In today’s fashion-forward world with wide reaching influences from European style, the men in our lives are getting more and more fashion conscious by the minute. Being metrosexual and taking care of yourself by primping and pampering has become a daily routine for some men but others, simply haven’t got the memo yet!
This article is for the boys who think they can slide by in those socks and sandals because women don’t notice or care too much. News flash: We do! There are many faux pas that men make when it comes to fashion but these five are just unacceptable.
Wearing Flip Flops Without A Beach In Sight
Yes, the weather might be hot but when you live in the city without a beach for miles, you should not be Wearing Flip Flops. They aren’t attractive, they’re bad for your arches and should really be resigned to the sand dunes—not for shopping with the missus on an average Saturday.
Also, when you do wear flip flops, please be sure your tootsies have had an overhaul, nails clipped, and feet scrubbed!
And while we’re on the topic of footwear, wearing trainers every day is an equally unacceptable fashion decision. Save your kicks for the gym or a walk in the park and choose some nice leather loafers or dress shoes for daily wear instead.
Wearing A Beanie Hat In Warm Weather… Why?
Maybe wearing beanie hats is part of your hipster style and that’s fine. But please skip the hat during summers. It’s like seeing a girl wearing UGG boots in May; all we can think of is the sweat building up inside her fur-lined shoes and your woolen-covered hair.
If you like a hat (we do too!), try a nice straw trilby, cotton fedora, or even a fashion cap.
Ill-Fitting Trousers & Jeans
You might think we don’t notice that you’ve simply buttoned your jeans underneath that beer gut or that your dress trousers are a couple of inches too long, but we do. It makes you look sloppy, and nobody likes sloppy.
This is the hardest one on our list to fix but with a little care and attention, you can be wearing tailored and form-flattering trousers and jeans in a flash. First of all, brave the fitting room. Don’t just pick your usual size off the rack and think they’ll do. Make the effort to queue up with the size you’ve probably been buying since you were 18, a size up and also a size down.
They should be snug against your hips but not uncomfortable, for the perfect fit. Secondly, if you can’t get the correct length, nip into your local tailor and get him to take up the hem. The extra few bucks and effort are worth it.

Screaming Designer Labels
Designer labels are great and we’re a big fan of quality clothes. However, we don’t necessarily need to know which labels you’re wearing on every piece of clothing.
A tee shirt with the designer’s name emblazoned across the front, a cap with another brand’s logo, designer kicks that are monogrammed are all too much in one outfit.
Opt for your favourite designer pieces that don’t have the brand name plastered all over them.

Long Socks & Shorts. Got A Mirror?
Boys, please, if you’re going to wear shorts, be sure to wear the right socks. Folding your white socks over to make them shorter or simply scrunching them down will not do.
You need proper sport ankle socks so you can only see the very top of the sock, or preferably no sock at all. You might be tempted to skip the socks in order to avoid confusion, but don’t do that either. It’s a recipe for smelly shoes and smelly feet.
White socks are best but if you’ve got a funky pair with a quirky print, they will serve as a nice statement piece too; just no black socks with casuals unless they’re invisible footies, please.
