    Nice resolved square-off between the powdery blue pants and the black everything-else.

    The key here, though, is the bit of decolletage…

    Wow, those are nice…and well creased. My Mother would be proud.

    Christopher Bailey worked a similar trouser palette for Burberry’s Prorsum line in his Spring/Summer 2006 offerings. However, he elevated the look with dark brown loafers, a geometric patterned shirt (think Anglomania at the Metropolitan Museum of Art), and a brown leather jacket. I have to admit that I fully support any effective use of color on a guy, particularly when strolling the streets of NYC often feels like wandering around the colorless set of the film “Sin City”.

    One of the best things about the 90′s above all was Helmut Lang, His clothes are truly timless and edgy and I thank God I bought a ton of it when I did!

    I think they look too much like hospital scrubs, although the cut and fit look excellent.

    Not good. Too much of a look, and an unattractive 80s one at that.

    … It also doesn’t hurt that he has a trim body and is absolutely gorgeous. The perfect match to those cyan-ish trousers.

    I love seeing men take bold fashion moves and it comes off looking so well.

    The world misses Helmut Lang! I remember those trousers… I went for the safer dark grey from that collection.

    The Helmut Lang shop in Paris is being converted into a Miu Miu branch.

    Like the look, but “vintage?” I love Helmut Lang and fervently hope he resurfaces as an antidote to that annoying Pee Wee Herman look floating being pushed down our throats against all reason right now, but when did Helmut Lang start doing a men’s line? 1992? 1995? If that’s vintage already, I want my Social Security check!
