Bullshit Nick. Buying dior or supreme takes a little more effort than buying a henleys tee. Most of the people here spend hours trawling ebay etc for supreme and spend more than a henleys buyer, because they're "into clothes" and are prepared to spend more than £20 on the same tee as half their town are wearing.

Being fashion conscious is knowing a bit about fashion, being conscious of it. A henleys wearer isnt conscious of fashion in any way shape or form. He wears what everyone else wears.

To be fair, the same can be said about this forum.
Generally speaking, everyone wears the same brands and clothes etc

From Wiki

Fashion refers to the styles and customs prevalent at a given time. In its most common usage however, "fashion" describes the popular clothing style. Many fashions are popular in many cultures at any given time.

A fairly accurate definition for 99% of people.

For example why do loads of women wear Ugg boots at the moment? because whether we like it or not they are "in fashion" at the moment for women. Checked shirts and skinny jeans and "in fashion" for men at the moment, buying a Supreme checked shirt doesn't mean you more "in fashion" than a guy who buys one from Top Man, just that you've spent more money.

What do you wear that shows your fashion consciousness, what will you be wearing next year, what are you wearing this year that is different to everyone else ?

I'm not having a go, just asking why you buying similar stuff to what people on here wear is different to Henleys guy buying similar stuff yo what his mates wear ?

Is the only difference the cost and that you don't just walk into a high street shop and buy it ?

If I'm honest, then yes.

I could have got something that looked almost identical for a quarter of the cost if I could be bothered to look, but I liked the color so I bought it.

I like that green checked Supreme jacket, but if someone shows me something similar I'll buy it, regardless of where it's from (provided it's not horrible fabric)

I think you know the answer to that already.

Just like the Henley's brigade, this little community has labels that are deemed "ok to like" and labels that aren't.

Right or wrong, it's hard to deny.
