    general obsession with "fashion"-oriented "designer" names as opposed to appreciation of classic, timeless style.

    I mentioned this in another thread, but I think I would categorize the guy I saw wearing a suit with crocs as making a fashion mistake (at least the crocs were black, I suppose).

    That one can go both ways. I think appreciating only classic and timeless styles can be a mistake too.

    Shirts, t-shirts, polos, etc with shoulder seams falling well off the shoulder joint and sometimes half-way down the upper arm.

    I mention it because I used to wear some ill-fitted shirts and now it is the number one thing I look at when I see a guy.

    Thank god I still check out a woman's gluteal, pectoral, and abdominal regions first, not the fit of their blouse, skirt or pants. [​IMG]

    Hard to believe Shaq can even buy a suit 2 sizes too big on him.

    dragon, the operative word here for me is "obsession," but yes, i understand what you mean.

    More accurately, hard to believe that Shaq would buy a custom made suit that is way too big for him (or that the tailor would not try to fit the suit properly).

    I thought it meant you were able to hide a piece under your clothing if you wore outifts two sizes or better yet four sizes too big.

    This is the new look people - get with it ! [​IMG]
