Discrimination! Where is it written that jewelry is just for women?

Hey, the OP asked for folks' opinions. Clearly, this is sheena12's opinion. It's not like you have to agree.

OMG PLEASE no more skinny jeans on men, please.

Clothes that basically look like women's clothing (see above). Especially those v-neck tshirts that are fitted at the waist and have a deep V - that's a woman's shirt!!!

Baseball caps of any sort - if you want to wear a hat, get a cool hat. I can dig that.

The silky sport jerseys.

I don't like fitteds.

I like normal worn in baseball caps, though.

My BIL wears denim shorts, sandals and socks, and pastel guayabera shirts all the time. He just turned 40 but he dresses like he's 80.

I do think flip flops are reasonable though when you live somewhere really hot.

I don't think flip flops are horrible in hot climates either - in fact, I prefer them to leather sandals on men. Less intentional.

More things I really can't stand - Camo gear, baseball caps, wife beater shirts - also any tank top on a man, mullets, fades, shaved heads, Long pointy designer loafers, and men who wear their cell phones as accessories.

Hawaiian shirts. Only middle-aged, big-bellied men or hipsters wear them. Neither is appealing.
Those yellow-brown Timberland boots. MY EYES.
Wearing those slouchy beanies in the middle of summer. Eurgh. It's wool, wear it in winter.
Jeans that go down to your knees, 'gangsta thug' style.
T-shirts that are so long and baggy that it can double as a man-dress.
Gold chains.
Snapbacks. Especially when they sit on the guy's HAIR rather than head.
Varsity jackets. This is even more cringeworthy because I live in Australia, where people who partake in sports don't really receive those jackets, so it's just embarrassing that they're copying something that only really happens in the USA.
T-shirts with stupid, misogynistic sayings on them.
Those hipster chinos with the cuffs roll up. Your pants just look like they don't fit you.
Tank tops. I just don't like them... they're only appropriate at the beach IMO.
Jesus sandals.
Those really pointy-ass dress shoes. Especially if they're white.

I love men in Speedos!

And frankly, I don't worry much about what men are wearing. But I do have my limits: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_owzjJuyS1J..._1024x1280.jpg

I did really hate the dark, striped shirts with suit coats & jeans fad the 'stylists' were trying to impose on men a few years back. And I hated the hoodies under blazers the stylists came up with, and the silly little zip-up sweater jacket whatever thingies the men's store catalogues (even posh stores that should have known better) were pushing. You know, and the men were supposed to have ties on under the zip-up thingies.

Any time 'stylists' try to impose ghetto trends on middle class men (because in third-rate fashion schools, they were taught some bass-ackward theory of fashion trickling up, rather than down), I think the looks are truly sucky.

Mostly though, it's flipped-up hair, scrawny little sideburns, "arched" eyebrows, visible hair product, and backward-combed greazer hair, that I can't stand to look at.
