Like joining a hot rod forum and talking about how building, racing, and spending money on hot rods is a waste of time and the money could be better spent elsewhere. Generally, it comes from people who are either cheap or don't have the money or want to put in the extra time that the other poorer chaps do to make up for not spending much on clothes. edit: some energetic trolls should start joining hot rod forums and convince them to buy rick owens and raf simons. would be low to mild entertainment at least
To be fair, though, this is style forum, not expensive clothing forum. They are rarely one and the same. Check out Stanley Van Buren's recent fit pics and tell me that guy's not spending close to a thousand dollars to look like an extra from High Fidelity -- a look that can be and is achieved by college students / record store employees for pennies. People who believe a $200 cotton shirt from wings + horns is inherently, objectively better than the same plaid offerings from Eddie Bauer have simply been reading this forum too long.
