No, no, I’m not talking about our bizarre sexual practices, I’m talking about something superficial for once. Clothes: yes, that’s right. People have been sharing this link to horrible 70s clothes and I have been having flashbacks. So where do draw the line? What’s the one item of clothing that you cannot take in a potential date?

• Eye-scorching shirt/blouse

• Cheap suit

• Tacky trousers

• Novelty socks

• Hideous accessories

• Nitwit knitwear

• Colours not found in Nature

    The officer committed fraud but drew the line at blackmail. It all depends on your concept of fiction and where you draw the line between fact and fiction.

    Jeans where the pockets hit right about at the back of the knees.

      Oooh, yes. Form should follow function. If clothing isn’t usable as clothing, what’s the point?

    I draw the line at both fabric content and colour…

    Seriously, I dislike the 70s because of the obsession with fabrics that both felt and looked terribly uncomfortable. I don’t have a particular problem with overdone as a style (I like gothic, for example), but the overwhelming colour combinations in conjunction with fabrics that make skin itch are terrible.

    i.e. Clothing from the 70s makes both my skin and my eyeballs crawl.

      The colors were so so horrible! And I refuse to wear all those synthetics now. Cotton, silk and linen mostly.
