Here’s a hint: When Thom Browne’s clothes start to look a little ridiculous on *Thom Browne*, it’s obviously time to start dressing like adults again. At the unveiling of Repetto shoes’ 60th Anniversary traveling exhibition hosted by Mo‚àö¬¥t & Chandon at the Max Lang gallery the other night, Browne in his trademark shrunken ensemble resembled nothing so much as the Frankenstein monster from one of those old-fashioned horror flicks, whose clothes fit him much the same way.
While the fabric and glen plaid patterns were beyond reproach, even artist/designer Tobias Wong seemed a little put off by the cartoonish cut of Browne’s jib—though we would hardly advocate the untucked tartan shirt look as a suitable alternative. Maybe we should have listened to Alan Flusser back when he branded Browne’s designs “the most irresponsible clothes I’ve ever seen in my 30 years in fashion.”
