And used footwear goes for dirt cheap on ebay these days, sounds more like an average deal to me... shit, I got my CDiems for cheaper than that (ok, that was lucky)... and I have 2 other pair of boots that retailed for over $750 that I picked up for under $100 in near-new condition.

I will put good money on the table that it would not go this way. I am in the same camp as the guy who said that it's better to just save up your pennies for something you really want than to settle for something and never be satisfied.

I have been pondering something today.

Will something put you off buying an item you otherwise like, f.ex. branding, affiliation, hype, celeb/blogger/random person wearing it

Nearly all of these examples are part and parcel of branding, though some are stronger factors than others, for different demographics. PR and visual advertising is probably the strongest factor influencing most Styleforum members. Direct visual advertising is a huge factor - lookbooks, print, and to a lesser degree, online advertising campaigns, look and feel of company websites, are big. Mentions in the appropriate periodicals are huge - that's what a good PR person gets you. Our tastes don't exist in vacuo. They are influenced by the produced environment.

If I don't like the brand aesthetic overall I will tune out even decent pieces that I could probably wear just fine...makes little sense other than the fact that I don't have time to comb through 80 things to find one that I might like.

I used to, but not anymore. A lot of brands that are not generally approved here put out good pieces every once in a while. The scenario in which I wouldnt buy it is if the brand i know for quality issues.

I know, that wasn't was I was thinking about.

I was more thinking lets say x celeb/blogger wears y item, (which leads to xxxxx amount of people buys the product), would that hold you back from buying the product etc.

or/and

Burberry = chav
Stone Island = Hooligan (they stopped selling Stone Island in the uk for while to get rid of the stigma
RL/Lacoste polo = "douchebag".

or/and

F.ex. I used to wear flex fit caps when I was younger (10+ years ago) at that time caps weren't as common, at least not here and they carried a stigma of being a hoodlum item and used to get pulled over more frequently when I was wearing it, than not and you couldn't get into certain places while wearing one, any other hat no problem, so I stopped wearing them, like that.

Moved to DTLA a few weeks ago. Was walking down 7th today and went right past you and your wife. Wanted to shout STANELYVANBUREN WE MEET FINALLY! And proceed to pretend to be Miran. But I didn't. Cool shirt.

 

Haha, awesome. Next time feel free to give me a shout.
