You Are What You Wear: Viewers mock 'horrible' outfit in Rylan Clark-Neal's new BBC show

Some thought the shoes were the "worst" ever

BBC viewers were sorely divided over one of the final results in Rylan Clark-Neal's new show, You Are What You Wear.

The programme, which got underway on BBC One last night (Thursday, June 11), puts presenter Rylan at the head of a team of five stylists as they help people reinvent their wardrobes.

Viewers were introduced to 29-year-old Manny, a passionate powerlifter looking to spruce up his style.

The team dressed him in several casual outfits, including one with a stylish bomber jacket and muscle-fit T-shirt that showed off his incredible physique.

Most viewers at home loved the You Are What You Wear team's more casual outfits, though they called the last one "horrible".

It featured a long, vertical-striped blazer over a T-shirt and skinny jeans with a pair of blue suede loafers and no socks.

Viewers thought the shoes were particularly bad, with some calling them the "worst" they had ever seen.

Another called the blazer "shapeless", adding: "Those loafers are the worst things I've ever seen. #YouAreWhatYouWear."

A third said: "That blazer is horrible #YouAreWhatYouWear."

Someone else wrote: "#YouAreWhatYouWear no man should ever wear suede loafers. Also, don't get me started about men wearing shoes without socks. Just no."

That blazer is horrible.

A fifth wrote: "That's one good thing about lockdown. Not going out at the weekend and seeing sockless lads in skinny jeans that stop above the ankle along with loafers. Bad on every level. #YouAreWhatYouWear."

"#YouAreWhatYouWear is SO SO SO outdated," another tweeted. "Gives no real insight or knowledge (I mean, we don't even know where the clothes are from!) and actually, a lot of these outfits are pretty rubbish."

A 'cracking' job

However, not all viewers felt that way about the programme, or Manny's final outfit.

"Wow she has dressed Manny so well!" observed one.
