Those beanie smurf style knit hats when it's not cold and you're not bald. I don't hate them per se, I just don't get the trend at all when it's above 60 degrees.

Question for you ladies who hate seeing guys in flip flops. What is your age range? Are you in a super upscale town or neighborhood? Most of the women that I've talked to (in their 20s and 30s) that I've had this discussion with says that flip flops are the best match for shorts...and I don't live in a super warm area. In fact it seems like every girlfriend I've had said flip flops and sandals are the way to go and sneakers are only good for hiking, gym, etc. Now I'm confused.

I should add that I don't like that look, or the shaving your head look unless you are actually mostly bald.
I must admit, this is one of my pet peeves. I call it the Russian Mafia look. Do guys actually think women like this look? Women like hair they can run their fingers through, not non-hair. How did it become trendy to look like a skin-head member of the Aryan Nation?

The other thing I can't get my mind around is 40+ guys who wear hipster clothes and skateboard clothes. I have no comprehension of that. They look ridiculous.

any of that Tommy Bahama stuff (unless you're retiring to the tropics)
boring colors - there are colors outside of neutrals
Men over the age of 25 or so still wearing skater & surfer clothes or hoodie jackets for casual unless they are partaking in a skating, surfing or athletic kind of activity
athletic wear worn as casual wear - put on some real clothing!
t-shirts with logos and/or dumb sayings
Ed Hardy stuff & anything similar to it - ugly, tacky graphic tees, basically
True Religion jeans with their hideous pockets
those "outdoorsy" looking kind of boots (don't know if there's a name for them), often with a really chunky sole
cargo shorts or anything camo print


The biggest complaint I have is ILL FIT. Too many men wear too baggy clothing, including their suits (get a tailor!!!!!!!!), or there are the young hipster types who wear way too tight (no one wants to see the outline of your balls).
what else is there and what is wrong with polo shirts?

I like the look (always have) and last time I checked, I was a woman. My sons also get short/buzz cuts.
