No, wait. Sorry. These are apparently just some really hot Game of Thrones cosplayers. Either way, enjoy the view.

    • BlairBear

      I want that gray turtleneck so badly even if it would make me like mousy

      • J.W.

        I’m a woman and I want that gray sweater.

        • FibonacciSequins

          I would be happy to have any of the knits in any of the photos, basically.

        • Lori

          I’m a woman who looks mousy in gray and I want that gray sweater.

        • Hermione

          I’m a woman and I want most of those items in the female versions, even the bejeweled slippers. I would pass on the gloves, but the shoes could work with the right outfit.
          Is it me or do all the models look the same, like there’s just one guy and they photoshopped him to make a group?

          • J.W.

            I’d take the bejeweled slippers as well.

          • Raspberry2012

            I’d like the bejeweled slippers too, I have to admit. I’m bored with the rest of it, but they did catch my eye. As for the model, if we’re talking about the same guy (the goofball wearing the crown in the 7th picture down?), that could very well be the same guy. He looks a lot like my youngest nephew, so he doesn’t do a lot for me. (Hey! HEY!! Paws off the nephew, Kittens, he’s only 19!)

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

              He’d be in good hands.

            • Raspberry2012

              HEY!!!

            • Jacob Bowen

              Well, 19 is well within my age range…only 4 years younger than me.

          • Violentcello

            Many of them do look alike. Except for the goofy James Marsden look-alike I’ve been meowing over.

          • FuhUgh

            I’ll take the gloves so you don’t have need to…

          • Jessie Melcher Brown

            I will take the gloves. I will wear them with my velvet nobel’s gown to my local renaissance faire and the other rennies will drool all over them.

    • RussellH88

      I guess it’s better than the Italian drag they tend to default to.

      I can’t help but laugh at how ridiculous the pictures are. It seems to alternate between having fun and striking “You talkin’ to me?” posturing.

      • marlie

        It’s “Italian Mafia meets Game of Thrones.”

        • Raspberry2012

          Yes, it’s very that!!

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

          Exactly what I just said to my husband!

        • FuhUgh

          The young guy in the crown in the 7th picture down…. looks like Max from Where the Wild Thing Are as a teenager.

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

        I thought at first it was “Il Divo” or someone gone lost in the woods..

      • Raspberry2012

        “Italian Drag” – Hee!!

      • evave2

        It looks like scenes from a bunch of dayplayers or crowd guys waiting to be called to be in the background of a Godfather 4 movie.

        Are the gloves/footwear from #1 being sold by D/G?

        The knitwear is always wonderful by these designers; I don’t much like the pants though (too egregiously skinny).

    • M_E_S

      I am pretty much speechless. I don’t even know how to react to these ads, other then the fact that those jeweled gloves are HIDEOUS

      • Henry Maler

        The gloves look like the ones that I use for yardwork went through a brutal bedazzling.

        • FrigidDiva

          I thought they looked like bedazzled soccer goalie gloves.

          • random_poster

            Me too!

            • Raspberry2012

              Jeweled Oven Mitts!

            • kimmeister

              That was my take too. Jeweled, Medieval oven mitts.

        • Denise Alden

          Sadly, they also look like what Madonna will soon be wearing.

          • Gatto Nero

            The fingerless version.

            • FuhUgh

              I should have read down … I pretty much just repeated this.

      • fursa_saida

        They’re ridiculous and I want them.

        • Madam Von Sassypants

          I’m going to pet so many cats while wearing those gloves.

          • fursa_saida

            ONE MILLION ITALIAN MODELS

      • FuhUgh

        Aw, I love the gloves! However, I’m guessing Madonna will very shortly be sporting a fingerless version, after which I too will hate the gloves.

    • MoHub

      Second to last looks like a wacky modernization of Robin Hood.

      • Snarkmeister

        And yet…I kind of love the balaclava/snood hybrids. Balacloods? Snoodaclavas? I dunno, but I pretty much want to knit one right now.

        • FibonacciSequins

          I love those too and come December, I will want one.

    • FibonacciSequins

      How did that old dude get in there?

      • Lori

        Set dressing.

      • Gatto Nero

        He’s one of the best “characters.”

    • marlie

      These are ridiculous and awesomely hilarious at the same time. For real – those gloves in the first picture?? The goofy expressions? I’m laughing my ass off over here. There are some really interesting pieces, though.

    • Mona_Visa

      I want them to strip & fight. Is it wrong?

      • Kathy

        If wanting that is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

        • Kitten Mittons

          I like imagining your two avatars having this actual conversation, like paintings/pictures from Harry Potter.

        • demidaemon

          I’m sure if they had photos of that, D & G would have no problem selling what the models had to remove to get that way.

