Yea or Nay: Man-Metallics

Posted on June 07, 2013

What is love? Baby don’t hurt me.

Sorry, we’re having a flashback moment.



Can you blame us? Suddenly it’s the ’90s, darlings! We were so much prettier then! Now, we just know we’re going to have a hard time getting the ladies on board with this one, but we have very fond memories of silver metallic jeans and bright blue metallic shirts and pewter metallic trenchcoats we got for a steal down on Canal Street. But this was long ago, kittens. Our metallics days are over, but we wouldn’t dream of denying them to young, silly boys with a need to strut and display their plumage.

So, no. We probably wouldn’t find ourselves wearing many of the pieces above, but we would hope little dandyboys out there get the change to reflect the light a little. Which means our question for this Sausage Friday is simple:


Man-Metallics: YEA or NAY?


Think of all those little twinks out there, starving for some sparkle. Won’t you help?
