I don't agree with slim cut pants being a trend, I've been wearing them since 2003. Back then some folks I know use to ridicule me about them; however, being a skinny guy I always prefer slim cut pants since they look better on me.

That's an awful lot of money just to recycle something.

Agreed Rocks, and they've been worn in europe for ages. The people criticizing slim pants are often the people who are too porcine to fit them. While not all pants should be slim, there is something very flattering about them on the right people, as it defines the body and shape better than billowing clouds of frumpy fabric.

Also, +1 on some of the "timeless" stuffiness that goes on here in men's clothing. All said, most of the the people in the WAYWT threads look pretty awesome.

ties with shirts that have the first button undone... looks like you don't care.

Tee shirts that hang so low it resembles a nightgown.

Sandals really get under my skin. It should only be worn on the beach in Miami or on a boardwalk somewhere.

Care to qualify this statement? I just don't see the "feminizing effect" myself...

I just think it looks a little bit dorkish and slightly feminine to have a bag hanging from the shoulder to waist level.

I just don't agree with you on feminization. I am also personally a little wary of critics who use "feminization" as a perjorative to negatively describe looks or styles they dislike, but may be I'm reading too much into your post...I would agree that over the shoulder messengers probably shouldn't be worn with suits, but are probably fine as part of a casual wardrobe.

Whenever I've carried a bag like that I've felt less than dignified, and I've thought the same when looking at other people. Granted, a very masculine male is not going to look too feminine.
I see no reason why observing that an item of clothing or accessory makes the wearer take on a feminine quality is something to be wary of.

Skinny Ties and Lapels....basically anything that is worn because it is hot for the season unless it naturally compliments the person wearing it.
