The clothes dont make the man anymore, clothing isnt perceived as an outward ATM reciept or a sign of status like it used to be. Showing an avid interest in your appearance will get you noticed amongst people who dont. But its an interest like any other. Its like asking the guy in the M3 with the shinny rims if he feels bad that he still lives with his parents. No one thinks youre an aristrocat. They just want a free drink.
