5 Fall Fashion Trends Men Hate

Sure, we follow all the latest runway collections and love adding a few key trendsetting pieces to our wardrobe with each new season. But what do men think of some of the more interesting looks to come down the catwalk? Marie Claire asked guys what they love, hate, and just don't get about this fall's major fashion moments.


"I never understood this. Don't women understand we are attracted to women? We don't want them to dress like us. But then again, my girlfriend says she doesn't dress for me and that she dresses for other women. But still."
-Clinton, 31, mortgage broker

"Super-high pants will never be appreciated by a straight man."
-Aaron, 25, graduate student

Bold Blue

"Blue is a good color. Guys understand blue."
-Henry, 29, drummer

"This is just too much of one color. It's like the Canadian tuxedo but instead of denim its just blue. I thought you weren't supposed to be too matchy-matchy in fashion."
-Tim, 34, software engineer

Gorilla Sleeves

"I think they are going for abominable-snowman-eats-a-blue-snowcone with this one."
-Adam, 30, healthcare IT specialist

"That looks a lot just like John Goodman's character from Monsters, Inc. Was that the inspiration?"
Laurence, 30, communications director


"I feel like every picture of my grandmother, she is in that color. It feels very dated to me and is probably really hard to pull off. It's one of those colors that looks bad on most people because it blends in with their skin tone."
-Stephen, 25, teacher

"I think she was in Zone A during Hurricane Irene."
-Adam, 30, healthcare IT specialist

Leather Bondage

"So, I guess Morpheus is a trend-setting designer now. What happens in The Matrix should always stay in The Matrix."
-Aaron, 25, graduate student

"I would never approach a girl wearing something like this. I'm already afraid of her. It's just too much. She needs to soften up that jacket and unzip it a little."
-Tim, 34, software engineer
