New York Fashion Week’s five day men’s-only celebration of shows, presentations and parties, wrapped up on Friday.

While there were definitely some solid showings from designers such as Todd Snyder, Tommy Hilfiger, John Varvatos and Thorsum, the week was not without its weirdos.

The shows showcased the brands’ Spring/Summer 2017 collections. Here they are ― we can’t wait to see some of these on the streets (but we’re not holding our breath).

  • The Gypsy Sport Show

    Gypsy Sport, designed by Rio Uribe, is known for its ruffles, crop tops and inclusivity, and Vogue eats it up. About its men's show this year, it said: "Pull those expertly layered looks apart... and there were pieces here that style-conscious girls and boys outside of downtown Manhattan will understand." Mayyyybe. But most American men aren't going to kick it in in a ruffled skirt, no matter where they might live.

  • Uri Minkoff's Trust Fallers
    To make a statement and (presumably) showcase how bendy his clothes are, Uri Minkoff collaborated with performance artists Ryan Kelley and Brennan Gerard to put together this dance -- models standing on blocks and slowly falling into the arms and onto the heads of other models -- what The Cut more accurately described as trust falling.
  • Jerry O'Connell

    Remember Jerry O'Connell? Woody Hoyt from "Crossing Jordan" and husband to Rebecca Romijn? His most recent honor was bestowed upon him by the Council of Fashion Designers of America to be one of its NYFWM Ambassadors because he "represents the best of American style." So if you were at any of the NYFW parties and saw a guy you sort of recognized from something but couldn't place it and he looked really happy to be there, it was Jerry.

  • Bill Nye And Go-Go Dancers

    It still always makes one do a double-take when Bill Nye shows up to a fashion show -- but the Nick Graham friend and collaborator has been a growing presence in the fashion world now that Nye can add "the bow-tie guy" to his resume.
  • Second/Layer's Shirt Pants
    LA-based streetwear brand Second/Layer is, as Complex put it, "hitting on every buzzy word/phrase/trend in menswear: genderless clothing, concert merch-inspired graphics, elevated basics." They're now breaking barriers in the angsty shirt-pants category. Just when we need it most.