    • Frank_821

      I’m getting use to these silly D&G ads. some of the posturing borders on italian cliches

      that first pic, the gloves are beyond ridiculous but strangely enough I rather like the corresponding loafers. They’re kind of fabulously gay

      • random_poster

        So am I. I actually look forward to them because there is always so much to see. They don’t usually do enough to make the clothing stand out, but I almost think that’s the point. I end up looking much more intently at these ads (and, by default, the clothes) than I do at the simpler editorials.

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

          I like to pretend it’s the same cast of guys each season. You could make a story about what happened to them since the last time, to be dressed like this now.

    • Fannie Wolston

      Dothraki! where?

    • FrigidDiva

      So I’m trying to figure out what the story is here…rich guys out in the forest, who are acommpanied by their bodyguards, eating food and taunting the poor and hungry. Later on they all decide that they’re friends and change out of their suits and quaint commoner clothing and share a feast after which they all change into knit-fabic chain mail outfits to play capture the bejeweled gloves.

    • random_poster

      This and the Italy v. Costa Rica soccer game happening right now, yet there are still not enough Italian men in my life.

    • Anna

      Bejewelled oven mitts!!! Is it wrong that I kind of love those?

      Guy in the 5th photo looks like he’s the third best Italian speaker in this bunch and he’s passionately arguing his case off camera with Colonel Hans Landa : “MARG-HER-ITI!!!”

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

        Are we thinking Bedazzlers for Christmas with oven mitts?

        • Anna

          I’ve often thought that my chocolate chip cookie and brownie baking experiences could and should be enhanced by jewels!

      • Gatto Nero

        I love the mitts, too.
        But that guy in the 5th photo hurts my Italian soul.

        • Anna

          It’s just a tad OTT.

        • marlie

          I think he’s the same guy in all of the pictures with the over-the-top expressions. But yeah, I’m almost embarrassed FOR him in the 5th picture.

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

        Also his legs look weirdly undersized for the top half of his body. Not a good choice of skinny pants there.

    • Denise Rambo

      At least most of these clothes look something somebody would actually WEAR. Except, of course, for those gloves in the first photo.

    • hughman

      All of it. Love.

      I’m gluing Cheerios to the back of my old gloves as we speak.

      • Mona_Visa

        Laughed out loud. I’m coming over with Chex Mix and a hot glue gun.

      • HomeOfficeGirl

        The best!! Hugh wins again!

    • desertsweetpea

      Game of Dongs

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

        Make me snort Coca Cola out of my nose and scare the cat!

    • Glam Dixie

      Silly, alternating with hot.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      Why is the guy in the first photo wearing oven mitts?

    • mjude

      finally something I understand. belisimo

    • Kerry McCombs

      GOT is EXACTLY what I thought about when I was scrolling. They all look like they could man the Wall.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      Oh, TLO, how I wish you would give these pictures captions. :)

    • Dana Guidera

      Love it. I like the entire campaign. I viewed the women’s yesterday and it was intelligently unique.

      Sincerely,
      Author of Seven Poems from Life

    • Shawn EH

      Did they plan these from the slammer? I feel like the encourage really poor stereotypical macho behaviour with these photo shoots, but I love them.

    • Raspberry2012

      I’m totally displeased with the menswear this week! The designers need to give us more than this!

    • Joanna

      I simply love the D&G ad campaigns – they are so entertaining. And after this past week of menswear collections BOMBING (from my POV), it is refreshing to see men wearing clothes that they could reasonably get away with in the real world.

      • Grumpy Girl

        No matter the clothes, the fact that these guys seem to be having fun with it all makes it so much better.

        • conniemd

          Yep. So tired of world weary looking guys who haven’t eaten for weeks.

    • Anique Ashraf

      This would have been way more interesting if they were just wearing those goofy shoes and gloves.

    • Danielle

      James Marsden? Is that you?

      • Kristin McNamara

        It’s uncanny, really.

    • MarieLD

      As an Italian-American, I’m tired of this schtick. I know, they’re actually Italians. But c’mon.

      • Bonnie Blue

        Me too, and I tend to agree. I can just hear the cheesy accents.

    • MilaXX

      LOL I was just thinking they remind me of members of the Night’s Watch

    • Rebecca Bledsoe

      Love the photo of Italian James Marsden telling me I need to eat more, and the one right below it where he’s bringing me a piece of bread. Grazi bell’uomo!

    • RescueMe23

      I didn’t feel the need to scroll past the first picture…

    • Gatto Nero

      Love the postscript. Those boys faking the hand gestures aren’t remotely Italian.
      But I kind of love the weird prints and the entirely impractical jeweled gloves and slippers.
      The suits are kind of great, too.

    • NMMagpie

      Are they actually letting these people eat? Carbs?

      And then I got it: definitely a Hobbit vibe with dwarves in the woods.

