    I understand low and mid tier fashion because of styleforum, but high fashion and luxury brands I have almost no knowledge of. Why are brands like Armani, Dior, Hugo Boss, and Dolce & Gabbana not given any thought here?

    Perceived value for money relationship.

    i really don't preserve anything at all. i wear whatever whenever except at home where i wear a pair of 12 year old a&f shorts or sweatpants and a tank top.

    At home, I wear the same stuff I've been wearing outside, except in the evenings, when I walk around in an old gi bottom (BJJ gi bottoms are the toughest things around, if you really want tough clothes) and an old gym shirt.

    Can someone enlighten me of the wonders of the vest?
    To me they just look stupid and unpractical. It's supposed to be warm, but has no sleeves? Shenme?

    The clothes I wear out are the same I wear at home. The only time I wear pajamas or something of that nature is if i'm sick.

    Everything else should be unsellable after about a week of wear. They are clothes. They don't deserve to be revered.
    Yeah I'm not quite at that level of trashing clothes that I saved up for a month or more to buy, maybe if they weren't so hard to attain, fair enough they are 'just clothes' to you but think about car enthusiasts who baby their cars to keep them pristine, I have the same mindset with expensive clothes. If you're not going to care if they rip or stain then what value can you possibly put in these clothes, not much in my eyes. But I agree with living your life in your clothes to some degree, there's no point spending all your money on clothes that you won't wear (akin to the fine china that some people have in their house), they weren't made to collect dust in a wardrobe and again a person that does this doesn't value their clothes. There are some things that I will always baby though, no matter where I am, such as my silk ann demeulemeester scarf.

    I'm pretty much stylin at home too I have a high discomfort tolerance so shorts or whatever around the house don't really do anything for me.

    Hate myself for buying clothes on impulse that are a size up cause the right size is not available and thinking I could make it work.
