Bad Fashion #2

We're still counting down bad fashions...
Number #5 White Socks with Black Shoes
Number #4 The Mobile Phone on Belt
Number #3 The Tucked in Shirt
but now to todays fashion faux pas... drum roll please


in shirt form

in polo form

Like the others this fashion looks incredibly bad. The first picture shows a shirt with the top button. This is an understandable mistake. The shirt is a formal item of clothing however without the tie the whole look is let down.

The second picture shows the polo top button done up. This is far worse crime as the polo is by it's nature a less formal article of clothing. In other words it lends itself naturally to having a open collar. To button up the top button is as bad as wearing a tux to play footy in.

Check this next picture out (shamelessly stolen from here)

I feel sorry for children who have this fashion thrust upon them by naive parents who then wonder why their children are bashed for being nerdy. I've also noticed this impressed on many home schooled children.

In the picture above the kid on the right is clearly more likely to get bashed as his top button is done up. The kid on the left wont*. It's that straight forward.

If the shirt doesn't have a tie then the top button should always be undone.

*Actually he probably will for having such a dumbass belt.

Mike, is that you modelling the TBDU look? You? look very smart.
I see far more guys wearing polo shirts with the top button done up, it seems to be more fashionable, although I like the look equally on ordinary shirts.
I do it and I never get bullied.

It was my website that the pic was stolen from and I am the kid on the right. The pic was from 1966 and believe it or not I was considered quite cool and popular.Nobody ever ever bashed me and I never bashed anyone either. I was a sports star in all sports and lots of girl friends. So you can't judge by fashion or anything else. God bless.............

Hey Martin thanks for your comment and dropping by.

In my experience growing up in the 80s one would have been bashed for looking like that.
