Russian men do this as well.

Lots of people do it, right? Lots of people wearing t shirts with big logos on it. Or even buying fake stuff.

Shoot, I don't touch them tags on my socks either.

Hmmm... It might be hard to fake an Allen Edmonds logo on a pair of shoes...

It's to the point now where I don't see a single LV handbag on a woman and ever think it's real.

Haven't you heard? LV is for secretaries.

Is there anyway to fact check the claims of career suicide if you out-dress people in the office? Maybe I'm skeptical because it sounds so absurd and I've never heard of a thing, but it seems far fetched IMO.

That's why I gave one to my wife.

To be sure, "career suicide" is a bit hyperbolic, but common-sense group psychology should be enough to convince you that the claim that it can cause resentment is at least plausible on the face of it.

I can understand catching flack for wearing Gucci loafers as an analyst, but not for wearing a suit that fits you better than your superiors'.

What about the psychology that dressing well sublet helps people's impressions of you?

I don't necessarily buy that. For any situation in which a person has actually changed their opinion for real personal reasons I bet you can find 50 that are just going with the flow.
