I started wearing decent brands/quality once I met my gf/wife (not a coincidence.) I do find a noticeable difference in the cut and quality of designer labels vs department store brands. However, I refuse to buy anything at retail price: hence my bank balance takes a hit around boxing day. Preferred brands? Aussie stuff mostly: Marcs, Satch, Saba. I do like some English brands (Paul Smith, Ted Baker, Ben Sherman) but can't justify the added expense - except for my wedding. Picked up a pair of Burberry Black Label jeans in japan which are very comfortable (and a lot cheaper than "real" Burberry.) There is a real improvement to the self-esteem from wearing clothes that look good on you.

To save my geek pride however, I never shave or iron :) And all my tshirts are from webcomics (xkcd, megatokyo, qc.) Cheap jocks too: no value there, especially now I'm married ;)

I would think nice skivvies would be just as or even more important after you're married. Ladies like to see their mens tushies covered by stylish undies in good condition. No stained and torn tighty whities that have lost all their elastic, please.

Heh. I kid, i kid.

To be honest, I don't understand the popularity of tighty whities anyway. I've never seen them advertised here; coloured briefs seem more popular.
BTW: in Australia, skivvie = turtleneck. (At least, where I grew up.)

I wear black George's pants for school everyday (we've got a dress code - single-colored, non-denim, non-white [not sure why] pants and a collared shirt with no large logo - essentially just dress like a prep...hence "prep school") and whatever collared shirts look good.
For human clothes, I wear Goldtoe socks and Levi's black jeans, and I think I'm going to be much more fond of my next batch of them, now that I've heard of turning them inside out and washing cold. I've been wearing my first pair of Vans (black, of course) for a while, and I think I'm gonna stick with that brand. For shirts, I just wear t-shirts; I plan on going shopping (over the tubes, obviously) for a bunch of band shirts some time in the near future.
Hm...did I miss anything? Um...I wear a Nautica black corduroy jacket everywhere - in Florida - it's that amazing.
Think that's about it =D

I generally wear dark Navy topman jeans (I have 3 pairs of the same jeans, though 1 or 2 pairs don't really fit anymore - to be replaed on payday), a web-comic/artists/graphic size small American Apparell T-shirt, grey H&M hoodie (on my forth one of these) and a pair of nike old schools (third pair).

For going out I wear said Jeans, "generic going-out shirt" (from Poketo.com but they don't sell it anymore. It had lots of zebras on. Looks better than it sounds), suit jacket and brown Italian style shoes (also both from topman).

I've got to highly reccomend topman shoes - they're pretty much industructable. My first pair have only been re-soled once in 2 years after miles and miles of use.

I used to wear the going out thing but with a collared shirt pretty much every day. I won best dressed award!

I forgot to mention one thing that I wear, that I honestly never would have bought if I had to pay full price. I own a Spyder ski jacket because I won it in a raffle the local sport store was holding. They were holding a fund raiser for a children's charity, winner got a brand jacket of their choice up to a certain value. I figured "Eh, it's a good cause," dropped ten dollars, and got a rather surprising phone call four days later. o_o

I tend to buy my decent clothes in Spain when staying with my mum. I go to a shop called Traib, which only sells 'cool'. Currently my standard getup is Dickies baggy-ish blue jeans, and a Tribal long sleeves T-shirt. Really comfortable to :D

If you want jeans that don't fade fast, don't get Land's End. *shudders* My boyfriend has collected over fifteen pairs of their black jeans. They're terribly cut, horrible fit, and fade like hell. And yet he won't get rid of them just in case he needs junk jeans. Yes, fifteen pairs of junk jeans... in case he decides to paint a bunch of house, rolls around in mud, and break the washing machine for fifteen days straight. On the other hand, and much to my dismay, their stuff seems to last forever.

Anyhow, for black jeans (or other things):
-cold water
-inside out
-the special "for black clothing only" detergent. Some major detergent brand makes it, but I can't find it online. It's $8 at Target. I've used it, it does its job.

For clothing brands, I find a specific JCPenney brand (Mixit) works wonderfully. Their pants are built for females like me who have a small lower waist and a ghetto booty. Yeah, you heard me, a badonkadonk booty. I also love Heavy Red's clothing line. Expensive but gorgeous.

Ahh, I'm a label whore. I admit it.

-Abercrombie
-AX
-French Connection
-Express
-Banana
-True Religion

8)

If you buy at the right time, you can get some really amazing deals. I got an Abercrombie hoodie for $28(!) once, by buying after the holidays. AX only has the Armani name licenced, so they're not bad in price either. French Connection has shirts for under 30 bucks regularly. Express makes great jeans (I've skidded on pavement in my X2's and there was not even a slight sign of wear... I was stunned). Also, True Religion makes the most comfortable and best looking pairs of jeans you will ever wear, period. =p

I've said too much.

Is that actually true? It seems like the opposite with dresses, I can fit into something that says it's size 12 and $12 at Ross, but the nice expensive dresses at the mall that I hate, won't zip up half way in a size 14.

I don't usually think much about brand names, as I'm usually preocupied with the part of clothes shopping that feels like a series of strangers reminding me of all the ways in which I'm unnattractive. Then teasing me by having the pants sizes stop half a size smaller than I can comfortably fit into.

