Brand preferences for clothing?

Does anyone have a preferred brand that they tend towards when buying clothing?

I'm quite a fan of Sugoi's products. I own Sugoi tights, bib tights, and a jersey, and I love all of them. They're really comfortable.

Anyone else have a preference?

I like Giordana and Pearl Izumi except for their crap gloves that always delaminate.

I've become a big fan of the BlackBottom line for my bibs and shorts. Heavy, thick fabric and faux leather chamois.

For my commutin wear, whatever the current offering in Starter, Athletic Works and Fruit Of The Loom at Wally-World.

Etxe-Ondo by far the best bibs I've worn. I like
Garneau jerseys but brand is not as important in
them for me.

I think Voler is way more comfortable than PI, and it's a ton cheaper. I bought a bunch of shorts and tossed my PI and Sugoi stuff..

Does Voler guarantee their shorts as well as PI?

I'm partial to PI and Sugoi, particularly if they are on clearance.

I've always liked Descente, but it can be pricey.

Castelli

I love their yPro3 padding for bibs and shorts and they also make outstanding outerwear garments

I love Mountain Equipment coop. They make sober looking clothing (as in no flashy coolors or humongous company logos) that work well, and aren't too expensive.

I got a freebie jersey from Gearlink.com when I bought something else. It's made by BCM and it's my new favorite jersey: it's cut really well, the fabric is really light and breathable, and it has a 3/4 zipper. I'm going to look for more BCM jerseys when I can.

UnderArmour. The stuff is expensive, but not as bad a bike-specific clothing. The ColdGear shirt ($50) will get me down to 20F with only a nylon shell over it. The TurfGear ($35) is great for spring/fall. I use the HeatGear ($25) in the summer. All of the stuff is great at wicking. I have never seen it on sale.

I have four Performance brand long sleeve jersey, two MTB jersey by them, and also a RaceFace short sleeve, REI short sleeve, MTB short and three road short, a PI long sleeve, and a Sugoi MTB short. I like the Performance stuff because they are inexpensive, simple in design and are comfortable. I like the REI road shorts because they last a long time and is made well (their high end road short), and the other stuff, the PI and RaceFace was bought on sale and they are more for the personal poser look.

Specialized, Primal wear and Terry shorts and jerseys(primal wear jerseys just look cool). I like assos but can't afford them, and I can get them at cost. I'll never waste money again on campy shorts, they suc'd so bad I gave them away.

Assos for bibs/jerseys etc ...the weakess of the dollar have made them silly expensive now...but they are the best with the glaring exception of their gloves

Defeet for socks/base layers

Pearl izumi... their amfib glove is great for winter riding or skiing (agree about the lameness of other gloves). they have a nice rain jacket and leg/arm warmers

nalini makes some nice stuff as well

sidi for shoes
