The future of men's fashions?

As you all know, I get an enormous kick out of (cough) "cutting edge" fashion. Here's a Yahoo article entitled I've Seen the Future of Men's Fashion and I'm Afraid. Apparently the Yahoo author is also amused by high fashion.

Here's what Yahoo wrote as an introduction to the fashion show: This week, menswear designers took a giant step for all mankind. Now they might want to take a few baby steps back. The London Men's Collection, a week-long preview of cutting edge collections for the Fall/Winter 2013-2014 season, is supposed to offer a glimpse into the future of menswear. Instead it was a harbinger of a fashion apocalypse. Wooden face barricades, toxic waste jumpsuits, and strapless dresses worn by dour male pixies. Ladies, meet your new stylish man. He's your worst nightmare and he knows it.

Without further ado, please consider adding these fashions to your wardrobe collection. Remember, this is MENSWEAR. All of it.








Nanook of the North, anyone?


Notice what his shirt says: "Please kill me." I wonder if the model wrote that?


I guess oven mitts are now in style.


The Yahoo author was particular taken with the models' glum expressions. Can't blame them.


See, this is what I don't understand about high fashion -- the designers know good and well no one in their right mind would ever wear anything this stooopid. I mean, c'mon -- boards over your head? Giganto oven mitts? Why design it in the first place? What am I missing? My husband speculates that the designers must have a lot of personal problems.

For additional edification, here are a few comments left at the end of this Yahoo presentation:

"My eyes! Oh God, my eyes!"

"My brain just crawled out of my skull and hung itself."

"Don't you hate going to poker night with the guys and finding out one of them is wearing the same minidress as you?"

"OH, NO, NO - PLEASE NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

"There is not enough $$$ in the world to make me wear that #$%$!"

"Perfect for the guy who wants to say "kick my as,s please" without actually saying anything."

"This is why I decided not to go to fashion school. My designs were too normal."


Anyway, folks, this is your chuckle du jour. Now excuse me while I don my Carhartts and mud boots and go feed the cattle.

  1. I seen another article about that fashion show that ones of my friends posted on facebook and got a good laugh. Not only are the fashions ridiculous, but the models don't look thrilled either.

  2. Anyone who thinks that TPTB aren't trying to destroy us needs to take a good long look at these ridiculous faggots, and then consider which tribe is making them wear these outfits

  3. Great piece Patrice. This must really be a delight to the feminst movement as their view of men has now been become effeminant to the extreme. God help us all.

  4. Oh, I dunno. Amused? Google news germany, and then click on International - SPEIGEL ONLINE - News; then type men seem paralyzed in the search box. Hanna Rosin writes a bleak essay on the subject matter of her book, 'The End of Men', which is pertinent to these clothing styles -- and not funny at all. Then read about Japan's herbivore men. And then consider these clothing styles again. Where do men go or turn when there's nowhere to go or turn? Not really many shoot up elementary schools. Men's tears are taboo in most societies. I look at these photos and see men weeping.

  5. I think some of the models look like they are ready to cry.

  6. This had to be a spoof or else it's a gay fashion parade. I will stick my neck out and state any man buying and wearing this stuff has serious mental issues.

  9. The dude wearing that funny blue thing had the same look on his face our dog Casey had when we put his sweater on to take him for the walk...

    The words I'd never be caught dead have never rang more true!

  10. I know!
    These are the things angry divorced women bury their ex-husbands in.

  11. Just so everyone knows, the models are instructed to deadpan and smirk like that. It's part of the "look." Back in the mid 70's when I did a bit of modeling in San Diego we were supposed to look happy, like we were enjoying ourselves and like we loved the clothes, which compared to fashion today were actually pretty nice. I really do believe it is a Satanic inspired conspiracy to confuse the genders and mix-up the proper roles of men and women so as to frustrate God's plan for His children. Oh, another thing, designers purposefully plan their costumes (what else could they be called?) to be way out in left field so that "normal" clothes get pushed a little farther each year. Elements of the designs get incorporated into the ready-to-wear market and people buy it. Thanks for a good laugh today!

  12. I'm not afraid to say it: The emporer has no clothes on!

    Now, if these were COSTUMES in some sort of comedy stage revue, well, then...

    No, they'd still be a sloppy hot mess.

    Knit cuffs? Seriously? That's so...functional.

    Pathetic, just pathetic! Those models are not real men. Even my rooster could make mince meat out of 'em. At least the one with the boards on his head won't be recognized....

  14. I sure hope those models were paid enough. With the outfits that look like they ran into a fence they should have included one with barbed wire around the crotch to show how those guys became steers. Because they had to have just missed jumping over a barbed wire fence to wear those outfits.

  15. And people still wonder why France is made fun of. The global economy went down the toilet, then overflowed and produced this stuff

  16. It has to be a joke.
    And no guy I know would wear a dress, even on Halloween.
    So sad!

  17. I have more testosterone than most of those male model's I'd wager. Thanks for a good chuckle.

  18. I don't think this designer has to worry about being overwhelmed with orders. I have a few spare skids around back of the house... maybe i will make my husband one of these outfits.... hahahahahaha Seriously, i think some people have way tooooooo much time on their hands!!!!!

  19. jeans, t-shirts, sturdy boots, and maybe a hat.... i think that sums up where i stand on 'fashion' :)

  20. This is not amusing, IT'S DISCUSTING!!!

  21. These are the sad and seedy consequences of radical feminism. The men who would wear this stuff even as models are just as oppressed as women forced to behave as sub-humans and wear burkhas. A sad testament to the havoc and hatred Satan has for the differentiation of the sexes and for procreation and the family.

  22. I can't stop laughing! Just looking at the guy in the blue-scoopneck-knit with the over sized knitted bonnet makes me laugh out loud. It's completely ridiculous. The comments from the Yahoo piece are hilarious too. Thanks for the good hearty laugh.
