It’s Spring. That means it’s time to clean out your closet and declutter.
If you open your closet and any of the 26 articles of clothing on this list are inside of it, the reality is that you need to start throwing things in the garbage.
Perhaps also consider building a dumpster fire.
Each and every item on this list has no place in an adult male’s wardrobe. Some of these pieces have simply outstayed their welcome, others have been and always will be fashion abominations. You probably just didn’t know it when you purchased them.
Now we’re not asking for much here. We’re not asking you to go out and buy the newest trend or throw money down on a pair of designer shoes.
We’re just saying that in these cases, less is most definitely more.
This is the male equivalent of a girl's 'going out' top. It's the shirt in your wardrobe that you think makes you look like you're ready to party.
Maybe it has some pinstripes. Maybe you think the colour is awesome. Maybe it's just black (don't wear that anymore).
Whatever it is, it's probably too much. Your regular shirts should be fine enough to 'go out' in. Don't try so hard.
Unless you bedazzled your jeans yourself and want to show off your handiwork, there's really no reason to wear jeans with any kind of detail on the seat.
While we're on the topic of flip-flops, we should mention that the Adidas single banded sandals you wore in middle school should be long gone by now.
Yes, we know Mark Zuckerberg wears them, but let us be clear. Mark Zuckerberg cannot dress.
Dude, you look like Guy Fieri.
OK, wear a three piece suit. Sure.
But the vest look is mostly over. Anything that looks natural when paired with a fedora is over.
Tie dye T-shirts belong at children's birthday parties (where they are hand made) and the far, far recesses of your memory -- a hazy, immature, high school memory.
I hope I'm being clear.
This one goes out to all the guys who were wearing ties in the 90s and are still wearing those same ties today.
The actual purpose of the Teva as an article of clothing remains unclear. Are they for running? No. Lounging on the beach? Surely there are better shoes for that. Hiking? Wouldn't one want to go with a close-toed shoe for that?
One can only come to the conclusion that these shoes were created to embarrass whoever is wearing them.
And you don't want to embarrass yourself, do you?
It is highly, highly unlikely that you can pull off a fedora. If you really think you can wear one, ask multiple people (some who love you, some who don't) if you're right.
You're going to need multiple OKs.
