    Over the top loud fashion: i.e. Moschino Cavalli (absolutely awful) Versace (only in small doses) Tom Ford (quite OTT) Dior Homme (for skinny kids, preferred Monsiur line)
    Dior Homme is anything but "over the top loud fashion". Nearly all their pieces feature clean lines & mono tone palettes. It really doesn't get much simpler.

    Ha. Ed Hardy is beyond ridiculous. All I envision is that the weird guy from the TLC or A&E show. John and Kate. Ha ha. If I wore it, I'd stop after seeing his old, fat ass rockin' it.

    Goddamn Steed. Fucking Rubinacci. John Lobb too, those fuckers are so annoying and pretentious. While we are at it, I wish the clubgoers would stop wearing those Edward Greens. Ugh.

    I also hate Rubinacci .

    I am pretty sure that if those bespoke horrible fitted , aromoured and overpriced jackets from the Rubinacci thread would be labeled Boss , the same snobs that wear them as one infamous and pedant DWARF would renegade from them.

    Pretty sure.

    Don't bother, every time there's a thread like this ("who is the ABSOLUTE WORST designer?") people start posting perfectly acceptable names because of pet peeves or tiny perceived sartorial slights. For instance, a lot of people in this thread have said Versace. What Versace are they talking about, the neon vintage shit floating around eBay or the really fashion-forward stuff Frieda Giannini [sp] has been putting on the runway the last few seasons? Because the runway stuff of late has been pretty fucking cool, definitely not to everybody's taste but there's absolutely no way these people could expand and articulate their opinions on why it's apparently awful without sounding like vapid sheep. Same goes for everybody who's mentioned Armani. I am the last person on earth who you could call a "fan of Armani," I think I own one Collezione button-up and I don't recall ever seeing a GA design I thought was interesting and especially nice -- yet the clothing is all thoroughly inoffensive, it's just tailored suits and shirts, how on earth is that "the most annoying brand"? [​IMG] Ed Hardy is an answer that's universally empirically acceptable. Maybe American Eagle for its shittiness and ubiquity. But Gucci and Burberry have been mentioned dozens of times in this thread; I have a feeling most of the people writing down those names don't watch the runway shows -- they probably think everything by those labels actually has a monogram pattern all over it. Guess what, it doesn't! I hate the Gucci all-over print more than I can express, but the menswear Gucci's put out lately has been understated if anything. Burberry Prorsum tends to eschew the traditional nova check, though there was one season it was blown up all over everything. I'm not trying to be a brand apologist here because they need to be kept on their toes about pricing, styling, quality and everything else; but I'm also not willing to let things go too far in the opposite direction where people shit all over every non-streetwear/non-English brand name without reason. EDIT: Here's some Gucci fw09 looks, I dare anyone to explain how they are obnoxious (you don't get to nitpick, you have to establish this is THE MOST ANNOYING brand) [​IMG]

    I actually agree with most of this post. However, the definition of annoying is highly personal. For example, while I own and enjoy items for Gucci and Burberry, I can see how one would be annoyed by those brands. When I see something by Gucci or Burberry, it always involves the monogram/nova check in an ostentatious way. They may make understated clothing, but it's rare that I see it.

    Side note: It's been a while since I've seen Versace clothing, but the ties I've seen lately were pretty bad. With apologies to Spoo (and his sales thread), the ones with the gold Medusa figure (or whatever) prominently featured on the blade of a solid colored tie are pretty horrendous.

    Bottom-line: People may find brands annoying for different reasons (ostentatious branding, price to cost ratio, prominence among ignorant people in the community, hype/saturation here, etc.)

    It's not really the brands that I hate....

    I hate people who only buy items that display the brand/logo...just to show the world that they are important.

    The perfect example of this is Hermes Man. Another common example is the university level girls who walk around with the coach little hand purses...omg I hate those people.

    The other annoying thing is hearing people justify their spending on expensive low quality brand stuff. A good example of that is guy's who only wear Hugo Boss (Suits, Shoes, shirts, ties).

    My opinion is that most brands do make some good products if you can get your hands on it on it at a reasonable price.
    This applies to everything from Old Navy to Burberry to whatever else you want to name. ($2 flip-flops for the gym anyone?)

    Sorry. Not making your case for me. Those suit jackets are comical.

    I like the loafers though.

    It sees like if they had photoshoped the face of the model, as has the same expression in all the pictures.[​IMG] [​IMG] Even the hat seems to have being added later HAHA
