• nannypoo

    I don’t get it.

    • StellaZafella

      I think it’s a “British” thing…but some of it’s kinda funny, to me.

      • queen b*tch

        I’m a British thing and I don’t get it… you’d never see black lipstick on the cricket pitch!!

    • DilettanteDeconstructed

      I don’t want it.

      • carlaaxtman

        WHAT? Oven mitt and bath towel kilts aren’t your thing?

    • drdarke

      I think they’re a high-fashion version of Monty Python’s Gumbys, @nannypoo ….

    • Jessica O’Connell

      Same… I get that it’s British, but with the angry faces, weird lipstick, and battle stances, I feel like they are a preview of an upcoming Doctor Who villain more than anything else. The newest upgrade of the Cybermen, perhaps?

  • crash1212

    Oh dear. I guess for all your Cricket playing needs? Also…how much blueberry scones does one need to eat to end up with such lips?

  • Imasewsure

    The first look is fricking adorable… the rest is Clockwork Orange Wimbledon (aka cray cray)

    • veleri

      so I’m not the only one who is getting psychovibes. good.

  • StellaZafella

    The knee-length sweaters might be fun…Dressed down with nice jeans and tennies…in a different color than white…I just see stains waiting to happen with sometning like that.

  • Lady Orwellian

    Wait. Are they actually wearing different outfits?

    • random_poster

      Exactly what I thought! It looks like the pictures were copied and re-pasted row after row. On top of that, there’s a lot of Boys from Brazil going on.

      • Lady Orwellian

        Heh. Agreed.

  • Kikishua

    “Why the **** did I agree to wear this” silently shouted from every picture…

    • http://piblet.tumblr.com/ Anastasia

      “they’re not paying me enough for wearing this…”

  • majorbedhead

    It looks like they’ve all been eating the Ashes at Lords.

    • Excellence_and_Elegance

      Looks like they’ve been sucking off chimneysweeps.

      • demidaemon

        If their are naked chimney sweeps still working, I feel for them. Talk about crotch abrasions…

  • Blair Sylvester

    does the idiom shit eating grin not translate well? because that is the only thing i can think to explain the models lipstick

    • Lady Orwellian

      I’m sure it’s supposed to “say something about something in the world of men’s fashion in today’s society” blah freakin’ dah – however it just looks like a bunch of guys went to Hot Topic in Cricket gear. I’m sure if explained to me I’d nod, roll my eyes inwardly, and forget about it 5 seconds later. Oy.

  • joanna dash

    Off with their heads!

  • Zorkness

    All they need are some unicorns to improve these looks…

  • kimmeister

    Unconventional materials challenge – make outfits out of fencing uniforms and straitjackets (using the Abercombie & Fitch notions wall). Now go!

  • Rand Ortega

    Thom Browne & his lipstick lovin’ male models. The British Cricket Team is all over this. Lipstick included.

  • clairellis

    WTF.

  • boweryboy

    My first thought was “warmed over Thom Browne” which is funny because after doing some research I discovered he’s the designer for this label.

    • Denise Alden

      I has a sad about Thom Browne now.

  • norseofcourse

    Nightmare inducing. They’re zombie cricket players and they’re hungry for brains!

  • Danielle L

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  • MilaXX

    I can’t stop laughing at the black lipstick long enough to look at the clothes.

    • veleri

      yeah. please may this not become a trend.

  • hughman

    Rupaul’s Oven Mitt.

    • Little_Olive

      You rock, sir

  • appliquer

    Yikes!

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    Grimace loves a swallower.

    • kimbalala

      thanks for the guffaw!

    • demidaemon

      So, so wrong, and I love it.

  • Scot Meacham Wood

    You know – I’m fairly intrigued by the whole collection. No, clearly, I wouldn’t wear complete outfits – but, I could easily cheery-pick through here and find some amazing things for my next Spring’s wardrobe. Some great coats. Some AMAZING sweaters. And I’m loving that white leather briefcase on the opening model. – And remember – this is a fashion “SHOW.” I don’t think anyone is expecting these looks to go directly from runway to street wear. but, I LOVE that Thom Browne is really pushing the boundaries of men’s fashion far beyond the traditional sportswear mode.

    • NoveltyRocker

      I’d be really excited about a few of those jackets or coats in my closet. Loving the springboard off of uppity, old money cricket-wear.

    • demidaemon

      I am impressed by your ability to suss out anything wearable for this collection. I can’t get past the black lipstick or the skirts. I understand your point about it being a “SHOW,” but it also has to sell. If I was a buyer, I’m not sure I would give this the time of day or want to deal with the designer behind it.

  • Anniebet

    Just no.

    You know what, there are so many of these Whiteboard posts that I’d love to see TLo go to town on. This one would be hilarious.

  • Glam Dixie

    Those models look soooo pissed.

  • http://piblet.tumblr.com/ Anastasia

    This looks like an (attractive) all-male nurse squad rebelled and played hooky at Hot Topic and the nearest mini-golf course.
    My eyes.

  • IamNOToneofyourFANS

    What exactly is the inspiration for this collection? I’m thinking cricket match between the residents of two Edwardian lunatic asylums? You can’t say that’s derivative, I suppose.

  • http://angrynerdgirl.net/ Jessi03

    BAHAHAHAHA! Moncler Gamme Bleu: for when you want to go fencing while simultaneously playing tennis and rugby. We have all your needs covered.

