Back in the day, a female friend was lamenting about her inability to land a suitable suitor. She went on to say the type of shoes a man wear tells you a lot about him. Same goes for his watch.

My first thought: Well, that explains her inability to find a fella.

My second thought: I'm wearing ratty sneakers and the same watch from high school.

Last night, I got an email from GQ. Their weekly newsletter. The same ones thousands of folks receive. The subject line: "The Rielle Hunter video and interview; the 19 worst fashion mistakes a guy can make; our favorite flame-haired knockouts."

Lengthy, sure. But enticing. Not so much for Rielle Hunter. Rather, let's see how many of those 19 fashion mistakes I have made and continue to make. With respect to GQ's intellectual property (and copyright issues), I won't repeat the entire list here. Instead, I'll list all of the ones I'm guilty of, then link to the entire story below so you can turn the mirror on yourself.

Here goes:

PRESENT

10) Sports Jerseys - On behalf of all men everywhere, I must take issue with this being on their list. Not a fashion mistake, in my opinion, but it's on their list, so we'll include it even if we find it to be morally questionable.

PAST

2) Guylights - Yeah, I did that a few times in 12 years ago.

12) Overly cologned - It was 1990. It was Drakkar. It was a bad time.

16) Sideways baseball hat: A.K.A "the Hat Tilt" - I'm not going to say there was a time when I used to wear my hat like that when I was hanging out with friends or chillin' at the beach, but there was a time when I used to wear my hat like that when I was hanging out with friends or chillin' at the beach

Wow, only 4 out of 19. That's not as bad as I thought. And I was honest. Your turn!
