Yigal Azrouël's fall 2010 show included a number of men's looks, ranging from leather shirts and pants to drop-crotch sweatpants to asymmetrical jackets. The male models also wore their pants tucked into leather socks. So it's not your average beer-drinking, chicken-wing-eating, football-watching straight guy fare. "I think they should take a little bit more risk, otherwise it’s so boring — it’s the same thing over and over again, you know?" Azrouël said backstage after the show. A straight man himself, he had some ideas for women who want to see their straight male fashion-fearing significant others in more fashion-forward clothes.
"Have him try it. He doesn’t try it, he doesn’t know, but when they wear it once, trust me, they want to wear it again. It’s very effortless," he suggested. Perhaps Azrouël — who said he would wear leather-and-knit socks with his pants tucked in — was a little out of touch with this particular species of straight male. The kind of guy who walks into Odin and acts like a scared lost puppy facing an out-of-control garbage truck. So we turned to Miss J, who sat front-row, for answers. "I only come to see him because he’s so goddamn good looking," J confessed. He suggested starting the fashion-fearing man off small, with, say, a sweater. "Buy it for him, maybe," he suggested. But, we noted, that would not convince most of them that leather pants are a good idea. "Tell him no sex. No sex until he wears the leather pants."
