As for jewelry the middle classes are a bit more subtle than the working class but at the end of the day, the working class work harder for their gold...

Good point, know a guy who worked for a huge clothing manufacturer ( won’t name company) anyway they changed their fabric to something inferior and cheaper to produce but still stuck on their famous designer label and of course people still bought it because of the name. That’s the way the world works . I buy if I like the item, style and fabric, nothing else.

I'd agree with you there, but I go for the Hilfiger trousers I can get for 1 Euro in the local charity shops over that expensive stuff from Penneys!
As for the Ralph Lauren/Lacoste posers, I think all polo shirts are trash. No exceptions.

If everyone could have diamonds, they wouldn't be worth anything. No woman would care about them much.

That's the terrible thing about it - it's based on exclusivity. It also ends up with children dying in mines, it's well known in the diamond trade. It's sick.

when you see scumbags wearing big huge gold college rings when they barely finished primary let alone secondary school is a sure sign of mental illness and chav sheep mentality.

another is a football jersey, with the gold necklace on the outside, usually dangling a pair of boxing gloves or some tacky word like "nike".


I despise gold, only wear silver, and my wedding ring is white gold.

I always thought that they wore big rings as carrying weapons is illegal here.

Diamonds are pretty common. The reason for their popularity is almost entirely down to marketing. Outside of extremely large or unusually coloured gems they have feck all resale value.

So people look down or judge people for wearing jewellery, I get that but doesn't mean its ok for you to look down on people who buy branded clothes.

By the by, I don't by RL either ridiculous price but there is now way there fabrics is the same as Penney's.

Asking the good folks of AH, do you reckon that the amount of jewellery worn is inversely proportional to someone’s social class?
Standard behaviour.

Poor life choices in general.
You will find those who can least afford it are the ones covered in gold, diamonds and driving the latest bmw

I'm just grateful that the type of folk I want to avoid seem to make themselves very easily identifiable.

I find people who judge others by their appearance to be repugnant and lack class.
