    • Feathers McGraw

      I have started saving for number 13 ever since I saw it on Twitter a week ago. MUST HAVE IT! Also, I want the models hair.

      • RL McGruder

        Not mad at you! I also love all of the printed pants!

      • MissAmynae

        I need that bomber jacket like yesterday.

        Cool and fun collection.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      I don’t think I can handle any more menswear fuckery this week.

      • Darren Nesbitt

        I’ll wear a billion colors in a casual sweatshirt or maybe even a bomber jacket but I will not wear a suit splattered with that much color.

      • lecoffeeaddict

        Amen.

      • Raspberry2012

        I’m with you. I just don’t even remotely like any of this.

      • TAGinMO

        When I got to the last picture I realized I had been grimacing the entire time. Not a good sign.

        • kimmeister

          Just try to relax your facial muscles now.

    • housefulofboys

      Just when I think the menswear collections can’t get any worse…they get worse.

      • demidaemon

        I think this is better actually. It is’t amazing, but better.

    • Kristi Mitchell

      Judging by how all those clothes fit, I REALLY hope the over sized ‘Look ma I’m wearing daddy’s suit’ trend isn’t coming back again . . .

      • QuietHarper

        Amen sister. From your mouth to the designer’s collective ears.

    • Lori

      This collection is odd, often bordering on WTF?, and at the same time kind of boring. That seems like it shouldn’t be possible. There are a few good pieces, but as a collection I am not feeling it.

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        Totally agree.

      • evave2

        I think every single model is styled (and I cannot tell if any are really cute or just made to look like) like a drug addict passed out in an alley. So the shots have no “curb appeal” for me.

        I cannot see WHO would wear this and/or WHERE they would be going.

        So yeah, Lori, WTF.

    • throwslikeagirl

      Love the coats. Alan Cumming, and few others, could rock the suits.

      • Kitten Mittons

        I like this collection much more than others we’ve seen this week.

        • demidaemon

          Agreed.

    • Noah

      I don’t like many of the cuts here; I wish they were more in McQueen’s usual, more structural/architectural wheelhouse. Love the fabrics and patterns, though.

      • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

        I had to double check, wondering if this were Thom Browne at his usual nonsense.

    • TheDivineMissAnn

      Okay, what’s up with the clown sized shoes? Or is it just me?

      • schadenfreudelicious

        not just you…

      • Bad Idea Jeans

        No, it is not just you. I am hoping that the proportions of the shoes just look weird due to photographic angles and the teensy weensy toothpick legs of the models, and wouldn’t look so weird on an average-sized body.

        • TheDivineMissAnn

          I was wondering if that was it. I did notice the all white shoes did not look nearly as gargantuan as the bi colored oxfords.

      • barbarienne

        It’s the soles being so much larger than the uppers. The male version of the women’s hoof shoes.

      • CT14

        Seriously.

        It’s not just you. I could put up with some of those suits, but never those clown shoes.

    • gabbilevy

      Im just glad it’s not covered in pop art versions of MCQEEN!

    • Bridget Smith

      I have mad love for that black suit jacket with the swoop of tweed cutting through it, but the rest are visually arresting without being interesting, if that makes sense. It all starts to look the same after a while. And I’m not feeling the oversized fits.

    • YoungSally

      Those clown-sized black shoes are not doing any favors for the calf-challenged models

    • http://onionjam.tumblr.com SkipperJane

      The top few look like Brazil has started early on their Olympics volunteer uniforms.

      • Wink

        The first four look like something the athletes would wear during the Opening Ceremony’s parade of nations.

    • EveEve

      When pictured as womens wear, I enjoy almost all of it. Mens wear not so much. I want the black blazer with leather over-vest, the red coat, and the knee-length white coat with the black and red swirls.

    • Capt. Renault

      I can’t wear that, but I appreciate the guy who can.

    • NMMagpie

      Low budg science fiction movie wardrobe. The big shoes on those skinny bods just look out of proportion.

      And that first model looks positively frail. Totally threw me off.

      • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

        ALL the clothes look preposterously out of proportion on these models.

        • Lower L

          Some of these ensembles make them hippy in a very strange way.

    • Chris

      Why must all the male models look like Orin, April’s creepy friend on “Parks And Recreation’?

    • annrr

      The shoes would be cool if they were so clownishly big.

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

      Well, this seems like a reasonable pitch to design the Team GB uniforms for the next Olympics.

    • Danielle

      The hair makes me think of that emo/goth character on South Park who is constantly flicking his head to get his hair out of his eyes.

      • marlie

        The hair is awful.

      • Glam Dixie

        Pete!

      • Grumpy Girl

        I kept worrying about the tragic accident that caused them all to lose their right eyes (except for the one lefty), and how they are covering their empty socket with hair so people won’t stare.

    • Glam Dixie

      Man capris. Seriously. They have man capris. That is all that needs to be said.

      • doodley

        Man capris with tights.

        • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

          Man capris with tights and clown shoes.

          • doodley

            Shiny, shiny tights and clown shoes.

          • conniemd

            This says it all. I was peering closely at my monitor not sure I was seeing what I was seeing.

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

          Man capris with tights reads “bicycle courier” to me!

      • Jessica Freeman

        Men in Europe have been wearing capris for quite some time. These look more like the length of those hideous golfing pants.

      • smayper

        It’s like they sat down and said, “How can we make clothes for men that look just as stupid and unwearable as much of the high-end fashion for women? Because, you know, we don’t want to be sexist.” Not as bad as Moschino, but that one was enough to make me wonder if it was actually a spoof done by the Onion.

        • Ginmaru

          At least the Moschino models look healthy. These young men look so painfully thin that the clothes swirl around them in a faint breeze. It is hard to look at the clothes sometimes because the bodies under them worry me. I want to take them home and feed them all.

          That being said, I love the idea of color and design in men’s clothes and want to see more of it. But I admit to having a hard time imagining them on the streets of a smallish Southern town. Men’s capris down here are cut off jeans that hang off your butt.

      • demidaemon

        I thought they were jodhpurs. Whatever, they are, me no like.

    • MilaXX

      da’ hell?

    • formerlyAnon

      Short shelf life on most of these. What I do like is the swirl design in two suiting fabrics. I LOVE the jacket in photo # 11, it has the right balance to please my eye.

      While I am a proponent of loose slacks from hip down, these are a bit much. And plus fours/knickers are just not going to be a thing, not anywhere I go. Ditto formal capris for men.

      • demidaemon

        I think if we broke up a lot of these pieces, they actually wouldn’t be as weird, especially as casual wear, unlike the past two collections, which were pretty much unsalvageable.

    • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

      Clown shoes! What I’ve always wanted to see on the runway

    • Anna

      White turtlenecks with primary colour graphic prints will always read as ’80s ski/sportswear to me.

      I like some of the prints, but the proportions and shoes are silly.

      • demidaemon

        Seems like 80s is the new trend in menswear.

    • Kathy

      Why do so many of these collections for men remind me of Fester (Christopher Lloyd) in Addams Family Values, the way Debbie (Joan Cusack) “styled” him?

    • QuietHarper

      Well, I guess it’s not as cracked out as yesterday’s. At least there is some technical excellence in the construction going on here — I can admire the fact that those suits are still laying more or less correctly, even though they are pieced within an inch of their lives. And when I squint, I can kinda see what was intended — but dang, it hurts to have to squint. A couple of the coats are nice, and if some of the suits hadn’t had all that stuff cut into them, they might actually be nice suits. A great big NO to the cropped suit pants and the clown shoes — how could they not see that? Giggling is probably not the reaction they were going for here.

      And while I’m on the rant — what is it with designers and the high-water pants? In this case, they didn’t even put interesting socks with them. I just don’t get it. /rant

    • lynnlee

      I don’t get the clown sized shoes.

    • marlie

      Interesting. I like it, but I doubt we’re going to see any of this on the red carpet except possibly on SWINTON. Some of these would make really outstanding editorials, though.

