Men's Fashions

I think his shirt says it all

I will have to admit that I don’t usually follow men’s fashion. My hubby is of the serviceable yet comfortable fashion category. The few times he has been forced to dress up or dress formally he has complained nonstop. It truly is not worth it to try and get him out of his jeans and into a pair of slacks. I let him wear his jeans as long as he sticks to collared shirts and dressier shoes. I’m working on the sport coat and he is actually considering it.


This was why I was so shocked to see a runway show featuring men’s fashions that had the models wearing the most outrageous and outlandish clothes I had ever seen. First off, I would like to find out how these designers got these guys into the clothes at all. Secondly, how did they get these guys to wear the clothes in public? I can’t get my guy into a pair of pants with pleats yet these designers got the male models into dresses.

 Seriously, a dress?

There was a plethora of really bad clothes, ideas and yes, even makeup. Some of the models had drawn on mustaches and a circle drawn around one eye like the little dog who is the mascot for Target stores. If these outfits were Halloween costumes you would probably have to ask the wearer what they were supposed to be. I actually felt sorry for these male models that had to submit to these horrible outfits as part of their jobs. So after looking at these extremely bad men’s fashions I’m as confused as ever.


I still don’t know what my guy would look best in and that is only half of the problem. The other half is getting him to try on some shirts and jackets. I think he likes it best when I just go out and buy some clothes, bring them home and if he doesn’t like it, I take it back to the store. I guess he has me trained well because this is usually what I do. Getting him to the menswear place to have a sports coat fitted is going to be a challenge, but I’m up for it.
