    In terms of ridiculous - inappropriate clothes worn, what have so far
    been the worst fashion crimes (whatever your humorous or serious
    definition of that is) you've committed and/or that you've also seen any
    straight and/or gay men commit (be they former or current friends,
    work colleagues, relatives) and please describe what was worn and
    why it was such a disaster.

    A lot of young Indians here in Sydney likes to wear thongs with jeans [​IMG]
    That's one thing I would NEVER do.

    Don't feel too bad, I own a pair of Kenneth Coles from my pre-forum days. Damn those are some ugly shoes...

    I had a Member's Only jacket in the 80's.

    Those hideous things will never come back in style.

    I was joking about them never coming back. I have seen them recently...

    Not about owning the jacket, mind you. It was baby blue. The horror...

    I used to dress in only 99.999% Bijan. I'm sure you can imagine how embarrassed I was at the big timers' conventions. Luckily I've stepped it up to the full 100% these days.

    In the late 80's I would often wear cordavan colored pinch-penny kiltie tassle loafers paired with a suit.

    Last week I wore a pair of Bill's Model I commemorative khaki's, saw myself in a mirror and those trousers have now been relegated to yard work.

    -Buttoning all buttons in jacket
    -Showing too much/too little cuff
    -Kenneth Cole shoes (though slightly rounded square toes, not duck bill monstrosities)
    -Black (and I suspect poly blend) suit
    -Unbuttoned DB suit
    -Mismatched suit separates
    -Un-tucked shirt look
    -Unbuttoned shirt over t-shirt look
    -Man-jewelry

    Probably more too.
