10 Horrible Men's Fashion Choices That Need to Die

1. The Overgrown Suit

A good suit is going to cost you a nice chunk of change, so I would think that going in, you'd want something that actually happens to fit you if you're going to spend all that money, but to go in and just buy some suit that is clearly 10 sizes too big for you that doesn't fit in the shoulders, the waist, the sleeves, or the break, is baffling. Look at this dude. It's like a weight loss advertisement in the difference between the two. And yes, in case you're wondering, his "is he hot" quotient went up 10 fold just by wearing clothes that actually fit him. He doesn't look like your cousins little brother any more, he actually looks like an adult man!

2. Saggy Baggy Pants + Underwear reveal

Guys, you are not in prison. You don't need to show Don down the street that you aren't packing any weapons by dropping your jeans or pants this low (unless you do, then by all means, avoid getting shot at unnecessarily)...but no, you're like in the mall and at the grocery store and walking around the suburbs like this for what reason exactly? It's not cool, nor fashionable, nor decent to do this. Pull those pants up to that thing called your waist and gain some respect for yourself. No one is going to take you seriously like this.

3. Socks with sandals

This used to be relegated to old fat men on some beach somewhere, but it has invaded the youth now, and therefore something must be done about it. Sandals are only meant to be worn with the toes out. They are summer shoes, fresh off of the beach shoes, going for a quick errand shoes...but they are not, let's put socks on with them shoes. If you are ashamed of your nasty ugly toes, do something about them. Get those things taken care of so you don't have to do this. You're much much much too young to do this. You're better than this people!

4. The Deepest of V's

The sad part is there are even deeper V necks than this one that actual male humans wear. There is no where you can wear this and not appear to be a d-bag. Your chest does not need this much ventilation. If it does, wear a tank top, and leave this at home.

5. Too much Jewelry

Yes, we know this was cool in the 90s or maybe the 70s or if you were Liberace. We know it was awesome to have the pucca shell necklace and snake rings and every rubber wrist band from everything ever, but in life sometimes, when you love something, you have to set it free. This is one of those times. Don't just set one of them free, set all of them free. Your much lighter wrists, neck, and fingers, will thank you.

6. Dad Jeans

Yes, these do exist. You know them when you see them because most likely your dad is STILL wearing them. They are typically a stonewashed color with a light blue wash. They are high-waisted, sitting well above the hips, and balloon out around the waist. Nope, let these go. Better yet, get your dad to let these go unless he's Steve Jobs ghost. Then maybe...

7. Chunky Heeled Shoes

Most people want to always look taller and leaner or stronger than they actually are, and these shoes are the antithesis of making that happen. They are like visual lead weights on a guy adding significant bulk where no guy needs any bulk whatsoever. Don't believe me, look at the first picture of suit guy again and in the before he's wearing a pair of these that might as well be a set of cloven hooves vs. just a nice slim line oxford in the second image. It really does help create nice lines on the body that chunky clunky shoes will never do. Up your sexy with shoes that skim the feet as opposed to put them in cement blocks.

8. White Socks or Sports Socks with Suits

This may have been okay that one time when you were like 13 and your mom was rushing you into the car and you couldn't find your dress socks, but as a grown a-- man, you're still wearing tube socks, or your nike socks...that say NIke down the side with a suit???? Girls can't even get away with this one. There is no excuse. Even the dollar store sells dress socks!

9. Man Capris

Can you honestly say to someone with a straight face, that you enjoy showing your shins off? I actually don't know which is worse...to have these tight fitting or to have them super large and loose.

10. Your Stupid Knot

No one needed or asked for this. Don't be this guy at the board room meeting because it will get you noticed for the wrong reasons. The fact that you are doing this or the other what, 30 ways you can tie a tie, indicates that you actually thought about this long enough to hit up the internet and watch a few videos on how to make this tie happen because no normal man knows how to make this happen out of the blue. This is not the few loops of over and under any dad is teaching his son before church. The tie is a noose around your neck and all you've done is miraculously find a way to somehow make it even noosier!


*BONUS*

Cue the emaciated puppies and kittens theme song music by Sarah McLachlan because this bonus can only be dedicated to the one and only man on the planet earth who has taken it upon himself to embody all that is wrong and unholy about men's fashion. Let the count the ways: Frosted tips. Frosted Goatee with extensions?!? Sunglasses indoors. Ed Hardy. Man Capris. Orange Tan. Juvenile T-shirts. Black socks on the beach. Camo formal suits. Way too many bowling shirts. 1970s style 'going out' shirts. Double hoop earrings. Deep Vs. Dad jeans. FLAMES. Wings. Dragons. Embroidery. Ill Fitting clothing. Chunky shoes. Wearing sweat wrist bands while not even playing sports. Too much jewelry. Too much everything.

    I agree with all of those although I am having trouble understanding the chunky dress shoes one. Can you be more specific? To me, dress shoes are dress shoes and I have trouble recognizing the difference.

      In fashion, not many people set out to look lumpy and dumpy. With men and women, you want to create a nice long line that flatters the body and shows off the shape you have. It's the reason jackets have darting, suits are fit to the shoulders, women wear high heels, etc. When you add a particularly chunky boxy shoe to the foot, you stop that nice long flattering line. It visually weighs you down like a cement block. It may be hard to understand without seeing it, but perhaps the next time you're in a shoe store, stand in front of a mirror and try on the chunky boxy footwear vs. say a slimmer profile oxford with a slightly more pointed toe.

