There's got to be something - i dunno - a less flashy transition for the average man. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying those designs are good or bad (although, granted, it's not my taste).
I just don't think we'll see anyone walking the streets with those designs any time soon.
Keep in mind, I think that about most women outfits at fashion shows too. Who wears them? I never see anything like the outfits in those shows out in public. Know what I mean?

Agreed. Then you look at women's clothing catalogs (e.g., WomanWithin) and the models look so giddily happy. I guess their presentations help move the merchandise.BobM wrote:Why do almost all these anorexic kids look pissed off? Picture 5 looks like he needs a serious attitude adjustment.

Why do fashion designers keep on presenting outfits very few men would want to wear? Why not instead design skirt suits and dresses more mainstream that are tailored to men's bodies? Those stupid presentations discourage men from pursuing clothing alternatives.
They don't present outfits very many women would wear, either. It's art, not practicality, and I think the purpose is to gain impact and influence that leads to follow-on commissions.JohnH wrote:...Why do fashion designers keep on presenting outfits very few men would want to wear?

I read somewhere that fashion designers prefer that their models not smile during the show. Their thought is that they want people to look at the clothes, and not the model wearing the clothes. However, I like most of you, do not care for the gloomy look of the models and feel that it distracts from the look of the outfit.
Lastly, many of us with who are chronologically enhanced, simply can't pull off the mid-thigh look like we were able when we had that young and rugged look. (My hat is off to those of you who can still pull it off!)
However, I think that these outfits could work on younger men as long as more coordination was given to the foot and legwear.
