intriguing. i think you should really ask yourself why you judge some outerwear as nice vs ugly. i think that your perception of 'nice' is really just a construct of your human condition - the sum of the product of your social class, your demographic characteristics and your interaction within your social circle. in light of this realization, i think its important to understand the artificiality of taste, and the subsequent inability to transcend the shaping forces of our place in society -- forces that dictate the idea of taste. thus, your perception of control over your choice is actually laughable.
