    What do you dislike that most other forum members seem to regard highly? I'll start:

    Split-toe shoes.

    I know the EG Dover is a forum favorite. I like the last shape but can't get past the split-toe.

    Dislike may be too strong a word, but I don't get the JL RTW love over say JM Weston.

    Allen Edmunds. I understand there is a great quality/price ratio and you can easily find them on sale and some of the styles are nice but no matter what I will always see them as "old man shoes". Perhaps I dislike them without reasonable cause but thats still how I feel about them.

    We've done this before, but it's still fun.

    Not for me:
    90 percent of Lobbs
    Gaudy, unnatural antiquing (I'm looking at you, Lobb cirrus. Along with Kiton, etc.)
    Ascots, though I don't really think they're that popular here. Unwearable on anyone not eligible for the AARP.
    Clothing that looks too new/slick
    Turtlenecks with suits
    Suspenders, aka braces
    Most wingtip balmorals
    Valextra

    Also don't get the fetish for handwork in RTW shirts and the appeal of certain SF-adored brands, such as Isaia.

    I've warmed to split-toes, though I still don't own any.
