What Is Your "lucky" Brand Of Clothing?

Wed Jul 10, 2013 2:13 am

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.

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'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.

By that criteria, my lucky brand is generally whatever is cheapest. My girlfriend is more into fashion, though, so I haven't really bought my own clothes in awhile now.....not that I'm complaining.

I would say that Aeropostale and Hollister. Each time I get in one of those stores, I buy something. I really like the fit.

Plain dark t-shirts and jeans or shorts. Let's just say fashion is #600 on my list of caring

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."

You're not the only one. I have a good amount of clothing from them.

I also find Kenneth Cole to work well for me (mostly suits)

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.

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.

The Gap family (Old Navy, Gap, and Banana Republic) generally go over well with me. I basically exclusively wear collared shirts, and I've always found good ones (and good prices) there.

Polo styles shirts, not necessarily Polo the brand.
Levis jeans, the loose fit, it´s the only one that can pass through my thighs
For formal or semi formal, Hugo Boss. I love that brand.

Tommy Hilfiger would be my lucky brand.

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...

The North Face. They opened up a store here a while ago and whenever I am there, I usually find something I like for a great price. Amazing value for money in opinion.

When I'm in the US I usually stop by American Eagle Outfitters.

H. Freeman & Sons (Not Hickey Freeman) has always been at the top of my list, with Loro Piana for fabrics.

Best part of the Freeman Suits & Sport Coats were their light coats, natural shoulders. and exceptional fit. They also have an excellent made-to-measure offering,

Corbin Ltd came in second, but I believe that they went under when the founder died/retired. The off-spring were not able to deliver.

But that was then and this is now so all I need is a blazer.

For shirts, the best I have were picked up in Fiji. Bula!

Not expensive, but a super cotton. Sadly they are covered in traditional Fiji designs so have limited use in public when the wife is with me.

- Mountain Equipment Co-op for Active wear.
- Tilley Endurables for travel stuff and "dressy" casual
- Supplied uniform for my work clothes.

Depends.

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!

Undies: CK.

Socks: Paul Smith.

Shoes: Brooks Brothers for formal, Geox for smart casual, Camper for weekends.

Lucky clothing..

It would have to be my bespoke suit from a London tailors near the Savoy Hotel, along with my Savoy tailors guild bespoke shirt.

Always wear it to meet new clients, and it seems to do the trick.


Casual wise.

Haggar. Nearly all of my pants, nearly all of my long sleeve button-down shirts and a fair chunk of my short sleeve shirts are from them (Well from one of their outlet stores.). The pants I work in last me several years before I have to replace them, and they usually cost no more than $20-25 a pair. Very rarely had any issues with fit nor are there discrepancies in sizes (Which is something that some companies have issues with these days.). You get two pairs of pants that are labeled the same size, they will both be pretty close in fit. Some companies are so bad about sizing that an XL is other companies' XXL or even L.

If it has the Nike swoosh on it, I'm all over it.

I basically live in a pair of Nike athletic shorts around the home/apartment. I really need to get a new pair... the two I have are quite old and the older pair needs to be tied to be kept up (somehow the elasticity of the band vanished a couple years ago...).

Not really my lucky brand, but my favourite is Aeropostle. I like their designs/styles and the brands writing always looks nice IMHO. I also like the 'warm' feeling the clothes have. Being a New Zealander, we don't have Aeropostle here, but we can purchase online. Everytime I'm in the USA I always visit a store and purchase something.

My Nieces (and their parents) in the USA really like one of our children's clothing brands here in New Zealand. Every Christmas, birthday and each time I visit I always purchase the girls some Pumpkin Patch clothing.

The only regular clothing items that fall in this category for me, are my jeans. Levi 501s only, probably for the last 20 years or more.

When I was in high school and living at home (not paying rent), I spent tons of money on labels, etc.

Abercrombie & Fitch
Diesel
Express
Lacoste

Now that I'm off at college, supporting myself 100% and trying to make ends meet, my fashion ideals are not as expensive and picky as they used to be.

Now I love walking into Rue 21, American Eagle, and Express and shopping off the clearance racks exclusively. Also I've had really good luck with the Target Men's department, and also Arizona brand from JCPenney. I also find myself wearing purple Kansas State University apparel almost everyday at some point. I always have good luck when I'm wearing my school's clothing!! EAT'EM UP EAT'EM UP KSU!!!
