    That looks awful. Seems like something a guy in a really bad local rock band would wear.

    THAT's what it reminded me of! Thank you! I knew the velvet blazer thing reminded me of something cheesy but I couldn't put my finger on it.

    PS, I somewhat abashedly stand by my Diesels. They are not better than APC and Earnest Sewn. But they look pretty damn good on me. Maybe I'll find a camera later, this thread looks fun.

    Regarding the entire Affliction brand, if you're looking to associate yourself with hard rockers, you're definitely wearing the wrong brand. It's strictly reserved for fraternity bros.

    Don't know what kind of frats you've been at, but that's pretty inaccurate.
    Affliction is more of a brand for people who wish they could be MMA fighters. Regardless, pretty damn lame.

    98% of people at my school do not have so developed a sense of... trendiness.

    I nearly never comment negatively on anyone's outfit, but I feel compelled to do so here. Sorry dude, but this is awful. You know what this reminds me of? The dude who orders Cuervo with cola. No, no, buddy, with cola. i.e. a douche at a cheesy club ordering such an ass drink that not even the nearly-as-lame-nut-not-quite bartender can believe that he was just asked to make it.

    Affliction is good for wiping your ass with. No hate to the designers, they are obviously laughing all the way to the bank. Combine with the purple velvet blazer, light washed blue jeans with black boots, and you would fit in very well with the dudes outside of the Century Club. No, those guys are not cool. They are being turned away from a lame club.

    Sick. I'd change the shoes but other than that, you appear to have really good sense of style.

    I don't mean any harm but you whole outfit is horrible. I am from DC/MD and you officially have no excuse for dressing this way anymore. You must burn you clothing immediately and go shopping at Denim Bar, Barney's and Dior. Please post new pics after you finish shopping. And bye the way the last time I looked the only people who are still wearing affliction in our area are douchebags not rockers.

    affliction clothing promotes a lifestyle of action sports, rock music etc. and that is the image that i try to convey...therefore i find affliction clothing to be excellent! to each their own [​IMG]

    I found this to be very laugh-able. You know those "action sprots and rock music" guys get paid to wear that shit?

    Welcome to Marketing 1101:

    1. Put our clothes on people that get tons of airtime and the majority of the public idolize.
    2. Charge insane prices for a sub-par hanes T.
    3. Sheep follow.
    4. ???
    5. Profit!

    Also tired of people trying to "convey" things.. Everytime I hear the word convey used in a fashion sense it always makes me think of some poser that wishes he was something, but doesn't ever do anything to get it or actually get into the culture.

    When I see Affliction shirts, I often think that the person wearing them would just look better in an Iron Maiden shirt. Lots of people look better in Maiden shirts, actually. If you want to have graphics on your chest, it should be some skeleton freakin' delivering on some demon or something.
