INFEASIBLE: Armani Exchange t-shirts
AX Fashion Superpower T-Shirt
(From Armani Exchange)
There’s this weird trend in fashion, starting from the late nineties till the present, that I like to call BATTLE OF THE BRANDING. For some reason, a bunch of brands decided, “Hey guys, fuck original designs for our t-shirts, let’s throw our name on there with some FuNkY lettering! Yay!” The people at AX have always been particularly keen on the idea, and also happen to be the flat out worst at integrating their logo into the design of t-shirts.

Let me preface this Feasible option with a disclaimer: I don’t like logo integration at all really. OP just happens to be the best of the logo-crazy crap (like being the most handsome of the cavemen). You could walk by me in this and I wouldn’t scoff too loud.
INFEASIBLE: Pants with filigree all over the back pockets
(From Saks Fifth Avenue)
Putting shit on the back of clothes, versus the front, usually isn’t the best idea. With pants, any good designer learned a young age that one can pull off a little designing on the posterior but obviously nothing excessive. This guy/gal/squee didn’t get go to class that day: having double eagles-like patches gliding up someone’s buttcheeks does not the hot make.
Feasible: Subtle decals

This paif of CoH uses some ass decor, not to draw attention to the rump, but to include a subtlety that one appreciates in close proximity, not from across the room. Anyone wanna buy me a pair?
