  • TinyDynamo

    Holy moly! This was made for Elijah Wood!

  • NMMagpie

    Not bad, but kinda meh. The knits are the heroes here.

  • sleepycat

    OMG I want all the contrast stitching jackets. Also I really want that green leather one. Also this would require being thin though to really make this sing. I have to say, I am not always in love with Prada’s womenswear but I LOVE the menswear. Also i love the styling. #twee

  • Thomas

    Finally a collection with some wearable pieces!

  • another_laura

    I may be in a minority but I HATE the topstitching. It’s wrecking everything it touches. Granted, if not for the topstitching this would be unremarkable for the most part … oh, wait ….

    • Imasewsure

      I think it’s a love it or hate it trend for sure…. and I hate it too…. seems very juvenile to me…

    • joything

      A contrast-topstitched fly says, “My dick is HERE and it’s THIS long.”

      • Stacy C

        It makes you want to sing the “Schlong song”

    • Man Dala

      Hate it too, you’re not alone.

    • demidaemon

      I agree. It looks a bit fake and unnecessary for me. Just make real lapels, for God’s sake

    • Lower L

      The contrast stitching is giving me a distinct Captain Kangaroo vibe.

    • FuhUgh

      I knew I should have saved Grandpa’s 1970′s leisure suits.

    • formerlyAnon

      I associate that kind of top stitching with cheap off-brand and little boy’s clothing from the ’70s. Need I say, I’m not a fan?

  • Lori

    Most guys aren’t going to be able to wear this without looking like crap, but at least it’s not totally insane. Except for the shoes. I’m not sure why they’re wearing Teva’s ugly cousin.

    • Thomas

      Are you saying it only works for a certain body type, specifically twinks?

      • Lori

        I would never say that. I would however say that on any guy with more than 2% body fat the pants in this collection are going to look like Pop Pop Jeans.

        • alyce1213

          You have a point.

        • barbarienne

          As I scrolled down, my overwhelming reaction was, “Wow, those sure are a lot of hideous pants.” I don’t think any of them look good even on these models.

          Aside from the contrast topstitching (which I loathe), what is with those super-low crotches? That has been a thing lately in plus-size women’s pants, too. Designers, this is not the correct way to avoid cameltoe.

          • Lori

            Yeah, I don’t understand why they did that with the crotches. That and the weird sandals are just bizarre. I’m not a fan of the contrast stitching either, but I at least consider that a legitimate “tastes vary” issue. It’s mostly ugly to my eye, but I don’t think it’s nuts. The crotch issue is nuts.

            It says something about how bad the menswear has been this year that you can send that down the runway and still be hands down the least hideous collection we’ve seen so far.

          • FrigidDiva

            I looked at this whole collection with Michael Korr’s voice in my head–”That crotch is insane!”

    • marlie

      The shoes are really nice, but the mandals should be set on fire.

      • evave2

        I hate the mandals. What a stupid name for something that is stupid looking.

      • Jacob Bowen

        I LOVE a good mandal, but those are RIDICULOUS!

        • MoHub

          I don’t mind guys in sandals, but the garments have to be appropriate. Short or beachwear: yes; pseudo suits: no.

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

      The sandals with the white bumpers make me think of lady’s pads, or bandage pads, something to absorb a mess on the floor?

  • hughman

    Vote For Pedro.

    • Sarah

      Seriously. Eat the FOOD, Tina.

      • kimmeister

        Come get your ham!

    • Glam Dixie

      All of your wildest dreams will come true.

    • lsaspacey

      Yes, I immediately thought Napoleon Dynamite IS IN THE HOUSE! But why would that be a good thing? However, that first green leather coat and some of the sweaters could make me very happy!

  • Loola234

    Love the sweaters – especially the turtleneck!

  • alyce1213

    A big NO to the contrast color topstitching — it makes garments look cheap. Otherwise, there are some nice pieces — plaid shirts, coats, sweaters that aren’t run-of-the mill. Tricky, but interesting.

