    • Sarah

      Um, nay. Nay to the naynay. Hell to the nay.

      • Ginger

        What she said. ^^^^^

      • ryenerman

        All the nays.

      • d4divine

        Exactly!

      • anneland

        Except the bullet is okay.

      • Mary Lauer

        Unless you want to be seen as a douchenozzle, then YAY.

    • bookish

      Nay to all of it, but especially to the Sheriff Versace bolo ties. Those are just ridiculous.

      • gabbilevy

        Takes fashion police to a whole ‘nother level.

        • jtabz

          And how hilarious to imagine Versace-wearers serving as said fashion police.

      • kimmeister

        Someone needs to enforce the law in Tackytown, after all.

    • @Biting Panda

      Bwhahahahahaaaaaa! Nay. But bless your hearts for asking. Bolos and gumball dispenser prizes? Oh, Ver-sayce, always keepin’ it classy.

      • marlie

        For real. I can’t stop laughing at this crap.

      • sekushinonyanko

        I overheard some guys on the metro debating buying some Versace stuff and my dislike of Versace overtook me and I was like “if you’re going to spend designer money, please spend it on a designer that will make you look classy and expensive. Versace is so garish and trashy. I can’t. I just can’t.”

        • @Biting Panda

          It was kind of you to share your wisdom.

        • formerlyAnon

          I am laughing at this – I’ve been on the subway in Boston, NYC, DC, Atlanta, LA and London. Maybe I’m riding the wrong lines but I cannot imagine hearing someone giving that kind of fashion advice! (Religious advice, directions, muttered complaints, maybe on a super chatty day under a blue moon when the wind’s from the west, even a compliment about something someone’s wearing, yes. Even more rarely, drunken over-sharing. Critiques of Versace, no.)

        • demidaemon

          Taking the BK philosophy out into the real world! I salute you!

        • GrimyQueenzNigga

          So totally cant. Smh

    • CPK1

      hahaha

    • sablehunter

      I’m pretty sure I had a charm necklace like that back in 1988. Capital N-A-Y.

    • Anna

      Hilariously and irrevocably Nay.

      I very much enjoy the last model though. He seems…smart.

      • StillGary

        Is he wearing a pen? It would be great to have him around in case you need to write something.

        • Anna

          I believe it’s a bullet. But yes it would be great to have him around.

        • AmeliaEve

          I thought he stole it from Joan Holloway in Season 1 of Mad Men. And he is using it just like she does, to bring attention to a shapely chestal area.

    • http://lazycircles.blogspot.com/ Sam Hawk

      Nay to the jewelry. Yay to the model in the bullet necklace.

    • ewes_urn_aim

      Pretty boys, ugly jewelry.

    • VioletFem

      Why does real Versace look like fake Versace?

      • zenobar

        That’s how you know it’s a real Versace.

      • Imasewsure

        Yes that is the essence of the brand unfortunately…

    • kmk05

      Is it just me or do those models look like Elves? POINTY EARS.

    • MilaXX

      NOPE. Who’s gonna wear this mess?

      • marlie

        For real. That giant padlock?! GAWDAWFUL.

        • Aurumgirl

          Padlock?! I was so hoping that was just some kind of handy neck flask, and the lock part was just there to confuse the authorities.

      • formerlyAnon

        Those with more money than sense. As always.

    • RL McGruder

      I know this isn’t necessarily supposed to be about what WE’D do, but these hit me right in my sweet spot, and I’d wear every one of those pieces (except the bolo ties – a bridge too far). Yes, even that hilarious padlock – come to mama!

      Signed, unapologetic huge jewelry wearer.

      • formerlyAnon

        Dude (or Dudette, as applicable),
        Bless you for standing up for your love of the large jewelry in this pile-on of negativity. Kinda made me wanna cheer, even though there’s only two pieces up there I kinda like.

        • RL McGruder

          Dudette, actually, so I *might* get a pass on it. Even if I don’t…eff it, no one died, and I brought myself some joy.

          • demidaemon

            True. I could see these maybe working better for women than for men. Not sure if that is the target audience, but you understand.

