you're right on both of those points
on the other hand, the workwear/heritage trend has at least made people aware of the qualitative differences between different items who otherwise couldn't tell the difference or didn't care before the heritage trend came about
even some of my close friends, who are mostly blue-collar, working-class people, the type who would scoff at paying x amount of dollars for a specific item regardless of supposed quality, have become interested in shopping for quality and now think of certain items as something to invest into and take care of rather than something to cheap out on, and i think this is a good thing overall.
