Do you agree? Are some of these actually worth the money?

Cherry Tung - Luxury Fashion & Money Hacks really? Resale? So you buy this status stuff so you can impress people and then you need to resell the item? Really if you’re as well off to do as you’re trying to look why not donate your stuff to relatives who can’t afford them or hand them down to your children.
I find this topic/argument very amusing. SO many people argue that designer brands should NOT cost so much because of their production cost/ material. But, is the price really just about the production cost or material? Brand value means nothing? An important factor that people FAIL to consider is VALUE RETENTION AND RESALE VALUE. If I buy $1000 worth of Ikea tote bags instead of LV bag, do you think I will be able to resell the Ikea bags after I'm sick and tired of them? If I try to resell my Forever 21 clothes, do you think they will sell at all? Sure, the material itself does not justify the price tag, but the demand is still there, for such item, made with such material and listed at such price. If you can boast the market value of so-called substitutes, then there wouldn't be VALUE RETENTION AND RESALE VALUE for LUXURY BRANDS. To each their own. Some people choose to buy for different reasons, whether it is happiness or status symbol. Some people choose to NOT buy, whether it is due to financial status or personal preferences. WHY DOES IT MATTER? What people choose to purchase is totally personal - NOT UP FOR JUDGMENT! If they are NOT spending YOUR MONEY, WHY DO YOU CARE?

William Shinn disagree about Rolex watch... they are clunky and too bulky on my arm and wrist. Mostly i wear my father’s Omega watch that he bought in the late 1950 s with a new band. Had it reconditioned by a jeweler with exact parts needed. New band.

And you have clearly no idea what Rolex is and Rolex isn't overpriced just look at Patek Philipp where you could pay 400k for a watch that you can buy from Jäger lecoultre for half of that with the same movement in it

Omega does lots of reissues from the past and they do too many variations of everything and never focused on their design ethos. Rolex never went down from what they are and thus hold value. You don't have to consider reselling a timepiece but it's better to have Rolex that stays true to its designs and marketing unlike Omega. Rolex also has the most robust accurate movements in them. Real luxury is something like Philippe Dufour, Credor, A.Lange, Patek or F.P.Journe that lies in the jewellery category which also has real horological significance.

Even if I had the money to buy all of these brands I would rather help someone who doesn't even have clothes,shoes, or even water to drink. So it's really a waste to buy these things for thousands of dollars while you can help and save someone's life which is more precious than millions of dollars.

ebonynemesis (24 days ago)
I think the video completely missed the concept of luxury, the value here in the 'value for money' consideration does not equate cost of production or usability of the product, but rather the prestige (ie recognition and exposure) associated with owning a luxury brand, especially in a society so obsessed with appearances of wealth via social media
Morten Aanstad (20 days ago)
Oh please, it's proven in multiple surveys that rich people actually spend less money on fashion than the poor ones. The majority of celebs don't have any fashion sense either, for example Donald Trump, Mark Zuckerberg, Simon Cowell, Kanye West, and Brad Pitt. Even in my local environment I've managed to be influential without wearing any luxury product; I have never bought something for over $250 apart from suits, and I could spend more if I wanted but have decided not to

People need to shut up, we all know the whole name brand thing and how you pay for the brand and not quality. But just shut up!! If people are buying from these companies its cuz they like what they have to offer. If you look at your normal middle class clothing compared to luxury brands there is a huge spike in authenticity (To a limit). Most people are saying 'They are not worth the money' but we all know 95% of them can't even afford it. I'll be honest, i cant! But we all like expensive things so thats why these companies are still going. Just by saying "yOu aRe paYiNg fOr thE nAmE bRaND nOt qUaliTy" isnt gonna do anything to convince someone. I Bet all my money in my bank account that you have bought something cuz of the name brand at least once (Im talking to your average middle class person, i know some people cant even afford normal clothing.) Its a status symbol we get it!

I just started buying LV but I understand that it is not worth the high price tag but so is the other high-end designers. At least LV doesn’t charge as much as the other designers with there monogram and durable goods. I am trying to get a Rolex also because it’s such a classic look. If you want known designers, you just have to pay for it.

I collect different bags. Louis Vuitton, Coach, Brahmin, Michael Kors, Dooney and Bourke..... By FAR the Coach have been the better made, lasted longest and look good longest. I won't buy any more Louis Vuitton. I paid $4400 for one and the strap fell off within two months. The handles get nasty and to me, just aren't as quality as Coach. Louis did repair the bag but for $4400, that's ridiculous. That particular bag was leather but a lot of the bags are only coated canvas, of which I also own. I think it's ridiculous since I have now found better ones for cheaper.

