The Fall 09 Menswear shows have come and gone and what we have left are some amazing collections and several hideous looks from each one. For women, menswear is basically just an extra season from their favorite designers because we all wear men’s pieces anyway.

The Fall 09 Menswear shows have come and gone and what we have left are some amazing collections and several hideous looks from each one. For women, menswear is basically just an extra season from their favorite designers because we all wear men’s pieces anyway.

If it were up to Givenchy, you’d all be in capes and leggings by the time the leaves started to fall. While I think this is a very nice look for women, I’d prefer to not see a dude in sparkly knee highs.

Alexander McQueen kills it with finely tailored suits but will the butcher look become the next hot trend?

I don’t know anyone that thinks this look from Comme des Garcons was a good idea. No leopard print buckle flats for guys, ever. Especially not paired with a hideous skirt and little top hat. Jean Paul Gaultier jumped on the skirt wagon as well and made an equally silly look, including the afro which was supposed to represent how he dislikes racism by pairing it with a bondage skirt and playing Clash songs. Hmmmmmm.

John Galliano’s signature pirate look is back and in full force. It is baffling to me that anyone pays good money to get his pieces but he must be doing something right after all this time, no? Maybe they work if you just completely separate them from each other? Anyone willing to adopt the second look head to toe automatically wins at life in my book.

Ann Demeulemeester can do no wrong and her men are ideal specimens of what looks good. She is consistent with such perfectly put together collections and it’s no wonder you can find her best friend Patti Smith outfitted in her suits and garments at all times.

I’m not normally that big of a fan of Gareth Pugh on the right guy these could look really, really good. Minus the horrendous boots, of course.

It takes a certain kind of man to pull off these Gucci looks. Morrissey fans need not apply due to the leather and fur but it looks hot regardless, especially on the young looking Mick Jagger on the right.

Rick Owens says he doesn’t want men to look stupid so with this collection his motto was “don’t be a dick.” Giant antlers worn around the neck is something I could get into and his leather jackets are always perfection but do you think he succeeded with the not looking stupid part?

    That one Ashton Kutcher next to Alan Tudyk as Jack the Ripper is just wearing a costume from Hostel Part II with epaulets slapped on.

    definitely the dr jekyl dude, the rest fail

  4. buttfuxx says:

    I’m still waiting for some edgy bradley nowell-inspired pieces.

  5. SHITCOCK says:

    A REAL MAN DOES NOT WEAR CLOTHES LIKE ANY OF THOSE PICTURED.

    THOSE CLOTHES ARE WORN BY THINGS THAT GET FUCKED BY REAL MEN.

  6. SHITCOCK says:

    FOR CLARIFICATION HERE IS A QUICK CHECKLIST OF THINGS, IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO CHECK ALL OF THESE OFF THEN YOU ARE A FUCKEE AND NOT A FUCKER.

    [ ] – I HAVE BEEN FAIRLY COVERED WITH BLOOD THAT WAS NOT MY OWN (ANIMAL, HUMAN, MENSTRUAL, WHATEVER.)

    [ ] – I CAN START A FIRE WITHOUT A LIGHTER OR MATCHES. (THINKING YOU COULD PROBABLY DO IT IF YOU TRIED DOES NOT COUNT, WIMP.)

    [ ] – WHEN I DRINK, I DRINK A LOT, BUT AM NOT SOME KIND OF PUSSY ASS BITCH ALCOHOL DEPENDANT CUNT.

    [ ] – WHEN A GIRL WENT TO KISS ME AFTER I CAME IN HER MOUTH I DID NOT EVEN FLINCH. (IF YOU GAGGED AFTER YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO CHECK THIS YOU FUCKING TWINK.) (GAY MEN SUBSTITUTE RIMJOB PROWESS.)

    [ ] – I *HAVE* TO TAKE CARE OF MORNING WOOD OR I CANNOT GET FUCKING DRESSED PROPERLY. (YES PENIS SIZE DOES COUNT FOR MANLINESS, ALL THOSE GIRLS WERE LYING TO YOU, TINY.)

    [ ] – I STAND AT THE FRONT AT CONCERTS AND DO NOT USE EARPLUGS UNLESS I AM PERFORMING. (IF YOU HAVE NEVER PERFORMED ON STAGE GO FUCKING START A BAND RIGHT FUCKING NOW. HERE’S A NAME FOR YOU, “CHEESE ON CHINESE FOOD”. YOU’RE WELCOME.)

