I don't even understand the whole wearing something just as a status symbol thing. I don't own a Burberry scarf because I think they're ugly.
At least this is a good reason for not buying one. Â I guess my point is that you can't always worry about the whole status thing, because no matter what you buy in this society, there is always bound to be some stigma or status label attached to it. Â And this is not because the object itself has status, but because we, society, have chosen to give it some status. I do understand what you are saying though Mike about the sorority girls, and it is just unfortunate that we have people like them around. The best thing to do is wear yours with the enjoyment of wearing something because you like it, and not because you think it shows how much your parents bought you or whatever. I think it all comes down to the person wearing it as well.
