I _________ Your Outfit!

You know how you go to so many blogs [particularly FASHION blogs] and the comments are like "I love it!" "Perfect!" "Beautiful!" "Amazing!"  "So inspired!" You know, just one gushing generic comment after another, and after one second a while you start to doubt the sincerity of the comments. Well when I saw this post yesterday, I couldn't believe how many people admired this outfit. But, I guess there are different strokes for different folks.

And now it is time for you to give your opinion about this outfit, because YOU GUYS never leave generic comments. You are honest.  You are entertaining.  You keep it real.  What do YOU think of this outfit?

I question his outfit.

cerebral e said...

also, I don't think this guy would get his plane right on time, due to delays getting through security (not only because his crotch may set off metal detectors)

Fashion, Art and other fancies said...

I, too, loathe those generic comments; They appear so fake....
Am not overly keen on his ensemble.
It suits him well, though.

I feel he does not take things too seriously and is able to laugh at his own ridiculousness!

WendyB said...

It's amusing!

God's Favorite Shoes! said...

I can't. I just can't!

Katy Mary said...

I think it's awful. I love fashion but I have limits!

Morgan said...

Kudos for individualism but huge slap in the face for taking your individualism somewhere it should not go.

Heather said...

Hey! Don't make fun of Paulie boy, he made this outfit himself out of grammas left over quilting scraps and saftey pins. At least he's being safe!

bananas. said...

oh yes!!! i effin love this guy for waering what he thinks looks good but instead leaves me baffled. i can't stop staring at his fly!!!!

i don't know whether to slap him for sporting a spongebob broach or high five him for having a smaller waist then me.

either way this guy is fiece. fucking heinous outfit but the tude is fierce so rock on bad boy!

bananas. said...

ps. 2 things...sorry for the typos and have fun on your vacation :)

Raina Cox said...

There are only a few places on this planet I can think of that this dude could show up and not get a beat-down.

creative kerfuffle said...

first i hate him because his waist is smaller than my thigh. second, i really hope he has good bladder control because getting out of those pants quickly would be impossible. i always wonder about people who can put something like that together and look in the mirror and think--wow, i look GREAT today! i think his "broach" is actually a pacman. i'd wear those sunglasses to an 80s party though.

L.A. Daze said...

Fugly. So every time he needs to go to the bathroom, he needs to undo all those safety pins?

I hate the majority of fashion blogs because some people wear the most awful things and people will just suck up to them. Or the blogger deletes bad comments. Or then write a whole post about how the blog is not for criticizing said blogger. And it really makes me wonder: do they really wear those clothes IRL, or just for the blog? Now there are some that keep it real, and I like those blogs.

Rita/Fighting Off Frumpy said...

Some folks have a chip on their shoulder; he prefers a tater tot.

Seriously, though ... what the what? He reminds me of a (bearded, white) Grace Jones ...

Dancing Branflake said...

Well, our responses are genuine because you are genuine. We are funny because you are funny. If are responses were lame then, well, I guess you could take blame in that. Haha! Kidding... kind of...

I am disturbed by his outfit.

tulpen said...

I'd totally piss my pants before I got all those safety pins undone.

I wanna see more of the tattoo on his right forearm.

Oh, and this outfit sucks ass.

Char said...

well...let's see - it's very 80's if that is what he was going for...and the glove is just stupid (as is the sunglasses). the jeans could be way cool but the girly peplum top is an 80's reject that didn't look good then.

Caroline said...

What's up with the weird Sponge Bob looking thing on his shoulder?

If this is fashion then I am totally out of my league here (I personally like Old Navy). Anyway...I do applaud his bravery to wear this in public. He is making a statement that's for sure. I won't judge if it's good or bad. Let's just say that he looks "different" *snicker*

Caroline said...

Oh...I think he needs to eat something...sheesh, he's too skinny!!!

georgia~gigi said...

Forget his outfit, he looks hungry! Stop spending your money on silly things and eat!
What is he going for on the safety pins on the fly?
I think people should express themselves however, so good for him :)

Katie said...

omg love it! (tss)

JKreids said...

douche.

Farah said...

oh my...did he get dressed in the dark? The whole ensemble, including tattoos, scream fashion victim. Poor guy!

Missy said...

I. Have. No. Words.

diane said...