    [ ] – I TURNED A “LESBIAN” STRAIGHT. (YOU PROBABLY NEEDED TO DO THIS BETWEEN 15-25, OR YOU’RE GONNA HAVE TO SOMEHOW BEFRIEND YOUNG LESBIANS AS AN OLD FART. GOOD FUCKING LUCK WITH THAT.) GAY DUDES SUBSTITUTE TURNED A “STRAIGHT” GUY GAY.

    [ ] – I WOULD NOT BE CAUGHT DEAD IN THE CLOTHES PICTURED IN THIS ARTICLE. IF SOMEONE TRIED TO DRESS MY CORPSE IN THEM I WOULD GET UP OFF THE MORTICIAN’S TABLE AND STAB THEM IN THE FUCKING EYE WITH MY RIGOR-MORTISIFIED COCK.

    YOU KNOW FOR A SITE WITH A OOZE-FILLED VAGINA DENTATA FOR IT’S LOGO YOU GUYS SURE PUSH A WHOLE BUNCH OF PUSSY-ASSED METEROSEXUAL BULLSHIT.

  7. streetcarnage says:

    I don’t get it. Where is the cynicism? Where is the overblown sense of self-importance? It’s almost as if this streetcarnage post was made by an actual human being. I just cannot process that.

  8. douche says:

    this is unameriqan

  9. Jen says:

    Shitcock: It’s really interesting you think wearing a nice suit is somehow horribly wrong and “faggy.” Glad you feel comfortable enough to announce just how much of a “real man” you are in the comments of a Street Carnage post though. Congratulations.

  10. M says:

    I really don’t think any of that stuff other than pic #3 falls under the umbrella of nice suits.

    Stick to women’s fashion, Jen, because you’re utterly clueless with regards to mens.

  11. idk says:

    xcuse me jeans and teeshirts and vans with holes and navy with black and unbuttoned sweater vesters: take a hint. Alexander McQueen will make your life better. OK you can see the Gangs of NY influence but when you are going out and want to make those pussies quiver get in a suit, match your belt to your shoes, wear cufflinks and iron your shirt. God, it’s so easy.

  12. jeniswrong says:

    !!!!!

    No man would ever wear any of this shit.

    If a guy wore any of these outfits or even parts of them he would not get the time of day from a human being with working genitals.

    Gay or straight.

  13. jeniswrong says:

    troll?

  14. whiners suck says:

    dang Jen, you are really growing on me, I think I like you now

  15. SPECIAL says:

    nuuiuhh, ignore all that shit coz’ I AM SPECIAL!!!

  16. SPECIAL says:

    could we have shitcock writing pieces for SC? his all caps stupid style becomes interesting. but we need a mugshot and a background.

  17. perfectstrangers says:

    …is this a joke?

    yr telling me that people all sit in a room and watch these twinks walk on a stage with the clash playing and pout and pose and twirl in little pirate costumes and NOBODY FUCKING LAUGHS? anybody who makes or is interested in “serious” mens fashion needs to take one giant step back and think about truly hilarious these pieces of shit look.

    (i know a female string cheese incident fan who made all her pants look just like that last guy)

  18. vegan jules says:

    stop the leather!!! Seriously, you look stupid if you wear leather. In fact, you are stupid.

    The devil look and the Ann Deulemester one’s are cool though. I’d rock those if I had the time, or the wardrobe designer.

  19. SHITCOCK says:

    I NEVER SAID IT LOOKED “FAGGY” I SAID IT MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE YOU OWN ONE OR MORE HOLES THAT PENISES SHOULD GO INTO, RATHER THAN OWNING A PENIS ITSELF.

    IT’S GREAT THAT YOU FIND WIMPS ATTRACTIVE, MORE POWER TO YOU. BUT YOU NEED TO ACCEPT THAT FACT AND STOP PRETENDING YOU LIKE MEN.

    WHAT I’M SAYING IS YOU’RE BASICALLY HALF-DYKE.

  20. SHITCOCK says:

    OH ALSO: I BASICALLY AM ALREADY WRITING FOR SC, THE DIFFERENCE IS I’M DOING IT FOR FREE. LUCKY THEM.

    ALSO VEGAN JULES; I HAD A DELICIOUS, BLOODY STEAK LAST NIGHT. IT WAS FANTASTIC. HOW’S BEING RETARDED WORKING OUT FOR YOU?

  21. SPECIAL says:

    shitcock, good boy.
    let’s handicap the vagan vegan

  22. Capt. Obvious says:

    Now, instead on Vane$$a, we have this shit bag commenting on his/her own posts. Great

  23. vegan jules says:

    when you order a steak, you create empty stock for which they place another order. Hence they place an order to kill another cow. Funnily enough, this requires that someone has to slit a cow’s throat as the cow approaches him in a “(dis)assembly line.” This causes severe trauma for the person who has to do the killing. “Stickers” have one of the highest turnover rates of any job. They become disturbed, violent, and abusive people. It’s funny how eating a steak is a “manly” thing to do in our culture. I don’t know what’s manly about having someone else kill for you, let alone an animal that did nothing to you, and has it’s own right to carry out its life, and live its purposes.

