Is spiffychic an appropriate name to use for a clothing brand.

This online store sells clothes for young people.

Thanks, Arun

    We cannot advise you whether the name is appropriate for a clothing brand, but we can tell you something about the elements of that compound, in isolation and in combination, and then you can decide for yourself. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Jan 11 at 12:19
  • The word spiffy is the slang of a former era, a word great-grandpa used for his new bicycle back when he was a teenager. So its use in 2019 might have a "retro" (nostalgic) vibe, or it might be regarded as old-fashioned or "hokey". Moreover, although spiffy might be used to describe an article of clothing, or a person's appearance in a particular outfit, it is not used as a direct descriptor of a person, as is the case with "spiffychic". The word connotes "girls in smart-looking outfits" but it is the sort of name you might find in a TV comedy sketch about teens at the local mall. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Jan 11 at 12:27
  • ++++1 for "hokey". Obsolete and silly round about 1935. – Michael Harvey Jan 11 at 14:00
  • @Tᴚoɯɐuo: Thank you so much for providing your valuable input. I was told the same. I would prefer to change the name for the clothing store. – Arun 2 days ago
