I wonder, of most of your clothing purchases, what market segment would you consider them?

Most of my clothing purchases seem to be mid-range. For some basics like some T-shirts, socks, and underwear I buy economy, but these are typically things people care less about.

BTW, I consider Economy and Fast Fashion to be different. Economy brands are brands such as Hanes, Fruit of the Loom, and Gildan as well as Walmart-type clothing, while Fast Fashion are brands like H&M and Forever 21.

I buy premium clothes at consignment shops. I like the quality of top brands but cannot--and will not--pay premium prices. There are certain brands I seek out and that fit me well.

I'd definitely say that my fashion is fast fashion & mid-range:

Mostly:
Nordstrom
Macy's
New York & Co.
Express

Some:
JCPenney
Zara

Tad of:
Forever 21

I can't even recall what my most expensive article of clothing is from...probably Bloomingdale's & it was on sale because I'm the type of shopper that likes to get better quality ON SALE.

Of these stores, Nordstrom is probably the most upscale. JCPenney has some items that can qualify as fast fashion but also carries some mid-range brands as well. Forever 21 is undeniably fast fashion.

Hmm... I might be straddling two categories according to your definitions- fast fashion and economy. Old Navy is across the street. Fred Meyer is down the road. Most of my clothing comes from those two places, or from Eddie Bauer outlet when we make our way a few hours north. I also do a lot of shopping for whatever brands fit and look good from Ross or Marshall's.

I don't understand the different categories. Mine is mostly WalMart, Joe Fresh, Marshalls/Winners, H&M, an odd time Zara.

OK. I think I average out in mid-range to maybe semi-premium. Right now I'm wearing Hanes underwear, a cotton shirt I think I bought at Target, Russell sweatpants, a North Face hoodie, and Smartwool socks. The Merrells are on and off.

I'm surprised there are no votes for Fast Fashion, considering the popularity of H&M and Forever 21. I would think Millennials and Gen Z would be in to that stuff.
