Being overly negative about other people’s dress sense is something that I’d happily leave to Trinny and Susannah but one particular menswear trend grates on me like nothing else.
They might seem innocuous but bootcut faded and or distressed jeans are a massive bugbear of mine. Richard Hammond, part of the Top Gear triumvirate of bad denim, is the perfect example of how not to wear jeans. The overlong shirt cuffs and ‘rugged’ leather only add to the effect and make him look out of date.
Is this a fashion crime or do you dig bootcut denim? Take our poll after the jump.
