Should I lie about my clothing?

It happens all the time. people tell me nice jacket where did you get it. So I say Versace, and they're like ooohh and there's an awkward silence. Or nice shades how much were they. If I'm honest it becomes awkward. is it OK to just lie and say its gap or something

  • If it makes you uncomfortable, and you do not want to lie, then you need to come up with something that is not a lie & that makes you comfortable. Correct?

    How about saying, I shop so many places, "It could be anywhere." About price, "Do you really expect me to remember?" Then chuckle, and move on. This will work mainly because you're a guy & most guys do not pay attention to this stuff. NOW, these are not lies, so you could honestly say them.

    Remember, just because someone asks you things, does not mean that you must give them the answer. Esp. about money issues, case in point, "How much do you make?" You should not be answering that to everyone who asks, right? You'd probably say, "Enough for now," and leave it at that.

    Hope this helps.

  • Who cares! Just tell them the truth. If its affordable clothing, then it makes you're a smart shopper and get your moneys worth.

    • Its affordable for me not others

    • Oh, so its expensive. Wow.

      Just tell them you don't remember.

  • hmm just be honest. it might b uncomfortable in the manner in which you say it. if you say it in away that you know your clothes are expensive and you want to make sure everyone knows its gonna be uncomfortable but if your honest and just b normal about it...its whatever.

    one of my good friends is from the arab gulf and he dresses in really expensive clothing and always gets compliments but he's always flattered when people compliment him and is super casual about where he gets his clothes. nothing to be uncomfortable about.

    its usually how you come off.

  • It would seem the fact that you feel uncomfortable with your own truthful answer may be an indication that you don't like the items as much as you think you do. Why not just shop at Gap? The extra money could go somewhere else, like a sandwich for a homeless person or persons... Just a thought...

    • Its my dads money and he already gives 20 percent of his income to charity

  • Don't matter. If your uncomfortable, just lie cause it's not serious in this situation. Say it's from the liquidation of Versace? Anyway, the fact that they get dumb founded by your answer is more amusing than awkward.

    Alternatively just find something to follow it with like some detail about it "I chose it because of this..." Flows out better into another conversation.

  • No, don't say that, lol. If you don't really want them to know where you got it from, then just tell them you can't remember, because what if they find out that that's not where you got it? What will you say then?

  • If you lie, you suggest that the elegance they see is only due to your beauty. Is that OK?
