Yves Saint Laurent Mens F/W 0304 Paris
Well... as far as I can tell (and in my own humble opinion) some congratulations are finally in order. While I'm not at all a fan of the shinier trousers, overall the cuts are nice and modern and there's more than one piece worthy of note. This is the best men's he's done at YSL to date, but with this collection and the one he did for Gucci I'm over the turtlenecks already.

He'll not surpass the success of Hedi Slimane at Christian Dior with this one, but at least Tom is finally bringing YSL men's up to par, even more so with this latest collection.

love it all of it ( the suits, the stripes, the masculine look) its only one total satin look at the bottom of the first plate that made me :? :x

what about the 'emerging' winter white for men?
seems like my favourite winter direction for 03-04

those new YSL belts are so great

Color me shocked! But really glad you like it so much, Lèna. 8)
I particularly liked the belts too although it seems like forever since I've done huge buckles. I'm still out on the winter white trousers thing for men.

Still it's really great to see so many options for men emerging. By far, this season has been the best for men in a long, long time if not ever. Of course never has so much emphasis and attention been given to men's collections though.

so true xopher, I wonder why were you schocked with my post though?
I'm a suit-for-boys girl, since some seasons now (always trying to persuade my male friends to dress with suits -not that I have much success yet :twisted: )

I like the leather coat & the belts very much. My boyfriend would the belts.

Not sure about men in white trousers - always make me think of John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever!!

Now this is menswear...to me, at least. I love the suits...particularly the beige pinstripe, and the navy blue velvet.

What is causing this return to formality for menswear?
