    Any brand the advertises overtly on their merchandise. Louis Vuitton, Abercrombie and Fitch, Hollister, AE, Aeropostale, GUESS, Gucci...Just to name a few.

    I think the new annoying brands are the tweeny-popular brands, such as:Band of Outsiders, Engineered Garments, and the old ones like: Filson, Barbour and Alden.
    Makes me cringe every time one of the urban mass-exclusivity seekers piss vinegar about these brands.

    Kenneth Cole for claiming that their crap is actually high quality and for making me have to look at rectangular shoes every day.

    Anything I can find at Macy's.... And I'm not even talking $$$, just style.

    Can't beat those thin merino wool layering sweaters for $15, though. Made in Italy, made in China: I've owned them all. NO DIFFERENCE!

    Also those stripey pima cotfon socks that look good w/ wing tips. Club Room, $4 for three pair -- vs. $50 for Paul Smith or some shit. No difference at all.

    Also those brown Ralph Lauren Polo chinos. Those are pretty OK.

    Just sayin'.

    I'm wondering if there has been a brand that has not been mentioned.

    It appears that certain brands make spam robots go awry...

    I don't find any particular brand annoying, the only one that comes close is probably FCUK.

    They have at least two flagship stores here in Sydney that I know of. From what I've seen, the brand is quite popular amongst Chinese (and perhaps other Asians and Caucasians as well) in their 20's and early 30's, with most of whom pronoucing the word as its more offensive anagram.

    somebody up there listed Filson and Barbour, WTF ??? what is so annoying about them... may be the fact that some "hipsters" use them. I don't think they are even that popular... at least not even in the same league (as far as ubiquitous noveau rich) as the likes of Gucci, Prada, LV, Dolce & Gabana, Fendi, Cavalli, etc. :plain:
    oh and how could I forget ED HARDY and BILLIONAIRES COUTURE, taking about shit... :brick:

    I'm actually surprised/impressed to not see a slew of SW&D brands being tossed on the pyre
