OP- yeah... Ed Hardy is lame.

Hell yes! Glad another forum member appreciates Bad Brains as much as i do!

it is horrible IMO. Everything about the line is gaudy, loud and terribly overdone. But to each his own.

 "To each his own" was my philosophy too, until I learned a long-sleeve t-shirt cost $176. At that point, it became offensive.

 Not to beat a dead horse...



 Even forgetting for the time being the puerile graphics or garish color combinations, there's never any sense of design or composition. The Ed Hardy script logo is always much too large- but I suppose if it were any smaller, they wouldn't be able to clobber the innocent spectators of this artistic travesty with the EH branding

 I wish I could say with other poeople that this is "bland", but to me it's obnoxious. Add to the fact that this particular shirt costs $154, and it becomes cynical and exploitative and disgusting.

 At least there's something not quite so repulsive on this site:



 Hey babe, we're gonna have to get you out of that!

You can thank hip hop culture for what the youth of not only america but the world wear. How hot was "wu-wear" back in the 90's? Living in so cal at the time the brand was hard to find and any person with a wu wear sweater was the shit.

Roca wear, sean john, slim shady clothing were all top clothing brands worldwide, during the past 10 years every high profile rapper has his own clothing line. Snoop's line is still banking profits, g unit wear is killing it at the stores. Rappers even have their own shoes.

Then clothing labels started paying rappers to wear their stuff. Lil Wayne, the clipse and kanye all got paid thousands by bape to wear their stuff. The ed hardy brand was doing pretty good in sales but just when the ed hardy trend started dieing in so cal they payed Lil Wayne and j.d. To wear the clothes in a music video and on tour and that's when you started seeing we hardy on urban kids. Even in africa youth can be seen with ed hardy hats on.

In a year, this may be like the Von Dutch hats that people find in their closet and wonder why they ever wore them... tagutcow, I couldn't place exactly why I didn't like them but you pointed it out. The designs are just really simple; you could probably find them airbrushed on a shirt at Myrtle Beach. If you remove the logo, you have yet another garish, tacky shirt sold at flea markets. I think we don't like these because we weren't the ones to come up with the idea of overpriced branding...

Thanks!.... Those are not my opinions... but another member on this forum...has said time and time again...the rockstar look should be worn by black people...because blacks and latinos were not rockstars... but as you stated and as i have told him..... black people where some of the first rockstars!

The designs used aren't really that bad, it's just renditions of old tattoo art; it's just the shirts are severely overpriced and they are poorly laid out (bad proportions, no creativity...). If I wanted that kind of shirt, I also would probably stick to something along the lines of Sailor Jerry.

I dont know whats worse ED Hardy or this new Christian Audiger (sp) line. Christian the former Head Designer for Von Dutch and partner in Ed Hardy took it upon himself to branch off and start another similar line. Think cracked out Ed Hardy with more glam.

I've seen the Christian Audigier hoodies. Apparently they're very big amongst the teens for their eye-popping design and status (each going for ~300). Ed Hardy, CA, and Affliction are banned from clubs in Vancouver for being gang-related, I think.

Just googled him.... Yeah his designs are horrible. I think he may actually be worse than Affliction. I think his basic idea for shirt making is "How much random shit can I put on one shirt this time?" The writing is hard to read, his name is the center piece of all the items, and some of his shirts are $175! His label epitomizes everything wrong with clothing design.

I noticed Ed Hardy isnt working at Tattoo City SF anymore....i wonder if the $$ from licensing his name out is keeping him comfortable

I got to meet and talk with Ed Hardy about 15 years ago at a tattoo convention and he is super cool fellow, for being such a legend.

It's amazing how the bozo behind Von Dutch and Ed Hardy managed to take 2 iconic names in the hot rod/tattoo subculture and turn them into complete garbage. I wish someone would interview Ed about his thoughts on the clothing line that's bearing his name

I use to own an Ed Hardy hat then when the crack dealers started to wear them I "lost" mine.
