And from weapons on the feet to weapons on the fingers, I seem to see way too many guys with ummm overly "fancy" jewelry.

Ties tied so tight where the knot isn't even visible
Suspenders worn with belts
Jeans so tight it looks like it lowers the wearers sperm count
Unpolished black shoes that look gray in the light

Cuffs on a jacket that are too long
too many accessories at once (obvious belt, pocket square, necklace, bracelet, loud socks, too many patterns ...............

Also, large women who wear tight low rise jeans with their belly button exposed. They have that whole muffin thing going on around the waist area.

Black on black... on black.

Specifically, black pants with a black button up and a black tie.

I've seen black on black on black on black on black on black with black sunglasses done quite well. A very sleek, smooth, Matrix-esque look, although it's not done too well too often.

JetBlast, much agreed on the teen clothing. Like I've always said, they're walking advertisements. I'd add Armani Exchange to that list too.

Hah definitely. Tonight I saw a girl bend over and her torn threadbare panties were showing. LMAO

I never understood the tassle loafer phenomenon. Tassles should only be seen at the strip club.

I don't mind all black. I think it looks much better than black on black on black on black on WHITE tie! kill me.

Metallic ties and that Regis look which oddly, still seems popular.

Tatoos (My daughter just had her boyfriend's name tatooed on her back).

Wearing sneakers with suits or, even worse, with a tux.

Wearing too much jewelry.

Oversize watches.

Men with earings.

Did I say tatoos?

nose studs on professional personal......

I have to agree with Will.....the shoes are the biggest mistake.....you'd be REAL hard pressed to find a pair of dress shoes the likes of which you see on here......they don't necessarily have to be Lobbs/EG/AE etc, but the classic dress shoe may be harder to find than a guy wearing a tie these days......I would say almost 95% (maybe more) of the guys I see on the train/subway everyday (all age groups) wear some variation of a clunky/squaretoed/patent leather shine shoe.....even when I see a guy that is well dressed, clothes fitting well, etc....more often than not they are wearing some kenneth cole reaction lug...

on a side note, the macy's near me doesn't even have the tailor come out and fit you anymore....they have one of the poorly dressed salesman do it.....I had this 22 year old kid that had no idea what he was doing.....I insisted the tailor come out and fit me, to say the least...I'm sure Macy's made a business decision based on the fact that so few men today have any idea what proper fit is and would be happy with what the salesman said is the right fit....

Pictures of ephebes from the Sartorialist.....

Louis Vuitton or Gucci loafers or anything with massive logos...

Men wearing football shirts....

Women or men with tatoos .......

Hmmm, I think that is about it. I guess "anything with massive logos" already includes Carolina Herrera...
The thing with the long sleeves on suits and sport coats is maybe what most catches my attention. It is so common!
(Well, in summer, I would add the following mistake: suit worn with short-sleeved shirt).

just to add a few more

- belt a few sizes too big (very common mistake)
- wrinkled pants / jacket
- dirty shoes
- untrimmed neck
- long / dirty fingernails
- tie too long (I actually don't mind a shorter tie)
- holes in socks
- cheap (sun)glasses...

I would say most people wearing low rise jeans...
Maybe 10% of the fit young girls look sexy with that outfit, but the rest...
Also, among those looking sexy, 50% have some strange tattoos that may make them look even more sexy now, but I do not even want to think about what it will look like when they are 40...
Now, obviously, being 45 I should know to keep my mouth shut and not give any opinions on the young folks way of dressing.
