Idk man, do you really live your life in perpetual fear of offending someone? I guess if someone is truly offended that the soles of my shoes are white (hypothetically) they can go fuck themselves with their park avenues. I don't want to spend my money on shit I don't like just so I don't potentially hurt someone's feelings (?), and it's hardly like I'm showing up to a funeral in khakis and a polo.
I feel like this is an excuse used by MC types to justify owning really boring, expensive clothing.
