NBC sitcom F.R.I.E.N.D.S. has given us some of the most memorable icons in pop culture. We bring to you some ridiculous fashion faux pas committed by the guys on the show, and also some classic things they got right. Partly tongue-in-cheek. Mostly an urgent plea from all women to all men in the world.
1. Joey’s Man Bag
We know Joey loved it, but everything that is seen on the “men in the Spring Catalog” is not the gospel truth. Any leather satchel that rides up your side is Not. An. Option.
2. Ross’ Leather Pants
Speaking of leather, someone was in a really bad mood when these pants were conceived. Leather pants belong with Britney Spears and should stay there.
3. Chandler’s Eighties hair
This was inspired by British band A Flock Of Seagulls and was a rage in the 80’s. We’ll never know why. But unless you are Wolverine, please don’t even think of attempting this.
4. Joey’s 19-year old look
Joey channelled the early 2000’s to look like a 19-year-old with a beanie, a loose vest over a tee and that godforsaken peeping, nay, gawking underwear with low rise pants. You did it in your Slim Shady phase maybe. We don’t judge. Just try your best to not let it happen again.
5. Joey’s Porsche look
Wearing everything with a logo on it does not give you a share in the company. Overdoing brands is a very real thing and not classy at all. So next time you want to put on your Adidas T-shirt with Reebok sweatpants and Ray-Ban aviators with Converse sneakers all at once, don’t.
(Neat) facial hair is big these days and no one rocked it better than Dr Richard Burke. But remember, cultivating a moustache alone does not make you debonair. With great facial hair comes great responsibility.
Not happening Chandler, not happening.
Chandler was the pioneer of sweater vests but the loose ones look very 90’s. Fitted vests, either buttoned-down or left open, look suave on everyone, even if you aren’t Tom Hiddleston.
3. Ross’ Hair
One man whose hair (even the curly mess from the Prom Video) was always on point is Ross Geller. Agreed, he needed too much product, but whether close cropped, swept back or spiked up, his hair never went out of style.
