expensive cloths/brand names?

my mate has just come back from town and shown me a pair of jeans he has just spent 160 quid onhe also bought a t shirt for 80 quid, now i like to look good and look after my apperance but i could never justify spending that much money on 2 items of clothing, just because of their brand name,is it just me? do you buy brand names only or would you go for the cheaper option? (both look good and fit well)

    On jeans i usually spend about £60-80 for each pair and t-shirts can be anywhere from £20-£40, if i like something then i will spend more.

    I've no problems spending a lot on something if I reallly like it - bought a few pairs of £200+ jeans in the past. I'm also equally happy wearing second hand stuff from ebay for 99p

    Just wish I didn't suffer from an aquisition compulsion

    Same here, i have also a few pairs of my old expensive jeans on ebay and got £90+ back on certain pairs so not as bad when you look at it like that

    Won't spend more than 40 quid on a pair of jeans unless they're really really nice and will last me a long time.

    Same for tshirts, but no more than 20 quid really.

    Primark caters for me quite nicely

    only clothing I have ever picked due to it's brand is my trainers (Nike - simply because they are more comfy and last longer in my experience )

    Wearing "labelled" clothes reminds me of school . and I'd rather forget those days , and all the spoilt littlle rich brats who used to think they were better because of their labelled clothes

    Also, I have also noticed that once you get over a certain size , you aren't going to find any labelled clothes to fit anyway !

    .....Having said that , I have just bough a Prada phone

    Lazy is a word used by the obsessed, to describe those with a life.

    lol,yes i can understant people buying expensive electrical items for reliability and quality,im guilty of this as i find cheaper usually brings with it unreliability and in the end can cost you more money,i just have an issue with the expensive cloths/brand names as i dont believe you are always getting what you pay for in terms of worth.

    im with Ak i dont think i have ever spent more than £40 on jeans and would not pay more than £25 for a t-shirt.

    Thye only item of clothing i will splash out on are snowboarding jackets, my last on cost about £200ish and has lasted years!

    My favourite trousers cost £25 from next.

    Cheap wins hands down for me thank you very much!

    Only time i will spend more is if it is something i really like the look of, a designer label or badge is completely irrelevant to me.

    Designer jeans are pointless in every single way.

    Unless you are the kind of person to tuck your shirt in, in which case you would just get laughed at anyway

    Brand names mean nothing to me, but are sometimes better quality. These days with TK Maxx you can pay below average for some of the labels. For me £15 on a t-shirt and £50 on jeans is the most I'd pay, but that is mainly because I am tall and can't find jeans to fit me in the cheaper shops.

    Try looking at supreme, visvim apc, acne.

    I do buy some quality jeans, quality is a lot better than cheapo brands, nudie and edwins are what I like at the moment. Great quality for the 80-100 mark.