    • MaggieMae

      NAY. For young people with too much money and little taste.

    • deelup

      How did they steal all this from my Italian grandmother’s jewelry box?

    • rissa42210

      Yea in the sense that it will sell, nay in the sense that it will be worn in bad taste.

    • IRVN

      Oh God NAY! Tacky tacky tacky

    • Patrick Cleary

      HAHAHAHAHAHA! *deep breath* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

      No. No, no, no.

    • zenobar

      Nay.

    • mjude

      its so tacky, I think I need some of the pieces. but really….NAY

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

      N.A.Y. No, nein, nyet, nicht, non, and NO. Anything that looks like a combo of gangsta and old west is inherently awful.

    • Imasewsure

      What is louder than NAY?!!!!!!! Gotta agree with this reaction as well… HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA (except the one “normal” bolo tie which I can live with)

    • imspinningaround

      Philip Rivers is going to LOVE this collection.

    • PeggyOC

      Can I just register a permanent and definite nay to Versace?

      • formerlyAnon

        Ya know, I keep trying, but every time I have that thought, I see a photo of somebody somewhere in something from Versace that actually looks good on them (and not inappropriately tacky/trashy/over-the-top)

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1180174329 Elizabeth Phillips SC TSu

      Nay. Can’t deal with man jewelry other than wedding ring and nice watch.

    • willworktomorrow

      NAY NAY NAY NAY NAY. NAY.

    • IMNAngryLiberal

      Oh Hell No!

    • Chickadeep

      The ’80s called…they’re finally done doing blow in the bathroom and they want their gaudy bolo ties back.

    • Alyssa

      I want the bullet necklace for myself…I could totally rock that! However, nay to it being on a man.

    • phylora

      NAY.

    • lalahartma

      Nay.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      Not a single turquoise unicorn bolo tie. Boring.

    • LeelaST

      Nay. Like the knotted duo against the tan turtle, otherwise no – especially the bolos – YIKES!

    • Kent Roby

      I’m 100% “yay” on the jewelry, especially the larger ones and the ones stamped “Versace”; ONLY BECAUSE it’s such a convenient way to recognize the really douchey guys before they’ve even uttered a word.

      • KinoEye

        Yes! All douchebags should wear a Versace bolo tie. It would make finding a non-douche so much easier.

        • Anna

          The douchebag version of a scarlet letter.

        • Kent Roby

          Many of them will gravitate towards this jewelry like moths to flames. Trust.

          • demidaemon

            It will certainly highlight the fashionista douches. But what about the non-fashonista ones? I need a douche detecting machine. A douchedar, if you will.

    • crash1212

      Not sure what makes this “mens jewelry”, just looks like jewelry that happens to be on men. Jewelry that I’m not crazy about. So…Nay.

    • Danielle

      That giant lock and chain is calling Kanye’s name.

      • Shawn EH

        It’s the coolest one by far!

    • Pennymac

      Are these guys from the planet Vulcan? Do you suppose the side effect of wearing hideously tacky Versace jewelry is the development of pointy ears?

      Oh, yeah. NAY.

    • TigerLaverada

      LOL and no.

    • Adrianna Grężak

      NAY. Though I’ll gladly accept the last necklace

    • KinoEye

      No, of course. But YAY to that last model. Mmm.

    • StillGary

      I think the models are pouting because they don’t like it either.

      • AmeliaEve

        YES! I was thinking that they all look very stoic, and with good reason.

        “Mom, do I have to wear this? I know Aunt Donatella gave it to me, but I don’t wannnnnna!”

    • sugarkane105

      The amount of cheekbone on display here is insane. Also, NAY obviously.

    • EveEve

      Giant douche magnets!

    • Lyndsey Magrone

      Good lord. Do you even have to ask?

    • http://myriameron.blogspot.com/ Heron

      Are the only choices bolos or charms? Nay.

    • KT

      Well, of all the things I thought Versace would make glamorous, I would have never guessed the bolo tie. So kudos for keeping me on my toes, Donatella, you questionable minx.

