The WORST men’s fashions: crapfest on the catwalk!


As a former male model myself, I have to say that… What? Oh, sorry, I’ve just been told that having my picture in my high school yearbook doesn’t technically make me one of those. How embarrassing.

Anyway, I was going to say that lots of readers ask me why real guys would dress in some of these outfits you see here from major international fashion shows.

Readers say to me, “Bob, I know you cover crap fashion better than anybody. Are all dumb fashion creations equally bad, or is there an actual bottom of the barrel?”
