I bought a $300 snowmobiling jacket and didn't pay for the $150 pair of snowpants I put on the counter next to it because the teller thought they were an ensemble.


...


Yup. I'm that hardcore mother****ers.

All of you get one, that is one (1) warning each, for not contributing to the discussion.

Except for my boy Brandon.


For another thing I shall tell about you all, I don't think Chipotle has good food! Especially to Moe's. For when it comes to shitty entry level pricing Mexican food, Moes has steak HOMEwreckers, and Chipotle has Toilet supreme.

Now keep it on topic guys...

While I was on vacation in Croatia, I bought some "real" Ray-Ban Aviators for just 100 Kuna.
That's ~ €15 (~$20)

Although they are most definitely fake, whoever made them really put a lot of work into their production as it's almost impossible to tell the difference to real ones.

All true, but Chipotle has the added benefit that most Mexican fast food places miss out on and that's being able to serve alcoholic beverages

The best deal I ever had was the day I decided not to fall for all that 'name brand' bullshit.

This means I can buy a pair of shoes for £5 and can carry things in the bags that I get free with my groceries without feeling bad about it.

This basically. It doesn't apply to everything though.

Word. I pretty much gave up on all the designer crap.

Now I shop at places like Rue 21, JC Penny, Buckle, etc., buy what I think looks good and have that shit tailored.

I've recently noticed a trend where more and more people are actualy prefering unbranded clothes. Could this be the beginnings of a fashion backlash?

for TS's creativity.

Best deal I've gotten is probably a pair of Steve Madden pumps for like $30.

That might just be the "hipster" thing that's been going on. That, and a few pop icons opting for secondhand clothing at times.

No, I think this is something different, rather than the hipster thing with people wanting second-hand stuff, like Time magazine's famous 2009 article that described hipsters as; "take your grandmother's sweater and Bob Dylan's Wayfarers, add jean shorts, Converse All-Stars and a can of Pabst and bam — hipster."... this trend is for new clothes that literaly have no branding whatsoever anywhere on the garment. As if the anonimity of it's maker is somehow becoming a fashion statement.

Oh yeah, I know what you're talking about now. Like, people are wearing more tees without Abercrombie written across them in plain jane font.

I hope that's catching on anyway.

It's something I've noticed in my own kids and their friends mainly, one of which used to be a real sucker for brand names. (my other kid couldn't give two shits about fashion) Now he's insisting that his clothing has no branding whatsoever, he even cuts the labels out of his t-shirts.

I wonder if it's a protest thing?

Me too, it's saving me a small fortune.

There goes my idea of using a misleading title purposely.

I never liked the idea of paying for something, and still being a walking billboard because of it. That and the money.

Sadly the cheaper brands are often of poor quality, ill fitting and cheap materials. So my clothing choices are somewhere in the middle.

Edit: My best deal was buying 15 packs of strings for €30 from a former shopkeeper. I had a job at a bicycle shop settled in the space where his shop used to be and he still lived upstairs.

I dunno, a Jack Wills shop has just opened in Canterbury, now everyone is creaming over their overpriced, designer crap.

These adbots are getting smarter. Joining years in advance, setting up an avatar and a fake persona. Not advertising anything. Feigning interest in us.

Oh my god, the adbots are becoming Pitmonkeys.

I bought 5 pairs of skinny jeans (red, gray, purple, blue, and green) for $10.
I thought they made a mistake on the sign but they didn't so obviously I bought them. Best deal ever.

Yeah, I'm the same.
But take t-shirts for example, even good quality ones are still mass produced so wouldn't cost the manufacturer any more that £1 per shirt, once a screen print (probably working out at just pennies per print) and a label (again, pennies per label) are added to that shirt, the price of even a decent middle priced t-shirt to the public suddenly becomes astonomical when compared to the manufacturing costs.

I have a bunch of shirts from H&M (they sell fairly hipster stuff anyway) that have no indication of any sort of brand on the exterior and they cost me about $7 each.

I don't mind buying branded clothes right now because I have nothing else to spend my money on really. I'm still pretty stingy about it, however.

It's even easier for the big companies since the more you produce, the cheaper each individual unit is.
