Fashion faux pas that make men 'undateable'

High-waisted dad jeans, 'mandannas,' tube socks and Ed Hardy gear are just a few of the turn-offs for women, according to the authors of a forthcoming book.

Unhappily unattached men folk of America, that soul patch beneath your lower lip may be discouraging a potential soul mate from sticking around through the salad course of your first date. And the stakes are as high as the waist on those dad jeans.

That's right; while we've been taught not to judge a book by its cover, experts say that when it comes to calibrating long-term compatibility, the reality is that what men wear is the first — and often most crucial — criteria that women use to judge.

"Undateable: 311 Things Guys Do That Guarantee They Won't Be Dating or Having Sex" (by Ellen Rakieten and Anne Coyle, due in stores next month), a kind of fascinating field manual of future-foreclosing fashion faux pas that ranks infractions such as high-waisted dad jeans (we're looking at you, POTUS), novelty belt buckles, "mandannas" and Ed Hardy gear, on a scale from "Red Flag" (tube socks) to "Kiss of Death" (Speedos).
