Ed Hardy Marijuana Hats By Christian Audigier
Ed Hardy marijuana hats by Christian Audigier look worse than the other crappy things he sells. At least some of his other junk has something a little more detailed than a bunch of goofy pot leaves. We assure you, if you’re a pothead, people will know or will be able to tell. You will not, by any means, need a pricey hat to prove it. But speaking of those additional bits of merchandise he launches to dorks with money, let’s take a look at some of Audigier’s other Ed Hardy hats.
In short, Christian Audigier’s caps are modern, trendy trucker caps (didn’t know that was a possible combination) with images printed on them that look like tattoo designs. As far as artwork in general, these hats tend to sport attractive color combinations and some nifty line art. Ed Hardy hats are geared toward both genders, which isn’t something you see everyday with headwear. Then again, how many women want to wear trucker hats? The art placed upon each hat is practically the entire line’s best and only redeeming quality, but it’s so wasted being slapped onto a stupid hat. Another great thing about the artwork is that it shows shades of JNCO’s style, which is good for some and maybe not so much for others depending on the tastes of the individual.
Comfort is great with these hats and they’d bloody well better be considering how much they cost. The biggest issue with these tattoo-influenced caps is the price. They’re resilient for sure, but is it really worth it to squander between $50 and $90 on a single hat? Ed Hardy hats might be tolerable, but they are by no means as amazing as their prices would imply unless they’re plated with gold and are flame-proof. You’d be better off drawing your own design and getting a cap off Cafepress. In terms of the price tag, Christian’s line of headgear fails miserably. We know you have to make money somehow, Chris, but holy crap! These hats should turn a person invisible with a cost like that. If you can’t live without one of Audigier’s hats, look for one used or on clearance and save a little money.
Here’s the thing, though. Trucker hats, rhinestones and funky art do not mix at all. A graphic designer once said that a good idea can save a bad design, but a good design can’t save a bad idea. Audigier’s hats fall under the latter category and this is because trucker caps aren’t meant to be artsy or girly. Come on, guys. How manly are you going to feel in a pink hat swathed in fake gems and roses? As far as this review is concerned, a hat by Audigier is a recommended jerk Halloween costume starter kit. Just add saggy jeans and some tawdry gold bling. Ed Hardy Marijuana has have absolutely no serious fashion worth. Keep it out of your closet. There are far nicer things to burn $80 on.
