If you, like me, went to a particularly preppy college, or you grew up in a part of the country that counts boat shoes as a closet essential, then you've probably seen plenty of clothes with little whales and turtles embroidered on them. And not just for women, either--I've seen plenty of men in navy pants with tiny, red lobsters all over them. As he so often does, Thom Browne took those preppy tropes and distorted them into a dark, twisted menswear collection.
None of the bags got the all-over animal treatment, but a few of them were turned into real-life embodiments of those animals, including a couple wonderfully clever whale bags. If you (or your man) prefer things more straight-on traditional, Browne also showed a number of his classic doctor bags in different textures of inky black.
