I've been wearing the same brand/type of jeans since Y2K.
Yes, my wife does most of my clothes shopping for me. I'm that guy. But I don't care, clothes mean so little to me any more.
Which brings me to today's gripe session. I cannot stand guys who wear trendy shoes. For whatever reason, it drives me mad.
To me, shoes are a lot like referees or umpires in sports. If you don't notice them, they are performing their job to perfection. If they look like like bowling shoes, I immediately question your sanity.
Take these shoes as an example:
I've seen a dude walk out of the men's room at work wearing almost these exact shoes. Are you kidding? I don't care if these are being worn on every runway or are featured in "Cool Guy" magazine, they're f'n hideous and you know it. You must be the type of person who wants to be known as "with it" and that means I'll never like you. I'm not joking.
Or maybe you have shoes like these:
Oh OK, I get it, you're "rugged, go hiking on the weekend guy" right? Go read GQ magazine and trim your eyebrows. Those buckles are a disgrace and so are you. I bet you even own a pastel colored sweater that all the young dudes are wearing today. Stop it already.
I know, "Hey know-it-all, what kind of shoes do you wear?" Well, I'll show you:
I could not agree with you more my friend. The "Trendy Shoes" guy to me likes to show they are in touch with fashion and love to be different. I say "Ohhh good for youuuuu!!!!" They are also that same guy that loves to wear a lot of the other things I'm about to get into.
First, you have the "Cool Hat" guys. The guys that look like they have an Easter Bonnet on their head to me but act like everything is normal when they are speaking (while wearing the hat) and I should look at them as if nothing is odd.
The perfect example is none other then "Mr. Perfect", Tom Brady. Now we have to see more of "Mr. Trendy" and his "wanna be tough" rants on the sidelines since the Pats are going back to the Super Bowl. Ugh.
However, this look really sums it up for me. Like nails to a chalkboard.
Next you have the guys that wear their shirt half in their pants. The "Half Tucked" look or what I heard it being referred to as the "Shirt Mullet". Why? Who came up with this fashion trend that have some fashion wannabes walking around with a look that is simply sloppy and uncalled for. I guess they said "OK, lets develop a look that makes a man wear a horrendous looking belt buckle, tuck in just one side of the front part of his shirt. Put it in "GQ" or "Details" magazine and see if it sticks". Bingo! What do you know? It stuck and it has followers.
I am in no way the picture of fashion, but I hope they find that person who came up with this and make them watch the movie "Glitter" 30 times straight in a locked room.
Jeans, T-Shirt and a Baseball hat on backwards is trendy enough for me!
