Hardcore Henry ★★★★

A couple of years ago, my dad bought me an Ed Hardy necktie for Christmas because he wasn't aware of the brand's "douchebag" stigma. For a very long time, there was a bit of temporary embarrassment every time I'd see the loud, easily maligned design hanging in my closet.
But then I realized that I was putting a bit too much stock in how others perceived my taste. My dad was technically correct when he thought I'd appreciate a tie with a fucking dragon on it. Of course I appreciate it. Dragons are cool. In a vacuum, a tie with a dragon on it is totally badass!
And now I wear the tie confidentally without worry of automatically being pegged as the type of bro who really likes Ed Hardy things. But more importantly, I am able to look in the mirror and personally enjoy the crazy-looking dragon on my tie without worrying about the fact that it's so objectively tacky.

I feel the same way about Hardcore Henry as I do about that tie.