I'm not really brand loyal, I tend to shop all over the place. I like Le Chateau for nice shirts/jackets and jewellery. I used to like H&M a lot more, but their style has kind of changed and everything I buy from there falls apart. :roll: I also like Old Navy and Urban Behaviour... I buy a lot of clothes online, too, from places like http://www.modcloth.com/ and http://www.shanalogic.com/. I also like shoes too much and spend a lot of money at Aldo.

North Face. I'm really, really, really into being warm.
Other then that I'd say I dress nicely but mainly just the normal nice jeans and a t-shirt look. Like someone said earlier, if you're dressed badly people notice the clothes but if you're dressed well, people notice you. I'd never thought of that before but I like it.

I make it a point to not prefer any brand over another, and buy on the basis of:

comfort
price
not looking absolutely retarded

The third is loosely held, i only take it into consideration by asking my sister if it looks ok.

She usually shakes her said and says "Whatever" in an amazingly exasperated tone of voice, which has actually become my sign of DO IT.

Almost the same for me (I am a girl, just to let everyone know). I think maybe 3/4 of my shirts are Threadless, but I actually do wear pants and the occasional other shirt.

I hate having brand name splashed all over me. Yes, I like nice clothes, but I like the ones that don't use my chest as a billboard. Some stores I frequent are Urban Outfitters, Aritzia, American Eagle (almost exclusively for jeans, though), Lucky, Nordstrom (Seattle pride), and local stores.

Yeah, I definitely had a "surf fashion" phase. Then I got really, really fed up with everything I owned having a hibiscus flower and ROXY emblazoned on it. Such is life.

i really like gap, and i would wear clothes from urban outfitters if i was large enough. [EDIT] i like target and nanette lepore. i would fill my closet entirely with nanette lepore, marc jacobs, and burberry if that would not cost my entire family's life savings and then some. as is, nordstrom's is very good. [EDIT] i alternate between fancy, really femenine or out there clothes and squarish things that would look significantly better on a male but are very comfortable. that's where target comes in, mostly,[EDIT] i do imagine i have good taste, though. i sort of want to be a fashion designer [EDIT] b/c it's like you're making something you need anyways into art, and that sort of makes me happy. and the only pairs of shoes i have are mary janes and these awesome boots which have actually managed to make me like them. they LACE UP in the BACK. and they look like cavalry boots, according to my mother. i think they look like cowboy boots but way, way cooler. also, for a few months up until maybe february all i would wear was olive drab, a brown corduroy skirt that i love, and those boots. which is, in retrospect, sort of weird.
maybe if this signature is witty enough someone will finally love me.

I got 2 pairs of black jeans like, 4 years ago that are still black. Of course, they're now barely wearable as they are way too damn tight for some reason and also have holes in them anyway. They were levi's anyway.

Apart from that, I have no designer clothes whatsoever, apart from 2 xkcd shirts.

However... I am planning to put in an absolutely massive xkcd shirt order soon, so yeah. (As in, gather as much interest as possible among people I know to save on shipping costs to australia). Should be able to get to 10 shirts easily. I'm still thinking even 50 is a possibility.

The largest % of my clothes from one brand are Threadless shirts, therefore American Apparel, who I think does good work. Oh, unless you count all my Victoria's Secret cotton knickers. Trusty trusty knickers.

I'd probably have more American Apparel stuff besides their gloriously cut t-shirts if there were a shop here where I could try stuff on.

Oooh- I love Saucony shoes for walking, Asics for running, Merrell for hiking.

I do not wear black jeans.

since it hasn't been said yet, I'm a big fan of about 60% of the prAna clothing I see. I am, however, currently too poor to afford their stuff regularly.

Oooh, I've never heard of prAna. I just looked at their site; looks nice. I'm kind of weirded out though. It's a British shop, but they call them "pants?" What's with that? I kind of like FatFace and WhiteStuff clothes. I don't know if they're British or international, but I can't afford it anyway besides Christmas sales. In the US I also like American Eagle and Urban Outfitters. In the UK, a few things at the Gap will do in a pinch.

Edit: OKok, nevermind, that was weird. prAna is clearly American. I thought it looked incongruously sporty. And now it makes more sense that I've never heard of it.

Yeah, it's an American company. Their base is primarily climbing and yoga clothing (which, as it happens, overlaps quite a bit in its usefulness), which is probably why I like it so much. Also, how often do you find socially acceptable stretchy pants for the men-folk? Rarely, that's how often.

I seem to be the only person here who likes logos. No just plain text logos though, the more unreadable and cool looking the better. Its really just a design with some barely legile text at some part, so 'sall good.

Right now I'm wearing this. It's probably the coolest expression of nerdiness ever, and I love it. I'm at Barnes and Noble with a cup of coffee and a whole bunch of programming books by me and I feel like such a nerd yuppie.

I now declare Nerd Yuppie a new trend that all should aspire to. It's a blend of sexy and smart and epitomizes the intelligence culture. Yes, there's an intelligence culture now, and we rock.

I would totally, but, alas, we probably live on opposite sides of the world, so they would never light up. Which would defeat the purpose :( .

As far as pants are concerned, American Eagle is the only brand that I'll wear. I've tried countless other brands and they're the only brand that does the trick for me. For shirts, I wear polos 90% of the time. Ralph Lauren and Lacoste for the most part, but I have some other stuff as well.

*EDIT* I forgot to mention I'm an underwear brand ho (boxer-briefs of course). Oddly enough, my Burberry boxer-briefs are my least favorite, but some random brand from Wal-Mart are my favorite. Funny how that works out.
