Which brand do you find the most annoying? - Page 18

post #256 of 304

I'm not really one for brands, but where I live everyone is wearing Fred Perry at the moment. I used to wear quite a bit FP but now everyone wears it it does my nut in. I hate people thinking I'm fashionable etc.

Howard Stern wears mostly John Varvatos (according to what he says on the air), so I guess that supports your assertion.

I wore Fred Perry before you were born.
In my college days it was the anti- Lacoste

Fortunately the infamous FP laurel leaves logo is a fairly rare sight here, unlike the wretched Lacoste crocodile logo. ffffuuuu.gif

After joining SF, I've seem to adopted the Hugo Boss hate. Ironically, the suit I always get compliments on is my Hugo red label beater suit. It's too small everywhere, but never fails to get all the compliments...especially from chicks. And that's even before I tell 'em that it's a HB suit. 

 

And that's why all my party suits are fashion forward, used and cheap suits. Girls eat up that stuff.

Anything with a huge logo on it. (I can accept sports clothing ala Adidas when used for what it's made for).

CK - I still have some black and beige jeans/canvas from the mid 1990s knocking around. They are still in good nick. I picked up a pair a couple of years ago in a sale - very cheap and they lasted 6 months.

An ex girlfriend bought me a pair of Kenneth Cole chelsea boots (style) about 5 years ago. They are actually OK. I thought they were some other brand at first. I only wear them in winter. I haven't seen anything else of that brand that has done it for me.

Ed Hardy. I was given some underwear a couple of years ago. Luckily no-one can see them. Utter crap. The elastic went on them after about 8 months.

Anyone ever had people come up to you and assume your tailored clothes are 'designer' and when you tell them "no, they're tailored" they can't get their head around it?

Now where I am, "tailored clothes" basically means something like this...

...made by a local artisan tailor.

I find all brands annoying especially since I did a lot of work consulting into consumer goods industry. I find is annoying to know that what I am paying for, only 20% goes to material and craftsmanship. The rest goes to marketing, rent and salesmanship i.e. making me want to buy the product. Much better to go bespoke or artisanal brands like Sam Hober where more directly translates into the craftsmanship and goods,
