Do Not Want: $455 Dolce & Gabbana Jorts For Men

I don’t feel like “Do Not Want” really even captures my gut-level reaction to these $455 jean shorts (jorts, if you’re nasty) for men. “Fuck no, stop triflin'” or “Get the fuck out of here with this nonsense” is more accurate.

Update 9/27/12: Following the controversy over these earrings, Dolce & Gabbana has given an explanation: the jewelry is “a reference to Sicily’s traditional Moorish-inspired artifacts.” Vogue UK explains, “The show jewellery is reminiscent of ornate ceramics that often appear in Sicilian homes, restaurants and hotels.

Pretty Pretty Panties

We’d love to give our sad drawer full of worn-out granny panties a designer makeover, but that would be fairly expensive. Thank God for online outlet stores, where we can find gorgeous, silk floral briefs that originally cost $130 at a fraction of the price. These aren’t just pretty and comfy-looking; no one would kick…

Madonna Gets Together With Dolce & Gabbana, Produces Sunglasses

Ah, Madonna. So elusive. So enigmatic. So impenetrable. If only she weren’t wearing those dark sunglasses all the time! Then maybe we would know her. Or perhaps not.

Is Pink The New Black For Men?

For the most part, men have three color choices when it comes to suits: black, gray, and navy blue. They’ve been able to expand their shirt and tie options from the traditional white, blue, white and blue striped, and white and blue checked over the years, and perhaps the increase in popularity of golf and…
