The most overpriced clothing brand?

Title says it all.

What do you think is the most overpriced clothing brand that you know? Overpriced clothing brands have three common qualities

1. High price
2. Mediocre quality
3. Sloppy design (monotone..boring) > would worth nothing w/o the logo

--I tend to avoid these brands like a plague

For me

1. Abercrombie and Fitch
2. Lacoste
3. Marciano

For me

1. Abercrombie and Fitch
2. Lacoste
3. Marciano

Might as well put holister up there as well though they have some decent prices during a sale the regular price is quit high for medium quality fabric

I find Hollister's style to be really similar to A&F but with lower price, but yea, I do agree that it's still overpriced

also..., would definitely add French Connection to my list

I always hated Bape. So much money for such ugly products. For similar money you could get much better brand, and much better clothes.

Bape and BBC are way too overpriced but some of their designs are actually really nice.

I find Banana Republic rediculously overpriced for the same things you can get in GAP or Old Navy.
