Two men’s fashion trends irk me:
1. The horizontally buttoned bottom shirt button. This button goes against established tradition by buttoning from top-to-bottom, instead of right-to-left (unless you’re a girl. Your backwards buttoning is just weird). This lowly button makes you think extra hard at 7 in the morning just to put on a shirt. There’s no possible benefit to this. Just stop.
2. Lack of a shirt pocket. An egregious error. If you don’t carry a cell phone (that’s mobile for all one of you European readers) to work, most likely you carry some sort of ID. Where to put them? Both in the same pants pocket? With your keys? C’mon, clothing companies, it’s
almost 2012. Know your audience.
Surely you also have clothing pet peeves. Also, Happy New Year.
One thought on “These two men’s fashion trends really grind my gears”
Great article, Ed! Totally agree with you on both fronts. Especially shirts not having pockets…
