Hedi Slimane’s trousers from Saint Laurent AW2015 Menswear collection that seem to be cut from womenswear patterns unkindly asphyxiate the crotch. Hedi Slimane's runway might have more to do with the image than sales figures, but can clothing get any uncomfortable? Or all is fair in the name of the image you’re trying to sell? What’s your views?
