Maison Martin Margiela for H&M Men's Collection

Uh, uh, and ain't nobody fresher I'm in Maison, uh, Martin Margiela--Kanye West (Run this town tonight) 

Martin Margiela for H&M Collection hit the stores today and from looking at the collection we learned that the line exclusively consists of re-editions of some of the strongest pieces of the designer collection over the last few years. The visual campaign was shot by Sam Taylor-Wood and showcases eccentric, elusive, and highly influential designer pieces at more than affordable price points for fall. At first look into the entire men's collection, we here at The X-Stylez Blog can't get enough of the fused pieces and attention to detail. What's better than getting two pieces for the price of one? Ranging from $40-400 and the degree of designer difficulty that is fluent throughout the collection, fellas we are sure you're bound to find something you like. The Internet has been buzzing for months after the news hit of the collection. Some of fashion's most influential players opposed against the collaboration in regards to keep MMM exclusive which was a surprise to us because H&M is known for their mergers with top designers. We love that H&M has a way of providing designer looks for less *inserts applause*. Regardless of your take, you can't deny that MMM provided some great quality pieces at great prices.  

Take a look of the Men's collection below:

After looking at these 40+ pieces, how could you be having a bad day? Each piece is labeled with a unique tag to indicate the MMM season from which it originated, so when someone compliments you on your new H&M piece you can be all "it was inspired by fall '92 Margiela-ish about it" Let's face it: The Margiela for H&M line is just downright freakin' amazing and just when you thought you had nothing to wear, you now have plenty of pieces to chose from. I predict a sale out.

Male Celebs Get Dapper for GQ Man of the Year Party

Last night GQ held their annual "Man of the Year" party at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. Celebs were "GQ'in" it up as they hit the red carpet to help celebrate the magazine as they close out the year with finishing covers. After 12 months of dishing out a great publication to the masses, GQ sure knows how to throw a party! I've noticed the trend for the winter red carpets are focused on relaxed style with an emphasis on grays and darker color schemes. Check out the male style file below:

 Kid Cudi, GQ senior editor Will Welch and Chris Bosh
