CLOTHES MAKE THE MAN OR WOMAN
Different type of clothes can make people feel confident, athletic, important and comfortable. Name brands like Gucci, Ralph Lauren, and Versaci make people feel important.

There are times we need to got out and splurge on ourselves to feel important. We all need to feel important at one time or another.
Nike, Adidas and Converse are athletic sportswear. We wear these brand names to feel athletic about ourselves. For example if we put on a Chicago Bulls basketball jersey, which the team is sponsored by Nike, and a pair of retro Jordan’s, which is also a Nike product, we feel that not only do we look good but we can play just as good as we feel. This is an example of having a confident feeling about the clothing we have on and about ourselves.