      @BigBallerSodaPop Depends where you're shopping I guess. And your price range.

      @0112358 My general rule is don't go near the box toe. If I remember correctly, Alfani by Macy's has some inexpensive non box toe shoes.

    My only issue with #1 is that the guy in the teeny tiny suit is so thin that the fitted suit looks almost as bad.

    There was also this nasty fad going around where guys were wearing dress shoes with no socks. Go ahead, read that again. No. Socks. I'm not talking the half/hidden socks... none.

    Did you know the sagging pants started in prison? It was a way for the gay inmates to let other inmates know their ready for sodomy (anal sex) without alerting the guards because it's frowned upon in the jail system. Only reason I wear socks with Sandles, is when I go outside briefly because the asphalt powder from the road and dust from being in a desert state gets on my flip flops and dyes my feet black everytime. Otherwise I don't wear the socks if I'm out in public, which normally I wear shoes when I am

      Oh and only reason I have a baggy suit is because the tailor that was supposed to take it in and fit it ripped me off, $50 and they didn't do anything, so I rarely wear it, haven't had the money to get it fixed lately because of extra bills

    • 1mo

      And I never wear white socks with a suit, unless it's a white suit but I don't wear white suits because they would get dirty what to fast

  • 1mo

    3. I do this when I'm going to the gym. I don't like wearing my training shoes to the gym because I'm trying to preserve them for as long as I can and I'm not going to waste my time going in between shoes in the locker room.
    10. I don't think anyone would notice the knot

    I agree with the rest though. Especially 1. When I was little I dreaded ever thinking about wearing a suit when I grew up because in my early years in the 90s the baggy suit was pretty common and I thought it looked so lame. Now I don't mind wearing a suit at all because I have actual fitted ones.

      Anything worn that is gym related, whilst in route to said gym is fine.

      I would agree with you about the suits in the 90s. Most of them were the American cut style which is a looser fit all the way round, and it made for some really dumpy looking suits. Now, thankfully they have all sorts of cuts especially the slim fit for thinner men which I don't think really had much of an option in suiting except to go bigger unless they had a tailor.

  • 1mo

    1. For real, please get me a suit that fits WELL!

    2. I agree with you. Thank goodness I never did it.

    3. "He's wearing Crocks with Socks... LOL (SNL)

    5. I don't do jewelery (not even a watch and I'm not married)

    Explain to me the difference between sagging shirts creating cleavage and sagging pants? Yes, one is more generally loved. But they are pretty much the same concept. Significantly less people won't take you seriously when you're showing off half your breasts either. Does that stop you?

    It's cultural identification. You might as well tell Chinese people to stop using chopsticks.

      Are you viewing this as some kind of personal attack on you or your culture? Don't misunderstand me, people ARE going to wear whatever they want. I'm just a person with an opinion on fashion and what I like, as are we all.

      Secondly comparing a shirt meant to and cut to showcase cleavage, i. e., a V-neck, is different than wearing pants that aren't meant to be shoved down to the knees to reveal underwear. Now if you want to talk about women who wear clothing that reveals their actual underwear, I talked about that in my things I hate about women's fashion for the same reasons I talked about it here in regards to men's fashion.

      Also saying the sagging pants are cultural identification is implying that you have to be this or that race in order to wear them, and that's simply not true, nor does everyone everywhere do it. The same could be said of chopsticks and who uses them, and who doesn't. It doesn't make you less of a Chinese person if you use a fork.

    • Show All
    • 1mo

      I actually said, using chopsticks, in reference to what you said above, doesn't make you any more or less of a Chinese person than does using a fork... meaning, anybody of any race can use Chopsticks regardless of culture or race... so calm down.

      Are pants meant to be worn with the waist band... I don't know... at waist level? Why yes, yes they are. Can you go into a job interview with those pants showing off your underwear and people will treat you the same as other people wearing the garment properly... not likely... hence the respect comment. You can pretend all you want that sagging pants and showing off underwear get you treated like everyone else, but they don't, and you know that so trying to act all angry about it and blow up about those comments is stupid.

      ...

    • 1mo

      And those cleavage tops you're going on about, which FYI, I don't wear, are worn by ladies who wear underwear underneath, as in a bra, because showing off nipples tends to be frowned upon by the law. A bra, aka, a bikini top, can be worn in public. In fact a woman can wear a bra out in public as long as her nipples are covered, so for the same reason you're trying to argue, men can wear underwear because it resembles shorts... well the same exact argument could be made about a bra.

      It's fashion. You can think what you'd like. These are my opinions. Done.

  • 1mo

    Very good take ma'am, agree with it all especially the baggy suits, baggy clothes in general. You show up to an interview or date looking like that and get rejected out of hand.

    Dad jeans? The mom jeans/shorts epidemic has waned slightly but still been in full force since around 2012. This is not hip or fashionable! I used to make fun of my mom for dressing like this in the late 90s through the 2000s and now it has come back to haunt me!

    Good except Dad jeans. I understand that the Snowflakes who post here have no clue what farm and yard work are but those of us in the real world wear them with pride. And many of us ARE Dads as opposed to insipid "baby daddies"/sperm donors.
