    No he cannot because he is not hip.

    He's a short term fashionista designer with things that don't work long term in the real world, and he's an extreme one (FD) at that.

    2 cents...

    I don't see anything wrong with the cut of his suits, sweaters, etc. How wouldn't they work in the long run? It's also pretty fucking obvious he won't make a wedding gownsuit or business-ski suit for Brooks Brothers. Just my two cents.

    To me he looks like he just pissed himself and is really embarrassed.

    Don't get an attitude with me. Yes, these pieces are pretty bad and most of them unwearable. The more sober suits in person and worn in the correct size are just fine though. Need I refer to Get Smart's? I think that's quite enough evidence. Those repp stripe sweaters also seem pretty fine to me, as well his slim fitting oxford shirts. Simply put, I am not "drinking the TB kool-aid." I'm sorry I actually find something to like in his line. Speaking of which, what exactly is wrong with that picture besides the ankles showing and armbands? (And of course the sour expression he carries throughout the whole shoot.)

    Homophobic = unreasoning fear of or antipathy toward homosexuals and homosexuality.

    I fail to see how suggesting that this outfit is more likely to be worn by a homosexual man than a heterosexual man exhibits unreasoning fear of homosexuals. Please enlighten us.
