My fav. pants brand is LEI and Mudd. That's about all I wear, with a few exceptions. Other than that I wear any brand that I like the style and fit of the clothes

actually, my favorite type of clothes are vintage! can't beat the prices, plus they have that years-of-loving smell to them. every clothing piece has a story. i like wearing stories.

i think the only actual store i've bought stuff at and intended to go back eventually was hottopic, but just because they had invader zim stuff. plus i got a bettie page t-shirt there and you know, you just can't get any better than bettie page!

a lot of my favorite stuff is from abercrombie and fitch, but i don't shop there anymore because i don't like their business practices and i don't really like their clothes.

i like j. crew, gap, anthropologie, urban outfitters. i love michael stars t-shirts and levi's jeans seem to fit best. i haven't bought much lately though - i am a fan of borrowed/inherited clothing. i just got a madras belt from my mommy and a braided leather one from my dad. :-D most of my money these days does for school and skiing, i'm afraid...

I have a a lot of items from Esprit and Express because I love everything those stores carry. I don't buy them wholesale though; I get them at Ross or Marshalls.

I'm not really much of a brand name person, although I love having nice clothes. I'd rather have 4 shirts than 1 really expensive one.

I buy what I like.

they have brand names? lol just playing =)

i never go by clothes brand names... and i cant tell one from another anyway... clothes are clothes are clothes... at least to me =)

i love all cute clothes. lol i never buy clothes full price... unless they're not that expensive to begin with... i love hunting for cute, discounted stuff. sum call it bargain shopping, but that sounds not so cool...

i just got the cutest pants the other day... looked for like 1/2 hr. they're jeans and somehow fit sooo nicely on me... its a miracle! lol... anywat they have like an opening from the bottom up a few inches... and pretty rinestones... i heart rhinestones... they go straight up in a line in the front. and the pants were only $6... i was soooo happy... talk about hunting...

that was totally off topic... anywat...
hunt clothes ont animals people! =)

For some reason the only pants that I've been able to find that fit me nearly perfectly are Aeropostale brand. I have a curvy bottom and a very small waist, so most pants that I try on are usually too tight in the butt or too big toward the belly. I also like Mudd jeans- LEI jeans don't like me very much, apparently, as I've never been able to get a pair of those darn things to fit. Oh, I like Angel jeans and Arizona jeans too.

As for other stuff, I'll buy any brand if I like the style. My favorites are Aeropostale, Abercrombie & Fitch (though I hardly ever shop there as there prices are a bit out of my price range), Weather Vane, American Eagle (another store that's rather expensive for my budget), and Rue 21. Candies and Billabong clothes are okay too, but I don't buy much of either of those brands, because Pac Sun scares me (umm.. don't ask why).

I love Superlow Levi's, but they are a bit big in my waist and tight on my butt. I got these great L.E.I pants (i think they are) that are like sweat/gym pants. They're red with 2 stripes down the side, have pockets, and zip at the bottom(for leg breathing). They're great because of the elastic waist.

Has anyone heard of Forever 21? I love that store, they have the cutest clothes for great prices. A shirt is like $9 and pants like $18-25 usually. Everybody at school is just like, "that is so cute, where did you get it?"....."forever 21" and one thing I really like about that store is they change their styles every week so its pretty rare that someone at school will have the exact same thing ( I hate that so much).

I tried on my sister's Superlow Levis and they were so short! They were also really tight, so I think they were too small, but soo short! She has a long torso and shorter legs and i'm the opposite!

I've never heard of Forever 21. Where are they located?

I don't know about Houston. But I live in Cali and my friend lives in Virginia. That's across the country.

Oh and about superlow Levi's they have more than one style. The ones I got are 518. They probably have about 4 different styles for the superlows. Im really not sure how many, but Im guessing.

I dont have a favourite brand name. It usually happens that I can only find pants to fit, that are really cheap (found at K-mart, Target, Wal-Mart) or expensive pants (100$ give or take) that I find at TJ Maxx or other discount stores for a price I can actually aford.

I am a HUGE bargain shopper. I love garage sales, vintage stores, good-wills, anywhere where I can find awsome, unique, one of a kind, nobody else will have it, cheap, articles of clothing.

And I love K-Marts, Targets, Meijers, Wal-Marts, and those kinds of department stores, I always find stuff to fit there.

I work at Aeropostale right now...and so most of my clothes are from there cuz i get them cheap. although i've only found a few pairs of pants that fit well. Personally, i favor american eagle jeans. they always seem to fit juuust right. and they aren't TOO overpriced...(or so they dont seem when u have an AE clearcard sitting in ur wallet...lol) i also like alot of the shirts at AE...but basically wherever. haven't bought clothes in a while. can't really remember. lol. oh i also like a *few* things at weathervane.

YouKnowWho, one thing gotta understand about America is that we protect free speech, even if what is being said is completely repugnant and offensive. While I find racism completely objectionable, I firmly believe that people have the right to be idiots. So no, it is not illegal for Target to sell clothing with offensive iconography on it. But as a private corporation, it is in Target's best interest *not* to sell such items. After all, it's hard to sell stuff if ppl are too pissed off to buy it from you.

I don't really wear label clothing.
I don't shop at mainstream stores very often, though sometimes I find nice black skirts in places like Portmans.
I also got a beautiful lace shawl at Portmans.
Otherwise I'll go to Peril or a similar emporium store in the city. I'm a bit of a goth, ya see.
