In fashion, there’s a fine line between seriously stylish and just plain weird. Runway watchers at Toronto Men’s Fashion Week, the biannual menswear extravaganza that took place last week, were confronted with quite a bit of both. The best looks included crisp, tailored suits with flamboyant details, like Garrison Bespokes boldly patterned blazers and Christopher Batess velvet tuxedos, as well as wearable, layered outfits from designers Andrew Coimbra and Koller Clothing. And then there were the avant-garde ensembles, some of which we loved—like David C. Wigley’s edgy, androgynous man-kilt—and others that left us scratching our heads (e.g. head harnesses, Dr. Seuss–inspired eyebrows). Here, the coolest and most confusing looks from three days’ worth of runway shows.
