      Is it odd that I kept seeing Tilda in most of these pieces? I like the more basic looks, because I think the prints aren’t that great.

      • FibonacciSequins

        Tilda could rock a lot of this. Agree with you on the basics vs prints.

        • Fred Vaughn

          You’re not alone in that sentiment re: Tilda-ing it the fuck up. Also, perhaps the best menswear runway deployment of sandals I’ve seen in some time.

      • marlie

        I just said that! (Before I scrolled down to read the comments). I’ve been saying “Tilda” for a LOT of this season’s menswear.

      • conniemd

        Tilda looks very good in browns and beiges and male type cuts. I pictured her in the tan slacks and jacket with the turquoise and white flowers (??) And I think the reason the prints are on the blah side is that they totally remind me of my dad’s pajamas, which have to be the most boring clothes on earth.

      • demidaemon

        I think 90% of the prints here are hideous. Most of them are pretty ugly florals on fetuses, which has the unfortunate effect of dowdiness. ON MEN.

      • Crystal

        I’d watch an entire runway show of Tilda dressed in these clothes.

    • Thomas

      Hideous. It’s like looking at wallpaper from the 60s and 70s.

      • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

        Paired with prison shower shoes, in some cases. NOES.

        • Thomas

          They’d be better off wearing maxi pads like in OITNB.

      • LostInThrace

        Wallpaper in a hunting lodge in the Poconos.

      • evave2

        No I see PAJAMAS. At least the pajamas my mama used to buy me. Some of the shoes looked like footies too.
        Looking at all the men’s spring 2015 I just keep thinking WTF.

        • demidaemon

          Exactly my thoughts. Ugly pajamas.

    • CPK1

      We’ve seen some hilarious men’s collections over the last few days (Cavalli, D-Squared, Cavalli) but this is just drab, ugly and depressing. Bring back the Versace toga diaper I say

      • Frank_821

        I was thinking the same thing. It is very drab. the prints awful

    • mjude

      most look like pj’s to me. just don’t get the menswear at all

      • Zeee

        I thought jammies too.

      • kimmeister

        Hugh Hefner would love this collection for lounging about in his mansion.

      • Aurumgirl

        That’s what I thought, too: pigiamini! I’m sure when my husband sees this he’s gonna regret leaving those swordfish print pants on the clearance rack at Brooks Brothers.

    • SayWhaaatNow

      Is this really for spring? The colors read “Autumn” to me.

    • FibonacciSequins

      Overcoat-over-pajamas isn’t working for me.

      Love the plaid suits, the jeans, the green suede jacket and the shoes/bags.

    • Anna

      Arts & Crafts, pyjamas and Tevas…oh my.

    • Kitten Mittons

      3rd picture:
      “Yes, I have a pen here somewhere, hold on just a sec.”

      *Crawls into ginormous pocket on front of jacket*

    • Sarah

      I think the colors are sort of dark for spring, but there’s some coat porn in there for sure, and I like a lot of the pieces, taken on their own and not as a complete H to T set.

    • Glam Dixie

      Most of this looks like Dick Van Dyke’s more modern jammies.

      • Kent Roby

        “Dick Van Dyke” is a stage name; do you know what his given name was (without Googling)?

        • Gatto Nero

          Is it? And his brother took “Jerry Van Dyke”?

          • boweryboy

            I always thought that was his real name, and that Dick was short for Richard.

        • Glam Dixie

          I honestly have no idea. Do tell.

          • Kent Roby

            He real name is Penis Van Lesbian. (sorry, that is such a terrible joke, but I’m having that kind of day, lol).

            • Glam Dixie

              Bazinga, I’ve fallen for another of your classic pranks. Seriously, can’t believe I fell for that one, but it’s been that kind of day. My MIL and my mother are both at my house ALL day cleaning. Kill me.

            • Gatto Nero

              Can they come clean my house next?

            • Glam Dixie

              Come get them, seriously.

            • Gatto Nero

              Oh no you didn’t.

    • Kathy

      Are leather scrubs a thing?

    • Danielle

      Made especially for you by Grandma xoxo

      • Glam Dixie

        You win, that made me chuckle.

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

      I saw that trench coat up top, I had such hope. As I scrolled down, it dissipated. There are a couple of not hideous things (the camp shirt with the fan-like design, the camo leather/pleather short jacket) but the percentage is not high enough for me to take this collection seriously.

