right now I'm wearing a pair of off brand yoga pants (came from target or something) and I don't like them nearly as much as my vs yoga pants. they're not as warm or soft or tight. they don't fit me the same way.
same with bobs. they're not as comfortable as toms.
Sometimes it's worth paying extra for higher quality in clothes. Still, you can avoid 'name' brands and still get high quality goods. You just have to sped more time looking for the right combination of price and quality.
But if you buy something really cheap[, chances are it won't fit or drape correctly, or feel as good when you put it on.
So long as the clothing is: comfy, fits well, and is reasonably priced. That's all I care about. I may splurge a bit if I'm looking for real quality clothing, but if we're merely talking about brand vs no brand, I'd be fine with any generic brand.
I don't see why I should pay X more, for brand Y, when Z is nearly the same thing minus a logo or design.
Depends what you count as a brand. I pretty much will buy clothes from anywhere if I like them, vintage shops, topshop, urban outfitters, charity shops, river island, COW, American apparel, h&m, hollister etc. Doesn't matter where it's from as long as I like them.
I don't normally buy brand clothing because it is typically expensive. The thing with off brand though is that you usually get what you pay for in that it isn't the best quality. Things like bobs are meant to imitate the popular brands and though they may be cheaper they aren't always as good. So for me its not the brand that I'm concerned with, it is just the quality of the clothing. If I think a shirt is cute I don't pay too much attention to who it is by.
I really, really, really don't care about the whole brand thing. Most of my clothes are from completely random places, and most don't have a specky brand name attached to them. The only thing that I prefer to get brand name clothing for is bras, because my size is well near impossible to find. Everything else I'm cruisey with :)
