From each according to his/her ability, to each according to his/her need, that's what I say.

FOUR LEGS GOOD. TWO LEGS BAD.

Most knitwear including cardigans and especially those fucking ridiculous shawl collared toggled monstrosities that elicit Pavlovian group jizzing whenever one is displayed in a WAYWRN photo.

Duffel coats - fine for kindergarten kids and Paddington Bear. Grown men should leave well alone and yes I know all about their RN origins, they still always look like they need a pair of mittens dangling at the cuffs from a long string passed through the sleeves.

Sweater vests. Not so long ago these were the sole purview of nerds and geeks. My oddball brother is the worst dressed man I know and he wears them daily. Somehow they have wedged a niche for themselves in classic menswear. Same goes for hideous fair isle knits, and don't get me started on down vest bodywarmers.

Caps. All of them. From baseball to tweed to coprollas they all look crap.

These industrial and/or hiking boots that people seem to think are essential when the temp gets below 50 degrees F. Duck boots too. Unless you are actually hiking, working on a factory floor or hunting ducks in a marsh somewhere.

Bulky cable sweaters
toggle coats
tassle loafers
generally, shoes with metal ornament 
boat shoes
white shirts, generally
plaid
paisley
Red (except maroon or rust)
bright colors, generally
Trench coats
gold metal accessories, generally (red/pink excepted)
shades of green other than olive or sage

So basically you don't like clothes? And you know of cardigans without buttons and turtlenecks with zips?

You don't like knits?

Concur on duffel coats, knit vests, fair isle and caps. Duffle coats are fucking stupid, especially with that hood.

Come to think of it, I hate hoods, unless it is a straight up plastic yellow rain coat

Loafers in general, but especially ones with kilties.

I really don't like loafers either.

I think hoodies are rather inappropriate to wear when you reach a certain age - like 40 something.

I don't fancy black cap toes, really depends on the last though.

Split toes are something I never understood. I don't like any kind of boots either.

I've never owned a turtleneck and I don't think I've ever worn saddle shoes.
