    • Shawn EH

      How did they find all these identical boys?

      • Guest

        Profiling.

      • alyce1213

        Profiling?

      • KateShouldBeWorking

        The only things whiter than this show are the underpants.

      • gabbilevy

        Boys being the operative term?

      • barbarienne

        Bulk sale at Costco?

    • MilaXX

      pretty boys in pretty clothes.

      • NinaBoo

        I thought the first pic was a vacation shot from TLo’s vacation…

      • Kristin McNamara

        Except… I don’t understand how the tightie whities in the first shot and the second-to-last shot are high fashion…? By no means am I complaining that they were included in this blog post, I’m just curious how/why that counts as “fashion” ;)

        • BuffaloBarbara

          Yeah, right there with you. Very pretty gentlemen up there, and I sure don’t mind looking at them, but what on earth is the designer selling here? Is it a men’s lingerie line? :genuinely confused:

        • MilaXX

          I think because they fit into the D2 style of clothing; young, skinny twinks, they work with the overall runway show.

    • crash1212

      This collection is not pleasing to my eye and I can hardly wait until the hipster-meant-to-look-too-small phase of menswear is over. Having said that, model in second triple panel far right may carry on. Those are some legs right there.

    • Rand Ortega

      This is another prime example the Caten twins really ‘get’ their target demo.

    • Emily Dagger

      There are two boys here wearing nothing but necklaces and Very Small White Drawers. Is there something about these particular Very Small White Drawers that makes them couture? I shall need enlarged copies of these photographs, for closer study.

      • demidaemon

        It’s not couture, just menswear. Still, I understand your point. ;)

    • http://thishotoldbroad.blogspot.com/ Sara Leigh Merrey

      Dumpy, lumpy, disheviled mess for the most part, either stupidly baggy or ridiculously small. Very few of these look remotely wearable.

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

        Really? Other than the leather shorts I was thinking that most of these looks were very wearable, if not exactly innovative.

        • http://thishotoldbroad.blogspot.com/ Sara Leigh Merrey

          The high-waters, baggy-legged, rumpled things just don’t do it for me or the men I know. Then again, I’m old. :)

    • sekushinonyanko

      I think that at least this stuff does look like menswear. We might giggle a bit if we saw males in the real world wearing any of this stuff all together, but taken as pieces I could see this looking cool on young boystars.

    • everest19

      No.

    • nannypoo

      Some of these pieces would be wearable. Well, maybe not the grass skirt. Sending a guy down the runway in nothing but his underpants seems like an odd choice.

      • random_poster

        I think the grass skirt is supposed to represent the gown most designers send out at the end of the show.

        • nannypoo

          Oh, that makes sense. He still looks goofy, but it makes sense.

    • Frank_821

      I don’t know. Luckily I don’t have to worry if I can pull these off. Just if I can pull these off the models :P

      I will give the twins points for a theatrical stage

    • Terri Ellis

      In row 8, the one guy without glasses. Is that Ryan Lochte the Olympic swimmer? Because I think this collection might be just right for him. The opening shot made me laugh, so thanks for that TLo.

      • Rand Ortega

        Not douchey enough to be RL. LOL!

      • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

        I am not sure Ryan would be capable of making a left turn. Plus, do you honesty believe they wouldn’t have him in the bikini? Could you imagine the internet backlash?

    • Coolekat

      I like it.

    • bertkeeter

      No Comment!

    • majorbedhead

      It all just screams Trying Too Hard.

    • StellaZafella

      Minor quibble: The clothes look worn and comfortable…but the hats and shoes look like afterthoughts.

      • kaysarasara

        I had one of those, too!

    • SophiaPehawkins

      The guy in the fifth column, third picture, looks like a more muscular Stephen Colbert. I would hit it so hard.

    • homofascist

      Yay! A men’s collection where I can actually see myself wearing some of the pieces. It is a miracle! And that model in his underwear in the bottom row – YOWZA. I would like to wear that too.

    • Rand Ortega

      Runway Zookeeper, row 4, pic 3, made me laugh out loud.

      • Qitkat

        And row 6, middle, Breaking Amish Goes To The City, has a bird on his shoulder!

        • Rand Ortega

          Fear not, Jebediah. Thou has birdseed in thy sparkly backpack.

    • Qitkat

      It’s certainly been an *interesting* Spring 2014 for menswear.

      Sexy=tightie whities. Hmm, let me think about that. NO.

      • demidaemon

        For me, it depends on who is wearing them and the cut. Like all clothes. Here, though, definitely sexy.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Right side, second down — if it’s cold enough for a sweater, maybe you should put on some pants. [/Grandma voice]

      Some of this actually looks okay (an oddity in men’s fashion shows). I especially like the little explorer number, like Indiana Jones got called away for an adventure in the middle of his lecture. But I really, honestly, not in an old-lady-doesn’t-like-it way… don’t get why so many of them are wandering down the runway in their underwear. As fashion, tighty-whities aren’t exactly innovative or… well, clothes.

    • alyce1213

      It’s a Brad Brad World, this DSquared2 show.
      I wonder how the one model get away with ditching the glasses?
      Sending models down the runway in underpants and a necklace is just . . . well, embarrassing. And the jungle scenario looks cheap and ridiculous.

      • MilaXX

        Why? Victoria’s Secret has been sending women doe the runway in underwear and heels forever.

        • alyce1213

          Context, I suppose.

