It may be impossible to imagine most living, breathing men in this world wearing most of what walks in the Milan and Paris Men's Fashion Weeks, but the shows sure are entertaining. With this in mind, here are twenty of the most ridiculous looks from the spring 2011 shows. In compiling these, the focus was on the clothing itself, not the lack thereof (see that slideshow here). Enjoy man lace, sheer shorts, crop tops, paisley pants, and more in the slideshow ahead.

Well, JWOWW probably sleeps in this already.
He must be hiding secrets in his pants.

He may need those built-in shin guards if he finds himself ... anywhere outside.

"Shake, shake, shake Señora, shake your body line.
Shake, shake, shake Señora, shake it all the time!"
He looks like he was grown in the trash, but hey, sometimes that works.
To think of all the My Little Ponies that lost their tails for this.
