See-through for men

August 28, 1991|By N.Y. Times

There was plenty of men's clothing on the fashion runways last week, but the real news was the attention on the chest, where bulging pectorals are in style.

Many of the models looked as if they had their breasts augmented, although the look was probably accomplished at the gym. Male models typically shave their chests before fashion shows, highlighting the area.

There is something strange in the spectacle of young stubbly-cheeked men with ultra-smooth chests strolling down a runway, absent-mindedly lip-synching the Doobie Brothers' "What a Fool Believes." (Whatever happened to the notion that hair was sexy? Probably doesn't sell clothes.)
