The “Medge” Makes An Unfortunate Return

Last summer, we told you about the male wedge, a.k.a. the “medge.” We’re happy we didn’t see any average men wearing these shoes, but then we came across this year’s version from Acne. We’ve decided these are ten times worse than the original medge we spotted at the Fendi fashion show nearly a year ago.

Gross Guy Trend: Bragging About Reviving A Heinous Fashion Craze

Dear Justin Timberlake,

I love you. You know that. I’ve been to three of your live shows and screamed like a tween who just got her period. But seriously. Do not take credit for that hateful trucker hat trend a few years ago. Let Ashton take the blame. You’re better than that.

Gross Guy Trend: The Medge

At the men’s fashion shows in Milan, an interesting new shoe style for men appeared: the male wedge, aka the “medge.” We hope Tom Cruise is the only one who adopts this style. (Sidenote: When you do a search for “male wedge,” Google says, “Did you mean: male wedgie“. Ha.) [The Times, U.K.]…

Gross Guy Trend: Perms

A man’s hair says so much about him — especially if he’s bold enough to be bald. But since every lady loves to run their hands through Greek god-like ringlets (right?), some men in New York set out to see if a perm would have the same power. The gentlemen were simply looking to spice…

Gross Guy Trend: Big, Padded Booties

At first when I saw this line of padded butt boxers for men, I was convinced it was one of those underwear sites for gay men that also make weird contraptions that cradle the balls. After all, every gay man I know has been a little more interested in having a pert bum for, you…

Gross Guy Trend: Athletes With Horrific Facial Hair

There is a thin line between good facial hair and bad facial hair. But extremely horrible, offensive, make-you-wanna-wretch facial hair is really easy to recognize. Like Scott Spiezio who plays for the St. Louis Cardinals. Nice devil goatee, dude. AOL Sports has compiled many, many more terrible examples. I weep for the razors going unused.

Gross Guy Trend: Embarassing Fake Hair

Three Questions:
A) Have we learned nothing from George Clooney? Embrace the gray gentlemen!
B) Is his hair made of brown astroturf?
C) Or does it come out of a Aerosol can?

Gross Guy Trend: Offensive Facial Fur

Clearly, bad facial hair is a pet peeve of ours. It’s not that we’ve got anything against it in general — in fact, we love a swarthy man with an amazing beard — but if it’s not done right, facial hair can be totally wretch-worthy. Like the looks Seth Green and Elijah Wood are rocking!

Gross Guy Trend: Cargo Kilts

I have Scottish blood running through my arteries and veins, so the sight of a man in a kilt isn’t as horrific to me as it might be for others. That doesn’t mean I’m hoping men will start wearing them regularly, especially when they’re made from duck cloth instead of a family tartan.
