Spain may have narrowly won the 2010 World Cup over the Netherlands 1-0  but Dutch coach Bert van Marwijk  handily outscored the Spanish coach Vicente del Bosqueon (pictured bellow, bottom) on style.

MISTAKES MEN MAKE: The experts weigh in on the worst blunders in men’s fashion

In the  most recent issue of Menswear magazine, designers were asked to comment on the most irksome mistakes guys make when getting dressed. Here are a few of the most useful :

“A really pressed, oversize oxford shirt, pressed pleated chinos, bad dress shoes–the invisible corporate potato.”
Michael Bastian

“Jackets are the backbone of men’s wear, so when you buy one, make sure it fits properly. Just because it is a piece of tailoring doesn’t mean it is a magic wand. A badly fitting jacket– no matter how expensive– will look awkward.”
Giorgio Armani

“Buying a suit–and thinking it’s a tracksuit! A suit is to be tailored, sharp and smart, not big enough to do cartwheels in.”
Dan and  Dean Katen, DSQUARED

“Square-toed shoes. They are an outdated style that can make any man look bad.”
John Varvatos

“Square-toed shoes.”
“With boot cut jeans.”
Marcus Wainwright and David Neville, respectively
Rag and Bone

“Dressing to show what one has rather than who one is.”
Kris Van Assche, Dior Homme

“Men traveling with matching designer luggage–that just ain’t right.”
Victor & Rolf
