This is a bit obscure, but Thayer's Witch Hazel. It's a very gentle skin cleanser. I've tried other brands and the scent is just horrible. I don't know what the difference is, but Thayer's smells fine even in original unscented . It's a nice cleanser for sensitive skin, FYI. :)
Other than that... Coke. ;)

Nintendo. One of the my first consoles was the NES, so I grew up playing Nintendo games. Their 1st party games are generally very good, and they haven't exploited DLCs like many other companies have.
I second this. I don't care if their consoles are graphically behind. The games are all that matters.
Duluth Trading Company is an amazing! They back their product 100%, they have a lifetime warranty on all clothing they sell. I purchase everything I can from them and have only had to send one pair of jeans back for a replacement... 2 YEARS later! And the damage to the jeans was my own fault. I paid shipping to get the old pair back to Duluth, but they covered the rest and basically asked no questions. I wish more companies stood by their product like that. Also, for a lot of items, you are able to pay a bit more to have a product made in the US.

Festool. They make some of the best tools for woodworking. We are redoing our house and the sander and hepa shop-vac made it so there was almost no dust in our house. This was very important as we needed to live in the house while we worked. It is an investment but man I feel like what I saved from hiring a contractor it has paid off in spades. I also have a drill from them and I think it is pretty nice as well.
I love me some Burt's Bees. I have basically chronically dry lips because I breathe through my mouth so often. Burt's Bees is probably the first chapstick that is actually able to help a brotha out.
Android, D'Addario instrument strings, and Keen sandals.
Jansport backpacks. That's about it.
Razor Blades: Shark
Honestly that's about it, and Canon I'm only loyal to because I'm bought in. If someone offered me some good money to switch to NIkon, I'd do it.
Heinz. Toyota. Lurpak. Ariel. Finish. British Gas (can't think why).
Sweet Baby Ray's.
Amen, that stuff is amazing, only kind I will buy!
Generic. That's my overwhelming choice. From ibuprofen to soda to cereal. Ibuprofen works the same way if it has brand or not, Big K Cola doesn't taste different enough from Coke to make a difference, and Sam's Choice Raisin Bran is probably made in the same factory as Kellogg's or Post. Why should I pay more for the marketing and packaging if the Price First stuff tastes the same or at least just as good?
I like Under Armour clothing. I'll continue buying from them until I have a reason not to.

AMC. Their tv shows always rock.
Typically my choices on most things in life tend to shift based on reviews, price, economy, aesthetics, etc.
That said, I'm loyal to Oral-B toothbrushes, Jameson Irish Whiskey, Rockstar energy drinks, and Apple electronics.
Seagram's and Budweiser
