I Have an Expensive Taste

 

Wait a minute. You don’t know me. Before you judge me.

I simply love something then later on learn how expensive it
really is.

I do not go around desiring only what is outside of my
budget, that’s farthest from the truth.

I however, love something, style, make and then later on
find out it’s not so affordable.

There are
those who believe that the image of a man in a fine-tailored suit is to the
female of the species what the image of a woman in lingerie is to a man: ‘Oozing
sexiness.’

It’s
true, fine suits and tuxedos have almost always been the height of male
fashion, lending wearer status and attendant charisma, machismo, and utter
confidence.

On the
other hand, the suit has lately been largely shunned by the high-flying, uber
class of CEOs like Mark Zuckerberg and Larry Page, with Silicone Valley bigwigs
favouring jeans and scrappy tees as the suit becomes increasingly associated
with the stuffy, high-powered finance magnate. It’s really all about how you
wear it.

Although
luxury fashion and beauty is normally associated with women, in the world of
luxury fabrics and tailoring some of the most expensive men’s suits are still
ludicrously extravagant in terms of pricing and quality. Most of us might
blanch at the necessity of paying US$1,000 for a nice suit.

Despite these blaring truths,
I openly admit that I do not know the brands and especially the more expensive
ones. It’s really neither here nor there for me. When I look at it or when I
put it on, no matter who likes it, if I am not feeling it, it’s a no go.

Why don’t we pursue our expensive taste more often than not?

There are several varying answers to that question.

I know I prefer to give away my cash than use it to spend on
something expensive for myself.

I have learnt to balance and appreciate the much finer
things in life.

DISCLAIMER: I am in no way suggesting that those who persistently
pursue their expensive taste are not appreciative of the finer things in life.

People always find ways to get whatever it is that they want
from life. Our desires are amazing motivators to get us there and attract what
we want.
