I'm a guy (obviously), but I just wanted to comment on the perceptions of brand name clothing. I like the comment that states that "the brand doesn't matter; style does" because that's really what its all about. However, often times a particular brand may produce a certain style that accentuates a particular person's features/personality. Also, when comparing name brand/more expensive clothing to cheaper clothing, one does have to consider the level of quality. Many 'brand names' truly do produce higher quality products that have a significant effect on the visual appearance of the item, directly reflecting on style. I agree with the 'billboard' thing, as well. I think it is a little ostentatious and shallow. Brands like Armani Exchange for instance are not, from my experience of any significantly higher quality than many shopping mall brands. Its not bad, but not GREAT, like the 'real' Armani brands (Giorgio, Emporio, etc.). Mens' suits are a prime example of 'getting what you pay for', in general. A handmade suit made from Italian silk constructed by a greatly experienced tailor IS going to cost way more than an off the rack midrange suit bought in the mall, but it IS going to look way better and last way longer.
So, I guess what I'm saying is that the idea of someone wearing a brand name isn't important, but that an item being labeled under a brand name often indicates that it is of superior quality and presents greater style. Not all the time, but often.1
