what about socks and sandals...

With the boys in New York, Molly, Mike and I went to Lion Pub for some after dinner drinks and I spotted a gentleman who, based upon his clothing, had apparently recently arrived in a European Time Machine from 1991. I imagined him emerging from a foggy chamber, Ace of Base blasting in the background as he removed his neon-sided plastic sunglasses and allowed them to dangle around his neck by their wetsuit material holder. Watching this guy maneuver himself through the bar prompted me to list my TOP 5~

Most Offensive Male Fashion Faux Pas:
5. Tightened sunglass holder
4. Men in loose tank tops/muscle pants
3. Fanny Packs
2. Elastic waist denim*
1. Bo-Lo Ties



* Runner Up for Molly’s suggestion of “Jean Shorts.” Nice call…

also I nominate " mandels " as unacceptable foot-wear. along
with the flip flop and shoes with no socks, all of which
should be outlawed. like lieutenant dan said take care
of your feet..

Shorts are always bad on men, unless:

1) They are cargo shorts and the man happens to look like someone in an Abercrombie and Fitch ad.
2) You are exercising. Once exercising is done, shorts should be immediately removed.
3) You are playing an organized sport (see exercising above).
4) The "shorts" in question are swim trunks.

Otherwise--shorts are always bad.
I think I may be alone on this one--but I had to speak up.

--Jean cut-off shorts are unacceptable. Always. Without exception.
--Another turn-off: Briefs. I would rather they didn't wear underwear.
--And, of course, the mullet. Bad.

I'm done now.

What the fuck is a fanny-pack?

honorary roomie said...

poor elliot- i can see how that would traumatize you- in america, a 'fanny' is just your 'bum'. a 'fanny pack' then is just a little purse you wear around your waist while on vacation. although i'm sure you're vision of it was much more interesting.

Oh...we call it a bum-bag.
