Walk into any mall, cinema, restaurant or a club in the country and you are bound to find atleast a dozen men who could really do with a fashion stylist. I often hear men complaining about how women take ages to shop for the right pair of jeans or top. All I’d like to say to these men is there is a big reason for that and perhaps if you took some time as well to buy the right kind of clothes, women would be hovering all around you like bees atop a flower. Presenting below are my six style disasters that men in UAE need to avoid and run miles away from ASAP!
1) Low waist pants
Guys, if you think showing your ugly boxer shorts or butt crack will bring the ladies to your yard, you really need to have your head examined. The only people getting attracted to your lower-than-the-lowest-your-pants-can-fall attire are the fashion police.
Ermmm confused whether picking or dropping them?
2) Really Tight Pants
Owners of lower-than-lowest pants are closely followed by the wearers of fat bulging tight pants (and dont even get me started on tight leather pants). Its sad how so many decent looking chaps fall into the trap and end up buying/wearing pants two sizes (if not more) smaller than actual. Perhaps consider investing in a long mirror at home? If you can afford buying clothes from expensive places, do take some time and check whether they actually fit you!
Umm hello Mr Tight Leather Brands.
3) Deep Cleavage Barring V-Necks
These only look good on a handful of men who possess a reasonably good body and somewhat less chest hair (a completely waxed chest is obviously more preferable, but that’s another story). V-necks are not meant for everyone and should you want to wear them, try and layer it with a jacket or vest, coz on its own its a bit off-putting to look at. Especially when worn by men with zero-personality. Ill-fitted V-neck make you look less macho and more gayish. Only difference is gay men actually dress up much nicer and won’t ever wear crap things like weirdly tapering v-necks.
Even Ed Westwick isn’t allowed this!
4) TIGHTLY FITTED Deep V-Necks
What can be worse than a v-neck? A tightly fitted v-neck. And god help my eyes when they spot one in the neon colors that are all rage this season.
No, don’t even try this.
5) Really Really tight shirts
I’ve often been in meetings and at events where my mind got distracted coz of men in the room with shirts so tight that it made me uncomfortable to even look at them. So unless you have a physique like Beckham or Tatum, please please get a tailor to fix you up with something that sits well on your shoulders and doesn’t make you look like an iron pumped dumbbell.
If he can’t then you surely don’t stand a chance!
6) Pointy Shoes
Unless you are maharajah of crocodile-land or possess a reasonably good pair, get rid of those extremely pointed leathery shoes ASAP (much faster if they have flowery designs all over them). Especially short/round men, please do yourself a favor and leave them at home. The overall effect is more of a pointy stoat than a round stoat (a round stoat is more preferable).
Drop a line if you’d like to see any disasters leave our streets!
