Remember a few years ago with that stupid rack dress? Is it white, gold, some weird looking Trump-shade of orange? Here is the latest trend to hit social media now… and this time, it’s for the men.

Out in Kohl’s stores now (and available online too), discounted at $79.99 plus tax, is this lovely suit and tie set by OppoSuits, catchingly named "flaminguy" — I love the play on words between flaming and flamingo. Dare to impress? Here’s some details (provided by Kohl’s) on the suits, there are currently nine designs available:

Men’s OppoSuits Slim-Fit Novelty Pattern Suit & Tie Collection

PRODUCT FEATURES:

Includes: suit jacket, pants and matching tie (If you’re going to have the jacket, you need the whole set too, to go with your fabulousness! Snap, snap.)

Jacket: padded shoulders, notched lapels, 2-button front, 5-pocket, long sleeves, regular-length jacket fits those between 5’8" and 5’11" tall (Padded shoulders to complete the whole retro-80's look; the rest to show the world, and yourself, that this is a legit suit… after-all, you can put a pocket-square in the jacket.)

Pants: flat front, 4 pockets, zipper fly with hook and button closure, 9.8-inch front rise, 13.75-inch leg opening, 33.5-inch inseam (Extra length for tailoring… that part is actually part of the description.)

FIT & SIZING:

Slim fit features high arm holes, slightly narrow straight body and tapered leg openings. When in doubt between two sizes, we recommend you pick the larger of the two. (Made for tall, fit men because you’ll need to be a big, athletic guy to defend yourself from the beat-downs you’ll be receiving.)

FABRIC & CARE:

Polyester (obviously something this fabulously tacky would be man-made polyester). Machine wash or dry clean. Imported (aka “Made in China”).

In a world where Facebook is the go-to for breaking news, The Washington Post and The New York Times are fake news, and the USA is best friends with the Russians… I guarantee you, you will be seeing this as the latest “hot trend” to hit the fashion world.

Buy it now while it’s only $79.99 because in a few days (possibly by next week, it’ll be out of stock, and someone on eBay will be selling it for $499.99 instead).
