Thom Browne

Meaningful? Sure.
Relevant? Of course. And laughing...all the way to the bank.

(Ok, I'll give the Pride of Allentown Pa. credit...if need be... for making the suit a fashion item again. I'll also throw his high-watered ass a bone for slimming down the general silhouette of menswear. But the Pee Wee Herman strategy he manifests to make his mark is...as my mama would say...skimpy)

Just ruined pink and green for me. And made me physically sick. This isn't even "fashion." And it's certainly not art. ~Scott Alexander

Brother, these are SO Meat packing district.
I do love art, yes it IS subjective, but Come on... what the Hell?
Damn.... I need a Bottle of bourbon, some LP vintage 'Stones, and a slew of pin-up nudie girl shots....

They look like L.Pulitzer's legion of bondage superhero avengers.

Misguided, and so utterly wrong on every level.

I'll be the first to say it: GACK. Relevant or not, that (as you would say) shite is gawd awful. Couture or no couture.

Silk Regimental said...

That crap is just laughable. It's not menswear.

ADG said...

Mink80...ummm...I was being sarcastic.

HeavyTweed...Agree.

StankyWhiskey...Mutant Teenage Ninja Fuzzies.

Scale...I'd only add one thing to your recipe for antidotin' this garish display...a NikNik shirt.

Scottie...it'll be ok buddy. Don't throw it all away. Just bury all your pink and green in the back yard. Dig it up mid 2013 and gently integrate it back into your woe-drobe.

Methinks Mr Browne "designed" these after a wild night at some Mexican eatery, where he must have consumed too many pink margaritas and too much guacamole. As he staggered home, he stopped off and bought a couple of comic books. He put them under his pillow. The next morning, this collection "just came out". What was he thinking? Who on EARTH would wear black shoes with those colors?

The man has imagination, I'll give him that.

I feel like punching someone.

Those models are either completely brain dead or robots. No one could wear that, walk and keep a straight face all at the same time.

Thank God one legged suit pants are back! Bike messengers all over the world are rejoicing.

Thank you, Anonymous, for pointing out what the true atrocity was: black shoes. ;)

I like your osmosis theory.

It looks to me like a cross between Hellraiser, Pulp Fiction and Willy Wonka, what a waste of material.

The overstuffed models remind me of The Goons from Popeye. I hated those morning cartoons on WTBS. The others are the Hilfigers behind closed doors? I'll take a stab that the new thing will be having your adult diapers peeking out from the waistband.

Mr. Browne must live in some sort of weird preppy, sado-masochistic fantasy world.....this is so wrong in so many ways.....a go to hell nightmare.

I feel sick... gonna puke...

Young Fogey said...

Ummmmmmmm... what IS all that?

Where's the "delete" button for my brain? I need to expunge that awfulitude ASAP.
