The conclusions sound pretty accurate to me, though I don't know why they needed a study to figure this stuff out. In this context, the actual definition of "quality" is not important. It's the concept of "quality" being important, that is important. Essentially, the Millenials are just more evolved consumers. Congratulations, dudes.
Yeah exactly. That's why I was wondering which assumptions they contradict. Thought the results were the assumptions.
I mentioned quality because it's a loaded term. There's a value judgment built into the word. Was the previous generation not willing to pay more for "quality"? I bet if surveyed they'd say they would. So what does it mean that 81% of people surveyed say they'll pay more for it? And like you said, it's about the perception of quality. But in reality the term is kinda nebulous to the average consumer. It's something a lot of people talk about but when cornered they can't always articulate what it means. That result doesn't really tell me much.
i managed to finish it but honestly I can't really remember what its conclusions were. And I'm pretty good at remembering that kinda stuff.

Did you kop ? It's a lot of dangly leather straps for what will essentially look like a carabiner keyring peeking out with a jacket over it (the two front straps would also possibly annoy the fuck out of me when walking).
Nope. I figured 500 bones was too much for what will essentially look like a carabiner with some extra straps hanging out. The s.o. also gave it a very stern "no." and since she usually supports my other questionable fashion choices I figured she was justified.
After that I showed her the Facetasm one and she had the same response :(
I'll be sure to kop BBS and just start wearing it without saying anything...
Also! Thanks for the help, guys who chimed in about rabbit fur. I'm seeing that it's really just a disposable item with a short wear-life which is disheartening.
Trying to pack only a carry-on for a 4.5 day trip to NYC that involves 1) a wedding and 2) a restaurant with a dress code is not conducive to nice fits. Also, being busy the whole day leading up to said dinner reservation makes life planning more complicated as I won't be able to head back and change beforehand.
Textured black trousers: Dries, Zam, Lanvin, tons of SZ type brands
Eschew the carryone and bring a garment bag. Hang up one suit, two shirts, one sportscoat and a pair of dark jeans, one additional pair of pants (slim flannels are easy) one sweater, and a pair of suit-worthy shoes, and you are pretty much set. Fold up a few tees, some underwear, and socks and put them in the side pocket. Wear some neutral boots (I prefer chukkas, since they are super comfortable on a plane ride).
