Store Tiers

Mall-tier/Fast Fashion: Only purchase for basics such as t-shirts, underwear, socks, etc. Generally should be avoided, but recommended for poorfags. Buy sparsely and do NOT build a large wardrobe with these stores.

Low-tier: A bit more pricey compared to fast fashion brands. Some under this catagory could also fit themselves into fast fashion, but their reputation has served them to be less diaposable.

Medium-tier:The start to entry level designer pieces. Clothes are made of a higher quality with an idea in mind, however still caters to a general audience.

Haute couture: High end fashion created from expensive fabric and sewn together with incredible attention to detail. These brands build to create a story and send a message, thus their clothes are created for a certain body build in mind.

Artisanal: Hand-made with skill that approaches that of an artist. This has nothing to do with design and everything to do with production methods. A boring design done fully by hand (e.g., a full bespoke two button suit) is 'artisanal'. Many designers source their clothing from artisans, but not all designer clothing is 'artisanal'.
