Can You Spot a Straight Guy?

Gay comedy duo Jeffery Self and Cole Escola, stars of the former Logo show Jeffery & Cole Casserole, recently took to the streets of New York City for a little straight-spotting.

Armed with a copy of Self's book, Straight People: A Spotter's Guide to the Fascinating World of Heterosexuals, they discuss attributes that, according to Self, are likely indicators of heterosexuality, including baggy jeans, dirty shoes, facial hair, and foods like potatoes, spaghetti sauce, and soul food. It's obviously tongue-in-cheek (plenty of gay men don't like skinny jeans, and facial hair is very in right now), but it's good for a chuckle.

Watch below, and let us know: how's your gaydar these days? Is it easier or tougher than it used to be to pick gays out of the crowd?
