Same reason people here hate on Gucci, D&G and the like... its all about the name, and the fact that it's almost lazy.. the designers have gotten lazy because they can fall back on their already established name and people will still buy their pieces, all because of the name. Other designers actually put inspired work into their garments, and it takes a keen eye to see beyond all the BS of labels and marketing to actually find a cool, quality piece. Same reason people buy Bose, they don't have a fucking clue about speakers and the sound quality they offer, they just hear Bose's name, so they think it's the best.
Honestly, I don't find Gap to have better quality, but then again I don't buy enough Gap or BR to make a solid conclusion. I do understand BR isn't the best quality for the price range and agree that JCrew and Uniqlo are much better.
I also do hate Gucci, Prada, D&G, etc. I don't like the style neither the prices and I don't care about how the quality is if it looks hideous.
I'm just finding it funny that people are beating a dead horse for no reason. Don't like BR? Then ok. Leave it be. It's a company that makes clothes, not some vegetarian interest group that causes controversy.
Just the fact that this topic is already on its 10th page baffles me. Can someone really hate people's differing opinions on a CLOTHING STORE that it has to go on for this length? C'mon.
