    I don't agree with that one at all. There may be certain shades that don't work together, but I often find brown shoes/boots look great with black jeans.

    As an example,

    That is def not offensive, but I was really aiming for brown dress shoes with black dress pants.

    I think lower back taboos are really classless.

    When I first read the title of the thread, I thought it said "facial tattoos". [​IMG]

    Crane's Country Store has a point, but I'd say graphic/logo tees that have the name of the brand prominently displayed are usually pretty bad.

    Unless, of course, it's a Co-ed Naked tee.

    I don't see anything wrong with either of those.. The following are worse.

    -socks + shorts


    I don't see anything wrong with this. Socks are to keep your shoes and boots from stank.

    Harem pants.

    Just to poke fun...
    fat people in skinny jeans
    short people in nice designer clothing (nothing will ever look good on short people, sorry).

    Prominent branding and logos on anything, e.g. Abercrombie, Nike, D&G, Polo, etc. They should be paying us for their advertising instead of paying a premium for it, paying for the name.

    Sandals, ever.
    So what footwear do you suggest wearing on the hot black sand of the beaches in Hawaii?
    front tucked; back untucked
    That's what's called the way to drunk look. That's 3 AM style around most gin mills. LOL.

    Yep. Not to mention athletes foot really sucks. If you want to look like a carpenter in the Summer it's boots with socks, shorts and an untucked tee with an unbuttoned flannel on the cool morning days. Construction workers got the whole workwear thing down pat.
    Fucking monograms
    I don't know about this one. I suppose it all depends on the circle of people you hang with or want to hang with. Mehhhh i can take it or leave it.
    Harem pants. That all depends on what gender is wearing them and in what context. Just to poke fun... fat people in skinny jeans short people in nice designer clothing (nothing will ever look good on short people, sorry).
    O'Rly? Are we talking male or female? Both genders? I know plenty of short people from both sexes that look very good and well put together and they wear designer clothes.
    Prominent branding and logos on anything, e.g. Abercrombie, Nike, D&G, Polo, etc. They should be paying us for their advertising instead of paying a premium for it, paying for the name.
    B B B....But what about the brand whores? What will they ever do without clothes that have their favorite logo prominently displayed for all to see? I can hear them crying of the horror of it all.

    For clothing, yes,

    For bags/accessories, I disagree, nothing looks better than aged monograms Vuitton briefcases.
