too tight jeans?  like dior homme jeans?  are those really uncool? 

some of your suggestions were really good, but many reflect your personal preferences.  be more open about fashion and style.  if it looks good: wear it.

cool format.

Yes, I definitely agree. Preference should always take precedence over trendy/stylish/cool. BUT, at the same time, you need to know what works on your own body type. Like, too-tight jeans on Scott Weiland, very cool, too-tight jeans on my old boss, WAY too much information!

Great article erik!  Everybody knows that geeks have poor fashion sense, perhaps if they see the connection to an ugly web page, they'll realize the importance of looking SOOOOOOO GOOOD!

I strongly agree with a lot of what you wrote.  The tapered and/or pleated look is definitely a no no.  And the XXL on skinny guys, absolutely wrong.  The positioning of the waistline is also a good one.  It drives me mad when guys wear their pants so low (just below their butt cheeks) it makes them walk funny.  Anything that makes you look awkward or uncomfortable is a NO!!

But here's where I'm not feeling 'ya: the sandals.  Yes, I know what you're picturing.  The computer geek in sky-blue tapered jeans with the teva-like sandal (even with socks sometimes!).  Bad look.  Agreed.  However, I don't think sandals are completely wrong.  We all love to have our feet breath in the hot summer months and I don't think men should be banned from this.  They just need to take care of their toes and pick the right kind of sandal.  I have no problem with men in a casual environment wearing some nice flip-flops.  It's not high-fashion, but at the same time I wouldn't say it's a fasion no-no.

Yeah, you make some good points there about the sandals. A lot of guys don't take care of their toes though. So I can put a caveat in there: if you take care of your feet (and your sandals don't smell), they're ok. But I'm staying strong against thong sandals, that would just be weird.
