    Firearm safety is no joke. Remember that there are people who don't want us to have guns.

    I guess there's nothing for it. I'm going down to my gun safe right now and put a 230-grain jacketed hollow point .45 slug through my brain. Farewell, cruel Style Forum.

    For safety's sake, please lock yourself in the gun safe before any shooting. Obligatory pet peeve: I HATE those gold and black onyx rings, usually worn by extremely pale white men. So bad.

    Guys, mark it down in the books, because this is the first and possibly last time I'm gooing to admit this- I totally agree with Marc on these. Every day I see hundreds of girls wearing those stupid Ugg boots on campus. I cannot stand the sight of them, especially the pink ones.

    Button bown collars aren't my thing, although I do have a couple shirts with them, both of which were given as gifts. On one I don't really use the buttons, which I noticed was someone else's pet peeve. Its a more casual shirt, not really made to be dressed up, so I think I get away with it alright. The other one I never undo the buttons on. C'et la vie.

    l hate bow tied men in cheap suits and even cheaper rubber sole shoes. [​IMG] Â [​IMG] Â [​IMG] Also, l h8 academics that dress poorly in cheap unappropiate clothing. l also h8 men in jeans that wears puffy shirts. l am peeved by `Made in China' clothing. P.S: pink ugg boots suck majorly. P.S.S: rubber sole loafers are the most foul things possible. They are my pet hate. Suited men wearing [poor quality] rubber sole loafers should be horsewhipped and shot at dawn.

    Also, those white contrast-collar and cuffs shirts on most men -- if my memory serves me correctly, they are very Bill Lumberg from Office Space ("What's happening?").  Unless one is Tom Wolfe, or some unironic 50+ London banker, don't do it.

    disagree completely. I like them a lot. I'm not sure I even understand your argument as to why they don't look good

    [​IMG] Now, don't get me started. It seems that we can have our own web site just for pet peeves. I would categorize most of our pet peeves as mere symptoms of the CASUAL CANCER which has run rampant not only in our clothing but our manners and morals. Some examples: 1. Men in suits wearing knapsacks instead of carrying attache cases. 2. Men who use shoulder straps on their carry cases which totally distort the line of the suit and the shoulders. 3. Grown men wearing baseball hats with suits or even black tie. I saw a very distinguished public servant from a very fine and old family wear an NYPD baseball hat with black tie. 4. Cheap, clunky, and boxy shoes which make Frankenstein's shoes look like Lobb bespoke. 5. Shoe salesmen who will do anything to make a sale including the classic line that it can be worn for both dress and casual. 6. Men who are overweight parading around the streets in exercise suits. 7. Grown men wearing baseball jackets. I saw a picture of Henry Kissinger wearing a Yankees jacket. He looked ridiculous. 8. Men wearing those skimpy Italian sports shoes with suits. I'm going to stop now on doctor's order. My blood is boiling... [​IMG]

    Ugg's are absolutely disgusting.

    Various shades of balck worn together at an attempt to emulate a New Yorker or fashionista is terrible as well.
