The ill-fitting white jeans that made repeated appearances on this forum, or just white jeans?

If I may, Big A, It's ALL white jeans for me.

Seriously, are you a ninja? Or an azbo? Then you don't need the hood.

Similarly, around here when it gets cold, I see a lot of guys walking around with hoodies under an topcoat with the hood hanging out the back. Way to kill the look of a nice topcoat.

The word "hoodie" makes my skin crawl. I hate them.

Can I also add wearing scarfs all the time even if it is 40 degrees C out there with 90% humidity? That doesn't make you look sophisticated.

Cargo shorts.

I don't buy into 95% of the trends out there. Think of how much stupid shit people wear and think it looks great. Juicy tracksuits, rhinestone studded & silk screen T-shirts, arab headscarves, a particular type of drivers cap. Almost every single fashion trend that we have seen this decade is goddamn fucking ridiculous. It's been over the top, gratuitous and showy. $400 jeans with special stitching, $200 t-shirts designed by the same hack who is also responsible for the worst trend of the decade, von-dutch trucker hats.

You guys egg on boat shoes as if it were somehow the worst shoe ever seen (how quickly we forget Uggs) when it's really nothing special and will be gone in a few years. Think of all the horrible shit people are wearing and you choose BOAT SHOES as the trend you most hate?

The only trend I bought into in the past decade was both the Dior Homme look and currently the Black Fleece / Thom Browne look.

Keffiyah are for students ..Worn with a pair of jeans and trainers, like the guy on the student , is nothing offensive even if it is a sartorial Beresina..

Yes, this is definitely one I don't get. Those watches span the whole silhouette of my arm!

I agree to a point. Large or chunky watches have their place. I tend to like them for a casual or sporty look. However, I don't understand how people wear them with a suit or dress shirts. It seems like the cuff of their shirt would catch on the case.

I'm actually looking for a watch now, but it seems as if most stores only carry the clunkier models.

I would beg to differ.

Sure, the college frat look of boat shoes + frumpy khakis + polo shirt is somewhat annoying. However, contrary to what some may think, many people (myself included) actually wear boat shoes when we are on the water. They're insanely comfortable broken in, they don't mark the deck, they're made to be worn without socks, and it doesn't matter if they get wet. It's not like they're a trend that started recently.

Boat shoes won't be going anywhere.

How about flamboyently colored dress shirts (solid red, black, grey, brown, green, dark beige, orange, etc. etc.). I think they are obnoxious!

The black pants, black shoes, black button-up with a white or silver tie look. Pair that in with scenester hair and puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuke.
