When it comes to buying clothes the woman is usually the one that purchases clothes for the family. Currently in this sad state of female takeover even when it comes to men’s suits women are the head honchos in the buying decision. When I am assisting men in buying a suit I would often joke and ask, “what does the boss think?” I would always get one of two responses, first a light chuckle, then either he would say she’s coming or standing right beside him and she would then give her opinion. So I decided to interview a large group of fashion students to get their opinion on what they absolutely hate seeing men wear. To avoid bias I asked women of different age and social groups.
1.Mom jeans Get a pair of jeans that fit right not to baggy not to skinny and that are also not mom jeans! If your ever in the fitting room and a women is around simply ask for her opinion and if she would walk around with you.
2.Unless your over the age of 60.
3.Even though I love hip-hop and rap the culture can be very obnoxious, its cool too wear jewelry in all different shapes and forms, but once again, a man should command attention never ask for it.
4. bedazzled tees.
5. New era Winter hats: If its cold outside wear a toque, or any other actual winter hat.
6.Sleeveless Tees:Save the Sleeveless tees for the gym and for the beach
7.This is an easy one, girls don’t like it when guys overly sag their pants., or anything for that matter.
8.Ed hardy I worry for you if your still buying Ed hardy products.
9.Deep V-neck tees Even if you have the line in the chest to prove that your muscular it is still a complete no-no. Seek attention, never beg.
10.Full Fur coat: Its one thing when you’re a cocky rapper, but in real life unless you’re a pimp. ..Never! Fur on the lapels of a coat looks stylish though.
11.White tube socks: Only for the gym
12.Birkenstocks Simply no, yes they are very comfortable but you can also use a lot of different sandals that are just as comfortable that don’t look half as bad.
13.When it comes to mens style fit is the most important thing. Make sure what you are wearing is not to big or what most girls hate, too tight.
14.Nose rings are simply a no-no they are viewed as feminine even on Tupac.
15.Durags: pretty simple, just keep them at home
16. Drop crotch pantsOnly a very select few can wear these 90% of men should really steer clear.
17.Try and avoid hats like these and stay with the origninal team or a simple brand logo.
18.Cheesy t-shirts: When buying a t-shirt ask yourself if you would wear it a year from now.
20. Sneakers with suits. There is a big difference between a regular pair of sneaker and a grown man sneaker. Know this when pairing the two. Dan from tsbmen.com does an excellent job here.
21: instead of wearing crocs maybe try some native shoes their more comfy, and don’t look half as bad
What do you think about the list?
