Usually I went shopping I will look at the branded things such as clothes, jeans, T-shirts and etc. This is because I personally think that branded stuff is more quality than ordinary brand. It could long lasting can more fashion. However, is better to shop for necessary things as we should shop wisely and don't waste money. For me, brand come 1st. How do you think?

Well, I often buy branded things. I don't care the brand for my clothes, but I can spend my money for skin care branded goods. I personally think that skin care branded stuff is more important in term of the quality. I like to shop for necessary things at shopping centre as well as at online shop.

As song as the clothes suit you and comfortable. Then don't care what brand it is. This is the smart way of buying things.

Personally, I find brand-shopping a waste of time. I do what I can with what I have, which really isn't much. The only time I care about a brand is if its something of value such as a computer or cell phone. Cloths and other such items are meaningless to me because as long as it fits that's good enough to me. Most of my clothes come from Wal-mart, so you know its cheep but good.

Clothing are necessity and it is needed to be bought, buying branded clothes will make our money much worthy. Just like i said it is a necessity, so it means we need to buy the good ones for it to last long, and for it to give us the comfort that we are looking for. I buy wisely, that is why, i buy branded clothing rather than fake ones cause for me, i will save much more money from them.

I'll feel happy when I shop for branded clothes if it is very worthy. But i won't save money particularly just for clothes.

I used to think that brand came first in the past, but I have grown to realize that many non branded things are as good as branded ones. Sometimes you pay a lot only for the label (not in all cases, of course). I tend to buy more things that I need instead of things of a cool brand, but I still keep an eye on them being stylish

Branded stuff also need to see it valuable or not. Like what you said, pay a lot only for the label.

Rarely do I shop just because I like a brand name. I tend to shop at thrift stores, so I can usually get a lot for my money - AS WELL as brand names I like. It's a pretty good deal. I try to only shop, though, when I actually NEED something so as to save money.

If you think that branded product is worth, you could consider it especially during mega sales.

I usually go out for brand shopping. I prefer the quality and authenticity that brands offer. Also brands are more durable. Its best to save money and use it at the right time when you're shopping for brands. I prefer United Colors of benetton, FCUK, Provogue, John Players, and Levi Strauss Signature for Tshirts and Shirts. For jeans I like spykar, FCUK, Wrangler, John Players and Indian Terrain.

i would not care whether it is branded or not when it comes to buying clothing. i would choose clothing which make me look nice but normally i get most of my clothes whenever there is a sale (70% discount). i would only buy others things when there is only a need for it.

I am definitely someone who buys for brands, unfortunately for my bank account. I just think that brands offer better selection in the clothes, and color wise.

I would go for branded ones for sure coz they last long and trendy but i wait for the off season so that i can get the same branded ones at a much lesser price and enjoy the same pleasure as you guys. Inbetween if i found any stuff really cool other than the branded ones i wouldn't mine picking it up coz that fashion last for few months so i dont want to spend more on branded seasonal stuff hence i pick the normal ones.gud day.

I usually shop for the quality.lucky for me,my thrift store finds are of good quality.I also got designer items from thrift shopping.I got Marc Jacobs and D&G from secondhand stores.what I love with thrift shopping is you are the only one with that unique find.mass produced items don't offer that kind of high to me.

I buy the necessary things. But I don't have anything against branded things. In fact, I also believe in buying branded things because they last longer. However, lately it seems as if I no longer have funds left to buy branded things so I first buy the things that I need.

I never go for branded items except for gadgets. Where clothes are concerned I go for comfort and what suits me. I am kind of a trend setter!!!
