10 fashion items that your bloke (not so) secretly hates

We’re guessing that many of you will have been down at the pub when a debate kicks off about why women dress a certain way, whether it’s always to please men, please themselves or show off in front of their mates (or secret answer d. all of the above)

Well we’re not psychologists, so can’t give you a definitive answer, but whether guys play a role in how women dress or not, it’s pretty clear some sartorial choices that are really popular among womenkind really REALLY irritate some men.

We conducted a study (OK, so we asked our Facebook and Twitter mates) into which style choices women make that really get to blokes and as you’d expect there’s some of the usual suspects, some surprise appearances and some that were just far too explicit to include.

Men, prepare to get agitated and angry, women, do whatever you like and never feel like you have to throw away those old UGGs that smell like wet dogs just to please a guy…

Thanks to everyone who got back to us, we’ve included some of your quotes throughout the gallery, but do let us know in the comments below if there are any we’ve missed out.

Oh come on, you're not surprised they've topped the list are you? UGGs are hated by both genders, but you'll more often than not find women saying "oh but it's comfy". Hell even I've used that one before because they really do feel like your feet are strapped to the most squishiest of close, despite looking and smelling like dead dogs. However, if we started applying the "oh but it's comfy" argument to everyday life we'd find people walking around snuggled up in quilts with pillows strapped to their heads, but we don't do that because it's ridiculous. And the same can be said for UGGs. But, one of our Twitter friends said, "every man I know hates uggs. But they are comfy and warm, so screw men", which is kind of the moral of this story guys, yes women look stupid in things, yes not all of the things they look stupid in are comfy or practical, but we hate to break it to you, most of the time they couldn't care less…

What’s your opinion on Ugg boots for men? Everytime I’ve seen a man sporting Uggs I’ve done a double take and then tittered to myself. I’m not a fan of Uggs for women, let alone Uggs for men. Ronnie Wood and Brad Pitt are some of the many male slebs pictured in Uggs and now apparently the US company is aiming their furry boot firmly in the direction of men.
An anonymous fashion editor was reported to have said: “They are a monstrosity. They are like glorified slippers. You may as well shuffle down the street in your pyjamas and a pair of incontinence pants.”

What do you think about men in Uggs? Take our poll after the jump or leave a comment on our Facebook Blog Network page!
