    This is simple really; Do you judge people based on the clothing labels they wear?

    This could be anything from:
    • Thinking someone is poor because they don't wear trendy name-brand clothing
    • Judging a person because of what they wear (Goth, Emo, Chav)
    • Thinking someone is rich / posh because they wear all name-brand clothing
    • Avoiding someone because of the way they dress

    Do I judge people on their appearance? Of course - we all do. It helps to categorise people. But I try to do it in general terms only, not individually. Thus, I would not avoid talking to someone because of his or her clothes, no matter what brand they might be. Well, I might be a bit suspicious of a girl running around in a Playboy or Hooters outfit, but whether someone wears specific labels or seemingly unbranded clothes does not make any difference for me.

    I try to find decent clothes that are not branded aggressively (even though they're sometimes more expensive than branded clothes) because I find this kind of overaggressive branding (e.g. oversized letters on shirts or even jeans) a bit disturbing in general.