  • guest2visits

    Is it me or are these guys sweating a little behind their deathly-horrid black lips? I bet they feel kinda silly.
    The white cable knits and padded drawers are blinding me.

  • Kristin McNamara

    REE. DICK. YOU. LUSS.

  • sekushinonyanko

    Men in black, red and white with lipstick and skirts. Where have we seen that? Oh that’s right! Like two weeks ago from Thom Browne. So all that’s left for menswear is ladyclothes? Well could they at least be made of sexier fabrics than insulation?

  • madscntst

    The models all look pissed. But then again, if I had to don black lipstick and wear those stupid outfits, I’d look pissed, too.

    • Fordzo

      I think they are pissed because that black sharpie, not lipstick.

  • frannyprof

    If you’re a cricket-playing zombie, then this is the look for you.

  • makeityourself

    I thought this was Sausage Friday.

  • lesmaha

    no.

  • jmorino08

    This is amazing in its ridiculousness!

  • Belvane

    I cannot stop laughing. I want to see John Cleese in these outfits.

    • quiltrx

      If the runway had been a Python reunion, this collection might actually sell a few pieces!

  • conniemd

    So much to say, so little time. I actually like the colors, but the buckling and padded materials indelibly puts the image of straight jacket in my mind. The middle one in the last row with the buckles in front would be pure straight jacket if the arms were crossed.

  • sekushinonyanko

    This show is practically a wall of bitchface. See, I can say nice things about ugly menswear!

  • Tabby_abby

    The thumbnail made me think of the Hunger Games and the capital citizens. And that isn’t a compliment.

  • ankali

    Okay, I LOL’d. Like, a lot. The little tiny baby-tee sweaters are my favorite for some reason.

  • Daenyx

    … the fuck?

  • Qitkat

    Anyone up for a game of quidditch?

  • bertkeeter

    Has Thom Browne been moonlighting?

  • kategs

    I am so ranty tonight, I know but come on! This is beyond ludicrous.

  • marlie

    I just can’t with this bunch.

  • http://onionjam.tumblr.com SkipperJane

    It’s like the Fifth Doctor and Marilyn Manson had a love child.

    But whither the stick of celery?

  • quiltrx

    They’re just effing with us, right?
    I will take one of those bags, though…in black or dark purple please. White is a disaster looking for an ink pen.

  • padma sallah

    These feel like really fancy fencing outfits.

  • jangma

    Ichiban: lipstick for men!

  • demidaemon

    Is this a joke? Because this really is hitting the bottom of the barrel for menswear this season, and I thought we’d already reached that point. I want to cry tears of shame for these poor models.

  • belfebe

    Editorial, yet hilarious.

  • MoHub

    It’s Doctor number 6 meets Pee Wee Herman.

  • Fordzo

    Everyone’s calling them ‘skirts’, but I think we are looking at aprons.

  • Charles

    I know it’s for the runway but those looks are overstyled to the point that classically pretty and very preppy clothes look garish. Someone should be led aside and talked out of ever doing this type of thing again.

  • YoungSally

    Puhleeze. And the black lips look like misplaced Groucho staches

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Summertime Samurai Tennis Club

  • snarkykitten

    They’re all wearing the same thing. Except for that poor bloke @ the end, who appears to be wearing EVERYTHING

  • anotherkate

    Cricket yawn.

  • tmchale

    I just feel for those models.

  • Catiline

    What in the Michelin Man hell…

  • veleri

    this reminds me of the psychopaths in the movie “funny games”.

  • veleri

    so many layers, like onions. and they make me cry, like onions.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    HA! HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAAHHAA!

    Hilarious. So hiddy.

    I just can’t get past the black lips.

  • nyazgirl

    No.

  • altissima

    Ahahahaha!

  • Sushy Gooroo

    Those pictures look like stills from a silent movie of the 1920′s that was supposed to be really funny but wasn’t.

  • Aaminah Khan

    Combination of cricket whites and fencing gear. Who’da thunk it?

  • http://stylishsass.blogspot.com/ Terri Smith

    I just feel bad for male models now.

  • macwell

    Why. Can’t. Menswear Designers. Just. Show. The. Clothes?!!! I can’t with any of it. I understand a fashion show should have a theatric element, but when you are loosing the clothes in your presentation….?

  • Puckndc

    Devo its the British Isles.

  • Richard

    I could definetly use the pants with the built in knee pads for when I start up my career as a high end “escort.”

  • AnnPopovic

    Hate every single thing here except the 5th thing, that coat with the stripeys. Black lipstick with all that white doesn’t look trendy it looks like there was poison in the punch bowl and all that cricket/polo crap wasn’t cute WITHOUT the padding. It’s a no-go here for me.

  • portlandmermaid

    We need Jeeves to administer a group slap.

  • Pudgy Possum

    You know what I learned today? Lipstick doesn’t go with beards.

  • MsOlympia

    So very white…

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      and yet so very black.

  • Ashleigh

    after the first couple rows….scroll scroll scroll

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

      It feels like I’m caught in a loop.

  • PrunellaV

    They look like little boys who got caught eating coal.

  • pdquick

    I was going to go out today, but I couldn’t find my strap-on quilt or my black lipstick. So I just sat home and let my hair go any which way like Johnny Depp.
