    Yeah

    colored dress shirts
    Dress shirts which are remarkably poofy (difficult to even tuck into pants)
    Clarks norwegian stitch toe dress shoes (not square toes but I sold them about 6 months post SF)
    A black DKNY tie, which I made even worse by ironing.

    My suits were really bad:
    Black DKNY suit.
    2 Suits with pleats. Nothing against pleats in general, they just look horrible on me.

    I'll start:

    Multiple black trousers
    Multiple dark shirts
    Far too many t-shirts
    Far too many white "sports" socks


    I never understood this. Why do people buy white socks? If you're using them for "sports" you probably don't care about color anyway, so why not get black/gray?

    Also, what's wrong with dark shirts?