    • formerlyAnon

      There are a lot of really nice clothes obscured in this odd stage set forest.

    • LilyVanessi

      We are the Knights of Ni…

    • mmebam

      Did #5 suddenly wake up and realize he was in the woods and start pleading for help?

    • Alloy Jane

      I love their ad campaigns. They always feel so theatrical but they never feel too serious. It’s always very tongue in cheek and I love that they pick guys that look like men or actually are men. D&G and Ralph Lauren always use the best male models.

    • KinoEye

      Oh, how I love D&G menswear editorials — come for the eye candy, stay for the hilarious photo narrative. This one looks like a continuation of the editorial from a while back on the Italian villa with all the food. They even have the guy who was staring morosely from the background! And more food!

      The fabulous mafia from the other editorial has chased the morose-looking guy (Fabricio) into the woods at the behest of the Godfather, whose daughter was engaged to Fabricio, who ran off with another man. They found him in the woods and threatened to make him wear bedazzled oven mitts unless he went through with the wedding.

      Being a forward-thinking bunch, they packed up the food from the first editorial and set it up to continue the wedding as soon as they found Fabricio. To celebrate, they dressed up in medieval couture and juggled fruits and breads. As punishment for fleeing the wedding with his gay lover, Fabricio was not allowed to eat anything other than apples.

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

        Yessss this is everything I wanted.

      • Jacob Bowen

        Thank you SO MUCH for this! I LOVED the Italian villa spread and this was TOTALLY A continuation!

    • PastryGoddess

      If I came across a man wearing that green suit of armor coat…I won’t be responsible for my lack of public decorum

    • Imasewsure

      It’s hard to see the clothes since the shots and the outfits are so dark but I do love this ad campaign and it works since it implies anyway that these are just lush, classic, impeccably made upscale staples. What a relief from the stupid stuff we’ve been looking at lately (although a little color wouldn’t hurt)

    • fananafanafophalec

      seriously MORE medieval drag? really?!? that Byzantine styled women’s collection a while back was GLORIOUS but I’m just tired of this by now.

    • LJCdoc

      Who doesn’t love a picnic? With crowns, and chain mail, and um, bejeweled gloves???

    • Innuendo

      Adorable! They made me smile!

    • Nazzzy

      I’ll take one Jason Momoa in a gray tee shirt over all these toddlers combines, impeccably dressed though they are

    • msdamselfly

      Love the sweater

    • suzq

      Everyone’s getting be-jeweled gloves for Christmas this year!

    • Shalhevet

      I feel overheated now… not in a sexy way. In an I-can’t-look-at-wooly-sweaters-now way.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      It’s all, the exiled Duke’s men are hanging in Arden Forest in As You Like It and it’s just fine by me.

    • W. Frame

      The first guy looks a lot like my urologist. As if I wasn’t distracted enough, now I’m going think of bedazzled mittens.

    • http://cheekypinky.wordpress.com cheekypinky

      I love, love, love D&G’s editorial trend of “Giant Italian Families Gesticulating in Pretty Clothing”–they bring the viewer into the story.

    • YoungSally

      It’s a bit like last season’s spread — kind of looks like none of them are actually in the studio at the same time — and then at least one creepy person lurking in the background….but I want the grey sweater too….and I will put on those jeweled gloves to get it.

    • t bell

      It’s 90 degrees outside so I am thrown a little bit off kilter. In comparison to some of the other menswear presented there actually looks as if there may be some wearable items here. That excludes that nasty looking printed suit thing and the Forest King’s gloves.

    • Trickytrisha

      Way too samey-samey as the last campaign. Just not quite as much bread and more mushrooms.

    • sleepycat

      Despite being Italian (and then a mutt on the other side) I don’t find Italian men very hot. Now if you talk about about the British/Irish/Australian/New Zealand gene pool….

    • Man Dala

      I love these D&G ensemble-cast campaigns.

    • demidaemon

      You know, I can’t give a damn about what they are wearing because all these men are smoking.

    • ChaquitaPhilly

      THANK YOU!

    • Dany

      Hot guys, idiotic setting. I mean, really, “Let’s dress up as newsboys in the forest with crowns and eat some medieval food.” WTF

    • quiltrx

      This is a fail because NO TONY WARD.
      But I guess if these are my only choices, I’ll take Mr. Double-Breasted in pic 4.
      (I kind of love how nutty and OTT their men’s spreads always are, actually.)

      • LVC

        Upvote re: Tony Ward!

    • Tanagra

      What do the guys in the third picture have in their basket? Tribbles?

    • Alexis Wenceslao

      I’m dying for those beaded smoking slippers

    • Mothra

      Are the LARPing?

    • JynxTheCat

      They dial these in at this point. Every campaign looks exactly the same to me.
