Those of you watching Men's Fashion Month may have noticed something familiar on the runways. You know that necklace trend that celebrities (and their moms) are overexerting at the moment? The one from the '90s? Right, so chokers are the accessory of the moment, and it looks like very expensive neck-stranglers are happening in menswear for spring 2017.

Between Paris, London, New York, and Milan, chokers found their way to the necks of pretty boys in pretty clothes. And what you'll see in the slideshow ahead is evidence that they invaded the pages of lookbooks, too. They came in all shapes, sizes, and colors: collars, bandanas (a lot of them), chains, and more. Of course, trends have no gender these days, which is what makes them so versatile and, in turn, extends their shelf life in your closet. But man, this '90s thing is really wearing itself out.
