  • I buy what I can get on clearance. I buy quality - and cheap. No sense in paying OUTRAGEOUS prices for things that are only going to get ruined and or out grown in a matter of weeks.

  • Yes, but not at retail prices. I do so because name brand clothing has resale value.

  • rolling on floorUm No. They are 25 and 21, if they want to buy name brand stuff, they can.... otherwise, it's coming from garage sales!!


    Just kidding. 


    No, I never bought them anything name brand when they were children.  I saved the money from that stuff to send them to school when they were older.   They survived.  No mental health issues, no killing, no guns, nope.. notta...

  • I don't really pay attention so probably not, I just look at the fabric to make sure it's going to last as long as possible.

  • I do when I can, there are name brands that I have learnt are worth paying extra for, I will look for sales and try to buy on sale. Quality is important to me.

  • If it's on sale sure why not. I buy anything I need that I can get at a good price. Do I buy them specifically BECAUSE they are name brand? Hell no!

  • i buy all kinds of brand names. my 4 1/2yr old son loves designs on his clothes, cute cool drawings. But oen brand i always have gotten is like south pole that only has cute drawing on the pockets on down the leg that arent soo bright but decent and cute.
    We only get clothes like that when we get taxes or when his father finally decides to pay child support. otherwise if we run out of clothes we just go to sales at kohls and still get very cute clothes that he ends up liking :)

  • All his clothes are from Old Navy and Target. Almost w/out exception they have lasted as long as he was able to fit into them. Almost every pair of shoes he has ever owned have been Sketchers. The style of them are cute/cool and they always hold up for as long as I need them too.
