I LOATHE logos, whether they're high-end or just say "Old Navy" or whatever. I don't like designs and patterns on my clothes at all. I generally wear very simple, plain basics. If I embellish, it's with texture (like a ribbed turtleneck, or linen weave, or chenille or angora fuzziness), or with accents like scarves and jewelry. But I like my clothing plain and simple and uncluttered with logos and words and the like. My boyfriend's stepmom got me a Coach signature monogrammed handbag for Christmas, which was very nice of her, but if she knew me better, she'd know that I don't like logos and could have saved her money. I think they just end up looking cheap, even when I know for a fact that the item isn't.

Kohl's carries a cheaper line of 7's and Vigoss jeans, which is designer but Kohl's carries the lower-end stuff.

Most of the affordable designer wear (Polo Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, A|X, and so on) are made in Asia, often by the same companies that make cheaper clothes. The quality is better but not 4-5 times better than cheaper clothes.
Zara isn't considered cheap clothing...

the designer's are also what all the cheaper clothing is copied from, the ideas trickle down as does the price and quality all the way to wallmart.

They want to show off to the other moms. Why do some moms buy a $700 custom stoller??? Same reason.

In most of Western Europe it is. It's definitely not expensive.

They're not made by the same company. 7's and Seven for All Mankind are not the same.

The Old Navy stuff I've bought always falls apart quickly. Never had this problem with Polo, Izod, Tommy Bahama (even when bought second hand).

Another key difference in some higher end clothing is "cut". WalMart stuff (which I own, too) is cut for large, chubby people. If you have no figure then you will like it. But for people who work out or watch their weight, WalMart stuff is too baggy and wide.

Old Navy, GAP, WalMart, Target, and other cheap clothing lines are only intended to last ONE SEASON. At that price point they are considered disposable clothing.
