Happy Saturday kids.  Today we’re going to talk about Spring 2013 menswear collections.

Nope, we weren’t there.  We weren’t even invited.  We’re just doing this based on Style.com’s coverage of all the events (which was pretty thorough).

After spending a whole evening going through all the coverage, here’s our overall feedback:

  • 90% of the stuff we saw was whaaaat the fuuuuuck worthy
  • 10% of the shows were on point

We’re not going to talk about the WTF moments.  Let’s talk about the ones that were on point (in our humble opinion): Canali and Ralph Lauren.

Check out Canali’s collection on Fashion TV here:

Dope, right?

Check out our favorites from Ralph Lauren’s collection below:

To create Essential Style for Men, mix 2 parts petrol, 1 part secret agent, 1 part rock and roll, 1 part hip-hop and a shot of tequila in a shaker with ice and vigorously shake for 20 seconds. Pour into a martini glass rimmed with explosives and have a supermodel serve for all your friends to enjoy.
