happy 2018 full of nice scenery!
