    Most bespoke clothes shown here are waste of money except for PHGuido's.
    Cordovan shoes are only good when brand new and unworn.
    G&G shoes are ugly and occasionally poorly made.
    Barker Black shoes are terrible mediocrity with skulls.
    OCBD-barf
    Canvas belts- barf
    Tasseled loafers-barf, barf
    Pants that hemmed around one's ankle.
    Alden.
    Ralph Lauren Polo or Black Label aspirational crap.
    Oxford clothes.
    Incotex.
    Samuelson-barf.
    Valextra.
    Loro Piana.
    Cucinelli sweaters.
    Split toe ,norwegese uglyness.
    Wide spread collars


    If you ever met me in real life you'd spend the whole time throwing up [​IMG]

    Slim-fitting, high-water trousers--especially on folks with large feet and/or large upper bodies.

    Oh, this will be fun. I hate:

    Lavender
    Any green that isn't dark green
    Uncoventional shoe formats and details
    Gusset loafers (these deserve special mention)
    Antiquing
    Patterned linen pocket squares
    Actually, pretty much all linen pocket squares that aren't white
    Skinny lapels
    Split yokes
    'Slim fit'
    Roped shoulders
    Peak lapels on single breasted jackets
    Dangling, straight-line breast pockets
    Crazy-jester-hiding-in-my-pocket pocket square folds
    Shiny ties
    Ties with fancy stripes
    Ties wider than 3.5 inches
    Hacking pockets
    Ticket pockets
    Rounded barrel cuffs
    Non-blue, non-white, non-ecru shirts
    Cutaway collars
    High button stances
    Tie space
    Light tan shoes
    AE styling
    Not necessarily what Thom Browne sells, but anything that looks Thom Browne

    Foo - would have been more efficient to write "anything that doesn't look exactly like ME (or matt)"

    I think Matt likes some of that stuff. I will fight a war over gusset loafers if need be.

    He is going to have to rethink some of them, because from his list I like the following: Lavender Any green that isn't dark green Uncoventional shoe formats and details Gusset loafers (these deserve special mention) Patterned linen pocket squares Actually, pretty much all linen pocket squares that aren't white Rounded barrel cuffs Non-blue, non-white, non-ecru shirts Tie space Light tan shoes

    I can't remember the last time I saw a gusset loafer on SF or read that people like/love them.
