‘brand’
A brand is a product that has its own name, and is made by a particular company. You usually use brand to talk about things that you buy in shops, such as food, drink, and clothes.

‘make’
Don't confuse brand with make. You use make to talk about the names of products such as machines or cars, which last for a long time.

Be careful
Don't use the plural form of a noun after brand of or make of. For example, don't talk about ‘a make of vehicles’. Say ‘a make of vehicle’.
Be careful
Don't talk about the ‘mark’ of a product. For example, don't say ‘What mark of coffee do you drink?’ Say ‘What brand of coffee do you drink?’ Don't say ‘What mark of car do you drive?’ Say ‘What make of car do you drive?’
