    I don’t have logos on any of my shell suits.

    I'm not a fan of big logos on clothes myself, it's personal preference though.

    I don't mind what brand I buy, as long as it's good quality and looks nice, the more subtle the logo the better for me.

    With a statement like that, you'd best post some pics of yourself up, show us what 'real fashion' is, kid...

    Were Firetrap ever a good brand? I bought a few pairs of their jeans but they always seemed to be a bit naff compared to levis

    Friend of mine had one of their jackets in the late 90s. He got mugged a lot because people thought he's the type to be carrying loads of cash...

    Admittedly I only knew about them a decade or so ago when i was after some cheap jeans. They even came with a, not so Gucci, free belt!

    You leave my humongous JNCO jeans that are all ripped up at the bottom where I tread on them with my huge boat-like Osiris skate shoes, my wallet chain, chrome ball necklace thingy and baggy Kobain-esque striped jumper that is equally tatty due to the DIY thumb holes I cut in it OUT OF THIS, you MONSTER

    Nothing I wear that isn't to do with fitness has an obviously visible logo. You should be able to tell the quality of a thread from how it feels and wears. Don't need a showy logo? Does a fine suit or waistcoat have a logo showing who made it? No!

    Sort it out.

    I wouldn't have said they're anything special. It was only summat like £80 back then, IIRC... but this was in Watford, so it might as well have been £180!

    This isn't exactly a nice suit, is it?

    I have quite a lot of t-shirts with large logos on them saying things like Metallica, Slipknot, Nirvana, Black Sabbath etc. Does this make me a chav too? Or is only certain logos/brands that get classed as chav? Any chance of sharing the list of what is and isn't chav?
