Clothing labels - Which do you prefer?

When buying clothes, do you prefer to buy label brands or the cheaper store brands? I have my own fave brands but over all, as long as the price is right & the clothing is not faulty, I really don't care about it being a big label or store label. I have found with some clothes, there is no difference but the price. What do you think?

Hi moon, i always wear branded clothes bcoz i feel more comfortable in it. Cheapest clothes are the cause of some skin problem, i have experiences when i used years ago. From that time i am habituate to wear branded. More over it express my personality. Thanks.

I can completely understand where you are coming from & would do the same thing if I had sensitive skin like you.

i won't say that i am not brand crazy. i love to wear brands. i am very fond of levi's..anyway i won't also say that i only wear one brand. i also go in for cheaper brands. at times i also buy the fabric and get it stitched for myself. i love to wear different styles and love to see many clothes in my wardrobe..

You sound like me...I love some brands but will wear any brand as long as it's of good quality which in these days, most of the cheaper brands are.

I prefer to buy clothes that are cheaper but has good quality. There are clothes out there that aren't really that famous but they have excellent quality and those are the ones I like to buy. I feel that buying branded clothes are just a waste of money and I feel I'm being cheated off a shirt that cost more just because of its brand name.

I totally agree & usually do the same thing when I go shopping for clothes...I'd rather save some money on decent store brand clothing that waste more money on branded clothes.

when it comes to clothes and shoes i prefer branded coz it will last for years even if its expensive than those cheaper but only last for months and you need to buy again. some cheaper item will not even last for months but only for weeks. brnadless item have nice design that will help attract the buyers and i used to buy some too. but then as what i expect, it only last for days though its beautiful. sometimes i saw this very lovely sandals, i bought it but while i was walking it broke up and i dont know what to do that time.. after that, i already learned my lesson... but then i still try to find branded clothes and shoes that is not that expensive, coz some have the same quality but more expensive and looks like your only paying for the name of the brand and not the item itself. too bad...

I can see where you're coming from, there are still some no name brands that are of extremely poor quality but there are alot more that are made of a better quality these days

I prefer to buy clothes that hang well and are of good quality, but a competitive price. I leave the designer labels for people with more money than sense. When we holidayed in Turkey, we were told that the fake designer goods the country is notorious for were made in the same factory with the same materials by the same workers on the quiet. If I needed convincing that designer gear wasn't worth the extra money, that did it for me.

I think that would be enough to convince me too...plus not all of us have the money to waste our money on designer labels no matter how much we may love them

I am not interested in brand name labels. If I see clothes I like, I will buy them. That's that. I will buy clothes as inexpensively as I can. i like what I like, and have no interest in brand names.

I completely understand & I'm the same...I mean I do have my fave brand of clothes but overall, I don't care what it is, if I like it, I'll buy it...I even love going op-shopping (charity shops) & finding bargain clothing there :)
