    Do you mean consistently?

    Spikes (soccer shoes) - Adidas
    Toothpaste - Colgate
    Soap - Dove

    When it comes to clothes in general, I'm not really brand-specific. I just buy stuff that I happen to like, and I don't buy clothes often. But if we're generalizing, I'd say for jeans it would have to be Levi's. Shoes it'd be a toss-up between Adidas and Nike.

    I always get my petrol from BP because they have AA Rewards. Kinda like airpoints but for petrol.

    Other than that, I don't think I ever go out of my way to purchase a particular brand.

    I'm not attached to any brands save coffee kinds I like and favourite beers. As for the rest, there are many rotations and I never fail to check out what the competition has. ;) Not like I won't try a new coffee or beer. ;)

    Ah! Whiskey! I'll have a Jack Daniels.

    And the watch I never use is titanium, cause it's light, strong and (most important) not shiny. I don't want to be a Bling King.

    What's with you people getting Sony Ericsson phones? They're the worst s*** I ever encountered in all the years I worked in the telecom industry - they're even worst than the VTech A700 and the Mitsubishi G310, and being even worst than those two is not a small feat.

    That's not coffee. That's instant. Drink some real coffee. There's enough of it in England.

    I've had no problem with Sony Ericsson's and I don't know anyone who has. They're full of features and they make attractive models.

    Harbs, I don't drink much coffee at all, it's either tea or beer for me old bean :) .

    Most food, clothes, I buy whatever's on sale or whatever comes to hand first.

    I stick to fragrance-free Cheer for washing clothes and store-brand, non-fragrance softener sheets for drying them. I'm not allergic to the fragrance, just find it unpleasant.

    Shampoo currently is Dove but when that big bottle runs out it may be something else. Person who cuts my hair may wish I used one of the expensive salon brands but I can't tell a difference. Soap is Dove for face, Dial for body, but I switch to others now and then, as long as there's not a strong smell - see above.

    Toothbrush is whatever the dentist gives me :D


    Brands don't attract me so much as how the product performs when I use it - if I like the performance I'll buy the same thing again, if not, probably not.

    And I avoid as much as possible clothing with logos. I already paid to buy the wretched stuff, why am I also advertising it for these people?