      • demidaemon

        I almost liked that look, until I realized the camo shirt was colkorblocked. WHO COLORBLOCKS CAMO?

    • Gatto Nero

      The prints and pattern mixing are pretty cool — and quite beautiful in some cases — but many of these pieces (the suede jackets especially) and the overall palette say autumn to me rather than spring.

      • conniemd

        Yeah, I thought the browns in the color palette made it look so autumn. Come spring time, you want to see some colors to pull you out of the drab winter or at least some lightness.

      • Wink

        Yes, a lot of it seems way more autumn than spring. I really like the plaid suits and a couple of the coats. Some of the ensembles look like luxurious sleepwear.

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

        I’m a fashion newbie, but so far everything I’ve seen from Valentino is autumnal toned.

    • marlie

      I see we’re back to the ugly Teva-like sandals. I like a few of these suits, and I’d love to see someone like Tilda in some of them, but a lot (the satin-y ones) look like pajamas.

    • Mildred20

      Why do all the 2015 Spring Menswear collections look more like Womens wear collections?

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        Because people like you expect men to dress a certain way in order to be a man. No wonder most men (or should I say real men?) aren’t more adventurous when it comes to the way they dress. L

        • Mildred20

          You are right. I should keep an open mind.

          • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

            I have talked to a lot of men (straight and gay) who have expressed their interest in wearing more colors, prints, etc. but the pressure to dress a certain way is much bigger, which is really a shame. : )

        • Mr. J.

          Uncle dearest, you are so right…..I am digging this collection SO BAD….but then, I lived for years in LA, where I used to wear my pajamas to the supermarket–no one ever batted an eye…..men’s clothing is so boring, most of the time, that I could SCREAM…..now, if someone could make interesting clothes for men who aren’t 20 and weigh 100 pounds…..I am not holding my breath.

        • Peeve

          That’s pretty reductive, though. In my experience, more of those opinions are coming from men than women. It’s pretty ridiculous that in this day and age, a lot of men have problems wearing pink, and would rather die than seeing their sons in anything but blue after they’re born. Women do it too, but most of the straight women I know are trying to get their partners to dress more adventurously, not less.

    • Beardslee

      Such unflattering cuts. Swathes of extra fabric, slouchiness, patterns – just messy. I do love those plaid suits though. Ah, tailoring.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      There are a lot of pajamas in this collection…very fancy pjs, but pjs none the less.

    • JauntyJohn

      I love a lot of this — but then, I have been known to sneak pajama pieces into an outfit or two (comfortable! breathable! different drummer and all that…)
      It’s an unusual palette for spring, but to my eye it works.
      Pull some of these pieces into separates, pair them with something fitted and simple, and I think you could come up with something fresh and dramatic.
      And a couple of those coats (pic#15, I’m looking at you) are gorgeous, unusual choices.

      • Tami from Seattle

        I don’t see a problem with men wearing pajama-y pieces out of doors. After all, that’s what yoga pants and maxi skirts basically are.

        • demidaemon

          I don’t know. Pajam-y I guess could work, but I’ve always had a problem with people wearing pajamas as clothing. It reminds me too much of college, and the extreme laziness some people would show in basic grooming.

      • Gatto Nero

        I agree. And I know I’m an outlier here, but the darkness of this collection appeals to me, and I love several of the prints.

    • suzq

      I’m not sure I like the wide shirts and jackets. They are really tenty and not very flattering. Most men don’t need the extra bulk.
      So the fashionistas are trying to make patterned suits a thing. I’m not sure this is the collection that turns the tide for the general populace, however. I like some of the mixing and matching going on.
      The formal shorts are some of the most flattering I’ve seen.
      I LOVE the two-toned loafers!

    • BobStPaul

      Yet another tacky-ass collection.

    • Kent Roby

      I like the plaid suits, and even the couple of overcoats that look like upholstery fabric.

      • kimmeister

        The slate blue one is amazing!

