    I suspect many off us here, myself included, subscribe to this sartorial philosophy. I like well made clothing without the bling. Other than the obvious logo on my polo shirts, my other clothing items are practically logo-free.

    Interesting article. MY two cents =I agree with alot of it, but essentially the consumer is just trading one kind of identification with another; a logo vs a signature style or integrated element.
    I think its all pointing to a couple of things:

    1. ) How to secure the shrinking attention span of a consumer already swamped with information and brand recognitions.

    2.) And at the same time sell product to alot of people and have each one feel unique.

    I don't mind logos, but I don't like feeling conspicuous in them.

    what's cool is spending $300 on a pair of wranglers.

    Vintage luxury is always devoid of common status especially when paired with difficult fashion.

    looks like they just changed their site so now you can't link directly to the articles anymore... you need a cookie... I wonder if this was because I linked to it here and at my blog... lol... I'll PM you the article...
