Only a small fraction of members here actually go whole hog bespoke, but even then, I doubt there is anyone here that bespokes absolutely everything in their wardrobe including belts, shoes, shirts, ties etc etc...
Anti brand in my book does not mean "hate all brands", it simply is a dissaproval of "liking something because it is a brand and for no other reason". I.e. if Gucci made a shirt dyed with human shit and had a sweetcorn pattern throughout, I guarantee someone would love this shirt because it is "Gucci".
Anyway, PatrickBooth echoes the general consensus behind the brand buying - it is about the clothes, not the brands.

I agree, but keeping an open mind does not hurt. If people say dont buy Versace for some lame reason, then tell em to kiss your hairy butt. But be open to other alternatives, an item does not need a Versace tag (or whatever other name brand tag) to be good. Good is good regardless.
