Jersey Shore's Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and his new Tuxedo Line

on Oct 05, 2011 @ 03:58 pm

The Situation is developing a line of tuxedos for FLOW Formal Wear called, "The Situation". 
He apparently told In Touch:  “[FLOW] approached me because I’m a trendsetter. DTF has a new meaning: Down to Formal! I’m really excited to show a classier, more sophisticated side of myself.” (via

Need I remind you that Abercrombie and Fitch asked him to stop wearing their clothes?

Jersey Shore is not the most trendsetting place I can think of and Mike is not the first person I would ask to develop a line of formal wear. 

What do you think of this? Would you ever buy any of these?

Okay, so I watch the show. I just have one question? When did he become a trendsetter? Guys have been wearing track pants, and button downs, going to the gym and gelling their hair for as long as I can remember?

There is nothing about his style that makes me want to look into this further. Plus I wouldn't support him by buying anything from his line, or any of the cast for that matter.

I find the show funny, and its a guilty pleasure to sit around with friends and giggle, and laugh at their crazy antics, but I couldn't be responsible for financially supporting any of them!

"trendsetter" on Oct 06, 2011 @ 09:04 am

Sadly, you can become a trendsetter for the wrong reasons too. Think of Kate Gosselin's iconic hairstyle - one that many women are still sporting but notably NOT KATE GOSSELIN HERSELF. Don't even get me started on Snooki or the Kardashians.

As with any trend that's promoted by any celeb, I always evaluate the clothes on their own merits. I wouldn't buy something because someone uber stylish endorsed it, nor would I avoid a style I love because someone I don't like is associated with it.

If there is a celeb who I'm truly disillusioned with, I would probably avoid financially supporting them by buying that item - I'd look for a suitable alternative. But honestly, I'm more likely to look at the company's social and environmental record as an incentive or disincentive to shop. I try to avoid companies who use child labour or have been responsible for ecological destruction. Spokespeople come and go, but manufacturing and purchasing policies often stay in place for years and decades.

Creepy Stare! on Oct 06, 2011 @ 09:22 am

Is anyone else noticing his creepy yucky stare- it is the same one in every picture!!! And what is with those ladies that are lurking around the corner in the background in every shot?

Never gonna land on Oct 06, 2011 @ 03:08 pm

Yes, he's soooo creepy! And may I add, just a really bad person in general. I would never want any guy I know to walk around looking like him. I hate to be a hater but he is an all around douche. By the looks of these poses I really hope he doesn't pursue modeling. I also watch the shore as a guilty pleasure and he is the one person I would not miss.

I've never watched the show so I don't know this guy at all. But just based on his clothes, he's not really wearing anything new. What he's wearing, guys already wear nowadays and have worn long before he thought of it himself. I don't see anything new in jeans and blazer, dress pants and suit/blazer top, two tone stripe blazer, etc. I really don't see anything new in any of this. I will say that this style is better on someone with a better face :-) Something about his face is weird. Or maybe it's all the comments I've read here about him and his douche-y ness that's influencing my eyes lol

This proves the saying about ANY man looks good in a suit.
