The last money for clothes is definitely not worth giving. It's just that there is a lot of material on the net where bloggers or sewing meters explain to you how the style of this or that person should look. In reality, if you do not communicate with people of this level, then no one will notice the value of your clothes. Yes, in principle, I think that at a meeting in the White House no one discusses in what suit at what cost you came - it is simply not ethical. It is possible to buy shirts in London and boots in Bali. ) There is no possibility. - the Chinese market at your service. ))
I agree with the previous answers, but sometimes there are situations when a job requires you to look the part. There is nothing you can do about it. Of course, you can go on neatness, but not always so.
I do not understand why all the answers above say that a person wants to show off his wealth or create its appearance? For example, I just love beautiful and high-quality things, custom-made clothes, silk scarves and, in general, clothes in the style of the "old count-vamir". No, this is not what you might think - robes and seemingly idiotic arthouse clothes. I love the classics. Only classic, only hardcore. It may not be a very rational investment, but you are doing something not very rational in order to be a little happier and more confident? So I am doing, and many people around are doing too.
Remember the "New Russians" syndrome? These people strove to show off their wealth. I personally call this rags to riches syndrome. Famous Hollywood actors are not eager to ride the subway, remember at least millions of Instagram photos with almost all the actors of Game of Thrones, which were filmed by their fans on subway trains.
You can also remember how Steve Jobs dressed or Kiano Reeves dresses in order to understand that being rich and looking rich are two different things.
People who strive show your wealth through an expensive (usually credit) car, expensive clothes or gadgets usually do not see this elementary difference.
Everything is extremely simple. People see advertisements, see how happy those people are who bought themselves a Jivanshi shirt for half their salary, how rich their environment is, how they are admired. People come to the store for happiness, but they don't sell it there (V. Pelevin). A man puts on this shirt, and begins to monotonously spam friends with his photos in new clothes.
"Wow, a shirt for thirteen thousand, this man must be rich." He runs to the same store, gets a Gucci bag. This is how a trend arises when a person is a “wow” to a person. People do not even want to show their wealth, they are afraid to lag behind others, to seem like an outcast, to seem poor, not fashionable, and so on. So they spend their last penny in pursuit of the happiness advertised on TV, the norms established by the same imitators. The need for new clothes becomes at the level of the need for sleep, food and intercourse. They try to appear rich by being beggars, they try to appear unusual by being commonplace. They could eat shit, but they eat sushi, they could call themselves stupid, but they call themselves hippies. In fact, this is one field of berries, but someone's part of the field was actively promoted, and someone's remained untouched by anyone.
This topic is discussed in more detail in the book "Generation P" by Viktor Olegovich Pelevin. I recommend reading it for a better understanding of this topic.
People. who else? the person who did all this feels better.
After all, he wouldn't do it if he felt bad about it, right?
Is it rational - different question.
