What are you really wearing?

post #1 of 173
Thread Starter 
The collectors thread made me take a look at my wardrobe. I counted every designer I had at least three garments from (didn't count socks, ties or whatever and might have missed a few).

The portrait I got was surprising, as I realized I only owned 1-2 pieces from few brands I really like (CdG, Junya, YSL, Balenciaga, Carpe Diem, Helmut Lang) and had like three D&G pieces, among other surprises. My wardrobe might be more diverse in term of brands than some (for example I own at most two pairs of shoes from the same maker) but it is still enlightening.


So the list:
Adidas (like their trainers)
Ann Demeulemeester
APC
Carol Christian Poell
Cloak
Dolce&Gabbana (hahaha)
Engineered Garment
Lad Musician
Lanvin
Martin Margiela
Rick Owens
Sutor Mantellassi (this was surprising)
Thom Browne
Uniqlo (all those white tees)

Anyone else care to try?

I think the only brand I have more than 3 things from is Banana Republic because of their basic fitted tees. My favorite items tend to be from more expensive brands and I simply can't afford to many nice things as a student.

I think the only streetwear brands where I own three or more pieces are:

Trovata
Penguin
Ben Sherman
Modern Amusement
Marc Jacobs
Paul Frank

If money were not an issue, then the list above would probably be completely different, but hey, I'm a cheapskate. Most of the above brands are relatively inexpensive to begin with, and I usually buy them on discount.

No need to be streetwear brands. Just don't count your ties and cufflinks.
