Ladies and Gentleman,
It’s my pleasure to announce that this Fall, something very exciting is happening for the male gender. Fitted leather jackets, boots, and dark denim are going to hit hard. That’s not the exciting part. The reason I’m so pumped for all of this to happen is because these things don’t contain rhinestones, studs, or anything of the sparkly sort. Fall is bringing back “the guy’s guy” and it’s about time! I’m thinking James Dean…or Brad Pitt in the motorcycle scene on Benjamin Button. Pardon me while I melt.
Nothing is more entertaining to me than to see guys acting tough while brandishing a sparkly skull on their chests, or a rhinestone tiger face on their back pockets. Pull that V-neck down a little lower and I can see your belly button. And I get it, Ed Hardy and Affliction told you that if it costs $100 or more, it’s trendy and awesome. It’s not, and you just spent a hundred bucks on something your little sister could have bedazzled for you.
Luckily, the frilly phase is over and guys can go back to fixing cars instead of their hair. PacSun, Guess, and Urban Outfitters are already distributing men’s attire that can’t be mistaken for women’s, so retailers are on the right track. If you want some good visuals, check out GQ’s Fall Trend Report. Remember guys, change is a good thing. Embrace it.
Write you soon,
