7. Android hoodie


Looking like it was cut from my grandma’s ‘avocado’ bath mats, the Android hoodie is a near-miss for Google. It could have been so cool, and yet it looks like that. It’s also sexist: despite it being a pretty unisex design, there’s no men’s version.

Sexist Android hoodie, £16.84 from the Google store

8. Tumblr varsity sweatshirt


Buy 100 boxes of these. Set up shop outside Urban Outfitters selling them for 3x the price. Retire a millionaire.
