I've always tried to avoid buying clothes with logos on them. Can't always do it, but at least it can happen most of the time.

I like this trend. While I wouldn't go to the extreme of removing branding, I prefer smaller, subtle branding and logos. Giant logos can be really tacky. You don't have to show off what brand you're wearing and how much you paid for it.

I actually actively avoid wearing clothing with logos, either real or fake logos. I guess I don't like being "branded".

One of the stupidest things I ever saw, was a teenage punk girl with an Adidas T-shirt with the little worded logo crossed out with permanent maker pen. I mean, I get the "message" but if you are so hardcore, then just wear unbranded clothes or logo-less brands.

Yes...I think when you see highend brands with logos, they're usually collections from the lower line. For people who can't afford but yet want to buy something expensive to showoff.

I've pretty much try to avoid branded things for all my life as much as I could (it is unavoidable sometimes though). I just don't like the look. For a few years in middle school and early high school, shoes were the exception to this rule/preferemce.

I hate logos, especially big logos, that said it is complete bullshit if you believe that $5 shirt is the same quality as that $40 shirt. I just wait until that $40 shirt is 50% off.

To be clear in some cases it is (I've seen some shitty shirts at Pac-Sun that should of only been $5). That said most of the time you get what you pay for.

I don't try to remove any logos from my clothes but I prefer hidden or tiny brand logos.
Large Logos are still fine but only if I have a personal connection to that label (basically 0 of all those generic clothing brands) for example with Band Shirts.

People that buy their clothing mostly to show off some brands should keep the price tags on their clothings as well

I've been saying this for the longest time. I'd rather have a quality piece of clothing that says nothing than a regular piece of clothing with free advertising in it.

There's a brand here, Etiqueta Negra. Expensive as balls, but top quality and design, and not a single logo in sight. Love them.

I'm really cheap when I buy clothes (except for shoes) so most of my stuff doesnt have logos anyway.
But yeah, I don't like them. Even when I buy more expensive brands I get stuff with small logos or none at all.

Aside from that, no, never.



Somebody is paying for the shortfall in price. Probably a 5-10 year old in Bangladesh.

I was almost going to mention SuperDry in my previous post as an especially negative example.

Their clothes look ridiculous with the huge, cringy logos. Sometimes I walk by the local SuperDry store and spot a nice looking jacket or shirt but the logo immediately ruins it for me.

I've been doing this for years (wearing clothes without obvious logos, not the removing part). In the days before ubiquitous online shopping I remember hunting in stores for a logoless baseball cap in a dark color. I'm glad for the shift away. Kids back in the day (90s, early 00s) were obsessed with shirts and pants with huge branding on it. There was basically no design to it. They were proudly walking advertisements in bland ill-fitting clothing.

Always take the sleeves of mine anyway.
I'm happy with cheap clothing since I never notice the quality.

Not a big clothing person as you can probably tell.Just jeans and a tee do me fine.

There was a trend happening in the early 2000's though. The whole express yourself stuff and it brought high fashion to kids and expressing yourself through your clothing choices and being part of the in crowd. Kids these days are more fashionable than most adults let alone any past generation.

Yeah it's hard to find band/rock shirts that are cut well. Usually they are too big and the cut in general is shit with huge sleeves etc. Can't wear those sacks.

I do have some nice slim fit rock shirts though that I like. My current favorite is this one by German stoner rockband Kadavar (only "Berlin" is written below the face on my version of the shirt):



Combine that with a darker longsleeve shirt (rolled up sleeves of course) and you have a pretty good look. Received quite a couple of compliments when wearing it.

How one would go about removing this logo?



Why would they ruin such a clean cut and with a nice color by stamping such an obnoxious logo on the back? The front with the orange letters is already bad enough.

Do kids still leave stickers on baseball caps? that shit droves me up the wall, along with leaving the brim flat and not curving it.

In my day a nice curve to your Basketball team baseball cap was a sign of of how rad you were. Nowdays kids don't even know what's rad or hip, I can't dig to that jive you know m'man?

there are other brands with better quality that hide their logos. Even some skater or general sport brands cost more in average than the cheaper Gucci stuff. Buying blank "clothing brand" apparel with big logos is just stupid bragging / begging for attention

I only wore branded clothing when I was going through puberty because everyone else was wearing them. It was a good marketing strategy to peer pressure kids into buying your brand.

They're more expensive because they can charge you whatever they like. Because they have the advertisement money to tell you what and what is not cool.
