    I simply don't understand the point of rich people consuming expensive stuff. It doesn't matter how much your belt cost, if you're the one buying it instead of the one selling it, YOU'RE THE LOSER. How could it be otherwise?

    Seriously, I do wonder when these dinosaurs will realise conspicuous consumption just isn't cool any more.

    That she's been selling her body to buy this belt and automatically she's a prostitue.

    Roxannnnnnnnnnnneee. You don't have to purchase that Gucci merchandise.
    Those days are over. I'll buy you something from primark.
    Roxannnnnnnnnnnnneee. You don't have to put on that Gucci belt tonight.
    Those days are over. I'll give money for a BJ, allright?
    ROXAANNNNNNEEEE. TAKE OFF YOUR GUCCI BELT.
    ROXXAAANNNNEEE. TAKE OFF YOUR TROUSERS WHILE YOUR AT IT
    ROXXXXXAAANNNEEE. I've got a sneaky suspicion you're a man.

    think he if he is going to spend £215 that he would be better off getting the £215 back, spending £5 max on a significantly cheaper belt that is just as good and give the remaining £210 to this Dmon1Unlimited guy, so that he can spend it on a nice guitar :pierre:

    what is your opinion?
    I would think that he likes to flaunt his wealth.
    But why would anyone spend that much money on a belt?

    I'm suprised with some of the mean spirited answers in this thread. I don't think the price of someone's belt matters, if they can afford it and like it I don't see the problem. There's only a problem if someone purchases an item well beyond their means. Plus, belts are staples which will last years unlike a flashy dress or heels that girls only wear once or twice.

    I would assume it cost £5 from a market stall. That's my standard assumption for any garish 'designer' product I see on anyone, regardless of age. Gucci belts, Louis Vuitton bags, Ralph Lauren Big Pony (I'm unsure if that's really 'designer' in the same context, but it fits into the same category) that sort of thing. Gucci belts tend to be particularly ugly as well, so I'd assume they were so desperate for a status symbol that they were willing to forgo any sense of style in order to wear it.

    The bigger and more prominent the branding on someone's clothing, the greater their desperation to be noticed as someone who can afford status symbols, and in many cases this equates to someone who isn't actually very well-off, but spends a disproportionately large percentage of their income trying to persuade casual observers that they are. People who are actually well-off will rarely need to use their clothing to scream about it.

    Therefore I'd think quite little of them, but not as little as I'd think of an adult doing the same. It's excusable when you're 15, if a little silly.

    Firstly, I'd think it was a knock off fake from a market stall, no matter what they said.

    Secondly, I'd also think they have absolutely no sense of fashion at all.

    Lastly, I'd constantly take the piss out of them for wearing it.

    what if they earned that money and made that money in like 2-3 months?
    People will say you have every right to spend your money how you want, but personally I think that it's immensely naive to spend 2-3 month's wages on an item of clothing. I saved up all my part time job money and I needed every penny of it at university.

    If your parents plan to fund the beginning of your life after school that's fine, but if not then I would seriously advise you, for your own sake, to keep the money. You can always spend it later

    Must be an Asian, I've seen quite a few of them with fake Gucci, watches, belts, shoes. They think they are ruling the world. Feel like slapping these guys to knock sense into them.
    Erm... I'm Asian and I don't wear fake goods (knowingly)...

    The only real designer item I'm wearing now are my Ben Sherman shoes, but then I find that spending £80 on shoes is better economy than buying lots of cheap shoes. (Besides, I got them for £50 at another site that had them reduced)

    This being said, I really like the look of Next signature belts. I bought one. It broke in about 3 weeks.... I got one from Burton/Topman (one of those shops) and it's tearing apart. The only one that seems to stay together is the cheap belt from Asda. Make of that what you will. I don't particularly like the design, but not many places have "small" belts ie: I've seen some that have "extra small" "medium" and "large" belts, and hardly any place has small ones!
