    A high-end compact digital camera.

    One reason is that I can't decide on one to get (many to consider from Fujifilm, Panasonic, Sony, and Canon mainly), another is I'm not sure how much I'd realistically use it, another is I'm afraid new models are imminent.

    So it's something I think about but will probably not buy any time soon. I said the same thing months ago.

    Oh yeah, and I want some Fendi slides. But I guess those aren't "reasonable" :p

    You've got to be joking, right? Plenty of high end fashion I personally would never buy, but I can still see the 'value' others see in it. No doubt these are quality made. But I see nothing beyond a high end fashion statement, and a douchey one at that. What on earth do you see in these? :nah:

    Ever since I realized I practically live in slides during the summer (I have a couple pairs by other brands), I decided wanted to get some more and I'd rather get some made in Italy than made in China. Those aren't necessarily my top choice, but they're in the running (I'd probably go with the off-white ones because I think the off-white and the leather look better together). :D

    Yes, the functionality I can understand. But why not go with a surf line like Billabong, Quiksilver, or Rip Curl? The Fendi's are so ostentatious. And they're priced over $300 (or is this the real reason, as the others are just too 'ordinary' and you wouldn't be making a 'statement').

    Those slides look incredibly heavy (for a pair of sandals) and uncomfortable. Then again, I'm also a Birkenstock kind of person and have been told that I dress like a lesbian in her late 30's, so my fashion advice is probably best left ignored.

    $300 to you is like $30 to Ichy.
    So, you should ask if they would be worth it to you for $30.

    Those leather+white slides are my favorite's too, and would go nicely with a nice pair of Fendi White and / or Coach White / Gold Sunglasses.

    You missed by major point that they look so ostentatious, gaudy, and douchey. Whenever a high end brand plasters their brand name in such an manner, I immediately believe someone is just trying to show off their wares. If it's incorporated in a classy way, I have no problem with it. Price was a secondary component of what I was stating. And if the superior quality would be the factor, again, no problem. Also, I'm sure Itchy has a substantial trust fund given to him by his parents, but beyond this I seriously doubt he's amassed a net worth and has obtained an income level equal to mine. If they were a pair of lets say Farragamo shoes, I'd have no problem purchasing them myself, nor would I have brought this observation up with Itchy.

    So what fashion statement do you want to make by wearing Hawaiian shirts - midlife crisis?
