Ok, just shoot me:

I don't like pocket squares.

There, I said it.
Pocket squares on me look ridiculous. I envy people who can wear them. But me? Almost never.

I wore a knit tie to my birthday brunch. Many said it was "like a sock." Those people have since been cut out of my life completely.

We haven't discussed footwear.

They look like the rubber clogs doctors and nurses wear around the hospital.

Think of them as elf shoes. You might get intrigued.

You must be confusing me with Dopey. Just because I'm Chinese and he only eats Chinese food, it doesn't mean we're the same person.

Gusset loafers (these deserve special mention)
Antiquing
Patterned linen pocket squares
Actually, pretty much all linen pocket squares that aren't white
Skinny lapels
Split yokes
'Slim fit'
Roped shoulders
Peak lapels on single breasted jackets
Dangling, straight-line breast pockets
Crazy-jester-hiding-in-my-pocket pocket square folds
Shiny ties
Ties with fancy stripes
Ties wider than 3.5 inches
Hacking pockets
Ticket pockets
Rounded barrel cuffs
Non-blue, non-white, non-ecru shirts
Cutaway collars
High button stances
Tie space
Light tan shoes
AE styling
Not necessarily what Thom Browne sells, but anything that looks Thom Browne

Judging by this list, you need to join the army.

1. Bespoke clothes that are NO improvement over RTW
2. The obsession with Kiton and Brioni
3. The obsession with hand sewn buttonholes, particularly on shirts (exactly what does this provide other than a reason to charge the customer a small fortune?)
4. RTW shirts that are priced such that you could have a custom shirt maker cut a pattern for you, sew three shirts, and STILL not touch the price of your precious branded RTW.
5. Button down dress shirts, generally speaking
6. Canvas belts
7. Loafers
8. Pants hemmed around one's ankle
9. Forward pleated pants, and by extention Ralph Lauren Blue Label suits
10. Split toe shoes with suits
11. Wingtip boots (BOOTS?)
12. Used shoes (come on, people)
13. $1,500 shoes (again, come on, people)
14. Monkstraps
15. SF members who post pictures of everything they buy
16. People who point out minute flaws in the way other people dress, as if clothes can be fitted with rocket science precision.
17. People who insist on abiding my some arbitrary set of rules as to how a man should dress. Newsflash: If the other 99 people in a room think you look like a pompous jackass, it doesn't mean those 99 people are sartorially ignorant. IT MEANS YOU'RE A POMPOUS JACKASS.

There is a special place in hell reserved for button down tuxedo shirts.

Seems kind of harsh, no?

legible ties (I don't like them) non-lace-up shoes e.g. loafers and monkstraps. The normative male shoe should have laces. Socks with patterns e.g. argyle etc.. they are too fussy for a gentlemen IMO Silk ties with tweed sports coats. One should wear a textured woolen tie with a tweed sports coat instead. Belts with suits. I say braces should be worn with suits instead. I don't know if this is an unpopular opinion but : Bluchers with suits. One should only wear balmorals with suits.

I think you forgot one, mafoofan: vested suits. Or, do you merely dislike vested suits? Or, do you have a lukewarm opinion (no love, like, dislike or hate) of them?
