    Alright maybe not everything, but most things have been called chavvy on here. What annoys me is when people make it seem like a brand used to be good then became chavvy because "chavs" started wearing it. WTF?? Its still the same brand!

    Sorry had to get this off my chest. I dont know why people on here have the "I saw chavs wearing it so I no longer want to wear my hollister hoodie, superdry shirt, chinos, vans etc..." mentality.

    There's always going to be one person who has a negative view of something - or in this case, call something chavvy ...
    You can't please everyone ...

    IMO 'chav clothing' is considered to be one of two things:

    1. Clothing by brands which put massive labels over all of their clothing. Chav's always seem to be drawn to these types of clothes for some reason. Superdry and Hollister are prime examples of brands that produce this type of clothing so much of their range can be seen as chavvy.

    2. 'Trend whore' clothing. Chav's are well known for all wanting to all look the same and shops like Topman and Burton aid them in choosing the latest 'chav whored' fashion trend by mass producing certain styles of clothing. Recent examples of this include mustard colour, 'drop crotch' and 'twisted' chinos.


    So personally I think there's logic behind why certain types of clothing becomes chavvy and and you can avoid buying chavvy clothing by only purchasing 'classic' items of clothing, and avoiding ones that follow ridiculous trends set by Topman/Burton/etc.

    You're missing the point. There is no such thing as a non-chavvy brand. All brands are chavvy by definition, because only chavs care about brands. Non-chavs aren't even aware of the brand of the clothes they're wearing, because they are interested in buying clothes with style and quality, not trying to impress their chav mates with how much money they have.

    Personally, I thought Topman and Burton are no where near chav shops.

    Damn them chavs adopting good things and making them look common.

    That's the real issue tbh. Hipsters are another example, some people don't want a style to become common or synonymous with anything.

    I wear Docs and band hoodies and wear a lot of black to work as it's smart and easy to work with and don't like slipping over, wet feet or towering in heels. I get called Goth all the time and I'm definitely not a Goth.

    I do like the 'Goth chocolate' my colleagues buy to mock me though- 70% DARK choc kit kats.

    You'd think they'd be priced out but chavs do shop in Burton, Blue Inc and the obvious JJB/JD crap.

    Topman is still a bit skinny fit for them-well, apart from the chinos-maybe.

    It's not just TSR. I was wearing Vans, and a t-shirt saying, "I'm not a chav" the other day, but still someone came up to me and said I was a disgusting chav. I almost got out of his car and dropped his car stereo in surprise.

    I know! Old man trousers and fake band tees. :rofl:

    If only something really camp became trendy enough for them. Like skirts for blokes or something..chavs are rubbish they just follow trends blindly and ruin our perception of it.

    You can't beat the sight of someone that clearly couldn't even name one of the Ramones or The Beatles. It makes me laugh

    There should be a general rule of "If you can't name them or their songs, you can't wear the tee"

    or is that a bit demanding

    also Pink Floyd, there's always a Pink Floyd!

    also: I actually quite like Hollister. They do nice vest tops and summer clothes, plus it is pretty much all good quality stuff. I don't like their hoodies or tops with "Hollister" sprawled across them though

    Good point

    There is that kinda thing with every brand though, often the nice stuff is the pretty stuff that is really understated

    I know mustard is a bit samey considering how much it is used by Topman and Burton etc.

    But is it acceptable to wear it with the same colour roll enck?
