That's just a sampling of his latest atrocities. The prosecution rests.
I had a suit that looked like photo number 3, when I was 15, the summer after I grew 6 inches.
As a 49 year old, I have no desire to return to that look.
Those are highly stylized. If you take the time to browse a full selection of offerings, you’ll find much that is normal.
I have quite a few pieces from the now defunct BB Black Fleece line, including 2 suits, which fit quite well.
The second outfit looks like a dress.
Howard- I think the second outfit IS a dress.
As do I. The BB Black Fleece line - on sale (which was a serious reduction in price) - was great value and the fit - while slim - was not the exaggerated stuff shown on the runway or fashion books or wherever.
I have several BBBF cashmere sweaters which are the nicest of their type that I own (with great details like working buttons on the cuffs so you can roll them up without stretching the cuffs out). I also own several BBBF dress shirts which are all impressively made (tight weave, MOP buttons, serious stitching) - you can feel the quality.
I wasn't crushed, but was disappointed when that line went away. I often wonder if his advertising / exaggerated runway shows didn't cut both ways as it got him a lot of press, but also turned many potential customers off as I worked with several guys who wouldn't even look at his stuff at BB because of those ads, but I know they would have bought it had they tried it.
I liked the Black Fleece line as well. Though at retail, it was overpriced, on sale, I thought it represented great value.
If normal is the high point of his aesthetic, that's faint praise.
I did browse. At least at that store (Barney's Bergdorf?) it all looked like so much infantile rubbish to me. I know he's done finely crafted pieces in the past, and he's certainly a trendsetter. But he's tossed his cap on this attire.
