that's why most of us will never have successful businesses and what not. we'll always be living paycheck to paycheck. niggas just can't see the big picture. I'm living in a two bedroom apartment. why the fuck would i spend 200 or 300 on some fucking clothes? crazy shit. most niggas still living with they folks.

just a question

    I won't lie. I'm shallow. I have to feel fresh, and the only way I will feel fresh is if I have expensive shit.

    So if I wanna spend 175$ on a pair of diesel jeans or 250$ on some Kenneth Cole shoes, I'll just have to do that.

    Image is everything...and I notice that niggas rile up with envy when they see you have on something that they can't afford. LoL

    Same reason why they want name brand food instead of off brand and a Benz in they driveway that costs more than they house to a certain degree and level we all live beyond our means

    even though the crazy thing is with some name brand clothes they're usually made in the same factory as an off brand knockoff but people dont recognize that

    cuz its the lifestyle n prestige the brands builds off of that makes ppl want to buy it. shit validates niggas/broads that they top line or on some 5 star best of the best shit since they got money now.

    cant front tho soon as i get my money up all ima rock is expensive suits, shoes n jeans.

    paying for brand name clothes doesn't equal living paycheck to paycheck

    it's called having budget and if you stick to it you can the things you like plus more

    I don't focus on name brands when buying clothes, but I have noticed that the clothes I do get often end up being from a familiar brand.

    not all niggas rile up w/ envy...some people just don't care about that type of shit...your $175 pair of jeans aren't more noticeable than somebody's $20 pair of jeans...

    What you wear is a reflection of how you feel inside too. I wear name brands because i actually like Ralph Lauren, Hugo Boss,etc and they way their clothes are made and fit. As far as that other shit, i don't see the relation between the liking to wear nice shit and living paycheck to paycheck. There are plenty of people who like dressing nice and are financially responsible

    niggas need to stop just looking at end result and look at motives.

    The people that say "shit, don't you know how much this outfit costs?" as proof that it looks good(Soulja boi) aren't financially responsible.
    If I like something I'ma cop it. Be it from Target(never wal-mart), Ralph Lauren, Stussy, Lacoste, or any other brand. Niggas need to learn how to ball on a budget.

    I'm sure someone that buys brand name food is buying it because it taste good, unlike someone buying brand name clothes who is doing it for their image.

    Didn't you hear me say, i like they way their clothes are made and fit. There is a difference between high end products and some Walmart shit, there are certain things you want to spend good money on and i have no problem with that. I also know how to get deals (Marshalls, TJ Maxx, etc), rarely do i ever go to one of the big department stores.
