I bet it will look a lot better on females.
Actually, I think they look even worse on the females. I previewed all of the piece on my female norn, and they are thoroughly unappealing to me. I was really hoping that the ascended armors would look cool and be a great way to show off our characters, but these garments are way too busy, and very unflattering in their appearance.
As someone who has been continually disappointed by the lack of armor diversity in this game, I was really hoping ANet would finally rectify that glaring problem via the ascended armors. Now it looks like that hope has been completely dashed, possibly leaving legendary armor as the final chance for salvation.
