I did a similar about women here. So now this one is about men. Being a straight guy, it doesn't mean I cannot have an opinion about men's fashion, I guess. So here we go.
(In alphabetical order)
1) Bagpacks (peak: present)
Funny (in a bad way) and uncomfortable, in my opinion. Do you really miss the school days, when you used to carry this ridiculous bag on a daily basis?
2) Big Sideburns (peak: 60s)
First thing that comes to my mind is...like an ape. Please do us a favor and don't try to adopt this forgotten ultra-stupid trend.
3) Buzz cut (peak: since 00s)
OK, I understand if you suffer from a hair loss, since you have no more options. But if you don't? Pretty silly if you ask me. Especially if it's coupled with this scruffy beard. You might regret it actually one day, when you suffer from a real hair loss.
4) Checkered shirt (peak: present)
As I said to the other MyTake about women...like a tablecloth.
5) Ear gauges (peak: present)
Girls do it by some degree as well, but guys do it more often. This is the silliest thing ever. One day you might get bored of it, and you will need a surgery in order to close your earlobe hole.
6) Flip-flops (for casual use) (peak: since 00s)
I don't mean wearing on the beach, but for casual use. Since the dawn of the new century, more and more men starting to use flip-flops for casual use. That's absolutely kitsch in my opinion, if you're not on the beach and you wear casual clothes.
7) Goatee beard (peak: since 90s)
Not as massive as it was in the 90s, but still popular. Well, you know what it resembles this type of beard, if not anybody has told you so far.
8. Jerseys (peak: since 90s)
Whether it comes from a football (both soccer and American football) team or a basketball team or whatever, it looks ridiculous for casual use. I'd call it poserish.
9) Low crotch trousers (peak: since late 00s)
It's a surprise how many guys actually accept to follow this trend. Sure it's an attention seeker, but not for good reasons.
10) Male purse (peak: since 00s)
Actually this might apply only for Western European countries more or less, where it's more common for men to carry a purse, but anyway I never liked this type of fashion. Generally I prefer using my pockets instead of carrying a bag.
11) Man bun (peak: present)
It's usually worn with this gross beard. One of the most ridiculous trends I refuse to follow. Unless you want to look like a samurai.
12) Nerdy glasses (peak 50s-60s and present)
Both genders look gross in those bottle-like glasses. Blame hipster culture for it.
13) Newsboy cap (peak: early 20th century)
I understand if you were a youth in 1900s, 1910s, 1920s...but nowadays every time I see a young man wearing this thing, I cringe. Although not mainstream, it's usually worn by young guys who pretend to be intellectual and sophisticated.
14) Shirts from "edgy" bands (peak: since posers started to appear)
Copying from my previous MyTake (with the words guys/girls switched in the first sentence):
I mean those guys (and girls obviously) who wear shirts from bands like Iron Maiden, Nirvana, Pink Floyd (are Pink Floyd really edgy to them?) , etc. Never understood the mentality of those people. You want to show off that you know a band that 99 out of 100 people know? I really wonder how many albums have they listened to from each band. I hate Radiohead and Nirvana for example, but I've listened to the most part of their whole discography, to form an opinion about them. As for them who claim they love the band they wear...how much of their stuff do they actually know?
15) Straw hats (peak: since 00s)
Although people used to wear them already, in rural areas mostly, it was since this century when men (who live in the city), started to wearing them more and more often as well. They look really ridiculous wearing them in a city, I believe.
16) Suits (peak: all-time classic)
Like long dresses for women, I consider suits for men way too overrated, formal and uptight. Never understood why they are so praised.
17) Suspenders (peak 90s)
Especially when they were coupled with a tie. Hope nobody will have the smart idea, to surface this trend back again.
18. Thick beards (peak 70s and since late 00s)
One of the worst previous-decade fashion trends that surfaced back again. Isn't this thing annoying? I tried to grow a two week beard out of curiosity to see how I'd look, and never again. It's like carrying a beehive on your face, all day and all night. No beard is always more comfortable.
19) Top hats (peak: 18th-19th century and early 20th century)
Maybe back then it was normal to wear Top hats, but in our days when someone attempts to wear such a hat...he just looks ridiculous. Unless he wants to be Mr. Monopoly.
20) Walking stick (for non-old people) (peak: 18-19th century and early 20th century)
Another common accessory along with top hats, popular during more than a century ago. Just weird for a non-old person to carry such a stick, especially when they try to adopt this style in our days.
