The only reason I have anything by Calvin Klein is just in case I ever find myself transported back in time to 1955 and save my mom from an impending car accident. When I get knocked out, she'll know what my name is...

 

My least favorite brand is Hollister. I don't even know what they make other than pink sweatpants with their logo emblazoned across the back. They've ruined the town of Hollister, CA for me; which is too bad because I like the place...

Facebook (it's everywhere and is -or will be- used by the government/military to take over the world)

True Religion (ugly)

And anything Wal-Mart.

Annoying brands?  Oakley.  Total toolbaggery.

Much better to go bespoke or artisanal brands like Sam Hober where more directly translates into the craftsmanship and goods,

Aldo. I've never understood their popularity. They should write a book on "How to mess up any outfit".

The only shoes worse than Aldo are Mark Nasons. People used to clamor to pay $400 for their shoes.

To be honest though, I don't think the mainline Paul Smith is garbage. Of corse, P.S. Jeans, and those lower tier are horrible, but not the mainline.

 

For Burberry, I've purchased their trench coat (Imported) recently, and felt that the quality is great, but the construction is beyond terrible. Stitches are loose as well as the buttons. It was Burberry London. Maybe the fact that it was not made in UK is the why, but they should pay more attention to their garments, especially at the $1000+ price tag.

Some of their selections are pretty nice. May not last wear and tear but they are good looking.
