Perhaps one of the most mystifying trends in interior design in the last 20 years is the advent of the man cave, that place where men must go to be alone with other men, as though this is a rare pleasure that cannot be enjoyed in any other context. The man cave represents the notion that women don’t drink beer, don’t like sports, don’t play darts or billiards, don’t talk dirty, don’t listen to loud rock ’n’ roll, and don’t get stoned. Who are these women? They’re not from Philly, that’s for sure.
At any rate, the man cave necessitates a very specific aesthetic: beer paraphernalia, sports-related souvenirs, vintage signs and, sometimes, posters of buxom ladies. And there is no better place to outfit a man cave than Craigslist, where it takes just the words in the search bar to call up all kinds of suggestions from fellow spelunkers trying to sell off the last vestiges of their own Neanderthal residences. Here, for your pleasure, are some items that were all posted within the last couple weeks with mention of putting them in a man cave.
