    And don't get me started on those OSAKA 86/88/whatever random number t-shirts that many a person currently wears... :rolleyes:
    I think those are made by Superdry.

    A quick google check reveals that you are indeed correct. :cool:

    Pity that they couldn't come up with a more inventive design. I might try my hand as a fashion designer and simply place a random word with a huge number on a t-shirt - there seems to be a market for it afterall...

    I thought that it would be negligent of me not to get involved in this brawl so I'd like to put forward some defences for some brands whose names have been sullied by those who don't know what they're talking about:

    Dolce & Gabanna: if you call this "chavvy" then you don't have a clue about fashion I'm afraid. This fashion house is one of the most important and highly recognised in the world, over twenty years it has grown and grown and has produced iconic pieces of classic tailoring and a solid range of wearable casual wear. Some items in the less exclusive D&G range are often more simple and cheaper, these items are mostly designed by junior designers within the company and so shouldn't be compared on the same par to the entire Dolce & Gabanna range.

    Paul Smith: Once again I have no idea why this is being called common!? Shirts begin at around £80 , beautiful wool suits and overcoats from £350. Paul Smith is more a British institution than a fashion label, he's been inredibly important to the growth of smaller modern British designers and to the country's claim as a whole to be an important fashion-nation. The PS house stripes must surely be as recognisable now as the original Ralph Lauren polo player logo. However, as most other large designers out there, Paul Smith does offer a range of clothes that vary in price and thus exclusivity so as we encountered with Dolce & Gabanna, it would be naive to compare the entire Paul Smith range on the same par.

    Paul Smith's never really done it for me - though he is popular in the City. Although his suits are splendidly well-lined, the colours that he uses for the suits are not as imaginative as they could be. I find Versace and Boateng tend to push the boundaries much further.

    One thing I will say is that you do notice the difference in the quality of material between a designer suit and a "high street" suit.

    With labels in general, some are being tarred at both ends - both by the cheapo mass-produced shirts with labels on them (YSL were doing some in Sports Soccer for £10) and with the more "vulgar" tastes of the super-rich and celebrities - think the women from the Middle East who dress head-to-toe in all black but have CK/D&G plastered all over their veils or the Daniella Westbrook Burberry look.

    Personally I prefer my labels to be on the inside rather than on the outside.

    The store is amazing, the clothes sadly are not all that tbh.
    I just returned a £70 pound shirt from Abercrombie and bought myself a shirt 10x nicer at H&M for £20.



    A&F ridiculously overpriced and it's mainly stuck up people who wear it.
    Love H&M mens section! And I just bothered clicking through the whole of your sig. It took more time than I'd like to consider (:

    Burberry's mens coats are stunning! Not certain about their suits etc though. Also I love Paul Smith. Their t-shirts are absoulutely fantastic, and well worth it if you can get hold of them from a cheaper outlet store!
    No idea why Topman's getting so much hate. Nice hoodies that stay soft after washing, decent shirts. Pricing would be all I dislike about them.

    Yes, I'm a girl, but I'm...er...channelling a guy for the sake of this topic?
    Nah, I'm just remembering the brands of my boyfriend's clothes that I steal!

    Agreed, some of Burberry's coats are amazing but far too pricey for me.

    Paul Smith shirts are generally pretty nice unless the designs are a bit too crazy.

    In fact most labels come out with some good stuff at least now and then, some Ben Sherman bits are pretty tidy and button down collars are pretty cool. Same goes for Fred Perry.

    Even Ted Baker does some nice stuff when it doesn't have the name plastered all over it.

    Oh and Topman is bang on for plain stuff.

    To be honest I think with all clothes the most important thing is the fit, thats why I tend to stick to certain labels because they fit me well. A lot of my clothes come from All Saints for this reason.

    It's only because the brand itself takes inspiration from Japan, it's only natural that they slap on the mention of cities in Japan. The numbers just make it seem sporty. Don't get me wrong though, I dislike superdry and the Osaka/Kyoto/whatever tees just make me cringe.

    Anyway, I don't really like the chavvy brand like Mckenzie, Gio Goi, Bench, Ecko, Labretta etc.

    TOPMAN, God, every time I go in there with friends I die a little inside.

    I can't think of anything else at the moment, but I've never really liked D&G or Armani either. Mainly because some of the people I see buy into it, pick out the most gaudy, awful pieces to show off that they're wearing designer clothes and are needlessly pretentious because they're wearing designer clothing. It's nothing special if you don't look good.

    How can you call Helly Hansen Chavvy...it's specialist mountain/survival equipment. Expensive clothing aswell. Far from being chavvy.
    It's similar to The North Face in that you see alot of chavvy guys wearing their jackets which pisses me off when i walk past in my TNF jacket also.

    I hate Superdry & Lyle & Scott as everyone and their wife seems to wear it where i live.

    I started to like Junk De Luxe and WESC but not when they have their huge letters across the tops but their jeans are as good as Nudies i think.
