    I gaze upon these sullen, wasted little sticks gazing blankly in the middle distance... and I can only pray to the sartorial gods that I don't look anything like that.

    I need to go eat 5-6 cheeseburgers stat.

    I mean, horrible horrible horrible. Does anyone - men, women, gay, straight, and everyone in between - find this even the slightest bit attractive? My only response - other than the cheeseburgers - is to cross Dior Homme off my list for good.

    You know, male sexuality is worth celebrating. Zombified cadavers of stick figures... not so much.


    Why cross dior homme off our good list because of the models? Your not buying the models your buying the clothes.

    the same sad world in which he is largely unappreciated. it is my suspicion that 2006-2007 he had the greatest goals per minutes ratio in europe. watch the man, hes a genious. do not listen to the critics. same people who were saying deco was crap before the euro for example.

    Im going to be buying my first suit this summer and since im Slim and have a European build I think I am going to go with Dior Homme since there other clothes fit me well. I want to know a) How is the Quality? b) Do they have more then the grey with penstripe suits? c) Im looking for something that I could wear for nice events and just out around town or to school. d) Do ou think I could find there suits at Barneys in boston or should I go to the Dior Homme store in New York? Thanks for the help.


    What´s a "European build"? Im really curious now - is that like a household expression? Being European Ive noticed that some american sf-members wear suits that look like tents but I thought that was the american way and not a way 2 cover up them being a wide-ass..... a body shape being unusual amongst educated people IME.

    When fashion trends go to their extreme limit, the trend usually comes to an end in a season or two. Think low-rider jeans for girls. A few years ago, they were so low they almost qualified as lingerie, and by next year the trend started to reverse. I mention this because the lapels on those Dior suits can hardly get any thinner. Menswear moves more slowly than women's, but I suspect we will soon start to see more designers going in the other direction. Tom Ford already has wide lapel suits, and he just won the CFDA award for men's fashion this year, so...

    I am a little bit sick of hearing and reading comments deriding people who are skinny or slim. Would it be acceptable if they were overweight. It reeks of jealousy and insecurity, obviously people with their own weight problems rip on so called skinny types, it's the same thing you see in tabloids, with the skinny vs fat celebrity articles.

    If you're fat, deal with it, put down that hamburger and do some sports, don't attack people who are skinnier than you.

    Some people are very tall and slim. and therefore skinny. It's doesn't necessarily means they are anorexic or sick.

    I know I get these deriding comments all the time, I am 6ft5, I exercise, swim, eat normally but I don't drink alcohol or eat crap like chips etc... Therefore I am slim/skinny, I have been like this all my life. It doesn't mean I am a sick person. Would you say Peter Crouch is unhealthy because of his appearance? He is a professional footballer i think his health is ok.

    People's insecurities about their own weight problems leading to deriding slimmer/skinnier body types is a little bit pathetic, guess it's the "in thing" to do and acceptable in this obese world.

    These guys on the pictures certainly don't look sick or unhealthy, they do have stupid zoolander stares though, I'll give you that.

    Am I? Please think about it, would this kind of comment: "Zombified cadavers of stick figures" sullen, "wasted little sticks" be considered acceptable if they were similar in tone and refered to people were overweight, or very short or of a specific race? I think it would be considered offensive.

    Anyway I am not trying to pick a fight with anyone, I am just expressing my opinion.

    I have a few dior homme suits and I am very happy with them. I would advise you going with a more traditional dior suit though. The traditional dior suit cut has not changed since Slimane, at least as far as I can tell. The traditional black suit would probably be your best bet since you want a suit for formal occasions or for wearing out at night and the cut is slim but not too slim. I have seen Dior suits in similar patterns and cuts as RLBL suits including navy and pinstripe. The standard suit is going to cost you $1800-2200 at least. The dior store in NY is fairly limited but has the black suit and has some navy and gray ones last time I was in. Anyway hope that helps.

    Just because some people are naturally thin does not mean that male anorexia does not exist...

    Dior Homme suits are high quality and if they fit your silhouette, then they are better than generic RL stuff.
