Chokers are back — and not just for the ladies. Now the popular accessory is being made especially for men.
Even the scruffy Matt Lauer, better known for dapper suits, donned the man-collar on the “Today Show” Wednesday morning.
The anchor was lauded by his fellow men online, who called for more #MaleEmpowerment when it comes to accessorizing.
Social media users say the choker has sex appeal, too. One Twitter user said of Lauer, “WOW WHAT A DADDY.”
Chokers were one of the major women’s trends in 2016, but will 2017 be the year of the bro-ker? Retailers ASOS and Topman are both offering up varieties starting at $9.
The bigger question for men, though, is, “Would you actually wear a choker?” And, if so, where? The office? At dinner? To the bar for a drink with the guys? It seems unlikely, but, as the millennial saying goes, “You do you.”
