Personally, I find that most branded stuff doesn't fit me right or feel as good to me as the cheaper stuff. I usually buy my clothes and shoes and stuff at Walmart and have never had an issue. I even go for the cheap or "off" brands when I grocery shop. I'd rather save the money and get the same quality for less money than spend a fortune. it just doesn't make sense to me to go that route... at least not for me.

Actually, when it comes to clothing, I often find that the "brand names" are of equal or lesser quality than the off brands. When my son was born, people bought him a bunch of clothes from Carter's and Baby Gap among others. Most of the clothes (which were brand new) had holes in them along the seams, where the machine sewing them skipped inches of fabric. Since I sew, it was easy to repair. Most people I know would have had to either ask for the receipt from teh sender or throw the clothes away because of that. I'm not overly fond of buying brand name clothes for young kids anyway. My son is 5, and almost every article of clothing he owns has some kind of stain, hole or other flaw from basic wear and tear. He's a kid. Kids spill and wipe their hands on their clothes, whether it's food or paint that he's got on them. I'd rather spend less and get him more different outfits.

It depends on what I buy. I usually buy branded stuff when I'm in a mall, but when in a flea market I don't buy branded stuff because they're most likely fake anyway. I have stuff I bought in Hong Kong and Bangkok that aren't branded but I really love them because they're cheap but they look nice. For branded stuff I mostly go for shirts, jackets, and jeans because these are the things that I use the most.

Even I do the same while at a flea mkt, but most of the time I end up buying clothes that don't fit me well, as they hardly have trial rooms whr we can try them out... Thanks for the response neways...

I do buy branded stuffs.who don't like branded things.? but of course We need to consider its price.because as we all know,branded stuffs are very expensive. I do buy cheap stuffs but with good qualities.sometimes,there are rare things in cheap store that you can't see on branded store. and not all branded stuffs have good qualities..

Yeah very right... But as far as clothes are concerned, I don't find unbranded clothes of almost the same quality at a cheaper price.. Also the unbranded clothes don't fit me well... Thanks for the response neways...

I am not a brand minded person. If I buy a stuff it should not have a special brand or expensive brand. As long as I can use it in proper way and somewhat good quality, I would not mind to have or buy the one with unknown brand.

Even I try going that way, but most of the time the unbranded items don't suit me as much as the branded items do... Neways, thanks for sharing...

No, I don't usually go for branded items because you can usually find a similar product for a cheaper price. With prices rising on a lot of different items, the extra cash can go along ways. Once in awhile, if my budget allows I will buy name brand clothes for my daughters but that is all. I'm satisified with generic brands for the most part.

Good for u that u can easily buy a similar product for a cheaper price.. In my case, I am not able to find similar products, so I have to go for branded clothes most of the time... Thanks for the response neways...

i think i go for brands just want to look for a new type clothes or shoes but if i can buy the same quality stuff as brands why not to choose the cheaper one.

Depends on the product. Certain things aren't worth settling for the store brand product, while with other things it's more efficient and less costly to go with the lowest brand.