        • StellaZafella

          If these guys were in heels…

          • formerlyAnon

            I would pay good money to watch the auditions where they made sure the guys chosen could *walk* the runway in heels. Unlike Excessively Strong Jaws, you can’t choose that from portfolios.

    • random_poster

      There are some pretty cool pieces in this, but certainly not everything. I wonder if real-world men will ever embrace the capri pant.

      • MilaXX

        many men wear the manpri. In fact I think most prefer that over the short short

        • Aurumgirl

          Not sure that either is an improvement over the other.

      • StellaZafella

        They used to be called “bongos” by the surfers in my day…I called them Clam Diggers and had a pair in faded blue (from salt water) with little black and white strips on the side seam.

    • Daenyx

      What the designer banana hammock? o.O

    • vitaminC

      I can only guess that Dsquared has spent the last few seasons cloning Harry Hamlin. That would explain the models AND the lab coats.

      You’re welcome.

    • formerlyAnon

      Dear god, that was a laugh of pure entertainment! Having thoroughly enjoyed buff gym rats with Entirely Too Much Strong Jaw wearing Clark Kent glasses in every silly ensemble one could assemble from basically wearable pieces, I now must go back and try to consider the clothing without [too much] giggling.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      Is it weird that I really want a wicker patterned tuxedo for myself? I feel like it would make a splash at the couple of southern weddings I’m going to this fall while still being appropriately New York. Coiff the hair into a spikey pixie version of an updo, wear some chunky, appropriately tropical statement jewelry (I’m thinking a lot of colorful palm ivory because I love that stuff), and generally look fab.

      • formerlyAnon

        I think it sounds very Charleston boho. (Or maybe I mean Savannah.)

        • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

          Maybe I can screenprint such a pattern on a discount suit, now that I think about it…

    • shawna

      Dayum! 3rd row middle. Come to mama.

    • Jake Donohoe

      I have a warm fuzzy feeling. Wait, they were wearing clothes?

    • Cameron Turner

      Dang!

    • conniemd

      I asked this on one of the other menswear 2014 spring collections. I remember the Fall 2013 collections being suits and relatively standard. As a newbie to this site, is there something different about spring versus fall collections or have the men’s 2014 spring collections jumped the shark? They appear more about themes and art, editorial looks than wearable clothes I would see on any male movie star except Johnny Depp. Clearly this one is jungle theme.

    • hughman

      Bruce Weber, early 90s. The Face magazine. Pet Shop Boys videos. It’s been done. And better when it was fresh and off. This isn’t designing, it’s retread styling.

    • Anniebet

      So, are those tighty whities or swimwear? The rest is interesting and uh, interesting?

      • sleepycat

        underwear, I thought it was swimwear too

    • j_anson

      I sincerely hope men will wear this collection. It’s always good when the douchebags advertise their status.

    • Louise Bryan

      Capri length looks silly on guys. Have difficulty expressing my distaste for socks with shorts.

    • ankali

      The label is not doing its clothes any favors by sending so many half-naked men down the runway. I really resented the rows of entirely be-shirted models.

    • altalinda

      The Professor finally found some friends.

    • Jeremiah Capacillo

      So did they use Brad Goreski as their collection peg?

    • joything

      For a moment there I wondered if it was a dream sequence from “A Single Man,” with all those professorial glasses on pretty men … then I remembered this is Dsquared, not Tom Ford. Still, A Single Woman can imagine.

    • marlie

      There are a few interesting pieces scattered in with a lot of gratuitous skin/nakedness. Because every guy wears a poncho over a pair of briefs.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      I lost it with the guy in the parka/red leopard print bikini/combat boots. The look on his face says it better than I can.

      • formerlyAnon

        Ha. I had many laughs, but I have to admit that guy’s legs were all I saw in that one. (Lanky endurance athlete build – yum, even if this one gets his look at the gym.)

    • Victor Beiramar Diniz

      collection title: “beefcake-nerd-boys go camping… in maui”

    • lobsterlen

      This is what my castaway island would look like.

    • somebody blonde

      Can I just say that I hate the return of the distressed jean? It looked sloppy the first time around…

    • Deedles

      I think I will embarrass the crap out of my 18-year-old son and ask him his thoughts on the collection…

      • formerlyAnon

        Strong work. You are a mother to be honored and respected.

    • formerlyAnon

      “The story seemed to be that the guys in underwear were leading the others around their paradisical home.”

      SO much chortling.

    • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

      Are they all channeling Clark Kent with those glasses?

    • AmeliaEve

      Lord of the 4-button Flies.

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      LOLOLOLOLOLOL Remember those little dioramas from fifth grade Camp Fire Girl Camp that you made in a clear bowl or big jar? With moss? And little trees? And little teeny men wearing panties and glasses? And a waterfall?

    • maggiemaybe

      Sausage Friday on a Monday? It’s like Christmas in April!

    • Sushy Gooroo

      LOLsquared.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      Book of Mormon on Parade. Post-Colonialism, the Collection. Mystery Date: Poindexter Takes Over the World.

      The grass skirt is particularly amusing. And the look on the face of the poor thing in the second row in the tiny red undies? Misery in Glasses, right there.

    • jangma

      Oh wow. It wasn’t until I read the comments that I realized these weren’t of the same three models over and over again.

    • Anplica Fiore

      I am strangely in love with the cane jacket.
