Well my bow ties, quite some time as passed since my last post, but what better time to stage a comeback than during my favorite part of the year, FALL!!! As I’m writing this post, the delicious scents of eucalyptus, bergamot, mahogany and cinnamon pumpkin are luxuriously caressing the air like silky chocolate engulfing a freshly made candy. And you know what that means?!?! B & B W (Bath & Body Works) had a candle sale and more importantly, fall fashion is here! Yes, I’m well aware that the Fall 2015 Menswear presentations have long since been done and gone, but unfortunately, I’m none the wiser as gentlemen everywhere are still lookin’ like a hot stack of potatoes mess!
And to my own dismay, I don’t hold them completely responsible for their dire fashion situation. What’s that you say?!? I know. But, looking over the Fall Menswear collections as a whole, there were some rather uh… extreme looks (if you will) that sashayed down the runway sending your average bow tie into complete and utter shock and confusion. Let me preface by making it clear to the fashionably challenged bow tie (who may have made their first venture at understanding fashion by starting with the Fall 2015 Menswear shows) that no. No. NO. No YOU DO NOT HAVE TO GO TO WORK WITH ALL YOUR JUNK OUT ON FULL DISPLAY FOR THE ENTIRE OFFICE TO SEE! I see you Rick Owens. What a relief.. for your junk and for my precious eyeballs. Whew, talk about a whole new meaning to the term “free ballin'”. There were other such extreme looks, albeit none that required such blatant nudity mind you, but extreme nevertheless. However, fear not, my bow ties. This is why my main rule for approaching runway fashion is crucial to your fashion success: ALWAYS (AND I DO MEAN ALWAYS) VIEW RUNWAY LOOKS AS SEPERATES… NEVER AS A WHOLE ENSEMBLE! Yep. That’s it.
Let’s see. From anorexic rock star chic to gaudy brocade and from motorcycle gang glamor to oversized accessories, trends were all over the place and unforgiving when it came to their extreme eccentric nature. But all is not lost my fellow bow ties, a lot of these trends are in fact, very wearable. Honest! Well, that is if you can identify them through all the fashion clutter first. Ha! My fashion faves for Menswear 2015 are coming soon 😉