      • KinoEye

        I can maybe, just maybe see that gorgeous leather jacket with the white and red accents on a more adventurous boystar. But that’s about it.

    • barbarienne

      Someone was inspired by the decor at an aquarium.

      I hate every single pair of shoes here. The sole being wider than the upper is a men’s shoe trend on par with with hoof-toed women’s shoes.

    • uprightcitizen

      At least the Moschino models looked masculine in the clothes. This is borderline drag by way of invading the respective closets of Pee Wee Herman and Cruella DeVille. Those black shoes with the white swath on them are cool, though.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

      Oh jeez. That black “track suit” with the single gray swoop on the front? “This is the holy flame of my crotch! Worship it!”

    • Jessica Freeman

      I don’t hate most of this…which is good. I think. The normal cut suits with the graphics are pretty good. Alan Cummings needs them.

    • mjude

      at first I thought one of the models had really big feet but then I noticed the dress shoes were all huge. LOL

    • FibonacciSequins

      Little Boy Playing Dress Up.

    • boweryboy

      I love the black and red shoes. That’s it.

    • Heather

      I like a lot of the design work and color, but the fit is confusing to me. Why is everything so giant? I’m not a fan.

    • Sherrie

      My eyes are twitching. These make my eyes twitch. Ugh. And what is going on with the soles of the shoes being about a inch bigger than the shoes. Is this a thing? The models look like they have duck feet.

    • RescueMe23

      All I could see were big clown shoes. Those models have some seriously large feet! :-)

    • theblondette

      Why.

    • Coolekat

      After Khal Drogo these models may as well go home. who cares?

    • RedRaven617

      How did these guys not trip over their own feet?

    • Imasewsure

      Dude looks like a lady…. ship the whole collection off to Tilda… she will know what to do with it

    • Dave Hime

      Drunk Bieber Hair. Blech.

    • BlairBear

      Trying too hard

    • ChelseaNH

      Their feet look bigger than their heads.

      • http://www.chifleschips.com Stefanie Argudo Mackenzie

        Really…I’m thinking pontoons or snowshoes. Hate the hair.

    • Maine1ac

      Crazeballs. Mostly the shoes and the capri pants. The crotches of some of those pants. And lots of other things.

    • http://www.lippsisters.com/ Deborah Lipp

      I don’t even care if it’s wearable because it’s So. Fucking. Beautiful.

      • suzq

        My goofy post above aside…. I’m very glad to see designers play with new laser cutting technologies. It’s clear that Sarah Burton and her team are pushing the graphic envelope on the basic suit. It’s hard to tell if the fit is poor of if she is intentionally trying to play with proportions. I’m going to guess the latter because some of the jackets and pants are impeccable and on all of them, the construction is quite complex.

        • Gatto Nero

          I’m sure the proportions are intentional. And I think the mixing of patterns particularly (more so even than the mixing of colors) in this almost calligraphy paintbrush style is pretty groundbreaking and interesting. It would take a particular type of man to pull this off successfully, though. But I’d love to see someone like Alan Cumming try.

    • Joanna

      So, is poorly tailored pants going to be a “thing” this year? If so, I can’t get behind it. Otherwise, I am completely unimpressed – oversized men’s wear basics with a graphic swoop. Must have run out of ideas.

    • suzq

      Et tu, Sarah Burton??? Attention TLO: Too long pants are now a thing!

      In other news, the Swedish Olympic team is on the line. They would like the first three suits. Thank you very much!

    • JulieTy

      Alan Cumming for the win!!

    • Vegas Girl

      They made their models look like zombies… In tights of some sort… On purpose? I don’t understand.

    • Shawn EH

      Tragic and unwearable.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      I really don’t like any of the sausage here.

    • Daenyx

      I … kind of love it, except the shapes are making me cringe. Waaaay too baggy.

    • jwrdwr

      Twink city. NO thanks.

    • Ashleigh

      20% WOW, 80% ew

    • Henry Maler

      There’s some really pretty coats here but most of the stuff is weird but not weird enough to be fabulous if you know what I mean. Plus the Mickey Mouse shoes are stupid.

