Durable Clothes
« on: April 16, 2011, 10:16:15 AM »
Nauuso na kasi ang "disposable fashion" like forever 21, zara, topshop

na kahit mahal an gmga damit, madali ding masira

tulad din ng local brands ng Kamiseta, Kashieca etc...

What brands that are available locally are DURABLE

Nakakafrustrate kasi andali masira ng mga damit kahit ang mamahal, and sa dami ng brands na available, I only know a few na ok pa din ang quality

1. Folded and Hung - Okay ang quality especially ng jeans, may isa akong pair 6 years na ang its looks better pa, pati mga shirts nila okay

for foreign brand, I have stuff from Mango na buhay pa din, pero may iba din silang tinda na madaling masira lalo na yung maninipis na shirts


We all love to splurge to clothes and stuff, pero we want our money's worth din.
Nakakafrustrate lalo na sa forever21 o how I hate that brand.

Any suggestions for durable clothing?

ako naman I don't like the Esprit shirts.  pero yong iba nila na clothes ok.  Ang daling masira ng shirts nila for me, parang twice ko pa lang suot, ang pangit na after, parang lumang luma na.  mas durable pa nga minsan unbranded eh :)

Levi's jeans. I have mine (straight-cut denims) purchased way back 2003 and it's still wearable to date.

I think one should splurge on classic shirts, pants and blazers because they survive regardless of season and they never go out of style.

sis san may esprit dito
Alam ko meron sa SM Manila, Megamall, Shangrila, Robinson's Manila.
I find their clothes pricey eh. Siguro pag dress madali talaga masira.

Nung time na maganda pa ang Kamiseta (way back college years, late 90s) mayron akong blouses na nasusuot ko pa 3-4 years after nabili. Not sure about their quality now, I stopped buying since they got Alicia Silverstone as a model. Napangitan kasi ako sa designs nila after nun.

For me, ok ang Plains and Prints. Nice style and matibay talaga.

Giordano is okay. The shirt I bought there 5++ years ago is still presentable. Di ko na nga lang magamit panglabas since nag lose weight na ako since then.

For local, I think Bayo is also okay. The jeans that I bought from them almost 2 years ago is still my favorite at lagi kong nagagamit :)

When you say durable, do you mean the sewing/stitching or the fabric?

As for jeans kasi usually matibay talaga sila, because denim fabric, makapal, good stitching to hold things together, locked yung buttons, except for zipper siguro baka mahirap di smooth or maging rusty.

kung mga silk, seda, chiffon, goergette, lace,knit,  net, ang mga fabrics, handwash lang dapat.

for polo shirts, yung ibang nawawala na sa korte/form ang collar, or na-de-deform yung mismong shirt and hindi na sya symmetrical, depende na rin siguro sa paglalaba at pagsasampay or pagpa-plantsa.

For me, my usual problem with clothes is natatastas, nawawala ang buttons, nabubutas (probably due to moths/insects eating the cloth if not properly stored)

When buying clothes, I look at the quality of the fabric and the stitching.

Last night I went to F21 and I am so disappointed to see that "some" of their clothes has the same quality as those sold at Divisoria.  Some still have that good quality but those are the pricey ones.

I must agree that plains and prints have good quality.

Whenever I buy button-down blouses, I check yung tahi ng butones, and dino-doble ko sinulid dun para I don't worry about missing buttons later, mahirap kasi maghanap ng kapalit unless palitan mo na lang lahat ng butones.

So far, in my closet, I have clothes from Pink Soda, For Me, Plains & Prints, Bayo, Freeway/Ensembles,  Mint, Apple & Eve, Paper Dolls, Calypso, Blanc Noir, Julia, Space, Scoop, Bossini, Lee, Xara (not Zara), Guess, etc. whatever brand nasa SM/Rob dept store. In case you have tried some brands I mentioned that are durable, post your testimonies for our other GT sisters na lang.

For jeans I have 1 Giordano, 2 Levi's, 2 Kamiseta, 3 Bench, 3 Human, 1 DP skinny, also before Jag, Wranco, Freego, Colours. I seldom buy new jeans unless they get lost or damaged due to laundry stains or wear&tear or tumaba ako. Haven't bought anything in M&S, Mango, Petite Monde, Memo, F&H yet.

I don't usually go for brand (loyalty), I'm not brand conscious.
As long as that particular product is good & reasonably priced & I either need or want it, I buy it. Most expensive I have bought is 2k regular price, usually it's a dress (Karimadon/Freeway) for an occassion, no time to wait for a 50% off sale eh.

I haven't really bought anything from Forever21, dresses are nice but expensive for something not durable. I could easily buy dresses for 1/3 it's price. For Zara For Kids, I only bought sweat shirts.
For Gap, henleys for layering. Sa abroad naman kasi such brand names are just their local brands eh, it's expensive for us earning in pesos but cheap for those earning in dollars. I mean it's just like our local brands here. For foreign brands, I try to buy if it's PH-made than China made or other country.

Mga Guess shirts ko okay na okay pa. Di ako mahilig bumili ng clothes eh, kaya dapat matibay talaga. Sa jeans, bench at giordano.

Bossini, Promod, Zara, Guess and G2000 pulido ang tahi. Yung mga cardigans sa mango ang daling masira.
