I liked some of this show, but the whole leopard print thing is just absolutely terrible in my opinion. especially the shoes. and the worse part is the mixing of the nova check or whatever it is called with the leopard print on the bags. However their smaller bag was interesting and i liked the waxed cotton and leather cabans. Also of course great coats.

Agree about the leopard print. On women, it was somewhat unusual.
On men, it is anachronistic and seems to harken back to a time when hunters put animal heads on their mantles.

I agree to some extent. however, a touch of animal print is very chic. What makes it not so good is that there is too much of it everywhere.
I still think Christopher Bailey is a genius!
Leopard skin is anything but unusual

Its actually very usual on women, I guess you missed that, but its a newly minted classic. So it makes zero difference if its everywhere or nowhere. Like stripes. And who cares what cavemen did or didn’t do. If you go that route you will be second guessing everything. If you buy a purple coat do you worry you look like a big blueberry from Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory? I hope not. Then no need to worry that leopard will make you look like Fred Flintstone. Everything could remind someone of something, and none of it is worth worrying about.

I totally agree! Leopard print on men is just one step too far!
January 14, 2013 at 5:08 am
No its fun its a variation on a never ending theme, Christopher Bailey has taken fashion to a new level recently he gets better and better, his sense of color, proportion, texture & ensembles, even though they are out of the ordinary are perfectly wearable is pure genius, CHAPEAU as the french would say………..

Nicely tailored coats but I prefer the creativity and color in the Jonathan Saunders and Alexander McQueen collections for Fall 2013.
January 13, 2013 at 2:35 am
Not a big fan of leopard print especially in large doses, kinda gets overwhelming for me…but I did like the shoes from this collection.
January 13, 2013 at 2:54 am
I’m such a big fan of Burberry but leopard for men? Really?

WOW!!!LOVE THE FIRST COAT AND THE SHOES ARE SUPER COOL TOO!:)
January 13, 2013 at 3:07 am
I like that collection and pics. Looks nice but only that leopard coat I didnt like. Have a nice day.
January 13, 2013 at 3:17 am
I just absolutely LOVE Burberry! The rubber coats were my favourite! Especially the transparent!
January 13, 2013 at 4:02 am
Love the coats!! Beautiful!
January 13, 2013 at 4:03 am
love the bag!
January 13, 2013 at 4:13 am
Otherwise fine but if you’ll pardon the pun, leopard print still says cougar to me.
January 13, 2013 at 4:27 am
@Scott:I wonder what’s your opinion on leopard. Few posts ago you bet few men can wear it.
January 13, 2013 at 4:48 am
Totally agree with you, the coats are great and the purple one is really cool, but the leopard thing may be a little bit too much.
January 13, 2013 at 5:08 am
The only one I don’t like is the leopard one, but I love the rest!
January 13, 2013 at 5:22 am
Oh come on, animal print is so over! But the burgundy and the purple coat are fab! Love strong colours for men.
January 13, 2013 at 5:26 am
Horrid, Bailey has gone stale.
January 13, 2013 at 5:45 am
The coats and shoes are amazing!
January 13, 2013 at 6:10 am
Love the shoes but the Leopard is a bit too Gangsta for me. The purple coat is ridiculous. The green jacket is wonderful. Overall too cold, crisp and severe.
January 13, 2013 at 6:23 am
Leopard and Burberry traditional checks!
January 13, 2013 at 6:47 am
The leopard print is for the runway. I doubt if you’ll see much of it in the stores
January 13, 2013 at 6:55 am
I really don’t like the animalier print on men, for the rest this is a great collection!
January 13, 2013 at 6:56 am
mm! these are just plain awful (and sad) if you ask me.
January 13, 2013 at 6:57 am
We are the robots…..
January 13, 2013 at 7:02 am
The studded shoes look amazing though not a big fan of those leopards.
January 13, 2013 at 7:16 am
AMAZING! I applaud Christopher and his team at BURBERRY! This show was sensational. Before I go any further I would like to address the haters regarding Leopard print for men – “Why not?”. I personally think the print is refreshing! I absolutely love the accessories and will be getting the chain mail shoes, The Leopard Lense Sun Glasses and an animal print hold-all.
From the moment the show started with the skyline of London and the chimes of Big Ben at midnight until the final walk-through I was completely captivated. Thank you Christopher, you have once again impressed and enthralled me.
January 13, 2013 at 7:30 pm
Really? Does anyone have to explain why they don’t like something? Do you need to explain why you like the leopard?
(BTW, I think I did explain why the leopard didn’t appeal to me.)

