"Each item on this list has no place in an adult male's wardrobe," she wrote. "Some of these pieces have simply outstayed their welcome, others have been and always will be fashion abominations. You probably just didn't know it when you purchased them."

Your mileage may vary on some of these pieces. But should you have any questions about whether something should go, run it by your significant other. If they start mentioning Goodwill or The Salvation Army, take the hint.
