YOU’VE GOT MALE: Men’s spring ’11 trends

Rather than show you the looks straight from the men’s spring ’11 runways — and watch you run the other way — we decided to give our male readers the realistic interpretation of the trends. Why? Well, Gucci had its male models carrying overnight bags that very closely resembled women’s purses. The Calvin Klein Collection tipped its hat to bodybuilders in the ’80s with its half-shirts. And, Dior Homme’s models’ wrap shirts and sash belts had them looking ready for a karate match.

We figured you might appreciate a filter. Here are the top trends we expect you to care about. Some of them require a broadening of your fashion horizons (no socks with shoes), while others (backpacks and the nautical look) are already second nature. Enjoy.
