You seriously think they actually pay for any of there clothes? 90% stolen, 10% market knock offs of the real thing.
Having worked in enough Chav-targetted shops (USC sell Henri Lloyd and Lacoste, its like Chavvy Mecca), i know how much gets stolen, and how easy it is

Langeveldt: I of course blame their parents.. and unchecked immigration!
GingerFurball: He's Austrian, they tend to produce the odd ****ed up individual
Burgey: Be careful dealing with neighbours whose cars don't have wheels but whose houses do.
Uppercut: Maybe I just need better strippers
My usual attire is an old tatty pair of Adidas trainers, jeans, t-shirt - more often than not plain black, and leather jacket. The flat cap sometimes accompanies.

Band t-shirts or sports related shirts and blue jeans as my usual attire. Dark dress pants and shirts with cool designs (no matter what brand) when I'm out.

I would say that a significant proportion of the clothes worn by chavs are either
A) Directly stolen by themselves, or by others on their behalf
B) Bought from someone knowing full well they are not legitimate (eg a market stall or someone in the pub etc)
C) Counterfeit clothes. (sounds odd saying counterfeit and not meaning money, but it still applies)
Having worked in such places, i've seen the numbers of want to be shoplifters, and professional theives, who do this, and its huge. Given i worked in the Trafford Centre, it was a thieves paradise. If we got through a day without finding 10 broken off tags hidden around the store, then it was a good day. Thats not including those who sneaked it all out in foil lined bags (stopping the need to rip the tag off, as the foil, well, foiled, the alarms), those we detterred through security, and those we caught in the act. I've seen a security video of a group of 4 who hit Selfridges for half an hour, just clearing thousands of pounds worth of stock out.... Half an hour sounds like a long time shoplifting in one shop, but thats how good they were at it, first time i saw the video i wasnt told who the shoplifters were, took me 20 minutes to guess.
So yeah, the clothes are more valuable, but some are stolen, so cost little to nothing, and the money they saved on the stolen stuff can be put towards buying expensive stuff. (like trainers... absolute nightmare to steal.)
I have one pair of jeans, 1 pair of tracky bottoms, quite a few random t-shirts, a pair of shorts, a pair of asics trainers and a grey hoody.
That's basicaly all i wear.
