Huge, visible logos are a bit trashy IMO. I avoid visible logos as much as I can. And you don't see as much logowear on the streets as you used to a couple of years ago either, thankfully. Times change...

IMO, real fashionistas have no need to display the brand. It's more about high style and I get personal satisfaction knowing for myself, who I'm wearing rather than advertise to everyone. But then you get 'wannabes' who run up to you and ask, "who is that you're wearing?" That is so silly....

Agreed. Absolutely unnecessary and not the least bit classy. Whenever I even see someone with a logo t-shirt nowadays, they look like an advertisement for that brand to me, which I think looks totally foolish. And when everyone is wearing logos, doesn't that defeat the purpose of the supposed exclusivity of the brand? The more you think about it, the less sense it makes.

My city is more or less poor and there are hardly any classy or chic people living here so any logo piece you will see is probably fake. Tacky, tacky.

Logos are only acceptable if they are part of the design. I don't know if that made much sense, but I'm talking about stuff like the LV bags everyone has. I don't like those personally but I think things like that look better than say, a t-shirt that just says "Dior" on the front.

i totallyyyy agree with u Velouria..if its with the design its nice but not like those big chanel sunglasses with the moooost biggest chanel logo on da side..espeically if the sunglasses dont really suit u..i mean duuuh..the whole purpose of wearing sunglasses is to protect ur eyes not advertise for chanel!!!!

logos are over where i'm from, its only cheap imitation bags that are sold outside tube stations that sell the logo bags, eyewear etc...
so even those who can really afford logos avoid buying them as in original pieces because nobody would really believe they are authentic..

fashion is for fun and it is a style issue, logos are the epitome of tacky cheesy style

welcome to tfs fashionbutterfly , and yes you are right, our threads move FAST

I can't say I am a fan of this look. I don't mind carrying logoed bags, and wearing logoed sunglasses, but logoed clothes for me are a no-no. I don't mind recognizable designs though, such as the Paddington

I dont think that a small logo accessory is so tacky. If it fits, it fits..
