IDK, I have a lot of clothes that are "name" brand. But I never paid much for any of them. If they were new they were either on clearance or discount. A lot of my clothes were used from ebay or Goodwill - I just buy ones that didn't look to have been worn much or at all. I've gotten to where it's rather pointless to spend money to advertise for some clothing brand. If anything they should pay the person buying the T-shirt with the name in huge letters to advertise for them.
To be honest, I don't really pay that much attention to what other people wear, unless they have a style I really like.
When I was younger, my school clothes were all nerdy looking, and when I got older I wanted to have my own style and shed the nerdy image.
I like having a nice haircut and beard, it makes me feel more confident, but really the statement that "clothes make the man" is completely untrue. You have to have the right personality and confidence. Clothes might make you feel better but if you don't have good posture, outgoing, etc people will still be put off. It's nowhere near as easy as just having the right look.
Underneath the cold November sky, I wait for you... As the pages of my life roll by, I wait for you... I'm so desperate just to see your face, meet me in this broken place...
Be a little brave for a little bit of time.
