Cow hide and a logo that is basically an advertisement you are not paid for but you in fact paid for it.

I applaud the utter insanity of fashion that fishes for ego. Gets them every time.

Not to go full MSN Messenger status from 99 on you but I believe Incubus said it rather well in one of their songs:

"Price tags advertise your pride. Since when did what we pay for coloured-cloth gauge our gravity?"

I see the appeal to be honest. I tend to mostly use cash and as a consequence I'm always worried that people will think i'm poor. If I have clothing with the gucci logo clearly visible then people will probably think more top revenue earner than on the way to wetherspoons.

I prefer to look poor and stay under everyone's radar (no I'm not rich either). One of my neigbhours mostly drives a 20 year old battered estate. He dresses like an average older retired guy. No-one would give him a second look. What most people don't realise is that his garage is empty but has doors front and back to park his fleet of classic cars and motorbikes in his garden, including an immaculate E-type.

you could probably get a custom made belt with the purest metals and highest quality leather custom made for less

turn up for work with a carbon fibre suit or a nanotube grapheme belt.
guaranteed that your ceo will step down and hand you the reigns

This. We have a hand leather craftsman in the village and he will make you a bespoke, quality leather belt for £125. Will be miles better than any Gucci one.

I always wear Diesel myself as the lad down the local market always told me "Diesel fit you"

I was at that market too I asked the butcher if he’d deliver and he said he does liver, heart and kidneys!
