Good freaking God

tacky includes but is not limited to:

anything with a college logo or pro sports logo; playboy rabbit head-logo stuff; tie clips; most tasseled loafers; clip-on suspenders; those shitty boxy, square-toed dress shoes worn by men in their first post-college job; the preppy look on people who aren't preppies; the preppy look on people who are (i have been known to wear pink and lime green but then i'm a recovering preppy); botton-down shirts that aren't from brooks brothers.

i'll give black men in entertainment/pro sports a pass. i'm not in their demographic and i don't really care how they dress. just as long as they don't look as though they're on their way to the junior prom (kids who just got drafted by NBA teams are sometimes guilty of this look) but as i said, i'm pretty forgiving of them as they don't really know any better.

How about those Burberry outfits that Ernest used to love teasing so much?

I agree with everything but this. Ben Sherman buttondowns aren't bad. Actually, anything buttondown in the style of Ben Sherman isn't bad. But if you're talking American chambray tent-and-awning-cut buttondown shirts, then I agree with that too.

i didn't know BS made button-downs.

button-downs are tricky to get right and only BB does it consistently. then again, i stopped wearing them decades ago. too young/collegiate looking for me.

After having looked over the International Male site, I can not, in good conscience, say that they are not the tackiest menswear maker ever. Godjesus, who the fuck thought that stuff up? HORRENDOUS. What the hell were they smoking when they came up with the "Wideleg Gabardine Pant" or "London Opera Vest and Jacket"? For some reason, they especially love making long jackets with straight bottoms.

Yeah, the tan deal with a shirt collar- that's a 'suit.' The pink thing- yes, french cuffs. IM wins.

All these songs suck.
They are popular among the West Coast hip hop set, they are far lower regard on the east.

Not everyone can afford more than that.

I agree. It's not great, but it's not bad. It's just average.

Oh My GAWD!! I rode the elevator with this guy at the Marriott RenCen in Detroit while I was living/working there.

He was wearing this very outfit, so I said, "That's quite an outfit you have there!" assuming that he was on his way to a costume party or such. What you can't see in the pictures is that he has shoes to match the faux animal print in black and lime green. He responded, "Yesss, I like to look sharp... Hey, we're havin' a little party up in Snoop's suite. Wanna come on up?" After taking a second to register who "Snoop" was, I gave him my best "disappointed" face, and responded, "Gosh, THANKS! I'd love to, but I have a lot of work to do yet tonight. But thanks!"

I've told several people about the get-up, but no-one ever believed me. So glad to see it recorded on "film" to back up my story.

Average is the worst. At least at the polar ends of taste, there is distinction, albeit dubious.
