But the mistakes don't stop there. Men embrace everything from a necktie being too long (or too short) to pants riding too high (or too low).

"Men have a tendency to put on whatever is easy and makes them feel most comfortable," says Jon Morales, vice president of product development and design at Hickey Freeman. "They're thinking about other things when they get dressed--making the next deal, going to the next baseball game." It's easy for them to overlook small details. But, says, Morales, "It's small details that matter most," when you want to look good.

Speedos. Yuck ! You see far too many on European beaches and it ain't pretty !

Men who think a suit and tie no matter how tired, old and stained is better, smarter and more respectable than a clean and more up-dated "smart casual" look.

Trousers that are so high waisted they almost reach your armpits ( older men).

The new trend of wearing trousers that fall half way down your legs and show you boxer shorts. Impractical and looks completely idiotic, also suggesting that you are a fashion victim and therefore a sheep , hence an idiot.

Men who try to follow fashion rather than finding their own style and what suits them.

Really baggy trousers that look more like nappies ( diapers)

People who think that large flowers, checks, and spots are compatible and wear them all at once.

Men who wear socks with shorts ( even worse if they are knee length socks, a very British sin). If it's hot enough to wear shorts it is hot enough to be bare feet. IMO it makes you look about 6 years old. ( I recently saw Charlie Sheen on TV wearing just that and he looked completely bizarre).

But Sartorial lapses are also very much in evidence in the Female specie too...

Not so much a fashion thing as a grooming thing, but THE worst thing a man can do to spoil his look in my book is the comb-over. Embrace your baldness for chrissakes! Not only are you not fooling anyone with that ten-foot long patch of hair you have coiled around your head, but you are also giving away the store about your own insecurities. Deal.

grillz = those ridiculous mouthpieces made popular by hood rats. Think of the grille on your car, and imagine that on your teeth. Do you watch any MTV at all?

P.S. Come to think....I wanna move to wherever it is that people don't know what grillz are....

Sandals and socks.

White tennis shoes and black or dress socks.

Hide the crack, even if you're a plummber.

Wearing your jeans so loose that you have to hold them up while you walk or ride you skateboard.

Extremely offensive tees. I don't care what you say you're doin with some other dude's girlfriend. If it's all true, she's probably bumpin it with your brother or your dad! This goes for the girlz too. Also, get that stud off your tongue! I can't hear you mumble. If you need to get a pair of heavy-duty zirconium encrusted tweezers to make that Dinamoe hum or get your freak-on, so be it. Here's a lighter. Don't forget to sterilize em.

Wearin your cap sideways.

All the tats. Why do you need a tat on your neck and your face? Do you WANT Hep C?

What's the chain and all the keys for? Are you the janitor? Having the hippest cell phone, but not a bank account and living in mom and dad's basement! Priorities, people!