  • Karl Schappell

    Yeah, no. I usually find Prada’a menswear kind of blah, except for the shoes which are usually so damn covetable. Not this time at all. Welllll, maybe one of those odd little sandals.

  • EveEve

    This is the worst menswear season in memory. On the other hand, maybe it will weed out some of the design houses that are teetering on the brink of bankruptcy.

  • anonylind

    Leisure suits from 1975. My 8th grade boyfriend had one.

    • Imasewsure

      I didn’t even recognize why I hated those pieces… leisure suits…. Mr Roper… middle school culmination dance…. it’s all rushing back to me now….

    • FrigidDiva

      The looks made me think of Mr. Rogers’ neighborhood. Especially the sweaters.

  • marlie

    That green leather jacket with the tan trim? MUST. HAVE. NOW. I really like this collection. Wearable, classic pieces, with some simple embellishments to make them stand out. And another menswear collection where *I* want all (ok, a lot) of the clothes myself.

    ETA: I see I’m in the minority. Unlike most of the kittens so far, I love the topstitching.

    • Thomas

      We can sit in the corner together. I like the topstitching too, esp. on the blue blazer third pic down. I want that NOW.

      • Gatto Nero

        Yes! It’s so exaggerated, but the proportions are perfect.

    • FibonacciSequins

      I’m fine with the topstitching on the jackets. Don’t like it on the pants.

    • MilaXX

      That green leather is pretty much the only thing I like here. I don’t mind a retro nod, but having already lived through these fashions once, I don’t need a repeat.

    • KBz

      The green jacket is giving me a Loki vibe

  • numenah

    So many bad crotches.

    • demidaemon

      Yes. I probably spent 90% of my time in viewing this collection by analyzing and staring at the crotches of their pants.

      • Kathy

        And not in a good way.

  • Diane_G

    Prada: for the rich Ivy-league hipsters. All we need are some beards on these models.

  • Daenyx

    Thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster, something tasteful.

    Not the most interesting collection in the world, but tasteful.

  • Lily

    Well, it least it looks like menswear and not the 2014 International Clown Convention (*cough* Moschino *cough). Related, my dad had a semblance of a pair of those criss-cross standals circa 1973, so there’s that. Will say that the tailoring is full-on win!

  • d4divine

    The Brady Bunch look is back!

  • t bell

    What is with the polyester leisure suit look, bringing back the 70′s again? The sweaters and vests are OK but will gladly pass on the rest including the twink models.

  • Ashleigh

    U G L Y shoes/sandals/strappy hippy things

  • BobStPaul

    I like a lot of the shapes and tailoring. I hate some of the color combinations and absolutely loathe the top-stitching. And give those children something to eat.

  • @Biting Panda

    Soooooo that happened. Not a fan. This man is not in my world, not on my radar.

    • Glam Dixie

      Mine either and for that I say thank goodness.

  • carrie

    I HATE the contrast stitch on everything. Way to make Prada look cheap.

  • desertsweetpea

    Well, at least there aren’t any mesh pants. That’s something I guess.

    • FrigidDiva

      Or toga diapers, so…yay?

  • Bad Idea Jeans

    I mostly don’t have a problem with this, except PLEASE SAY NO TO MANDALS.

  • Glam Dixie

    That contrasting seaming is so cheap looking. Sears clearance catalog.

  • Gatto Nero

    I can see that I’m in the minority, but I love everything here.
    All the seaming and topstitching is kind of playful — like two-dimensional (paper-doll) clothing that someone drew on.

  • Frank_821

    nice enough but it doesn’t feel spring

  • Therese Bohn

    Aaack! Shades of 1970′s Leisure Suits with the polyester look and the white stitching! No-o-o-o, not again!!!

    • Kathy

      People were making fun of leisure suits when leisure suits were a thing.

      • Therese Bohn

        Middle aged men were mostly attracted to them– polyester in all colors of the rainbow, huge lapels, white stitching, and they had to have white belts with matching white ducks! (shoes) My History teacher wore them all the time.

