Well to be fair, this is not normal behaviour. Just like with everything, there are various degrees of sanity in discussing trivial topics like clothes. Some people spend all of their earnings (or more) on clothes or other hobbies and become clinically obsessed - sometimes to the point of filling their entire mind (or physically, their small 2-bedroom apartment) with the object of their obsessions. We've encountered a handful of clinical cases over the last few years, and with 70,000+ SF members I'd say it would be odd if we had not. That guy is clearly nuts - everyone knows it, even those who throw peanuts to the monkey to keep themselves entertained.
