When you go shopping for apparel, how important is the name brand to you? Does it have to be a well named designer for you to get it or does it matter?

Well I am the type of person who buys clothes that are comfortable to me than the name of the designer. I cant afford designer clothes so I go for local comfortable and affordable clothes. I dont fancy very expensive clothes, I only buy thos That are cheap, its not always a top priority with me. As long as I like the color and the style of the t shirt or the pants I would buy it. I seldom bu clothes, I only buy clothes when I have extra money and when only I feel like buying myself one. Buying clothes and apparel is like a luxury for me. Its something I do to treat myself and that is not on a daily basis. My top priority is food, most often than not I eat outside than buying clothes.

I really don't care about name brands. I'm more concerned about how the item looks rather than the brand. If they happen to be expensive brands then there's my problem. I'm a thrifty person and I am very price conscious but if I really like the item, I might just buy it. Most often than not, I succeed in controlling myself. I do own a few designer labels myself....only a few.

The named brands are expensive, but they are also nice. I usually wait it out and see if I am lucky enough to buy it when they is a clearance sale.Thank You for taking your time to respond:)

No, name brand doesn't matter to me. As long as it is cute, I'm happy! But fashion is very important to me; I love clothes and I love to look good!

Name brands mean little to me! Actually, current styles don't even mean that much. I just buy what I like and what I think looks good on me. Having said that, I will admit there are some name brands I do like and look for because I like the particular style of clothes they usually make. I don't buy for the name, however, but for the design.

I place more importance on the look and the price. If it looks great on me and I'll wear it out often, I'll buy it if it isn't out of my budget. I don't save up to buy designer goods because I don't believe a bit of material can be worth that much. I'd rather buy cheap, comfy knockoffs :P sometimes they look even better than the real thing! If none are available and I really love the style, I'll go the eBay way XD
