Guys in Lacoste, Ralph Lauren, Armani, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss etc. always catch my eye. I love good quality and often it shows that he has a sense of style... But sometimes a good brand isn't enough if you don't know how to combine it.
With this said I do also enjoy guys in Abercrombie and Fitch and other similar brands as long as they combine it correctly and look good/comfortable in it.
I don't think people look stuck up in awesome brands, but then again I wear them soooo maybe I do look stuck up. I just don't like to wear stuff everyone has.
I think men look sexy in Hollister! When I met my boyfriend he only ever wore name brand so I've never judged a person by what they are wearing. People can wear "preppy clothing" and be the complete opposite of that. I think it mainly depends on what attitude you have while wearing those cloths.
I honestly do judge guys for wearing brand name clothing and for caring about what brand they wear. I'm not even like that. I like to see men in off brand clothing. It tells me they care about important things.
I don't like preppy clothing because it makes someone look like a douche...from my viewpoint... Also, hot topic (I don't mean gothic or metal look, but that cheap hot topic look) is just so lame and a bit sad...
I know a lot of college guys where ralph lauren cause they feel they're too old for hollister, so I guess maybe college girls are accustomed to seeing hollister and AE as a turnoff? Also i see knockoff brands as unattractive, like cheap forms of under Armour or champion shoes or sketchers shoes and DC shoes are incredibly unattractive
I don't even know any of the brands you named. Haha.
But no, brands don't matter to me. What matters is that the clothes look nice in shape, material, color, imprint, etc., regardless of what brand it is. It's just a name anyways. Some brands aren't even of better quality than no-name clothes.
I'm a discount store shopper, so I don't care a lot about brands. I just like it when the clothes look good on a person, are made of good quality materials and just don't have this cheap vibe that some do.
It depends on the age I believe. If they are over the years of 20 then I don't think they should wear any name brands from your local mall. And I don't think name brands define who you are. Wear what you want and what your comfortable in!
I'm not really into pretty boys. I don't mind if someone has a shirt or two from some preppy store, but you can just usually tell when someone is a tool bag. Maybe I jump to conclusions but typically if you're all decked out in Abercrombie & Fitch, American Eagle, Old Navy or Gap, no thanks!
I find myself drawn to dark colours, modesty, comfort, and sometimes quirkiness. And while I can't say that I am repulsed by any specific brand, would rather not be able to know who designed your outfit from a mile away; anything flashy, bright, tight, or revealing is a definite no-no.
I used to work at Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister 8 or 9 years ago. Back then, it was THE thing to wear, at least among people of similar style. It definitely had a perception to it. I guess I was pigeonholed because of my "look" or whatever. Actually, I was "recruited" to work at those stores based on my "look", so I don't know if it's me or the clothes or what, haha. Basically they just needed blond dudes for the surfer vibe they were desperately trying to create at Hollister in landlocked western Massachusetts, hahaha. But my clothing style is fairly preppy, but often with some urban flavor to it, which is more my personality type. But people would be taken aback that I dressed that way but was from the city and was a big hip hop head and not the usual suburban rich kid that listens to Jack Johnson. I definitely had girls make comments about " oh, so you're one of these typical abercrombie frat bro types", etc.
I like this question because I know that brands do effect me but I can't consciously recall which do and do not; it's less of a functional thought and more of an automatic judgment. It's sort of like when I see a college age kid who has a BMW and I react to them differently but I don't actually formulate a conscious or even complimentary attempt at discerning their nature or the nature of the acquisition of the object.
What I meant: "Yeah, but I don't know how it works within me."
If she's wearing Lou Buton or whatever its called, Gucci, or Abercrombie $ fitch, I'm staying away. O and Victoria secret. It could mean she's high maintenance and I wouldn't be down to spend $100 on a purse for her even if I were a millionaire, cause that's just stupid.
