Today is a special day here on Sexy Style for Joe,
We’re having our first annual Hall Of Shame awards!
The goal of Good Looking Clothes Hall Of Shame Awards is to remember, acknowledge and celebrate the worst of the worst that this year’s men’s fashion trends had to offer.
The ugly, the obnoxious, the boring, the passé, the dumb, and the painfully common – we have it all this year!
We’ll be giving away five awards in five different categories:
- “What Were You Thinking?!”
- “Glitch In The Matrix”
- “Aww… Such A Sweet Guy”
- “Bro, Hold My Beer”
- “Lost In Time”
To make sure that we keep our prestigious awards transparent, let me quickly explain the process how we will be determining the winner of each category:
Step One. Selecting The Nominees – each category has four potential nominees that have been hand selected by a not-very-objective and kind-of-an-asshole guy, who’s running this site (me!). For more than three years now, I’ve been helping guys around the world improve their style and get sexy. This puts me in an interesting position, where on a daily basis I can observe, think and test what works and what doesn’t when it comes to image and looking attractive. In turn, I’m confident that all the candidates are at the very least suboptimal choices and at the very worst, straight-up attractiveness killers.
Step Two. Picking The Winner – to keep my own biases aside, the four nominees were then presented to our secret and elite SSfJ Facebook group and voted on by the sexy bastards, who hang out there.
With the rules explained, let’s start the show!
The “What Were You Thinking?!” award is given to the piece of clothing or design choice that makes you wonder, how drunk, high and over-caffeinated (probably all three) the person had to be when designing that piece of clothing.
Even worse, you have to wonder what was going through the mind of the person in charge, who then had to look at the design and instead of spewing his (or hers) mocha and bursting into laughter, said something along the lines “Yeah, screw it, let’s do it” (I mean really, how much can hate your job?)
But even that’s not the worst. The worst is that some poor bastard then looked at that piece of clothing and paid his hard-earn money to get it…
Now that makes you wonder, What Were You Thinking?!
Let’s meet the nominees:
Congratulations POLO SHIRT WITH PRINTED SLEEVES!
It looks like the absurdity of trying to make a polo shirt cool just cannot be beaten.
- If you’re adamant about making a polo shirt work without killing your sex appeal in the process and have a solid physique required, consider a plain polo shirt in skinny muscle fit. Those can actually work quite well.
- If you’re looking for something classier to wear during hot days, linen buttoned shirts (not short-sleeved!) is the way to go.
- If you want something casual: V-neck/Scoop neck tees are the way to go and you can add edginess/”badassery” with other items in your outfit.
