Um. We need to talk about the men's fashion on The Bachelorette.

To catch up on all the Bachelorette Australia 2019 recaps and gossip, check out Mamamia’s recaps and visit our Bachelorette hub page.

Last night on Australian TV, something monumental happened.

In the space of half an hour we saw a man with luscious long blonde hair pose completely naked with a bunch of grapes and then wear the sh*t out of a leopard print neck tie.

On any other season of The Bachelorette, a man with braids in his hair and a tight three-piece plaid suit would’ve been the greatest cocktail party outfit of the year… but Angie Kent’s season is different.

Fashion icon Ciarran made a bold entrance to the mansion. Post continues below video.

It’s special.

And the fashion is out of this world.

Gone are the days of a standard black or blue suit, like what 110% of the men in this photo from Sam Frost’s season are wearing:

If the current crop of bachies are anything to go by (well, except WAZZA who couldn't even handle a chicken outfit), the attitudes that limited men from wearing anything but a black and white tux or... a hoodie are on their way out.

This year we've got men who are clearly not only comfortable expressing their personalities through fashion, but revel in it. And we're not just talking about fashion icons Ciarran and Timm with two Ms, either.

There's plaid. There's floral shirts. Velvet, white, burnt orange and red. PINK SHOES. At the third cocktail party there was a chic as hell lavender blazer and a very on-trend pistachio suit.

Plus long haired angels Ciarran and Timm definitely have matching earrings, which warms our hearts.

We applaud the Bachelorette wardrobe department, for sure, but we also have to acknowledge how wholesome (and honestly, refreshing) it is to see so many men willing to take fashion risks. To wear something that's 1. maybe out of their comfort zone, 2. representative of their unique personalities or 3. a god damn leopard print neck tie.

Also extra shout out to Timm, who matter-of-factly answered "I do have eyeliner on" when asked.

Smashing harmful gender stereotypes one cocktail party at a time.

Technically not a fashion moment but also somehow the greatest fashion moment of all. Image: Network 10.

So long, fragile masculinity. Hello, tapered pants and leopard print everything.
