When shopping for let's say clothes, shoes, bags etc.. do you always go for a specific brand? And do you go for originals? Why or why not?

I don't normally buy branded clothes coz they're expensive. I rarely buy expensive clothes. I buy what I like and what would look good on me. Branded or not.

I have never been a big fan of shopping,and I am not the type of person that likes to go shopping a lot,because it is not always fun,and it usually means spending money,which is never fun,but me and my fiance do go shopping from time to time usually when we go shopping we go with my mother to do her grocery shopping so we can help make sure she does not forget anything,and so we can help her load and unload the car,or sometimes me and my fiance will do a little shopping if my mother is either too busy or too tired to go shopping,and lately we have done a little shopping for our wedding which is set for next September and I can not wait until we become husband and wife,for some things we will go for specific brands because they work better than others,but for most things like drinks and stuff we buy whatever is cheaper since food and stuff is getting so expensive,and whenever we buy cloths we usually also buy whatever is cheaper because I do not think specific brands matter as long as the clothes are comfortable,that is what should matter,and buying specific brands or originals usually cost more money,and it is better to save money whenever possible.

I do shop for brands but mostly for me it is so I know I am getting the ebst quality for my money and am familiar with the brands so I know what to expect of it. I do go for new things and would not wear something used, as far as weither or not something is a knock off as long as it fits and looks good on me and will last the same amount of time I could care less what brand it is. I normally shop at the same stores and buy the same brands so I don't usualy have to worry about that.

Hi jmp_72! Welcome to mylot. If I can afford I will get the brand ones for clothes, shoes, bags and etcetera, (but not big brands)because they last longer. But I also don't mind buying stuffs that are not branded, because sometimes they are some that are good quality.

To me it doesn't matter what brand I buy. Although I do like the fit of some brands better than others. But if I found a different brand with the fit I like, I'll still buy that. On t-shirts I tend to only buy brands that don't stamp their logo on the front.
