    It's always been ridiculously tacky and overpriced.

    The worst thing about them is the fact that they try to appear Japanese. Don't lie, guys. Nobody likes a liar.

    This.

    I don't think anyone over the age of 15 should be seen in it.

    I have lots of nice jumpers and jackets from there, but I don't have anything with a giant motif on it. I dislike being a walking advert.

    I was thinking of getting the lumberjack hoody they look sick like some of the jackets/coats but are expensive just like the rest of the items. Might get one next week though still thinking of the colour.

    No, it's not that good. Fair enough, it's fairly good quality, but it's still ridiculously overpriced for what you get. A plain hoodie with the (frankly ugly) logo on it is £50, a t-shirt - £30. That's a lot for a plain hoodie or t-shirt. The coats start getting into the £150 - £200 mark and for what, a boring coat with the logo emblazoned on it 4 or 5 times? It's ridiculous. The lumberjack/flannel shirts are nice and the jeans are alright... (still overpriced though) but the shop really doesn't offer a lot more than what is shamefully just a statement of wealth. The clothes aren't particularly interesting in design.

    I know exactly what you mean because I've seen it first hand. I must have seen, what, 20 people at my school with the plain hoodies (be them in different colours), countless t-shirts, about 10 - 15 guys have the Superdry bags, and I kid you not there are at least 5 people with the exact same coat. There are a group of guys who only wear Superdry stuff.

    It really is ridiculous, at least where I'm from.

    I have ONE Superdry hoodie which i bought because:
    a) It was £25 (brand new)
    b) It was warm.

    I mostly wear it at home, and when it gets reeeeally cold I'll wear it outside underneath my coat.

    Yes, their hoodies are common, and perhaps slightly obnoxious but originality isn't gonna keep me warm in minus temperatures. So quite frankly, I don't give a sh!t.

    I saw this guy today and he was wearing this really superdry and it looked so good on him. It was just slightly different than the 'conventional' coats and it was just really well made.

    And I enjoy my superdry earmuffs. They're fuzzy and keep my ears warm

    Honestly, they're probably the one thing I would consider buying from the store. Granted, £65 is a little steep, but they are really nice hoodies... It's you're choice at the end of the day, clothes are clothes.

    The store in general is IMO very overpriced and overrated, especially the people who just wear it for the label, but I do quite like those particular items.

    The Japanese logo is ridiculous: http://hanzismatter.blogspot.com/200...dry-co-uk.html
    I completely agree. I understood the 'shinasai' bit, and looked up the kanji. I lol'd.

    I used to like it but it's far too common now, although some of the subtly-branded stuff is nice.
    Agreed. I still wear superdry though.

    I work for Superdry. I don't wear the clothes outside of work because it is not my personal style. But the fabric quality is good and the garment design is good + unique. It's not a brand which copies current trends it has its own 'americana style with pseudo japanese text'. It tries to be different and offers a specific style. It's not like Top man, Burtons, New look, H and M or Urban outfitters which sell seasonal trend garments. It produces clothing that competes directly with Abercrombie and fitch, Jack wills and A&F Hollister - these brands charge more money than superdry for items like joggers/ hoodies... It's all got to do with marketing, A&F/JW are associated with people who are well off and are specificly targeted to that market... therefore everyone percieves that the clothes should be worth more...which infact probably cost the same to make.

    ...But it sucks arse....


    At the end of the day, ll you are doing is turning yourself into a human billboard. If they really made their clothes for the quality/warmth, then they wouldnt need to emblazon it with a massive "SUPERDRY logo.
