Abercrombie, Aeropostale & Hollister.

I wouldn't say mainstream in general because half of the people I know including myself don't wear those.

Theres nothing wrong with wearing a brand name if you can afford it. Its kinda like how people on here talk **** about apple, but do you listen to a zune? Probably not. You have an iPod. Why? Because its simple to use. Its funny how a lot of people bitch and moan about how Macs cant play games, but Mac is still the highest selling computer out there. Anyways, it has been this way for centuries. If it wasnt Hollister or Apple, it was Joseph Magnin or Macy. Brand names have been making inexpensive things cost more since forever. People will pay more for a name they trust.

I think it's a waste of money to pay for expensive brands, why pay more for the same product?
And I do listen to a Zune.

Well if a product is going to work better than its counterpart and be more durable, i think its worth it. I have several pairs of Dickies jeans which ive used for work for about 3 years. My father, who I work with, does less work than I do, but he refuses to wear anything but wrangler and Levis, he has to buy five or six pair of work pants a year, I have my same 4 pairs that ive used for years, plus those jeans are good enough to work in other settings as well. The point is, I know my jeans are gonna last, he knows his arent, he gets em from walmart for like 10 bucks, I get mine for 28 and i never have to replace them, its cheaper in the long run, ive dropped my ipod a hundred times in 5 years, it has never broken, my friend has gone through six zunes, not to mention 5 belkin MP3 players. Let me ask you something, why did microsoft make a automobile software that works better with iPods than with anything else (sync)?
User avatar #307 to #286 - Noah (10/16/2012) [-]
If a product gives better quality for a higher price it's logical, but most of the popular brands are only popular because people wear them to show off.
I think your friend is just stupid, my Zune has been fine for 4 years.
And it's simple, Microsoft wanted to appeal to the majority by making software for the most popular product.
Popularity =\= Quality though.

People are attracted to Apple products because Jobs focused on simplicity, not utility, I agree that if I am doing work for school or for work, id rather be on a PC, but for stuff like FJ or for DJing id rather be on my Macbook, but yeah i use my steam account on a laptop my friend made for me. I use it to screw with people, its basically a Macbook pro shell which i found gutted and brought to my friend, he uses alienware laptops and he has a lot of old ones, so he dismantled an old one and made it fit in the shell of the Macbook, even hooked up the screen, camera and apple logo to work like a Macbooks, the trackpad works too, people are amazed when they see me running Linux or Windows
User avatar #312 to #311 - Noah (10/16/2012) [-]
Why should simplicity be more expensive?
It all comes down to the fact that a well known brand will be more expensive even if the quality isn't as good as a lesser known competitors.
Paying more for no reason is silly.
User avatar #315 to #312 - kumabear (10/16/2012) [-]
its not that simplicity is more expensive, its solid software, the updates rarely have glitches, the software itself has little to no problems(mine lags a little bit when playing music and updating) and the hardware is pretty stalwart as well, honestly i dont understand why the iPod classic costs so much, but hey, people buy it dont they? If someone would rather have an iPod over a zune, I understand it, my experience with Zune is like my fathers experience with his pants, it needs near constant replacement or replacement parts, the software updates are often glitchy and putting new music on it is not as quick as with an iPod, the fact i paid more and got something thats simple and to me is of better quality is why i prefer an iPod. I have an older one and i know people who have zunes they have taken care of, i mean like hard cases, hard boxes they keep them in, those things still break easy on em, if its not the shell/frame its the 3.5 mm jack or the innards have parts that burn out. it could just be their specific zune, but ive heard of it more than once, paying more one time is better then paying less a bunch of times.

Why would I have an Ipod? My mp3 player is much better, for 1/5th of the price. The reason why macs have the highest selling rate is because there are more to choose from if you buy normal computers.
User avatar #126 to #124 - kumabear (10/16/2012) [-]
The vast majority of MP3 players sold are iPods, theyre simple to use is the point and most FJers have them
User avatar #130 to #126 - remsaman ONLINE (10/16/2012) [-]
Mp3 players are simple to use. what can get simpler then just pressing a button to go to the next/previous song?
User avatar #146 to #130 - kumabear (10/16/2012) [-]
Thats exactly what an iPod is....
#149 to #146 - remsaman ONLINE (10/16/2012) [-]
never had one. im a poorfag.
and anyway. why pay so much money for an mp3 player that breaks easily when you could pay 5$ for one thats 1/10th of the size and as durable as a brick?
User avatar #158 to #149 - kumabear (10/16/2012) [-]
Ive had the same iPod for 5 years, the only reason I didnt have one even longer than that is cause someone stole my backpack when I was in high school
User avatar #159 to #158 - remsaman ONLINE (10/16/2012) [-]
dont take this the wrong way, but how can someone steal your backpack...?
User avatar #281 to #159 - kumabear (10/16/2012) [-]
In PE we put our bags and uniforms into lockers, someone stole the extra key from the PE coaches office (i think they got about 10 keys) a few days later all the lockers who's keys were stolen were emptied during PE, mine was one of those

