Clothing Pet Peeves - what are yours? - Page 12

post #166 of 221
Also, and this is probably a local thing, but people wearing hiking gear or shoes when they're not going hiking. It's kind of the clothing equivalent of people who never drive off road buying a big 4x4 just because they want to appear "outdoorsy" or "rugged." It's especially bad when the person wearing the hiking gear is out of shape to the point where it's obvious that haven't been doing much hiking.

The one I have is sewn right across, as far as I can tell there's no pocket. Maybe I'll let a seamstress or tailor look at it. Still, why do they do that?

That could be because they're looking for good ankle support which mostly just hiking boots provide, especially at low price points. With 4x4s, my uncle has one because a few days of the year it snows and Columbus is ill equipped to deal with snow so a sedan would be useless those few days. In places that regularly have snow they have plows set to run regularly so at worst you're waiting a few hours before you can drive instead of a few days.

I'm not exactly sure, but for one thing it prevents people putting their hands in the pockets of a jacket in the store and distending the pockets before it sells. Some people leave them sewn shut to prevent themselves doing this as well.

If it's just the breast pocket and front pockets sewn shut with white thread, you can just cut the thread with a knife or seam ripper. But if you're not sure, yeah, let a tailor look at it instead.

That makes sense. Would be nice if it was a little less solid stitching though.

im not really peeved about anything anyone does to themselves, i just get amused, but one peeve is sartorial disrespect to others.
you know it when you see it.
when you invite someone over for dinner and they dress real stinky, i mean, if i see that he tried i respect that, i mean really stinky and shorts and no socks and sandals and all.
i dont like people who wear sandals with feet that are very dirty and we are in closed quarters like at a restaurant or eating place or a theater.
smells and inconsiderate.
very disrespectful.
to me it is equivalent to smoking in front of nonsmokers. sort of.

Oh come on. People probably own hiking shoes because they go hiking at some point. Perhaps not with as much regularity as you think justifies purchasing them, but who cares if they were it around on non-hiking days? People buy running shoes and basketball shoes all the time, so you're going to tell me they can't wear them unless they are running or actually playing basketball? If you're talking about people wearing "timbalands" with baggy jeans (or oversized clothing all over for that matter), then you just don't like the look of a portion of the hip hop culture.

Unfortunately 4x4s are not marketed solely to the outdoorsy community, and in fact Audi uses the technology in their Quattro. If anything, the big 4x4s are annoying more so for how obnoxious they can be (parking in small spaces for one thing).

If you have to have beef with anything, let it be with the TEVAs!! Now those are hideous - unless you are a grad student.

I hate when guys have functional buttonholes on their suit jackets or sportcoats and never unbotton them. I mean seriously, what's the point of having them be functional if you're never going to unbotton them? I think it's fabulously stylish to unbotton at least one button on one of the sleeves. Grow a friggin' pair for god's sake and unbotton that button.

That reminds me, non-functional buttons. If it's just there for decoration make it look like something else.

damn that was an interesting thread, i just read every reply in this thread, took a while. I gotta say i use to fall victim to the kennith cole clothing back in college. Still own some polo shirts but i wear them for work at a psych hospital (you never know when a patient will decide to throw juice or food at you or when he will try to attack you.)

Yeah i gotta say a few of my peaves i can think of are.....

-Baggy jeans (especially the guy wearing a size 40 when he's a size 33.)

-True Religion jeans

-even worse than T.R. are jeans that look like this....


(saw some whitish mexican lookin dude at the airport wearing something like this. I felt sorry for his girlfriend.)

thats bout what i can think of for now.

Those are ugly jeans. Doesn't look like it could have remotely happened naturally.
