    Simple Question, but I'm interested in the variety of answers. What items of generally SF-approved clothing do you avoid or outright refuse to wear in your personal style?

    Personally, I completely avoid anything with any representation art. I like geometric patterns, even paisley, but the moment it crosses the line into being a representation of something else, I can't wear it.

    Bracelets, bright coloured chinos, cravates, bow ties, most loafers.

    I have a feeling this was asked before.

    I already see enough of these brands and logos around here, without me adding to it.

    [camera zooms in to the Pitti Palace. pan to lone man in navy suit and discreet tie.]

    JAYJAY: Excuse me, who are all these people?

    GYPSY/ROMA: No one knows. They come suddenly then depart. They give no alms, and their jackets are tight.

    JAYJAY: Thank you. Here are ten Euros.

    [JAYJAY begins to walk toward the Arno. Crosses bridge. Enters restaurant.]

    JAYJAY: May I have a table?

    [Waiter examines JAYJAY, looking down and then slowly up]

    WAITER: I assume this will be a table for one, signore?

    JAYJAY: Yes, how did you know?

    ^^^That really got a laugh out of me. The scenario is not that far fetched, you know.

    I don't wear black full brogues. They are of non appeal to me.

    edit: is this english? 'They don't appeal to me' didn't sound snooty enough for me.
