    I think most of you have already seen this collection, but for those who haven't/want to see it again, here you go.

    The dramatical Alexander McQueen brings villains of the past in his theatrical Fall 2009 collection, there's a lot of variety to be seen here, something for everyone. Much of it has a vintage air, so if thats your cup of tea you're in for a treat. Notable for me was the tan slash-pocket coat shown early on, that black knit belted coat that touched the ground, the mustard three button double breasted suit, the black rusted-look shirt, that entire industrial outfit and the last one which I'll keep a surprise [​IMG]. Yes, there was a lot this time around and a lot of it was very solid and surprisingly wearable.

    Here's what men.style.com had to say..
    In naming his latest show "The McQueensberry Rules," Alexander McQueen elided his own name and that of the nineteenth-century aristocrat whose title became synonymous with fair play in the boxing ring. And that set the tone for a parade of glowering tough cookies who looked like they'd stepped straight out of Gangs of New York. Kohl-eyed, clutching their silver-topped canes like cudgels, they stormed down the catwalk in tailored finery. It was a typical McQueen scenario: immaculately realized garments underpinned by a hint of horror movie (a leather butcher's apron transmogrified into Rollerball rig) and the promise of rough sex (muscles that stopped at nothing, for no one).

    And if attention must be paid to the coat in Milan this season, McQueen's took the prize. A half-belted number was the week's consummately sartorial piece, with, not far behind, trenches in tan or black leather and a frock with a floral silk jacquard spreading across its hem like creeping fleurs du mal. The designer paired such items with skinny-legged pants so as not to divert attention from them. Same with the extravagant knits, particularly the pagan artisanal wraps with kilt closings. As McQueen collections go, this one was remarkably coherent. Pull it apart, and there were plenty of desirable stand-alone pieces. But the suspicion lingers that he might be more diverted dressing the creatures of his imagination for stage or screen.

    some of the stuff is nice, some of it is just plain weird.

    overall, it has a strange communism-appeal

    Presentation is nice but I don't see anything that I really like.

    Also, Mr. McQueen is wearing selvage jeans.

    What's up with the skin-like crotch hugger? Looks like an old plastic toy without pants.

    Nothing I would actually purchase. Although that knit on the left, several pictures down, looks interesting.

    He just totally murdered (in a bad way) the Victorian style that I'm after, lol. But of course his detail is top-notch. I think the Women's Fall 2009 is pretty outstanding as well. Many of these outfits I think would be awesome, if certain pieces were left out...
    like the crotch piece, boxing gloves, and body armor... rofl. He should of had them all wearing clear shades / eye goggles too.

    And yea, THOSE shoes. Where can i find those fuckin shoes? (for under $300 please)

    Looks like the cast for a gay porn version of Oliver Twist. Good stuff.

    Tis the beauty of it, I'm pretty sure these are just show pieces (won't go to the stores) simply there to add to the theme, boxing gloves are wearable though (I dig em too).

    yea I know, but I'm saying that having it there kinda just ruined the whole thing for me, lol.

    btw. that tuxedo-vest whatever in the last picture looks insane. I wish someone made one for cheaper and without the tail
