The only exceptions are things that need to be dry cleaned, and gloves.

It's more bonkers that you have exceptions because that rules out OCD.

I got bad news for you Andy. That said, I have many terrible graphic t-shirts and love them, I just know they are terrible from a fashion point of view, then again so are Tommy Hilfiger and RL imo. It really doesn't matter too much for me as my boss often has the same t-shirts.
Agree big time here, I reckon Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren are actually way worse than graphic/slogan tees. Logos seem to be getting bigger again too , must be some correlation with the economy. The extra big horse logo polo Ralph Lauren stuff is gruesome

I'd imagine I'm in a minority, but it's far from a minority of one

Clothing isn't sprayed with formaldehyde to keep insects off it anyway. First off, wrapping in plastic in far cheaper, secondly, insects don't eat polyester.

As for it being in contact with other humans, I'm sure you've sat on a public seat with shorts on or rested your arm on a bar.

Only their bottom level stuff/knock offs have logos.

Remember that psv lives in nowhere land where they do things differently. Haven't noticed a logo for a long time. Thought they were dead tbh as was always such a silly idea. Although then again that could be a cultural difference.

Would you stop , I’ve seen the same trash downstairs in Brown Thomas(never bought anything in there just go in to reaffirm that money doesn’t buy class and it never disappoints )
But tbf superdry and Diesel still going very strong in culchieland so cultural differences are still there
Plus don’t you still live in France, of course you haven’t seen a logo

Very good piece by Colm Tobin on the horrible slog of cancer treatment. As well written as you'd expect I thought it was interesting how the effect of the whole trauma seems reflected in his writing

Labels put me off but I was brought to a UniQlo shop recently and they had very good quality clothes at cheap prices.

I don't know Denny, I've was in RL & TH a few times in Kildare Village in recent weeks and the giant logos are still around.
Perhaps the bottom level stuff makes up a large proportion of what they stock but they're definitely still prominent.

One of nicer brands of casual stuff I own is lululemon. It's more expensive than most sporting brands but substantial difference in quality to Nike/UA/Adidas

Getting involved in a public spat with poker's biggest celebrity? How can that be bad for business? Doke's book is not long released, and i'm sure this attention has done his sales no harm at all, nor will it their viewer numbers for the Phil Helmuth episode of the podcast which is up next. I'm sure they don't mind pissing off a few people in the process.
