Fashion for men is easy but they still make mistakes.

"Dressing well is a form of good manners," Tom Ford, the iconic designer—and the menswear world's best-dressed man—once said. If his point is true (it is), then a lot of guys are in serious need of an etiquette lesson.

There are some questionable outfit choices that men make. Are you guilty of any of these? Then keep reading to make sure you don't make the same mistakes. 

  1. Tight jean trousers

A man in tight jeans does not look the least bit good. It holds his butt too tightly.

  1. Trousers that show underwear or butt crack

Men, your butt crack (the opening to your butt) showing is unattractive.

Also, except you are in secondary school, there is no reason for anyone to see your underwear.

  1. Wearing leather slippers with everything

So slippers with everything, even jeans is not a good look. The only acceptable outfit leather slippers go with is native attires.

What should you wear with jeans? Loafers and sneakers, please.

  1. Wearing a kaftan and slides

There is no reason on earth to wear native with slides. Slides are for staying at home, beachwear or running errands.

  1. Pointy dusty shoes

Except you are a street evangelist, throw away those pointy black shoes with cranks. Buy more loafers and monk straps. This isn’t 2002.

  1. Ripped jeans

The only reason you should wear ripped jeans is that you are part of NURTW (National Union of Road Transport Workers)

  1. Oversized trouser length

Your trousers should be around your ankle, not longer or shorter.

  1. Untucking shirt when wearing work shoes

Your shoes determine if you can tuck or untuck your shirt. If the theme is corporate then stick with it, if it's a casual look do not wear work shoes but sneakers.

  1. Sandals and socks

You must have seen many of your male friends or relatives wear sandals with socks. This outfit looks silly, but most men do not know. They might believe that this type of dressing is a fashion statement. When you dress like this, it makes you appear like an average Joe. For those who feel cold with sandals, they can make use of loafers or sneakers instead. However, if you want to wear sandals, do not wear socks.

  1. Wrinkled Clothing

No matter the situation you find yourself, stay away from wrinkled clothing. Common mistake men make us wear wrinkled clothes.

You should iron your shirt when you want to go out. No matter how cool wrinkled clothing might look, they should not be used in public.
