Not a fan of stripes and don't buy clothing/shoes that have the companie's ads on them.
I'm not going to do free advertising for you,plus,I think it looks tacky and cheap.
Totally agree. I'm also puzzled by the willingness of high-end brands to, as you say, have their customers do free advertising for them.
How many of us would be willing to wear a billboard with a company's name on it? When we don't earn anything from it? And when its something that costs us money - like shoes, handbag, or shirt, there is even less sense in advertising it for them.
I agree it looks tacky and again, I'm surprised at high end brands doing this.
