Some brands are better than others. You can save on shopping time if you find a brand with a fit model shaped more like you.


I have found that UK brands like Dorothy Perkins and ASOS fit me better than their American counterparts.

My lucky brand of clothing seems to be Izod. Pink is my signature color, and Izod always seems to have an extensive selection of pink shirts that I like.
Ralph Lauren
Calvin Klein
Donna Karan
Michael Kors

These brands always have pieces that can be used as wardrobe staples

ETA..... for the below

Nonsense. Some are cheaply made with substandard fabrics and workmanship. They tend to be ill-fitting.
Good classic pieces can last forever, and they fit really well.

For me, "lucky" brands means clothes which cut compliment my body. I have broad shoulders and quite short (5 7), and I hate any tops that dangles all the way down that makes you look like you are wearing a woman dress.
So they would be:
Esprit (when they were still available in the US), A|X, Zara, Desigual and A&F

Also anytime I went to Asia or Europe, most clothes they sell fit me more. Meters & Bonwe in China is like heaven - it's cheaper version of H & M with better quality.
