The game itself is one big asshole. It's like eating at a Chinese buffet with only your hands: anything goes.

There was even a recent story about a purse designer or something purposely marking up their product like 400% to keep in line with their 'image'. Ridiculous.
I'm not sure who that may be, but fun/disgusting fact: Louis Vuitton never let any of their bags go on sale. If the bags have been sitting in stores for to long, they are all collected and incinerated in their private furnace. What a waste!
Yes, with my job I'm able to buy all sorts of brand name clothing, but I'm a girl, and you probably want a dude's opinion on whatever your question was.
Actually the question was for either sex, so thanks for the response!
I wear a lot of CK dress shirts and stuff cuz they fit right. Nice overcoat. Like my high-end cologne and that is about all. High-end fashion costs shitloads and we all know that stuff is marked up crazy.
Yeah it's marked up a lot, like 70% to 80%. I have seen the paper work for that shit.
Here's the perfect opportunity to ask this question because all my friends are men:
what's so appealing about fashion as a subculture? I'm curious.
To be honest, I think that question has a variety of different answers. I'm not going to lie that a lot of it is hype and label name that draws in big buck for a lot of people, but I view high fashion with technical interest as any other engineer or architecture obsess with their field (maybe selectively, I guess). I love studying/observing the pattern making, tailoring technique, and use of materials to make awesome pieces, even though I don't have the money for it. I even have a few pieces that I almost never wear, but keep them almost like art pieces because how much I admire the work and vision put into them. No, each piece has cost me an arm and a leg, but I feel happy to have them in my closet. To go even further, fashion reveals a lot about our current culture, even if some of it seems a tad bit behind on "our" times.
For example, Christopher Kane, for spring/summer 2014, dives into the idea that we everything about us and around us is becoming digital. So much so that information has become instant and recognizable with ease, and that imagination is something we will leave behind (at least that's how I interpret it).
I'm totally serious about this question. Are there fellow Giantbombers into, or even collect, high fashion? And I don't even mean Hypebeast shit, because no one knows what they are talking about on there, and everyone is just a hater on that site (or something similar). I don't expect this to be a very popular topic, but, being a member of this site for years now, I just have to know. Like all of the Comme Des Garcons labels, KTZ, Visim, Christopher Kane, Rick Owens, Undercover.... That (those) sort of thing(s). I know the GB community is pretty diverse, but I'm curious about how diverse it is.
I still think Max Payne 3 gets very little credit for how amazing that soundtrack is...
Don't worry man, conversations via phone or text probably aren't on her hourly priorities. Maybe she's busy, maybe it's awkward for her, or maybe she knows you don't have a bullet in your gut and you're bleeding out on the sidewalk at night. People are different about how they use their communication devices. I don't like phone calls, so texting is fine. My girlfriend and I don't respond immediately (sometimes hours later), because we know we are both busy, and that it's a little overbearing (perhaps something to consider). As long as you feel like the relationship is authentic between you two, and can still plan out dates accordingly, then nothing to worry about. Date on my friend.
