Bono's Biggest Off-Stage Fashion Misfires

Anyone have any pics?

This is meant to be fun and not inflammatory!

The only one I can think of is that Purple get up with the gold tie in the Xmas thread...or maybe the Street Mission video and some of the other pre-Boy stuff...

I like a lot of his many styles ;]

I love his style most the time! I honestly don't think he has many fashion misfires. But yeah this wasn't his best look.



(I actually really liked when he wore the gold tie with the denim though, that was pretty cool.

I'm going to go ahead and say I think Edge owns the plaid. Sorry Bono!

Looks like a fun thread

Bono's excrutiating fashion mistakes are part of the reason why I love this man, though some of it is really hard to swallow

Anytime he wears a tshirt under a button down, it is a big misfire for me.

Or anytime he wears mandals.....fashion fail.

Personally, I like the mandals. They look comfy and you don't see Bono's toes every day

I think the mandals are perfect for summer relaxation. I wear shoes like that for the summer as well. They are also comfortable and good if you have back problems. I have never quite understood why people don't like the mandals.

Flip Flops are much much worse. God, I hate those things.

Those awful creepers on the other hand

But ok, seems like Bono (or Ali) got rid of those monstrosities some time ago anyway.

This is gonna be a big one. let's do it chronologically.


The entire Hobo JT era. Don't have many shots, but most people understand what I mean. I don't have the worst saved, thank feck. The Grammy's suit comes in mind.



Sexy shirt...


Nothing from Pop. Great era both clothes and outfit wise.

Now it's gonna go off. Elevation and especially VertiBono are pretty bad.

The mandals. Just.. NO.


Uhm. Interesting shirt, to say the least.


Sexy suit. Sexy shirt, very sexily untucked. Sexy tie.


White shirt untucked on jeans, with a white suit jacket?




The mandals, AGAIN.


Awful colours.


You can't see it here, but again the shirt untucked. And the colours are a horrific combination.


Wtf is up with that sweater? It looks like something your grandma gives you for christmas that you only wear when she's there.

Oh Bono, when will you ever learn. Jeans, a shirt untucked and a tie does NOT equal a suit.


The platform shoes. Just.. no. The socks are awesome though.


Pimp Bono? Stripes is really not his thing.


And last but not least. I can't bear to post the grey version of this. It's too traumatic. Granny Bono at her finest hour.

Love the purple on him. I don't agree that it's a bad combination of colors. I'm wearing colors like this all the time. I'm red haired and love to wear purple, simply because a lot of people tell me I can't. Fashion rules are there to be broken. Some of these examples are bad, but I don't have anything against the purple, it's a nice color. The mandals, as I said, are ok. I don't know what to wear instead in the summer. Sneakers only make sweaty feet

Purple is nice. He looks great with the purple shirt. But purple and brownish red? Heck no.

The mandals are definitely not ok. Normal sandals or flip flops would be okay. But these platform horrors? Yuck.

The only thing this sweater is missing is a huge reindeer or snowman.
