I'm just curious. There are various opinions and point of views about this.

I'm not sure if I do that. I do very little shopping cuz my wife shops for me. I might do that if it's really cheap but then again I am quite impervious to the latest thing and go for the utilitarian value every time so I don't even think if it's designer or anything like that

Oh, I see. I like the how you used "utilitarian value", nice. Besides, what if a cheap knock-off costs the same as a generic non-designer brand, which will you go for, right? =)

YES I do... I like honey... I put honey on my cereals & stuff... I tried few different brands & there weren't too much difference in taste...

Yea, but I'm not so much fond of imitations. In PI there are a lot of imitations that are way cheaper than the original ones. I don't mind buying a fake one as long as it looks good, works similar to the real ones, and I can use it for a longer time. That's somewhat I can say something that is worth it. It is not important how expensive the items are, what matters is how you carry yourself and be confident of who you are. It's not about what you have. Imitations will do the trick too! =)

Yeah, I strongly believe it's how you carry yourself and not the brand you carry. Thnaks for the response!
