    lissenup saidI'm getting very tired of seeing the deep v-neck tee-shirt, especially when there's a lot of stomach bouncing around underneath it.


    The deep v-neck tee shirt is hot, if it covers a sexy set of man boobs.

    5537B00B saidI know many of you will disagree, but flip-flops and long pants! Enough already. Stop the madness!


    I love my flipflops. I've been wearing them since my childhood days in Nigeria.

    Suspenders/braces with a belt.

    And I guess just general over-accessorizing.

    Popped collars.


    I pop my collar from time to time. It depends on my mood. If you have the "right" attitude, I think you can pull it off. And, of course, you can't do it at 50 icon_lol.gif.

    Unless you're TRYING to look dumpy and fat.


    Pleats work for some people.

    If you are a stylish person, you can break any rule and pull it off. I like someone with a smart sense of personal style and that has nothing at all to do with following generic rules that don't always apply.

    Agreed. This is the case, usually. icon_biggrin.gif

    It's so easy. Just go to a high-end department store and have a gay associate show you how ;).

    A body-fitting t-shirt over a body that obviously can't fit in it.

    I always think, "No that bitch didn't!" icon_lol.gif

    OMG! 80s fashion.... Hide me! Hide me! ew ew ew ew ew ew My eyes! HEEEELLLLP! God they look frumpy. I remember seeing wrestlers in Z. Cavs and they were hot! But these two....icon_eek.gif The horror! Never dress like this EVER!

    Oh! and white terry knit socks are not business casual or formal wear. If you have no other socks to go with your attire, go shopping, wash your clothes, or go sockless.

    Shoes and belt should match. Socks should blend into the pants from the shoe or match your tie if you're going to be daring.

    If you're going to break the rules, accidently or on purpose, be fabulous or prepare for ridicule. In otherwords, act like you meant to do it. As the saying goes, it's not what you wear, but it's how your clothes look on my floor that matters. ;)

    Gay guys are notorious for this:

    Wearing a shirt a size too small than what you need, thinking it's "slimming" when it actually shows that you drink too much vodka absolut. For the love of god, you have to earn the right to wear a tight shirt!

    True, or better still if you have a chest like Jackal69, no shirt at all! icon_wink.gif

    art_smass saidThe most common fashion mistake is believing that other people really give a rat's ass about how you dress, like the world somehow revolves around your public image.

    One man's distressed designer denim is another man's pleated Dockers: To me, anything can look horrible on anyone (and it usually does). The only people who don't routinely look like fools are the ones who wear what they want to wear. I love fashion's freakiest stars. At the moment, Tilda Swinton is my hero, and Simon Doonan's Eccentric Glamour is my bible.


    Are you kidding me with this post? icon_confused.gif No matter what anyone says clothes do make the man. If you think otherwise you're kidding yourself...
    I just returned from my European vacation where everyone takes the time to look good, even to walk down the street in the morning to pick up their "baguettes". Looking good should be a part of everyones daily routine.

    Nah, not as obsessive about it as I understand he is. (Well maybe when it comes to the white socks with everything and horrid 80s wear. Let the 80s die people.) icon_smile.gif But thanks for thinking of someone with impecable fashion sense in the comparison. I do try with what little I have and it's so nice to be noticed. icon_cool.gif

    I don't care how cool you "think" you are popped collars are lame and anyone doing it should be punched in the face.

    There is only one exception to the rule:

    Typical Gay Nazi Fashion bullshit.

    Leather is more masculine than tweed? Tell that to the dead animal!

    Buy, buy, buy and support the dying unsustainable economic system.

    In my opinion.

    Personally I find a tweed jacket looks a lot more masculine than a leather one too.

    Think it's a whole culture thing.
