Buy clothes based on their fit and style, not by the brand name

When I was in high school Marithe & Francois Girbaud jeans were the rage. They were equivalent to what True Religion jeans are today.

I wanted a pair bad but couldn’t afford them. I went to a TJ Maxx and found the ugliest pair of Girbaud jeans for only $39.99. The length was too short for me and they were white with purple and blue vertical stripes on them. Liberace wouldn’t have been caught dead wearing them. Hell, even Mystery, the king of peacocking, wouldn’t think about touching them.

I bought them any way and wore them to school.

Needless to say I was ridiculed mercilessly.

I wouldn’t have cared but I knew they were right. I bought the jeans for all the wrong reasons. I wanted to impress others with the brand name. It was no different than buying a Porsche with pink side panels, a green hood and a faulty engine because it is the only one that you could afford. It would make better sense paying less for a red Mustang that ran good.

Now when I shop for clothes I focus on fit and style. I would rather wear a shirt from Wal-Mart that fit and looked good than a Versace shirt that fit and looked bad. Sure, some women will judge you on the brand but they are often the vapid gold diggers that you don’t want to spend your time with.

If you have the money for expensive brand names then go for it. If you don’t, make the best with what you have. I’ve had friends in outfits that cost less than $50 go home with 10’s.

    Massive agreement with you on that one.
    I remember spending quite a bit in clothes for the sake of the brand name. But if there are at least a few rules of style that should not go over looked, it’s:

    -Make sure what you wear actually does resemble some sort of fashion (Easiest way to look that up is with 6 bucks to buy a good fashion magazine.)

    -Make sure what you wear fits.

    -Make sure the style you wear will be a slight representation of the women you want or the man you want to represent.

    As far as brand names go, you don’t NEED them. The last time I wore some good looking clothes that got ME approached by women was literally three days ago. A free pair of jeans. A white dress shirt from Kohl’s. A gray vest from a vintage clothing store. A free tie. Shoes from Payless. Cost to me? 40 bucks.
