They're taking the pith in the Guardian article - why do you think they chose that Charles Hawtrey looking guy to model the stuff? Now if it was in the Telegraph they'd probably be serious.
It's quite an odd article. I mean it's clearly TOO over the top to be serious … and yet I don't get the "joke". They've spent a lot of money on that shoot (even assuming the clothes were gratis). I suspect it's some 3rd-level meta fashion satire thing that I will never understand. Or perhaps it's a Guardian running gag.
Anyway, it did lead me to this page of great pics (including one from this weekend's national CX champs):
