[Misc] To what brands are you loyal?

Never understand why people say “I buy cheap”.

Okay. I guess if you’re really broke but buying cheap costs more in the long run because you have to keep replacing.

Better to buy an expensive shirt that lasts for 10 years than endless cheap ones.

You’re better off buying quality from a charity shop than tat from the high street. I’ve found some zingers at Emmaus, Sally Army, BHF etc .

I used to think Heinz beans until they were subbed for Branston during lockdown & I haven't gone back.
Technics turntables
I used to think Timberland for walking boots until I was left with no other choice but Gelert waterproof ones (again during lockdown), Gelert have lasted longer, less than half the price, more comfortable & are far more waterproof. I do a lot of walking.
Trespass for warm, waterproof coat.
I was going to say Cadburys for chocolate until I realised that I've been quite happily munching on a box of celebrations!

Yorkshire Tea. Everything else is just shit in comparison.

Sketchers trainers. Found them the most comfortable.

DeWalt. Only because I bought my first cordless as a DeWalt but then got all the other tools to be able to swap batteries. They have been pretty good and their cordless nail guns are quality.

Whole Earth crunchy peanut butter. No sugar, not diarrhea sloppy and lots of crunch.

Dell computers. Had many over the last 20+ years and only ever had one crash and burn on me.

McVities digestives. No other biscuit ever graces my cuppa and all other brands just don't cut it.

I've been buying Claudios shirts for over 20 years now. DNA Groove. Brexit has really helped there as he's an Italian in Spain, but I must have top notch pure cotton or cotton/linen shirts. 😎

I’m not a big fan of Heinz Baked Beans. The Waitrose own ones are lovely.

M&S is reliable - but the quality definitely is nowhere near what it used to be. I seem to go through socks more often than waiting for a new pack at Christmas.
