Rolled up sleeves on blazers/sport coats/suit jackets. Been seeing alot of this in GQ editorials lately. a terrible message to the masses.

As in the Miami Vise look, Don Johnson and all that? I suppose fashions and trends come and go, 80s fashions probably due for a revival, after all we've had 70s revivals.
We had a 70's revival and were smart enough to leave the leisure suits in that era. Can't we do the same with this trend?
- Black suits (Somebody better be dead...)
- That ridiculous piping on the pockets and lapels of cheap polyester suits
- Single Monkstrap Shoes
- The "Chinos, Vans, fully-buttoned-polo-shirt" uniform of the under 30s
- Very cropped blazers - cover your ass!
- Crepe soles - on anything and everything, especially those giant wedge ones Grenson seems to have gone mad for
- Graphic tees, especially ones from Hollister - they should pay you advertising money for wearing those things.
- Untapered trousers
#1 - People who don't understand the pleasure of an expensive pair of shoes.
I like this thread.
I quite like the rolled up look, although I see lots of people with fully lined suit jackets that they wear as sportcoats (Another peeve - get some sportcoats, suits can't always double up) and then roll the sleeves - looks too boxy and wrong. I'd say it only works with an unlined cotton/linen blazer.
Although I totally agree that GQ sends some horrible messages to its readers - to the point now that you can tell instantly in public whether or not a man reads GQ. (Tip 1 - he will not be accompanied by a female)
