Quoting ArmitageShanks (Reply 1): I've always found Old Navy clothes fit me better than most brands. I like their simple styling and cheap pricing as well so its win win.
Old Navy for me. Even though I live in Europe, almost 100% of my clothing is brought back from Old Navy in the US. For work (I'm a high school teacher) I wear graphic T-shirts with an unbuttoned shirt over them, long or short shirt sleeves according to the season, and mostly black khakis. So I have about 60+ T-shirts and 20 shirts to keep coming up with new combinations (the students would notice it if I came to school with the same clothes every other day) and the place where I find exactly what I want is Old Navy. Their prices are great and the quality is decent.

My lucky brand of clothing is Rodd & Gunn, they're usually out of my price range though. I had a favourite pair of socks from them that I unfortunately left behind once as I was hurried out of a room before a boyfriend arrived after I got a little too lucky. Damn irony.

My only "lucky brand" is Aeropostale, for the simple fact that I cannot find another brand that makes jeans that fit me. I'm not abnormally shaped or anything, but I've never been able to buy jeans that fit me comfortable anywhere but Aeropostale. I don't even buy anything else there...just the jeans.
For everything else I have a pretty diverse range of brands. Lately I've really been going for Frank & Oak though.

American Eagle jeans. The only ones I buy. I love the way they fit. No tears though. I get enough of those at work. For shirts it's anything I find funny. I have a ton of t-shirts. I guess it's the one thing I care about when it comes to "fashion."

For me is a sort of mix & match
I have tons of shirts from a local Spanish enterprise called Kukuxumusu, they make some hilarious T-shirts and I have quite a collection going on.
For shirts, I mostly buy them at H&M, Primark, or C&A, for pants... C&A since they stock my size, I like Docker´s but they are very expensive over here so I tend to stock on them when I go to the US (not been since 2009 tho) I also like Aeropostale for T-shirts and since they opened shops in Singapore, I plan on stocking up when I go there soon.

Quoting 1337Delta764 (Thread starter): My lucky brand of clothing seems to be Izod. Pink is my signature color, and Izod always seems to have an extensive selection of pink shirts.
I was gonna say Izod too, but not for the pink. But they do make a pretty nice selection of comfortable, casual, inexpensive and well made clothes. I still have several pairs of their chino shorts that I bought 7-8 years ago that are still in good shape (fairly faded though).
I did have an Eddie Bauer knit, zippered pull-over that I found at an outlet store in Glenns Falls, NY for $15 back in 06 I think. Loved that thing, then I left it at my GF cousin's house when I was visiting by accident. I was never able to find one like it again in any Eddie Bauer retail store I went to.
I also have a blue fleece zippered pull-over from Old Navy that is 10 years old, still in great shape. Though I would always rotate through my pull-overs in the winter time -- btwn the Old Navy one, my now long lost Eddie Bauer one, and a few hoodies I have.

Quoting 1337Delta764 (Thread starter): If you could consider one brand of clothing to be "lucky", what brand would it be? By "lucky", I mean by always having what you want.
Tommy Hilfiger would be my lucky brand. Each time I enter their shop for an item, I find what I want. 90% of my shirts are from them. 100% of my pullovers are from them. 50% of my polos are from them (the other 50% are Lacostes). Even some of my socks are from them. Sometimes, it happens that I'm fully dressed in Tommy Hilfiger, except for my pair of shoes.
Now that I think of it, this is a bit crazy...

Suits: Armani and Hugo Boss.
Ties: Hermes, Ferragamo and Bvlgari.
Dress shirts: Charles Tyrwhitt. They are incredibly cheap, yet of high quality and with very nice designs. CT offers a variety of fits depending on body size. You can also have your initials embroidered on the cuff for a few extra bucks, and they deliver by mail.
Casual: Lacoste and Banana Republic mostly. J. Crew is not bad either; I like it. Buffalo Jeans are great and in terms of denim (jeans), they offer the best value for the money I think.
T-shirts: Tankfarm Clothing without a doubt!
Socks: Paul Smith.
Shoes: Brooks Brothers for formal, Geox for smart casual, Camper for weekends.
