Perhaps the bottom level stuff makes up a large proportion of what they stock but they're definitely still prominent.

One of nicer brands of casual stuff I own is lululemon. It's more expensive than most sporting brands but substantial difference in quality to Nike/UA/Adidas
Yeah they make lower quality clothes specifically for their outlet shops but their stuff isn't really like that.

Thats seems a peculiar way to run a brand.
Isn't all that sort of thing just a public mickey measuring stick for people who are deeply insecure and need to show off how much money they have spent on their clothes
Late stage capitalism is a very bizarre place, whatever happened to making the best quality at an affordable price

Loads of those clothes have the logos on them? There's a guy I know who is really wealthy. He wears nothing by TH, plenty of logos on him too.


The each have multiple lines, some aren't even made by them, just lisensed out. CK is the same. In the case of Ralph Lauren there's Polo, RRL, Purple Label, Denim & Supply, Rugby. Even their premium labels have 70-90 percent off sales. Often its the type of person more than anything else that makes people groan. Be it personality or just that they are seen as an old person thing your father wore.

I only got around to watching the final of Home of the Year this morning.

Did others watch it this year? I was disappointed with the eventual winner, I thought one of the other two finalists were more deserving.

That's the great irony, expensive clothes don't have labels. The labels are for the middling and bottom part of the range for the people that need to wear it.

It's like people who buy coats/blazers and don't know their meant to take the white label off the sleeve.

They are doing that, they're putting out different quality products at different price points differentiated by label.

Maybe their using them more now, but the purple and black almost never had any.

Had a meeting with a billionaire recently (a sample of one, I know), but he runs a household name fashion firm and jeans + plain black tee was the attire.

Real pain dealing with my management company for my apartment. We lost a front door "do not duplicate" key so have been trying to get it replaced... for two months. First, estate agents were giving out the wrong management company, then had to track down the right one. I have no words for how thick everybody is at the estate agents in general. Not to mention how slimy the owner is.

I ring that management company guy, complete waste of space that man, sounds like you are waking him up or he is on drugs no matter what time you call him at, assurances of he will deal with it etc, completely forgets that you've even called him before, completely makes things up every time you talk to him. Goes on for ages until I get my estate agents to message him. Eventually says go to specific lock smiths to get it copied, show my email as proof that I have consent.

Go along to locksmith, they say no problem, come back in a few hours. Do so, they say sorry they didn't get an email directly from the guy so they won't do it after all - my email from him isn't good enough they've decided. Obviously took them 4 hours for it to process through their skulls.

OK, takes over a week to get the guy to email them directly. Go back into locksmiths today, they say sorry you need a special card or we can't copy it. You couldn't have mentioned that last time you idiotic cunts? Now have to get this card off this better off as a pile of wank human being, ETA 2020. Anybody that's involved with managing property have to be the biggest dregs of society.

Always feel like a bit of a pleb in the Netherlands, everyone is well put together and everything is very nice and well organised. If it was a bit less boring you might be tempted to stay
