For his new lad-focused BBC show, Man Lab, the TV host presented his own line of menswear at the recent Graduate Fashion Week. It's a lark, of course — but May is not without purpose or ambition. He tells the Telegraph, “I woke up one morning and realised that one of the problems with being a middle-aged man — of being a man in general — is the tyranny of fashion. I can’t stand the need to be fashionable. I know this will come as something of a surprise to you, but I spend a great deal of money on clothes, and I just make them look really sh**." Indeed, James, indeed.
Attempting to completely revolutionize the fashion world (or bring an end to fashion), May worked with students to revamp a standby familiar to anyone whose idea of fun is an afternoon in the garage: boilersuits. But these are no mere boilersuits. These are runway-ready, modular, formal boilersuits you could wear to a funeral. Rather ingenious, if a bit naff.
So, will you advise your man to chuck his wardrobe in favor of one of May's designs? Wait, no. You don't have to answer that.
