I’ve seen a lot of Affliction MMA-related T-shirts and Ed Hardy tattoos-related shirts. Both brands are heavily associated with Jersey Shore-wannabe douchebags.
Ed Hardy wearing douchebags
Affliction wearing virgin tough guys
Which resulted in Affliction and Ed Hardy (Christian Audigier) T-shirt wearers being banned from some public etablishments. No joke!
Talk about a douchebags segregation.
As impregrated in popular culture as they were. Both brands were extremely lucrative.
Affliction Clothing peaked in 2008 with $100 Million in revenues (sales) and they even had their own MMA promotion (Affliction Entertainment) from 2008 to 2009 with Donald Trump as a major shareholder and Trump’s fixer Michael Cohen as COO.
Meanwhile, Ed Hardy (Christian Audigier) peaked in 2009 with over $700 MILLION in gross revenues!!!
This resume all Affliction shirts.
Let’s see a more interesting, and current, MMA themed kind of shirt.
Just by looking at those ears, you can see that this guy is a legit MMA Fighter.
Nothing douchebag about him.
A huge MMA Fighter smashing the face of a poor bastard into a pulp is certainly more MMA and badass than random skulls, birds and rhinestones patterns?!
The above T-Shirt and the Artwork on it is named SLAUGHTERSPORT Kid of the Satans Schlongs Collection created by PYGOD.
Another fake Affliction wearing fake tough guy ready to fight.
Nothing tough about wearing an Affliction shirt.
