pocket squares
bowties with non-black tie
hats
fur

rolled up sleeves
to explain, I had a coworker that rolled up his sleeves every day without fail for two years. To above his elbows. I thought he looked like a complete idiot.
I will roll up a bit while driving or if I need to do physical work
but I dislike when people roll up their sleeves as the norm

Where do you live? If it's 100 degrees outside then I'm rolling these bad boys up unless I need to be more formal.

One thing that I would never wear are contrast collar shirts. It just screams douche. Also, anything in paisley.

I forgot:
pleats
creased cotton/chinos, or even worse, creased jeans

If we aggregated all the "do not wears" I suspect we'd end up concluding that we should only ever wear dark 2-button SB suits with white shirts and balmoral shoes. Apparenty without wristwatches (Las - really?)

Are wristwatches, pink shirts, or black brogues really that evil? (Full disclosure: I am wearing a Cartier Tank on a black croc strap today; wore a light pink shirt on Monday and wore a weather-beaten pair of 20-year old black EG full brogues yesterday because it was raining and the cracked leather is by now held together primarily by a mix of Renovateur and shoe cream and they will die soon so I don't mind them getting soaked. If England get to the Euro 2012 finals, I'll dig out my England shirt and go to the pub with my mates to watch it. And I was briefly in a very hot and mildly dangerous third world country recently and my well-worn Royal Robbins "cargo pants" were both useful and appropriate, thank you very much.)

You should not wear:

- most "designer" shit;
- cheap ugly shit;
- shit that does not fit;
- shit that does not fit (repeated for emphasis).

And that's about it. Personally, I would rather staple my ballsack to a piece of wood than wear boat shoes except when saliling a yacht, any form of "interesting" t-shirt, most American shoes, bow ties (except with black/white tie), cravats, or a gimp mask in public. But anything else, done well, ought to find favour here.

Ummm, I am in the market for a few pairs.

Bird came round tonight wearing them, they look even worse on the foot than on the shelf. Each to their own and all that but just why?

Chinos.
