Girls who think they know about expensive brands but don't might be excited about those names. Most fashion houses don't make their own clothes, so different lines range from overpriced but very high quality to overpriced garbage. The lowest end "lines" aren't lines at all, they're just licensing deals - emporio armani for example, has nothing to do with armani beyond the fact they pay armani for the rights to put 'armani' on their stuff, basically.
I haven't seen a lot of recent versace stuff, but traditionally that house has a definite style - some women will love it, some will hate it. Boss ... I used to buy more of, but don't now. It fits me better then most off the rack stuff, but its not actually that good value for the quality you get.
I'm assuming you're talking about tailored stuff by them, as opposed to a $5 t-shirt someone wrote 'BOSS' on and charged 50 bucks for.
Dude! don't do this .. guys who are like this in my college get mocked all the time! It's pure gay to wear brands all the time .. seriously! plus that TRUST ME , girls never ever pay attention to such details , except the materialistic ones .. if you wanna get on of those , then wear brand names :)
After Reading all the comments, I have to disagree. Wearing expensive brands does not only attract gold diggers. It shows class and is attractive. As for brand names, I like the ones you listed, try burberry?
APC, Band of Outsiders...I don't know any other men's brands. I just like guys that look classic and minimal but also sort of like lumberjacks.
nope. I don't really pay attention to what brands guys wear.
You're an idiot if you think that BRANDS gonna make you "attract the chicks"
If anything you might magnet gold-diggers but my guess is that it's the last thing you want! Maybe!
And what girls think when they see that? "Someone who can't manage his money!" or worse: "Wannabe-player"
I'm not saying that dressing well is unimportant, it's very important but you gotta find your own style and choose what LOOKS GOOD instead of what costs a lot!
All those expensive brands are just about.. brands! They buy sh*tty, plain-looking clothes from Turkey or China and put on their label and add +200$ min. on the price. It's total ripping-off, and treating their customers like mushrooms - that means keep them in the dark and feed them bullsh*t!
The best clothes are the ones made by respectable brands (such as those in your list), but they don't have the brand logo visible, or if it is, then it is very subtle. People will notice, and as you put it, say "wow", by the way they fit you, and the quality of them. Going by what you have so far, I'd recommend Banana Republic, Armani (any line really, except for the Armani Exchange line), Diesel, and French Connection.
Honestly, girls don't pay attention to brands. But, if you are going to a wedding or formal/classy event, get a nice Hawes & Curtis Fashion Shirt. Especially look at the Limited Editions, classiest thing I have in my closet.
