    Never, the closest I've ever got was considering buying Beats but theyre genuinely terrible headphones.

    I can't fathom the types who spend like 300 quid on celebrity endorsed ****, crazy.
    There's one watch that had quite a limited supply. The price shot up from £1750 to £4300. This was signed by some sporting celebrity. This being said it is a damn good watch except I'm not so fond of silicone on watches

    Never until I started work now I buy nice watches, shoes, suits etc. It helps people take you more seriously especially with clients. You have to look professional. Some may call my car a status symbol but I like to drive fast so...

    An Ecko tracksuit, though the status this was symbolic of is perhaps not the one you were suggesting.
