What’s your outfit, soldier?
Blog Guy, I know you’re always making fun of bizarre fashion show outfits, but they can’t ALL be that bad. Is it fair for you to only show a designer’s strangest creations?
I guess you’re right. A few days ago I got a lot of traffic, and comments, on a post showing a creation by Pakistani designer Tayyab Bombal, which featured a model wearing only shoes and trousers.
I heard from the designer himself, who thanked me for showing his design and shared some of his other stuff with me.
As you can see in this combo shot above, Tayyab doesn’t ONLY create men’s clothes for The Shirtless Look.
For instance, there’s also the Red Vest and No Shirt Look. Close your eyes and picture Art Carney on “The Honeymooners.” “Hey there, Ralphie boy!”
Then there is this OTHER thing, sort of a half-shirt with straps. Tayyab tells me it’s supposed to represent the hardships of the Pakistani Army in war zones.
Now, that makes perfect sense to me. If I wore that thing in a war zone – or heck, even to buy a Big Gulp down at my neighborhood 7-Eleven – I guess I’d expect hardships as well.
