    At my college I've certainly seen this brand being worn, mostly African American students... Very excessive with brand names. Think I've seen a guy, Ed Hardy hat, Ed Hardy Hoodie, Ed Hardy T-shirt, Gucci belt (three stripes with an excessive buckle), True Religion jeans all sagged, then some Gucci loafers. That dude probably spent more on that outfit than I did on my motorcycle.

    To what Tangerz is saying about the sagged pants... it just gives african americans such as myself a bad name and im so sick of it. The look is so dirty and stupid i don't understand why they think its cool.

    Yea actually im seeing alot more African Americans wearing aeropastale and Holister and even ambercrombie. It's nice to see less people wearing baggy pants, but they even sag skinny's. For some reason they think seeing your boxers makes you hard... I think it just makes you prison worthy

    I see Ed Hardy here and there in Greensboro, but it was never a huge movement. I can't even really associate it with a "type", but in most cases the common denominator seems to be cocaine, whether the person is a consumer or dealer.

    Ed Hardy and affliction are taking Omaha, NE by STORM. Just as I begun to hate it I moved here from Seattle, and a year later the trend caught on in the Midwest. I hate both of these brands with a passion. Affliction I hate a bit more than Ed Hardy though. It just looks way gayer.

    I will say though, a couple weeks ago I was at a bar with my girl and this dude was wearing Ed hardy jeans, silver loafers, and a white button up that had an eagle emblazoned on the back with the word "ROAR" underneath. Oh, and the best part, ROAR and the eagle were all in Rhinestones. I thought I was going to die laughing.

    our showroom at the dallas market center is close to the ed hardy, c.aud, and smet showroom and they are always busy yet at coterie, completely dead. funny thing is, i know a couple of their reps and they hate their stuff. it's garbage and completely tasteless but retailers with guido, redneck, ghetto (all the same, imo) have made plenty of money selling that crap.

    Are you trying to say that the entire enterprise is undergirded by cynicism? Shocker!

    OMG Roar has made it to Omaha? LOLZ, they have the front display at the beverly center macy's right now and its such a joke. All their ads are about how you can win some ferarri.

    All that stuff looks like every thing they sell on melrose east of fairfax in stores like TYPHOON or XPLOSION. Its gotten so bad that I cant even laugh anymore, i just feel bad for people wearing that stuff.
