Let's list things we hate, Clothingwise - Page 15

post #211 of 242
One thing that I had not noticed until I moved is... cheap dress shoes with jeans. Ok cool, you can rock your Diors with Santoni or whatever. But ugly, tapered thrifted levis with plastic-y square toes? Ughh, I have never seen anything worse.

Should (French) cuffs also show with blazers in casual settings?

Salesmen who say they will give you big discount on a blazer that is 4 sizes too big for you. Seriously, this happened to me in LA.

New Era Hats.
Colorfull Hoodies with patterns.
Nike Dunks.
How tight jeans can really get, I almost think people wrap their legs in saranwrap and spray it down with PAM before they get those jeans on.

Basically I just described hypebeastin'.

I guess that's a bit harsh, they do a bit. Or perhaps I'm just hanging out with the wrong people.

My sentiments EXACTLY!!!

The only exceptions were when I paid more than mall prices for things of substantially higher quality.

No kidding! I don't even want to THINK about how much money I have wasted over the years buying junk quality from malls. That's before I knew of SF, of course! Now I see that high-quality shirts can be bought for about the same price - or even less - than these overpriced fashion labels. For example, a Finamore shirt (on sale) from is only about $30 more than one from Banana Republic that looks like crap and is made in China/India/Vietnam and that has no hint of style or elegance whatsoever!

How about

anything that deliberately has a hole in it.

From my meagre experience:
- Jorts, Crocs, and pants that flood.
- tucking shirts into ridiculously high-rise pants. see: mom jeans
- absurd distressing. Not only is it disingenuous, it shows you have no taste in fashion. Subtle and attractive distressing is one thing, but you've gone overboard when it looks like a tiger scratched your crotch.

Yesterday at school there was an obese girl wearing a fuchsia shirt with jeans that were impossibly distressed down the front and back, like two huge stripes...revealing that the cotton was not an off-white, but, in fact, pink. And of course, her blue-and-pink jeans matched her shirt.

Muscular dudes who wear tight clothes -- I'm with Jean Touitou on this one.

Untucked shirts that hang past the balls in the front and past the butt in the back.

The Thom Browne look -- A friend of mine tried on my suit once a few years back, and I remember laughing my ass off because it was so small on him. Who knew that he was being fashion forward? I guess after the baggy clothes trend of the 90s, the pendulum has swung to the other extreme.

What is your definition of "tight"? Who can wear tight clothes? Skinny people? Fat people?

Sunglasses - inside clubs at night. What's the point?

Ah, Issey Miyake, the ultimate fragrance of choice of the boy who is about to go on his first-ever date!

So they can, so they can, keep track of the visions in their eyes?

Boy, me with my hip cultural references!

I've seen a few things on campus that made my skin crawl. 1) Crocs, 2) Skin tight pants and I mean pants that show every lump, curve and bump on the area lower than the waist (yes, all of it), 3) Player jerseys outside of a game,4) excessive bling, 5) excessive piercings, 6) most cheapo department store hats, 7) pre-ripped/pre-distressed clothing (if you wanted to wear torn clothing, do it yourself) and 8) Shutter sunglasses. Other than that I pretty much adopt a wear and let wear philosophy.
