My MANy Bags Trendspotting #182

Below: This guy finally prove to me that Givenchy's SS2011 Stretch Leopard Print T-shirt does work on regular guys other than hunky latin runway models... He pulled it off!:-P

Givenchy Spring Summer 2011 Mens Stretch Leopard Print T-shirt

I never expect anyone other than those hunky latin Givenchy runway models (Good looking guys get away with anything) to pull off this Givenchy Stretch Leopard Print T-shirt. Leopard spots as a top is not to be 'trifled' with lightly unless you are blessed with dashing good looks and a fantastic physique:-)

This 'wild+fetish' animal print is usually associated with attention seeking queens and trannys. Coupled with stretch material, this Givenchy T-shirt means only the brave and the bold should only attempt this. In my opinion, it literally means no regular 'sane' male should ever try wearing it outside of the store dressing room.

That is until today after I saw this guy's pic.

He did it! I eat my own words... a normal 'person' actually looking incredibly chic and not trashy in this top:-)

I guess it is the way he styled himself. Pairing with a more 'gentlemenly' shawl collared jacket, simple chinos and a pair of eye-popping blue suede desert boots. This is the winning combination:-) Restrained and classic with nothing too overdone. Just the right amount of debonair to offset the brash leopard prints, making the pattern stand out and not overwhelm him.

Love it! Applause:-)