    • Denise Rambo

      HOLY CRIPE! WHAT is going on with the menswear designers these days?

    • Lily

      Who is the target audience here? A clown college?

    • http://melaniesuzanne.blogspot.com/ Melanie Suzanne

      Yawn.

    • Frank_821

      Personally those capris remind me more of breeches

      still whacked out. some interesting patterns but that’s it

    • jilly_d

      Does no one care about fit anymore?? *In angry Walter Sobchak voice* AM I THE ONLY ONE AROUND HERE WHO GIVES A FUCK ABOUT THE RULES???

    • sienna elm

      I see Bowie in the long black w/sparkles waistcoat.

    • Tami from Seattle

      I didn’t realize Fluevog had a Spring 2015 Clown Snowshoe line.

    • mmebam

      Hi-waters are the bane of my existence.

    • somebody blonde

      Interesting clothes, HORRIBLE SHOES.

    • Mothra

      An odd combo of football kits and the Danish National Curling Team pants. Which isn’t to say that I don’t like it, but you can’t look at those first few looks and not think they look like footie kits.

    • LJCdoc

      Interesting enough that I wish they were women’s clothes, or that my hubby would ever actually wear something like this so I could steal them from him.

    • Innuendo

      The styling and clown shoes aren’t my thing, but I like quite a few of the suits. They have a Calder-esque vibe.

    • Mr. J.

      Too many of these look like graphics for airplanes, or for Adidas….all black I like a lot.

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

      Do they have a marketing agreement with Nike? Because I see “swoosh” all over these. Another less-than-stellar menswear collection, although I’m not sure anyone could sink lower than Moschino’s from yesterday.

    • Tracy_Flick

      So…. what ever happens to menswear collections? You never see anything anyone would actually wear. With the women’s even the crazy stuff can be tweaked and toned down for retail and still stand out from the department-store crowd. But given what you actually see men wearing – from random dude on the street to A-list red carpet – none of it is even close to this stuff. Are the collections just randomness intended to get publicity to sell the exact same ties and belts as the next collection? Or are there some guys in Gstaad or Johannesburg or somewhere who actually buy and wear this stuff?

    • http://www.argonauticos.blogspot.com/ jason

      It’s like Frankenstein goes a go go on Carnaby Street.
      Do not like.

    • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

      A bid to outfit Sweden for the next Olympics?

    • t bell

      What not to do in your design class and don’t draft your models from the boy hooker’s corner even if they’re cheap.

    • TigerLaverada

      Cartoon clothes. Some of those shoes look positively huge. I’m guessing they’re all attempting to look uber-cool, but to me the models all look like pissy 17-year-old who absolutely hate what they’re being made to wear.

    • CT14

      Some of it works better than others, but WTF with the clown shoes?

      Seriously.

    • E.Nelson

      The jackets look too big and the pants look ill-fitting; the massive shoes have a cool, Clockwork Orange-esque look with the tights, and the shorts are really cool. But Christ, those JACKETS. Yikes.

    • quiltrx

      I like the two-color swirled stuff, particularly the dressier jackets and coats. But I’m not sure if I like them as ‘wearable clothes’ as much as ‘clothes as art’. And I *wanted* to like the dress shoes, but that extreme width is too much to take.

    • demidaemon

      Considering this is the first menswear collection of the season that doesn’t make me want to gouge out my eyeballs, it isn’t all that bad. I like most of the white clothes with the abstract color details. However, the jodhpurs must die.

    • altermyego

      I think we owe Alan Cummings and Tilda an apology. I don’t think that even they would wear these clothes.

      And what’s with the belt just below the nipples in pic #5? That’s bad. Really bad.

    • decormaven

      Suit no. 8 is very intriguiing. The pieces with the recurring motifs are not as interesting to me. They look like one-offs for Olympics uniforms.

    • JynxTheCat

      It all looks like various team uniforms for Olympic opening ceremonies.
