    HOLY COW. Everything is wrong with that picture. He looks like a castoff from that Lorenzo Llamas series "Renegade".

    I've long suspected that the International Male catalog is some kind of elaborate joke. I just can't see people wearing stuff like this or this or (god forbid) this. I'm sure they sell a few of these outfits to NBA players and Elton John impersonators, but I can't understand how they could possibly sell enough to stay in business (especially considering the cheap prices).

    Of course we know about it. Subscribe to GQ or Esquire or anything else that has anything remotely to do with men's clothes, and sooner or later, you'll get your very own International Male catalogue. I happen to think that this is a brilliant variation on the Regis look [​IMG] : [​IMG]

    On the plus side, if the guy in yellow spills his water it will just bead up and roll off of his shirt and tie.

    I've always felt it should be illegal for men to wear leather pants, minus some rock stars.

    Can you pair the Times Sq. leather trench with a double vented suit? Or does it call for a ventless jacket?

    I am really trying to go for the Financial analyst/Neo look.

    The gold on gold look harkens back to the days of the Solid Gold Dancers. I'll bet you a ten spot, the tie is stitched to the shirt and underneath the shirt placket there is a zipper instead of buttons.

    Now I know where washed up male models and B movie stars go to die.

    "You dress in the manner of a male prostitute" - The Sphinx, Mystery Men Clearly, this catalogue is intended for young hustlers and WWII german stormtroopers. I recently saw a fellow in Mid-town Manhatten wearing one of those leather coats. I wonder which of the two groups he was trying to emulate.

    Hustler, I'm presuming. I don't think it is a coincidence the leather coat is the Times Square model....perhaps one could wear it to a screening of Midnight Cowboy?

    Int'l Male is geared toward the flamboyant gay male demographic. The one place where you might actually see a bunch of men in those outfits is at one of the homosexual circuit parties that make their way around the country...NYC...New Orleans...Palm Springs...etc...

    I worked in SF for 7 years. My co-workers actually went to these things and shared stories you would not believe.
