Universal Works is pricey by almost any standard. Converse and Vans probably should be classified as "low-quality," and it would be easy to argue that it's never wise to wear low-quality footwear - but footwear isn't technically clothing, so.... To bring up a name that maybe has never been stated on Style Forum: the Macy's brand American Rag. Low quality, but with a look that's more fashionable than typical department store menswear. However, this is not an endorsement.
