Guys: Hear This Out

On the heels of the men’s shows in Milan, WWD polled the experts on what not to wear, and the results are wholly unsurprising. It’s nice to hear, though, that menswear designers (all male themselves) , are as heavily against shopping at Express men or Ed Hardy as I am. Read on for their well-respected professional opinions.

Giorgio Armani: “Jackets are the backbone of men’s wear, so when you buy one, make sure it fits properly. Just because it is a piece of tailoring doesn’t mean it is a magic wand. A badly fitting jacket—however expensive—will look awkward.”

Dean and Dan Caten, Dsquared: “Buying a suit—and thinking it is a tracksuit! A suit is to be tailored, sharp and smart, not big enough to do cartwheels in.”

Tom Ford: “Button your jacket. It takes 20 pounds off your silhouette.”

John Varvatos: “Square-toed shoes. They are an outdated style that can instantly make any man look bad.…I can’t tell you the number of women who have told me that a man wearing square-toed shoes may have just lost himself a second date. Shallow? Maybe. True? Definitely.” {editor’s note: oh em gee, please no!!! You will lose that date! We look down first.}

Brunello Cucinelli: “I prefer a man not to wear bracelets or rings. As a general rule, simplicity is always best.”

Viktor & Rolf: “Men traveling with matching designer luggage—that just ain’t right.”