    • Neil

      Men’s jewelry, unless it is a watch, is a “nay” by definition. Sorry.

    • Jean Beaton Leavitt

      Love all the jewelry except the gigantic lock and the bolo, clothes are fine.

    • sagecreek

      Hee! Some men can rock some jewelry, some cannot rock any jewelry, and the bolo tie is a risky decision for anyone…are you a hipster or just a redneck? And I say this from the heart of Texas.

    • JauntyJohn

      I wish there was a greater presence for men’s jewelery/accessories in general, and that we would see a more mainstreaming of such things.
      With that said, this should be called the Versace Douchebag Collection, since any one of those pieces could transform even the best, most stylish man into a douchebag. They have so much suck that I don’t even think someone like Alan Cummings could wear one ironically. (Well… mmmaybe the bullet, ironically, but as for the rest… NO.)

      • theblondette

        Agree! I’m a historian, and men used to wear such beautiful, extravagant jewellery. It would be awesome to see jewellery become more mainstream for men – jewellery that is elegant and interesting, not just gross gold medallions and the like. But this collection is not the way to make that happen. They are all disgusting, tacky pieces.

    • RussellH88

      To mix two of my favorite things in the world (puns and Showgirls) I will say “Ver-nay-se” to this jewelry.

    • Trickytrisha

      Versace Does Dallas.

    • ashtangajunkie

      I’m going to nay this business, and based on the models’ facial expressions, I’m going to assume that they agree with me.

    • Nancer

      Whoa. So ridiculous. WTF? Just – no.

    • DesertDweller79

      The bolo ties are absolutely hilarious. They’d be perfect for a cartoon super-glam Western.

    • housefulofboys

      I would run so fast from anyone I saw wearing any of these. Nay.

    • Monabel

      Oh, dear, no. For men’s jewelry, take a look at Steven Webster.

    • marlie

      The epitome of tacky. NAY.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      I kind of like the bolo tie ones, but the others are too much bling.

    • decormaven

      “Lucky Charms! They’re magically delicious!”

    • Cameron Turner

      Nay…. and sidenote… welcome back 80′s

    • uprightcitizen

      Nay for sure. I have more interesting bolos in my closet from the last time they were hot (25 years ago), and the rest of it is stupid. The giant padlock is an absurd play on gay leather bar wear. If you wear that to show you’re “owned”, who keeps the key? Donatella? Anna Wintour?

    • kcaza

      To quote Catherine Malandrino: “No. No, no, no, no.”

    • jw_ny

      NAY!

    • Gatto Nero

      It’s pretty typical Versace “too-too-much in-your-faceness,” though, yes?
      But no.

    • lobsterlen

      A gold bullet necklace is something a 10 year old boy would think is really cool. Other than middle school boys wanting that one necklace not sure it work or any other male on the planet would want that jewelry. So NAY.

    • YoungSally

      Were they all instructed to “Blue Steel” the runway?

    • formerlyAnon

      IF the lower design I can’t see on the domino bolo tie is NOT a Versace brand logo**, I like that one. The next to last necklace that is quite feminine and I think includes pearls, is also kind of nice, if too blingy for my tastes.

      The rest, tacky as shit. ETA: Overall, that’s a Nay.

      **Deeply held prejudice. If you have to shout to the world the brand you wear, that’s nouveau riche of the try-hard, unfun kind. Not the irreverent not-ashamed-of-where-it-came-from kind. And if the designer has to prominently display their logo to where it’s a design element, they don’t believe their work stands on its own merits. Neither of those statements may be true, but it’s one of the judgy feelings I just can’t shake.

      • demidaemon

        You are so, so right. It’s not a judgy feeling. It’s a tried and true correct impression.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      Can’t stand “man jewelry”…this is no exception…NAY

    • jilly_d

      A thousand times no.

    • sekushinonyanko

      Good lord, no!

    • Jacob Bowen

      Ohhhh Versace, Charm Bracelets are one thing, but charm NECKLACES are even too gay for me…I do LOVE the last necklace and own something similar already (albeit from Old Navy).

