    • 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!
