    Yep
    I'd rather buy real Primark than fake designer :lol:
    Fake primark is actually a bargain though, 50p for a suit and it looks almost identical to the real thing!

    You should be a fashion consultant for TSR.



    I've never seen a chav with a genuine Burberry hat or clothing, I must of missed it. The tartan was a bit horrible though, to be fair.

    Burberry have definitely shaken off that tarnish to their reputation though. Really nice, elegant clothing. (Their new collection is awful though - AW15 was nicer)
    (Original post by SinsNotTragedies)
    Slowly but surely, I feel like Burberry is rising up in the ranks again! The pattern does still evoke nausea, but they're on their way to recovery I feel.
    Epi leather and the leather options in general are quite nice, I agree with the vernis - I haven't seen that worn out much.

    Probably true, but Hermes I feel is the worst - ugly and simple design, huge waiting lists and celebrities owning tens in different colours. I see that their resell price is high though, as you point out. Chanel has a price increase multiple times a year I believe, I feel that helps them retain their inaccessibility. Chanel is the safest bet, I agree.

    The plaid/ tartan caps were/ are a hallmark of chav culture. Obviously fake stuff but nonetheless the association tarnished the brand. Indeed, I agree that Burberry has reclaimed their image over the past few years.

    Tbh I wear very plain clothes, I'm not a fan of logos on clothing. Beyond me why you'd buy fake branded clothing.
    I appreciate you even more. :five:

    I very nearly bought an Antigona once. I was put off how everyone has one and I'm not that keen on the rigid and clunky shape!

    Not sure what's with all the hate on Supreme...

    I do think this collab is quite awful though, except maybe the black Michael backpack.

    Terrible brand that how some manages to pull of the 'exclusivity' thing it does with limited releases. The clothing is harrowing and overpriced. It is the go to brand for people that 'collect' clothing.

    Yeah, it does look and feel a bit boxy - it looks nice but wouldn't be comfortable in use.

    They're worthless - huge and impractical imo, slightly reminiscent of a kids toy

    Not that expensive if you manage to buy retail, and there's a reason it's one of the top streetwear brands. I guess the exclusivity does contribute to it but other brands do that too.

    what makes it a top streetwear brand? What exactly is unique and what makes it worth the money you pay for it? You certainly aren't getting something exclusive/unique, despite their best efforts I see it everywhere. Can the clothing hold on its own if you took the logo away?

    I'm not a fan of streetwear to be honest. I wish brands like Stussy had stuck to their roots of beachwear. (But then brands like Stone Island?! Literally wtf)
