There's tons of clothes you can get with little to no logos at urban outfitters, Uniqlo and such and still look decent

I have many Volcom shirts, all of them have their logo, but it's not the logo itself, its always stylized. People that dont know them dont even think that there is a big logo right in front of them.

I have 2 nike shirts that I need to think twice before wearing them because of the not so big logo on them... only bought because they have high quality materials...

Hate these logo stuff. Another thing that I hate: shirts with 'city' theme. "New York' shirt... "LA" shirt, these two are in all stores... generic USA colors/flag as well. arrgh. in the meantime the person wearing those shirts have neve been to those places, nor have any knowledge about them.

The expensive stuff is generally a lot better though. I hate logo's, and it's often a pain finding clothes I like that don't turn me into a billboard. I'm glad this is becoming more of a thing.

I hate logos and try to make everything as minimal and flat as possible. I recently scraped off the logos on my giant mouse pad for this exact reason... If it didn't cost a couple hundred bucks I'd send my macbook in to get the apple removed.

Their is something attractive about the simplicity and lack of branding.

You can get out. Many expensive brands and custom made clothes don't use logos.

Was brilliantly stumbled into by the brand.

I think it is suppose to be a statement of wealth among poor people? Kind of like Jordans?

Logos started on clothes as statements of wealth.

If Superdry could remove those hideously uncomfy and bulky labels stitched into the back of their T-shirts and shirts AND if they could make their sizes actually representative and not make the clothes feel tight when I pick TWO SIZES above what usually fits me fine with every other brand.. that would be great, thanks!

Not even remotely worth the effort. If you want blank shirts just go buy a 20 pack of plain t shirts or something at the dollar store.

I remember when I bought a bag some time ago. There was a logo that I did not even recognise, and believed it was part of design. Did not think about it a lot. Then the first day I carry it I am teased about being a brand person. Apparently it was a super hip brand from the 80's that was bought and reused.


I'd avoid branded stuff as it makes me more of target in getting mugged. But none of my clothes (H&M, Mango, etc) have logos at all, save for my cheap (but well built) current bag and a pair of converse. I'm feeling pretty stupid about wanting a Michael Kors wallet. It's like the only brand thing I would like to own, but I have to tell myself that it's a waste of money and I can buy something much better for cheaper

It's not that I'm logo averse, but I will generally not find clothing all that attractive if it has a monstrously huge logo emblazoned on it. Something smaller I'm not going to give a shit about, or if the logo is worked into the design in some cool way.

What? It's pretentious to not want to advertise a brand on a piece of clothing that you bought?

I avoid shirts and brands with obnoxious logos. The current trend in luxury retail is focused on minimalist designs. Gaudy in your face designs was a big thing in the early 2000. I like buying high quality tshirts from Lululemon because you can barely spot their logo. For most people I think Zara, H&M and Uniqlo are there go to store when avoiding logos.

My philosophy is, if the clothes do not have a logo, I'm not paying much for them. You can get plenty of quality generic stuff at warehouse stores and Goodwill.

Stuff happens in cycles anyway, and logos will come back.

Yeah. I kinda feel like Armani Exchange fell into that. I see quite a few people wearing AX clothing with their hideous and large logos on it.

As someone who used to do this, pay a bit more and buy some nicer quality plain tees. Those cheap undershirts are meant to be cheap undershirts. Buy some from uniqlo, H&M, etc....

I've been following mid to high-end male fashion for awhile and you can clearly see how this is the natural outcome. Brands that market themselves as high-quality and direct-to-consumer do not include logos on their items.

You can look through old YouTube videos back when people cared about logos "Polo everything. Polo down." But now it is pretty lame to have your identity wrapped up in a brand/logo.

I don't expect most people on forums not dedicated to fashion to care or notice these trends.

Yup AX was obnoxious with their logo but now I see more shirts that either lack a design or have a small AX on it.

The worst was Ed Hardy back in 2000-2009

They seem cut for slim and tall people who like tight clothing, can't imagine other type being able to wear them.
Even on a model they look like they're wearing kid's clothes to me.

Agreed. Good graphic design makes me want to wear certain logos, even. Nice embroidery is a bonus too, if it's small and done in what I consider to be good taste.

Clothes with logos tend to be pricier. I suspect this is more due to folks not having as much cash to buy $150 nikes or $70 slim fitted jeans from X place.