        • EveEve

          I’m digging the greige animal print coat. And the plaids are quite nice too. In fact, as a whole, this collection is much better than his recent womens wear, IMO

    • Imasewsure

      The two plaid suits are fantastic and I love them. The rest looks like a pretentious pajama party

    • Sif

      If menswear designers don’t get their shit together, label whores will have nothing to wear and run down the street naked in 2015. Damn, this collection has some terrible prints…

    • Alyssa

      I agree with others…most of these look like fancy pajamas! I do hope to see some of the suit jackets show up on the red carpet, especially the metallic shiny one (14th pic down).

    • Tracy_Flick

      I love that jacket with the stars. LOVE.

    • Frank_821

      I agree with everyone else. This collection is really banal. They tried getting on board with the bold print thing that everyone else is doing for men’s spring but the chocie really fall flat. Not to mention we’ve got oversized coats and pajama suits

      I can’t really say it’s ugly. It’s just kind dark and depressing. if you’re going to do prints like this they should at least have some exuberance. Even the whacked out stuff from versace and moschino had some oomph. ugly oomph but oomph nonetheless

    • Denise Alden

      Oh-oh: I’m out of step again! I’ve disliked all the other menswear Spring collections so far, but I really like this one. Weird, huh?

      • sienna elm

        Nope! I’m completely with you! I think this is probably one of the most wearable menswear collections we’ve seen the last couple of weeks. I love it.

        • Denise Alden

          Yes, wearable and so pretty, too.

      • MilaXX

        I like this collection as well.

    • boweryboy

      As I clicked the link waiting for the page to load I kept repeating, “Don’t be crazy. Don’t be crazy.” Yeah. So much for that.

      All I see is daywear pajamas.The plaid suits are delicious but the rest of this can go on the menswear bonfire pile. At least the sandals aren’t as heinous as other collections (but really, what’s up with the Teva sandal craze?).

      • somebody blonde

        I was just wondering that. I think a lot of these pieces would be fine if styled correctly, and ugly sandals are not the way to style anything correctly.

      • demidaemon

        I feel like the fabrications and lack of tailoring aren’t helping the less than stellar prints. I think, in different fabric (more matte, heavier weight), and with less draping, we might respond differently to the collection.

    • Lilah

      Super white bread. Kind of weird.

    • Shawn EH

      Are there gay golfing clubs?

    • Tami from Seattle

      I dig this collection. So much of the men’s clothes that are rendered in fancy fabrics/patterns look like lady clothes. In my opinion, this collection does not.

    • KinoEye

      I think some of these pieces could really work as separates — the jackets, specifically. I’d love to see the right man in that dark floral number in the 14th photo. Or the jacket in the 20th photo. Gorgeous.

    • cwade1211

      Jammies!

    • sienna elm

      The boy in the camo??? Does he not look twelve!?!?! (maybe a soft fourteen?)

    • MilaXX

      Not bad. Love the bags & shoes. Strongly like most of the coats, jackets & suits. Dislike the casual print pieces. They look like pajamas

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

      Pajamas and ugly Xmas sweaters?
      Nope

    • kimmeister

      Mariah is totally buying all of the butterfly pieces for her husband.

    • PinkyK

      It seems to be very crafty….

    • Lex

      The florals make it very Geisha Boy and are very arts n crafts like others noted. It’s not sophisticated in its execution. HOWEVER, the two plaid suits are totally amazing and look like they are part of a much higher end collection.

    • mmebam

      “Thanks, grandma, for my Christmas pajamas…”

    • Monabel

      I like these- color! pattern!

    • WhyEden

      They have the most gorgeous fabrics and they turn them into shapeless sleepware. Not only is it kinda fug (not all of them, though. The last pics have some good, more tailored stuff in them), but it’s been done before. Marc Jacobs’ runway has been looking like a slu,ber party for quite a few seasons by now.

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

      As with most of Valentine’s designs, I like the prints. Just not all at once.

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

      Little boys in their big sisters’ pajamas.

    • Mona_Visa

      I think a guy with long, beautiful hair could wear these looks. Someone with a bit of a rock star vibe.

      • KinoEye

        Jared Leto’s your man. I can see him in several pieces from this collection.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      The Golden Boys! Starring Beau Arthur! Rubin McLanahan! Benny White! And Esteban Getty!

    • Ashleigh

      glorified PJs

    • KT

      Fancy pajamas galore, with a sprinkling of The Partridge Family

    • LJCdoc

      Me on seeing this post: “Oh, goodie, more menswear crap, what will it be today”. Did not expect jammies, but I’m not disappointed.

