    You know this is gonna get silly fast.

    ^ somehow, I could actually see you pull off a vest though...

    Um, yeah, for years I never thought I'd ever wear a pink oxford. Love 'em now. Somehow with jeans and some sharp boots, it's on the money. Reminds me it's all about how you wear it...

    But to your point:
    cycling jerseys as streetwear.
    Those dumb barracks-style drab caps all the emo db's are wearing.
    Bangs.
    A moustache.
    Polarized sunglasses.
    Real motorcycle gear without a bike.
    Jodphurs.
    Chaps.
    A cowboy hat unless I'm in NM and the hat is straw.
    A bolo dress tie.
    A blue blazer with gold buttons
    Seersucker
    A derby or any straw hat (except NM - see above)
    A cane
    Platorm shoes or bell bottoms
    Perforated or mesh anything

    More later after my shivers go away...

    Why on earth would you not wear polarized sunglasses?

    My list:

    argyle
    tassel loafers
    jorts
    cargo pants/shorts
    sweater vests
    bowties
    camo
    polyester work out wear (esp. Adidas)
    cowboy hats/boots
    carpenter jeans
    anything purple

    The reflective ones, silly. However...

    But see - that goes with my 'jodphurs' hangup.


    I'd also never wear this (sadly, by Paul Smith):

    purple is like the most universally flattering colour

    Unless you're green.

    Dude, no way. I so called chaps first. 'Assless' was assumed.

    There are very few things mentioned in this thread that I'm sure I'd actually NEVER wear. The closest is probably drop crotch pants. I've yet to see a pair I thought looked good incorporated into a fit and even on the runway I've rarely liked them. I'm hesitant to say never though.

    Most of the rest of the stuff I do/could imagine myself wearing someday. Or at least I wouldn't wager a lot against it. I'm not entirely sure what the situation would be where I'd be wearing denim shorts, but I have a long life ahead of me.

    I want in...

    • Bootcut pants (too skinny to pull this off)
    • Plaid flannel shirts (already did this in the early 90's...looked retarded then, looks retarded now)
    • Braided leather belts (I might consider if I am a fat bastard that keeps gaining weight cause these belts do not have pre-punched holes)
    • Down vest (just looks dumb)
    • Dress sneakers (those hybrid dress looking shoes with rubber soles)


    How does a down vest look dumb? That's a curious statement.

    Polyester or synthetic pants/anything unless I'm working out (which is typically never), skinny skinny jeans, technical clothing, anything neon, striped dress/sport shirts, stud belts, bootcut pants, cotton socks, hm...

    I guess "dumb" is a bit of an overstatement but I never understood the point of it.

    It obviously has to be cold when you are wearing a down vest but doesn't that leave your arms cold?

    I would never wear a lot of that tacky shit that comes from Rick Owens and Jil Sanders.

    I don't think anyone should ever wear that.

    (Unless it's on the clearance rack at Urban Outfitters -- the Twilight Zone of fashion -- in which case all rules go out the window.)
