love all that draping and the weird exposed seams. would totally take that white suit with raw edges, and maybe that olive jumpsuit thing.     also heck yeah, Vans!

I wish I could wear drapy stuff now and then, but it makes me look fat and ancient. We must all accept our limitations.

I am doomed when the fashun pendulum swings back that direction.

Love the styling with the Vans old skools.

Wanna get those wide legged beige and black pants too.

Mens was mostly an afterthought and at times really unoriginal. frown.gif

For my money, FW12 is still his most solid menswear presentation, followed by SS13. FW13 had some nice pieces (coats) but felt overall inferior in its use of proportions and while I appreciate the return of more voluminous trousers in this SS14 collection (though paradoxically, my favorite look is probably the white suit w/ raw edges + black tshirt) overall it does look pretty uninspired and somewhat stiff and clunky compared to the womens part of the show. It's alright though because womens is great, especially the more expansive silhouettes (looks 9,10 and the last five ones), I think he's at his best when he works with those kinds of volumes.

think he liked fw12 as well. this men's jacket from ss14 looks like it was adapted from a woman's jacket he did in fw12. cut and details (pocket shapes) differ, obviously, but the basic idea is there (he loves those breast pockets. they turn up a lot)

Cut of the pants is really similar.  Any of the below could easily be Raf (all yang li)
