It's not strange. Anyone who bangs on about what labels they wear are seriously sad and up themselves. Some people actually believe that wearing a 'label' makes them special. Err, no, it makes you a tool.

But saying "I'm wearing my Birks" sounds a lot better than saying "I'm wearing my Jesus sandals".

If you say so. I think you'd sound a tool saying or doing either.

No, a dodgy one. They are so not a good look. The only thing in their favour is that they're better than Crocs but that means bugger all.

Ain't that the truth, Jen. Who cares who thinks they're feral, only for lesbians (we must have that discussion on BE every six months or so), yadda yadda - in 20 years' time we'll be the ones still with decent feet and no back/knee problems when all the smelly rubber flip-flop wearers are spending their pensions at the podiatrist and chiropractor

I have, um, about 8? pairs of Birks and Mephistos, which are very similar. I know somebody with 30

(I bought all mine in Singapore but I couldn't tell you how the prices compare, as I have the memory of a menopausal goldfish.)

Wearing a 'label' and shouting about it makes you (general) a tool. People who consider themselves somehow better than others because they only wear so called designer or 'label' clothes are tools. Is that clear enough for you?

Right.... a bit like when people are rude isn't it? They are tools in my book...
