    On forums or chats dealing with everything but clothes, so where I am completely out of subject, with people who do not care about clothes...

    My aim = to make them call about clothes to make them realize they are "losers" with no ambition and without taste.

    I try to explain them how much it is important to be dressed properly in life (business and personal).

    I like to test them with asking the question about what kind of shirts, shoes and watches they like (not they own because they would say they have no enough money to get dressed properly).

    Answers of people are often :

    - shirts = Boss, Lacoste, Polo (very trendy over the past few years, I do not know why.), "italien style".

    - shoes = Kenzo, Boss, Nike, sometimes Weston for more educated people

    - watches = Rolex, Breit, Festina..., Seiko


    It always finish like that : they say I am snob, rich, I have no self confidence that's why I need nice clothes...

    Due to web, I realize how few people are aware of what they buy or even what they like.

    I don't have a huge problem with Rolex or Brietling, or even Tag or Omega. Â I do think you need to recognize what you are buying though which is a trademark- you are paying a higher price/quality ratio than with some other comprable but less advertised watches. Personally, I could see myself buying a couple different models of each of those, but I would buy them used without a doubt.
    The problem is not so to buy a Rolex or Breit but to think they are the best ones in the world, not to know that Patek, JL or Vacheron or AP exist... The problem is when you ask these people which Rolex or Breit do they prefer, they reply : " anyone of them" That means they do not know anything about Rolex or Breit. They just repeat a name they have told to be the best in their surrounding. Watch for them is just to read hour. A quartz fake of Rolex is enough for them.
