No love for logos

Baby_phat We guess this top must be, like, really, really stylish. Seriously, it must be – it has ‘Baby Phat’ written all over it, providing a handy visual clue to the style-challenged that this top is DESIGNER (if Baby Phat can be called that), and therefore seriously cool. No question.

As the Fashion Police haters never tire of telling us, if something is DESIGNER then it is automatically fabulous, and while Baby Phat isn’t quite up there with Chanel, they clearly do consider themselves important enough to have splashed their logo all over their clothes, thus turning the people who buy their clothes into walking billboards for the brand. And also walking Fashion Criminals.

What do you think of highly visible logos on clothes? Automatic Fashion Police arrest, or can you tolerate them?

    I can’t bear this kind of blatant display of advertising on the part of the designer. The wearer nearly always looks naff, if a little chavvy.
    Possibly not a jailable offense though – perhaps community service?

    Personally, I don’t pay to advertise for anyone. If they want me to advertise their stuff, they can pay ME.
    In general, I also find that logos are distracting, and add an ugly touch to what otherwise might be a decent item of clothing.
    Not that I would like this top much better without the logo.

    I don’t even like clothes with writing on them, let alone branding. I’m not a newspaper and I’m not a cow.

    I try to avoid any sort of a logo on what I’m wearing… It’s always disappointing to see a great top only to turn it over and discover the company’s logo is covering the entire back.

    I find visible logos to be tacky. No Coach or Dooney & Burke for me. It seems like those clothes and accessories feel insecure, as though they aren’t good enough on their own that they need to proclaim their labelhood in a loud as voice as possible in order to be valued.

    That shirt is ugly, and I’m not really a fan of baby phat, but what about Abercrombie and Fitch t- shirts? Because I’m in love with that store and pretty much all my clothes are from there.

    gah, no logo print for me. Though I’d have to ask if that model is a man or woman…?

    I hate any logos on clothes or bags, especially when you have something as crowded as in the photo. Logo-mania is totally vulgar.
