Well I think the issue behind why you asked this question is true. We all make judgments about others when we first SEE them. No one is exempt from that. So when people see what you're wearing, they will sometimes think that you are shallow or materialistic because you have an expensive or mainstream taste in clothes. They may also think of you as snotty or bitchy because that is all they've ever seen with people who wear Hollister (the bitchy girls in high school). You can get to know them and prove them wrong or not worry about what they're thinking. But like I said, either way they're thinking something about you. Some care, some don't.
if it was a girl I was just going to be hooking up with I wouldn't care but if it was a girl I was interested in dating I would be kinda hesitant because it would make her seem materialistic and high maintenance. while she may be really cool, unfortunately everyone is a bit prejudice at first.
They don't really sell it in the uk, apparently they have a shop in london but I duno if they have anymore elsewhere. So I wouldn't think you were fake.
But I buy stuff I like the look, most the time it comes from the same brand cos they do that style, I don't buy it cos of the label. So aslong as your not buying it for the label like you said then I don't care.
they all look the same and all the shirts are plain...they just come in different colors...lol kind of true...i use to shop there but now everyone in cali is wearing their stuff...so no I don't shop there anymore.
