    With the caveat that you should never say never, but:

    1. Boat shoes, pleated khakis, essentially anything obviously "preppy". I overdosed on that between grade 6 and 8, and have not touched it since.
    2. Anything that has touched Ghulkan's body. I mean, maybe he is a cool dude, but really.
    3. Cowboy boots. Cowboy hat. I just can't pull it off.
    4. Jorts (Full disclosure: I had a pair in grade 7. They seemed stylish and practical at the time.)
    5. Teva style sandals - they are useless, ugly, and stink like death. (Full disclosure: I had a pair, and wore them with my Jorts).
    6. Vest worn casually - about 1/1000 people can pull it off and look good. It's not me, and chances are, it's not you.
    7. Sheer anything - it's a no win situation. If you are not in perfect shape, you just look stupid. If you are, you're just a douche
    8. Wifebeaters - see 7.
    9. A Patek Phillipe (obviously, I would totally. But I just want someone to take this as a challenge and send me one.)
    10. A beard - Again, I've tried. But instead of looking like a cool Chinese warrior, I looked sorta like the rat faced foil in Kung Fu movies who spends the entire time getting his ass kicked. Not a good look.

    For anyone who put down "bootcuts", I call bullshit unless you are over 40, 35 if you are a young fogey.

    what do people consider hoodies? Any jacket with a hood made out of fleece or loop terry? I don't like hoodies but there ar plentry of hooded jackets I'd wear.

    1. Converses of any kind or shoes that look like them
    2. Drop crotch pants
    3. Clothing made for something I don't do or am not going to do while I'm wearing it (photographer's vest/fishing vest/cowboy hat/cowboy boots/motorcycle boots [and I have two of them]/etc)
    4. Louis Vuitton shoes of any kind...they look awful
    5. bow ties (I teach a class and a professor I work with wears them when he goes hiking...) in everyday wear (of course I'll wear them for black tie affairs or other formal occasions)
    6. thick flannel anything
    7. Wayfarers (played out years ago)
    8. Huge wallets (I keep about 40 bucks usually in two twenties and other than that just need my gym card, student id, faculty id, license, cc, and atm...all easily fits in a slim card wallet)
    9. Rings other than college or wedding
    10. Metallic or patent leather shoes
    11. Flamboyant tees
    12. skin tight outerwear. I wear SLIM outerwear but I see some in the WAYWT that are literally skin tight and it looks ridiculous...not stylish. Especially when the wearer isn't in all that good of shape.
    13. Jeans that are cut so that you have to have the sag look with them. There's a piar of Nudies that look terrible from the back because of this yet I see a lot of people wearing them.

    Maybe I should make a post called "What can't you wear" and 75% of you guys can move your lists there.

    A lot of people pretend that the items themselves are the problem and not their inability to pull them off. Perhaps I interpreted the topic as more of "stuff I hate" That said, I'll never wear... - Clarks - School / Sports branded clothing - Urban brands - Nike, Rebook, etc..

    Meet me at GetSmart's house at nine. Bring your wallet.

    No metallic shoes? Oh, man, I was just going to ask you and your boss's opinion of these as hiking shoes...
