New year, new… things? While 2016 saw the rise, and fall, of douchebaggery, 2017 has already put a twist on a 90s staple. Introducing the man choker. What has made quite the stir since its recent introduction on ASOS, no one quite seems to know what’s happening. GQ wants to put a stop to it now, and this morning, Matt Lauer unbuttoned his shirt to reveal one on the Today show, saying, “They’re late to the game. Because guys, I have been wearing a choker for years. I’m not kidding. For years.” Whatever’s going on, at least the year’s kicking off with a laugh. But if you’re, um, into it, ASOS is offering them in velvet, suede, leather and metal. While we’re not quite sure what differentiates a women’s choker from a man’s, you can take a look for yourself here.
