    the Ed Hardy wearers don't really bother me. since we're busy stereotyping in this thread, i see them mostly worn by clueless, harmless looking people.

    it's the Affliction and Tapout wearers that are annoying - walking around the mall with puffed-out chests, staring at everyone like they are looking for an excuse to unleash their fierce MMA skills on you

    i like how the blog references a sort of superiority complex, and immediately after someone says "oh i didn't realize $140 for a hoody was considered expensive"

    it's irksome to see his name on the penultimate douchebag brand of clothes. :


    Which is the ultimate douchebag brand?

    I'm voting for OSIRIS:

    Many of my students wear these things, and they are an assault on my eyes.

    I actually liked ed hardy tees when it first came out. I respected Ed Hardy himself because what he has accomplished in the tattoo world and I myself was in to tattoos as well (and still am). However, after seeing it appearing everywhere and on douche bags, I have given up on Ed Hardy's clothing.

    The reason you gave up Ed Hardy is because you saw it everywhere, not because you threw up a little in your mouth every time you saw it?

    haha Well it wasnt that bad. I'm in to Japanese tattoos and this was the first time it was shown on t-shirts, but then the designs got too obnoxious. Rhinestones? Umm I had to pass.

    yeah a dragon penetrating the vagina of seven virgins while being stabbed with a heart-shaped sword is cool but when the dragon has rhinestones for eyes it's just fucking tacky

    Do not understand graphic tees. Even before I was into fashion, I didn't like them. When I was like eleven I asked my Mom to stop buying me shirts with stuff on them.

    This was when I regularly wore my parka to school only buttoning the top snap and with my arms out of the sleeves, so that it trailed behind me like a cloak.

    visual interest on an otherwise generally boring type of garment

    The existence of these brands and the existence of the inclination to wear them has been a source of great anxiety to me. However, I did see a busboy at a Mexican restaurant last night wearing a shirt with the Santa Muerte graphic on it and there seemed to be a tacit understanding that this image was diluted by the medium and harmless, so maybe I am getting overly involved in a non-issue.