    • Patrick Cleary

      That olive jacket at the end is something I want very badly.

    • Bad Idea Jeans

      Ladies pajamas.

    • Starts with K

      Hugh Hefner is getting a new wardrobe next season.

    • greenwich_matron

      Looks like he stole his Auntie Mame’s pajamas.

    • uprightcitizen

      A lot of it looks like pajamas in public, but those plaid blazers, and the dark silk suit jacket would be awesome to have.

    • Nyima

      Pretty boys in PJs. Not necessarily a bad thing

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

      I recently got my husband into an intense, modern plaid he never would have picked for himself and he openly admitted it looked fantastic with his new suit. Now that we’ve jumped that hurdle, I wonder if I could get him into abstracted tulips? Those are his colors. While I could see a piece here and there working with jeans on a country artist, and a suit or two on the dandies in the crowd, the only man I can imagine wearing a lot of this is Florence Welch’s imaginary brother.

    • sleepycat

      I really like this. The prints are cool. Again, only money and fit issues keeping me away.

    • Anique Ashraf

      I have never in my life wanted something with butterflies on it that bad. And that’s saying a lot.

    • forcingasmile

      I NEED that butterfly bomber!

    • t bell

      Beige or blue sweater OK. Plaid suits look like the one the guy wore that sold me my piece of crap used car.. I might use some of those pajama things at home but only if there was no one else there.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      Does it seem like a lot of collections lately have been about twee forest folk and their magical encampments?

    • Daenyx

      The first half or so of the pictures all look like pajamas to me.

    • ellatheingenue

      This looks a lot like that one miu miu collection with the cat coats and applique craziness.

    • Maggie Smith

      I LOVE the face pins.

    • demidaemon

      The two plaid suits are the only pieces of the collection I have no quibbles with. Otherwise, it looks like all the models just woke up and walked onto the runway. It’s the ugly floral pajamas collection. Except, these are all women’s pajamas on men. NOT GOOD.

    • little britches

      I love nearly all of it! Imagining the separates on all sorts of fashion-forward people. Old wallpaper, vintage ties and Hawaiian shirts; hunting lodges, chintz, jammies, eccentric aunts and uncles. It feels cohesive and tailored, even the flowier pieces. Nothing shocking, but nifty.

    • W. Frame

      this is the strangest Nudie Cohn homage I’ve ever seen.

    • quiltrx

      Well, ALL the lines are up for making men look stupid next Spring…at least Valentino gave it the twist of making them look stupid in their PAJAMAS.

    • icm

      Good Lord feed these boys!

    • kategs

      I like some of the prints but not the way they are utilized.

    • Trickytrisha

      Pale 16 year old boys wearing jammies and doing their best to look like elf extras from Lord of the Rings.

    • Crystal

      These are goofy but I like them more than the weird “Godspell” costume getup and the “80’s part 2″ ensembles.

    • Badriya Al-Badi’a

      Is there an actual target customer for these menswear collections, or are they basically big creative PR stunts? I ask in all seriousness, and with curiosity rather than any kind of judgement. With most women’s collections, you can think of somebody who will wear most pieces, or at the very least modified versions. But it’s pretty hard to imagine who the Versace toga diaper is designed for, or who would wear some of these floral pj suits. You don’t see men or boy stars wearing this stuff, generally, so is there anybody who does wear it?

      (also I would love the coat with all the animals on it for myself :)

    • formerlyAnon

      The plaid suits, and a few of the rest (slacks and jackets, mostly) as separates. But as shown it’s like a whole lot of pajama/lounging outfits, some with a nice sweater or coat thrown on over the jammies to make a run for milk & a paper. Decent sandals. Most of the prints are going to be too challenging (either feminine or just too pronounced) for the men I know.

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      The first part of the collection looks like everyone just work up from a nap.

    • jml27

      The colors are to die for…I would wear some of these..and I’m a female.

    • https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Farmhouse-Store/95951940388 Bill Curtis

      The butterfly suit jacket with a pair of jeans? I could rock that.

      The rest of it is a bridge too far.

    • altermyego

      The silver and red suit (4th from the bottom), Robert Downey Jr. Although I’d hate to see the shoes he’d pick to wear with it.

    • JynxTheCat

      PJs are getting SUPER fancy.