        • Kathy

          Yes, I remember lots of teachers wearing them. It brings a smile to my face when I think of that, but I’m with you. Not again!

  • Steve Ek

    Spring 2015 – brought to you by the Sears fall/winter catalogue 1963 in conjunction with Dr. Scholls. This all looks cheap, ugly, ill fitting and, the bizarre mandals aside, completely season inappropriate. Just as fug as the other Italian men’s collections only nerdier. The jeans remind me of the old Huskies brand for chubby boys.

  • conniemd

    I just can’t get past the models to even see the clothes. They are too young, thin, dour and angry looking to appeal to me, a straight woman. Having seen the models and collections recently I wonder if at least for runway shows the design houses have marketed their menswear totally for gay men? And do they have a stereotype of gay men that they design around? The gay men that I know often drool at the same men that I do. None of these guys look like Matthew Bomer or Joe Manganiello. I feel like the design houses are marketing to a very small audience of for lack of a better term, I’d call “flamboyent gays.” Like everyone else in the world there are all kinds that make up a grouping.

    I may have offended people with my comments, and they were not intended to be derogatory or inflammatory, but really to raise an issue that I feel worthy of discussion, that being the intentions and marketing schemes and audiences of fashion houses. I apologize in advance, as its hard for a person, not being of a minority, to comment on that minority without generalizing and being offensive to some.

  • FibonacciSequins

    Thrift-shop grandpa chic.

    Are they kidding with the contrasting stitching on the fly?

  • Trickytrisha

    Wow, more awful jeans, which look even more awful on 15 year old guys who haven’t filled out yet. This isn’t even Nerd Fashion, it’s too depressing. Boo to the hiddy sandals as well.

  • MilaXX

    Nope, this is far too literal and costume-y. I suspect the runway music was Sunshine Day.

  • YoungSally

    I haven’t seen topstitching like that since the ’75 Sears catalog

  • kimmeister

    The cut of all the jeans is really offputting.

  • fursa_saida

    Love the color palette and a lot of the jackets and knits. I like the mixing of materials. Again with the horrific mandals, though! I need this explained to me. There are jillions of gorgeous sandals out there for women; why is it no one can seem to make a passable pair for men? The only sandals I have seen look reasonable on a man are Birks and flip flops. Surely this cannot be the limit of our sandal ingenuity as a species.

  • Man Dala

    Those models are VERY young.

  • http://www.bertkeeter.com Bert Keeter

    These “boys’ having barely reached puberty… Lets see this on some “David Gandy” types…then lets talk!

  • Guest

    Is it just me or is everyone taking “normcore” very seriously?

  • Tarah

    Is it just me or is everyone taking “normcore” very seriously?

  • demidaemon

    This is definitely in the like but do not love territory. Complaints: 1) The crotches on almost every pair of pants is all wrong. 2) The stitching on these jackets looks weird. I don’t much like the effect. 3) It seems a mite heavy for spring.

  • uprightcitizen

    The fabrics are cool, but the cuts look like the way old men wear their clothes, especially the pants. And I’m not sure what is going on with those sandals, but walking around looking like you forgot to get the packing material off your footwear is pretty ugly. I wish I could like the white stitching, but having lived through the era of the leisure suit (even at 12, I had better taste than to own one), I just can’t. :-)

  • Lower L

    #12 is almost the cute boy in my 19th Century Lit class at Moscow State Pedagogical University, 1992-93. Except for the leather trim on the jeans–and ridiculous-ass shoes, of course.

  • anotherkate

    The sandals are deeply odd, and I don’t care for most of the jeans, but everything else is fantastic.

  • quiltrx

    The clothes are kinda sad and OMG TOES GET AWAY.

  • shopgirl716

    Leisure suits? Wow.

  • Linda Leeson

    Huh, and when did leisure suits and polyester jeans come back?

  • BlairBear

    What an odd collection

  • VioletFem

    The exposed stitching works better on the coats than it does on the pants.

