Skulls Returning to Serious Sartorial Conversations?

John Varvatos Skull and Crossbones Tee via, $68.00
John Varvatos Skull and Crossbones Tee via $68.00.
For a few years now skulls have been seen only from the toolbag ghetto of designer fashion: Ed Hardy, Monarchy, Affliction, or any other brand The Situation wears. But this fall John Varvatos (one of our faves, BTW) is showing a skull tee (albeit without flames) and skull jewelry.

In spite of the JV endorsement, pass for another season at least.
