Patterned hoodies have never been too much of a bother to me. Not for a lack of ugliness, mainly because I never noticed anyone actually wearing them. All of a sudden, I walk around small-town Canada and notice hordes of people who shop at Wal-mart wearing them. I blame Pharell Williams.
Just because a cartoon printed hoodie looks good on some rap guy (or hip hop, whatever), does not mean it’s going to look good on a geeky white guy. Or girl for that matter. Have you seen the terrible things Delias is selling these days? I only went there to find a picture of printed hoodies for girls, but did not expect to be so horrified.
Mixed tapes? The person who buys this sweater is probably in the age range of 10-12 and couldn't tell the Violent Femmes from the Cocteau Twins. How terrible.
