Just today, I was standing killing time before work at a mall, and I thought to myself

>I'm wearing over $400 right now

Not quite 100,000 yen but I was kind of surprised. I'm totally a narcissist though, it makes sense.

Burberry Prorsum jacket, Saint Laurent jeans and tee, John Varvatos boots. Very inoffensive fit, blacks, greys, and whites, just all high quality stuff. I feel somewhat out of place, like I should be doing something else, either artistically or making money some other way and not bullshitting my way through university, but my parents won't let me NOT get a degree.. The least I can do is finish and get a high paying 9 to 5..

hat - $100

just barely broke 1k

phew

>>8852623

So your parents payed for your $5k fit?

Just sayin, I'd personally feel very inauthentic and like a slimeball leech if I made my parents drop that kind of dosh on clothes, regardless of our family's social standing.

not him, but my parents give me an allowance of X dollars per two weeks to be spent however I want, whether it's on clothes, video games, beer, whatever. If I want expensive clothes I save up. It's hardly the same as asking my parents to buy me expensive clothes.

No but you're still copping expensive clothes clothes on your mom and dad's budget. It's cool if your parents are investing your education and living expenses, but if you're walking around in SLP and shit on your parent's dollars you just look like a twat.

>>8854488
you literally live off your parents, no amount of damage control is getting past that
>>
>>8854581
but if we're presuming his parents have the money to support him for all "important" facets of life, such as education and living, and then more to simply give to spend freely, then there is absolutely nothing wrong with him spending that money on clothing regardless of whether or not he "earned" that money himself.

All you're basically telling him to do is throw away his money because he's not spending right, and its not coming from the "correct" source. But even that idea of parents being an "incorrect" source of funding is a purely lower-income notion. Relatively few above a 150k family income, especially those of gen 2+ in that economic bracket, actually give a shit about whose money "it is". Money is money, and its importance isn't in that you have it or where it comes from. The only value money has is on what you buy with it.

There is really no reason this anon should be ashamed of spending his money on clothes, except in matters relating to his likely poor taste.
>>
>>8854646
I'm not that first anon by the way. And I agree with you, there's only problem with that if it's too expensive relatively to my parents' income/my allowance, which it luckily isnt.
>>
>>8852623
why are your parents wasting their hard-earned cash on letting you inflate your ego with expensive clothing when they're putting you through college? why do you need that shit? college already costs an arm and a leg you still choose to extort your parents just because you wanna look good? you're fucked once you're out of college and on your own. the only way you're getting money after college is if you kill your parents and get the inheritance.

>All you're basically telling him to do is throw away his money because he's not spending right, and its not coming from the "correct" source

No I'm not. I'm talking about differing values. I personally wouldn't walk around in designer/luxury clothing if it was bought by my parents because a lot of people (myself included) would have disdain for you. Since wearing expensive clothes your parents dime shows that you're prioritizing an expensive hobby over your own pursuit of being independent and self-sufficient.

Basically, I believe strongly in delayed gratification.

well
presuming you have your education and your living expenses, to what you consider to be fair, covered

what would you be spending your parent's hard earned cash given to you in the form of an allowance

or, since I think this your answer, after your refusal of an allowance, what would your parents be spending their excess hard earned cash on;
and more importantly, will they be spending it more, or less, productively, practically or "intellectually", than either you or the anon in question? (who spends his "allowance" on fashionable clothing)

This is of course a continuation of my previous statement; Money itself doesn't matter. It's what you buy with it that does.

And on a side note, I think its fair to presume that, if the anon has taste, whatever luxury items he would be wearing in the public arena would not be immediately recognized for their retail value. He might wear $4000 dollars worth of clothing, but as a tasteful man, his peers would simply see him as a well-dressed man spending a similar amount of money as they had (and maybe they'll think, he's simply spent his money better than they did). Because, obviously, the tasteful man who recognizes context does not wear a monogrammed jacket to announce how much money he's spent, except when it is appropriate to do so.

Ugh, holy fuck this thread.

The people whose parents' money provides them with designer wardrobes don't ask their parents for money to buy it. They just get it, and it's probably not even their largest expense category. They run through the money on whatever they want, like it was their own. For them and for their parents, there's always more where it came from.

Which is fine, in a lot of ways. Like the other guy is saying, it's just money. It has no inherent value and says nothing about yours.

That said, there's also a lot to be said about independence, earning things besides money, the corrosive and asphyxiating nature of bourgeois life, etc. etc.

But there's multiple kinds of dependence. Who's more independent, the guy who black cars up to Connecticut once a week and has enough family wealth in his name that cash is never a logistical obstacle? Or the guy working 80 precarious hours just to stay alive?

Capitalism chokes everyone and we have to carve out some kind of self-determination and individual flourishing inside it. None of us know what we're doing and contempt is seldom useful.

And financial decisions are almost never just about money. They're about deeper needs - even paying the pills is bottom-line conatus, the need to continue to be. And for someone raised into the moneyed class, asking them to abandon who they are is pointless. It's a nonsensical request, unless it's something they need to do for their own sake.
