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!)

          • He’d be in good hands.

          • Raspberry2012


          • 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!!

      • 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.

    • 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


    • 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.

      • 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!!!”

    • 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.

    • 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

  • 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.

    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.

    • 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.

  • 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


  • 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.
