As I sit here in my footy shorts and hoody – hardly a fashion icon – I’m not here to judge any of the fashion at this year’s delayed Met Gala, currently taking place in New York. Instead, as a fashion-adjacent man, I’m here to appreciate the confidence and creativity of the men walking the red carpet and the designers decking them out in Americana duds.
Held every year (besides 2020… obviously) since 1948, the Met Gala is a themed celebration for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. Normally occurring on the first Monday in May, this year’s event is themed “In America: A Lexicon Of Fashion”.
The Gala has provided many iconic moments in male fashion (cough cough Harry Styles cough), and after an almost two year wait, this year sure delivered the fashion goods…
