Lawrence: The boy band that strugs together, stays together.

James: Fedoras: Distracting people from everything else that's wrong with boy bands since 1996.

2. Shirts with profanity on them.

James: Chances are if you own some of these shirts you're already banned from being near schools and playgrounds, so I guess it's sorta no harm, no foul.

Lawrence: I mean, if you're not offending the entirety of the human race with what you're wearing, are you even wearing anything at all?

3. Clothing with any sort of molly reference.

James: Goes great with the molly-water, butt-chugging funnel you bought in Daytona Beach.

Lawrence: Please turn yourself down until you no longer exist on a physical plane.


4. Capri pants.

Lawrence: Looking like Rafael Nadal minus, like, all of the wins ever.

James: Aren't hand-me-downs supposed to go the other way?

5. Gladiator sandals.

James: Nah, not entertained.

Lawrence: Buttholitus Maximus.

6. Leather pants.

James: Bye, non-roasted sperm.

Lawrence: Swamp-ass incubators.

7. Leather tank tops.

Lawrence: The contradiction inherent in a leather tank top alone is enough to make me sweat bullets.


8. Speedos.

James: Smuggling in limes one at a time isn't gonna solve the citrus crisis, bruh.

Lawrence: Can smuggled grapes get a tan line?

9. This.

James: Wow. Professional dart players have brutal rookie hazing rituals.

Lawrence: Thanks for helping me aim when I kick you in the nuts for wearing such a stupid fucking piece of clothing.

10. Boater hats.

Lawrence: You're not Andre 3000.

James: Please just float away forever.

11. Hoodies under blazers.

16. White sunglasses.

Lawrence: Douche tested, Scott Storch approved.

James: Write "Soulja Boy" on the lenses or you are blowing it.

17. Skechers Shape Ups.

James: If improving your butt selfies is really a goal, then your summer bucket list needs work.

Lawrence: Please, go ahead and tell me what the point of warm weather scarf is. It's OK, I'll wait.

19. Tevas

James: I didn't know "spelunking with Obama" was on your itinerary.

Lawrence: At this point you might as well go full narc dad and wear some white socks too.


20. Beanies.

James: I guess this is how Mazda Miata owners spot one another in the wild.
