I'm curious in general but am also wondering if people saw me in a preppy brand if they would think I'm stuck up if that makes sense.

I love brands.
Guys in Lacoste, Ralph Lauren, Armani, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss etc. always catch my eye. I love good quality and often it shows that he has a sense of style... But sometimes a good brand isn't enough if you don't know how to combine it.
With this said I do also enjoy guys in Abercrombie and Fitch and other similar brands as long as they combine it correctly and look good/comfortable in it.
I don't think people look stuck up in awesome brands, but then again I wear them soooo maybe I do look stuck up. I just don't like to wear stuff everyone has.

I used to work at Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister 8 or 9 years ago. Back then, it was THE thing to wear, at least among people of similar style. It definitely had a perception to it. I guess I was pigeonholed because of my "look" or whatever. Actually, I was "recruited" to work at those stores based on my "look", so I don't know if it's me or the clothes or what, haha. Basically they just needed blond dudes for the surfer vibe they were desperately trying to create at Hollister in landlocked western Massachusetts, hahaha. But my clothing style is fairly preppy, but often with some urban flavor to it, which is more my personality type. But people would be taken aback that I dressed that way but was from the city and was a big hip hop head and not the usual suburban rich kid that listens to Jack Johnson. I definitely had girls make comments about " oh, so you're one of these typical abercrombie frat bro types", etc.