User avatar #287 to #285 - kumabear (10/16/2012) [-]
Youre telling me? they caught the guy, his locker was full of stuff he had been stealing all year and they called his mom to look in his room, it was just stuffed with stolen tech, he sold my ipod on ebay, thats how they caught him, he was selling things on like five sites and one of the people he stole from bought his own ipod back from the kid

jesus christ, shouldnt he do time or something?
User avatar #291 to #290 - kumabear (10/16/2012) [-]
he still is, that was five years ago, hes doing time for grand theft, multiple counts, he was tried as an adult cause he knew it was wrong, he refused to apologize for it

No, Honolulu, Mainland cities send homeless people over here, or at least they used to

Excatly, I feel like most the people here hate on the brand name because that will make them cool on the internet. Internet hipsters man.
User avatar #128 to #123 - kumabear (10/16/2012) [-]
Its not just on the internet, i mean I buy brand names, but theyre not that well known, i buy clothes i like, durable stuff that i think looks good, I buy a lot of local clothes though, except my shorts, theyre all either Denizen, Tony Hawk, or Champs shorts
User avatar #115 - ronyx (10/16/2012) [-]
I have bought a lot at hollister, AE and some other big brand i can't remember and i never seen any cost 50 bucks. They usually cost like 20 bucks. I only buy from there because they have nice designs on them. Plus they always last me a while.

I get plain t-shirts for £3 .. but some of them i stitched **** to to make em interesting ..

But if a shirt was cool / had a big band logo or something on it I might pay like £15-£20 for it, probably not more than that.

Hollister isn't even a respected brand. Most people see it as whats cool for little ********* in middle school and high school.

If you're going to spend the money to get the brand name do it on something better than that **** . IE, Polo, Brooks Brothers
User avatar #127 to #103 - ninjahswagg ONLINE (10/16/2012) [-]
I don't even really see anyone wear hollister like it is the **** anymore. I just people wearing it here and there now, I read that it's not that popular here anymore.

Sportsdirect - old lines, for stupidly low prices. I'm not even embarrassed to say about 1/3 my wardrobe is from there, and total cost less than my waterproof winter jacket. (But damn is that jacket nice)

Let's all purchase normal white t-shirts, and prints different website logos on them, like FunnyJunk, 4chan, Reddit, and I guess 9gag, since they'd bitch and moan if we didn't.

hollister has good quality imo. and they're actually only 20 bucks for a t shirt
#85 to #73 - ragingheterosexual (10/16/2012) [-]
your picture... and their t-shirts are not $50 but they are also not high quality. I've bought shirts from there and they always end up with small holes in them.
User avatar #88 to #85 - HooptieDooptie (10/16/2012) [-]
never happened to me, mine have been perfectly fine
User avatar #77 to #73 - midnightflower (10/16/2012) [-]
Honestly their stuff is not high quality.. I could get a better quality shirt at a garage sale.
User avatar #82 to #77 - HooptieDooptie (10/16/2012) [-]
i find that when they are fresh out the dryer, they are not very wrinkled. but other brand t shirts are wrinkled to **** .. i'm guessing its because hollister t shirts are thicker which make them harder to wrinkle
User avatar #84 to #82 - midnightflower (10/16/2012) [-]
...they're thinner.
User avatar #86 to #84 - HooptieDooptie (10/16/2012) [-]
well i don't actually measure how thick the fabric is, but in my opinion it feels thicker than other brands
User avatar #75 to #73 - opensourcenegro (10/16/2012) [-]

If people want to wear $50 shirts i really don't have a problem with that

To be honest i don't wear $5 shirts. Probably around $20-30