This guy has waaaay too much time on his hands, haha. He needs to re-organize his priorities and stay the h*ll out of his sister's closet.

girlunwinding said...

Okay, before posting I went to the original post and read ALLLLLLLL about his outfit and. . . .
Quite frankly, I don't have time to pass people in the street and try to figure out if they are being "sarcastic" and if they "love cartoons". (the "sponge bob" is a cartoon trash bag, I am assuming from some well known cartoonist in some universe).
All I know is, he is trying WAY TOO hard. Tone it down plastic man, we've seen it all before.

Lorena said...

I have to say that I have "caught" bloggers who leave the SAME generic comment on all posts they visit ! How very lame.
This dude is confusing he seems to be wearing a woman's jacket and I am guessing his zipper broke.
But whatever his reasons are, he looks like he skipped from a phychiatric ward.

Martina Rosenberg said...

In my eyes it is distasteful.
Like as if he had been browsing one of these bags full of discarded garments and stuff for the used clothing and welfare...

Though he has a nice waistline.

For a guy :-))

Kitty Stampede said...

some people just try waaaay too hard. i appreciate originality but seriously...the safety pins make me claustro just looking at them.

and you TOTALLY cracked me up with the comments bit. SO FRAKKING TRUE. it's like just don't bother.

You're Lucky I Don't Have a Gun... said...

i fucking hate it.

also. Hollywood from the movie Mannequin called. he said to keep his glasses bc not even he would be caught dead in those today.

ticklishfromadistance said...

Ditto You're Lucky...
I mean wear it dude, just not around me or I will have to stifle and enormous gag.

Kristin said...

The safety pin fly is KILLING me!

Kaz said...

Aaaaaaw bless...poor misguided fashion victim

His waist looks soooo small. Maybe I need a top like that

Er, maybe not

vint junky said...

Ya know for a second i was actually thinking 'yeah, why not'... that is until i spied the LV fingerless glove...NOOOOO DUDE!!

I like eccentric dressing (hate beigeness!) But the LV just killed it...and not in a rad way

xxx

frenchie said...

yo.
i live in bloody London lady. i see this kinda of...forward thinking outfits everyday; yet i don't get used to it and know for a fact that peeps who wear them think i'm effing boring wearing jeans flipflop and tee. guess what? i kinda like that we'll NEVER mix!!

Ellie Grace said...

I hate every bit of it. Terrible. Just terrible.

Trixie said...

I'm wearing the exact same glasses!
No. I'm not.

Love that pac man ghost pin thing. Even though I hate video games. It's an odd outfit. But at least it's not boring

and flowers pick themselves said...

bleh. looks quirky for quirky's sake.

Orphin Lasz said...

Seems most people didn't like this outfit. At all.
BUT! I really like the shape that jacket gives him, like a small, girly waist... and that pacman accesory is adorable ; w ;
...I don't like the overall look that much, though.

Also! your headder picture is so gorgeous and funny! did you make it yourself??

Gabby said...

This whole thing made me laugh: him, his outfit, the comments on that post, and then your Ay Yi Yi comment. Hilare. I, of course, give him 'props' or whatever for being bold enough to wear this. I sure wouldn't. :)

Candice said...

I think that is the most heterosexual outfit that I've ever seen. This OOOZES manliness.

bravegrrl said...

i think it would be really hard to take a pee in your outfit!

K.Line said...

OMG, where do I start??? He's wearing a girl blazer - a midcentury-influenced-via-the-big-bad-80s, girl blazer like he's Peggy Olsen mixed with Jane Curtin from the Kate and Allie years. And the crotch thing is so "I want you to think I'm fetishy"! There are so many ways for that closure to go wrong.

Prairie Chicken... said...

safety pins on the crotch?

so homeboy is going to end up with a hellraiser pin penis? HAWT

ana b. said...

I think if he wore those jeans, and I wore a jumpsuit, we could have a Peeing Olympics and see who gets the deed done first.

十十f十 said...

hekkraiser pin penis aside, i like the look of the fly done that way, i'm serious. the top is reminiscent of the 80s or 90s; i like it but maybe more cos it's salient, from a past i'm a part of. i won't pair the top with those jeans. the wristback or whatever you call it thing on his right hand's quite nice, actually. i'd like to have seen his shoes cos they could save an outfit. i'm quite anal this way.

