if you realized it was a hobby you would stop over intellectualizing it. clothing is clothing, end of story. yes everyone has different reasons for buying clothing or participating in sf and following fashion, but stop reading into everything so much. its annoying and it masquerades as real discussion (which it isn't). if you have serious questions go see a therapist so if I do it for intellectual reasons, whats wrong? Am I hurting anyone by doing this? You might not be getting this cuz the brands you buy might not cater to that. Its fine though.
