I don't think its fair to call someone 'selfish' based on there personal choices. Are you 'selfish' for not giving all you're money away to charity?
To an extent yes, but it's all proportional.

Quality of clothing is linked to its price only to a certain level. But once you start paying ludicrous prices for stuff then you're blatantly throwing large chunks of money away on nothing, which could go to a more worthwile cause.

TBH, selfish or not, I would feel an idiot for buying into the whole thing.

What are the motivations for buying such overpriced goods? Overt displays of wealth? Acceptance from like-minded individuals?

I was just sending a PM about clothes and became curious, when I'm going out with a boy I enjoy to shower him with gifts as i hope he does me, no im not some millionaire rich but i have money to spend and i do so with clothes (as my mates owns a bar so it takes away the need to buy alcohol lol (big money saver)). So I was just curious where all you boys enjoy to shop? I normally buy from river island, armani, versace, burton, hugo boss, ck, ralph lauren, top man, madhouse, YSL, dkny, gucci (and i use goldsmiths ans H sammuels when buying jewellery) the list could go on forever but im curious if there's any other shops or places boys like to shop at?
I love USC, its the best, FCUK is good too and top man make some good stuff. Republic in the trafford centre is good.

Whilst there are still insecure tits like Percy in the world I will want to get into the overpriced clothing market.

Are you retarded? Do you seriously have nothing better to spend your money on?

It's consumerism gone mad. You are buying things you don't need, and paying an absolute fortune for them. Have you ever actually thought about it?
I'm impressed, someone's actually talking some sence in this thread.

I just think it's hilarious how they take really dodgy trends, wait a few months then get their own version on the shelves for £3. I hate the way stuff from there lasts 2 weeks though.
its better to pay £3 for a dodgy trend than buy it for a 3 figure sum based on a label. the majority of clothes you buy in designer label store are cheap, manafactured crap designed to lure in joe average who thinks hes abit classy. they are like any other chain store.
if you want to go 'designer' (based on the name of a designer as opposed to the designer) stick to the official boutiques and pay over four figures...but youd have to be slightly demented in any case.
as a girl, ive seen more hideously dressed men in so called designer clothes than i care to remember...

some good points here.... i sometimes see in the magazines certain clothing priced at over £200, when I know you can get the equivalent quality items for about £40 or less.... alot of designer stuff are just ripoffs... take the Martial Arts (flat heel so easier to train in) trainers that Adidas are now selling for £50-£75 in the shops. I bought the EXACT same shoes (design everything) for £25 from my instructor.... the only difference was the word Playwell instead of Adidas. AND i thought that was a ripoff, cuz the heel starts to come off after the 4th time you wear it...

Levi Jeans
Armani Y Fronts
