I don't buy any of the name -rand clothing because to me it's just as good to buy the non-name-brand stuff. But I know when people see a person in a more expensive pair of clothing or shoes that an impression is given. Yes, sometimes it can even be a negative one.
So do people really get impressed seeing someone wear name-brand clothing? Does the fact these items cost more allowing anyone wearing them to silently say, "Look at me! I can afford the more expensive name brand clothing!" play a part? Would this make a person who has money but still buys the non-name-brand stuff look cheap?

Well I don't think there could be any negative expression other than jealousy of people that do wear brand name clothing.
Here are a few stores I shop at:
* Hollister.. I have about 15 shirts from there.. I just had like 10 thrown away ;/
* Abercrombie & Fitch.. about 10 from there
* BeBe.. 3 or 4 from there
* American Eagle.. around 5 -10 shirts from there.
And I will shop at Kohl's and Macy's .. I don't think those are brand name ;)
But the point is.. if you sit there are get a shower every morning,
wear a nice shirt.. even a polo from Macy's or something, or a
tee will make that look ok. And some jeans.. you already look nice.
So any outfit you get should cost the LEAST of around 20 dollars if
you are shopping at Hollister or something like that.
If you have money, friends and people that care about you will realize it.
if you come to school with the newest iPod, and the iPhone.. or the newest
thing out there... I think that gives away you are rich. But maybe you should
try PacSun if you're a skater kind of guy, or Hollister on any guy looks good,
too. If you are undecided.. go buy one shirt from PacSun and one shirt from
Hollister and wear it. I think you will feel a lot nicer and people will treat you
better, too. ( Which is really sad that people care.. but I'm being honest )
As for getting impressed, DEFINITELY. It's stupid but true..
The average eye anymore looks for name brand. If you have a shirt
from Hollister without that little bird people will wonder where you got
it, even if you got it directly from the store. ( some of their shirts won't
have the bird when you shop there )
When you have a clean face, nice hair, nice clothes and smell good..
it gives you an amazing first impression with anybody!
;) Good Luck!0