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Zippers on pants = functional and chic.

This dude = not going to like it in certain situations and those jeans will be gone.

Mad Max couture costumer dept called and said they didn't want the shades and fingerless glove so just keep it.

Sarah said...

The thing that gets me is that he so clearly tried to look that way. Spent at least an hour getting dressed, checked the mirror, did a couple of turns and thought, "Yep. That's how I want to look."

Georgina Dollface said...

All I can think is,"That guy looks like the inside of my kitchen junk drawer." I have no idea why. - G

The Zhush said...

Gotta admire his chutzpah? Right? And is it my imagination or is tattoo almost identical to my Chanel post from yesterday? Hmmm...seems I have something in common with this dandy! :)

Asylum Dolly said...

Whaa..?
The jacket is very effeminate, and gives him a womanly shape which is at odds with his head. The glasses.....i don't get. And the gloves are a little tacky....if paris hilton ever attempted to look "punk" she would probably choose that shit.

The main thing that disturbs me about this image though is that at first glance it looks like his head has been digitally grafted on to a thin womans body. Interesting as an image on a screen, but fucking frightening in Real Life i would imagine :S

And i just realised that his fly is done up with safety pins.What the fuck. What happens when he needs to pee? One word comes to mind: danger. He obviously likes to live on the edge.

I couldn't agree more about the generic "wow, i love it!" comments. It does seem so fake, and BEYOND unimaginative! People should say something of substance, or just not bother.
My comments are rambly and stupid, but hopefully entertaining!

Marsi @ The Cottage Cheese said...

Damn, people are such sheep, aren't they? Speak your mind people! Well, the outfit is original, but not in a good way. Those safety pins are in a dangerous spot. I foresee an unscheduled foreskin piercing in this guy's future.

Kathryn said...

First thought is that that he is mentally unstable as he couldn't decide if he wanted to go for - girly glam or guy goth grunge.

There is the kiddie type pin on one shoulder, the linen and leather ladies peplum top, with sado-masochistic looking jeans.

The saftey pins in the crotch sort of give him the male version of a chastity belt.

Is that a horse bit pierced in his one ear? Maybe he should hook up with that lady that likes to play horsey.

Christiejolu said...

Wow...just...Wow...

Shorty said...

To me it screams, Confused Flamer! So, I guess if that's the look you're going for... I won't follow his lead, that's for sure.

thelayeredpancake said...

beautiful. haha no...All I can say is I want to be bffs with this guy, because he's brave enough to put safety pins in his...you know...zone. he is mr.gaga.

Jill said...

I think it would be too much trouble to try to have sex with him...all those damn safety pins.

Kara said...

This just reminds me of that really funny commercial where that girl is wearing a blazer just like this and the guy at the desk goes "Where'd you park your delorean?". Got me every time.

Ebony said...

LMAO. I think you've got to be extremely comfortable/confident and a little ridiculous to walk out in that. Even more, you've got to have huge balls to go for the safety pins instead on zipping. Possibly literally and figuratively.

Heather Taylor said...

What the hell is happening at his crouch? Safety pins? That will be a bitch to undo when you really have to use the bathroom.

Sam said...

It's hilarious!!! The hilariousness of his outfit is only upstaged by his posture!!! Heee heee!

Pretty Little World said...

So, I'm late to the game on this one, but here are some observations:

1. He has a Chanel logo dripping with blood tattooed on his arm.
2. He's wearing a woman's jacket circa 1985.
3. I think he has a stuffed SpongeBob hanging from his woman's jacket.
4. He had really weird sunglasses to begin with, and then he broke off one side to turn them into a shiv.

Also, isn't it a problem having to undo safety pins to be able to pee?

I clearly have no idea what I'm doing when I get dressed in the morning, so I'm off to find me some sloppy clothes from the $1 bin at the Goodwill...

Krystal said...

wth

Alisa said...

I would love to see this guy walking down the street. Dang he's skinny!

asweetcakes said...

Eh...oops, queasy tummy queasy tummy. This is ridiculous, and so good to look at. He even managed to make the sane jeans look horrible!

GUGAW said...

i actually really like it, but mostly because i've got a friend who would rock this outfit so hard - check him out here
