John Mayer: Douchebag, Dirtbag, Dater, Designer?

Prominent douchebag John Mayer has long been in the public eye for doing little besides dating celebrities and writing songs to which scores of high schoolers got to second base for their first times. But hey, guess what? He totally does something else — he’s channeled his effortlessly terrible demeanor into an equally effortlessly terrible accessory collection! In a “well, that makes sense” move, John Mayer designs flimsy wallets these days.

After successfully collaborating with leather company Barrett Alley on some ugly bracelets reminiscent of what Hollywood thinks 90s stoners wore, Mayer and the designer decided to come out with money-holding accessories, as well. The wallets, called “Judas Pouch,” come with a hand-stamped limited edition card because they’re apparently only making 50 of them.

Yes, they may seem generic and likely to fall apart if you opt to get dollar bills back instead of a five, but fear not! Everyone will have the opportunity to see how exciting and expensive your purchase was in some way or another. According to Coco Perez:

The limited edition collection of wallies are made out of premium deerskin leather with interior linings made from hand-pulled custom Japanese deadstock fabrics from the late 1800s to early 1900s and imprinted with JCM–John’s initials.

Looking to snag one of these original John Mayer designs? Pick them up in his official store. BTW, the wallet is $190 and the cloth bracelet is $95. Scroll back up and look at that wallet. Yes, $190. No, I’m not joking, and I’m sorry for that. I really am.

    What exactly is the point of this vitriol you’re spewing? You really needed to spend an hour writing an angry column because somebody did some craftwork? If you don’t want a wallet, don’t buy one. He hasn’t done anything for you to carry on about.

      We are, in part, a fashion site. We compliment good fashion and make fun of bad fashion. This is not unlike numerous other fashion news sources. And he didn’t do any craftwork; he just put his name on a piece of leather that was constructed by other people.

    I agree with Wally. At least John Mayer isn’t writing unneccessarily harsh articles about someone he’s never met. That would make him a real douchebag.

    Thank you, Brandon and Wally for your intelligent responses. I agree the wallets don’t look like much, (and I’m sorry he used deerskin), but some people will pay $190 for it ’cause they think it’s cool. One thing you can be sure of is, if JM designed those himself, it’s because he’s into that retro 60′s/70′s hippie-era clothes/music right now, and everything he does comes straight from the heart. If you read the entire RS article, you will realize that his comments weren’t racist, and as for the misogyny, he’s admitted he was being an immature ass – and now maybe you could stop being one.
