See, I think it's great to pick what appeals to you and if you aren't gravitating toward logos at all or certain types of logos, it sounds like avoiding them is a good idea. I just dont understand going out of your way to avoid them just to make some sort of statement or because others think it is tacky.

Wear what you like, logos or not. That enough to me is good reason.

Completely agree that logos are rather annoying. If you want to go designer to PROVE something I don't see why they don't just get designer peices without the logos. I mean authentic designer peices.

One: They look much more authentic
Two: ...because no one buying a fake would get a fake without the logo as the whole point of buying a fake is to show off.

I try to avoid logos in general though for some peices or bags they are just inevitable. I have this simple Micheal Kors cotton tee that I wear to the gym a lot, it's got the words "Micheal Kors" in gems accross the chest. Inevitable because I absolutely love it. So comfortable.

I LOVE my spy bag for one thing because it doesnt have that really ugly Fendi logo splashed all over it. The interior I can handle. Another reason I love it is because it took me a month and a half to save up for the damn thing.

Point being

I think logos are just BLECH esspecially the god aweful LV or Gucci ones, I'm not even sure I appreciate the large Chanel logos on the Cambon bags. Perhaps hating them is a trend on its own. Who knows. I know I avoid them to avoid looking like I'm one of the many unappreciative people to the fashion inustries designers who goes out and purchases $20 fakes. Even if I have to save up forever to purchase a peice I love (as I only work an average part time job at a pharmacy..ugh) I will do it out of pure respect for the designer.

Sorry. End of rant.

I don't avoid/hide/take off logos because it's cool to do that.... I don't like logos because I am not a walking billboard for X company... To me it goes way beyond being trendy/tacky.... I am not trying to make a statement at all! I find it ridiculous to do free publicity for a label (because that's what logos are for) without being paid to do so...!

I agree with everyone that all over logoes like the pink dior or LV are tastless.

I dont mind little buttons or patches on jeans though like fashionista said though, or the lacotse aligators that seeing double brought up. Theres more to the piece than just the logos and they're pretty discreate. It's not like an all over logo or the brand in huge letters across the chest.

I also think theres a big difference between a logoed bag and an it bag. I wouldn't wear a zucca spy becuase I think the logoes are ugly and distract from the shape/design of the bag, and most logoed bag are canvas which is really yucky comapred to leather. I love my regular spy though. I think it's wrong to believe that people just buy it bags to show off that they have an it bag, some of them are really nice IMO.

I think logos are best when they're minimal. When they get too out of control- size wise or number wise- I find it takes the beauty out of the pieces. At least in my opinion.. lol

I'm not a fan of huge logos. I don't want to advertise the fact that an animal died to make me a purse which is why I tend to avoid designer bags-the fact that most of them are leather and many stamped with huge logos or flashy things that scream out the brand.

Like for D/G shades, a small logo is fine. And Lacoste is a classic as well as the polo rider on Ralph Lauren dress shirts.

Logos bother me when they are the design. Like a t-shirt that would be just a plain t-shirt if it wasn't for the logo. Usually it is just used as a way to show off. The other day at school a girl was wearing horrible LV ballet flats, I believe that were light blue with white "LV"'s all over them. I don't mind a small logo on a purse, sunglasses, etc. or on a polo/dress shirt.

i don't buy designer anything really, so logos aren't an issue for me. that being said, i hate them. why would i want to drop 1500 bucks on a bag that had someone's tacky logo sprayed all over it. in my opinion, everyone should get paid to carry stuff like that, it is a walking advertisement for the designer.

i prefer to buy off name clothes that i like and mix and match. i can't afford designer anything, and don't feel that my style is lacking without it.

I can understand the *want* to show off your designer labels.

But I got some sense knocked into me, I knew it was completely useless and pathetic :p .

I search for independent, beautifully made items now only.

I know there is so much that goes into it; sometimes I just wish that people would be more conscious consumers and think about the implications of outfitting oneself in logo-wear.

On another note, does anyone remember the big rage of Calvin Klein and Gap logo t-shirts and sweaters from several years ago? Goodness gracious...

^ That's very true.

I have to say that if I buy something from a not-so-classy label, I sometimes cut out the brand...I don't pretend they are from somewhere else, I just don't want people to know I bought them there...If anybody can understand anything about what I'm trying to say...

i don't like showing logos so better keep them.
if you wear logo one piece should be maximum! (for example a bag with visible logo). if it has to be, one piece is alright, more is just tacky and wanna-be
