lanvin dudes pleats.

alber and lucas made me look real stupid. honestly 20 hours after damning pleats forever i was watching this video of the lanvin mens show in paris.

these dudes put tons of pleats in the fall 2010 collection. here are some examples of awesome looks with pleats. how wrong was I?

how awesome is this jacket?


  1. After looking at some older pictures of well dressed men in pleats (think robert redford and paul newman in "The Sting"), I think that in order for pleats to work well, you've got to have a high waist with a slightly extended waist area before the pleats begin. It elongates the waist and makes the pleat wearer not look fat by default.

  2. Mateo, are you trying to say that in order to pull pleats off, a man needs to have strong, child bearing hips?
