    ok, heres a puzzler, but before you read this i want to make it clear im not tree-hugging earth mother (well, father, but hey) type, i just dont spend unnecessarily large amounts on clothes, ok?

    ok, can someone PLEASE tell me the reasoning behind spending like £140 on nike trainers, or £120 on a D&G T-shirt?

    i mean its a T-SHIRT for god sake, you can buy one exactly the same but with no D&G ion it for like a fiver, so WHY!?!?!?!?!!?

    this i have pondered for some time, someone come up with a good answer, please!!

    If having designerwear makes some1 feel better about themselves then so be it.
    I think it originally comes from wanting to be like somebody, which can mean not being urselves. thats not a good thing ofcourse.
    I never said theres anything wrong with it, every one wants to feel and look good and your right clothes do that

    Some people spend their money down the pub, some buy nice clothes - i do both

    The point being...people spend their money on things that make them happy and if clothes is your thing then why not?

    i but expensive shoes because they are more comfortable and fit better.

    the same is true with designer clothes. they are not so mass produced so their are of a better quality.

    ok, take jitters, for example, they dont spend that much (kind of a generalisation, but often true), and they distinguish themselves no end!

    I dont go round just looking for expensive clothes, if I see something I like then I will buy it regardless of whether it is a designer label etc but it just happens that most things I like tend to be expensive lol

    i dont shop for blokes clothes, but you wouldnt get much for less than £20 in the cheep shops on the high street.

    and yes i can tell the difference between a £20 top and a £60 top.

    for girls its not just cotton

    fair, (although i'd say that was more 'surfer', lol)
    but the point was that they dont HAVE to spend much to define themselves as moshers


    and yes, i know they can be a bit strange sometimes, lol
