Thread Starter 
What do you dislike that most other forum members seem to regard highly? I'll start:

Split-toe shoes.

I know the EG Dover is a forum favorite. I like the last shape but can't get past the split-toe.

Dislike may be too strong a word, but I don't get the JL RTW love over say JM Weston.

Well personally I like split-toes, ascots and DB jackets

I don't understand the love of cordovan...

Allen Edmunds. I understand there is a great quality/price ratio and you can easily find them on sale and some of the styles are nice but no matter what I will always see them as "old man shoes". Perhaps I dislike them without reasonable cause but thats still how I feel about them.

We've done this before, but it's still fun.

Not for me:
90 percent of Lobbs
Gaudy, unnatural antiquing (I'm looking at you, Lobb cirrus. Along with Kiton, etc.)
Ascots, though I don't really think they're that popular here. Unwearable on anyone not eligible for the AARP.
Clothing that looks too new/slick
Turtlenecks with suits
Suspenders, aka braces
Most wingtip balmorals
Valextra

Also don't get the fetish for handwork in RTW shirts and the appeal of certain SF-adored brands, such as Isaia.

I've warmed to split-toes, though I still don't own any.
