    The Ten Worst Ever Mens The Latest Fashions

    Every season, designers perform Lazarus-like feats, reviving styles we thought were banished to create purgatory. But although this summers Lou Dalton and Topman Design shows might have made you regret binning individuals bucket hats and relaxed-leg pants, there are specific pieces you are able to chuck safe within the understanding theyll never stand an opportunity of returning into fashion.

    Slogan T-shirts

    Whether youre with stupid, the only real factor your T-shirt should tell people is you comprehend the basics of fit and form. Slogan tees are meant to display to the world that you have a feeling of humour. They really just advertise the very fact youre a douchebag.

    Your tees dont need to be plain (although its no bad move). Graphic takes from designers like Package Neale, whose designs incorporate motifs for example vintage Coke logos and plane safety cards, put on humour more subtly. But puns or sexual invites are as inappropriate in your clothing because they could be yelled at other people on the street.

    Plus, there is no such factor like a female body inspector. We checked.

    Three-Quarter Length Trousers

    You might think, from the surfeit of mankles invading the streets, that trousers deliberately cut off mid-calf would save you precious minutes rolling your cuffs. But rather than hinting that youre a man so busy he cant find time for a pinroll, they actually paint you as one wracked by indecision, whose inability to choose between trousers and shorts left him entangled with their bastard child. Youre only one step away from cargo pants with legs that zip off.

    Look east, and there is a right way to wear cropped trousers. The key being that no one could mistake them for long shorts. A slightly relaxed, rather than calf-hugging cut, which ends just above the ankle see Matthew Millers Marlboro trousers, or the Japanese-inspired styles in Topmans new This Is Denim range lets you flash your trainers without looking like youve been bathing in Miracle Grow.

    Deep V-neck T-shirts

    If youre not a washed-up porn star, former Jersey Shore cast member or Ronaldo circa 2007, then youd better have the self-love to stop short of trussing yourself up in one of these. Coming to prominence around the same time as the metrosexual, these breast-baring slithers of jersey dont so much flaunt your gains as bizarrely feminise them no matter how much of a Lothario you think they make you look.

    Instead, stick to classic crew neck tees. And if you really must show off the results of benching PBs, then muscle fit styles are fine.

    Square-Toed Shoes

    Like Halloweens Michael Myers, these boxy, clunky, ugly yes, ugly excuses for footwear simply refuse to die. Were not sure (read: dont care) why they were invented exactly but despite how smart-casual you think they might look, or how comfortable they might be, we appeal to your humanity to chuck yours and save our eyes.

    Remember when Prada tried to make them happen? Nope? Exactly. If even Mrs. P cant make these work, no one can. So, scrap them, and stick to time-honoured silhouettes like classic round-toed brogues, Oxfords and Derbies instead. Your feet will thank you, and so will we.

    The Going Out Shirt

    Two misconceptions birthed this fashion monstrosity. First, that youre never dressed up without a proper collar (thanks for that, mother). Second, that youll make more of an impact on potential breakfast guests if youre wearing something that stands out (thanks, misogynistic pick-up artists).

    Hence the going out shirt: oversized, obnoxiously printed and unfailingly worn untucked and unbuttoned to near the navel. Its less a wingman, more a sartorial wing-clipping.

    But ugliness aside, the main issue is that you dont need a wardrobe dedicated to going out. Dress for where youre heading, not the fact that youre heading there. Were already drowning in dress codes. Dont invent another for the pub.

    Football Shirts

    Football shirts are lazy merchandise. The minor updates and array of home, away, and training kits are designed to part punters from their cash. Somewhere, a board is probably considering how to foist resort and cruise collections on their fans as well.

    The athleisure trend should make this kind of sportswear more palatable, but stylistically, the shirt itself is drowned out by the club; footballs tribalism means your outfit is accessorised with whatever baggage the crest brings with it.

    Opt instead for a neutral take on the style, like Henry Hollands tongue-in-cheek lad range, or the recently relaunched sportswear brand Admiral. If you must display your colours, try a subtler scarf or sock instead.

    Sagging Jeans

    Regardless of how much you can squat, no one wants to see the results bursting out of your denim. Supposedly inspired by the ban on belts in the US prison system, sagging jeans were adopted as an anti-authoritarian statement by L.A. gangs and the hip-hop stars they gave birth to. Unless youre either, letting your jeans drop below your buttocks is sartorially short sighted at best, cultural appropriation at worst.

    Jeans should sit on your hips to let the legs hang properly against yours, while tailoring should sit nearer your waist to prevent an acre of shirt appearing between your jacket closure and trousers. If your trousers fall down by themselves, congratulate yourself on sticking to that cardio regime and promptly reward yourself with some that actually fit.

    Gap Year Jewellery

    Unless youre Mãori or in a nineties boyband, theres no excuse for jewellery made from puka shells, beads, pebbles of dubious heritage or fraying strands of rope woven by this amazing Indian spirit healer, who really showed you how to discover yourself. You have a job now. Its time to let those pre-uni days go.

    Thats not to say jewellery is off the cards. Bracelets, cuffs, necklaces and rings are all fair game. Just choose simple styles that are minimal, lightweight, and act as an extension of your outfit rather than upstaging it.

    Oversized Belt Buckles

    Freud would probably have had something to say about this. Much like a Lexus LX or an extensive air rifle collection, the idea behind a brash and brassy oversized belt buckle is to let everyone know youre packing. But in reality it does exactly the opposite, not only exposing your deepest insecurities, but also your godawful sense of style.

    Leave the giant eagles, bull horns and ornate antique crockery-like styles to the cast of WWE and downsize your XXL belt buckle to something more run of the mill. Not only will your denim look better, people will stop mistaking you for a line dancing instructor too. Win-win, really.

    Crocs

    Its almost false advertising: with a name like Crocs youd if encountering these otherworldly objects for the first time be within your rights to expect masterfully crafted footwear luxuriously finished with reptile skin. But what you actually get is a pair of foam clogs. Foam. Clogs. No part of this sounds like its going to look good, does it?

    Initially taking off in the latter half of the noughties, Crocs were praised for their unparalleled comfort and purported medical benefits according to a number of (staggeringly unsuperficial) podiatrists.

    Frankly, no one cares how good your feet feel in them unlike the once much maligned Birkenstock sandal, these will never regain their stylish status. Mostly because they never had it in the first place.

    Want something lightweight, comfortable and summer-appropriate? Try a pair of espadrilles or driving shoes instead.

    Final Word

    Fashion is a funny thing: being cyclical in its nature, its little wonder certain fads resurface twenty years down the line. The above trends, however, are less out of place in time, more strange occurrences that we hope and pray will never repeat themselves.

      What is particularly concerning is that while the government ru1 around saying that you have a choice of which of several provide1 to use only 3 can process an application if you haven’t got a current passport and of those 3, 2 require you to have a photocard driving licence. That mea1 that a significant part of the population has no choice about which provider to use.
