    If I do, it's accidental. I'd never go out of my way to buy it.

    Honestly, I don't care at all who the designer of my clothing is. I think one of the greatest reasons the modern world is so sheep-like and consumerist is because of its bewildering preference of wearing an $80 shirt with a fashionable name tag to the identical $10 shirt at Walmart without the name tag.

    I have some old shirts from Hot Topic that I wear from time to time, but the rest of my clothing is nameless and cheap.

    All of my T-shirts are what ever is on sale at Target My jeans are mostly Levi silver tab. My Polos are Fred Perry. My suits are hand tailored by a local guy and my dress shoes are wood and leather but I have no idea who makes 'em. My sneakers are Target specials. My boots are Dr. Martens or Caterpillar.

    Do sneakers count? That's the only "designer" item of clothing I go out of my way to buy (becuase they're much more comftorable), other cloths I have very few known brands.

    No I wear whatever's cheap.

    Just the other day I bought some new clothes at the local Ross Department store. They sell stuff super cheap. Got 3 great stylish shirts, one pair of jeans and one pair of shorts for about $45. Hell of a deal I must say.

    Maybe, if it's

    1. cheap
    and
    2. looks good

    So I might buy one "accidentally". I don't really care much for brands, just looks. :)

    Why buy something $50 more expensive when the only difference is a label?

    What counts as designer clothing? Do a pair of "Lucky" brand jeans count? At any rate, if I am wearing designer clothing, it's probably by pure accident. I just wear/buy whatever looks good or respectable; I've pretty much grown out of the wearing the same pair of shorts and black t-shirts all through out college phase of my life.

    In your dreams though. ;)

    Generally I do not wear designer clothes and I will not go out of my way to buy something just because it has a fashionable label. I buy clothes for comfort, not fashion.
