Nowadays, fashion has become the essence of peoples’ lives. Everyone wants to look stylish, dynamic, and desire the latest trending fashion. In order to brew up a distinctive status symbol and adorn themselves with the profusion of high fashion sense, people reckon to pick brands which have spout out an enormous fame.
So here are the 5 brands, for which people are paying more for name than for quality.
Also known as the GAP Inc. is an American retailer which possess five branches, namely GAP, old navy, and the other three being athleta, banana republic, and Piperlime. The brand was established in 1969, and since then it has been focusing on plain and styled clothes, the retro look today is not as popular, despite the brand still receiving a lot of notoriety.
2. Polo Ralph Lauren
Polo is a global multibillion enterprise, which was established by a fashion designer from America, who gave the brand his name RAULPH LAUREN. The brand is famous for it’s high end polo t-shirts, although it also produce shirts, khakis, dress up shirts, and jeans as well. Although it’s widely considered a masterpiece masterpiece, polo t-shirts in the end are just that, which given the hefty price tag is surprising given you’re mostly playing for the logo and not the quality. In recent years, the Ralph Lauren Polo player logo has grown tremendously in size, taking up most of the front of the shirt design, which has come under scrutiny since it’s inception.
A fashion house, based out of ITaly, this brand is known for selling it’s so called premium ranges of clothes under sub branches such as Collezioni, Giorgio, Armani Exchange and Jeans (exchange and jean being different), and Emporio Armani. There is no doubt, that they possess great quality fabric and their clothes are magnificently classic. But with existence of different labels that offers different stages of quality it makes the brand very expensive. Although, people never back down to buy just one piece of Armani, that in price, may be equivalent to a middle class person’s monthly income. We simply wonder if the fabric is worth the price of admission.
4. True Religion
It is a California based brand, which produces premium hand made denim. A True Religion brand jeans can cost you $300 to $550! That is an exorbitant price for a pair of jeans, no matter how you slice it.
This clothing giant which hails from France is known for their designer clothes (polos, shoes). The situation is similar to Ralph Lauren, people want others to know they’re wearing LaCote, but to admit to yourself that you can get the same Polo at H&M wouldn’t make you feel too good, so we tack on a Crocodile logo and bump up the price by 200 bucks.
