    by the sounds of some of your lists I'm curious to see what you do wear consistently.

    but anyways here are my nevers:
    Barker Blacks, Augusta boots, Air Jordans, watches that show the gears on the front, 100% polyester anything (unless it is a pair of adidas/gym track pants).... it's late, can't really think of much else right now... will add to this small list later on I'm sure.

    I have worn a lot of the things mentioned in this thread.

    I would never wear....
    - a luxury watch [unless I receive it as a gift; so almost never]
    - a braided belt
    - a beaded bracelet/jewelry aside from my wedding ring
    - pleated trousers
    - common projects/luxury sneakers

    i am sure there are others, but really my tastes have changed so dramatically in the past 5 years i hate to put very many limits on my wardrobe. I'd never have thought i'd wear boatshoes, but i saw them done well, same with 100+ dollar denim, and skinny suits, etc etc.

    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.
    Hold on there Cowboy, wife beaters are a staple of my Russian gangster meets hillbilly-rocker steez. On topic, I don't believe I'll ever wear: pastel polos yellow a hoodie under a tee shirt fake diamonds drop crotch pants a straw boater

    Waa? I don't think I've seen this done, but I imagine it looking absolutely atrocious.

    That said, I'll never drink...

    LIAR!

    I never thought I'd wear CP, either, until I realized that it's apparently fucking impossible for a cheap sneaker company to come out with something that isn't overdesigned. CP is so damn simple and clean. I wouldn't mind wearing a diffusion or copycat brand that used cheaper materials; hell, I wouldn't mind creating such a company, I'd probably make millions.

    That said, I found my pair on deep discount and have no complaints about taking the plunge. I just wish people didn't have to pay a premium on something that doesn't look like fucking speedcats.

    I like my poorman CPs, adidas Rod Lavers Tournament Edition. Still has one small bit of ugly green on the back but otherwise I like them a bunch. Definitely wish that normal, plain sneakers weren't rare though.

    I would never wear a shawl neck sweater. Tried one on and it felt like I was being swallowed by a giant vagina.

    Yeah, those tend to be considered the closest runners-up around here but still...

    Ok. I'll call you during the week. There will be free booze.
