Newbie: Brand Hierarchy? - Page 4

post #46 of 64
WHY are people still wearing Gucci, LV? Why didn't Gucci die like it was supposed to in the 90s? Oh yeah Tom Ford saved it. I give Prade credit, they make great shoes but that's about it. Those brands are gimmicks now. Like someone else said, they are worn by people that want to announce to the world that they have money to buy high end clothing. Now if you were serious about wearing high end clothing why would you wear Gucci, LV, or Prada. When you could wear Tom Ford. What is really tragic is when people buy those brands and don't even look good wearing them. If I am going to spend 500 on a shirt, I better look dang good in it.

The thing about these brands is their marketing. They have a good thing going for them. Some, some of their things look ok, but it comes down to the quality not being worth the money. People conscious of that over a label understand this and look elsewhere.

Prada does not make good shoes.

Prada makes some good shoes you go take a look there are some good shoes out there by prada and they own church's which by no means is a bad shoe. theyre just not priced sf-approved that's all jeesh.

True Prada doesn't make good shoes I was just wanted to say something nice about it. I despise Gucci, LV, Prada, Versace, and Fendi. You are right, a lot of people just buy clothing for the brand and not for quality.

The Search function is ideal for self answering questions like this. Why ask others to waste their time answering your question?


You write:

" If you could just give a rundown of your knowledge here that'd be more appreciated."

If it is important to you, use your own time.

What?


LMAO

Hermes Man,

Ignore Sanguis, he refuses to see both the incredible innovation and fails to grasp the enormous stress that belts receive from being cinched around a waist smaller than their engineers have designed them to fit. I believe there's a formula somewhere to figure this load out . . .

Another incredible thing that Hermes does, is pre-drill holes in the belt at evenly spaced distances. This eliminates the need for you to have to drive the prong of the buckle through the leather material each time you put the belt on.

i know many of those people who has the same opinion because they are bitter , well its normal in your old country i guess moving to a "first world country" doesnt change your attitude one bit

typical mentality of people back home when they see a nice "oh must be second hand(used car)" , rented , oh its cheap anyone can own it just need to take 9 years loan to buy it bla bla

always has to say something negative when someone owns something. i guess its the typical ego thing

i hope you are not one those people who took the government loan/scholarship who didt want to return back to the country to honor the contract

Oh and I almost forgot; knowing the crime situation in Malaysia, make sure mum and dad or your security detail are always around you to deter mugging/ robbers... especially with all those "evil eyes" you were talking about focusing on you.....

Hermes man,

I've been reflecting on what I mentioned yesterday and I somehow think I may have been acting rather immaturely.

You and I have two very different perspectives regarding certain brands and I should probably be respecting that.

In any case I do admit it was due to brand envy and a very long day at work. So my apologies for my rather immature remarks. That being said, I hope you would stick around more and provide some input on the quality of some of the other brands that you're a big fan of. It's always good to have some variety around here.

Cheers,
