Two nights ago I was walking down Chinatown in NYC with a male friend and he was teasing me about my bags. He was pointing out the fakes sold in Chinatown and asked "How do you feel about plonking down so much cash for the same bag that you see here? Makes you feel cheated, doesn't it?" I said "No, I don't." and then tried to launch into the merits of a REAL bag with good quality leather etc but he didn't get it. How many of you have had problems "explaining" this mentality to your friends?