I’m in total agreement with Wayde. Just wish I could have seen the show in person!
January 14, 2013 at 5:10 am
YES YES YES I TOTALLY AGREE
January 14, 2013 at 6:25 pm
Thanks John & Bridget…
I also want to point out how striking the animal prints (Leopard and Zebra on pony skin) are with BURBERRY’s Nova Check – Those bags are absolutley to die for. Maybe this is a timely comeback into “African Inspiration” in menswear as it has well and truly had its day on the women’s wear side of things. Christopher is a genius and has remixed the prints into a very classy and upbeat collection – Love!

Its House Check!

I’m not sure about men wearing leopard too but the sunglasses look reaaaally nice!
January 13, 2013 at 7:56 am
waiting for all the football players to grab the animal prints. it will end up cheap and tasteless
January 13, 2013 at 8:06 am
for men’s fashion it looks like a big step forward but on the other side the clothes are so similar to women’s fashion of the last season that it appears not very interesting. Madrid Street Style http://madrilicious.com
January 13, 2013 at 8:22 am
A touch of leopard is fine and fun.
Yes to leopard printed shoes.
A coat and a bag : no.
January 13, 2013 at 8:32 am
Surprisingly enough I like this leopard print – on the runway – not sure how it will translate to the street. Reality has a tendency to render animal prints unpalatable. One must process with caution and a lot of skill to pull it off. It is a whole new world for men, so they have an even harder job of pulling it off. But this could be very interesting to watch.
January 13, 2013 at 8:42 am
Si je vois un garçon couvert de léopard…je m’échappe !!
January 13, 2013 at 8:48 am
The coats are amazing.
January 13, 2013 at 9:03 am
Burberry has completely ripped off Acne’s AW12 heart print :(
January 13, 2013 at 10:00 am
kudos to christopher bailey for pushing men’s fashion outside of its comfort zone! fusing the novacheck with the animal prints will give so many men the courage to wear something other than the uniform drab blazers, skinny jeans, and combat boots or alternatively, the quotidian slim cut suit.
January 14, 2013 at 10:09 am
It’s called HOUSECHECK, not Nova. They stopped doing this check. Just thought I’d let you know.
January 13, 2013 at 11:08 am
The studded shoes are pretty cool and I like the idea of the purple coat…but rubber? Bet it makes weird squelchy sounds when you move…
January 13, 2013 at 12:40 pm
This is how I would like to look ALL the time.
January 13, 2013 at 1:14 pm
I think that the bag is the definite highlight – great mix of the animal with the classic Burberry print…
I’m thinking that it would work mighty well for both men or women.
January 13, 2013 at 3:13 pm
To be honest, I don’t like the shape of the longer coats or the leopard print. I have seen small amounts of leopard work for menswear, but not in this collection.

As they’re styled here, the looks feel forced, overdone, and a bit awkward. But I think that most individual pieces could work well for some people (I’m thinking louche rock & rollers or progressive-minded folks with otherwise pretty classic styles), especially once those pieces get some wear on them.
January 13, 2013 at 4:14 pm
All but the olive drab of these coats have an incredibly striking resemblance to the fashions seen on Sundays at Black churches. I’m not mad, Black church ladies have a lot of style.
January 13, 2013 at 4:20 pm
all but the shorter of these have an amazing resemblance to Black church lady fashion – I’m feeling a direct lift from contemporary Black church lady looks. Can’t say it’s unbelievable as Black church ladies have serious style!
January 13, 2013 at 6:54 pm
i love how a few posts back there was talk of a bet between scott schuman and garance dore concerning exactly what is up for debate within these comments…..it will not end soon, but i think there will definitely be more fashionable men up for the challenge, especially with this collection providing more creative options!
January 13, 2013 at 10:09 pm
January 14, 2013 at 11:59 am
Love the detailing, although I think the all over animal print is too much, a hint of it is stunning!!
January 14, 2013 at 6:52 pm
The green coat is great! I like the bags. I think the leopard print is refreshing on men and agree with the comment “why not?”. If I saw a man walking around in that giant leopard coat I would be stunned into smiling and definitively pleased. How exciting and groovy. I’m not a big fan of Burberry, but I think this is cool.
January 15, 2013 at 3:32 am
I like that they are putting leopard or animal print on men’s wear, but I would have loved to see it more refined. This is just a bit too much for me.
January 24, 2013 at 7:35 am
what else can you expect from burberry porsum though, christopher bailey has always put a rock and roll edge to his porsum collections i feel the animal print is something differnt for men its bringing back that 1980s rock look with a sleeker more classier feel i say men should embrace it.
