New on the Runway: Pec-Revealing Crop Tops for Men

Croptops

New look for next summer? NY Mag writes:

London designer Astrid Andersen has found a loophole to "No Shirt, No Service" caveats: a male crop top cropped so high, it also shows nipples…Hats (and shirts) off to Astrid Andersen's men's spring/summer 2014 collection for this valiant effort.

    Typical. Something fun and unusual to wear on the Runway ONLY – but to be laughed at uproariously if ever seen on the real street. (And that goes even for my super gay neighborhood of WeHo wear “GayWear” is practically the required uniform.)

  2. Zlick says

    Heheh, never try and type “where” before GayWear while your mind jumps ahead to “wear.”

    I need something to come along and stop the tank top trend. Nothing looks more ridiculous than a group of gay guys walking around all wearing the same kind of shirt.

  4. Not that Rob says

    @Jesse

    Yeah cuz when guys are all wearing tshirts they just look ridiculous.

  5. TONEZ says

    This kinda saves all those guys who pull their shirts up behind their neck at the club some time. OR this is also a great way to show your body off at the beach and not burn your shoulders haha

    I’m a long way from being a prude and love new and different things, but……I would hope that aside from the Nedick’s stand in Coney Island any other restaurant would ask him to cover up. Don’t want to see armpits during dinner either.

    Pec-culiar. I just can’t keep abreast of fashion these days. This will send nipples throughout the entire industry!

    LMFAO.

    on the one hand: YAAAAAAAAAASS. where do i buy mine??

    on the other hand: i think this can only worsen the epidemic of men sporting huge upper bodies and spindly lower bodies.

    This is a knockoff of existing Fetish wear. It’s been around for a while. (Most “new” designs come from existing trends in underground culture. I’ve noticed that many designers are just in the business of popularizing not creating)

  10. says

    The men’s couture designers are getting more desperate all the time! Clearly they have run out of ideas and are grasping after straws, more often than not from the fetish catalog. I wouldn’t be caught dead in most of the stuff I’ve seen.

  11. Blue says

    No one likes this–because they realize there’s no way in hell they could possibly wear it. Love pecs and nipples.

    Sometimes models don’t always like the clothes you make them model. Look at the expression on that young man’s face.

  13. scott says

    and with snowpants/whatever-the-hell-those-things-are… they look odd. However, if they just threw sorts on him, he’d look REALLY slutty then.

    Great for the club, not much else.

  14. Yaoi says

    So they’re copying Japanese video game clothing styles now? Final Fantasy XIV has had that same exact shirt since before it launched 3 years ago.

  15. Bill says

    Can we get them at a deep discount to use as part of a Halloween costume?

    It might be useful for go-go dancers too. Imagine those on a guy with shoes and a jock strap.

  16. northoftheborderguy says

    some chooch will wear that thinking he looks amazing.. and of course, some Gina will be all over it.

  17. Rexford says

    I see this being featured in a future Undergear (International Male) close-out, sale catalog.

    “TONEZ,”

    I AM FROM THE GENERATION IN WHICH MALES PULLED THEIR SHIRTS UP BEHIND THEIR NECKS BECAUSE THEY ARE HOT-AND-SWEATY. YOU YOUNG MALES DO NOT APPRECIATE THE SEXINESS OF MALE FUNK BECAUSE Y’ALL ARE OBSESSED WITH BODY-SHAVING. THE MUSKY ODOR OF A HAIRY MALE IS DEFINITELY WORTH THE EXPERIENCE.
