Pics from the Milan menswear shows continue to roll in. The Caten twins' consumer-friendly collection for Dsquared2 is bursting with punch-drunk Caribbean colors, normal-dude jeans, and slim jackets; they even threw a bone or two to the ladies. Moschino, meanwhile, is all over the taste map: Some of what Rosella Jardini does is so right-on (that rainbow piping, this knockout coat); other looks — like this neon peace-sign getup — seem better suited for the GTL hamper on Jersey Shore.

While you're busy clicking through our fashion galleries and not working, check out Gianfranco Ferré, whose collection incorporated loosely belted trenches, mandarin collars, floppy hats, and peep-show netting; Ermenegildo Zegna, all buttery-leather coats and linen pants (plus the odd, unwelcome turtleneck); and Paolo Gerani's Iceberg, which presented 49 looks in approximately 49 shades of gray, including some icy-cool ombré effects, subtle polka-dotting, armloads of cropped trousers, and a murse or two.

Also not to be missed: Salvatore Ferragamo's chunky knits and big toggles; terrific sweaters from Pringle of Scotland; Neil Barrett's graphic slashes and asylum whites; Etro's paisley-crazy showdown; and what may be the season's most covetable men's wardrobe yet, courtesy of Trussardi 1911. Nothing too fancy here: just simple stripes, oxford shoes, Southwestern flair, and arguably the world's most appropriate leopard-print jacket for men.
