    Some are, and some are gaudy. Same as clothes really.

    Its funny, a standard jumper 30 quid, but put a trendy large fruit of the loom logo on its and its 200 quid, and all the cool t-bones must wear them.

    On a side note, i bought a baby cloth from china, and a few days later i saw the exact same one, but with a mothercare label on it. Price difference? 8x..

    Kalvin Klein underwear always made me laugh especially when worn out the top of the trousers on show to the world. You are wearing pants with another mans name on why would you want to show that off.....

    Nothing wrong with designer clothes as the fit and quality is superior but I only buy the items that have one very small logo somewhere. Got to keep it classy.

    Not always the case.
    People really wealthy will be more likely to wear custom made, rather than designer. Same people who don't feel the need to show labels.

    Perfect example are scotch and soda jeans.

    For years I used to struggle buying and wearing burtons own brand jeans. A few years ago it got to a point that they were breaking every few months.

    switched to s&s jeans (think they’re £110 a pair the last time I purchased) and haven’t looked back. Perfect fitting and they last absolutely ages.

    This is my clothes hate summed up in a meme.
    I might be sad but when I see somebody wearing a rock t-shirt and I'm 100% sure they just bought it out of Primark I'll ask what their favourite album is and normally get a blank look.

    Might have to check those out. I seem to destroy jeans in the crotch area. Must have fat thighs! Levis seem to hold up better than most but again, maybe a year or so

    I have about 5-6 pairs. And they’ve all lasted 2+ years. So they are built well.

    I’ve not tried Levi’s to compare though !

    ‘You can reduce everything down to nothing if it’s not of interest to you. Art to many is a load of pretentious BS. What mature adults usually recognise is that they might not be interested in certain things but see the value it has to others because people have different interests .

    I may have had bad luck, but the last couple of pairs of Levi's I bought did not last particularly long.
