Wearing Good Clothes or Branded Clothes:
It is not necessary that branded clothes are of quality and are among the good ones. There are many other manufacturers that produce the finest clothing than any other brands. The people are shifting toward brands just because the brands are using marketing tactics to fool the population. Are you one of that fool?
There was a time when making good outfits for the Eid was trending regardless of the brand. The clothes used to be according to our traditional values and fulfilled the basic need of clothing. The basic need of clothing is to cover oneself and become presentable but now it’s more like showcasing. People need to understand that they should wear good clothes for the Eid, wearing brand is not necessary at all.
Expensive Branded Clothes Feeding Your Ego:
These branded clothes are expensive to purchase and most of our population cannot afford it but again thanks to marketing tools which has injected the virus in our population. The branded clothes feed the ego of the buyer but let me tell you one thing, their ego never gets satisfied.
Every year, several brands run in the rat race to capture the market but a few of them become market challenger and one becomes the market leader.

Clothing is a need but branded clothes are our want. We should understand the difference between our needs and our wants. There are ultimate desires but it is better to stick to our needs. Even if we have an excess amount of money then fulfill the needs of others rather than spending it on our useless wants.
