If You’re Going To Wear Ed Hardy…
Before I continue, it’s important to admit to yourself that you like Ed Hardy gear. This man of illustrious tattoo designs continues, season after season, to pump out bold, cool designs for hip crowds everywhere. Unfortunately, the trend is starting to get a bit over-ripe: Everywhere I look at my local mall, gangs of would-be gangstas, most of them 12 to 17 years old, parade around in all things Ed Hardy… All at once! It’s because of these people that it can be awkward to admit you like Ed Hardy in the first place! After all, nobody runs around screaming “Hey, I wish I were a thug but I’ve barely hit puberty!”… Yeah, awkward. Nor do you want to look like the spoiled douche who walks around just caked in Ed Hardy. It’s not a great look.
Luckily for us all, there are more subtle ways to wear Ed Hardy than The now-stereotypical skulls, daggers, and tigers rampaging up and down your arms or across your back and chest. You can now indulge any and all retro-pop-art-tattoo fetish you may have in much more subtle ways. I did some research at stylrerocket.com, and came across some pretty interesting stuff. You can start by wearing it under your clothes: Ed Hardy boxers are pretty cool. I’ll admit I really like this pair – but they also come in briefs (and tighty whitey cut, too… why?). Wearing powerful tattoo designs this close to your skin can’t be bad for your mojo.
Next, I found a pair of flip flops I liked. These particular ones feature griffins on them – wicked – but they also coem with tigers, skulls, and… more skulls. I don’t know if I’d wear them to the beach for fear of wrecking them, but bumming around in these will make you look like less of a bum.
These technically aren’t clothing but they’re just too cool to pass up. The koi fish shot glasses and devil highball set are really sweet. When I saw these, I decided that Ed Hardy underwear may have to wait in line until I get my hands on a set or three.
Before I conclude, I would like to point out that if you’re planning to wear anything else Ed Hardy that day – anything at all – do not wear any of the accessories I’m showing you (or, for that matter, anything else Ed Hardy). The style is pretty addictive, no doubt, but Wearing a bunch of brightly-printed clothing and accessories will just make you look like you’re trying too hard, and will probably give someone a seizure. Right? Right
