Apparently - Gender fluid fashion elevates men's looks!

For all you fashion conscious Grampy's out there ….’s-looks-at-the-golden-globes/ar-BBRXotw?ocid=spartanntp#image=2

I've added 2 of my favourites- Grampy has a birthday coming up soon and I can see him in the cape , out walking the dog !!

Is it wrong to say I like my men to wear a well cut suit ?

No not wrong at all N&G we all have our preferences. I don't have a problem with a bit of flamboyance at an event like that, why should women have all the fun. I really can't see my husband going for it though, he is definitely a casual dresser.

Gender fluid is fine, but these creations are just awful, why would anybody choose to wear them.🤔

Both are young and good looking so I expect even dressed in a sequined teabag they would look fashionably cool 👍

Bridgeit Tue 08-Jan-19 17:27:39

Yes you are probably right, I’ve turned it an old fuddy duddy 😀

The man with the pink lining looks as if he's about to break into a dance routine, Louie Spence style.

I can see those going down a storm on the tool aisle at B & Q.

We are off on a cruise son. That looks just the thing for DH on Gala night. 😁

MawBroon Tue 08-Jan-19 19:25:18

Do they get their own aisle then Chewbacca ? grin

Chewbacca Tue 08-Jan-19 19:37:06

Wearing clothes like that Maw? Yes!

Jalima1108 Tue 08-Jan-19 20:03:58

Ooh, love the jewel-encrusted cape!

What is the second picture supposed to be? Most peculiar.

Chewbacca Tue 08-Jan-19 20:10:27

I think it's a nod to bondage Jalima. Or Tyrolean lederhosen.

Jalima1108 Tue 08-Jan-19 20:11:52

I think it would look better with shorts Chewbacca

DH has quite nice knees, considering his age grin

EllanVannin Tue 08-Jan-19 20:21:28

Okay on Liberace or Danny la Rue.

NanaandGrampy Tue 08-Jan-19 22:14:02

The second one lost me with the no sock look !! Lol

I don’t mind a bit of flamboyance but these made me giggle - not the effect they intended I suspect ! 😁😁😁

NanaandGrampy Tue 08-Jan-19 22:15:01

On second thoughts , that second one looks like he’s wearing reins you used to see on toddlers ?

He’s young but not that young lol

MawBroon Tue 08-Jan-19 22:18:44

I remember posting this last year I think.
Oo la la!

My dear late husband would have laughed his socks off at these. Then add that he'd rather stick pins under his eyes than wear them.

The 'beautiful people' have always pushed the boundaries of taste and style and they probably get these clothes loaned to them. DH is a very conservative dresser always to be found in black trousers and shirts if not prompted to find another shirt. If I didn't buy his clothes he would be naked.

Grannybags Wed 09-Jan-19 15:51:06

If you bought him Mawbroon's outfit he might start buying his own Teetime!!

Would that be a reference to a BDSM harness, on the second guy?
I have no problem with flamboyant clothes on anyone who wants to wear them. The more the merrier.
(Less keen on BDSM stuff, tho.)

Helennonotion Wed 09-Jan-19 20:56:52

NanaandGrampy, I suspect you don't mean this style of well cut suit? I think its been a little too well cut on the leg! I cannot keep a straight face when I see a man wearing a suit like this and yes there are many nowadays! Mainly quite young men, thankfully! I'm not sure which is worse, The lack of socks or the cropped trousers! shock

MissAdventure Wed 09-Jan-19 21:22:43

I quite like that look.
