it's not. i guess i should have explained my point more. because gothninja basics cost so much, people have a real attachment to them -- ie: my rick owens tee is the best tee and no other tee comes close. i don't know if it's self-justification, or maybe it has some truth, but still.. not that different from other brands.

You're trying to say that the perceived value of those basics stems from the price tag and not from anything inherent in the garment, which just isn't true.  The guys spending $300 on t-shirts aren't all retards chasing more bling, they're willing to spend $300 on a t-shirt because that t-shirt has qualities that cheaper shirts don't.

Eh, the history of science tells us it's a little of both.

ahem. http://news.stanford.edu/pr/2008/pr-wine-011608.html

"Price tag can change the way people experience wine, study shows

In what will be music to the ears of marketers, the old adage that you get what you pay for really is true when it comes to that most ephemeral of products: bottled wine.

According to researchers at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and the California Institute of Technology, if a person is told he or she is tasting two different wines—and that one costs $5 and the other $45 when they are, in fact, the same wine—the part of the brain that experiences pleasure will become more active when the drinker thinks he or she is enjoying the more expensive vintage.

So many beverage studies. laugh.gif

One of the most memorable was the revelation that the flavoring agent for raspberry and grape (I think) are actually the same -- perceptions are determined by the color of the bottle.

When comparing the prices of two things of different prices but the same general "category" you should look at marginal cost of the upgrade rather than total cost.

Like, the improvement you get on $300 CP's over $50 Jack Purcells is what costs the extra $250 or whatever. It doesn't need to be 6x as awesome, it just needs to be $250 more awesome, if that makes sense.

i feel like that really applies more to people who are not experienced with wine though. if you are knowledgeable about wine, you won't take price into consideration when tasting.

they cost so much cuz its the name attached to the label, rick is already pretty well-known in the fashion world, hence the pricing and dwindling quality. However, im buying the t-shirt for a variety of reasons, fit, feel, design, and because I like the fact that they are going to deteriorate much faster than a hanes t-shirt.

re: Nahneun - yeah, that would be a worthwhile control. also the study was like 10 people, so it's probably meaningless tounge.gif
