Yes, the man who Abercrombie & Fitch allegedly offered six figures not to wear their clothes, has gone into the fashion industry. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
Actually, Mike Sorrentino says the whole Abercrombie & Fitch thing was a big publicity stunt by the clothing company. He denies that they ever offered him any money at all. In fact, he says he wishes they had. Imagine being paid huge sums of money just to do nothing! But since they didn’t offer him anything he issued them with a cease and desist order against telling everyone they offered him money to not wear their clothes.
That sounds exactly like the kind of job Mike Sorrentino would love (and most of us, if we’re honest.) Instead, he has teamed up with FLOW Formal wear to launch a tuxedo range. It is called The Situation. What else could it be called!
The brand has stayed true to that label in the design of the clothes. They appear to be closely inspired by Jersey Show. Now you’re getting worried, aren’t you?
Sorrentino looks incredibly uncomfortable posing for the fashion shoot. He pouts his way through the whole thing in what to me look like pretty bad tuxes. The rest is typical Jersey shore stuff posed on beds with an array of beautiful women.
So exactly how is Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino qualified to represent a formal wear line? Apparently, it’s because he’s a trend-setter! That’s why he says FLOW approached him for this gig.
“DTF has a new meaning: Down to Formal! I’m really excited to show a classier, more sophisticated side of myself.”
Well, it is true that for once The Situation is wearing a shirt, but these photos don’t exactly scream class, do they?
