    Male or female, unisex, whatever. Whether it's overpriced, shittily constructed, obnoxiously marketed, or worn by a caste of society you would rather send into the sun. Tell me what name in the fashion industry makes your blood boil and seethe with hatred.

    For me: Juicy Couture.

    My god, who decided it was cool for girls to look like a spoiled piece of shit who never wears anything but fuzzy pajamas? The jewelry line is tacky as hell, consisting of gold-plated necklaces with stupid things hanging from the chain like presents, little dogs, tiaras, etc. And the fucking jump suits... if I ever see a girl my own age wearing a juicy jump suit, hot or not, I immediately walk in the other direction and choose not to converge my life with hers. It's not really worth my time.

    Fortunately this hype isn't as bad as it used to be four years ago. I remember when I first started university as a freshman and all of the herd was wearing this garbage.

    I don't feel so bad about Ed Hardy anymore simply because everyone has realized it is the epitome of trash, thus I don't have to avert my eyes as much.

    I can't believe there are people who hate something as superficial as clothing enough that it ruins their day.

    I don't hate brands as much as I do styles. I never could get with super-tight, or super-baggy jeans on guys or the shirts with distressed dragons, sculls and wings and crap. What's with all that?

    Not gonna say that it ruins my day, butttt this is a place called "styleforum", where superficial and clothing shouldn't be in the same sentence.

    i must agree....girls in juicy piss me off. here in nashville, a juicy tracksuit, uggs, and LV bag with prada shades so big they look like welding goggles is the style for the wimmins. And their boyfriends are always in true religions, and a button up with skulls, crosses, dragons, gnomes, wizardry, and sparkles...topped off with pointy toed boots.


    ah nashville...why hast thou forsaken me?

    What about Express?? More and more I'm starting to hate this place. I will admit though, in high school, it was the place to GO!

    It's pretty hard to get exercised about any brand of clothing that isn't obviously cheap and terrible, like True Religion or Juicy or whatever. And there really isn't any point in agreeing that yes, Affliction shirts are really ugly. It's really hard to hate that shit with a passion too, because it's just obviously terrible. The closest I could get might be those brands that have popped up and are trying to get some of the hype of raw selvage denim and sell it to the True Religion crowd, but without any actual quality. I guess I'd have to say PRPS just because they have some of the ugliest washes I've ever seen on jeans. And Chip & Pepper, which are more like Ed Hardy/True Religion than not, but manage to pop out to me anyway for being giant obnoxious douchebags on a personal level.

    I don't know if for me it'd be as much picking out a specific brand as opposed to people who will only go head-to-toe in a single one. Off the top of my head, my wife was looking at a blog the other day about some woman who worships Anthropology. I have mixed feelings on the brand itself (besides the fact that everything in the store looks like it was made by poor grandmothers). It can be a decent look, but most of the women I see sporting that sort of chic are of the obese-sort with no sense of shape or color. I mean, obnoxious colored leggings going into saddle-shoe/ankle-boot combos, skirts that poof out like you're at a freaking quinceañera, followed up by the typical crap cardigan. Note - insert cheap-looking fake flowers somewhere, either in the hair or attached to the cardigan itself. I'm actually going to find this blog and post it here, just to demonstrate. Here's a similar one. Effortless Anthropologie These fuggly women, spending hours in fitting rooms, uploading every photo to the web to highlight their "favorite brand(!!!! *giggle*). Makes me want to break something. Admittedly, still probably better than that standard white-trashy uni-color pajama jumpsuit with Uggs, but this has been bothering me for a while, and I'm so glad to finally have a thread to vent.

    I like Anthropologie. A lot. The owner of this blog just styles it horribly.

    ^^ Ah yes - don't get me wrong. There are some decent things coming out of it, and can be pretty good-looking on the right type of girl. More often than not though, I see it resulting in combinations like the link above. I think I could just as easily transfer hate onto those male Jcrew-whores... (*ahem - cue Robert) AHA! - found the original blog I intended: Anthroholic: One Girl's Love Affair Example of good: [​IMG] Example of not: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I find Hollister and American Eagle very annoying. I hate clothes with large branding, and sports numbers like a henley with a big jersey print #76
