Clothes with elbow patches, such as those on Mr Bean's tweed blazer, were another bug bear of Brits, with 54 per cent voting it their most hated item.
This was followed by red trousers – popular with posh Made in Chelsea folk – and Ugg boots, despite them being a favourite among many celebs, from A-list to reality stars.
