    Underrated Brands

    Just curious what you guys think some underrated brands are that you don't see alot of guys out there wearing and wearing well..

    Personally, where I'm from you don't see many guys wearing the uper-tier Mark Ecko shirts (the shirts that don't actually have the rhino on them) and DKNY shirts.

    You can find most of these shirts for around $30.00. They fit much better than Target shirts. That's sort of in the middle for us who don't want to spend a ton on a Christian Audigier shirt and don't want a shirt from Wal Mart that says "Miami Ink" on the back.

    So what do you think, what is your underrated brand?

    Pretty much anything Japanese. They produce the most outrageous pieces at pretty darn affordable prices.

    I like the suggestion of the One More Round shirts, here's another question: If you're a guy that's not in great physical shape, just sort of average, or 10 15 pounds overweight, should you still be wearing one of those Affliction or One More Round shirts? Would seem a little incongruent to me.

    Not necessarily. If you're out of shape but you're a MMA fan, than theres nothing wrong with wearing an affliction shirt or a one more round shirt. How many fat drunk guys at football games do you see wearing their teams jersey? lol. And even if you weren't into MMA you could pull off wearing some Affliction shirts. Some Affliction shirts are just about mixed martial artists, where as other of their shirts are just about the badass artwork or rock bands. It's only incongruent to wear an Affliction or One more round shirt if you're one of those guidos who listen to trance, spikes up their hair, and get fake tans. I'm sorry idc how much of an MMA fan those guys can be, they look so lame wearing Affliction or any brand similar to it.

    start taking care of yourself

    , just sort of average, or 10 15 pounds overweight,
    hardest ones to lose, aint they?
    should you still be wearing one of those Affliction or One More Round shirts?
    NO!
    Even if you're Arnold Schwarzenegger, you shouldn't be wearing Affliction.




    Whoever said DKNY and Marc Ecko Cut and Sew (OP?), yes!

    I like the Inapt tight-fit peacoat. And there are a few other jackets there that are just outstanding.

    Affliction t shirts, are simply...terrible.

    Its mind numming how you think you'll stand out with a printed tee.

    Infact, its ubeleivable
    that 'brand' needs to be wiped off the face of the earth.

    I know Diesel jeans are, for better or worse, not underrated, but I like a lot of their T-shirts. They fit well, lack skulls, and the cotton is nice and soft

    Just in responce to the affliction shirts. I go out of my way to ask affliction shirt wearers if they watch mma, 80% say "huh" others say "yea chuck liddell WHOOO". Then i put them in a mounted triangle and switch to americana. I hate affliction and tapout posers.

    Haha,

    There are some products that irritate the piss out of me, Affliction and Ed Hardy happens to be some of them.

    I made pretty big post, why Affliction is not fashionable, and aside from the fact EVERYONE is wearing it, especially, here in Columbus. (Hit up Arena for example)


    It's not a design it's a brand. There are plenty DKNY shirts that resemble affliction that I like.

    I think it's overpriced and doesn't carry as much value as say Diesel or D&G.

    It seems like a fad that will go away. Those kinds of fashion fads don't stick around for too long. This is why GQ or DETAILS do not endorse those brands.

    If 5-10 years from now, Affliction is top fashion line, I will eat my words and buy you a new Affliction t-shirt.
