The winner of last year's Bespoke Designer of the Year at the British Fashion Awards, Richard James, adds a lot more than just color for this summer collection in collaboration with SpongeBob SquarePants.

SpongeBob SquarePants and his pal Patrick are featured as camo patterns on all the gentlemanly apparel and accessories in this collection. A full Spongebob suit, tailored shirts with cutaway collars, pocket squares and neckties are in the collection, with the final three items in three different sets of flamboyant colorways and patterns.

Each piece in this limited SpongeBob SquarePants collection will be individually numbered, and they'll only be available at Richard James on May 12.

To those men who wear pink shirts without fear or embarrassment, you have a new sartorial challenge. Stats for Cartoon-Inspired Menswear Trending: Older & Chilly
