MISS: Gant by Michael Bastian Fall 2010

Michael Bastian makes really cool stuff. Gant makes really cool stuff. So you'd think the two getting together would be really, really cool.

But the image above is laughable, right? I mean, here's an extremely high-end American designer peddling the full-laxedo I wore to practice for umpteen years. The collection is riddled with this lacrosse motif and, with the exception of his version of the Polo logo (it's now a lacrosse player instead of a horsey man), I think it's lame.

Bastian says this makes those who wear the collection "sporty." It doesn't. It makes them poseurs of the worst kind. Not only that, but hasn't Abercrombie and Fitch been doing the same thing for years?

Clothes don't make a guy sporty. Being fit and playing sports do.