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

    perfectly Prada.
    And if I were like 98 lbs, I’d wear much of it
    (ok, so like whatever knockoff I could find at TJ Maxx)

  • boweryboy

    Props to Miuccia for taking the ugly Teva sandal trend to new heights. Bravo.

    There are some interesting pieces here and there but overall the suits look like they’re in the process of being tailored and the pants fit like the polyester pants I used to buy from thrift stores in my early 20s. In short, no one over 25 should attempt any of these looks.

  • Bozhi

    Mostly ugly. I mean, really ugly.

  • unbornfawn

    Mismatched shirts and sweater vests? It’s the Koothrappali collection!

  • icm

    Is it just me or are these boys looking more and more emaciated ? There has been so much focus on the female models and weight. But I fear that this is a problem in the male model world that is going unaddressed . Except for a few shows (Nautica ) comes to mind where the guys are more athletic and muscular the higher end fashion houses seem to believe that these guys are attractive ( they are not !)They look malnourished and sickly .As for the clothing ,mostly another assortment of crappy stuff that most men of the world cannot afford or would ever wear.

  • mmebam

    Them sandals are UGLY. But the loafers with the topstitching are fun.

  • Snailstsichr

    There are some seriously ugly sandals in that collection.

  • lilazander

    All I can see are those exagerrated zippers in the crotch, they kind of comical to me.

  • Gloriana Reginata

    The crotches look deformed, all the outfits draw the eye immediately to those god-awful sandals, and the models wear the expressions of men suffering in the second circle of Dante’s hell. Just, no.

  • PinkyK

    LOVE the sweaters & long leather coats! However, those sandals….YIKES! So not sexy!

  • FrigidDiva

    I live in the Midwest in an area where we have a lot of farming around us, and you see a lot of the older farmers still rocking the polyester pants and the jeans with the stitching that looks like this, plus the jackets when it’s time to get dressed up for church. To me this collection really doesn’t have a fresh feel to, it just seems like someone went on a thirft store dumpster dive and pieced something together.

  • RescueMe23

    I’m still laughing hysterically trying to picture any of the men I know wearing any of this!

  • mimi

    Oh god, the shoes. Why????

  • AndieJay

    Please for the love of all that’s stylish, let this 70s crap be over soon. I can’t stand it anymore. This collection looks like someone went through my high school yearbook and just duplicated what they saw.

  • gitchygitchymama

    True Religion meets Banana Republic in double knit polyester and way too much lambskin.

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

    Those sandals are hateful. They look like medical devices.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    I like most of this. Pray-Day of all labels, being the sterile eye wash, cleansing me from all the Versayce diaper fuckery from yesterday.

  • Shawn EH

    Don’t mind the non-patterned v-neck sweater, and I suppose a hip guy could rock one (but only one) of those cartoon-outline blazers.

  • RedRaven617

    Leisure suits? :::Sigh:::: yuck

  • formerlyAnon

    Really NICE sweaters. Some of the leather coats are nice as well, but for me it’s the sweaters that really shine.

    I don’t care for the top stitched jackets – I associate that with cheap off brand or little boy’s clothing from the ’70s. (Rightly or wrongly.)

  • Kerry McCombs

    Um, how old are these models? They all look about 12 years old.

  • LeelaST

    I’ll take the green leather coat for my SO. Otherwise, ghastly. Looks like knockoff Levis/Lee.

  • Lex

    Ever time those hideous sandals are shown, I keep thinking they must have just gotten pedis and accidentally forgot to take those cheap flip-flops off AND left the toe separator foam in… and then I focus in and realize, oh, those were actually designed to be that ugly and clumsy.

  • Lilyana_F

    OMG, these fugly sandals….. men, please don’t.

  • FridaStaire

    Wow! I am transported to a small town full of serial killer in 1974!

  • JynxTheCat

    Yes to everything except anythign remotley leisure suit looking, and the shoes. But OH the coats. Drooooool.

  • Jellybeanz

    I’m loving everything from the waist up, and hating almost everything from the waist down. The sweaters and coats are amazing, but those exaggerated seams on the pants and sandals are horrible!
