You know what I like when I see a stuffy suit ? A touch of cool and unusual here and there whether it be in the cufflinks or tie/bowtie or in a punky haircut or something. As long as they don’t look like a used car salesman, I’m good.  So, boys….. check out Retro Classy Cufflinks for cool cufflinks that can make the worst suit look awesome! My son would go ape sh*t for the Star Wars legos. Speaking of, we had a Star Wars marathon at the house, which entailed of every damn star wars movie there ever was, homemade Star Wars gingerbread cookies, and of course, putting together a Star Wars lego battleship. It was pretty intense.  By the way, Ewoks RULE! Miss Darcheen has some Ewok in her,  methinks:

Right?!

Claire Michel, a student at The Royal Academy of Art in Antwerp, unveiled these designs for a project. I did some heavy duty research ( I googled her ass) and found that there are over 7 million results for ‘Claire Michel’. So, naturally, I said eff this. I don’t know much about her, but her work stands for itself- Part deranged, part pre-school craft projects, part hoodie. This pretty much what I wear when I have to brave it and clean the toilets. I mean, you don’t want all those germs up in your face. I do like the ombre sneakers , though. At least this isn’t as bad as this dude’s collection.

This season’s Viktor & Rolf show was spectacular, as usual. Taking inspiration from menswear, particularly men’s dress shirts, each piece maintained a feminine quality, while displaying masterful techniques with the common dress shirt. Maison Martin Margiela should seriously pay attention to Viktor &Rolf and see how it’s done. That last dress totally belongs in a museum!  That’s a lot of cufflinks to shop for! I would take one of each and wear that to a boardroom! Brill-i-ant!

No, really , it’s like there’s a board in there. You can always rely on  Maison Martin Margiela to bring on the most ridiculous ideas to life. Not only is this FUG, but it’s not very practical. The only upside to this is the fact that you can wear this as a new eatin’ dress to the Home Town Buffet. You’ll never have to loosen your belt of unzip your zipper! Also, this gives a license to not remove the cardboard when you buy a new dress shirt. Besides that, I, too, would cover my face with my hair in embarrassment.

Starstyling has knack for outrageous styles throughout the years. Anyone that can glitter-up a burka is A-OK in my book. I see hints of rave wear in their collections. I just got a flashback of a teenager with a pacifier and glowstick (that’s not me, although it could have been, once upon a time…!). That fifth photo makes me want to take a snuggly nap in that top. It’s so cozy mozy! I’d wear that on a red-eye flight and brave all the stink-eyes.Check out their site for more crazy stuff.
Lena Hoschek nostalgic designs are perfect for those afternoon yodeling practices and  picnics in the lush Austrian mountains. I love this in every way! Fraulein never looked this hawt! Ya! I’m digging the suspenders. It’s so professor-like.  By the way, in the last photo, has Fraulein lost her shoe?? Is that why she’s the only one smiling. That’s a great shot if it is… I’m keeping my eye on Lena- love the mix of classic and menswear.

This is some very gruesome couture by British menswear designer Katie Eary for her Spring 2010 collection. If someone wore this on October 31, I’d think they are the bomb! But if they wore this on November 1, I’d think they’re a lunatic. Why are my eyes drawn to the fur? Fur on a man is like heels on a baby– not right!  You have to appreciate that it’s anatomically correct (I assume). Sort of like this be@rbrick. If Chewbacca were a pimp , this Gold Ghetto Chewbacca would be beyond perfect. Check out Katie’s website- I actually love the union jack trousers and the British guard look. Hawt!

Tomorrow is my most favorite holiday ever! Why? Because it’s the only day in the year where no one points, stares or laughs at me! Sooooo………Happy Halloween!

Good God- What IS this? I rarely comment on menswear because I think when a guy looks too put together, it doesn’t look right. Don’t get me wrong- I think a caveman- looking dude is gross. But, I like it when a man just throws things together with an accessory that may be cool, like a fat wallet. Seriously. No, I’m kidding! This mess above is by Frida Ringstrom. She’s Swedish. I think she designed this collection for men who like to get beat up on the street. Why does this remind me of Nuni from Saturday Night Live? Apparently, her previous collection was inspired by Road Kill. Lovely.