    • Ashleigh

      yay

    • sekushinonyanko

      I could see Adam Lambert in some of this stuff, but that’s all.

    • sunflower

      This question is a joke, right?

    • Dancer

      Hahahahaaa I don’t see bolo’s coming back…. The only passable one is the bullet, but the huge lock (HAHAHA) or charm necklaces. Just Terrible…. Terribly funny for sure but …. yuck!

    • ShaoLinKitten

      This is a joke post, right?

    • Pterodactyl111

      Are we going to the rodeo later?

    • Tom Markiewicz

      Nay, Tacky as hell. The only one that is a possibility is that last gold pendant, and even then only on very few people.

    • mznormann

      Nay nay nay nay nay!!!

    • jangma

      I could see Kanye or Jay Z in a few pieces. I’m not here for the charm bracelet necklaces and the bolo ties though.

    • somebody blonde

      The bolo ties are icky. Otherwise, I think a flamboyant male dresser could take some of these on. The more conservative should probably stay away though.

    • Fred Vaughn

      Mostly Yea… but they’re NOT for everybody.

    • Tracy_Flick

      I can’t tell, I can’t see past the blindingly hideous print on those shirts. Holy eyeball-searing fug.

      • Qitkat

        I would like this x1000 for ” Holy eyeball-searing fug.”

    • Poeta Paz

      Tasteless!

    • quiltrx

      Is it wrong that I was already in fits of laughter just seeing the term “Versace fall menswear jewelry” before I even opened the post? I knew it was going to be gaudy and for men who THINK they’re sex machines…and I’m not disappointed LMAO.
      I actually snorted at the padlock.

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

      Night at the Roxbury.
      (My boyfriend didn’t mind the bolo ties (with a shirt, for the love of good taste), but he thought everything else was ridiculous.)

    • Danielle West

      This shouldn’t even be a question. Nay.

    • PastryGoddess

      All I can see is cheekbones and lips

    • MannahattaMamma

      Seriously, this entire thing is a satire, right? It’s like fashion as reported by The Onion? Because otherwise there is no excuse.

    • LaSylphide

      It’s a sad day when a 67 year old straight woman looks at pictures of young male models and ends up laughing instead of mourning her lost youth. NAY.

    • Closet Crisis

      HAHAHAHAHAH OMG that lock! HAHAHAHHAHA

    • LaSylphide

      Scrolling through these again and I have to ask: are they wearing fake ears? God, I hope so.

    • sippiambrose

      They all have such beautiful and interesting ears.

    • Aurumgirl

      It’s awful but it certainly has a sense of humour. This whole jewellery collection has brought me metric tonnes of joy!

    • JeanProuvaire

      Oh, that last one is a bullet? I thought it was a slightly more aggressive version of Joan Holloway’s pen necklace. It was the only one I liked.

    • kerryev

      Hilarious.

    • Muhd Sharul Nizam

      yay yay yay

    • Abdullah

      Nay. Too DOUCHY

    • Kimmu

      Bless this tacky shit I love it. I’d wear it.

    • Diego!

      More than nay: NO!

    • allcapsERINN

      LOL at that giant padlock necklace. The guys themselves get a yay though!

    • http://raistlinsama.livejournal.com/ Raistlinsama

      EWWWW! Hell to the no! Nay! Tacky!

    • JaCory Deon

      I just can’t take this seriously, even as costume jewelry. A big NO! LOL, it’s funny though.

    • trisker

      Nays except for the domino shaped bolo — some guys are OK in bolos….otherwise, Versace ads, rapper junk and charm bracelets.

    • demidaemon

      It all reads a little gay cowboy for me, so, if you were going for that look, maybe YAY. But, in general, NAY.

    • MzzPants

      Not feelin’ it.

    • DeidreRobbers

      Hate these, but my dad always wore bolos, so… Soft spot.

    • http://kingderella.tumblr.com/ kingderella

      I’m all for clunky jewellery on men, but those pieces are ugly as fuck.

    • Jessica O’Connell

      Super big ol’ NAY
