Question: I'm not really talking about Nike, Adidas or Levis There prices go up and down all the time. I'm talking about brands that magically pop up like Supreme, Tisa, and basically any youth brand. For example Supreme is known for retailing Asian Tiger Camo or basically camouflage of the majority of colors, and they charge 300$ for a military jacket or a 100% for a hat that's looks a special Ed would wear, (sorry if I offended anyone) to me it doesn't look like a hat. Anyways the jackets are made with the exact material that the other brands like propper (official army gear), and rothco. Except propper sometimes uses 100% cotton, and Rothco uses polyester on there top quality jackets, but that's a different story they still use the same material as Supreme uses. The only main difference between those brands is the supreme logo being stich inside jacket which is retarded to pay 300$ for a jacket that in most cases has a smaller sizing so your already getting ****, and it is the same patteren to propper which they charge 60$ on there site but you can get them 20$ off on amazon. Another example, like Tisa. They will make the same snapback design as new era or 47 brand( they are expensive brands just not as expensive as Tisa) and they will charge about at least 40$ more than a regular snapback. I really think it's stupid just because it has Tisa stich on the side in a very ugly design, and a little logo on the back It can go for so much. Why do people shop for expensive brands. I'm not cheap I like to shop for expensive brands as well, but only if its worth it. For example I like to buy jordans shoes but not the jordan clothing because I can always go to an outlet, and get it cheaper. Im not paying 80$ for a sweater that has a little *** that has the same quality as a 15 dollar sweater. Can anyone please inform why do we buy these expensive brands that have the same quality as these original name brands? It makes no sense.

Easy Answer: Watch the movie American Psycho or better yet, read the book. The movie has the necessary visuals but the book is a lot better. There's a reason why Kiton is called the hedge fund managers brand. As taken from the wikipedia article on Kiton: There are two lines of ready to wear suits, the "classic line", which retails for approximately US$ 7,000[3] to US $8,000,[4] and the "CIPA 1960" line, introduced in 2010, starting at US$5,500.[4] Made to measure suits reach above US $20,000[3] and up to US$ 50,000 for the "K-50" line,[5] so called because of the number of production hours per piece and the number of units produced per year.[6] It is said that tailors from Italy, especially Naples, are superior to those from other regions. You can compare this to Japanese sushi chefs or Cuban cigar rollers. My knowledge of tailoring is next to none so I won't be able to give an opinion about this, however I've heard this said so many times by so many people who are "in the business" that I'm inclined to believe it. For what it's worth, my knowledge of Japanese cuisine is also next to none and I've never smoked a cigar in my life. For some insight into tailoring, I love this clip: http://vimeo.com/1213401 Having said that I do not think this is necessarily the reason why you would want to buy the top brands going for 3 to 7 thousand off the rack. It's culture, it's prestige, it's your social circle. I have second hand accounts of culture within certain parts of the finance industry and what you wear, what you drive, how much you earn, where you sleep, how your apartment looks like, who you f**k, they all matter. It's a highly competitive setting where people are gauged by financial succes. I don't want to generalize, but I have experienced some of this. Basically it's prestige and social surroundings. Brands display financial status and power. Why otherwise would brands like Kiton be called the hedge fund manager's and the top executive's brand? Now do keep in mind that given the small amount of excellent tailors out there I can understand that there are suits that cost thousands of dollars, especially when made bespoke, but something like a 20k bespoke suit seems a little over the top to me. Bret Easton Ellis, the author of American Psycho, comes from the Wall Street yuppie scene and based his novels on those observations. The business card scene as well as the quote below illustrate my point. Business card scene: Patrick Bateman: Paul Allen has mistaken me for this ******** Marcus Halberstram. It seems logical because Marcus also works at P&P and in fact does the same exact thing I do and he also has a penchant for Valentino suits and Oliver Peoples glasses. Marcus and I even go to the same barber, although I have a slightly better haircut.

Albin Originally Answered: Why do some people give their children very ethnic names?
"Ghetto" and "ethnic" are not a pair. Substitute "cultural" for "ethnic" and you've got it closer. I've never been able to really figure out the origin of the apostrophe-laden curiously spelled name, but I can wager a guess - the names are a blend of English, African, Spanish, and Arab names - a cross-culture blend of the cultures which make up the African-American experience.
Albin Originally Answered: Why do some people give their children very ethnic names?
Like "Dagmar" or "Heike" or "Bjørn"? I have found that it is quite common for Americans to give their children English sounding names and to use their Chinese name in the middle. For example, "Heather Mee Lin Wong" or "Annie Chen Chun Wu". That way, both cultures are combined in a delightful and pleasant way. You can easily pronounce the first name, and later if you choose, learn to pronounce the middle name, as you get to know her better. Yes, they speak English or whatever your local language might be. Cultures have been mixed and borrowed for countless centuries, which is part of the joy of having different cultures. Now I am hungry for sweet and sour chicken. By the way, in Sweden there was a law against giving a child an odd name. There is a officially approved list. Apparently the law has been relaxed recently.
Albin Originally Answered: Why do some people give their children very ethnic names?
I do not like any of those names, but I am not the child's parent so I do not have any say. I agree that names can play a part in their future, but at the same time the world is changing and names can change, too. I wanted to name my son Jax, but his father and I decided on Jaxon (jackson) because it was a bit more professional sounding. So one could say I named my son a ghetto name, and I am in no way ghetto.

...because they can afford it. Why spend $2000 on a Lui Vitton purse, when you can get a purse for $2? Becuase you can.

Hi, $250 is a little low to get a reasonable tenor trombone for your boy. To be honest, I've never heard of any of the makes you mentioned, but a little research on the net has not given me much confidence in any of them. There are many reports of serious problems after a few months... If I were you, with your budget, I would look at buying a second hand instrument. Yamaha is a good 'mid range' instrument, and there are lots available used. Have a look on eBay. You're looking for something to last about 4 years; get a decent Yamaha and it will last him all the way through to college if necessary... You'll probably want a 'medium bore' trombone (0.5") with about an 8" bell. Have a word with his teacher about this. Alternatively, if you really want to buy a new instrument and money is tight, try and find a 'hire/buy' scheme. I'm in the UK, and quite a lot of music shops operate a system where you pay a bit per month for him to use a new instrument, if he gives up after a few years, you just return it; if you decide to buy it, they deduct the rental cost from the price and you buy it outright for the balance. It's more expensive than buying straight off, but worth it if you're not sure if he'll stick with it. Hope this helps, and good luck with it!

Etude and Cecilio are junk. With that tight of a budget, go on Craigslist and find a used trombone from a decent brand like Yamaha, Bach, King, Holton, or Conn.
