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.

Pretty much anything that Hermes Man wears, I will not buy or wear...

specifically...

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

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.
