I used to like the slim suits trend, but finally my eyes opened to the truth - the surgically...

While I don't quite buy the OP theory, my problem with expensive shoes/clothes that there are rapidly diminishing returns to price. While I obviously don't like the "payless shoes"/basse/ecco type of merchandise, up to 300$ shoes are of perfectly fine quality and comfort.

No one will trust the handkerchief you pull out of your interior pocket or pants pocket...
