I was just going to say Speedos. Do they know how awful they look?

If I have to think of another one, baseball caps. Boring and unbecoming. They serve a purpose on baseball players.

-Baseball caps. Backwards, sideways. Brim front. He11 if pro baseball players only wear them during practice and during games why must your nonathletic self wear them every friggin place you go especially in a decent restaurant. In a sports bar, who cares. McDonald's, so what. But when the average entrée is 25 and there is dim lighting, candles and tablecloths and three forks, remove your stupid hat. A SC C 0 C K S hat is not amusing when you graduated 16 years ago.

-no shirt at all. In my little slice of suburban he11 there are 3-4 middle age men with beer guts and back hair that mow their lawn/garden/walk their dogs without a shirt. When they look in the mirror they see their 19 physique. WE DON'T. Cover that mess up.

-jewelry beyond a wedding ring. That diamond earring the size of my big toe is fake and we all know it.

-sports gear. Dude, you're 41. You were never a Dallas Cowboy. You never worked for the Cowboys organization. You live in New Hampshire. You've never been to Texas. You don't know anyone who lives in Texas. You never even played football! Do you really need to wear a no. 9 throwback everywhere you go?

I generally hate:

polo shirts - unless you're golfing or 80, NO
shorts so long they might as well be pants
shorts so short you look like you're a gay 80s aerobics instructor
white socks worn up to the knee with shorts (are you a baseball player?)
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).

Enlightening hear what you don't like but how about what you do like. I'm thinking suits and turtleneck sweaters?

I think the general rule is women want men (excepting a few select men) to wear as much as possible and men want women to wear as little as possible...is it much more complicated than that?

I don't like the one who roll up his trouser legs because the jeans are too long...

Meh - I'm not going to criticize a man for carrying a backpack, especially nowadays with laptops, etc. I'm a woman. In my first job I was issued a laptop and a one-shoulder laptop carrying case. After three months of one aching shoulder I ponied up for a backpack style laptop holder, and that's what I use now always for to and from work. I'll take bodily health over fashion any day when it comes to that one.
