I like Michael Kors. I really do. I love it on Project Runway when he compares various outfits to things that would be worn by the people he imagines to be the worst examples in the world, like drunk mothers of the bride or anyone working at Oktoberfest.

But I really don't understand what's going on here. I understand the pants, the shirt, and maybe even the bright orange coat, though I find it a little The-Wire-season-two. What I do not understand is the tie-dyed enormo-scarf that creates the appearance that he is wearing the front third of a caftan.
