What age did your kids start asking for name brand clothes?

Posted by   + Show Post

My DD is 8, will be 9 this summer. This weekend we were at Gander Mountain. There isn't one close to us, we were in a smaller city an hour away. Anyway as we were looking around she mentioned how she wanted some Columbia and North Face clothes. This is the first time she has asked for name brand things(other than Twinkle Toes a couple years ago at age 6) When I asked why, it was because other girls are wearing these brands.

That is true. You can find the Justice "style" at a lot of department stores.

Justice is the brand to wear in our elementary school. My daughters were in 1st grade when they asked me o go shopping there. I wish I never took them there. It is so expensive.

Justice has the ugliest overpriced clothes in my opinion. My 7 year old gets good quality clothes, but that store is ridiculous,lol. you can get the same clothes at Target for half the price.

This is why I shop TjMaxx and Marshall's for name brand stuff. Just bought my middle son a pair of Nike shorts for $6.99. I would pay at least that, if not more at Target. Also got some Under Armour shirts at TJMaxx for $7.99. I do buy my kids name brand clothes, but only when I find the stuff for these prices that I mentioned. Also got 6 pairs of Nike socks for $8 at TJM - again would pay the same if not more at Target.

My kids have never asked for name brand anything my oldest ds is 8 will be 9 soon and the youngest ds and dd will turn 4 next week. But I'm sure that will change soon
