I think there's a large margin between how SFs look at clothing and how Americans should look at clothes I.e. yea jeans and a polo are inappropriate for a funeral, but someone making x amt of dollars a year isn't obligated to wear clothes of some arbitrary quality or price range. To that degree it shouldn't be a priority, outside of maybe picking clothes that fit + flatter I mean why stop there... Meis post is almost like saying someone of a certain salary should drive car X, live in neighborhood Y in a house that costs Z hundred thousand dollars, yadda yadda. Meaningless materialism. I'd rather have the cash and live how I want; if "nice" clothes is a part of that then so be it.
