Duh...It's all in the name!

White Stuff, a popular apparel chain in London, has a rather interesting logo.

Perhaps having a Chinese character does add to the appeal of its clothes... somehow. Who can forget the 女力 (loosely translated as Female Power) tattoos sported on Spice Girls back then?

It's a strange choice having 衣 (literally means clothes) as its brand. It's like opening a restaurant and calling it "Food".

But then again, who cares so long that it sells?

Have you come across any interesting store names?

Yeah and everything with Chinese or Japanese characters are more exotic and sells better in London too! Strange hur??

I concur with sher. If that shop is gonna open here in M'sia or Sg, nobody will take a 2nd look at it. But the shop is in London! Names that come with an unfamiliar character to the locals gives an exotic feel to it.

My sentiments exactly! There's this Jap restaurant called 'Wasabi' in London.... gosh... It's like having a American burger chain called 'Ketchup'! :p

Hey I was thinking along the lines of calling a bakery Roti and cafe Kopi?!
Original hur?
