Worst Current Menswear Looks? And define AmJack?

post #1 of 64
Thread Starter 
What current looks which men in general seem to emulate and wear in Packs, live wolves, that just are wrong?

And what is your definition of AmJack?

I'm getting sick and tired of those "clubbing" shirts with seizure inducing patterns, personally.

In the UK hair cuts are at all time low. A sort of bed hair/fin/post modern mullet evil hybrid seems popular. (Extra evilness points are awarded if it is bleached/tipped/dyed in any way.

These hair cuts are especially prevalent among the black polyester suit (with all 3 buttons done up), light tan trainer/ shoe combo wearing fools.

Frayed tee shirts with meaningless slogans are all the rage it seems.

Welders from Stoke running around emblazoned with "San Diego Track Team All stars " or some such nonsense on their chests.

Tattoos and garish jewelry are everywhere.

I can't think of anything else, although I do hate virtually everything I see.

You sir are well on your way to an ulcer. Tread lightly.

Is that the haircut that Duncan Quinn favors?

I don't think it looks too bad on him.

Excuse my ignorance, but I do not know who Duncan Quinn is.

I think he is a British lawyer who also has a sideline for a fashion line:

I grow very tired of square toed shoes as well as shoes that bear the label Steve Madden on them. But I don't blame them; they don't know what it is to be a sartorialist. Which is why it is even more important for us to espouse the virtues of fine dressing -- which is not to say everyone should be purchasing Kiton or Brioni suits, but a good, styled look can be acheived as long as the fit and colors work in tandem. Also, I'm quite tired of those t-shirts that have the sayings on them; they're just dull and uninspiring. My definition of an AmJack is any man who chooses Kenneth Cole as their outfitter.

Pleated khaki's

Rockport shoes

White trainers with shorts or jeans (especially hienous with elastic waisted khaki shorts or relaxed fit narrow cuffed jeans)

Chopper T's in any shade

Any sleeveless t-shirt anywhere, even the gym.

Three button suits, with the first two buttons fastened

Those who still sport the Regis Phillbin/Tom Cruise monchromatic shirt and tie.

Any guy who is wearing a black shoe with a clandestine rubber sole. As if there is something wrong with a proper leather soled shoe.

Loafers/slip-ons with a suit, especially if you live in the place where you are wearing this combo. It is forgiveable, but should not be acceptable for the traveller.

NBA suits or one that looks like those worn on that "Kings of Comedy" movie.

The whole look you see on ESPN SportsCenter. You know the one; shoulders way too big, and vibrant patterns, shirt collars that are too narrow.

And lastly, the button-down collared shirt that sports an embroidered logo (golf shirts, too) for some corporation. Egads, why would anyone wear these unless the boss makes them.

All those skinny ties. Rarely work on all but the most skinny imho.

Sandals in the office.

Loud Tommy Bahama shirts.

T-shirts showing under polo shirts. T-shirts showing under anything for that matter.

Those new fugly clog shoes. My gawd what a disaster!

Over-sized sunglasses.

Nascar shirts during the work week.

Four button suits. (Common at Lenox Square Mall)

Disagree strongly here; sleeveless t-shirts serve a very important function for those who work out. I would sweat like a pig without the use of sleeveless t-shirts when lifting weights. The gym is the last place for fashion sense.

I see nothing wrong with this, though I generally button the middle only on my 3-button suits. It's the last button fastened that makes me cringe.

Nothing wrong per se here; at least an effort is being made. 95% of men do not know the virtues of a leather soled shoe, nor do they know what a leather soled shoe is. Perhaps you should educate them on such matters?

The tees that bear the logos of West Coast Choppers or Orange County Choppers in reference to motorcycles.
