    It seems to me that those are supposed to be in the poorest demographic (ethnic inner city minorities) seem to have the most swag. The only whites that seem to revere urban/mall/MTV culture are generally chavs.

    Not just "whites" Besides some of these designer labels are the likes of Henley's, Gio Goi, Bench etc..

    I have nothing against them but tbh as far as brands go, they're quite "cheap" They're overpriced stuff with a high margin because they have a brand name attached. They also tend to have a habit of plastering their name all over the clothes which is just tacky tbh. It doesn't scream "good quality"

    This being said, I don't mind wearing designer IF I like the product. My shoes are made by Ted Baker but I much preferred these over any other shoes. My watch is made by Citizen but them I'm a fan of Citizen and Seiko but I guess these are hardly "designer" - just a tad expensive for the average person

    Often, one company will make their stuff for many others

    I understand that with watches, Armani uses the mechanism from Citizen but the mechanism Citizen use is of a lower quality one that they'd use in their own as Armani want to maximise their margins. The rest of it is often made by Fossil and they make a lot of the "designer" watches. Cheap, rubbish watches which are marketed at a higher cost because it has a brand name. Michael Kors is also guilty here

    In short, designer does not necessarily mean you get good quality stuff but it can do.

    You gotta be joking right? Designer gear is what white people love most.. Essex is full of these people.
