Thank You For Being A Trend: The Shirtdress


Though gym short cocktail dresses may be all the rage…somewhere, New York Fashion Week has a longing for length. So eschew your bottoms next spring in favor of a long top – a stylish man’s shirtdress – trending fresh from the New York runway. Here are the standouts.

Siki Im

Hospital frocks went haute-concept at Siki Im, who took blouses from the institution, prescribed a drop length to the knee, and discharged them to the street. We’re not sure why pajamas-as-daywear is still trying to happen, so keep it clean and chic in a solid – we vote white.


A savior to the waistline averse, Yohji Yamamoto began conceiving blousy ensembles for boys before most designers quit the playground – his latest for Y-3 is reliably sporty.

Duckie Brown

We never knew a halter-top sweatshirt qualified as a must-have until Duckie Brown debuted them the other day amid a strong collection of monastic buttondowns and trendy shorts-over-pants. Another New York trend of note: a luxurious desert palette.

Tim Coppens

This designer launched in 2011, so forgive our tardiness because we are now huge fans – linear modern shapes defy expectations by making these sacs feel architectural. In sum: want, need, now.

Billy Reid

Billy Reid designs for the every man.  Tunics and long shirts graze below the crotch and permit the less-daring to keep it untucked and to experiment with length: top it with a short jacket.

    Truly one of the ugliest fashion trends yet.

  • Kieran

    Whoever said that “in ten years we’ll all be chicks” is going to love this.

  • Elloreigh

    That would be a no, no, no, no, and no. Worse than a mullet dress on a woman. If this is fashion, then I have no desire to be fashionable.

  • iMort

    How do they make money on this? They should have hired an amateur Hippie to design.

  • mlbumiller

    shit! I am getting flash backs of the “man-jamies” I saw in Afganistan. Should i dig my set out of the seabag to be fashion forward?

  • Dixie Rect

    Hideous! All of it. It looks like some faggy religious cult.

  • MK Ultra


  • Dxley

    No, thank you. A guy in that shit would NEVER get to score me!!!

  • WhyteRabbit

    No. the billy reid collection isn’t horrible…. but, no.

  • BlogZilla

    Looks like brothers of Middle East kafthans

  • jwrappaport

    Good grief. I can’t decide what’s a greater fraud: modern art or haute couture. These literally look like rejected Star Trek costumes.

  • Polaro

    Sorry, make it stop.

  • DarthKitsune

    Once again, the black community has been ripped off by someone who proclaims this a new and exciting idea. These are based on Tall-Tees, which is so last year in the urban community that this new trend is just sad.

  • Vegas Tearoom

    OK, I am late to this thread, but dressing every guy like he is Bea Arthur, seriously? The tunic and pants are one step away from caftan and earrings.

  • SteveDenver

    Fashion can be such bullshit.
    Some of those pieces look like articles of medical scrubs, the one with no arms looks like what priests wear under their jackets, the grey one with Adidas stripes looks like womens wear.
