New clothes.





From Thom Browne. Very arty and amusing. Seems like a walking cubist painting...



... worn by Harold Lloyd.

Pajama Boy gets his first suit?

Square-pants and pajamas are trendy. If it were socially acceptable...

Road kill David Byrne.

Larry's Third Law: Fashion is for suckers.

Debbie Andrews said...

At least they're not wearing shorts.

John Lynch said...

Looks like the mats on the floorboard of my car.

AReasonableMan said...

I'm thinking Bob Dylan was involved at some level.

Oso Negro said...

That's pretty fucked up. It would be nice to see new clothes invented, though.

urbane legend said...

Hmmm, dark ties. So no white socks with the sandals? I love the smell of fashion parody in the morning.

EDH said...

Why are the lenses of his glasses two different sizes?

Curious George said...

Looks like the guy is wearing car floormats.

GAHCindy said...

Floormats. Think the designer is making a statement about how men are treated these days? Hm.

Clyde said...

Is that collection where Tom Brady got the huge jacket he was wearing yesterday?

Chick magnet.

These male models can get away with wearing lipstick. But think about how strong the cultural sex roles are. A man would be subject to ridicule if he wore lipstick in public. What if he wanted a little rouge for his pale complexion?

I just point out how we aren't truly free because societal norms rule us.

Christy said...

Brings to mind a rainy Sunday afternoon in late February.

madAsHell said...

Wouldn't it be easier to put a "Kick Me" sticker on the guys back??

SDaly said...

Glad I didn't throw mine away. Told the kids it would be coming back in style!

Alex said...

In Arlen, Texas wearing that would get your ass kicked.

Original Mike said...

Goalie.

Welcome to the human race. It has ever been so and always will be so. Societal norms, while they do change, rule the humans who live in society.

Wilbur said...

He looks like The Banana Man. As played by Harold Lloyd.

David said...

$250 per pair cotton boxer shorts (on his web site.)

Cool.

David said...

There is an ecclesiastical vibe to the stuff on the models. Modernist Papal.

@GAHCindy, John L,

Floormats. Think the designer is making a statement about how men are treated these days

Yep, first thing I thought of --- flooring,

Reminds me of the old "man joke" for the ladies:

Q: Why is a man like linoleum?

A: 'Cause, if you lay him right the first time, you can walk all over him for years.

Fabi said...

I remember my first flashback.

MaxedOutMama said...

There are times when I simply must disagree. I did agree with the expression on the model's face.

walter said...

Scrappy fashion..

robother said...

Already, a fashion tribute to the King bust flap.

Bad Lieutenant said...

Are you sure it's a man?

n.n said...

PajamaBoy, SquarePants.

Depends how he wears his lipstick:

New fashion? Bring them back, rather. Breeches and hose for instance. My calves would make a capital appearance in those. Show a fine turn of leg, what?

And powdered wigs. Would look good on me and all fellows showing a bit sparse on top.

Mac McConnell said...

Thom Browne over reacted to the criticism that today's men's' suits coats are too tight and short. No word on whether he agrees with Tom Ford that all men should take it up the ass to be understanding of women.

Phil 3:14 said...

"Does this suit make me look flat?"

roesch/voltaire said...

I think it is a combination of Joseph Beuys felt constructions and Philip Guston's shoes.

bgates said...

Donald Trump always wears suits, and people think he's ridiculous too. #ChuckImpression

JML said...

Phil at 3:14. Great pun! It wears well.

Anyway, I don't get it. I'm wearing snoopy leasure pants, black socks and an un-tucked polo. I can't wait until I'm retired and can dress this way all day.

Phil 3:14 said...

JML;

Is it casual Friday everyday at your work?

buwaya said...

I dress like a Cuban taxi driver at work, says my wife.
But its California.

JML said...

Phil 3:14 - I changed pants as soon as I got home. But it can be pretty casual. I once wore shorts just to see if anyone would say anything. No one did. I was so uncomfortable I had to go home at lunch and change.

David Kutzler said...

I think the glasses pull the whole look together.

I hope this stuff is NIJ III compliant.
