Look - Gaultier's Bold Mink Stripes

While I've been a strong proponent of bold stripes for spring, I never thought about bold stripes for winter. Jean-Paul Gaultier opened my eyes with this take on the his signature mariner shirt. In striking navy and white mink stripes, surely no sailor will go cold at sea, although the only men I can imagine wearing this are back-up dancers dressed as hulking sailors in a Kylie Minogue music video set aboard an oil tanker off the Siberian coast. Regardless, I love the tacky/luxe charm of it all, which only Gaultier himself could get away with.
