Speaking of, its obvious this was the cause of the collapse:

Ed Hardy: Jon Gosselin Was The 'Nail In The Coffin' For Fashion Brand

It's been a while since we heard much about Ed Hardy -- and Jon Gosselin is to blame, says the designer.
"That Jon Gosselin thing was the nail in the coffin,” Hardy told the New York Post this week. "That’s what tanked it. Macy's used to have a huge window display with Ed Hardy, and it filtered down and that’s why Macy’s dropped the brand."
The "Jon Gosselin thing" probably refers to the time Gosselin of "Jon & Kate Plus 8" fame was photographed in 2009 aboard a flashy yacht with Ed Hardy owner Christian Audigier. Gosselin was a diehard Ed Hardy fan, wearing the brand's signature tattoo-print tees all over Hollywood and even chatting up Audigier about a children's clothing line.
(Gosselin also got a massive Hardy-esque dragon tattoo on his back in 2010, but that's neither here nor there.)
But as Gosselin's star faded, so did Ed Hardy's. In 2010, the company collapsed and was forced to close stores, liquidate its assets, pay back creditors and give itself over to administrators at Deloitte. Just one year after being named one of Business Review Weekly's top Fast 100 companies, Ed Hardy was in shambles.
All Gosselin's fault? More like Christian Audigier's. Hardy tells the New York Post, "Christian worships celebrities so much, he will get next to anyone who is famous for anything." That included Gosselin, who had his 15 minutes of fame after his family's TLC reality series.
Unfortunately, Ed Hardy's fame survived approximately the same amount of time as Gosselin's. When's the last time you've seen a kid in an Ed Hardy shirt?

So are we hating on the double boutonniere, the wearing of an open collar shirt with a three piece suit, or that weird cutaway aspect? Or is it the hacking pockets?

Not exactly a celebrity, but did anyone see Dan Neil of the Wall Street Journal on Real Time w/ Bill Maher last night? Light grey PoW plaid with kind of a black outline, white, grey, blue and black checkerboard plaid shirt, and a navy polkadot tie. WTF?

^ How do people think fist-sized tie knots are okay? Egg-sized is pushing it.

It is nice to see a jacket that doesn't button at the sternum, but still a bit long.

jrd you're right mate. He did throw to the trash that TF with tha knot... I mean, with the money they have, one would think that at least they should hire someone to make their tie knots for them.

This is a nice suit... but the sleeves look horrible and then... the knot.

It really does make you wonder if these guys get their wares tailored at ALL. ^^
I doubt it. That suit was given to him by the designer and as long as his shoulders fit, nobody else would notice save us dummies. Note: he's on a red carpet with some squeeze next to him and a fat check from the movie. I'd wear that suit if it meant trading places.

Yeap, I would too, but then again this proves that money is not synonym of style or good taste. I bet that if you were on that photo you will still have the lady, the check but the suit will fit impecably. Am I right?

I'm sure it was as well. But it still doesn't excuse it.