I can afford these, but I see no reason why I should buy them. In terms of quality, they passed the limit a long time ago. In terms of status, no one will look up to you unless you've actually accomplished something. In terms of looking rich, you will only be viewed as an insecure show-off and someone who's irresponsible with his/her money

The Montblanc reference in the video was not even a critique to the brand. "If you're not a president you can just use a regular pen". Yeah, I know I can, just like any luxury product it has its poor relative substitute, but in this case, for those who appreciate the art of writing, a good pen makes all the difference, and the craftsmanship behind those pens make it worth their price. Just like watches, you can tell time on a 1$ watch and even on a sun watch, however, you cannot compare that to having a Philippe Patek on your wrist. Those are two different leagues. One is a mere functional item (that may not even function very well, or function for a long time) the other one not only does that but is also a piece of art cuddling your wrist. Luxury brands that stand out start by having something special behind their brand, their fame does not begin by people "just paying for the brand". In the beginning people buy the item because of the originality of the design, the quality of the materials that compose the item and/or and the customer service behind it. Buying luxury brands is not about the "need" for the use of the object, it's about the "need" to feel good and special after buying that certain thing (either because you worked hard to earn it, because others are not able to afford it that easily and/or because you are holding in your hands something that was not mass produced, but was produced with extra care and now its yours).
Morten Aanstad (1 month ago)
Who the hell flashes his/her pen and appreciate the craftmanship behind that? A pen isn't really considered a style accessory, and as soon as someone sells something for insane prices, then I'm starting to wonder if that person really cares about art rather than greed and commercialism. And in terms of feeling good because you've earned something, then I would feel good about actually accomplishing something such as a job position, an acting job, an award, or placing high in a tournament, and I would feel much better about affording a nice house or going on an expensive vacation

I totally disagree about rolex. Omega costs almost the same, but it nothing in comparison to rolex, which has in-house movements, better quality of every piece, rich history and the name. Rolex is rolex. And it's actually not really expensive in comparison to many other swiss luxury watches, which often cost even more. Just like hublot, Audemars Piguet, IWC etc. P.S. Omega is part of Swatch Group, that also produces 50 bucks watches. Rolex is still independent.

You are not only buying the product itself but also the experience you have and brand marketing. Without brand marketing, most people don't even know the brand exists, and won't consider them to be a status of luxury although you might not like the price tag. Yes they cost a lot, but there are also lots and lots of people working for the brand, so you are not only paying for the product and people who make it, but also people who design it, rent for shops, security, sales, interior design bla bla bla....... Sometimes the whole experience (from the moment you see the product maybe on ads or image, to walk into the store get served, put the product in very nice packaging, to when you actually wearing/using and feeling it with the nice finishing and fine details) is better then what you can have from lower brands. Luxury is not essentials, buy it and appreciate the efforts for people work behind. After all they are not charity.

All of it is true with the exception of mechanical watches aka chronometers. Rolex, Patek, VC etc... are more about the complication-horology legacy that goes into mechanical watch making involving thousands of parts which keeps precise time with winding and never needing electrical charge, water resistant up to 1000 meters and such...As opposed to fashion accessories which in 2019 can all be made quite cheaply with the advancements of manufacturing tech. Great health data was not readily available to people and thus why alcoholic toxins and painful shoes, apparel etc...were able to dupe so many into buying these so called status symbols...but much harder to do in modern day. Mechanical watches are a horological technical feat in itself and thus the legacy actually carries value NOT just shallow hype!

I used to think big brands aren't worth it until I bought one, they charge for quality and stand behind their product. Take LV for example: Wife had a 6 year old LV bag, the company was going through some testing and figured that at a certain temperature the leather gets a bit sticky and could be an issue, they called us to bring the bag in, in whatever condition for a full refund or exchange. Big Brands= Quality. It's unfortunate that the mark up is huge but they're not just selling you any quality. Buying big brand products is really an investment

Not saying you can't find other quality products for less but what I am saying is people buy these because they can afford them and understand they are a status symbol. They don't think about the price because rocking a designer bag trumps the price.  Those who can afford it buy it.  Those who cant make videos proclaiming certain brands are over-priced.
Morten Aanstad (2 months ago)
I can afford these, but why the hell should I? I've made a huge impression in my environments and achieved my accomplishments with clothes for 1/2 or even 1/3 of the price. And if you want to get somewhere, then you actually need to work for it. Wearing a Gucci shirt at a job interview doesn't immediately give you your dream job
