Because sometimes boys don’t always suck

by Simerjeet Sahota – Ohio State University

expert from Simerjeet’s blog fashion rehab.

First and foremost I’d like to take the time to apologize for not posting in like two weeks, but I got really caught up in the 50th anniversary of JFK‘s inaugural address.  No, not really.  I just haven’t had anything to write about.  Seriously – crazy writer’s block over here.  But thankfully, either as a cause of or result of the subzero temperature, I had a brilliant idea to cover men’s fashion week…..kinda.

I wasn’t really going to cover men’s fashion week.  I was actually going to just let it slide by because honestly, I don’t really care what boys should be wearing.  Men have literally two options I feel like: suits (yay!) and not suits which includes jeans, kakhis, sweatpants.  And all the non-suits get the woman’s fashion treatment – i.e. men’s fashion tends to mirror woman’s fashion which really doesn’t ever translate to real life (See: tucking boots into jeans, giant man bags, neckerchifs-sp?)

But then I thought two things: 1: I Iove wearing men inspired outfits (reading that last bit over just doesn’t sound right but, you know, I’ve already typed it….) and 2: why not take some inspiration from the boys? Then I thought holly hell it’s cold and finally, I thought, am I only excited about this post because I can’t get Jessie J’s (who?) “Do it like a dude song” out of my head (why God why do I love horrible music)?  While I get my life together, click through the pictures.  And don’t forget to check out more collections on style.com.

Burberry Prorsum Thoughts: (None because its Burberry Prorsum. My mind is instantly blank when I see anything from this label because yeah, I’m in love) Then I thought, holy man bag, batman. Conclusion: Color is great! Orange and green are totally balenced out by the grey. And holy hell I want those pants.

Jean Paul Gaultier Thoughts: Is that a gun or are you just happy to see me? Oh…it’s a gun. Conclusion: Um its suit? A FANTASTIC one. No conclusion statement necessary.
