I agree. The things you spend your money on are all relative. You may have an idea that a great sweatshirt isn't worth spending the money on, while others will disagree with you.
Let me just say this: certain brands from Japan may be "overpriced." But, brands like Buzz Rickson, etc. are actually at a pretty decent pricepoint for the fabric being used. Your Lands End sweatshirt doesn't compare to a loopwheeler in any way. To you a sweatshirt might be some shitty piece of clothing you slop on, to others it's fashion, or at least worth investing in, and to each his own. I suspect if you got your hands on loopwheeler fleece you might at least appreciate the difference.