    Anyways, there’s so much shit in that steak, you’re doing as much harm to yourself as you are the cow. You think those cows get no justice? Where would be the fairness in that?

  24. stereo rectal steroid says:

    can someone please tell shitcock to stop shouting?

  25. Bryan Alvarez says:

    No buys.

  26. Ugly says:

    Thank God for JC Penny’s.

  27. world war Drew says:

    Shitcock is right. vegan jules is a lil’ bitch.

  28. SHITCOCK says:

    VEGAN JULES ALL THE LETTUCE AND CARROTS YOU EAT WERE INNOCENT AND DOING NOTHING TO HARM YOU EITHER. YOU HEARTLESS PIECE OF SHIT.

  29. Legal Tender says:

    Jen is the farthest thing from Rock N Roll. Fuck this. Wear the same tight ass jeans and t-shirt you’re wearing right now, floss it with some accessories from Romania and go have a tonne of fun until there are stains, sweat and blood all over your clothing — wash it only a few times to preserve the character. Now that you have your clothes, be clean. Don’t touch your hair in the morning. Wash your hair with shampoo rarely, but rinse daily. Cut it yourself. Clean your cock and balls and under your foreskin if you’ve got it. Drink whiskey. Don’t smoke too much pot.

    Dudes will admire your commitment to having a fun life and “not giving a shit”. Women will admire your commitment to not giving a shit and not trying too hard to not give a shit. You are rock n roll. Be aggressive in the sack. You are a man, not some fairy parading your fashion sense to the world ie: this post. You do not want women like Jen, they haven’t been in sustainable relationships for a reason. You want a woman that is creative, interesting, beautiful and knows how to hang with your existing buddies (not hang like “brah. bro, dude, man” but hang, hang…the real kind). These kind of women will be attracted to you, hopefully you’re not a dick.

    If you want pompous, self centered, pre-madonna, elitist, bitches who think the lack of originality in fashion shows is “like really awesome, and the next big thing…stoked” then by all means try to dress like these twinks. They’re getting a lot of pussy becuase they’re fucking handsome models, not because they’re wearing these rags.

    Shitcock’s list 1,4,8 — good shit.

    Fags.

  31. Books & Backpacks says:

    Too much work.
    Shelalegh?

  32. perteps says:

    so anyway i clicked on this post and was digging on the importance of being ernest coat and then got to the comments and started reading shitcocks words and then saw what the anti leather peeps had to say and realized that without a healthy dose of self-awareness and maybe a dash of humility we all turn into dipshits….

  33. vegan jules says:

    anyways, fuck you guys. Shit cock thinks he’s any different from any of the wall street dudes out there to kill on the market, as long as you perpetuate the “predator” attitude your just going to have a world where we’re all fucking each other over. It’s the same in every country and across the world. There’s swathes full of morons just like you, in fact virtually everyone in any major western city. And you have to spend 400 billion a year on your military to defend yourselves, when half that amount over ten years could end world poverty, hunger, homelessness, and illiteracy.

  34. vegan jules says:

    Dear Shitcock,

    One day we’re gonna live in Paris!

  35. Big Mike NY says:

    Fuck ALL (said ALL) this shit

  36. […] I’d never call myself a faithful follower of global fashion, I’m barely fashionable as it is and am only lucky enough that my long-time aesthetics are somewhat in vogue (hooray late aughts Indie trend… now I don’t look quite as out of place).  I’ll have new shots up from tonight’s Prototype Trunk show at The Fabric Lab tomorrow, on my flickr and cross posted to xrocksthespot.  Thankfully, most local designers are a bit more tasteful than the big boys… […]

  37. bilbo says:

    fourth one down on the left is some euro fruitbasket’s idea of what bronx gangstas must look like.

  38. miss appalachian says:

    i have crush on legal tender.

  39. […] little busy but regarding the menswear shows I wrote a post for Street Carnage the other day on the good & bad styles . Ann Demeulemeester was obviously my personal favorite and my husband was into most of the looks […]

  40. Jakobi says:

    I am always a fan of Junya Watanabe as well.
    I mean, does it always have to be monotonal?

  41. vagan jules says:

    I lick male tits for breakfast

  42. Danielle says:

    I also have a newfound crush on legal tender.
