    Hate me ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Giant,regarded by some as as boring but I just seem to like their non showy,solid dependability.

    Alfa Romeo for completely the opposite reasons to above!

    Adidas – I dont have to try them on
    Converse – “”
    Old el Paso – Nom nom nom

    It’s utter scum like you what is making this country fall apart.

    Yeti
    but not Skoda Yeti

    Cosworth (and by association Marcos and Costin)

    Singular (but not IF et al)

    Specialized (because my Pitch is absolutely nuts!)

    Boss suspension (and Cane Creek/ohlins, simple suspension done very very well, rather than Fox who I’ve never liked as a company as the shocks always seem 2nd best in the market and the forks had those issues)

    LOCO (always suport the little guy, but not superstar for obvious reasons)

    Alfa Romeo – never owned one (closest was a Fiat Coupe) but I like their styling, heritage and the old ones are very cool.
    Oakley – like the styling, I perceive the quality to be good.
    Amazon – Their stuff just works really well – One-click, recommendations, Kindle.
    Gore – Great bike wear, everything I’ve bought has been well made and well thought out.
    Stowa watches – made to order, not stupid expensive, interesting history, not many people have heard of them.
    Ball watches – can be stupid expensive, interesting history, not many people have heard of them.

    Cotic, cause it made the bike that I currently ride which genuinely could be the last bike I buy (unless I break it).
    Endura
    Levis

    There actually aren’t that many others; most of the others I do like but have something against.
    Renault: maker of the most desirable car (Clio V6); also made the Avantime and can’t get build quality right.
    Sony: wonderfully designed products, dreadful software.
    Adidas: just not keen.
    Kelloggs: meh
    …and so on.

    In response to the barge pole thread, what are the brands that attract you (for whatever reason)?

    1) Volvo (Nordic reliability; safety)
    2) Trek (just solid bikes)
    3) Shell Oil (I had a lego tow truck set when I was a kid with a Shell logo; I also like the colours)
    4)Jaegermeister (just like the German, foresty image)

    Hugo Boss; some nice understated clothes (some not!)
    Panasonic; no idea why
    Dakine; passion for sports
    Yeti; I don’t even own one
    Red bull; they sponsor nutters
    Cognation; seem to do what they do because they love it

    My top ones would be

    1. BA (but I am paid to :lol:, but i am very proud to work there and in the face of crisis I know of no better company)
    2. Audi (I really don’t understand all the hatred – I still love mine after 5 years – I like their understated elegance and their after sales service is excellent – A3/A4/A6 sensible cars that are rewarding to own over the long term)
    3. NAIM (for some reason once they have secured your pennies you are then trapped for life, although NAIM for Bentley seems a bit pants)
    4. Specialized (just good albeit ordinary bikes)
    5. Apple (for their Agile product innovation and how can any company rise from its ashes to become so ingrained in modern culture)
    6. Nationwide – a mutual capable of taking on the banking giants in retail financial services. Never the best rates or products but always competitive and easy to find and buy. CRM is a bit pants mind.

    Audi, for their understated elegance.

    FedEx, for their logo.

    Slough council, for their constant uphill struggle to make Slough happy.

    Spoon I’m 6’3″

    that’s not what your mum said :p

    Apple
    Cannondale
    Yeti
    Swobo
    Ciocc (also Colnago, though Ciocc is a bit less obvious)
    Omega
    Salsa
    Harley Davidson (yes, I know theyre not cool, yes, I realise that people automatically think ‘mid life crisis’, and yes, I own one, and a Buell, which kinda makes me doubly ****, but I still love ’em).

    Orange Bikes – Because of the spotty tops in the early 90’s
    Tag Heuer – Always wanted one, now finally have one
    Tissot – My first nice watch for my 18th birthday was one, I’ve bought a couple more since
    Maxxis bike tyres – Not tried a bad one yet.
    Thorbridge Brewery – Every beer they make I could drink gallons of
    Oakley – I just like them
    Puma football boots – My dad always wore them and I have followed him on this

    Superstar- not had an issue with a single product (except one ๐Ÿ™‚ )
    HTC – I can make my phone my own, unlike the leading ‘smart’phone.
    Charge Bikes – Great brand, great image, great bikes of which I have two.
    Vegemite – I’ve seen the light

    Because they’re both build amazing original bikes.

    not really drawn to labels as such, but Oakley do make brilliant glasses.
    and I’m partial to my VW s too

    Because they’re driven by nobbers who don’t know how to drive, or indicate… the cars are lovely, the drivers are dicks.

    See how middle class I am.

    …the cars are lovely over-priced, over-engineered, over-refined and on the whole quite dull, the drivers are dicks.
