    Kenneth Cole shoes and those who not only think, but insist, that an odd sportcoat and pants constitute a "suit".

    That - and people who don't appreciate orange briefcases... [​IMG]

    I once tried to wear a striped shirt with pinstriped pants and a striped tie. Luckily my gf stopped me before I could leave the house.


    ... I'm sure there's more.

    I was given a pair of Crocs for a recent birthday and was offered the chance to take them back to the shop if I didn't like them. I kept them... [​IMG]

    Don't feel too bad, I own a pair of Kenneth Coles from my pre-forum days. Damn those are some ugly shoes...
    Got ya beat, I had square toe Aldoes back in my interning days freshman year of college. AND, First ever interview, bought a CK suit, and wore the CK patch label on the outside as my mom told me it was normal (meaning she wanted to brag about the brand). 1 hour interview and not one mention of it from the interviewer. Got the job, maybe she thought my naivete was cute.

    Once took a suit coat back because it is was too short. I was showing some cuff and not one other person at this party had any cuff showing. Thought mine was too short.

    Went on a button down collar kick for a short while.

    Seeing all the Cole Haan posts, I had looked for a pair of square toed Haan's because I thought they were coming to the forefront. Thankfully I never bought a pair.

    Button down collars a crime? Say it ain't so! I love my OCBDs! They're not for all occasions, but they definitely have their place.

    In 1989-90 you could have caught me sporting a pair of light blue Z. Cavaricci jeans with a double belt (that's not a typo). I thought it was a great buy since both belts came with the jeans. I finished off the look with a nice pair of Giorgio Brutini shoes complete with the metal tip.

    I have worn some truly shit-ious outfits.
