Magnanni shoes - way too pointy for me, but I didn't realize until I wore them. Luckily, Last Call still took them back.

Also, a Robert Graham shirt. When I bought it, I wasn't familiar with the label. I bought a conservative blue and white stripe with a maroon design under the cuff. Hit the Borgata and saw all the bros that swapped their Ed Hardy out for the Robert Graham at night. I wanted to puke.

Bright orange Hermes tie - never seems to work.

Also, I lost over 30 pounds through the last six months (177 to 144), and I'm 5'6", so a lot of my nicer purchases earlier last year are a total waste. Tailoring can only go so far (and sadly can't save my brown leather bomber jacket).
