  • Sarah

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

    • Ginger

      What she said. ^^^^^

    • ryenerman

      All the nays.

    • d4divine


    • 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


  • 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.

  • 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


    No. No, no, no.

  • zenobar


  • mjude

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

  • 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)

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

  • willworktomorrow


  • 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


  • lalahartma


  • 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?

  • 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


  • 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


  • 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


  • 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.

  • 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


  • 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


  • 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!

  • 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.

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

  • Jessica O’Connell

    Super big ol’ NAY
