    They had The Row menswear for a short while back in 2009.

    The row menswear sound like Hermes/Berluti by Haider kind of thing.
    Maybe there's a market for them...

    I just don't get this brand.

    ^ Agreed. I lost them years after years with their womenswear so i don't have any expectations. The menswear's codes are so limited and they are already very limited in terms of fashion that nothing will be groundbreaking. I repeat minimalism does not mean boredom.

    I don't need another overpriced cashmere clothes, I am fine with Loro Piana. However I expect some good accessories from them. Their eyewear collaboration with Linda Farrow and Olivier Peoples are way too good:wub:

    I'd rather take a Miu Miu mens revival over this.

    Although I did like the shade against slogan t-shirts LOL.

    Ohh MiuMiu menswear was so good! Two of my favorite Menswear collections of all time were from Miu Miu.
    But no, not under Katie Grand.

    LOL at them saying there's not a lot of places for men to buy a great suit.

    I could do without this.

    I remember being obsessed with the model they cast for their first menswear cookbook....

    Pretentious and overpriced. With so many better brands, why would anyone settle for this?

    I don't understand why they sped into menswear territory without first working out any clear message for it, they might as well have been happy with womenswear alone.
    Their price points make one think that they aim at going hand in hand with Hermes and Berluti by Haider, but unfortunately they neither have the heritage of the former or the talent of the latter.

    Basic as hell. I was hoping this would look like what a menswear collection by Phoebe Philo would look like. The least they could have done is added some of the flourishes from the womenswear.

    While I'm not a fan of the collection and I agree that it looks super basic, I don't think it's interchangeable with Veneta or Zegna. This is much more anonymous, low key and relaxed in my eye.

    You have Acne Studios for that if i remember well...
    It is at least, IMO, the closest to Celine for menswear (and for women separates).

    Based on that mrporter link alone, there's absolutely nothing you can't find elsewhere at a significantly cheaper pricepoint. I mean, it's not like we're expecting them to reinvent the wheel, but this just isn't necessary.

    Thanks, Mary Kate & Ashley, for giving us something that nobody really asked for.

    maybe a few years ago but i feel acne has been a bit of a mess lately, you either get really boring stuff in mediocre quality or stuff that seems to have been designed for instagram in mediocre quality
    i'm not surprised their business is slowing down

    ^So true. I went to Acne last week and such a disappointment. Huge waste of my time. I truly wonder where men can go to have this Céline vibe. I like minimalist pieces but I need a twist, an edge. For a time I thought the Row could really bring something on the table but year after year I realised how dull this brand is.
