Is LL Cool J’s clothing line too ugly

LL Cool J


Rapper LL Cool J’s luxury clothing line is failing miserably as the wares are struggling to sell.


The hip-hop star signed a deal with Sears department stores to stock his signature clothing line in May of 2008, but sales have drastically fallen and the designs are now being advertised at up to 50 percent off the suggested retail price.


Despite substantial price marked downs, the department store has been unable to sell enough items to break even.  Cool J joins fellow rapper Andre 3000 who’s Benjamin Bixby clothing label has also fallen on financial difficulties and slow sales.


Clothing critics and designers have ruled harshly against Cool J’s clothing line claiming, “the designs aren’t that attractive and grossly overpriced.  Plus, who buys luxury clothes at Sears…just a bad combination?”


Diddy’s Sean Jean and Russell’s Simmon’s Fat Farm label have withstood the current economic downturn. Which raises the questions, “Are these clothes just too ugly for people to buy or is it something else?”

    Not if that’s what LL has on right now!!! Man, he looks good in that photo… and if that’s his clothing, then I give two thumbs up!!! Or maybe I’m giving him the two thumbs up… why worry with clothes if you got a body like LL… he should just keep promoting his work out plan.

    Well I have a 14 year old son and a & year old son and I buy them his clothes. I accidently stumbled upon them because I did not know that he even had a clothing line. The clothes are really nice and by boys seem to like them especially my older son because nobody else is wearing it and they wanna know where he got it from and he won’t tell. Anyway the advertisement for his clothing is piss poor Guaranteed if they had good advertising they would sell better. The only thing I don’t like is that he don’t have a variety of colors and if I’m not mistaken he has clothes for little girls too.
