What do you think of this look? It reminds me of my Oakley backpack.

Wow. It's just like everything else he's done before - but with a pointless and non-functional addition. Hooray. His theme this season may as well have been sham pockets on jackets... Perhaps I have an inherent dislike of minimalists, but I won't consider it an innovation if you can replicate it in ten minutes with a couple of old backpacks and a sewing machine.

As a fan of Helmut, I must say that I cannot support these strappy shirts with buckles and the like. I prefer his very clean, sharp, simple yet well made slacks and shirts.

Not only are these items not functional for me....they are ugly to me...certainly if you are able to pull this look off, by all means...just not for me. I am sure an audience exists for this for sure.

it's just like almost everything I see on the runway shows... absolutely unwearable.

Sorry, guys, but I preempted that whole "thumb-holster" thing in 4th grade when I poked holes just above the cuffs in my long-sleeve t-shirts and stuck my thumbs through. I thought it made me look tough.
