thanks for the info diorling. i must say the chanel jewelry (most costume) is the equivalent of the vuitton logo bags ... anyone can "get" it their menswear, and your description, piques my interest. although when i think of their menswear, i keep thinking of brad k on the runway

I would die for a tweed trench but at the same time...That's not very masculine (read: wearable). I would loooove a more masculine ReIssue so I can wear it as a messenger, like a 2.99, a HUGE one. I dont know, the Chanel aesthetic doesn't translate like I thought it would...

I would love shoes and bags though, a messenger take on that new Chain bag (looks like a ball on 4 strand chain) would be fabulous.
I understand wearability, but being that i am gay with an effeminate body, wearability is something i never worry about, well not as of late. I do not care what others think, a tweed Chanel jacket would be a dream for me, along with the Chanel duffel. EEGH, imo, the whole masculinity/femininity value is overused. One can be as hood and thugged as 50 Cent/Jay-Z and still sashay-chante with his Chanel tote.

Was watching an old tape of shows today and the SS05 "Red Carpet" collection and they had a few male models on the runway, one in a fabulous tweed. It made my temporary obsession return with owning a light tweed jacket and thought of this thread.

I'm going to the Beverly Hills boutique and see if they can help me out. I doubt they transfer between stores though since its not an established collection is it? What are the chances of seeing this menswear if its not advertised?

Im sure they can do something for you.

Id love a classic tweed jacket in all black, that would be to die for. Id wear it constantly, with jeans and a white buttondown for evening, with jeans and a tee for daywear. It would be worth the money in my opinion.

Tell us how it goes.

What do you mean? Some (if not all) of it is shown with the women's collection.

AGGH, was that all? He only showed at most 6 pieces, im expecting a line equivocal to Dior Homme, i guess, in terms of amount of pieces that is.

you say it's like womenswear only made for a much larger women
how come when brad kroenig wears it, it's not so bad/obvious? i think it would show up on any man, model or not. maybe you need to be a larger kind of guy to wear it

I am a larger kind of guy...I normally take a 50 - 52eu which is like being a giant in fashioin. It just didn't fit right. Well, Brad is wearing the samples, which I wouldnt be surprised are actually tailored for the model...Also, he's Karls boytoy so if he looked bad in Chanel, how would that look?
