Rolex watches and the like : can't stand a watch that has a case without a simple basic geometric shape. Scallop - what the hell kind of shape is that? Couldn't think off hand of a more expensive watch that is just plain ugly/inelegant. Actually there is one posted here often that is very ugly and likely very expensive but I can't remember the name. It has this case that can't decide if its a circle or a drunken square. Round toe lasted shoes - so called classical (Its tough to say if the classic denomination is really justified!). The funny thing is that I have never seen feet that have that round domed shaped toe extremity, so I can't think of a less appropriate shape-one that doesn't even remotely approximate the shape of toes Gunboats: if you're wearing gunboats you should be on a gunboat (any modern war vessel is acceptable) or at least sporting some modern battlefield weaponry. (please spare me the true purpose of gunboats). There is an exception for really good looking chicks (preferrably models) that may wear them if they want In this case it doesn't matter because noone is looking at the ugly shoes. I could summarize all the above by saying I hate things that don't pay attention to basic elegant shape and go overboard on useless details.
