I spend about $125 at the most but have discovered some fantastic Charvets, etc. second-hand on eBay for around $40-50.

Why is it always the lower classes who are attached to these antiquated ideas about dress?Perhaps it may be that they never wore these things when they were kids and it holds a certain fascination for them that they associate with their betters. Who knows, but this attachment to the garb worn a few generations ago and for some silly reason is still lingering on as it dies a slow death is a sign of a prole background.

It's an improvement over wearing a noose around your neck or heavy fugly looking uncomfortable laceup wingtips (the official shoe of cubicle dwelling drones and accountants  lol) but it's not exactly what I meant.

A lot of the stuff that men still wear is leftover from the fugly looking Victorian age. The lower classes back then bought used clothes and wore it until it was threadbare and perhaps had 2 shoes in a lifetime that they kept resoling (labour was cheap). The reason that shoes, clothes etc were so heavy and uncomfortable is that the average lower or middle classes had few clothes and the few they had needed to wear like iron.

The tie is going to go the way of the hat within 5 years.And good riddance.

Troll lo lo

 

So we at MC spend too much money on antiquated clothing styles because of our blue collar background. What is your take on the folks in SW&D? Many there have far from cheap tastes, and they pursue a very different ideal.

 

Some of us really like ties. It's the easiest way to express yourself within very conservative parameters. Simple as that.

Seems that your problems go well beyond clothing.
