there was a period that i was fond of branded clothes and i spent a lot of money to buy expensive clothes, but day after day i realized the branded clothes are not worth whe price they are sold, at the same time, i can buy excellent clothes with much lower price and the clothes are of good quality and fashionable, of course suitable for me, so nowdays i would like to buy not-branded clothes with less money.

I can recommend to u that the best kinds of clothes you can buy is from military surplus, they are quality and very durable. its mostly made from a fabric called cordura it simply is woven cotton and nylon and is a toughy. i loves it

I know some great brands that are cheap and pretty good quality. All clothes wear down eventually, and if the cheaper version looks just as good I see no sense in paying 10-20 dollars more for the same thing.

Hi cutepink, I noticed that, too! I'm really fond of clothes and cosmetics, and buying them is such a great therapy for me! However, I noticed that most of the brands, even the high end ones, are using thinner fabrics nowadays. Most of the time, it makes you have a second thoughts on buying them because you know for a fact that those kinds of fabric wouldn't last long. Sometimes, buying expensive clothes could just bring you a lot of regrets when you get home from shopping. Nevertheless, there are still expensive ones that have good and even premium qualities. We just have to be wiser and be more careful in buying anything. Happy myLotting!;)

I like buying branded clothes but I make sure that it's worth my money. But sometimes I prefer not to buy branded since it has the same quality like the branded. So why spend so much money when you can have it on a cheaper price!

I used to buy only the branded ones when I was still studying. Its like you look "in" when all your accessories and clothes are branded. But today, it doesn't matter anymore. But most of my clothes are still usable even after 10 years of usage. This are true with all my pants (only buy Levis 505) before. Now, I had to consider my family every time I wanted to buy new clothes.

Sometimes buying branded clothes may be worth it in the long run. But there are also those clothes that are durable even if the brand isn't that famous. You just have to be careful in choosing clothes, always check before buying.

It depends on the quality not just the brand. Some brands are expensive but the quality of their clothing is not good. Some brands are expensive but worth it because the clothes tend to last long. I'm not a brand conscious person though. I just look at what I like and the durability not whether it has a brand name or not.
