    Well, when it comes to shaving it all goes down to Gillette and their stuff, as I don't sheve a lot, usually, I get a pack with everything at Christmas and another for my birthday so I'm covered there.
    Clothes; well, my wife works in Burberry, so almost everything is from there, and as I buy clothes the same way as I buy toilet paper (meaning I don't care much the brand) my wife do the shopping.
    For shoes I got Geox because my feet won't sweat with them and they are big enough for me without having to be 'special size' like other brands.
    For the rest, there are few brands I trust in so I go after them always (like Nescafe for 'coffee alike')

    Church's make nice shoes. Although they're a tad pricey the shoes look stylish and are pretty durable if you look after them. However, like Rallymama, I can't profess any 'loyalty' to the brand since I would happily jump ship for a superior alternative.

    Razor- Gillette

    Cologne- Ralph Lauren Polo Blue

    Computer- Gateway

    Clothes- Unspecified

    MP3 Player- Apple. I prefer for my $300 mp3 player to have a workable interface and reliability over the lackluster innovation and bugs that tend to follow mock name-brands, thank you (let the flaming commence :lol: )

    Well, very few products are chosen based on their brand in my case, for instance, I don't care what brand my clothes are as long as I like them and they are comfortable...

    Lets see...

    Sunnies: Rayban
    Shaving Products: Gillette
    Cellphone: Nokia (N80)
    Chocolates: Cadbury
    Underwear: Jockey

    And that's about all that I can think of...

    Hmmm.. I do buy several brands, but I think its just a coincidence that I like things all from the same brand. Well, when it comes to clothes.

    Clothes (Shirts, sweaters, jeans, boxers) - American Eagle, Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister.. some Old Navy

    Shoes - Adidas, Puma or Nike. I especially like Puma.. I love the slenderness. :)

    Shaving - Doesn't really matter to me. :)

    Soap - Dove most of the time.

    Shampoo - Garnier Fruictis, the best ever.

    Deodorant - Axe

    Drinks? - Green Tea.. any Herbal Tea.. :) mmm

    Okay...time to bump slightly on my part...

    I'd previously said that just about the only product I was at all loyal to was Timex watches; well, that's over - my latest 'Ironman' literally fell apart...

    ...true, it was actually the strap that pulled itself off of the watch proper, but it's not the standard 'pin and loop' style that you can replace, so now, even though my watch itself works fine (and DOES 'take a licking but keep on ticking') as well as having the most intuitive setup I've seen, I can't use it as a WRIST watch. :(


    Call me "Mr. Generic"...

    Same as Barmy...

    Though I've recently noticed that I'm very attached to a particular brand of 100% recycled notepads. :bigeyes:
