The only brand I really care about are Levi's Jeans.

Only pants I've worn for....... about 7 years now.

The brand, not the person. It would be too weird if I wore some other guy's jeans for that long straight. Plus there'd be a pantless guy running around, and nobody wants that.

I have a friend that has that shirt (in a different color, though) and it's really funny when he wears it (to me at least) because he really is a slow learner (in life, not in school).
Totally not a hypothetical...

All of my pants and a good portion of my shirts are from Randy River, a Canadian clothing store. The style is kind of skate/snowboard, but I go mostly for the pants, because they fit me better than any other pants I buy anywhere else, and they have some cool designs on their shirts. In high school I was actually in a fashion show wearing Randy River gear. Before anyone judges me, there were girls backstage with their shirts off, so nyah.

I found something good, and I'm pretty much sticking to it. But it sucks when you need pants and you go and they don't have any regular pants, because they are an edgy skate store. I just want some khakis, dammit. Pants from the Gap/the Bay/pretty much anywhere suck. Too tight in the groinal region. Honestly.

I usually don`t buy clothes because of the brand but rather the material they are made of (fuck artificial fibres), but I have found out that Teesar Inc. makes damn good pants, jackets and hats. I usually buy my clothes from a shop called Varusteleka (Accessorysledgehammer). I really hate jeans, they are uncomfortable, impractical, they only have two pokets and they look so damn ugly on me.

I realized that I only own, like, three shirts that I actually wear. Not being content with this, I just bought eleven t-shirts online.
Now after I buy some new black Levi's in the near future, I don't plan on buying any apparel-related item for the next three years. At least.

My most prized t-shirt (apart from xkcd stuff obviously) is probably the dirty microbe Toast t-shirt, which I got just a few weeks before before dirty microbe disappeared off the face of the internet.

I have places that I shop for work-a-day clothes, and then places I shop for my more casual clothes.

For work: Debenhams, Principles, Dorothy Perkins and the like

For more casual stuff: Top Shop (<3 student discount), Free Spirit, Zara. Also Levi jeans - since they do enough of a range that I can actually find stuff to fit.

All of my pants (with no exceptions) are Dockers - mostly black ones, as they are what I have worn for work since I was 16 (so for about 8 years). I find them more comfortable then jeans, and better looking. Sadly... they do tend to have durability issues, and I end up buying at least 4 a year - they tend to get holes in the crotch area. Right now, I'm finding them to have a failure point in the back pocket where my wallet is, due to me spending 30 hours a week in a car.

I need to get 4 or so pairs of "Chocolate Brown cotton pants" - which I assume are some kind of brown khakis - for my summer in Alaska, and am leary about buying Dockers for that, as I will spend an incredible amount of time out doors when not working, and do not want to change pants. So, pants that need to look decent and yet are durable - suggestions?

As for my shirts, I have a large collection of Hawwaiian shirts, a few webcomic T's, and a bunch of plain shirts, and some polos of various colors/stripes. There is a large collection of decent fleeces and long sleeved shirts (most of the latter related to Wisconsin Badger apparel, excepting my prized UPS shirt). Something like 20-30 white undershirts, and a horrid mismatch of white socks. And yes, I wear tightey whiteys, and will so long as they remain the most comfortable kind of underwear out there, for all conditions.

90% of my shirts are gifts from christmas, actually - I can only think of 3 that I actually paid for. They tend to last far longer then pants, so I don't need to replace them.

When it comes to jeans, I really like Levi's and Replay. Guess also rocks, but their jeans never seem to fit right. For everything else, I usually buy at H&M, Mango, Zara, and occasionally at thrift stores. The kind of stores you can buy lots of pretty clothes for little money. And Ralph Lauren for polo's and blouses, but I can't really say I buy those often.

As for shoes... I have more pumps than any girl needs, and yet I wear my Allstars most of the time. It's pathetic.

I wear almost all American Eagle & Abercrombie and Fitch.

The reason: my sister used to work at American Eagle, and now works at Abercrombie and Fitch as a manager so I get like 30%-70% off listed prices! Hurray! :)

White Stuff jeans, Jack Wills polo shirts and rugby shirts, John Lewis suits.

I love Jack Wills stuff. Long-lasting and comfy, but most importantly, effortlessly stylish.

Urban Outfitters (but their shit's so over priced), Buffalo Exchange and H&M. I also love Express jeans. Shoes by Diesel and from endless.com (free overnight shipping!).

What are brands? All my clothes are either bought by my parents, hand-me-downs, promotional t-shirts, t-shirts from the internet, from cheap no-name brand shops or from op shops. Or made by my Mum/Me.
