People do not care about clothes - Page 4

This is not the same case as many people do not drive and the others do not drive 20hours per day... 95% of people are dressed at least 18h per day. Doesn't it make a huge difference with the car?
You obviously have never been to LA, or to most of the US.

Some BB GF suits are made by Cantarelli and they were previously made by Isaia as well. BTW, isn't facconnalle owned by Nordstrom?

Yes, I feel superior to you because I actually make a living and contribute to society, while you seem to have a profound lack of shame in leaching off the charity of others (i.e. people who work and pay taxes so that you can sit on your lazy ass.  If I was French, I would like to have the privilege of kicking you in the ass every single day for my pains.)

Is it not possible to find good stuffs at good price without spending your life in shops if you just know where ans when to go ? Don't forum take you time you could spend to do anythingelse (like searching bargain if you complain not having TIME to find good prices?) ?
My point was that despite having a job, and posting on the forum (generally more useful posts than your "I bought 10 faconnable suits on sale.  Too bad none of them fit,) I can still find better bargains than you will probably ever be able to.  Ironically, I actually acquired this knowledge indirectly because I had a job... My other (more important) point was that there are reasons people like and buy Boss other than ignorance.  But that concept seems to have gone over your head.  Maybe you should sit on your leopard skin bed in your big ass suits and ponder that mystery of life. Yes, I know that Albert Goldberg line of suits.  As I stated before, it is a little better than Boss, but in the same category, and since you mention it, far inferior to BB Golden Fleece suits, which are made in Brooklyn by Martin Greenfield, a terrific tailor and manufacturer.
Which society? The same one for which you are just  on more chinese in their country and which will find that a chinese  fucking their doughter is  shamefull for them ? May be if I had a poor self esteem of myself, if I was a complexed chinese, I would have the need of making  competition with people like you do. But I am nor complexed nor chinese... And even if I was I wouldn't try to compete with an unemployed (as unemployed are losers for you) but with people who are succesfull. How can you feel so superior when you work and do not make more money than me? Is your poor job all life? Why am I so important for you? Why do you feel so involved in my life? Why do you always come on the fact I do not work when we talk about clothes? May be because you have no argument than saying that you are better than me... Starting rubbish several time instead of one will not make them the truth... Were the Faconnable suit you saw fused?

How many people from NY use their car everyday? People who use their car, use them more than their clothes?

Whoa Ernest - We don't need any racial epithets thrown around here. Let's keep this a civil discourse. Bradford P.S. However, speaking of racial stereotypes, I can't resist one joke that Jay Leno told a few years ago. "They started the Tour de France this morning. Unfortunately, when they fired the starting pistol, half of the country surrended to Germany."

What would it be if my posts were interesting...? You would spend all your life here, telling them like poestry? When I do not like a subject, I do not reply and do not try to remember it. Strange to see you take part so often and with so mucn energy to subjects you do not like. Have you so few things to say to be obliged to spend to much time on my subject ? Don't you have the feeling to be ridicilious ?

You can not talk about a society like US without taking in account the racial problem. He said he was proud to be usefull for his society. I ask what did THIS society think about him as a chinese guy with a white girl? If I felt proud to belong to a society for which I want to work just to say I am usefull, I wouldn't do it for a society which would reject me and reconize me as a chinese parasit as soon as I may be less usefull...

Does civil mean for you to attack and judge the personal life of someone instead of being able to argue about the subject of the thread? Does civil mean for you saying you feel superior to somebody you do not know just because this guy is unemployed while you have the job of the average Joe ? Not for me. I do not work. This is my problem. This is not shamefull for me otherwise I wouldn't have told about that. So speaking all the time about that as if it was an argument which can prove that any rubbish one said is the truth is ridiculious. What is the link between what I do (or not do for a living) and this thread?

Wow, lots of misconceptions in this post... almost too many to address... I'll let LA Guy take this one for himself but one thing about American "society" is that it generally takes very good care of their newer elements (a fact that many Americans don't necessarily agree with) My grandparents immigrated here in the 80s and became citizens in due course, and receive social security like any other citizens of their age. I can give many other examples, some not quite as nice (health care issues in CA, especially) Also, multi-cultural relationships are fairly common here, esp in the NE. I find the entire epithet quite hypocritical considering the millions of SE asians with partial french ancestry, but that's another point altogether.

I agree. What about a country that in significant part supports National Front candidates in its local and national elections? Your comments only reveal your own racism and xenophobia. What can we expect from someone who does not disdain to travel?

I just wanted to say that for many (if not the majority) of members of the society for which he was SO proud to work, he was only a chinese, who most of people would prefer not to see around them... Remember the riots of LA... I just have to find a job as my only defect to the society's eyes (represented by GUY) is to be unemployed. What must Guy (as a chinese) do to be accepted as much as he would like to be by society? Wear nice suit? Make a fortune?

The riots of LA were about Chinese? umm... I'm speechless (and that doesn't happen too often) Last time I checked, the riots were about Rodney King and Reginald Denny and black/white race issues, not about Chinese, and if you were discussing the Asian shopkeepers that were defending their shops during the riots, they were Korean. Perhaps you're talking about the riots in Indonesia? BTW, ernest, thanks for speaking for 290 million Americans by saying you would rather not see Chinese around... obviously, for the most part that isn't the sentiment that's felt here. I'm still quite amused by the statement considering the fact that you're not from the US. If you were, and you'd made a statement like "me and all of my friends would rather not be around Chinese" it would be rather racist, and you still wouldn't be speaking for the entire country, but at least it would make a valid point that SOME Americans didn't want to be around Chinese. Being both from the US and Chinese, I don't get that feeling at all, of course there are always some people who don't like people of races that aren't their own, but these people are present in all races and countries. From everything I've heard, racism is a larger problem in France and other places in Europe than it is in the US, certainly their countries are more heavily Caucasian than ours.

I was not saying that in France strangers were living better than in US (as it is a country based on immigration) In France people do not like non european very much as soon as you see them too much (like in most of western countries) or as soon as they act up... This may be the same in US. Isn't it? I have nothing against US system nor chinese people. I want just to say that if Guy felt so much proud and usefull for the society JUST because he was working, the society doesn't consider him as so important...

Whoa dude.  I don't think the Americans fear or hate in large part the Yellow Peril, nor do they wish Asian people would disappear from the country (perhaps from UC Berkeley).  Have you ever been to the US? Not sure what the LA riots have to do with anything.  Some Korean shopkeepers were targeted, true.  Thank God you have Sarkozy to keep a lid on your bidonvilles and banlieues full of beurs. But... I believe if you asked an American whom s/he hated more, a Frenchman or a "Chinese", I don't think it would be the Chinese right now. It's late -- go to bed, little man. A hard day's work prowling the sales aisles awaits you tomorrow.
