Well in all honesty i dont shop @ any of those stores if i can help it (although hollister and gap do have rather comfortable jeans ) im more or a khaki or plaid short and polo type of person soo i really prefer saks they have lacoste, Andrew marc, Burbury and Armani Collezioni

But MJ is right...sometimes its just best to go with a teeshirt and jeans..cant dress proper all the time you know

Oh the young and foolish with thier money.

When you get to my age, and you wear things such as those, you are considered a yuppie...
I am NOT a yuppie.
I'm a levi 505 jeans and a fruit of the loom v-neck t-shirt kinda girl, myself.
I can't believe that someone would HONESTLY spend the amount of money those stores ask for a stupid t-shirt that looks just like the one i'm waering. I mean you people spend 20 bucks on one shirt, when i spend 6 bucks on three!
You do the math.
I can paint in them I can garden in them, If it rip it or get paint on it or get it grass stained, it DOESN"T MATTER, i just go buy three more... oh no i'm out six bucks.

I think 20 dollars for a teeshirt is a very reasonable price?? O_o
..but i do see your point i suppose when i start paying for my own things i will lower my fashion tastes...or just not buy near as many new clothes for each season

i honestly don't mind paying 20 bucks for a shirt if i like it.
it'd be great to find a shirt for two dollars, but usually when i see those..
well, their designs don't really captivate me.

and yayy, threadless. that site really robs me out of my money, but i still can't stop. i really wish i found out abt it when it first started though.. there are so many t shirts i'd pay 20+ to have =(

Every once in a while a retired shirt will pop up on ebay.

My point is that you guys are all young.
When it becomes more important to pay your rent, or put gas in your car to get to work, or feed your child then to wear the "name brand" clothing... 20 bucks is three meals for your family, or half a tank of gas..
The only clothes i really buy these days are my professional clothes.
I wear suits. I end up spending 25 - 50 bucks for a pair of slacks and 9-15 bucks for a nice blouse.
But that's because I have to look like I spent money on my clothes to my clients... If my clients knew I hate spending money, and didn't really like the frivolous with thier money people... they would never trust me with thier investments.

So i guess what i'm trying to say is that when you get older the things you spend your money on changes drastically...
Fashion is no longer all that important.
I think it's mainly because your responsibilities change.
You're no longer the high school student who has to look "cool"
You're no longer the college student who's trying to fit in or get the guy/girl
You just don't give a shit. I don't need to impress anyone... why the hell should I spend my money on something like that.
I don't need to have the appearance of what's "in" to attract a mate.
I rely on what's inside to do that. 'cuase hun, he may be cute now, but just wait til that six pack grows into a keg, and his hair slides off his head onto his back...
Appearance, and "being fashionable" kinda goes on the wayside.

Maybe it's the mom in me speaking here.

that makes sense, but i don't really like how you categorize young people
my mom and other parents i know around me happen to spend way more on clothing, bags, jewelry, etc.
we're not rich or anything either. she's cheap when it comes to food for me and her, but she'll literally spend thousands on a purse and wear a ring worth more than her car.
i try harder to save money from my job way more than her. i'm a cheapo like that. but even so, i'd rather spend hard earned money on something i really want every now and then (if i can afford it) then spend it on something i wouldn't mind wearing. (it wouldn't bring any joy? i'd rather just not buy anything if i didn't see something i like)

i hope you got my point. i don't think i really articulated it very well.


lokita - i've searched. they never have the shirts i want in my size. it's a curse =(

o_o; Well, perhaps it's not the same thing in other places, but around here, it's a food store and they have extremely low prices. And locks on their carts, so that when you want to use one, you have to insert a quarter to release the lock.
