    Wings + Horns is very much overpriced for what it is.

    Worst: Band of Outsiders

    I love their pieces, and they have graet cuts and designs, but their prices are outrageous. I had a local stockist tell me he wouldn't sell their stuff because no one would take it until it was 70% off. Ridiculous. And those buttons. You pay a quarter of a grand for a shirt, you expect the buttons to stay on until you're out of the store.

    Hm, does BoO really have a button problem like that? That reminds me of the only time I tried on a RLPL shirt and the second to top button flew right off into the other side of the fitting room lmao. And the shirt was a little big on me too...

    Worst: H&M (nothing will last for more than a short while)

    I can't say so. I have shirts, tee's and sweaters that I have washed and worn a many many times and they're still in shape and fit great. I own some blazers and jackets for more than 4 years and I wore the shit out of them and don't have any problems qualitywise. Sure they sell items which are totally crap but you can also find some great fitting stuff that last a long time.

    Yes, he wasn't exaggerating by much. RL doesn't have the greatest button stitching either.

    Haha yea my buddy was just handling a BoO shirt on the rack and the button popped off. He looked around nervously and shuffled away. Just look at them: small, thin and flimsy.

    Most clothes are, but I think W+H is worth paying for.

    Ugh. Really makes me wonder why I'm always drooling over these ridiculously expensive shirts... Nice avatar BTW, I'm gonna go listen to NMH right now lol.

    no brand cuts shirts like BOO does (ie, super-slim/cropped) in a simple aesthetic w/ relatively good fabric

    find me one and i will concede that BOO is overpriced
