"I am a scally man do you know what I mean? I get my clothes down all sports man, init."

"Kev, you goin' down the market street on sat so we can go and f*cking beg some money of punters so we can by some new nike air?"

"init man, yo star, have you got any change man" - person in quesiton if kitted out with designer gear.

Me personaly I hate brands for the reasons outlined above. Personaly I would rather wear Pirmark than a £100 nike top.
i sort of agree, the only time sportswear should be seen on the streets is if the wearer's seriously sweaty and training for the london marathon.

I'd probably pay £10 maximum more for a pair of jeans with a better designer label, probably because it gives me a feeling that it will be of better quality. But £100? You could get 5 good jeans for that price. No-one will see the label anyways.

You could just go to Primark, buy a £5 pair of jeans, nick a Levi label from another shop and stitch it on.

That is a good point you raised there (although unintentionally I presume) as many would say that the privileges that the inprisoned recieve are often better than if they had to live independantly.

At the moment I have minor designer labels: FCUK, Animal, Ben Sherman etc, but I'd say they were more brands than designer. The only thing i tend to spend more money on is designer make up like dior and clinique and MAC, but that's because it's better quality.

I'd be willing to spend £100 on jeans only when I'm so rich that a pair of £100 jeans then is equivalent to me buying a pair of topshop jeans now.

I'd agree that these are more brands than designer. I spent £130 on a pair of diesel jeans the other day but I still think of diesel as being more of a brand even though it is quite expensive. Sometimes designer clothes can be better materials/better made but I admit this is quite rare. Im not minted but I don't mind spending the money if it's somthing I like. I wouldn't go stupid though I wouldn't spend £200 on a pair of jeans unless I was minted. I think £150 is absolute tops for jeans.

I can't really comment on make up as im male and don't wear it but i'll spend about £40 a bottle of cologne because it's much nicer than cheapy stuff. I also don't mind spending it on accesories like I have a Gucci wallet which cost me about £120 but u only need one wallet and it is actually really good quality leather.

Each to their own though, I don't have a problem with people wearing primark clothes, if there happy wearing it then I can see the sense.

Well, say if i was was hiring someone I'd much rather take someone on if they were in a Armani suit than a pri-mark one.

Besides, it may be better material and much better tailored! You can just look classier in say a little gucci black num,ber than a cheap copy of the market, if you see my point.

Should we be paying £100+ for a pair of jeans just because it has a name on it?

Is the difference in quality sufficient to justify the price?

Are there exceptions such as well-made suits or dresses?

Any thoughts welcome
definatly not

hmmm... right, so you'd rather employ a nice-but-dim half-wit wearing an armani suit than someone who'd spent all their cash struggling to get through uni, received excellent qualifications, but could only afford a pri-mark suit. Good business sense... you'll go far.

I usually don't pay all that much for clothes except my suit which is special.
I do also usually pay quite a lot for my trainers but i do think there is a huge quality difference.
