    How do you know what top is from Primark, and which from Matalan if you don't frequent those shops?

    You seem to be placing a very small amount of importance on this. It actually affects you much more than you'd think.

    Like I said, people judge you on how you look. They shouldn't, but they do. Making an effort isn't much of an effort when you consider the payoff.
    Why not?

    IMHO, the first impression is the only impression, and I always give people the once-over just to see how what they're wearing is worth. I always used to feel quite threatened when other girls talked to my boyfriend because he's extremely good-looking, but now I find that when I give them a quick glance and see Primark shoes or a Matalan top, and instantly I don't feel as bad lol. OK I know I sound a bit shallow, but do you ever give people the once-over to quickly total up what they're wearing?
    a lot of people must judge based on how much their clothes are worth i have learnt this from experience people who i know are always adding up how much each item i'm wearing costs, I do look at people's clothes but to see if i like something they are wearing and will ask how much it was just out of curiosity and conversation really so not really judging i just really really like clothes and wearing a few grands worth of clothes out helps a little bit with my self confidence in all honesty

    Like others have said It's how you wear it. Even though they are designer, UGG boots KILL any outfit. Sorry...had to get the UGG thing in.

    Generally to see their style rather than the where their clothes came from. These people who follow every single trend always make me think they're really rather fickle. People who wear what they want and look good in it are the people who i think 'yes, you look like you'd be interesting to talk to'. That's on girls though. For guys I find i can't judge like that so well so it goes onto a mixture of what they wear, their hair and generally how they act. Saying that though, the whole tracksuit thing i find is quite easy to judge people on though. If they're obviously not going to or coming back from working out then i generally put them into a lazy/slob catagory.

    Probably not great but frankly, you have to judge people somehow otherwise you'd just have to talk to everyone you met and that's not on!

    Why not?
    Because there may very well be a genuinely great character in a ****** outfit somewhere. Still, I initially judge everyone based upon their appearance, making this slightly hypocritical.

    Agreed. They're terrible terrible things.

    I judge them if they look chavvy. Otherwise couldn't care less.

    N-word as in chavvy/low-class.
    I don't get that, the "N-Word" is commonly substitited for the word used to belittle black people so just say the C or L-C word to avoid confusion next time...

    But Ps: i think you mispoke (and your explanation now is frankly pretty dum) but to be honest, i don't know you so i might have jumped the gun a bit for calling you a racist troll... and for that i'm sorry, was kinda hurt a little :o: I think now looking back, what you said before was honest of how you see things (even though it's hard to hear being half black), if i'm honest your probably not alone and before i go into a whole rant about how conditioning f's people up i'll just shut up =T...

    It's natural to do so ... and I'm just in the middle of judging their clothing when I remember that anyone who did it to me would get the complete wrong impression, so I try to erase my judgements and say hello, talk to them.

    Not really, though if someone is wearing Ugg boots and Jack Wills it tends to negatively affect my opinion of them until I speak to them properly. I wouldn't not talk to someone on that basis, but it does have a subconscious effect.

    I think you are judgmental to the extreme, how can you look at someones clothes to form an accurate impression of them. You will go through life never really knowing anybody with that attitude.

    I agree that it's nice to see someone well dressed, but that doesn't mean a damn thing about how they are as a person.

    No - not at all.
    And yes you do sound shallow, it doesn't show feelings, personality. What people say and do, does.
    And it sounds like the way you judge is all about money, as if some ones lack of money stops them from achieving what you can like getting with your boyfriend. But hey thats just you

    Of course. Why wouldn't you?

    Everyone judges a book by their cover, and first impressions mean everything.
    I dont judge a book by it's cover, I'm not as shallow as you are.

    Nobody say anything about appearing wealthy. I could easily buy an outfit for about £50 and still look good. You sound like you're just making excuses.

    I don't think it sounds shallow at all. Go to your next job interview wearing ripped jeans and a coffee-stained blouse and see how far your personality and feelings get you.

    yes if they're wearing designer or branded clothes I just think what a tosser/chav that is a complete sheep.....that's for women/men and any race.

    apart from branded trainers....that seems the only thing I find acceptable....I think you genuinely kind of do need to pay more for footwear and the branded stuff is better in design and quality.
