Do you always buy BRANDED CLOTHES?

i have friends who always buy clothes that are branded because of the quality, and the style, minus the price. for me, it doenst really matter if it's branded or not. if it has good quality, reasonable pric and i can afford it and it looks good on me then i buy it. i think some people still go for branded clothes even if they cannot afford buying them, just because they wanna look good and impress other people. they dress well but they can hardly eat decent food and they have plenty of debts. they give this image that they are rich, belonging to the social class. what PRETENSES people make! wonder how they live this kind of life.

I'm not used of buying branded clothes anymore. I prefer now buying "ukay-ukay". And sometimes clothes from a mall that was locally made here, like UNBRANDED (from the makers of Spoofs), SPOOFS, and other clothes from american blvd. It's practicallity with a quality!;)

i totally agree with you. for me, brands are not important when buying clothes. what matters is the quality and how they look on me. but i guess you should not be afraid to spend a little in clothes if it could provide you good quality. it is not a good idea to buy cheaper clothes if it will only last you for several washings.

I honestly could care less what brand name was on anything I own. If I like it, I'll wear it no matter what. As long as I feel comfortable in whatever I am buying & I find it to look good that is all that matters to me in the end. I don't know for me personally.. I am not willing to spend an outrageous amount of money just because it's "brand name." Sometimes you can find a similar shirt somewhere like walmart or zellers & it's way less then the other shirt that is brand name. And it looks just as good! I've always thought of brand names as just an excuse to ream people for more money.. And I still feel that way to this very day! Price to me is much more important than brand.. It's sad, because I've noticed that a lot of people these days are so tied up with brand names that they just identify themselves with these brand name clothes. And then they never end up learning who they are as a person.. Outside of the label that is. In conclusion I think the quality of your clothing is much more important than the brand.

No, brand means nothing to me. I go for the affordable ones with high quality. Branded clothes aren't always of quality. Also, there are a lot of alternatives for buying clothes. With regards to style, it comes on how you handle your clothes. Even if you wear the most expensive branded clothes but it doesn't suit you, you still don't have style.

I think it is really sad that people feel under pressure to wear the 'right' labels. I have had clothes that cost a fortune and things from the market, I truly do not find designer wear to be superior overall.

Branded clothing is usually of better quality. Blazers and skirts are lined, most items are double seamed, choice of materials is better. So what I do is go thrift store shopping. I never go on a day when I am in a hurry because it takes time to brand hunt. I love to get bargains. You don't pay near the price that the original owner did and you can even find brand new items with the sales tag still on. I wash or dry clean and I have a spiffy new outfit.

you are somewhere right that it doesnt matter you are wearing branded cloths or not but some times it matters a lot where there is matter of quality. you may get quality in non-branded items but rearly, whereas branded items have quality always.even the brands gives us grante on their items. i m not saying to wear brabded clothes always but sometimes, somewhere you have to switch over to branded clothes. because socity matters a lot in your living style.

I wear branded clothes. If I am buying branded clothes that means quality is assured. I am not that rich but I prefer branded clothes. There comfortness is unique, style is mindboggling. I dont purchase them in large numbers but whenever I buy I buy branded clothes.

sometimes i buy branded clothes, and sometimes not. I dont buy it everytime, i just buy the clothes that i feel comfortable with even if its branded and not branded. And sometimes they are some nice clothes that are not branded but they look like nicer than ones that are branded. We are just paying the name of the branded clothes, not its quality.

It depends what kind of person you are .If you are a superficial person that branded staff making you somebody then you are traped in bying all this expensive things but if your philosophy about life is deeper and more practical then you bye only what you need and nothing more at the best price that you can get.

I also buy clothes from different brades but not all the time, sometimes the "anonimus" brandes looks much better than the original ones.
