New Ken Outfit? What Do You Think?



Saw this fashion today, and I wondered if Ken were getting some new fashions. Anyone see this one before? Ken wearing a graphic print. I think it looks nice if a little warm for summer. Then again, we're having a heat wave here so maybe it's just in my head. Anyone see this as a believable Ken summer outfit? The sunglasses are adorable.

This has been out for a couple of months. I love the sunglasses and sandals. I hope they come out with a couple more outfits. I need more male fashions.

I picked up this outfit up. I don't think this is a start of new clothes. It's part of the clothes that came out for Ken including the pink plaid tux.

My Walmart got this single one last May and I haven't seen another one since at any of my other Walmarts or any new Ken fashions in general.

Mine is still in the package and it took me a while to realize that it was a hoodie, not a scarf sticking out. I actually think it works for being on the beach on summer nights when it gets cooler.

LOL, I'm having this conversation as though a real person would be wearing it. But yeah, if you were the surfer type you might keep this in your duffle bag.

The shirt is awful. I wish I could sew. Ken needs a new wardrobe manager! Lol

From the photo, at first I thought the shirt was an off-the-shoulder design. Then I thought, “Mattel wouldn’t!” I searched for a larger photo and think that thing flopped to the side is in fact a hoddie (right?). I rather like the graphic design, and the grey in the shirt is nicely coordinated with the grey shorts. Overall a very sweet outfit and I will probably buy it if I run across it. I have a gay character who will love it. ;)

I bought this outfit earlier this month. No one has worn it yet. I think it's cute. I really like the shorts and the sandals. I can see it on the Kens and Ryans, who I use more as teenagers. Doesn't look great on my older guys.

Any new clothes for Ken is good. I love this outfit.

I purchased this in May! Leo is wearing it in the Sydney's Tryout video! I really like the design and colors!

Hello from Spain: I had not seen these clothes for Ken. As Ken has very few clothes any set is welcome. Keep in touch

Hi Georgia Girl, Dollz4Moi, Muff, Veda, Robin, Vanessa, and Patti! Thanks for your information about this outfit. I like the colors of the hoodie; the graphics? Depends on which part of the graphics you get - I would prefer the one to my left, our left looking at the photo. It has what looks like part of a person's face ...

Yes, Ken and the guys could always use more clothes. My older men would not wear it - too informal, too light, too much yellow in the graphics. Some of the younger guys, the teens or Johnny, the dollar store guy, might wear it.

I think of my guys as having general group traits and individual personalities. In general, my Kens and male fashion dolls tend to be more fashion conscious. My newer Joes are fashion conscious, also, but insistent on having "manly wear." The older Joes and the military action figures tend to be conservative dressers while the police, the villains, etc. vary.

Hi Marta! Glad to show you something new. And yes, Ken has too few outfits.

Hi Dana,
I haven't been lately at the stores - trying to save some money here, so I'm away from stores... - the outfit does look summery, you are right, not going crazy :-)

D7ana said...

Hi Barbiecafe! Good luck staying out of stores although they are having some decent sales, even though it's just summer. (Remember when summer was the boring time for doll sales? Sigh.) Thanks for commenting on the outfit.

Hi Anonymous of July 2, 2012. I rescued your comment from my Spam folder = that is why I am just responding to you now. Can I have the link to the webpage you mention? I would like to see this outfit on your Leo ;-D

Thanking you in advance.

Hi Ms. Leo! Yes, I remember that post about Sydney and her brother Leo ;-) I forgot what Leo wore. That outfit looks cute on him.

I suppose Blogger did not "recognize" your sign-in from your work computer - it probably picks up your unique computer number. (That's my off-the-cuff, low-tech response; someone else could probably explain the difference in more technical terms, wink.)

Thanks for providing the link that brought me that image.
