This stuff is too tame. If you want more clothing like this and far far more outlandish stuff, you must come to China. Here the young men have no fear. There is stuff exactly like in the pictures, but also leopard print overcoats, red fur collared tee-shirts, super pointy shoes made of reflective plastic, and red and white houndstooth bell-bottom suits. All made of fabrics that dare not speak their name at this forum and with brands like "Jon Paul Gaultier" or "Big Boss" or just "Versace". Most people in China deny the existence of homosexuality and our strict rules of taste are not obeyed there, so you are just one of the young dudes when you dress in this stuff. It makes International Male look like Turnbull and Asser, except it is in a much slimmer cut than either of those or anything you can find in the States. So if you are interested in starry night print shoes, a rainbow feather boa, or - perhaps more palatable - looking like you walked right off the Dior Homme runway, come to Shanghai and I'll show you the right shops.
