Hello /fa/ how are you today?
What do you guys think of Superdry?
Basically I work for Superdry (In a relatively unimportant position) and just wondered how you position them compared to other stuff out there in a similar price bracket. Just out of personal curiosity really.
The only experience I have with the brand is a peacoat. I like it, but I had to break out the seam ripper to remove some labels. They really like to let you know from every angle that they are in fact superdry. Nice quality for the price though.
I used this brand a while back, and I can say that most of my shirts had really warm fabric. I began to sweat really fast, if I was wearing a Superdry T-shirt.
I only have one thing from Superdry, and it's their backpack. I love it.
I have this jacket for fall and gloomy weather. I love it because the fabric is nice and cozy + the hood fits even over my giant retard head.
I bought it for those reasons only and didn't care for the brand though.
>buying anything based on a brand name
I also agree that they really exaggerate the logo placement and think it's cool to make seams stand out with bright colours.
its funny because i was actually talking about this with my brother today at the shopping center. how does all this ornamentation crap get through development? is anyone not seeing this?
and btw my bro mentioned superdry is from England and not jap. LOL
eh? it's a british company who went on an 'expedition' to Japan to acquire an aesthetic for their clothing, hence the heavy use of logos and characters and bright colours (City shop/advert lighting in Tokyo and Osaka). The quality is pretty good, but because of the stigma generated from the shitty portion of their userbase (mid-life crisis dads, chavs, etc) and huge and numerous logos (making it easy to identify), it's become an unpopular brand. I have a ton of their t-shirts from when i was younger -they've lasted me ages and fit really well, but I dare wear them on show because I don't wanna look like a chav (I'm a physics student)
One of my go to hoodies -thick, warm matches my eyes and goes well with mid-brown hair.
Logo is tiny (for once)
You can find stuff there, but just like the chan, it's like searching for diamonds in a shit heap
Doing a survey?? I'll bite:
Male, 30 years old, height 185cm, weight 89kg, denmark.
I own currently a superdry shirt, hoodie, and a couple of tshirts.
I really like superdry clothes, I just dont own that much of it because its pretty fucking expensive here. Some of the clothes are over the top but there is a lot of it that looks really good IMO and fits my body build pretty good. I am slender but not fit at all, so my stomach sticks out slightly... So I cant exactly fit slim-fit clothes, and larger sizes is way to big because I am not overweight at all. Superdry fits this middle-ground perfectly.
One huge plus is the quality and thickness of the fabric, its very nice, can last for ages, and nice here in the cold climate.
Oh, they could at least have proper real japanese words instead of google translating everything. If I ever walk past a japanese tourist I sometimes think if they mock everyone wearing superdry, just as we westernes mock japanese people for clothes with random nonsense english words on.
LUCKILY here superdry doesnt have the same image as in say the UK because its so fucking expensive. Yet. By that time I might be older and then i switch to Hilfiger anyway, because that looks pretty damn nice. But the pricetag...
I found that superdry clothes is smaller sizes than normal. 99% of the time my tshirts for example are Large, but with superdry I HAVE to use XL otherwise they are too small. So my own rule of thumb with superdry is go one size larger than you usually would, then it fits perfectly. Try that.
Walked into Superdry store at Mall of America.
