    It's expensive for a reason, I had burtons Jean that I payed £18 for the fit was horrible, cheap clothes are okay if you don't really care about fashion, that's the style of the jeans and look at those back pockets tho you don't get them on £10 jeans Attachment 594996
    I've never had any problems with jeans not fitting.
    Caring about fashion is the most petty thing to care about - it is something that serves no other function than aesthetic.

    Also I own a sewing machine so I could quite easily stitch horseshoes onto my arse if I felt that would in some way validate me as a human. Oh, and my sewing machine cost significantly less than £300.

    An old used Rolex is believed to still possess class, provided it is handed down through the family.

    So you would rather cry walking on the street for hours than driving a nice Range Rover

    No: what I'm saying is that I wouldn't necessarily feel happier because I was in a £1,000 coat.

    Why would I be crying because I wasn't driving a Range Rover?

    Honestly, this series of posts of yours does suggest that the only thing you care about is material possessions. If that's true, it's awfully sad and does suggest there's a huge void in your life you're trying to fill with trinkets.

    Quality differences between cheap and expensive products aside, surely the happier you can be from less stuff, the better. Even for a population as a whole, the fewer resources people need to sustain the same levels of happiness, the better.

    I have expensive taste regarding food but thats about it. Particularly meat, all my meat has to be bought from the local butchers. I like to spend money on nice restaraunts and holidays. Clothes, I dont buy cheap but I don't buy high end. I like topshop/newlook/levi but if i liked a piece from tesco I would still buy it! I like new gadgets but thats only because Im techy. I work hard for my money so when I feel I deserve a treat I buy myself it!

    I don't think a £1k jacket will keep me any warmer than my winter coat, (which cost £50 about ten years ago) a jumper and a hat knitted by my mum. Certainly not twenty times warmer. Plus my winter coat is knife resistant and fireproof. It wasn't advertised as such but it has had a trial by fire....literally.

    Brands logos are like warts on the clothes which are only meant to serve a purpose, keep you warm. If the fabric is **** won't buy it, simple as. Cut off the logos of my coats or cover them with permanent marker. They are only a reason to be smug or think you are better than someone else just because you had a better starting position in life. Nothing is as ****ing annoying as fashion, just having some prat's name on a suit or coat or even a ****ing watch makes some people seem on cloud 9. You are still human and just the same as everyone else. Don't make materialistic possesions make you think you are special.

    Your right £1K for a jacket is a lot, £50 you can get a decent jacket, jackets knife and fire resistant that's a big bonus
