Well, that and the mis-matched socks, pink basketball ... Good grief! why do the designers do that? Is it asking too much that they present the goods in a way that the outfits look like something a man would actually want to wear?!

Yeah, minus the shoes and mis-matched socks, that's a pretty handsome outfit...

It's almost like the designers said, "uh oh boys, it's starting to look too normal, better throw on some ridiculous shoes!" :roll:

With those shoes you will never miss a ball when playing soccer. The guy may need that because his legs are not really the legs of a soccer player.

My first thought was the guy wanted to walk on water.

Not my cup of tea or my mug of beer.

Spot on Frantastic and that is quite likely where the inspiration arose.
Lets face it the footwear is no more bizarre than a lot of the stuff that is out there already.
As for the suit, in a different colour, I'd wear it in a heartbeat. At the likely price I would expect a few options.
Al, do you know who the designer is?

I'd wear a suit in that colour. The footwear is ridiculous, of course, and I don't much care for the hemline of the skirt but other than that it looks wearable enough.

I found the source of that outfit. It's the least silly of the collection. Apparently codpieces are in again.

This is why I say I'm not into fashion.

Style, or design, is another thing altogether.

What on earth was anyone thinking when the created those socks and what looks like rugby balls for shoes?

No self respecting bloke that I've ever met would wear shoes like that, let alone those socks with them...

The rest of the outfit looks fine, no issues there...

Maybe that's the point--to make the rest of the outfit look normal.
