I'm certainly no fashionista, but even I think that this new look for guys isn't very marketable...
London designer Astrid Andersen has found a loophole to "No Shirt, No Service" caveats: a male crop top cropped so high, it also shows nipples. So it's sort of a shrug?
Crop tops for men: potentially more versatile than crop tops for women, as men are allowed to show belly and boobs. However, since disparate gender expectations tend to stunt creativity in the field of baring male flesh, the male crop top may never reach its full potential. Hats (and shirts) off to Astrid Andersen's men's spring/summer 2014 collection for this valiant effort.
I mean, sleeveless shirts for guys have been around for ages, but the shirtless-sleeves trend isn't going to work for anyone who doesn't have abs-of-steel.
And, let's be honest....if this look takes off, we're gonna end up seeing Simon Cowell sporting one on the new season of The X Factor and we all know what the world's response will be...
