Would You Buy Designer Clothes For Your Kid?

I know some people would label me as mean and stingy but i really do not see myself buying designer clothes(not high street labels) for my kid.I do not have kids yet and i do want to give my children the best that i can afford when they start coming but i cannot see myself buying a £300 pair of shoes for my 6 yr old. A friend of mine wanted to buy a £80 polo t-shirt for an 18 month old baby,which i argued with her was not necessary.I will of course buy good quality clothes for my kids but why should i waste £80 to buy a shirt he might not wear in the next 6 months because its ralph lauren?

I personally see clothing as need you must fulfill for your children but designer clothing is another thing.I believe kids should have something to look forward to as i remember looking forward to starting work to be able to afford some of the luxuries i now give myself.My mom was very nice by introducing me and my siblings to stuff like perfumes at a young age but she just bought us the normal ones like Avon so we would imbibe the culture of smelling nice.I remember asking why the ones she bought us were different from hers and she always said 'this is what i can afford when you start working or saving your pocket monet you can get designer ones'.I remember how elated how i was when i saved my pocket money and got my first bottle of cool water by davidoff.Ever since i have started working i now appreciate the scarifices i have to make to buy myself nice things.So i believe if my child likes designer labels,wait till you can afford it with your money.

I believe buying kids designer labels at a tender age is a waste of money.Thats my opinion.So what do you think?

Please watch interview with Fleece Johnson, an inmate on MSNBC.

His common phrase: I LOVE BOOTY

His definition of booty: Men / boys who sag their pants / trousers

His plans for them: he'll wax the booty no matter what. So you can give it up the easy way or the hard way.

_______________

If you watch that show, you'll think twice about sagging your pants. A word is enough for the wise.

Yes i will, i don't mind dressing up my daughter with the most expensive clothes. So what is the use of having money then, if I can not buy lovely things for my child.

KarmaMod ,

   I dont have a problem with her shopping for him - he looks sharp all the time.

Now imagine, if she's doing this for a boy, what'll she do for a baby girl??

My fear is when we have a daughter, them I'm in trouble cos I'm sure we both agree the malls here are made for females - so maybe my wife'll start living in the malls shopping for her girl.

KarmaMod,

well, a lot of my son's clothes were bought from these stores and I know they are at times havily discounted. Again not all the times but surely at times. She will not buy if the prices are high

You want make I scan receipts show you??  because my wife always makes sure she shows me the receipts or I go vex  - she too dey buy clothes for the boy.

Anyway, even high end stores like Macys and Nordstroms even have crazy sales at times - you just have to get lucky to be there then. Or buy the local newspaper and cut out the coupons. I'm talking from wifely experiences

But NY pricing can be different from other parts of the country though

I do buy for my kids, it is my pleasure, i am that type that like good clothes so i find it hard not going in a mark shop once in a while, my kids best mark is [b]IKKS [/b]for kids but they are mostly used for occassion like sunday service, birthday in school and when we go for vacation, but as for everyday use i buy in a normal shop. This doesn't stop me from saving for their future.

I have 3 kids and I will not buy designer clothes.

I buy quality clothes from NEXT clothing, Marks & Spencer and others.

Kids outgrow their footwear & clothing like no man's biz.

Kids' clothes are expensive compared to adults anyway.

I am an investor and I don't waste money on liabilities.

I dont look for designers. I just buy for I believe I should buy for my kids. Thankfully, my kids are not bothered about such things.

My first told me he liked a jacket recently that my wife bought for a new arrival here - the jacket was from primark and I bought it for my son. He likes it

I wud wear my kids good and comfy clothes but wud invest a better part of my money on their future ie savings and their education rather than buying a £100 shirt for them Xcept though on special occasions like birthday or performing extraordinarily well in school.

Designer clothes are over rated, there are good brands out there, that are not designers but are quality but at a reduced price, i 'd prefer to buy quality not necessarily designers, can save money that way and spend it on more worthwhile projects.

Exactly ayosomethin, I wouldnt buy them designer clothes, but nice clothes. I dont see a reason to buy designer clothes when they grow fast and grow out of them, to me its a waste of money. Its like buying them a bunch of toys that will only end up in the closet or broken.

Asides the waste of money, kis=ds grow very fast and can outgrow cloths in a short time, so Y bother to buy such expensive outfit and in the next 6 months, the child cant wear it. There are so many lovely, not to expensive cloths children can wear and look nice.
