Please get over myself?
Yep. No need to sound so bitter.
Read what I wrote again. Â I am DEFENDING the idea of buying cheap(er) clothes, which it seems like no one on this forum has done yet (or at least I haven't found a posting yet, I might have missed it).
There are several posts around on getting great clothes for low cash outlay. See the "What are you wearing today" thread for a few. You will, however, note that most of these involve discounted couture pieces and/or thrift store finds. Besides, as Andrew pointed out, cheap(er) is a continuum. What's cheaper, a Nautica/Polo RL/Tommy tie for US$40 (or whatever) at Macy's, or a Kiton seven-fold tie discounted to the same price at an outlet? Well, the Kiton uses better materials and the quality of its construction is in a whole 'nother league, so most people would say that the outlet Kiton tie is by far a better deal than the high street price Nautica/Polo/Tommy tie.
Why? Â You mean to tell me no one that read it had any comments on Nautica clothing?
Not to speak for anyone else, but I don't have any comments on it, good or bad. Except for their logo'ed stuff, which is as tacky as anyone else's. Sometimes moreso, in cases where the logos are bigger.
that nobody on here ever has many positive comments about anything that is not at least 3 figures for fear of looking unfashionable or too much like the norm or something;
Here are some search terms you can look up that may disspell that feeling: Zara, Sisley, Banana Republic (aka BR), H&M. Also look up thrift and vintage stores for lots of discussion on interesting finds that didn't cost lots of money. None of those marques (particularly H&M) are that expensive, certainly no more so than the big box store "high end" brands like Nautica, Polo RL, or Tommy. But all of them seem to have design staffs (or to be fair, often counterfeiting staffs) that cater more to people who take more interest in what they're wearing rather than people who care more about the logo covering what they're wearing. (OK, Sisley does have lots of annoying logoed t-shirts. I don't like or buy those, either.) Peace, JG
