17 Items Of Clothing Adult Men Should Think Twice About Wearing

Everyone puts their jeans on one leg at a time. Just make sure it's the right pair of jeans!

Posted on

1. Baggy cargo shorts

Here's the thing: If you need so much pocket space to carry stuff, just get a backpack, a tote bag, or literally ANYTHING ELSE so your pockets aren't bulging. If you're not putting anything in these pockets...THEN WHY ARE THEY THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE?!

2. Toe shoes

In the time since man has recorded history, there have been a great many mysteries: What happened to Amelia Earhart? Is the Loch Ness Monster real? Why does Amy Adams not have an Oscar? But the greatest mystery of them all is: Why do people think it's so critical that they show off their toes to the world?

3. Sandals with socks

If you're wearing sandals, it's because you want your feet to breathe. Socks do not allow your feet to breathe! So it literally does not make sense to wear socks with sandals, from a purely logical standpoint.

4. Pleated shorts

Thighs are awesome. Thick thighs, thin thighs — let your thighs BREATHE a little! Pleating does the exact opposite of that, covering up men's thighs in an unflattering away. Just say "no" to this imperfect illusion.


13. Big studded belts


Belts are like Beyoncé's backup dancers: They should complement the main attraction (in this case the pants, not Queen Bey) but not detract from it. Big studded belts are an eyesore that should not be tolerated under any circumstances.

14. Fedoras

Are you Indiana Jones? We didn't think so. You're not saving ancient artifacts, you're not battling Nazis, and thus you're probably not qualified to be rocking a fedora.

17. Capris


When you wake up in the morning and put on your outfit for the day, you need to make a commitment: Choose shorts, or choose pants. Sorry, but you can't have your cake and eat it too. CAPRIS WILL JUST NOT CUT IT.
