Hello guys.
Sorry, thats my first post on this forum, maybe down there not so much structure but I was trying to do my best.
As everybody of you know (or dont, and its just my opinion) 80% price of goods is hype, actuality, brand etc, and 20% is materials sweat and tears.
So, I have a two questions.
First, is somebody know, maybe exist some projects (shops/marketplaces) which contains only brands with low brand cost and really good products (mostly it's made in japan I guess?). I mean, where I can go for shop and be sure that there is I can find only good things with good quality for reasonable and rational price. Fuck fast fashion, fuck 10x price for 2 letters on thing (its second question). Only good vision of how things should be doing, to serve as long as it can (HOW?)
Second, what so you think about rich fast fashion? I mean off white, yeezy etc which cost A LOT, but man, how can I know for what I pay for? I mean, that things just buy only hype-people? Or if I dont know the news is the cost of things - is that a robbery?
Yeah, thats looking great, and its something that maybe after some years will be a history, but..
Does my question make any sense?
Maybe can somebody explain me what I did not understand?
Good points of view and links are very appreciated.
Thank you.

Hard to answer the questions as posed. What do you like the look of? What styles or designers are you drawn to? Do you care more about saving money or owning things you love?

I don't think there is any direct connection between these issues.
I like street style and don't like office style. When I was younger - hm, zara etc. Now I prefer some brands that in my mind is much better in quality, more unique, not so popular - for example barbour, gant, japan blue, oni, EG
of course it's hard to dismiss all fast fashion - like new balance which I love.
For sure I care about saving money, but owning things I love does't mean I'm ready to pay month salary for one pants.

Actually, fashion is ten percent luck, twenty percent skill. Fifteen percent concentrated power of will. Five percent pleasure, fifty percent pain. And a hundred percent reason to remember the name

I share the opinion that it's extremely hard to find decent clothing for a decent price. I have been on the lookout for a good menswear shop and came across Carbon2Cobalt. I always read reviews on stuff and shops, and so before ordering from them I made my research on carbon 2 cobalt reviews . I found all the info I need there and decided to purchase from the shop. Have no regrets.
