 This is my impression of CBD environments in Chicago (read: the real world) as well. Except here you'll see more horrible solid pink and solid gold ties.
Touché.
 Agreed. I have an old pair of cowboy boots, though not in an exotic skin. I used to be a competitive shooter in the Single Action (i.e.: cowboy guns) genre and I used them to shoot in. Still have my old hat, too. Outside of that I've never worn them. 
 One of my former professors was from Emory. His style was no indicator for me, however, because he is a German national! Nice observation with the tucking issue.  By the way, if they made those shoes in a U of L logo I'd probably buy them, as much as I hate to admit it.  FWIW, I don't particularly care for that belt, though I have seen exotic skins on many in the south.
 You've never seen a n00b bourbon drinker, have you? 
And then you convinced yourself, for some reason, that you were wrong. That doesn't mean everyone need do that, nor that you were right to convince yourself of it. Anyway, let's not go too deeply into this. I'm not trying to prove it, just to toss out some food for thought. Namely, that just because you convince yourself that something is worthwhile doesn't necessarily mean it is for everyone. 
 Why is your son wrong and you are right, though? (As an aside, I did actually think Anna Karenina was garbage)
You know, I remember reading an article in some academic journal about how people tend to value things that took some effort to acquire. Let's say you were accepted into a social club. If you got your acceptance letter in the mail and that was it, chances are you would not value it as much as a club in which you had to go through some kind of ceremony, task, or hazing to get into. It wouldn't matter if the club that you only got the letter from was more expensive, more...
Would anyone like to fund a "research" trip to find out? I will selflessly volunteer to be the test subject wherein I will spend 2 weeks in the Caribbean touring the beaches and cantinas. I will dutifully report back on what everyone is wearing (and drinking) via my cellphone as I bask in the sunlight.
If you have to train yourself to like something, how good is it?
