Brooks Brothers S/S 2011 Preview

The Brethren have put up a preview of their S/S 2011 collection on various forms of social media.  What? You're not friends with Brooks Brothers on Facebook?  I like what I'm seeing so far, which is either the WASP superhero look or the tonal, sophisticated urbanite deal.  Who knows if these two opposite ends of the spectrum (playful or serious, exclusively) are all we'll see or if BB plans on mixing things up a little bit more.  Either way, it all looks promising.  I should also note that the shapes on all of this stuff look much more fit conscious than they have been in the past.  Or maybe all of the pants seen here are just Milano's.

  10. The check in that first frame is almost identical to one used by Timbola Everest with his E1 schniz for Daks.
    About 10 years ago.
    Still good though.

    Why don't you identify yourself so I can beat the bad taste out of your pathetic ass. Fucking clown.

  12. I would like to stick look no. 2 in my pocket and carry him with me always. He's like a bad boy Ken doll.

  13. Okay Patrick, there's no easy way to do this so I'll just come out and say it. It's your Mummy. Now I know I bought you those dresses and Ken dolls when you were seven so you wouldn't feel left out when your sisters played "make-over" and barbies but your sexual ambiguity and flamboyant bad taste have gotten out of control and someone just had to do something about it. Please know that this is very hard for me to say but, as your mother, I really think you should take my advice from before and kill yourself. You'll be making your father and my life a lot easier.

    Love (always),
    Mom

  14. These guys all look too much like preppie asshole Stan Gable from the 1984 flick Revenge of the Nerds.

    I couldn't wear this look without without worrying I'd get beat up by a guy named Ogre, and have my girlfriend stolen by some nerd.

    Besides, didn't everybody who dresses like this lose their trust funds to Bernie Madoff?

  16. Last anon, you're part of the reason that people who don't conform to *your* standards do end up killing themselves.
