Pajama Themed Suits

I am very spiteful on starting a post with a question, but I have an enforcing urge to do so. What's up with the new trend on Pajama themed suits? Do all girls really seek to see their boyfriend dressed in this catastrophe? I'm stimulated by the originality and authenticity, but I've yet to be sold on the "idea" in general. I feel as if the formal business suit turns into an extremely casual mess. Pajama's are frowned upon if seen on the street; So why on earth would you want to visualize it at work?
Brands sporting this new fetish include D&G, Dolce & Gabbana, Emporio Armai, and Roberto Cavalli. Whereas I do admit that Dolce & Gabbana, the picture to the right, did it best. So in order from best of the worse to TERRIBLE...
1. Dolce & Gabbana
2. D&G
3. Roberto Cavalli
4. Emporio Armai
Although, I read that they also questioned this trend they were showcasing. Sadly, these are not usual designer brands I go against. I feel as if they wasted their entire spring collection on these pajama inspired suits. Correct me if I'm wrong, although I inquire that I stand with the majority of fashionisto's/ista's. If it is not for the "normal" group of people, buyers will most likely pass it by. I just feel as if we aren't ready for a trend of this extent to spread and men.style.com's Josh Peskowitz agrees.

So this is the first post of the new blog. I decided to change blogs all together because I felt as if I couldn't change what I've worked so hard to create at Fashion's the Word. I hope you enjoy my new blog and in a sense, new voice. Comment on the post and new site.

These suits are definitely not practical for work and I can't think of any other place where they would be appropriate. This might be taking the "just rolled out of bed" look a bit too far.

However, I'm kind of drawn to the one in the first photo....or maybe it's the model I'm really looking at...I'm not sure.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. Would you like to trade links?

Not really feeling this trend, but to be honest I think it could be toned down to work quite well. And good luck with the new blog!! I've linked you!
