I think that it has more to do with the poster's insecurity and immaturity. Many of these angry boys are unsure of their own judgement and probably ashamed of their blue ollar bakgrounds which is why they beome all hot and bothered over something as trivial as clothes. They have pretentions above their station in life and mistake superficial appearance for the real thing. Let's face it, even the best clothes are relatively cheap(and practially nothing when used
) while it would be impossible to fake your house, furniture, artwork, yacht and cars etc This is why they are so emotionally attached to their silly opinions on clothes and get as hysterical as a female whenever someone says something that disturbs their cherished little delusions about themselves.
Now, watch the reaction to what I wrote beause you'll find it quite illuminating and you'll learn more about these poseurs from their response than from my short paragraph but don't expect anything rational beause it will be all about their "feelings" and inflated Egos.
Watch the ad hominem attacks they'll begin with. Personally I just ignore people I think are fools and don't even care what anyone else thinks or says but just watch how upset these little boys get.
