Stay Away From That.

So I just left a comment on my own blog.. but then it got me thinking.

Saw this guy out tonight.. and he had a monogram on his shirt .. on the pocket. I like those kind of things.. my hubby has a few of those..

But with further inspection.. the monogram was:

BLT

Who would do that?

Got me thinking... Do any of you have really bad monograms?

:-)

keep it clean...

My initials are LKK and I don't like them for 3 reasons...
1. L is a weird looking letter in script.
2. I don't like the "double K"
3. It's one step away from KKK and that's just creepy!

I have to agree lisagh Mine is LLW L's are NOT attractive and if you do it WRONG...you look like Lavern! :) I stick to just using my W alone and I love it!

my initials used to be BAG and then when i got married they changed to BAH. it's not so bad when you stick to tradition and put the H in the middle.

I monogram for a "hobbie" and even mine isn't great...AND..The worst was LSD... but I never said a word to my client!

melissa c said...

I recently gave my sister a monogram bag, with her last name in the middle - DOA - dead on arrival!

My god daughter's initials are BAG too. Since she is only 2 yrs, I stick with just a B monogram,or her first name (Bridget)

My daughters initials are LEE. When she was younger she always hated her monogram because she went to school with two boys named Lee and they always asked her why she had their names on everything. Now she is a freshman in college and eveything is monogrammed so we keep the big E in the middle.

My initials now are SAW. I never really monogrammed anything with all 3 initials. My new monogram after I get married this summer is SAS - I think it fits me pretty well. In the past year or so, (as I posted yesterday on my blog) I have been getting S monogrammed things. For now they can stand for Sarah (my first name) but after I get married, it will work for the both of us! PS - I have a friend with the initials LSD - I think it is pretty funny!

Kristin said...

My initials are KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken)!!

STL Sarah said...

My new married initials will be SLM in just a few months. It makes me thing of "slam." And when you group them this way: sMl it looks like "small, medium, large."

STL Sarah said...

Oh, and "slum" too! I don't like that one at all...

sisters with style said...

My brother in-law's initials are TNT. In fact, my mil did on purpose. This is just so her.

Anne said...

My sister in law's monogram is PSR. I got her a monogrammed koozie and laughed when I told her what her monogrammed souned like. I don't think she uses the koozie.

anne.. now that is FUNNY.

Shell in the City said...

I have a friend with the initials ASS. Need I say more?

tulipmom said...

If my husband and I were to monogram linens they'd read NED. Can you imagine if my first name started with a "B" instead of an "N"? Our sheets would have the monogram "BED"! I'd feel like I was back teaching elementary school and labeling everything in my classroom.

Anne said...

Good grief, I really need to preview and edit my comment before I publish it. Please excuse the typos.

MAllen said...

I am not very happy with how my initials look in a monogram. It is MAT, and my husbands first name begins with P so if we have anything monogrammed together it is MAP.

By the way I always really enjoy reading your blog!!!

Before I married my initials were MSG (with G being the first initial of my last name). So I was the additive to Chinese food. One of my sister's initials before marriage was MEG (her name isn't Megan but it is close).

Sara said...

My initials are SEL. I refused anything monogramed with my middle name because to me it was close enough to sell, so my school backpack had just SL. If the L is in the middle though, that's fine, but only in script.

SBCVandy said...

I almost did...My parents thought about naming me Amy Susanna, which is a really pretty name. However, my last name starts with an S, so they thankfully thought better of it.

My daughter is KEG. She should be very popular at Fraternity Parties in the future....

My monogram improved when I got married. I had four initials growing up-OREB. I hated it because I wanted circle monogram sweaters. Now I am EBH, much better. OREB is way too similar to Oreo.

Kerry said...

A friend of mine's daughter is MRS! I think it's kind of cute.

Erin said...

One of my best friends has a tricky one...AEG, which is fine, unless you go traditional and put the last name in the center: AGE!

Monogram Momma said...

My oldest son's initials (in correct order) are VDM. Yes, that's right. VD. When we were naming him, we literally almost changed the name b/c of the VD.
My youngest son's initials are NAM and it always makes me think of the MAM pacifiers. I can't win!

Kimberly said...

Mine are KIF and my married name will change it to KIJ, i can't win with the "i" I always wanted my last name to start with an "m" so my monogram would be "KIM".

LSD is kind of bad, but so would STD.

spymum said...

Great post - i am chuckling away as ASS and STD!! And to have BLT as a monogram is just hilarious! Tee hee!
