Nothing that can be bought at the mall is truly punk.

I agree...

UO is trendy, fake indie....(like hot topic is punk)

NoFear is not punk...there is not really such a thing as a punk brand. Its a self contradiction to state that. Same with anything indie that is not actually from an independent maker. Etsy creations are indie

Gap isn't trendy at all, more like classic casual in the Ralph Lauren, Nautica, J. Crew vein. And i remember back in hs Hot topic was for wannabee fake goth & grunge kiddies (if you were hardcore you shopped at thrift stores/salvation army.... but maybe that's dating me lol )

Zumiez & Vans also cater to surfer styles too. And Men's Warehouse carries off brands of suits/jackets, so they're more like Old Navy that a real designer store like Zegna or Boss.

And don't forget Banana Republic, which is the staple of the working world. And H&M, Zara, A/X, Guess & Diesel are all trendy or may be even hipster, depending on your interpretation. Metro park could be considered hipster but really it's the bane of good taste.

As far as TJ Maxx, I've found REAL designer labels for a fraction of retail, you just have to know which of the stores in your area carry the better merchandise, and know what you're looking at/for.
I got a fab pair of Ellen Tracy pumps last weekend that retailed for $150, bagged them for $40, and several Belldini tops that retailed for over $100 each for $20 per, bought 6 of them!

I don't shop at any of those stores and NONE of those that you listed under "designer" is truly designer. Designer is Chanel, Valentino, YSL, Marc Jacobs.

Then you have lower end designers like Nanette Lepore etc

These are designers shopbop.com

What you listed there is a bunch of junk, clothes for teens and people who shop at the "mall". Mostly
mall crap like Talbot's, etc is anything BUT designer.

You know, I've gotten Chanel boots at TJ Maxx, and I just bought a Michael Kors top there.
The previous poster was speaking of haute couture, but there are plenty of real designers out there that can be found at the discount stores, at a fraction of retail.

Updated list for the ones I know

Hot Topic- retards wanting to dress punk rock but don't know how too
No Fear- retards wanting to dress trendy but don't know how too
PacSun- retards wanting to dress like they go to the beach but they really never do
Zumiez- retards wanting to dress like they know how to skate
Vans- old retards wanting to dress younger
Anchor Blue- retards wanting to dress cool but have no clue what the hell cool even is
Tilly's- retards wanting to dress trendy and paying way too much for it
Old Navy- retards wanting to dress circa 2001

When it really comes down to it, if you are shopping for clothes at a mall...you are just trying to fit in. The only thing I really buy at malls are jeans and shoes. And yes, I made fun of myself because I wear Vans alot.

If you want to dress punk, go to a record store.
If you want to dress surfer, go to a surf store.
If you want to dress like everyone else, you go to the mall.

The two worst are Hot Topic and Archor Blue. Hot Topic is owned by The Gap, shocker! Archor Blue is Old Navy Version 2.0. Extremely bland boring clothes with a crappy logo for twice the price.
