    Question Which brand it is?

    I bought a pair of shoes. My friend asked me "Which brand it is?" . I find it a vague statement. I think it should be "Which brand it is of?"
    I am confused. Need help with this.

    Re: Whicj brand it is?

    It should be "What brand are they?"
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    What brand were they? also sounds OK to me.
