I sent this letter on February 21, and am yet waiting for a reply. It surely looks like that I shouldn’t be holding my breath.
If ‘austerity’ is named Word Of The Year 2010, why do you keep advertising $150 ties, $500 shirts, $2000 suits, $10,000 watches and $50,000 cars? What is wrong with a $25 shirt and tie, $300 suit and $300 watch? They are as functional, and as for attractiveness and comfort, it’s in the eye of the beholder. After all, the median household income in this country is $52,020, which leaves no room for a $50,000 car. Even for a man who makes twice as much, it still doesn’t compute.
We all like to dream and some of us dream with our eyes open. Nothing is wrong with the dreaming for high revenue, but in the times like this, people should have loftier and more spiritual goals than a $300 overnight bag.
