    when people start hating on "plebe" shit and "plebe" purchases its a little bit offensive as someone who has no money

    idk it seems like in the relatively short time ive been on this forum ive watched it turn from one that valued fit more to one that values labels and the "baller" title more than anything else. at least thats how it is in the threads i look at (wawyt, random thoughts, recent purchases)

    oh for sure. i had to buy a new school laptop and i have like 60 dollars in my savings now. i spend my money on staying alive and the occasional nice piece i save up for, but otherwise i just wear whatever i can find cheap or whatever i can find when i go out with my mom or some shit. i don't have a problem with that, but its kinda disappointing that its basically looked down upon here

    i think the word "pleb" is usually referred to people who buy their button-ups at sears and talk about how they're just as good as BoO and anyone who likes expensive clothes is an elitist yuppie

    Any baller or plebe comment by me is tongue-in-cheek unless it's one of those cases Uncontrol mentioned

    nobody is trying to make you feel bad, and in fact, if you put together good fits with inexpensive clothes people will go apeshit (see: jkissi). As a relatively poor college student, I buy something new once a month or maybe every other month, so I'm by no means baller. However, I do have an interest in fashunz and designer shit, so it's kind of annoying to see people who don't know better asking stupid questions about its value. I don't buy "pleb" shit because to me, it's worth it to save a while and buy something I can get really excited about.
