MNG (by Mango) Now At JCPenney Department Store

BradleyDay Trips9 Comments

Now, I don’t really care all that much about ‘high fashion’ or brands, but this caught my eye because the first time I’d ever heard of Mango, or it’s MNG line of clothes, was in Singapore, where it’s apparently very desirable.  Singapore in general is very fashion conscious and the malls are filled with high end boutiques.

MNG (by Mango) is now available at JCPenney

I developed a particular distaste for Mango, not because of how the clothes look (I’ve never even been in the store, but the stuff in the online JCPenney catalog looks nice), but because we lived with a roommate during our first year in Singapore that talked about the brand non-stop.  I’m sure you know the type of person I’m talking about.  She wasn’t happy unless she was telling you about how great and fashionable Mango (or some other brand) is, and about how many items she has, like I gave a damn.  It got to the point that when we’d pass a Mango store in the mall, either myself or my wife would say, “Look! It’s Mango!”  The reply would usually be, “Fuck Mango.”  Like I said, not because the brand is necessarily bad, but because we were tired of hearing about it and associated it with a bitch we didn’t like.

Anyway, in Singapore, and I presume other parts of Asia, Mango is a very desirable brand.  If you have Mango stuff, you’re cool.  I suppose that’s just not the case in the US, though.  Maybe it just never caught on the same way it did in Singapore?  Mango has a few stores here and there in NYC and on the West Coast, but I just don’t get that same ‘exclusive’ feel that I did before, knowing that Mango is carried at department store now.

Regardless, if you’re from Asia and you were wondering how to get Mango clothes in the US, you can get it from your nearest JCPenney now, or just order directly from the JCPenney online catalog.

Mango is a clothing brand from Spain where it's being marketed as something like The Gap. But here, and I guess the rest of Southeast Asia, it's considered a high end brand because their prices aren't exactly cheap. I usually buy during sale season. But lately, I've seen a lot of Mango Outlet Stores where the prices are even cheaper because the clothes are from seasons ago.

Actually, those prices don't seem that bad to me. The last time I bought a branded t-shirt in a department store, 2 years ago, it was about 20 bucks. A pair of Nautica jeans cost me 60. So these prices seem to be average. The t-shirt and jeans weren't on sale, though. Knowing what I know now, I'd just wait for a sale. The money I saved could get me something nice, like new socks! ^_^

I have mango stuff, therefore, I am cool!

The price in the picture there looks scary though. I usually wait till the sale season to buy them.
